Turkeys in Moraga

Our company takes us to many neighborhoods daily and regularly we see or find wild animals. In this case we spotted wild turkeys just going their own business in a secluded area of Moraga.

When the ants go marching in

As we were performing a pest inspection, we came across this large ant colony. If left alone, ants can easily find their way into homes and infest pantries and other rooms.

Pigeon Abatement

A quick report on our pigeon abatement program. We have placed the trap in the video below and have catched 16 birds fairly quickly. Customer is very happy to see the bird population decrease. If you manage a property and are having a problem with pigeons, give us a call.

Varied Carpet Beetle

One of our new customer send us a ziplock bag with a few tiny bugs inside for id. The bugs are the size of a dot from a fine point sharpie. I used an app to maximize the size and better id the insect. It is the larvae stage of a “Varied Carpet Beetle”.

Canadian Geese in Brentwood

Brentwood is a wonderful city to live in. I was driving on Balfour and made a turn behind ARCO gas station and found this large group of geese. I play Shadow Lakes Golf course regularly and have seen the damage these birds can make to the fairways and greens.

Rodent Inspection

Inspection of a Church for rodent activity. Rats and mice can find any opening available to gain access into the building.

Bats

This video shows the evidence bats leave behind. If you have bats roosting somewhere on your house, just leave a light on all nights. The bat will avoid the light and go somewhere else to rest and eat. Keep doing that for a few months every night and the bat will eventually go somewhere else.

Bird control

I saw this huge bird flying among trees in a parking garage in Oakland. I thought it was a hawk, but seems to be a type of young heron. This video shows a car parked directly under the tree and is covered in bird poop. Probably it’s been parked there for several days or weeks but the bird damage is tremendous.

Pigeon mites

We have been hired by a large apartment housing to once and for all remove and fix the chronic pigeon problem they’ve had for many years. Other large pest control companies have tried and failed. With our knowledge of bird behaviour and techniques, these pigeons will be a thing of the past in the next few months. We estimate they have about 100+  birds living on this property. Just on the first day we already removed some birds and placed them in this box and you can see all the bird mites coming out from the pigeons.

Pigeons in Brentwood, Oakley and Antioch

We get frequent calls from Brentwood, Oakley and Antioch to deter birds from homes. The bird problem is becoming a real headache for hundreds of homeowners and businesses. This video shows the parasites these pigeons carry with them. Don’t let pigeons make a home of your home.
