Our typical method for gopher control for Camarillo, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is a combination of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Camarillo pets and other animals including predatory birds is high.
Instead our gopher control Camarillo begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher activity on your Camarillo yard. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with markers displaying their positions. We normally will let the traps sit for 1-7 days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to pick-up the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Camarillo. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow taking care of any other gophers in the burrow including any offspring in the nest. Using two types of techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the best guarantee for gopher control in Camarillo, CA.
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. This includes the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is reported to be mearly 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is slightly higher than that but still not too low for repeatable results in Camarillo.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Camarillo it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they don’t plan to consume it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the lethal bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in around 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and gets into the poison. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Camarillo yard are 2-8″ down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt already.
The (other|last} common 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 it is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Camarillo tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know customers want their gopher infestation fixed quickly in Camarillo. 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 extermination.
The carbon monoxide fills the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable 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 around thirty seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including babies in the nest. Once the machines are switched off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. People and pets above ground are unaffected by the gasses down in the tunnel.
