Why do you not use gopher poison]?
While many poisons are available for controlling gophers in Jurupa Valley, Ca but few of them work well. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Not only does gopher bait not having good results for gopher extermination it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison on your Jurupa Valley property. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is 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 multiple feet below the surface in Jurupa Valley. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil already.

The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Jurupa Valley tell you it is safe – its not.
