The reason to not use gopher poison]?
Various poison baits are available for controlling gophers in San Jacinto, Ca but few of them work effectively. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but not high enough.
Not only does gopher bait not having good results for gopher extermination it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly bait on your San Jacinto property. 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 into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in San Jacinto. The tunnels on your lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate 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 consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving San Jacinto 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 whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety for use in San Jacinto, Ca.
