"We had problems with rodents in our attic. We called another animal removal service but ended up going with
because we felt like their professionalism" was exceptional. Not only did they work in a timely manner, but scheduling the appointments were easy and seamless. We felt like we were informed of exactly what issues we had and what the cost would be. It was a good experience and we feel confident that
will stand behind their service. We highly recommend them and would definitely use them in the future if necessary.

"On
16, 2014 Mr.
came to my home to help me humanely evict squirrels from my attic. I explained that there was squirrel" activity in two areas of my attic, on opposite sides of my house: the southeast corner and the northwest corner. The activity in the northwest corner was new. During the visit, Mr.
told me that he or his staff would do a thorough examination of the
, soffit and fascia of my house to locate the squirrels' entry points. As necessary, he would place traps and humanely relocate the squirrels. Once he was sure the squirrels were no longer in the attic, he would seal off all entry points to the house. I invited Mr.
into the house to examine the southeast area crawlspace where there was evidence of activity (tunnels in the insulation, droppings and walnuts) and he said that would not be necessary.
’s fee for this service was $425.00 and the contract promised a 10 year guarantee against the target animal (in this case, squirrels) entering the area he was contracted to correct.
’s business card states that he is available 7 days a week / 24 hours a day. I heard nothing from
as to scheduling, protocol or progress once he took my check. Some weeks later, I was in my neighbor’s yard and from that view I could see a trapped squirrel on my roof.
had not alerted me that traps had been set or let me know when they would be checked once they were set. It was a
that I saw them. I was alarmed because the trap was on a metal roof on a day with a temperature over 90 degrees and it was noon. In hot weather, a metal roof temperature can exceed 150 degrees. I was knew the squirrel would certainly suffer and die in that environment and I had no way to get it down. I called
immediately and he said that he could not come out that day, despite the 7 days a week / 24 hours a day declaration on his business card. I insisted he come because it was unfair to the squirrel and to me for the squirrel to suffer in a trap on my hot metal roof.
came out and removed the squirrel. He hammered a bit at the soffit and declared that all the squirrels had been caught. I asked about the entry points and he had no answer. I asked the about the squirrels on the other side of the house and he said everything was taken care of. He was unable to describe what had been found or what had been done, stating that his staff took care of it. In mid November, I heard activity in the northeast corner of my house, exactly where it had been in the past when I originally contracted the service. I went into the attic crawlspace where there was evidence of the same activity that I had invited
to see in
(and he had declined). I called him and told him what was happening.
said he did not remember this job and that he would have to look at the paper work. Despite the 7 days a week / 24 hours a day advertisement, I have not heard back from
since that phone call. I wrote Mr.
on December 2, 2014 stating the exact information in this review. I told him that I am no longer interested in his services and that he had not kept the promises offered on his business card or contract – a violation. I told him that I have no confidence in his abilities, his ethics or his customer service. I asked for a full refund of my payment. I have heard nothing from him. I resent the letter February 26, 2014.

Animal removal

Animals are opportunists. Once they get access to an attic, they make themselves at home. Getting them to move out, and stay out, may require the services of an animal removal professional.

We called Maple Lane Pest Control to get rid of squirrels. The woman said they didn't handle squirrels and referred us to A & D. We called A & D and the woman told us the $179 price to come out & $89 per squirrel captured. She checked and said their crew would be out in 3 hours (about 25 miles away).

came early. They went around the house, but didn't see any squirrel holes. They did see a mouse hole under the wooden chimney structure. They inspected the attic and found evidence of mice. When asked for what they recommended,
Oceanside Animal Removal Services Provider Name Locked
said poison, which in the wintertime might last 6 months. It forces the mice to leave the attic. The hole can be plugged 2 weeks after. They said the cost would be an extra $89. We agreed & they returned to the attic and set the poison. They said that they don't have to return. He said the mice could return since we "fed" them.

also warned us of feeding the squirrels with corn & peanuts; and the birds with seed. He said that the mice get it either from the storage in the garage or what falls on the ground. When making out the bill

said they were members of ANGIES LIST and I could print out a $10 coupon for first visit. p.s. When I was near their pickup truck, I smelled an animal smell. I asked

and he said they had two skunks in the back. I asked him how they prevented getting sprayed by the skunks. He said he holds up a sheet when approaching the trapped animal and any spray gets on the sheet. Then he places he sheet over the cage.

is so awesome and professional. My husband and I are go glad we went with them and not this other company that lied and said we had around 15 rats and that the cost would be 9,000! There were a total of 3 rats..... Our issue took particularly long, from November until now, but that's because our attic space is odd and split into 3 separate areas and the fact that our house is pier and beam doesn't help.

was constantly out here checking on the traps and sealing up entry ways. over the span of the work there were 3 different guys who came out and tended to the issue and all were great! easy to deal with and very professional. Once there was no more activity in the attic and everything was sealed up it was time to do the disinfecting in the attic. Because I am very sensitive to certain chemicals they completely understood and worked with me on how to go about this. They were very accommodating and understanding. I couldn't recommend them more.

The inspection went well. They did a very thorough job. One technician came out and completed the inspection in about 60 minutes. They gave us an estimate for additional work but the quote was too high. I had no problem scheduling the deal.

From the initial call they we helpful and responsive; I spoke to a lady initially and she answered all my questions since I had never had this problem before; scheduled the service for the next morning; I called back about 10 minutes later since I was not going to be available and want to pay ahead; spoke to man who was already aware of my conversation and passed me back to the lady for CC details.

came to the house, inspected the attic crawlspace and confirmed a lively rat infestation. He went around the house and identified all the spots where rats could get in, then blocked those entry points with wire mesh and foam. (There were a lot of them & he was up and down ladders and all over the roof for a couple of hours) He set traps in the attic to catch any rats left inside, then returned regularly to remove the little bodies.

was prompt and professional, and our rat problem seems to be 100% solved.

was ahead of time and did an excellent professional job. I have been using this company since 2009. They offer a yearly contract which is very good to have, if you live in a wooded area.

These guys ROCK! This is the second time I've used them and they don't disappoint. The first time was a CRAZY duck that literally terrorized our neighborhood and pooped EVERYWHERE. This time I immediately called them after my son came running - being chased by wasps - we were cleaning a car that hasn't been driven in a while and there was a wasp nest under the hood of the car as well as millions of gigantic fire ants and they were all nested in there as it had been sitting under a tree and all the leaves that had dropped down in hood with the windshield wipers. YUCK! I couldn't even watch.
They took care of everything and I couldn't ask for better service. BTW, I set this appt. on SUNDAY for Monday, they really made sure they worked me into the schedule and
