The normal approach for gopher control Murrieta, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this our gopher control Murrieta begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Murrieta property. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys normally will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control Murrieta. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow. Utilizing two seperate techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use gopher poison]?
While many poison baits are available for controlling gophers in Murrieta, Ca but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional version of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but not high enough.
Not only does gopher bait not having good results for gopher extermination it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will force poison out of their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait on your Murrieta home. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Murrieta. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Murrieta tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know people want their gopher infestation fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination in Murrieta.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Murrieta, Ca.
