Our residential treatment for gophers has no poisons and is safe for kids, dogs, cats and other wildlife.

The typical method for residential gopher eradication in San Marino and commercial gopher removal in San Marino 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 poisonous bait. We have concluded their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is great.
Based on this Rodent Guys San Marino gopher eradication starts out by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent evidence on your yard. Most traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers displaying their positions. Rodent Guys normally will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our San Marino gopher eradication. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the tunnel including any babies in the nest. Utilizing 2 different methods such as these gives excellent gopher control in San Marino allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher eradication in San Marino?
Several poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them have good control as a sole control. This includes the commercial strength of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is reported to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your San Marino property. Our experience with these poisons is slightly better than that but not up to our standards.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife as well as children for your San Marino gopher eradication project. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows if they do not intend to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n 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 San Marino landscape are 2-8″ down and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the soil previously.
The other common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that ate the bait. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow pest control companies serving San Marino, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
Why use traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher control in the past few years. In San Marino, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works extremely well and is pet safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the problem.
Why use carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows San Marino customers want their gopher problem fixed right away. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your San Marino property. 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 laws for your safety.
