Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Thousand Oaks, CA

Thousand Oaks Wildlife Animal Control

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

All Star Animal Trapping
Cell Phone: 805-624-5646

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Ventura County Animal Services: (818) 991-0071



All Star Animal Trapping 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 All Star Animal Trapping 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 805-624-5646 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 Ventura 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


All Star Animal Trapping is a full-service Thousand Oaks wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Thousand Oaks pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. All Star Animal Trapping 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.

  Thousand Oaks 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 Thousand Oaks raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at All Star Animal Trapping. 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 Thousand Oaks 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 Thousand Oaks 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 Thousand Oaks 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 Thousand Oaks pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Thousand Oaks 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 Thousand Oaks trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Thousand Oaks 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. All Star Animal Trapping does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by All Star Animal Trapping. 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. All Star Animal Trapping also provides dead animal removal in Thousand Oaks. 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 Thousand Oaks 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 Thousand Oaks. And remember, we are a private business, not Ventura County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (818) 991-0071. Ventura County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Thousand Oaks Wildlife Tip #1:
How to keep groundhogs out of the garden

Here are some options that will help you keep groundhogs out of the garden.

Eggs

It is believed that eggs help in keeping groundhogs away. What you have to do is first locate their burrows. After you have found them, then you can go ahead and use this method. It's simple: just crack open the eggs by the entrances of the burrow and then cover it up with dirt. Just to be sure that you are on the right track, make sure that you have done this at more than a single opening since groundhogs have multiple entrances. Therefore, if you just apply the eggs at one entrance, you can be sure that they will find another way in and out. This should be done frequently, and in two weeks' time you will discover that the groundhogs are long gone.

Castor oil

This is considered a repellent as groundhogs are not very fond of the smell. And just like eggs, the same procedure should be followed. Identify the entry holes, pour about one spoonful of castor oil there and then cover up with dirt. Another option is to mix a half cup of castor oil with two cups of water to have just enough amount of the mixture to cover all those holes. Other than just pouring it onto the entrances, you can also spray this mixture all over your garden, onto crops and grass and on anything that the groundhogs are destroying. Also, you can target their most active areas. Castor oil is not poisonous, so doing this is very safe. Repeat this for the coming two to three weeks and the groundhogs will go away.

Pepper

Do you have a cayenne pepper or chili pepper or red pepper? If the answer is yes, then you have yourself a groundhog repellent. And in the same way, place a little bit by the entrance of the burrows and cover it up with dirt. To spray all over your garden, mix about four spoons of pepper with two cups of warm water in a spray bottle and start spraying around. Repeat 2-3 weeks afterwards, and just to be sure that it is working, look out for new burrows and keep reapplying until they get tired and go away.

Fencing

Creating a physical barrier is another way of keeping these animals out of your garden. The fences should be made using mesh that is not larger than an inch wide to prevent any chance of a groundhog squeezing through. The depth of the trench should be about a foot deep with posts being about eight to ten feet apart all around the perimeter wall of your garden. The extra depth during the wire mesh installation is meant to prevent the groundhog from digging and getting to your garden through going underneath the fence.

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
