Lake Havasu City is a beautiful place and home to many people. It is also home to a wide variety of wildlife. While the critters may be fun to look at in the wild and natural areas, the last place where you want them to be is in your home or business. We offer wildlife control services for home and business owners throughout the area. Our technicians identify the type of wildlife problem that you have, find the place where the animals are accessing your home or building and use the most humane option possible to trap and remove the animals and relocate them to a more appropriate place.
Rats, Mice, and Ground Squirrels
Rats, mice, and squirrels are rodents. Their front teeth continuously grow, which means that they must continuously chew. These critters will chew through anything on your property or in your home or business. They are known to chew through wires, wood and plastic materials. These animals present a serious fire risk if they chew through live wiring. Their nesting materials easily catch fire. These rodents also carry diseases that are harmful to human health. They could also carry fleas, which could be harmful to your family and pets. We promptly identify the place where rodents are getting into your home or building, and set traps in order to capture and remove the animals. We will give recommendations to prevent future infestations.
Birds and Bats
Birds and bats may also gain access to your home or business. They are most likely to attempt to gain entry into a structure during the winter and spring months of the year. During the winter, bats may look for a heat source for their semi-hibernation and nesting periods. Chimneys, attics and garage alcoves are popular spots for bats. Birds may also attempt to build a nest in a chimney, awning, roof overhang, cornice or attic vent. The droppings of birds and bats are known to contain a plethora of bacteria, viruses and parasites that may cause illness in people and pets. The nesting materials also present a danger. We safely trap and remove birds and bats from homes and buildings. Our technicians also clean the droppings and remove any nesting materials for an additional fee.
Snakes and Lizards
Temperature is a driving force behind infestations of snakes in garages and sheds. As the pest is coldblooded, they rely on their external environment to regulate their temperature. Therefore, garages are prime nesting spots for their cool and moist climates, especially during dry summer months. Additionally, garages and outbuildings like sheds are frequently home to some favorite foods sources like rodents and insects. Snakes find their way into these spaces via open garage doors, cracks in the foundation around garages, and open windows. Generally, the most harm snakes ever do is frighten people. Snakes may bite if cornered or grabbed, though the bites of venomous snakes are dangerous.
Lizards are generally considered helpful reptiles that eat common insect pests like flies, ants, and spiders. Of the approximate 6,000 lizard species known around the world, about 160 species are native to the North American region. Preferred environments have plentiful sources of food and shelter. Given food scarcity, lizards will wander into residential areas looking for sustenance. However, the reptiles prefer the outdoors where food and water are abundant.
Skunks, Raccoons and Ring-tailed Cats
Skunks, raccoons and ringtails are attracted to food left behind by people. They will rummage through the garden, recycling bin or the dog bowl you left outside. Raccoons are commonly known as “trash pandas” because they easily scale garbage bins and dumpsters in search of a meal. Skunks, raccoons and ringtails may carry harmful diseases, like rabies. They make a mess of your property when rummaging for food and they may attack family pets or people who frighten them. We trap these critters and move them out of the area.
