Our normal approach for residential gopher extermination in Rolling Hills Estates and commercial gopher removal in Rolling Hills Estates is a combination of trapping and carbon monoxide.

Based on this Rodent Guys Rolling Hills Estates gopher extermination begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your location. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their positions. Rodent Guys typically 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 the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our Rolling Hills Estates gopher extermination. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. With 2 separate control techniques such as these offers great gopher control in Rolling Hills Estates allowing us to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher extermination in Rolling Hills Estates?
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively as a sole control. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be merely fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your Rolling Hills Estates property. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not high enough.
Besides gopher poison not having great control it is also extremely lethal to pets and wildlife as well as a child for your Rolling Hills Estates gopher extermination project. Sometimes gophers will force poison from their tunnels if they do not intend to eat it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the bait. Don’t let companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Rolling Hills Estates yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the ground previously.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. 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 poison and do not allow pest control companies serving Rolling Hills Estates, CA tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps?

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
We know Rolling Hills Estates people want their gopher problem solved quickly. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an UN-breathable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your Rolling Hills Estates property. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our devices are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for your safety.
