HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
Being close to nature has its advantages but can also cause problems. Most of the time, the farther you are from a big city, the more likely 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 diseases 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
Pests are captured using humane and environmentally friendly methods by Carlsbad Pest Control. We offer to live-capture the animals and remove any already there, making them no longer a nuisance. Because a dead animal will draw additional pests that eat it, including flies, ants, beetles, rats, etc., we don’t utilize traps that kill wildlife.
WILDLIFE TO LOOK OUT FOR
If you live in southern California and own your own home, you may 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. Still, they always bring diseases and parasites and mess with them, which could also cause damage. Most of the time, homeowners have to deal with the following animals:
HOW WILDLIFE ENTER YOUR HOME
Chimneys are often forgotten because many are no longer used or have been blocked off. However, they are still a great place for birds, raccoons, and rodents to nest when they are not in use.
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 roof vents are other weak barriers that most animals can bypass to get into your attic. Raccoons, 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
Whether 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 safely and kindly.
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
All possible entry points must be sealed and fortified to prevent wildlife from returning. Most wildlife animals are creatures of habit and tend to return to places they have already nested.
AFTERMATH CLEANUP & REPAIR
Once the wildlife has been exterminated from your home or company, cleaning up the messes it left behind is the following step. This includes the nest, any excrement or other waste the animal left behind, and any other evidence of wildlife presence.
REPAIRS & RENOVATION
Wildlife can cause damage to your home, so you may need to fix or replace things like drywall, wiring, framing, and more. Some of the damage could be dirty or torn insulation. Our team can help you replace old insulation with TAP insulation resistant to mold and pests.
