Gopher Control needed from gopher mound

Gopher Mound

The typical approach for gopher trapping Canyon Lake, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.

Because of this Rodent Guys gopher trapping  Canyon Lake starts out with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Canyon Lake yard. These traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping Canyon Lake. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the tunnel including the babies in the burrow. With 2 types of techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.


The reason to not use gopher poison]?

There are many poisons are sold for controlling gophers in Canyon Lake, Ca but few of them work well. 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. We have seen with these poisons a little higher but still not high enough.

Besides gopher poison not having good results for gopher extermination it is also quite dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. At times 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 in reach for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait on your Canyon Lake property. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.

The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down in Canyon Lake. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.

The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not allow a pest control company serving Canyon Lake try to tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the reason for traps?

Here at Rodent Guys we have played with many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years in Canyon Lake. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you pull out a gopher that you have solved the issue.

Reason for using carbon monoxide?

Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem fixed quickly. Since we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination in Canyon Lake.

The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground 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 Canyon Lake, Ca.
