Gopher extermination for Los Angeles County

The past two years have been a struggle for pest control companies to gain control of pocket gophers in Los Angeles County. The reason exterminators are having gopher removal issues is because of laws that have prohibited the use of a gopher control product called aluminum phosphide (Fumitoxin).

Fumitoxin is an extremely effective gopher poison that for years was used in Los Angeles County. When new regulations were adopted by the EPA and handed down to the State of California, Los Angeles County banned the use of the product for any residential use. The regulation has been softened by allowing pest control companies to exterminate gophers in Los Angeles, CA and the rest of the county with Fumitoxin.

This is great news for pest control companies who offer gopher extermination services. The one catch is there must be a 100 foot barrier between any building where humans and/or domestic animals reside and the application of this gopher poison. This barrier makes it unusable in most residential properties but does allow more application sites available than with the previous total residential ban.

Fumitoxin will now be allowed for gopher control Los Angeles on residential, nursing homes, schools, day care facilities and hospital properties as long as the 100 foot barrier is adhered to. This will aid companies in gaining control of gophers quicker and cheaper on properties that can allow for the space between applications.

Companies with Agricultural Pest Control Licenses are the only companies licensed to perform this type of pest control. Regular pest control companies such as ones they do rats in the attic or termites normally do not have this license. They typically have a structural license which does not qualify them for gopher extermination which an agricultural pest.
