The typical approach for gopher trapping for Saticoy, CA residential and commercial gopher removal is combined with traps and gas injection. We do not use the usual poison bait which is strychnine or gopher bait similar to rat poison.

The traps are positioned inside the gopher’s tunnel with irrigation flags showing their locations. We typically will let the gopher traps sit for 1-7 days depending on schedule, weather and the technician’s recommendation.

Besides gopher poison not having good control for gopher trapping in Saticoy it is also extremely lethal to dogs, cats and wildlife not to mention a child.

Once the bait is above ground it is now available for anyone (children, dogs, cats and other wildlife) to consume the lethal bait. Poisons such as strychnine have no antidote and kill in roughly 30 minutes.
The other way for exposure to the poison is if a dog digs into the tunnel going after the gopher and eats the bait.

The tunnels on your Saticoy landscape are two to eight inches down and easy to dig since the tunneling removed a lot of the dirt previously.
