Our typical approach for gopher removal Canyon Lake, CA home and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this Rodent Guys gopher removal Canyon Lake begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Canyon Lake location. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we 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 removal Canyon Lake. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. Utilizing two types of control techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee.
What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers in Canyon Lake, Ca but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will force poison from their burrows if they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait on your Canyon Lake home. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill 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 gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Canyon Lake. The tunnels on your lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Canyon Lake tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher infestation solved right away. Since 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 Canyon Lake.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Canyon Lake, Ca.
