Our typical method for gopher trapping for Port Hueneme, CA home and commercial gopher removal is dual process of trapping and carbon monoxide. We do not use the normal poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poisonous bait. We have found their effectiveness is limited and the danger to your Port Hueneme pets and other animals along with predatory birds is high.
This is why our gopher trapping Port Hueneme starts out by setting traps in the gopher tunnels near recent gopher activity on your Port Hueneme location. These traps are placed inside the gopher’s tunnel using small flags displaying their locations. We typically will allow the traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.
When we arrive to retrieve the traps the dead gophers will be removed from the tunnels which is the 1st phase of our gopher trapping in Port Hueneme. After the trapping we will use our carbon monoxide machines to inject carbon monoxide gas into the gopher burrow killing any more gophers in the burrow including the young in the nest. Utilizing 2 types of control techniques such as these offers great gopher control allowing us to give the longest guarantee for gopher trapping in Port Hueneme, CA.
There are many poisons are manufactured for controlling gophers but few of them work well. This includes the commercial version of gopher bait 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 not too low for repeatable results in Port Hueneme.
Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Port Hueneme it is also quite lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child. Sometimes gophers will eject poison out of their burrows when they don’t intend to consume it (this is common). Once the bait is above ground it is now exposed for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to eat the lethal poison. Strychnine has no antidote and kills in about 30 minutes.
Another way for exposure to the poison would be if a dog digs down n the burrow going after the gopher and consumes the bait. Don’t let technicians fool you, the main tunnels are not several feet down. The tunnels on your Port Hueneme yard are two to eight inches below and easy to dig since the tunneling removed much of the dirt previously.
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 poison. The poison is still in the gopher’s stomach and when your dog eats the gopher he is also eating the gopher bait. If you own dogs it is highly recommended to not use gopher poiosn and don’t let pest control companies serving Port Hueneme try to tell you it is safe – its not.

What is the purpose of carbon monoxide to exterminate?
We know people want their gopher infestation fixed right away in Port Hueneme. When we follow our trapping program 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 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 deadly gas in around thirty seconds and will eliminate gophers within the tunnels including young in the nest. Once 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 Port Hueneme, CA.
