Barstow Wildlife Animal Control

Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Barstow, CA

If you have a problem with wildlife in your Barstow home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in California wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing California and Barstow, and I recommend the following:

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:

  • Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
  • Fully California and San Bernardino County licensed and insured
  • Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
  • Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
  • Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
  • Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste

  • Professional Wildlife Removal Services is a full-service Barstow wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Barstow pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Professional Wildlife Removal Services performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and cleanup is sometimes recommended.

    Barstow wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in California to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know. Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to California law. We offer Barstow raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.

    Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Professional Wildlife Removal Services. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Barstow squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.

    Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Barstow exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Barstow rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.

    Bat removal is a highly specialized task. California is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Barstow pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Barstow bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.

    If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Barstow trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Barstow wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Professional Wildlife Removal Services does both.

    The above are just some of the services offered by Professional Wildlife Removal Services. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. Professional Wildlife Removal Services also provides dead animal removal in Barstow. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Barstow snake removal - most of the snakes in California are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Barstow. And remember, we are a private business, not San Bernardino County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 1-800-472-5609. San Bernardino County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

    Barstow Wildlife Tip #1:

    What attracts squirrels?

    Squirrels can be darn cute. We've seen cartoons and TV shows depicting squirrels and they simply look utterly cute and playful. Squirrels are no doubt adorable creatures and seeing them doing their usual activities can be delightful to look at - except that sometimes they can be nuisances too.

    When Squirrels Become a Headache

    Squirrels have charming looks matched with their agility and impressively cunning skills. They are very smart creatures and are skillful diggers and climbers. These particular abilities make them nuisances in residential homes and gardens. Squirrels can easily turn your well-groomed garden into a huge mess. They can dig holes, damage your lawns, mess with your trash bins, and destroy your landscaping. They can also chew on your electric wires and insulators making them a serious fire hazards.

    Common Food Sources and Conditions That Squirrels Find Irresistible

    Squirrels love areas that are heavily wooded with trees, shrubs, and other plants. However, apart from their natural habitat, they may also find other places attractive which may bring them in your yard. Dealing with squirrels can be very challenging. They are not that easy to get rid of. They can also easily grow in number as female squirrels can have as many as eight babies with each litter. Additionally, squirrels can be considered as health threats as they can carry fleas, ringworms and other parasites.

    The best thing to do to avoid dealing with the nuisance that the squirrels can bring about to your property is to make sure that you are not making your home an attractive nest or food source for them.

    Below is an exhaustive list of what all items or conditions attract squirrels the most:

  • Squirrel-friendly trees like those which produce edible nuts or flowers will invite squirrels. Trees popular with several types of squirrels include the conifers such as spruces and pines, and deciduous trees such as willows and aspens.
  • Corn and nuts - Squirrel love corns and nuts specially walnuts, hickory nuts and acorns.
  • Peanut Butter - If you want one of the easiest types of bait that you can get for squirrels and also one of the most effective all you have to do is go into your pantry. Peanut butter seems to be some of the most effective baits that you can get and you do not have to look in a specialized store in order to get it.
  • Sunflowers seeds - This may be not a common knowledge to everyone, but squirrels have a great affinity for sunflower seeds.
  • Bird Feeders - Squirrels like to eat seeds so your bird seeds are tasty treats for them.
  • Fresh and clean water - Like any other animal squirrels also get attracted to a good and clean source of water to quench their thirst.
  • Bushes, hedges, shrubs and thick vegetations - Squirrels are by nature nervous creatures and will most likely stay if your yard have tall ornamental grass, bushes and lush vegetations that can make them feel comfortable and secure.

    California Wildlife Information:

    California State bird: California quail
    State mammal: California grizzly bear and the grey whale
    State reptile: Desert tortoise
    State fish: Golden trout and Garibaldi
    State insect: California dogface butterfly

    California is home to the infamous redwood tree, a plant so large it could easily accommodate a road through the center of it. These trees make up one of the most spectacular national forests in the United States and provide shelter to thousands of different animal species. Like smaller forests around the country, the redwoods house raccoons, squirrels, porcupines, and rabbits. Prey and predator animals abound, and California has its fair share of grizzly bear sightings.

    All of these animals can become potential pests for homeowners living on the fringes of such a massive nature preserve. Rural residents are accustomed to securing garbage cans and basements to prevent a curious skunk or gopher from moving in. But forest animals aren't the only creatures known to cause trouble in this coastal state. California has to do daily battle with marine and semiaquatic life.

    While shy and often unapproachable, sea lions and seals are abundant on the beaches. These animals draw to them gulls by the hundreds, and the resulting piles of droppings are not what most tourists head to the beach to see. Restaurants also have issues with the bold and pesky seagulls. Special netting and bird spikes are the only practical way to keep diners free of bird poop without chasing away patrons.

    California isn't just about being warm. While this state has steady, mild temperatures for most of the months of the year, there are high elevations which see frigid temperatures and persisting snow. Such a variable climate makes the state a perfect location for a diverse population of animals. Not only can creatures like coyotes and bears survive in the colder regions, salamanders and frogs abound in the areas where sun and warm are the norm.

    As a tourist state, California has a large population, and such a significant amount of people means eventually having human-wildlife conflicts. The most common critters that have to be removed from California homes are raccoons, bats, pigeons, skunks, and a variety of birds including woodpeckers, swallows, and seagulls. Honeybees are also an issue for homeowners in California. If you think it's difficult to button up a home
