Our normal method for gopher control for Santa Paula, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to rat poison. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Santa Paula pets and other wildlife along with predatory birds is great.
Because of this our gopher control Santa Paula begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Santa Paula property. Most traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their locations. We typically will allow the traps 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 out of the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher control in Santa Paula. 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 offspring in the burrow. Using two types of control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to offer the longest guarantee for gopher control in Santa Paula, CA.
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them have good effectiveness. Even the professional version of gopher bait available to us, a licensed pest control company, having limited efficiency. Strychnine is known to be only 50-60% effective as a standalone technique of gopher control. We have noticed with these poisons a bit better but still not up to our standards in Santa Paula.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher control in Santa Paula it is also very lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife as well as a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison from their tunnels if they don’t plan 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 deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the tunnel going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Santa Paula lawn are two to eight inches below 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 consuming a dead or dying gopher that ate the poison. The lethal 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 highly recommended to not use gopher bait and don’t allow a pest control company serving Santa Paula tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Santa Paula. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide method we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher eradication.
The carbon monoxide fills 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. 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 Santa Paula, CA.
