Why do you not use gopher poison]?
While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers in Murrieta, Ca but few of them work well. Even the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher but still not up to our standards.
Not only does gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait on your Murrieta property. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Murrieta. The tunnels on your yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. The poison 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t allow pest control companies serving Murrieta tell you it is safe – its not.

The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel.
