Our normal approach for gopher trapping Murrieta, 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 that of rat poison 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 elevated.
Based on this our gopher trapping Murrieta begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Murrieta home. Most traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping Murrieta. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. With two seperate methods such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use gopher poison]?
Various poison baits are sold for controlling gophers in Murrieta, Ca but few of them have good control. Even the commercial strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher but still not up to our standards.
Not only does gopher poison not having good results for gopher extermination it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will eject 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 eat the lethal poison on your Murrieta home. 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 burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to 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 much of the ground previously.
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 lethal bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow a pest control company serving Murrieta tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?

The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal 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?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication in Murrieta.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unlivable 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 thirty seconds and will eliminate 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 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 Murrieta, Ca.
