The normal method for residential gopher removal in La Canada Flintridge and commercial gopher removal in La Canada Flintridge is a combination of trapping and gas injection. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your dogs, cats and children and other animals including predatory birds is elevated.
Because of this Rodent Guys La Canada Flintridge gopher removal begins by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent activity on your yard. The traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be pulled out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our La Canada Flintridge gopher removal. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. With two types of methods such as these gives excellent gopher control in La Canada Flintridge allowing us to give the best guarantee.
The reason to not use poison for gopher removal in La Canada Flintridge?
There are many poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the commercial strength of gopher poison available 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 technique of gopher control for your La Canada Flintridge property. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but still not high enough.
Besides gopher bait not having good control it is also very dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child for your La Canada Flintridge gopher removal project. At times gophers will eject poison from their tunnels when they don’t plan to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other wildlife) to eat the deadly poison. 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 gets into the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your La Canada Flintridge landscape are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt already.
The last common way for your pet or wildlife to be poisoned by gopher poison is by consuming 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 he eats the poison as well. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t allow a pest control company serving La Canada Flintridge, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many techniques for gopher extermination for our customers over the years.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows La Canada Flintridge people 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 separate technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the highest chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The entire system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your La Canada Flintridge 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.
