Gopher Control needed from gopher mound

Gopher Mound

The typical approach for gopher trapping Lake Elsinore, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.

Because of this Rodent Guys gopher trapping  Lake Elsinore begins with trapping inside the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Lake Elsinore yard. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with 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 arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping Lake Elsinore. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including any offspring in the burrow. With two differnt control techniques such as these offers fantastic gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the best guarantee.


Why do you not use gopher poison]?

While many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers in Lake Elsinore, Ca but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons a bit better than that but still not too low for repeatable results.

Not only does gopher bait not having good control for gopher extermination it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to consume the lethal bait on your Lake Elsinore home. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.

Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down in Lake Elsinore. The tunnels on your lawn are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground already.

The other common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The 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 poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Lake Elsinore try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

Why use traps?

We have used many methods for gopher eradication for our customers over the years in Lake Elsinore. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. No doubt about when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.

Why use carbon monoxide?

We know people want their gopher infestation fixed quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication in Lake Elsinore.

The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable 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 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including babies 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. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety for use in Lake Elsinore, Ca.
