Our residential treatment for gophers uses no poisons and is safe for kids, pets and other animals.

The typical method for home gopher control in Gardena and commercial gopher removal in Gardena is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this Rodent Guys Gardena gopher control starts out with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your location. The traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags showing their positions. Rodent Guys normally 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 out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our Gardena gopher control. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any more gophers in the burrow including the offspring in the nest. Using two separate techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Gardena allowing Rodent Guys to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher control in Gardena?
Several poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your Gardena property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher poison not having acceptable control it is also very lethal to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your Gardena gopher control project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the bait. Don’t let pest control companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Gardena property are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be 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 dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t let a pest control company serving Gardena, CA tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
We have used many methods for gopher extermination in the past few years. In Gardena, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is child safe. No doubt about when you pull out a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows Gardena customers want their gopher problem solved right away. Since we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your Gardena property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for your safety.
