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 San Diego 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 El Cajon animal control for wildlife issues.

El Cajon Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I hire a pro, or remove the rats myself?

The choice between using professional rat removers and doing the often considered simple action of removing the rats on your own is often hard to make. However, it all depends on whether or not you are fit to remove the rats on your own. Contrary to popular belief, rats are actually very intelligent animals and would sometimes simply escape every trap you place inn their way unhurt. Their trapping is therefore not as simple as envisioned by most people.


There are many professionals who provide the services of rat removal. While it will often seem that you can remove the rats on your own, sometimes the action might just be beyond you for the following possible reasons;

1. Rats are very intelligent animals. In most occasions where they have set nets in your house, they have learnt your habits. Trapping them on your own would therefore prove increasingly difficult. Professionals would often provide a way out in such circumstances since they know rat behaviors better than the house owner.
2. Most people are not capable of killing the rats on their own, or seeing the rats being taken down by traps either. In such occasions, the hiring of rat removers would be very essential.
3. Some people are not fit enough to undertake the task of finding rat nests, trapping them and killing them. This can be due to health problems or even lack of the necessary skills to set the rat traps and to locate the rat hiding places.


As much as the professionals will provide the much needed solution to the rat problem in your house, their use is also disadvantageous in some occasions. The use of professionals in removing rats from your house has several undoings. Rat removal by professional can often prove to be very expensive. On average, most rat removal companies charge between 200 and a 1000 dollars which could be pretty extreme and expensive for most home owners.


The hiring of professionals to remove rats is sometimes worth the cost. If you canít do the job yourself, it is important that you have someone else do it for you since rat infestation in homes is very risky either way.
