We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the burrow.

Why not not use gopher poison]?
There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers in Canyon Lake, Ca but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but not too low for repeatable results.
Not only does gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they do not plan to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison on your Canyon Lake home. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Canyon Lake. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Canyon Lake tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows customers want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication in Canyon Lake.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety for use in Canyon Lake, Ca.
