||Wildlife Trapping: We are expert critter trappers, and we are very humane to wild animals. We trap them in live cages and relocate them. We make sure that we arrive at your house immediately to remove the trapped critters, so that they don't suffer. Successful trapping relies upon many subtle factors, from the right trap, the right bait, location, and a host of other very important factors. Most of the time, we are bolting traps to the roof or to entry holes to ensure 100% success in trapping the target animals only. |
||Exclusion Repairs: This is perhaps the single most important factor in ensuring a successful wildlife control job. If you have animals in your attic, walls, or any part of your home, then they got in somehow, either through existing holes (vents, architectural gaps, etc) or holes that they clawed or chewed open themselves. We find all of these vulnerable open entry areas and seal them shut, permanently, with bolts and steel, and make sure that animals can't get back in again, with guarantee.|
||Attic Cleanup: If you've had animals living in your attic, then you've got all that they bring with them - urine, feces, parasites, nesting material, food, pheromones that can attract new animals, and the zoonotic diseases that can affect you and your pets. We clean your attic and restore it to its original sanitary condition. We decontaminate and deodorize the attic and eliminate the biohazard, and we get rid of the smell that can attract new animals to try to live in your house. |
||Sacramento Bird & Bat Control: Bird and bat control are specialty projects. While we do certainly perform these services on residential homes, some of these projects are very large and complex commercial projects. We can safely remove a huge colony of bats from a building, without harming any, and completely bat-proof the building 100%. As for pesky birds, such as pigeons, we install bird exclusion devices that will keep your structure bird-free for good. |
||Rat & Mouse Control: We are experts at California rodent control. We do it the correct way - we don't just throw some poison in your attic on a monthly basis. This will not solve the problem! We solve it permanently, usually in little more than a week, and you'll have no more rats or mice, guaranteed. We solve the root of the problem by sealing shut any and all areas that rodents can use to enter your house. We trap and remove them all, and you are spared the never ending cycle and dead rat stink that comes with poison. |

Effective Ways To Keep Skunks and other Wildlife From Your Home And Yard
Skunks have become common nuisance to homes and yards at an increasing rate. They are nocturnal rodents that like to wander around your home in the evening as they look for something to eat. They eat your pet food if they find it lying around, and if you have a garden, they eat their way around every plant you have. They are notorious for stinking up your yard if you try to chase them away by their self-protective stink bomb mechanism. They are destructive, and they can spread parasites and diseases to you and your pets hence it is important to keep them of your home and yard.
Tips to get rid of skunks and other wildlife
1. Keep your garbage pest proof
Skunks are scavengers by nature, so they will find their way into your trash cans if you leave them unattended. Make sure that your trash cans have tight fitting lids and they are not easy to topple over. This will prevent the skunks from toppling them over and scattering their contents all over your yard as they look for something to feed on.
2. Install flood lights around your yard
Skunks like other rodents do not like being seen since they have fear of being preyed on by carnivorous predators. When you install flood lights, make sure that they are triggered by motion so that you save energy since they will work only when there is movement activity.
3. Skunk proof your garden
Skunks will invade your garden and eat all your plants if you do not skunk proof it. You can do this by installing a mesh fence around it. Make the base of the fence as solid as possible since they can dig under it and go through it. You can set up traps around your garden to prevent them from getting to your plants. Once you catch a skunk with a trap, it is advisable to call for professional help to get rid of it since they can gas you in the process.
4. Remove pet food from the compound by sun down
Most people attract skunks in their yard and homes by leaving trails if pet food all over the compound. Make sure that you doggy or kitty bowl is secured away by the end of the day. You can train your pets to feed inside the house so that they do not leave traces of food outside. If you have a barn or other domestic animals such as goats and cows, make sure that their feeding troughs are well lit at night to keep off skunks.
5. Make sure that your compound is free from bugs
Skunks are predators to bugs and insects. If there is something that attracts insects to your yard, call an exterminator to come and deal with the insects. This could be caused by compost pits in your garden or stagnant water that is not treated. Ensure that you empty your trash cans as often as possible to keep away insects that are attracted to stinking garbage. Some plans such as blue gum may also attract skunks due to harboring moths and other species of caterpillars so have the exterminator examine them and get rid of them for you.
