If you have a problem with wildlife in your Hesperia 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 Hesperia, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call San Bernardino County Animal Services: 1-800-472-5609
Professional Wildlife Removal Services 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 Professional Wildlife Removal Services 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 760-904-3773 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Professional Wildlife Removal Services is a full-service Hesperia wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Hesperia 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.
Hesperia 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 Hesperia 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 Hesperia 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 Hesperia 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 Hesperia 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 Hesperia pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Hesperia 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 Hesperia trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Hesperia 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 Hesperia. 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 Hesperia 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 Hesperia. 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.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Hesperia Wildlife Tip #1:
Common Snakes of Texas
If you want an adventure, Texas has everything that you may want to see. You might think a lot of cowboys and deserts when you go to Texas. Deserts have a lot of diversified animals and that include snakes. The slithery inhabitants are not uncommon. The huge number of prey living in a Texas desert is the perfect place for a lot of snake species. The climate is also subtropical. That means that the summers are hot and humid, while the winters are mild.
When you say snake, what might come to your mind is a creature that is slithering and legless. You might be right but many creatures are confused with snakes. An example is a legless lizard. However, snakes do not have eyelids, and they don't have ears. Their scales are keeled, or granular. Snakes can attack if they feel threatened. However, they will also go in the opposite direction when you leave them alone.
Here are some of the common snakes found in Texas
1. Texas Brown Snake - is considered non-venomous. The pupils are round and it has pale brown bands on its spine area. The color on the neck might be dark brown to dark grey. The length is about 9 to 12 inches. The scales are keeled.
2. Graham's Crayfish Snake is non-venomous. Like the brown snake, the pupils are round and large. The head is a triangular shape and the colors can range from olive to dark tan. The length is about 28 inches in adults.
3. Eastern Garter Snake is non-venomous, has keeled scales, and has round pupils. The snake got its name due to its garter-like form. They like shrubby or grassy habitats. Some of them like moisture including drainage ditches, streams, bogs, swamps, and quarries. The average adult size is about 26 inches. Some of them have light blue stripes on their mid-dorsal areas.
4. Rough Green Snake has a bright color but is non-venomous. The color usually is a mixture of yellow, white, and green. The head is elongated. The eyes are round, and they usually swallow their prey whole. This snake is docile, seldom bites, and a very good swimmer.
5. Western Coachwhip is non-venomous. The pupils are round, the color can range from brown to light tan, and the scales are smooth. The adults are long, often around 72 inches. Their name comes from their appearance like that of a braided whip. Although the venom is absent on this snake, it will lift its head and repeatedly strike an intruder. If left alone, it will simply flee.
6. Texas Rat Snake is sometimes called black rat snake and is non-venomous. It can climb hills excellently since it prefers elevated habitats. The adults have dark brown blotches and the color darkens faster as they grow old. They can be aggressive when provoked. The snake can kill predators because of its massive build, and great strength. Hawks and great horned owls are known to be predators of the rat snake but the snake can fend it off easily.
