Many of California's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving California's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Butte county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Chico animal control for wildlife issues.

Chico Wildlife Removal Tip: What equipment is needed to trap a raccoon? If you have a rogue raccoon in your home, you’re going to need to know what tools you’ll need to not only get rid of it, but also ensure the problem doesn’t happen again. Oh, and whatever you need to clear up after the pesky creature too because sadly, these are one of nature’s messiest little fur-balls. They’re not easy to catch so you’ll need a proper cage trap built for raccoons as well as the right kind of bait, plus materials to seal any holes which could be ripped open by further raccoons or other wild animals - sealant, expanding foam, steel mesh, that kind of thing. Steel is a great material to use because very few animals can get past it - rats can’t even gnaw through this metal. You’re going to need to make sure you’re protecting yourself against this raccoon too - thick gloves because of the sharp claws and teeth, enzyme cleaners, scrubbing brushes, face masks, etc. Plus at the end of it all, there may need to be a fire to get rid of everything you’ve used. There is a lot of equipment needed to trap a raccoon and you know who’ll have everything you need… A professional wild animal removal expert. Just like me!

Chico Animal News Clip: Squirrel trapping - How to Catch Squirrels with Traps - Having squirrels in your house is annoying. This is because the squirrels make annoying noises and can be a bother especially while sleeping. Squirrel traps come in mainly two forms. The first is the lethal trap. This trap kills the trapped squirrel by chocking it or crushing it. This type of trap is dangerous to use. It is also an inhumane way of trapping the squirrel. The other trap is the live trap; this trap captures the squirrel inside a cage. It is safer to use, and it is the most preferred.

You can use the following easy instructions to trap squirrels:
Before setting the trap, first study the squirrel's daily routine. Make sure you know the time it goes out and when it comes back into the attic. This way, you will know what time to set up the trap, and the trap will catch the squirrel.

Ensure you place the trap where squirrels are most likely to be found in your house. If it is in the yard, squirrels are likely to be where the bird feeders are. Attics are popular places where squirrels hide inside the house. Mother squirrels like raising their young ones in attics due to the safe environment away from predators. You can set your trap in the attic to be able to catch the squirrels there.

Once you have identified a place to set the trap, set it on stable grounds. A stable trap ensures that the squirrel stays in the trap until you release it. If the trap is unstable, the squirrel can escape.

Wait for a while before putting any bait on the trap. This gives the squirrel time to get used to trap. You can also leave the trap doors open so that the squirrel can get used to go in and out of the trap. This is important because once you decide to trap the squirrel; your chances of capturing it are high since it does not consider the trap a threat.

When you are ready to catch the squirrel, then set the trap. Do so by hooking up the rod found on the back of the trap you are setting. When the squirrel gets into the trap, the rod will get unattached causing the trap door to close.

You can use vegetables or nuts as bait in the trap. Ensure that you place the bait at the back of the trap. This way, the squirrel will have to enter into the trap to get the bait, and it is easy to catch it then.

Once you have set the trap, ensure you check on it hourly. This is important in case one of your pets or those of your neighbor are trapped. This way, you are able to release the pets on time.

If you find the squirrel trapped, ensure that there is no way out for the squirrel. You can contact an exterminator or the wildlife service to come get the trapped squirrel.
