The normal approach for gopher removal Lake Elsinore, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other animals including predatory birds is great.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher removal Lake Elsinore starts out with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Lake Elsinore location. These traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing 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 Rodent Guys come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher removal Lake Elsinore. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the young in the nest. With two differnt techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers in Lake Elsinore, Ca but few of them work well. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to 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 method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher poison not having good results for gopher extermination it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait on your Lake Elsinore property. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and consumes the poison. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Lake Elsinore. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much 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 ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Lake Elsinore tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use carbon monoxide?
We know people want their gopher infestation 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 highest chances of full gopher eradication in Lake Elsinore.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets 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 Lake Elsinore, Ca.
