Wildlife Pests in Surprise
Squirrels in the Desert
Many squirrel species in Surprise, AZ, endure the region's hot climate by plundering the suburbs for resources. Ground squirrels burrow in yards and eat from gardens, while tree squirrels squeeze through gaps in roofs or dormers to nest indoors.
As Surprise continues to grow and expand, wildlife sightings will remain common. For example, local raccoons often adjust to changes in their habitat rather than moving on. The pests den in homes and sheds, leaving feces behind. Raccoon poop can contain diseases, so be careful around these pests and their waste.
Bats and Pigeons in the Area
Surprise, AZ, is a popular place for bats and pigeons to gather. Bats can be found in attics, wall voids, sheds, and barns.
Infestations produce a lot of urine and feces, which creates unpleasant odors and can even stain walls and ceilings. Additionally, the flying pests are known carriers of rabies and contribute to the spread of histoplasmosis.
Pigeons gather on the roofs of homes. Since they construct their nests in gutters and chimneys, their presence is often considered a fire hazard. Furthermore, their droppings stain walls and sidewalks.
The city is also home to several species of rattlesnakes. Mohave and western diamond back species are among the most dangerous. These pests hide under brush, wood piles, and large rocks in Surprise backyards. Although not typically aggressive, rattlesnakes strike out if they're feeling agitated or threatened. Their bites can be deadly if they go untreated.

Tom Hanson is awesome! We're renovating and the roof is opened up, so here come the rats. So gross. I contacted Critter Control via their website, got a call back within the hour, and Tom was on property the next morning. He studied our situation and gave thorough, thoughtful advice—which did not include using their services! Instead, he taught us how to manage the situation until we can deploy a more permanent solution. When the house is sealed up again, Tom and Critter Control will return to ensure the complete removal of all unwanted creatures. Thank you, Tom and Critter Control. We appreciate your great service!
Cooper was punctual, knowledgeable, and reassuring. His trained eye noticed things we would not have seen. His investigation was thorough and answered all of questions. Highly recommend.

Critter Control has solved my problems for several years. I would recommend them to everyone. Their representatives are always prompt, knowledgeable, courteous and very helpful in solving problems.
Raymond was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He paid attention to detail. Good Job!! Thankyou!!
I am so glad I had Critter Control come and inspect my house! The problem was located and fixed immediately and since then I have not had any more problems with bats. Money well spent!!!
I connected Critter Control Orlando and was surprised, though elated that an actual person quickly answered. She was pleasant and efficiently scheduled a visit to my house to solve my varmit problem. The appointment was the next day. As arranged, I got a call from Ryan the next morning to tell me his eta. He arrived right on time and after explaining the procedure, got right to work. After a survey of our attic, he told us the problem and gave us a price to fix it. He explained exactly what would be done and an approximate number of visits it would take. I found Ryan to be easy to communicate with and an excellent customer relations person. I will be recommending Critter Control to my friends and neighbors.
We had a raccoon in the attic and this team of professional workers caught him after days of detective work. It was a pleasure working with them and having them at my house. I especially want to thank John and Kenzie!
After months of fighting moles in our yard ourselves and with the help of a landscaper, with no success, Critter Control caught a mole within a week. Very reasonably priced and very thorough. They’re the experts! We should have called them a lot sooner.
Justin was very professional and he and his team did the work quickly and thoroughly. This is a nice company to work with.
