Our normal approach for gopher control for Newbury Park, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison. We have concluded their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Newbury Park pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher control Newbury Park begins by trapping in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Newbury Park property. Most traps are placed down into the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. We normally will let 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 pulled out of the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher control in Newbury Park. We will then use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including any young in the nest. Using two differnt techniques such as these gives excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher control in Newbury Park, CA.
Various poisons are sold for controlling gophers but few of them have good control. Even the commercial version of gopher poison available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better than that but not too low for repeatable results in Newbury Park.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Newbury Park it is also extremely dangerous to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison from their burrows when they don’t intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now in reach for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies fool you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Newbury Park yard are 2-8″ below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the ground previously.
The (other|last} common 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 poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your pet eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you have dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Newbury Park tell you it is safe – it is not.
What is the reason for traps for removing gophers?
Here at our pest company we have played with many techniques for gopher extermination in the past few years. The main reasons to use trapping as a primary method of gopher pest removal in Newbury Park is it works extremely well and is wildlife safe.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know people want their gopher problem solved right away in Newbury Park. 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 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 about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After the machines are switched 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 Newbury Park, CA.
