The normal method for gopher extermination Norco, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Based on this our gopher extermination Norco starts out with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Norco home. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When Rodent Guys come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher extermination Norco. 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 babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers in Norco, Ca but few of them have good effectiveness. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a little better than that but still not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they do not intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly poison on your Norco property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Norco. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Norco tell you it is safe – it is 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 program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication in Norco.
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 deadly gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once 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 Norco, Ca.
