Our typical method for gopher control Riverside, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this our gopher control Riverside starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher evidence on your Riverside home. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control Riverside. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. Using two differnt techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use gopher poison]?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers in Riverside, Ca but few of them have good control. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good results for gopher extermination it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will force poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to consume the lethal poison on your Riverside property. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Riverside. The tunnels on your landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Riverside try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest.
