Gopher Control needed from gopher mound

Gopher Mound

Our normal approach for gopher eradication Lake Elsinore, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.

Because of this our gopher eradication  Lake Elsinore begins by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your Lake Elsinore yard. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher eradication Lake Elsinore. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. With two differnt control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.


Why do you not use gopher poison]?

Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers in Lake Elsinore, Ca but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little better but still not high enough.

Not only does gopher bait not having good results for gopher extermination it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will push poison from their burrows if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait on your Lake Elsinore property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison is 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 several feet down in Lake Elsinore. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.

The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let a pest control company serving Lake Elsinore tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the reason for traps?

Here at Rodent Guys we have used many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years in Lake Elsinore. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe. No doubt about when you remove 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 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 Lake Elsinore.

The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young 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 Lake Elsinore, Ca.
