Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Downey, CA

Downey Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Downey 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 Downey, and I recommend the following:

A Team Services, Inc.
Cell Phone: 562-372-4147

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Los Angeles County Animal Services: (562) 940-6898



A Team Services, Inc. specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. California also has a documented problem with bats in buildings, and A Team Services, Inc. is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the property. Call 562-372-4147 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
    - Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
    - Fully California and Los Angeles 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


A Team Services, Inc. is a full-service Downey wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Downey pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. A Team Services, Inc. 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.

  Downey 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 Downey raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at A Team Services, Inc.. 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 Downey 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 Downey 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 Downey 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 Downey pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Downey 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 Downey trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Downey 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. A Team Services, Inc. does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by A Team Services, Inc.. 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. A Team Services, Inc. also provides dead animal removal in Downey. 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 Downey 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 Downey. And remember, we are a private business, not Los Angeles County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (562) 940-6898. Los Angeles County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Downey Wildlife Tip #1:
Biology of Norway Rat

If you want to control the population of rodents, it will be a wiser idea to learn and identify the type of rodent that you are dealing with. This is about having the best offense and preparing the best defensive strategy.

Primarily Nocturnal

A Norway rat is actually nocturnal. It only means to say that it can sleep throughout the day. It can also become active after dusk. In the event that you see it during the day, this only means to say that there is now a large population in the area.

Litters of Almost Six to Twelve Young

The Norway rat litters of almost six to twelve young right after the gestation period. This period will last for about twenty-one to twenty-three days. They may decide to mate again after a day and after a litter has been born. The female usually gives birth to four to six litters every year. The newborn ones will reach their reproductive maturity. They will enter a life cycle again in two to three months. These little rats will multiple fast. That is why it is necessary to control them. This is right after you have been aware of the issue.

Known by Its Many Handles and Its Other Characteristics

It is also known by its many different handles. As mentioned, it is a nocturnal type of rat and it is really an excellent digger. It climbs poorly but it is capable of producing sonic or ultrasonic visualizations. Its squeaks can be heard as a sign of distress.

Can Breed the Entire Year

This specific kind of rat can breed the entire year round. This is also provided that there is an ample shelter, water and food available. With the ability in breeding, the population of this rat extends to even a large family. A group of Norway rats usually stay underground and man-made places like cellars and sewers.

When there is shortage in food supply, the bottom of the Norway rat's social order die fast. When there is an extermination of Norway rats, the rest will increase their production. This way, they will restore their population level. This is when aggressive eradication and prevention is necessary.

Eliminate the Population of Norway Rats

One of the best things to keep in mind is to eliminate the population of Norway Rats. This will help in order for your home to be free from these rats.

Now, you already have learned more about the biology of Norway rat!

Downey Wildlife Tip #2:


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

You can always call A Team Services, Inc., any time of day, at 562-372-4147, for a price quote for Downey wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Downey, CA.
