Gopher Control needed from gopher mound

Gopher Mound

Our normal method for gopher eradication Canyon Lake, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.

Instead our gopher eradication  Canyon Lake begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Canyon Lake yard. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication Canyon Lake. 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 babies in the nest. Utilizing two differnt methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee.


The reason to not use gopher poison]?

There are many poison baits are available for controlling gophers in Canyon Lake, Ca but few of them have good control. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher but still not up to our standards.

Not only does gopher bait 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 push poison out of their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal bait on your Canyon Lake home. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Canyon Lake. The tunnels on your property are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt 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 bait. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Canyon Lake try to tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the reason for traps?

Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many techniques for gopher control in the past few years in Canyon Lake. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?

We know people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination 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 deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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.
