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.

Raccoon Removal 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 in Attic Removal

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 Control

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.

Coyote Control 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.

Opossum Control in Lake Forest, CA

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.

Great people to work with!
John with CC has helped us twice in the last six years - first with a minor mouse problem, and then in troubleshooting a mystery animal that was raising a ruckus on the roof. In each case he was friendly, professional, and offered excellent guidance on the practical solutions. Highly recommend him, and this company.
Squirrels chewed siding of chimney. CC tech came out to assess situation. Fortunately animals not in attack. CC repair team came out and repaired damage and did a fine job. Very pleased with the business, their work and customer service.
Cannot say enough wonderful things about this company and Joe especially. We recently found a bat in our basement…SCARY! Called and asked for help, Joe came out at 8pm and was able to search the house, capture the bat safely and removed it from our home. His customer service was priceless to me and I highly recommend this company to everyone. Post visit he even sent a team to further assess our property and provide a quote for future needs.
They helped get rid of bats at our house and were friendly and easy to work with, highly recommend
We appreciated the quick response and the careful service by David Gleason. He explained each step of the process. He also returned to reset traps that had been sprung. He was professional and friendly. We highly recommend Critter Control.
Bryan was great. On time, professional, friendly. Most importantly, honest. No lies, no fear tactics, no gimmicks. Assessed the issue and was honest about the lack of work that actually needed to be done/was recommended, knowing that other places had dramatized and given several thousand dollar (4k+) estimates on a job that costs a couple hundred dollars. Can't recommend enough. Will be using for any future issues.
I’ve been using them for several years now. They are great!
Removed bats from our house and sealed up other areas of concern. Very responsive, explained things throughly to us, and did the work in a very timely manner. Much better than their two competitors that we also called. I would highly recommend them.
We have been having issues in our yard, and recently discovered large holes. Called this team, they immediately came out and determined the holes were partially exposed mole tunnels. They took care of the tunnels (as best they could), and trapped and caught a mole for removal. They were responsive, knowledgeable, and thorough. While I hope it is not needed - we would certainly reach out to them again should a need arise!
