The normal approach for gopher service San Jacinto, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher service San Jacinto begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent gopher activity on your San Jacinto location. The traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including any young in the burrow. Utilizing 2 differnt methods such as these gives great 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 San Jacinto, Ca but few of them work effectively. This includes the commercial strength of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but not up to our standards.
Not only does gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they do not plan 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 lethal bait on your San Jacinto property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another 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 San Jacinto. The tunnels on your lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
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 it he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving San Jacinto tell you it is safe – its not.

The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel.
