HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
Being close to nature has its advantages, but it can also cause problems. Most of the time, the farther you are from a big city, the more likely it is that you will run into wildlife. Even though wildlife encounters are unavoidable, they should still be dealt with to keep your home and family safe.
Different kinds of wildlife cause different problems, but they can all get mean and territorial and spread disease and parasites, so it’s best to let professionals take care of them.
Carlsbad Pest Control can catch and release larger animals like skunks, raccoons, and opossums. They can also help keep pigeons and bats from coming into your home. Call us today to set up an inspection of your property so that our team can look for trouble spots and come up with a good way to deal with your wildlife problem.
WILDLIFE WE CAN HELP YOU WITH
Bats are mammals with wings that fly at night and help get rid of pests. So, they will live in your attic, where they can spread rabies and bring fleas.
When left alone to nest, birds make a lot of noise and a big mess. They have fleas and mites on them, and their poop can make it hard to breathe.
Opossums are fierce scavengers that can spread diseases like rabies. They will stay as long as there is a steady supply of food and water.
Pigeons are called “flying rats” because they carry diseases and cause damage. They carry fleas, mites, and other parasites that can make people sick.
Raccoons are smart nocturnal scavengers. They are one of the few animal species with a thumb that can be turned in either direction. This gives them a lot of dexterity.
Skunks are well known for their smell-shooting defense. This is a very effective way to keep dogs and other animals from attacking.
HUMANE TRAPPING & REMOVAL
Carlsbad Pest Control uses humane and environmentally friendly ways to catch pests. We offer to live-capture the animals and get rid of the ones that are living there, so they are no longer a problem. We don’t use traps that kill wildlife because a dead animal will attract other pests that eat it, like flies, ants, beetles, rodents, etc.
WILDLIFE TO LOOK OUT FOR
If you live in southern California and own your own home, you will probably have to deal with wildlife at some point, if you haven’t already. They are troublesome animals that don’t mean to be a problem, but they always bring diseases, parasites, and messes with them, and they could also cause damage. Most of the time, homeowners have to deal with the following animals:
Wildlife can cause problems because of parasites. Fleas, mites, and bed bugs can all be spread by local wildlife. Mice, bugs, and birds all carry parasites, which they then leave behind in their nests. If they make a home in your house, these parasites will spread out and eventually find people to eat.
DISEASE: Most animals that get into people’s homes can spread diseases like rabies, salmonella, and other bacteria and pathogens that are bad for people. Wildlife can carry diseases like hantavirus and histoplasmosis, and a lot of the waste they leave behind can also make you sick.
DAMAGE: Raccoons and opossums will make nests in hard-to-reach places like crawl spaces, attics, and patios that are left alone. They can also dig up gardens to find food and go through trash cans that aren’t being watched. Birds and bats can leave behind a lot of droppings that can damage the outside of your home.
HOW WILDLIFE ENTER YOUR HOME
Chimneys are often forgotten because many of them are no longer used or have been blocked off. However, when they are not in use, they are still a great place for birds, raccoons, and rodents to nest.
DOORS & WINDOWS
If you leave your doors or windows open or if there are spaces between them, animals can walk right in.
GAPS, VENTS, & DECKS
Most animals and birds can get into your home through these openings on your roof. Dormer and gable vents are another weak barrier that most animals can get past to get into your attic. Racoons, opossums, and other rodents can get into your home through any large vents that lead to the ductwork in your home. Decks, patios, and porches are often left alone, giving raccoons, opossums, skunks, and other animals a place to live.
REMOVAL & CONTROL
TRAPPING THE WILD ANIMALS
No matter if the animal is inside or outside your home, our experienced wildlife control experts will know where to strategically place a trap where it is most likely to work. Through this process, our team can remove the animals from your property in a safe and kind way.
Once wildlife trapping has caught your invasive pest, it will need to be taken off your property and taken to a place where it can be released or killed if it is sick or likely to spread disease.
KEEPING THE ANIMALS OUT
Once the animals have been removed, the places where they were getting in will need to be sealed and fortified to stop them from coming back.
AFTERMATH CLEANUP & REPAIR
Once animals are no longer able to get into your home, you will need to clean up all of their nesting materials, feces, and other body waste, as well as any other signs of wildlife activity, to get your home back to how it was before.
REPAIRS & RENOVATION
Wildlife can cause damage to your home, so you may need to fix or replace things like drywall, wiring, framing, and more.
