If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Lakeside 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 Lakeside, and I recommend the following:
AAAC Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 858-799-0409
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call San Diego County Animal Services: (858) 694-3900
AAAC Wildlife Removal 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 AAAC Wildlife Removal 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 858-799-0409
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 San Diego 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
AAAC Wildlife Removal is a full-service Lakeside wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Lakeside pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. AAAC Wildlife Removal 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.
Lakeside 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 Lakeside raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at AAAC Wildlife Removal. 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 Lakeside 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 Lakeside 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 Lakeside 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 Lakeside pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Lakeside 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 Lakeside trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Lakeside 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. AAAC Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by AAAC Wildlife Removal. 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
. AAAC Wildlife Removal
also provides dead animal removal in Lakeside. 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 Lakeside 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 Lakeside. And remember, we are a private business, not San Diego County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (858) 694-3900.
San Diego County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Lakeside Wildlife Tip #1:What If A Bat Got Inside My House, Bedroom, Kitchen, etc.
Bats are crazy nocturnal animals; you may observe them getting into the attic through tiny holes. But the terrible fact is that they may sometime also get inside the house, flying here and there in the kitchen and bedrooms. If you have a bat inside, you may get panic instantly because sometimes they get inside while chasing an insect without knowing that its human habitat and will keep on moving freely for some time. In case if they are already living in your attic, there are chances that they will pass into your house through small cracks in the ceiling. Those who live in bat prone areas might be interested to know what to do if bats enter the house. Here are few tips from experts to keep your family safe and get the bat out of your house:
Confine the bat within one room:
The moment when you observe bat flying in your home, don't get panic because this creature will not attack you; rather it is also in fear and wants to find a path to get out of the human habitat. In this situation, first, you need to confine bat into one room by closing all the doors and windows. Then open window to find its way to the outer world. But in case if it does not make a move out of the room, let her sit on the land and then make efforts to remove her.
Use a towel to wrap the bat:
When the bat refuses to go out of the confined room, and it sits on the ground in the room; take a towel and slowly move closer. Spread the towel over the bat and wrap it. Now take is out of the house where you can release it safely. Make sure you don't put your hand inside her mouth as her teeth are strong enough to bite you hard.
Use plastic container:
In case if you are scared to wrap bat in a towel and carry it out of the house, try using a plastic container. Cover the bat with a container and then turn the paper slightly against a wall so that bat can get inside the container. Now you can easily carry the container out of the home and allow it to fly away. Make sure that you never create a threat to the bat during removal process; otherwise, it may become aggressive and can also bite you.
Never try to chase the bat:
Some people make mistakes to chase the bat with net and torch, but it is not an accurate method to take this mammal out of your house. You may end up hurting her, or the bat may get too aggressive to bite you. Prefer to use safe procedures to take the bat out of your house. In case if you are not able to execute the removal process, prefer to call experts from bat removal company to get rid of these creatures safely.
Lakeside 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
