If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Newport 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 Newport Beach, and I recommend the following:
A Team Services, Inc.
Cell Phone: 714-408-9588
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Orange County Animal Services: (949) 644-3656
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 714-408-9588
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 Orange 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 Newport Beach wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Newport Beach 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.
Newport 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 Newport Beach 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 Newport 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 Newport 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 Newport 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 Newport Beach pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Newport 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 Newport Beach trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Newport 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. 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 Newport 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 Newport 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 Newport 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 (949) 644-3656.
Orange County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Newport Beach Wildlife Tip #1:Do squirrels make good pets?
Squirrels have adapted to coexist with humans and they are truly fun to watch, whether you watch them burying their edible treasures or watch them playing chase. These small rodents are also cute when they hop around one's backyard, climb wooden fences, and climb tall trees with ease.
These animals belong to the biological family of rodents. They have existed for more than 50 million years and they have adapted to live together with humans. Squirrels usually feed on scraps, nuts, seeds, and fruits. However, the question is, do squirrels make good pets?
The Early Months of a Squirrel's Life
Within the first six months of their life, squirrels bond with humans, become dependent on them for food, and they show affection. As these cute animals age, their claws and teeth become much sharper and longer which in turn can cause some unintentional harm on pets, humans, and furniture. There are several reports which support this fact. There was even a case when a squirrel bit a little girl's finger to the bone unintentionally.
Mating Season Problems
Squirrels can also exhibit a type of aggressive and harmful behavior when their mating season begins. These small animals may not know their own strength and aggressiveness during their mating season or mean harm.
However, most squirrels aren't equipped to be safe animals for domestication from the wildlife.
Reintroduction to the Wild
When a pet squirrel's mating season begins, most people think at that point that it's time for the pet squirrel to be reintroduced to the wildlife.
However, bringing a domesticated squirrel to the wild would be a death sentence for the animal. A domesticated squirrel can't simply survive without certain skills in the wild, such as avoiding predators, finding food, and marking its territory. The good news is that domesticated squirrels can learn how to live in the wild.
Making an Animal Wild Again
If you found an orphaned baby squirrel and raise it to 6 months of age and it's time to set the animal free, you should know that you must change your squirrel from a pet to a wild animal.
A pet squirrel without any instincts can't survive in the wild so you should rehab your pet squirrel to become wild again. You can do this by yourself or you can call licensed rehabbers to do this for you.
Several states prohibit owning animals such as squirrels as pets so before adopting one, you should research is it illegal in your state to pet a squirrel.
Newport Beach 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
