Q&A with Local Franchisee
Can you please describe the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?
Rats, raccoons, and armadillos. Animals in the attic, in conflict with pets and/or outdoor family activities, or getting into trash.
How do the seasons affect nuisance wildlife activity in your area?
The summer rainy season does displace wildlife. In the springtime, the drought sends wildlife looking for fresh water. Our mild climate makes nuisance animals active year-round.
What are some common signs of nuisance wildlife activity?
Scratching in the attic, digging near bushes and/or lawns, soffit damage, and droppings in the attic.
Any prevention or exclusion tips for local residents in your area?
Pick up all fallen fruit from around trees/yards, treat lawns for grubs, and be cautious when feeding birds, as these things can bring in nuisance wildlife.
When should homeowners call Critter Control?
As soon as they hear noises or see animal signs. We are open 24/7 for all needs.
