If you have a problem with wildlife in your Pleasanton 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 California and Pleasanton, and I recommend the following:

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Mighty Men WildLife Trapping & Rodents is a full-service Pleasanton wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Pleasanton pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Mighty Men WildLife Trapping & Rodents 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.
Pleasanton 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 Pleasanton raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Mighty Men WildLife Trapping & Rodents. 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 Pleasanton 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 Pleasanton 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 Pleasanton 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 Pleasanton pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Pleasanton 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 Pleasanton trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Pleasanton 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. Mighty Men WildLife Trapping & Rodents does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Mighty Men WildLife Trapping & Rodents. 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. Mighty Men WildLife Trapping & Rodents also provides dead animal removal in Pleasanton. 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 Pleasanton 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 Pleasanton. And remember, we are a private business, not Alameda County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 925-931-5100. Alameda County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:

Pleasanton Wildlife Tip #1:
Why Do Skunks Dig?
Skunks are popular for their notorious habits, and these nocturnal creatures also cause huge damage to human habitat. These nonsense creatures are skilled diggers, and they take very less time to burrow tunnels in the residential areas. If you are sharing your property with skunks; they may often cause damage to our porch and shed area. You may often find lots of garbage outside the foundation openings; it comes out when skunk create some hole inside. Many times, you may find skunks feeding on the corn in your premises. They may create deep holes in the golf courses, lawns, gardens, etc. where they often keep on looking for some grubs and insects inside the soil.
Although there are so many animals that are capable enough to dig holes deeper into the ground, skunks are the most terrible ones. Experts reveal that skunk holes usually have a dimension of 7 to 10 cm or 3 to 4 inches. You will observe them having cone-like shape with some patches on them. Skunks often prefer to eat eggs, and they also target poultry in human premises. In most cases, homeowners are not able to identify skunk problem in their habitat. These calm and silent pests can live on your property so long without getting noticed. It happens because they stay in their den in the day hours and come out only in the night to search for food. The only way you can recognize their presence is by observing the smell coming from their body. The second identification is the holes created by them in the garden and yard. They often target vegetation, flower beds and soil containing worms for their food.
There are so many reasons that force skunks to dig the ground. The most common is the cold in the winter season; they try to build cozy dens underground to stay safe in the winter season. They also dig the ground to find some food in the form of worms and other insects that live in soil. Sometimes; the holes may also be created in the spring and fall season, and in this case, they try to take rest in the ground to get more calories so that their body can become able to resist the winter cold. In case if the animal is fat enough, it has more chances to survive even in peak cold. The food hunting job is completed by all animals and skunks also follow the same habits. When they need food from, underground sources, they simply start digging it down.
Skunks cause destruction to property in the night hours, and the size of holes created by these animals are usually of the size of their nose. They create these holes by using their sharp and long claws. The terrible fact is that skunks can create so many holes in a small area and in this way, they can destroy the complete landscape. If you are in trouble due to these creatures; prefer to take help from professional skunk removal company.

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
