Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Solana Beach, CA

Solana Beach Wildlife Animal Control

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

The Wildlife Specialist
Cell Phone: 858-257-3420

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call San Diego County Animal Services: (619) 767-2675



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 858-257-3420 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 San Diego 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 Solana Beach wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Solana Beach 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.

  Solana 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 Solana Beach 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 Solana 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 Solana 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 Solana 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 Solana Beach pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Solana 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 Solana Beach trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Solana 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. 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 Solana 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 Solana 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 Solana Beach. And remember, we are a private business, not San Diego County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (619) 767-2675. San Diego County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Solana Beach Wildlife Tip #1:
How To Find And Remove A Dead Squirrel In A House

Earlier, most of the rodents and animals were found in the forest areas, but from past few years, these creatures are finding their way to human habitats. In different seasons, they keep on searching for food in the yard and garden area, but when their mating season starts, they search for a safe and comfortable place. One of their most common targets is your attic as it helps them to stay safe from changing weather conditions and predators as well.

When squirrels start living in your premises, they start building nests by tearing down your attic insulation. They give birth to babies and start raising them in this cozy and comfortable environment. But the sad part is that they may also die in your premises. It can happen due to many reasons, they may die of natural causes, due to traps placed by homeowners, due to illness or pain during pregnancy. No matter why they die, their dead body will soon start releasing terrible smell in your house. Homeowners find it difficult to tolerate, but it is more difficult to get rid of this smell because these creatures try to hide at dark corners where humans cannot reach so easily. Even when they are about to die, they start running to smaller spaces or tiny gaps where they can hide from humans. It can be the gap between your walls, the area behind your furniture, cabinets, and appliances.

Finding and removing a dead squirrel is important because it may attract parasites and can spread diseases as well. The carrion-feeders and bugs also keep on visiting the area where they find dead bodies or carcass of animals and rodents. Experts advise taking immediate steps to get rid of dead squirrel body from your premises.

In order to remove dead squirrels from the attic, first of all, you must have the right set of tools that are required for the removal process. As squirrels carry lots of disease viruses, they can become worst when the body starts decomposing. In such situation, if you touch the body with bare hands; there are chances of suffering from harmful diseases. It is important to wear protective gloves along with goggles and breathing mask. Make sure you wear disposable gloves for the complete protection in future as well. When you take out squirrel body from your attic, next task is to use proper disinfectants like bleach along with rags, paper towels, bug spray and odor remover. You will these all these items to clean the area after removal of the dead animal. Put all the waste material in the plastic bags, clean the area carefully and throw away all unwanted items with tightly packed plastic bags. Now seal all the entry holes to your attic so that new group of squirrels does not find access to the attic. In case if you are not able to execute all these tasks for dead animal removal, prefer to take help from reliable squirrel exterminators in your city.

Solana 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
