Wildlife Capture Services in Santa Monica

Wild animals in Santa Monica are a common sight. Human development and the coastal city’s proximity to the mountains mean animals with shrinking habitats must find food, shelter, and places to nest. Unfortunately, this is often in walls, an attic, or underneath a home. Wildlife removal from your property is risky, which is why you need a professional who is equipped to eliminate creatures that can put you at risk of disease and injury.

Our Process

Animal Capture Wildlife Control specializes in animal capture in Santa Monica. Our capture process is always humane. Starting with a thorough inspection, we look for all evidence of the presence of animals, including where they are entering the structure. Our animal removal technicians set a few traps and wait a few days until the animals are trapped. We then leave more traps for up to a week; if no more animals are caught, we consider the problem resolved.

Our Services

We specialize in live animal capture and dead animal removal. Animals can die of disease, old age, or exposure to rat poison. If there’s a large dead animal under your home, such as a raccoon or opossum, the smell can last for months. A dead rat or mouse can leave odors behind for weeks. Deceased animals also attract flies, maggots, and potential disease.

Live animals pose a range of problems. They can cause various types of property damage. Squirrels and other creatures can chew through building materials and cause damage to electrical and even gas lines, possibly leading to fires. Animals can damage roof vents, chimneys, and foundations. A skunk can burrow under a foundation, which can lead to extensive problems.

Fortunately, we can provide animal damage repairs and also install barriers to prevent wildlife from continuing to threaten your home or business.

  • How do you trap animals?

We leave behind live cage traps. Once the animal steps on a platform, the door automatically closes, providing a cage where the animal is safe and usually cannot get out.

  • Are there animals you don’t trap?

We do not search for or pick up dogs. If you lost a dog, contact your local animal control company. Our technicians also don’t take calls to remove roadkill.

  • What about cats?

Cats caught in our traps are taken to the local animal shelter. We use the same humane practices but are not responsible for what happens to the cat once it’s sheltered.

  • How do you set your prices?

Our professionals have expertise in animal behavior, capture, and removal. We factor that into our pricing and the specifics of each job, including where the animals are located, the dangers associated with capturing them, and the need to sometimes remove them by hand. Contact us for an estimate.
