Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Orange County, CA

Orange County Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Orange County 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 Orange County, and I recommend the following:

The Wildlife Specialist
Cell Phone: 949-432-4195

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Orange County Animal Services: (714) 935-6848



The Wildlife Specialist 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 The Wildlife Specialist 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 949-432-4195 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


The Wildlife Specialist is a full-service Orange County wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Orange County pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. The Wildlife Specialist 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.

  Orange County 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 Orange County raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at The Wildlife Specialist. 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 Orange County 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 Orange County 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 Orange County 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 Orange County pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Orange County 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 Orange County trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Orange County 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. The Wildlife Specialist does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by The Wildlife Specialist. 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. The Wildlife Specialist also provides dead animal removal in Orange County. 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 Orange County 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 Orange County. 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.

Orange County Wildlife Tip #1:
Understanding Snake Venom and How It Works

There are so many ways snake venom can affect human body. But the severity of the case will be depending on three factors which include: The snake, the quantity of venom released and the type of venom. There is variation in type of venom produce by different snake species and in most case venom component normally differ even from snake of same specie base on the geographical location. That made it important to find out the kind of snake in order to know the right anti-venom to use for the treatment. This article will bring to your understanding information about snake venom and how it works in the body.
The Hemotoxic Venom and What You Need To Know

The hemotoxic venom usually targets the cardiovascular system. For that reason, when a person is bitten by a snake with hemotoxic venom the blood pressure of the person will be lowered so as to give room for blood clothing. This will make it difficult for the blood in the body to flow to the heart as usual thereby causing heart attack and other forms of troubles. Apart from the heart this type of venom can equally attack the muscle so as to ensure the victim dies.
The Cytotoxic Venom of Snake

The Cytotoxic venom is always in snake spite which normally causes digestion of the prey even while still in the mouth. The main target of cytotoxic venom is the tissue of the body to ensure the tissues are dead. Those bitten with snake with this venom will require amputation of their body part even after the venom is treated. The cytotoxic venom always spread throughout the body to enhance permeability of muscle so as to make it easy for the venom to penetrate and destroy things in the body.
The Neurotoxic Venom of Snake

The case of neurotoxic venom is to damage and disrupt the function the brain and nervous system. If a snake with this kind of venom bite a person it can result to paralysis and even inability to control the muscle. Also, this kind of venom can attack and inhibit the ATP supply in the body which is responsible for transfer of energy between the cells of the body.
How Venom Works Generally

The truth is that snake bite can be dangerous due the presence of venom of different types as explained on this article. The organs are the most targeted part of the body when there is venom injected into the body. So, the heart, muscles, nervous system and other part of human organs are mostly in trouble when there is snake venom in the body.

Orange County 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
