Wildlife Control & Removal
Wildlife Problems in Lake Forest, CA
Surrounded by eucalyptus groves and lush hills, Lake Forest, CA, is no stranger to wildlife. The area's warm climate means that animals like raccoons and opossums are active all year long. As a result, residents often come into conflict with pests that damage property and may harm pet dogs or cats.
Raccoons in Lake Forest
Raccoons cause a lot of trouble when they attempt to den indoors. They use their agile paws to break into vents or destroy roofing material to sneak into an attic. Once inside, a raccoon can tear up insulation, stain ceilings with urine and feces, and may chew on wires.
Bats tend to roost in dark, undisturbed spaces in houses, sheds, and garages across California. The animals can't make entry holes of their own, so they use existing gaps and cracks to get inside. Keeping roofs and siding in good repair is the best way to keep bat colonies from roosting in attics and other parts of a home.
Ground squirrel tunnels are a concern for California property owners. The pests' burrows create tripping hazards and may even damage lawn mowers. The rodents also gnaw on irrigation tubes and plastic sprinklers. Additionally, ground squirrels dig under building foundations, patio slabs, and stairs, which can result in structural issues.
Additional Nuisances in California
Coyotes often venture into cities like Lake Forest when food sources are scarce. Though they usually avoid humans, these scavengers have adapted to urban areas where they can sift through garbage for meals and find plenty of water. Residents should always keep a close eye on outdoor pets, as a cat or small dog is the perfect prey for a coyote.
While opossums pose little threat to California homeowners, they still cause problems both inside and outside of the home. These animals feed on berries and nuts in gardens but will also rummage in trash bins or raid pet dishes for food. If an opossum is seeking shelter, it may turn to an open crawl space or garage to build its den.

Karen Doherty and Kris Kepler
Excellent communications, execution and friendly. I highly recommend this company!
The Critter Control team went above and beyond to make sure that NO CRITTERS could get into my home. We thought we had conquered the problem, but we still heard squirrels getting in, so they returned to reassess and finish the job. They actually pulled up our deck boards and found that the critters were getting in because of a rotted board underneat the cantilever. They replaced the insulation, rotted boards, and put a metal sheeting over everything so NO squirrels or critters could chew their way in! If you need critter control - you need to contact them. They stand behind their work 100%.... Thank you Rodney & Team!! Great Job.
Eric was grate,give him 5 stars and much thanks.
Everyone is awesome!!

Unlike some other vendors, the people who come to the house and assess the job are the ones that will actually do the work, so you get to meet the people who will actually perform the work - no new people or subcontractors.

We had a great experience working with the crew from Critter Control San Jose. They patiently listened to our observations, we came up with strategies and ended up fixing suspect areas, trapping a couple of rats. Problem seems to have been solved and hope we don't need to call them again
Brandon was extremely thorough and knowledgeable. He was able to figure out where our mystery smell was coming from, removed the carcass, and cleaned/deodorized the entire area. We are very pleased with the job performed and the professionalism shown. Highly recommend!
