Based on this Rodent Guys San Gabriel gopher extermination starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent activity on your location. The traps are inserted down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the burrow. With 2 separate techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control in San Gabriel allowing Rodent Guys to give the longest guarantee.
Why not not use poison for gopher extermination in San Gabriel?
There are many poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness as a method alone. This includes the professional strength of gopher bait sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control for your San Gabriel property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit higher than that but not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child for your San Gabriel gopher extermination project. At times gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly thirty minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let technicians lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your San Gabriel yard are 2-8″ below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The last way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and do not let pest control companies serving San Gabriel, CA try to tell you it is safe – it is not.
Why use traps?
We have played with many methods for gopher eradication in the past few years. In San Gabriel, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal is it works very well and is child safe. There is no doubt when you remove a gopher that you have removed the issue.
Why use carbon monoxide?
We know San Gabriel people want their gopher infestation 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.
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 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. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates from the gopher tunnels of your San Gabriel property. 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 laws for everyone’s safety.
