Wildlife Pests in Apache Junction
Along with the rest of the Phoenix East Valley area, the desert city of Apache Junction, AZ, is growing steadily. When construction takes over wildlife habitats, residents may spot raccoons, squirrels, and bats on their lawns. Looking for resources and trying to adapt to changing conditions, these pests will enter yards or even homes.
Once raccoons locate a food source, they tend to return frequently. As a result, pests that find open trash cans and outdoor pet food in Apache Junction yards may decide to den under decks or in attics and sheds. Since the animals can contaminate soil and water with raccoon roundworm eggs via their waste, an infestation is a health and safety issue.
Rock squirrels in Arizona often live in burrows under structures like sheds or garages. Their digging may create tripping hazards and damage foundations or sidewalks. A squirrel can also destroy landscaping plants and gardens while searching for and storing food.
Bats and Rabies
Because of the state's warm weather, bats thrive in Apache Junction. These pests will roost in attics if other places, such as caves, are unavailable. Because the bat is a rabies vector in Arizona, homeowners shouldn't wait to seek help with indoor colonies. People and pets can contract this disease through the bites or scratches of an infected animal.
Other Wildlife in Apache Junction
Residents sometimes deal with predators, like coyotes and snakes. Fallen fruit, small prey, and garbage can draw a coyote near the house in search of a meal. Though they rarely bite people, these animals may hunt pets or livestock.
Snake encounters around Apache Junction homes can be dangerous as well. Able to squeeze through holes in fences and hide in tall grasses or under debris, the pests are hard to deter. Depending on the species, a snake bite could provoke serious medical problems.

Wildlife Control Reviews
Our current technician is very good. He always calls us the day before so we know when he is coming. He also has done a very good job keeping pocket gophers in check.

Mike did our service today. He was awesome! He addressed and resolved a couple of critter issues we were having. It's really helpful to be reminded when he was coming and texted me when he was on his way. Thank you for the great service!

We appreciate that your company was able to rid our property of the squirrel activity that we observed. We were concerned that the squirrels would dig under the foundation of our house (which had happened to a neighbor in our area).
Thank you for doing what you said you would do to eliminate this squirrel activity.

We personally have a bad infestation for a while, Critter Control has been stellar in the customer service/ communication department, We are still working on the infestation but CC has been absolutely above and beyond our expectations with some of our projects hurdles.

It has been very effective at reducing the number of mice, lizard, and snake sightings. During one visit Edgar removed a rattlesnake he came across. We may see a snake maybe two to three times during the spring and summer months, but it has been far less than before.

Melinda is a true professional. She has helped us maintain a "critter-free" home. Whenever a mole decides to visit our property, she is right on top of it. Her recommendations about mosquito control made a big difference for my boys to be able to enjoy our backyard.

We use Critter Control to deter snakes. We haven't seen any since using the monthly service. They are quick to answer questions and explain snake behavior. Also, if any are found they remove them with no extra charge.

Have been using for almost 10 years after a record rat invasion. The help I had back then was like a super-helpful friend taking a few weeks to rid me of that invasion. Over the years I have had a few other representatives. They are always nice and helpful.

On recommendations from a nearby pest control company, I called Critter Control for suspicious bat droppings
Madison came out the same day to do an inspection. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and highly professional. She examined the ‘matter’ that had been scattered on my threshold and thought it was foliage. But she then asked to go up to my attic space where the bats could be roosting. She had to walk up 3 flights of stairs with a heavy ladder. She again spent some time searching all the nooks and crannies and found nothing.
She seemed so interested in her craft, it was truly inspiring to see! She reassured me and is writing up a prevention strategy for my appraisal. She charged me NOTHING!! I am so impressed. We need more Madisons in this world!

Daniel did a great job pigeon proofing. We have a huge pigeon problem in our neighborhood and the pigeons were roosting in the gutters of my house and my two next door neighbors, who also had nests in their gutters and under their air conditioner. Pigeon poop filled our gutters, and was piled on the outside floor when I bought the house. Since Daniel's pigeon proofing, and my neighbors also pigeon proofing their gutters, fireplace chimney, air conditioners, and removal of nest, I rarely see pigeons any more. Only the lovely native sparrows, robins, vermillion fly catchers, and mourning doves visit our property now.
