If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Peoria home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Arizona 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 Peoria, and I recommend the following:
Pest Animal Removal Phoenix
Cell Phone: 602-313-8971
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Maricopa County Animal Services: 602-506-7387
Pest Animal Removal Phoenix specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Arizona also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Pest Animal Removal Phoenix 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 602-313-8971

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:

- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Pest Animal Removal Phoenix is a full-service Peoria wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Peoria pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Pest Animal Removal Phoenix 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.
Peoria wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Arizona 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 Arizona law. We offer Peoria raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Pest Animal Removal Phoenix. 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 Peoria 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 Peoria 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 Peoria rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Arizona 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 Peoria pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Peoria 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 Peoria trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Peoria 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. Pest Animal Removal Phoenix does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Pest Animal Removal Phoenix. 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
. Pest Animal Removal Phoenix
also provides dead animal removal in Peoria. 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 Peoria snake removal - most of the snakes in Arizona are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Peoria. And remember, we are a private business, not Maricopa County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 602-506-7387.
Maricopa County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Peoria Wildlife Tip #1:DO RACCOONS COME OUT IN THE RAIN?
The weather is a powerful factor in determining wildlife behavior and can affect even small habits like eating hours, mating rituals, marking territory, hunting methods and the availability of prey.
This is true for woodland creatures such and mice, rabbits, raccoons and birds. All of these will generally seek the safety and shelter of their own underground dens, and birds will fly to their nests in the trees to shield their young from the storms.
Although raccoons generally like the water and brave it more than other animals, going so far as to fish and swim for hours at a time, they also take cover from the rain and hide away in their dens which can be hollow trees, old rabbit dens, or deep holes in the ground. A light drizzle will not immediately deter raccoons, who see no problem at all in continuing to forage and hunt while withstanding a few drops of water, but heavy rainfall, a fall in temperature and thunder will definitely drive them into their dens where they can cozy up with their family members and need not feel cold or wet.
Raccoon behavior is heavily affected by temperature and pressure. When the temperature rises, raccoons are more active and will hunt and mate with ease. When the temperature falls, they become much slower at their normal activities and tend to seek the comfort of their dens.
Since they aren't, strictly speaking, hibernators, they do still remain relatively active during cold months of snow or heavy rain fall, but they hunt less and rely more on the food sources they have managed to stash up in their dens for exactly these kinds of days. This also means that will be slower to react, sleep more and try to keep activity to a minimum so that they can save as much energy as they can.
During extended periods of heavy rain fall, raccoons will venture occasionally out of their dens for short hunting or foraging trips. They will brave the wet weather just long enough to ensure that they have enough food for a time and then quickly return to their dry, warm homes. Despite all this, heavy rain fall may also mean flooding, and this for raccoons is an added bonus because it enables them to fish and hunt for small animals like frogs and small animals that get flushed out. Since they are relatively good swimmers, this gives them an advantage over other animals.
Although raccoons are sturdy and resilient, constant rain fall may push them to look for new places to build their nests and will move out given the chance, so that breeding and raising their young can be done in warmer places where food is more abundant.
Peoria Wildlife Tip #2:
Arizona Wildlife Information:
Arizona State bird: Cactus wren
State mammal: Ringtail cat
State reptile: Arizona ridge-nosed rattlesnake
State amphibian: Arizona tree frog
State fish: Arizona trout
State insect: Two-tailed swallowtail
Arizona is most known for its beautiful desert regions filled with canyons and rock formations accented by cacti of varying height. What many people don't realize is that Arizona has its fair share of forests-over 20 percent of the state is woodland. These thick forests of pine and spruce trees are mostly in what is known as the Colorado Plateau. The drier regions are home to just as much wildlife, and there is no region in Arizona where animals are completely missing from the environment. For the most part, the summers in the state are hot and the winters are mild, but some of the regions with mountains and canyons can experience colder weather and even snow. There are ski resorts in northern Arizona.
State landmarks like the Grand Canyon make fantastic havens for wildlife. The water in the canyon gives life to all kinds of species including bald eagles, mountain lions, wolves, coyotes, rattlesnakes, and golden eagles. It also shelters a number of endangered species. The desert tortoise, big horned sheep, California brown pelican, spotted bat, and Southwest river otter are all on the protected list in this state.
Because of the diverse terrain, Arizona has all four of the major predators in the United States: black bears, coyotes, wolves, and mountain lions. Bobcats are also common, but they are known as "wildcats" by the residents of the state.
While Arizona still has raccoons, it also has a very raccoon-like creature called the ringtail cat. This animal is not part of the cat family, and it looks more like a cross between a raccoon and a fox. These solitary creatures live in cliff caves within the arid and semi-arid regions of the state. They have a diet of scorpions, insects, eggs, and small mammals.
Grazing creatures are also common, especially within the canyons where vegetation thrives. Arizona has mule deer, white-tailed deer, elk, and big horn sheep.
Pest animals are numerous in this state, just as in any other. The forested regions provide a good home for squirrels, bats, porcupines, skunks, raccoons, and mice. Another potential pest animal in Arizona is the javelina, a small wild pig. As with any location, homeowners have to worry about rats, which can survive in most regions of the world.
You can always call Pest Animal Removal Phoenix, any time of day, at 602-313-8971, for a price quote for Peoria wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Peoria, AZ.
