Our typical approach for gopher control Jurupa Valley, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.

These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. Using 2 differnt techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers in Jurupa Valley, Ca but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Not only does gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly bait on your Jurupa Valley property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Jurupa Valley. The tunnels on your property are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the dirt previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow a pest control company serving Jurupa Valley try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
