The normal approach for gopher control for Fillmore, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of traps and gas injection. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Fillmore pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Instead our gopher control Fillmore starts out by trapping inside the gopher tunnels nearby the recent gopher evidence on your Fillmore location. These traps are inserted inside the gopher’s tunnel using irrigation flags marking their positions. We typically will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven days varying on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps all of the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Fillmore. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any more gophers in the burrow including the babies in the burrow.

There are many poison baits are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good effeciency. Even the professional version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, is limited in its effectiveness. Strychnine is known to be mearly fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little higher than that but still not up to our standards in Fillmore.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Fillmore it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention children. At times gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels if they don’t plan to consume it (this happens commonly). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now available for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and gets into the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies trick you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Fillmore landscape are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the ground previously.
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 ate the bait. The bait is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and do not let pest control companies serving Fillmore try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know customers want their gopher infestation solved right away in Fillmore. 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 best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide floods 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 eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the burrow. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates out of the gopher tunnels. Above ground people and pets are unaffected by the exhaust down in the tunnel. Our machines are registered and approved by EPA and State of California regulations for everyone’s safety in Fillmore, CA.
