Our normal method for gopher trapping Norco, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is high.
This is why Rodent Guys gopher trapping Norco begins with setting traps inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Norco location. Most traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with small flags marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping Norco. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. Utilizing two differnt techniques such as these gives great gopher control allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why not not use gopher poison]?
Various poisons are available for controlling gophers in Norco, Ca but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the professional strength of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have seen with these poisons slightly better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher extermination it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as children. At times gophers will force poison from their tunnels when they don’t intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to consume the deadly bait on your Norco home. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface in Norco. The tunnels on your yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating 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 he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Norco tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows people want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination in Norco.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 deadly gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Norco, Ca.
