The normal method for gopher trapping for Camarillo, CA home and commercial gopher removal is combined with trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poisonous bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Camarillo pets and other wildlife including predatory birds is great.
This is why our gopher trapping Camarillo begins with trapping in the gopher tunnels nearby the most recent gopher activity on your Camarillo location. These traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with markers showing their positions. We normally will allow the gopher traps sit for one to seven 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 first phase of our gopher trapping in Camarillo. We will then 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 young in the nest. With 2 seperate control techniques such as these offers excellent gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Camarillo, CA.
Serveral poisons are available for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial version of gopher poison sold to to us, a licensed pest control company, has poor results. Strychnine is known to be mearly fifty to sixty percent effective as a standalone method of gopher control. Our experience with these poisons is a little better but not too low for repeatable results in Camarillo.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Camarillo it is also extremely dangerous to pets and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will push poison out of their burrows if they don’t intend to consume it (this happens commonly). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the burrow going after the gopher and digs down to the poison. Don’t let technicians trick you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet below the surface. The tunnels on your Camarillo property are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the soil already.
The (other|last} way for your pet or wildlife to get poisoned by gopher bait is by eating a dead or dying gopher that consumed the bait. 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 strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not let a pest control company serving Camarillo tell you it is safe – its not.

Why use carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know people want their gopher problem solved quickly in Camarillo. When we follow our trapping up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally separate method utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unlivable environment which only needs them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this deadly gas in about 30 seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including offspring in the nest. After the machines are turned off the gas quickly dissipates from 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 Camarillo, CA.
