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 handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:

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 Santa Clara 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 Los Altos animal control for wildlife issues.

Los Altos Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Raccoons Live In Trees Or Sleep In Trees?

Raccoons are found a lot in woodland areas because of the trees. They have many uses for trees including as protection from predators, as shelter, as a good area to find water and more. They do not actually live on treetops. If a tree has many branches, they can navigate their way to the top if they want to scout the area, but they cannot sleep there.

Where Do They Live?

Raccoons can make their homes almost anywhere at all.

- Tree dens: they can find timber trees and other trees that have hollows at the bottom and burrow them as dens.
- Urban living: some raccoons have adapted to living in urban areas and make temporary nests near food and water supplies.
- Other animal holes: many raccoons will adopt holes and burrows dug by other animals for their own.

Dependent On Regions And Weather

The most welcoming region for raccoons is woody areas surrounded by crops, farms and water bodies. Apart from crops, raccoons can also feed on other animals like frogs, fish and even dead animals on the road because they are omnivorous. Regions with trees that have numerous branches are always the best for raccoons. This makes it easy for them to navigate the tree and move fast as they do. If the weather is too cold, raccoons will hide under trees and use their body warmth as insulation.


Raccoons are nocturnal animals. They do not move around in the day time except it is very necessary. If a mother raccoon is seen in the daytime, it is searching for food so it can generate enough breast milk to feed it's young.


Raccoons mostly hunt for food during the night. This is the best time they operate, that is why homeowners might miss the presence of raccoons on their property save for the mess they leave behind.

Raccoons use trees to rest and as a shield from predators. They don't live on tree tops, but they can make dens in tree hollows.
