At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.

What reason do we not use gopher poison]?
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers in Murrieta, Ca but few of them work well. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons slightly higher but not high enough.
Not only does gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows if they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait on your Murrieta property. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Murrieta. The tunnels on your lawn are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The last 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 pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving Murrieta tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use carbon monoxide?

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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies 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.
