The typical approach for gopher extermination Murrieta, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys gopher extermination Murrieta starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Murrieta yard. The traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their locations. Rodent Guys normally will let the traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination Murrieta. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. Using two differnt techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
Why not not use gopher poison]?
While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers in Murrieta, Ca but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes 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 fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a little higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Not only does gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal poison on your Murrieta home. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel 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 down in Murrieta. The tunnels on your property are two to eight inches down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The other 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 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let a pest control company serving Murrieta try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?

Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication in Murrieta.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of 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 Murrieta, Ca.
