The normal method for residential gopher removal in La Habra Heights and commercial gopher removal in La Habra Heights is a combination of traps and carbon monoxide. At Rodent Guys we do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your pets and other animals along with predatory birds is elevated.
Instead Rodent Guys La Habra Heights gopher removal begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels near most recent activity on your home. The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel using markers marking their locations. Rodent Guys typically will allow the trap sets sit for one to seven days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the first phase of our La Habra Heights gopher removal. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to place carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the tunnel including the offspring in the burrow. With 2 separate techniques such as these gives fantastic gopher control in La Habra Heights allowing Rodent Guys to offer the longest guarantee.
Why do you not use poison for gopher removal in La Habra Heights?
While many poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them work well as a sole control. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is reported to be only fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control for your La Habra Heights property. We have seen with these poisons a bit higher than that but not too low for repeatable results.
Besides gopher bait not having acceptable control it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children for your La Habra Heights gopher removal project. Sometimes gophers will force 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 in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other animals) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly thirty minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not several feet below the surface. The tunnels on your La Habra Heights property are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The other way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poison and don’t let a pest control company serving La Habra Heights, CA try to tell you it is safe – its not.
What is the reason for traps?
Here at Rodent Guys we have used many ways for gopher extermination for our customers over the years. In La Habra Heights, the main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest control is it works very well and is pet-safe, child-safe, wildlife-safe.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide?
Rodent Guys knows La Habra Heights people want their gopher problem solved quickly. Since 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 needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in about thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels of your La Habra Heights property. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California laws for everyone’s safety.
