If you have a problem with wildlife in your Huntington Beach 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 Huntington Beach, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Orange County Animal Services: 714-935-6848

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife Pest Control Anaheim is a full-service Huntington Beach wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Huntington Beach pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Pest Control Anaheim 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.
Huntington Beach 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 Huntington Beach raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Pest Control Anaheim. 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 Huntington Beach 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 Huntington Beach 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 Huntington Beach 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 Huntington Beach pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Huntington Beach 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 Huntington Beach trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Huntington Beach 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. Wildlife Pest Control Anaheim does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Pest Control Anaheim. 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. Wildlife Pest Control Anaheim also provides dead animal removal in Huntington Beach. 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 Huntington Beach 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 Huntington Beach. And remember, we are a private business, not Orange County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 714-935-6848. Orange 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.
Huntington Beach Wildlife Tip #1:
What can you buy to drive away skunk or other wild animal under the house? - If you have a rather problematic skunk or other wild animal that is wreaking havoc under your house, it would make sense to weigh up all of the options you have available to you to ensure that you deal with the creature in the best way possible. A lot of people immediately turn to trapping and releasing options before looking at the whole picture, which could essentially be overtaken by looking at driving away or repelling options instead. The only problem with looking at deterrents and repellants is that very few of them actually work and something that may have worked for an skunk or other wild animal that your friend may have had in their garden, will not always work in the same way for you. It is easy to get carried away by the fabulous promises made by the people that create these products, and the testimonials for the all of the bizarre suggestions on the internet, but in reality you will need to take them with a grain of salt and keep your mind open. Things like moth balls have been said to work for other people, but again, this is not a guaranteed method for all. Also, you will need to bear in mind the cost - admittedly a box of moth balls is hardly going to break the bank, but when you consider that you might need a lot of moth balls by replacing them every now and again, and placing them in all of the areas that you are having difficulties, you may find that the cheaper option would have just been to call the professionals in the first place!
Huntington Beach Wildlife Tip #2:
Palm rat - The true palm rat is native to India and is not a natural resident of North America. Roof rats are sometimes called palm rats, though they are not really the same subspecies. The common roof rat is a nuisance animal of the most devious caliber. Rats are very persistent, resilient, stubborn creatures. They will often learn the habits of the humans around them and adapt to those activities. Roof rats are exceptional climbers, frequently scaling telephone poles and trees to access rooftops. If any opening in the building's exterior exists, the roof rat will find it. This is why home maintenance is so vital to proper pest control. If that rats can't get inside then they can never become an issue. Roofs are commonly overlooked when it comes to a home inspection, and vents or eaves are often damaged by weather. These locations do not have to be open much wider than an inch in order for a rat to slip through. Once these animals are inside of your home they will go right to work chewing on wires and support materials. One rat will almost always mean more rats, and without quick action, your home will become infested in a short amount of time.

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
