Gopher Control needed from gopher mound

Gopher Mound

Our typical approach for gopher extermination Canyon Lake, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.

Instead our gopher extermination  Canyon Lake starts out by setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Canyon Lake home. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When Rodent Guys arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher extermination Canyon Lake. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including the babies in the nest. Using 2 differnt methods such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.


The reason to not use gopher poison]?

Serveral poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers in Canyon Lake, Ca but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little better but not high enough.

Besides gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their burrows when they do not plan to eat 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 Canyon Lake home. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Canyon Lake. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.

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 dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Canyon Lake try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use traps?

We have used many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years in Canyon Lake. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the problem.

Why use carbon monoxide?

We know customers want their gopher infestation solved quickly. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication 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 whole 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 burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Canyon Lake, Ca.
