If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Westminster 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 Westminster, and I recommend the following:
A Team Services, Inc.
Cell Phone: 714-408-9588
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Orange County Animal Services: (714) 935-6848
A Team Services, Inc. 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 A Team Services, Inc. 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 714-408-9588
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
A Team Services, Inc. is a full-service Westminster wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Westminster pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. A Team Services, Inc. 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.
Westminster 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 Westminster raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at A Team Services, Inc.. 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 Westminster 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 Westminster 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 Westminster 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 Westminster pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Westminster 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 Westminster trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Westminster 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. A Team Services, Inc. does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by A Team Services, Inc.. 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
. A Team Services, Inc.
also provides dead animal removal in Westminster. 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 Westminster 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 Westminster. 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.

Westminster Wildlife Tip #1:Venomous snakes of Florida
Are you familiar with venomous snakes of Florida? There are actually 4 venomous snakes that live in Florida area; the Florida cottonmouth, the Eastern Coral snake, the Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake and dusky pygmy rattlesnake. When you already have learned how to identify them, you no longer will have to worry about the fifty more species.
The Florida Cottonmouth
Known as the water moccasin, the Florida Cottonmouth are venomous by nature. Their body color ranges from a dull black to pattern. You will easily identify them by their black eye line. This usually starts from the one side of their eye and then back down to the one side of their head. In any pattern they have, they have this so-called eye line.
The Eastern Coral Snake
The yellow and red color of the snake will be a signal for you to stop. You need to understand that their venom is very toxic or neurotoxic. This also mainly affects their nervous system which cause paralysis in their diaphragm.
Dusky Pygmy Rattlesnake
This measures an average of fifteen to twenty-two inches long. With their rattle, it sounds as if an insect is buzzing. This is also basically gray with its colored blotches that run down their back. With a very painful bite, it is good thing that it is not fatal. This is also known to have caused more snake bites to people living in Florida. Children and adults need to be educated about this venomous snake. This may be small in its size that it may be believed as something harmless.
Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake
This is considered as one of the biggest venomous snake all over the United States. This can strike half of the body length. This also has its best defense which is by way of going near one. The bite is mostly attributed to someone getting close to it.
In the event that you get bitten by any of these venomous snakes, you need to seek medical attention at the nearby medical facility. This will be an effective treatment that can help manage the venomous snakebite.
Now, you already have learned more about the venomous snakes of Florida and all other information about them. Avoid them as much as possible and do the necessary treatment if ever you get bitten by any of them. Call the help of a doctor to attend to your medical needs and to get the venom out of your body!
Westminster 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
