If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Lancaster 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 Lancaster, and I recommend the following:
Palmdale Animal Trapping
Cell Phone: 661-578-5417
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Los Angeles County Animal Services: (661) 940-4191
Palmdale Animal Trapping 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 Palmdale Animal Trapping 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 661-578-5417
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
Palmdale Animal Trapping is a full-service Lancaster wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Lancaster pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Palmdale Animal Trapping 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.
Lancaster 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 Lancaster raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Palmdale Animal Trapping. 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 Lancaster 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 Lancaster 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 Lancaster 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 Lancaster pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Lancaster 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 Lancaster trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Lancaster 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. Palmdale Animal Trapping does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Palmdale Animal Trapping. 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
. Palmdale Animal Trapping
also provides dead animal removal in Lancaster. 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 Lancaster 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 Lancaster. 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 (661) 940-4191.
Los Angeles County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Lancaster Wildlife Tip #1:What is pigeon shock track?
Losing the battle against pigeons? You are not the only one. In an attempt to get rid of these pesky birds, many companies promise to have found the solution to your problem. The problem being, many of them are very expensive and even more of them simply don't work. Pigeons are creatures that easily adapt to their surroundings, they do not hear high frequency sounds and they can get into the smallest of holes. So, what are your options? The only solution is to find a product that works for you. One of these is the pigeon shock track.
What is a pigeon shock track?
A pigeon shock track is a flexible, wire that can be used almost anywhere that you find pigeons perching or nesting. When the birds land on the wire it emits a low voltage current that warns the bird that it is an unsavoury place to land.
Does it hurt the bird?
The voltage that is released is too low to hurt the bird, or even people and other animals that accidentally come into contact with the wire. It simply serves as negative reinforcement, in the same way that a high frequency whistle is used to keep dogs from barking.
The question is always, "Can I install it myself?" If you can, it saves on installation cost and also means that it should be relatively easy to fix if it stops working. The answer is, maybe. Some manufacturers boast that their product is easy to install, as long as you use the manual. Others claim that the installation is more difficult and suggest that you get a professional to install it. I guess it all depends on how handy you are.
Is it legal?
Using the shock track is legal in America, even though there has been some blow back from animal rights organisations, it does not actually hurt the birds so it is allowed. In some other countries, like the UK, it is not legal yet as it is believed to be harmful to the animals. It is possible to source the product from countries where it is legal, but it is important to make sure that it is not against the law in your country.
My track doesn't work
If you have taken the chance and installed the track yourself, you will know that all you need is some glue and a power source that is not too high in voltage. If you find that your track is not working there are some common causes:
1. Firstly, there might not be enough power reaching the track, ensure that your power supply is sufficient.
2. There may also be a faulty connection.
3. Make sure that the track in free of debris, if there is debris on the track the bird will be able to land on that and not make contact with the wire.
Lancaster 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
