These traps are positioned down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags displaying their positions. Rodent Guys typically will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

Why not not use gopher poison]?
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers in Moreno Valley, 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 known to be mearly fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly higher but still not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having good results for gopher extermination it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they do not plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal poison on your Moreno Valley home. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface in Moreno Valley. The tunnels on your landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil previously.
The last 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 bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let pest control companies serving Moreno Valley try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
