What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
Serveral poisons are sold for controlling gophers in Jurupa Valley, Ca but few of them have good effeciency. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be mearly fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit higher but still 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 as well as children. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison on your Jurupa Valley home. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Jurupa Valley. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Jurupa Valley tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?

Why use carbon monoxide?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since 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 best chances of full gopher extermination in Jurupa Valley.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 around 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 exhaust down in the tunnel.
