The typical method for gopher trapping for Oxnard, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher poison similar to that of rat poison bait. We have found their effectiveness is low and the danger to your Oxnard dogs, cats and children and other wildlife along with predatory birds is high.
Because of this our gopher trapping Oxnard begins with setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher evidence on your Oxnard location. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags marking their positions. We typically will let the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we come to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be pulled from the tunnels which is the first phase of our gopher trapping in Oxnard. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to funnel carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow eliminating any other gophers in the burrow including any babies in the burrow. Utilizing two seperate methods such as these gives fantastic gopher control allowing us to give the best guarantee for gopher trapping in Oxnard, CA.
Various poison baits are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work effectively. Even the professional strength of gopher poison sold to 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. Our experience with these poisons is a bit better but not too low for repeatable results in Oxnard.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Oxnard it is also quite lethal to pets and wildlife as well as children. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their tunnels when they do not intend to eat it (this is common). When the gopher bait is pushed above ground it is now exposed for anyone (child, pet, other animals) to eat the deadly poison. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill quickly in roughly 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the lethal bait. Don’t let pest control companies lie to you, the main tunnels are not multiple feet down. The tunnels on your Oxnard yard are two to eight inches below and easy to excavate since the tunneling removed quite a bit of the soil 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 dog eats the gopher it he eats the poison as well. If you have dogs it is strongly recommended to not use gopher bait and do not allow pest control companies serving Oxnard try to tell you it is safe – it is not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know people want their gopher infestation solved quickly in Oxnard. When we follow our trapping program up with a carbon monoxide treatment we have now used a totally different technique utilizing a different technology to help ensure the best chances of full gopher extermination.
The carbon monoxide floods the gopher burrow system with an unbreathable environment which only requires them to breath as a method of control. The whole system which is connected by tunneling is filled with this lethal gas in around 30 seconds and will exterminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the burrow. After 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.
