Over 30 years experience doing things the right way

This is a San Diego based company, owned and operated by Caring, Loving people who grew up Trapping Wildlife. And have now turned it into a Professional Humane Trapping, Control, and Removal Service. We trap and relocate wildlife all over San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles counties.

We are glad to offer one-on-one attentive client service.

We are aware that most people like and respect wildlife, but do not wish to see these animals in their houses.

We also know that there is a delicate balance between animals being pests and animals being cute and cudley.

These unwanted guests damage our homes when searching for food and shelter. Our clients have worked hard to maintain their houses - and we are trying to restore the balance between humans and wildlife. We work hand in hand with mother nature to offer our clients tranquility and safety. Once the animals are caught, they are relocated to a local wildlife preserve. We give them a second chance on life.


Robert S.Anderson

I have always liked wildlife. And now I have the chance to assist mother nature out when no one else will. I founded the firm in 2003 when I saw a need for Humane Wildlife Control, Trapping, and Removal. Before this, the firms that were around would euthanize the unwanted guests instead of moving them. Or they would use the procedure of catching everything around, and not exatracting the offending nuisance animals.

I have studied hard and long and have gained unmatched experience, I came up with an amazing talent, a sure fire way to catch these Wild Animals that were causing chaos in peoples lives. I not only get to have a job I wished for (accept for the skunk spraying.....ewwww) but I get to do what I love.

San Diego Dead Animal Removal

Sometimes animals die somewhere in the house. When these animals pass on it is usually difficult to move them. Removal of the animals is often a very dirty job. Often we have to reach into hot attics, underneath wet, muddy, and dusty homes, "sniff out" the animal, remove it and any affected materials, decontaminate the affected area, and then dispose of the carcass in an approved manner. Dead Animal Removal is not easy for sure and it is never a nice experience. However, we trying to make our clients happy by doing everything that we can in the most efficient way possible.

San Diego Skunk or Dead Animal Odor control

Our Odor Control Service encompasses:

Treating the affected location with special enzyme based biological decontaminating agents;
Treat the affected area with solutions to neutralize these bad smells.

Repair Service

Our Repair Service includes:

A detailed check of the home;
The installation of Barriers;
Fixing all possible access points.
We warranty our fixings for 30 Days on parts and 90 Days Craftsmanship.

Attic cleaning

Attics are usually the goal of roof rats, raccoons, opossums, and bats. While these animals are living there, they are making it dirty. The fecal matter can consist of harmful parasites, disease, or smells that are dangerous to humans. If not taken away not only will they pose a health risk, it will draw other animals back to the site.

Attic Decontamination can only be present after the animal removal is done. This is a different service from the Animal Removal process.

Humane Wildlife Trapping San Diego

San Diego Wildlife Trapping, Control and Removal Done Right!

It doesn't matter where you live, you are never more then three feet from wildlife.
The wild animals in your area are most definitely adept at finding their way into your homes, either through uncapped chimneys, open soffits and those of you with wood siding or wooden shingles are more at risk than the average roofing. Raccoons for example, are so strong they even tear off shingles and fascia. Once you've been invaded by nuisance wildlife, and they enter your structure, they have to make a nice bed for themselves, sometimes they just grab insulation, other times, they destroy wires and ducting to do this. Most of the animals that get into your attic, soon become bored and like to chew holes in walls and cabinetry. Entering through through old foundation vents to make a home under the house is a common occurrence too. But so is tearing up lawns in the spring time to forage for food such as grubs and earthworms, destroying gardens, and dumping over trash cans.

While in the attic or under the house, or even in the wall voids, the urine and feces, from these pests can build up and cause a great stench that can constitute health hazards to the homeowner and their pets!

San Diego Skunk Trapping

San Diego Skunk Trapping

Skunks and their spray, the most infamous smelly creature, with the Spraying of eye watering, nasal assaulting musk. The odor that skunks spray is in defense to larger predators, they dig holes in lawns, tear up foliage, eat garden produce. They are also known for being a host for rabies. Skunks often den under houses, sheds, Jacuzzis, decks, and any other opening they can fit through, or dig under. Which can be as small as a woman's fist. They rarely climb anything that is more than a foot and a half high. Finding shelter is one of their top priorities. So, if your house, shed, or the like isn't sealed, or rather not skunk proofed, they will move in and become your newest neighbor. Just what you've always wanted right? LOL. These well adjusted animals have some very bad habits. They can get into your trash, if left on the ground, dig up your lawn (tell tale signs a skunk has been in your yard, is that the holes in your lawn or flower beds resemble that of a small funnel, or cone shape.)

Skunks are a vital part of mother nature, these wonderful, stinky, cute, black and white Kitty's eat insects, and help control our rodent populations, but the down side to these Stink Bombs is that they also prey on chickens, the occasional rabbit, eat your produce (i. e. fruits, and vegetables, damage beehives, dig under our houses, sheds, Jacuzzis etc.) The best attribute of a skunk is that they eat spiders.

San Diego Raccoon Removal

San Diego Raccoon Removal

The raccoon (Procyon lotor) , sometimes spelled as raccoon, and also known as the common raccoon, North American raccoon, northern raccoon and colloquially as coon, is a medium-sized mammal native to North America.

The different types of damage which raccoons are capable of causing are almost too numerous to mention.

In urban environments, raccoons are adept at finding homes in uncapped chimneys, open soffits and don't mind tearing off shingles or fascia to gain entrance to an attic or wall void, ripping off foundation vents to make a home under the house is a common occurrence too. But so is tearing up lawns in the spring time to teach their young (kits) how to forage for food such as grubs and earthworms, destroying gardens, and dumping over trash cans. While in the attic or under the house, or even in the wall voids, the urine and feces, can build up and cause a great stench that can constitute health hazards to the homeowner. In more rural environments, raccoons can be highly destructive in and around poultry barns. Raccoons are very intelligent creatures who have no problems opening jars cabinets or the like.

San Diego Rattlesnake Wrangling |Snake Control | Snake Fencing

Rattlesnakes in the San Diego are humanely released in approved areas far from their capture sites. All Snake Control trapping is done in accordance with local, state, and federal laws. We humanely capture and remove most Snakes.

If you have venomous snakes (Rattlesnakes) in, near, or around, your home, they must be removed, and should only be Trapped by Our Rattlesnake Wranglers who have years of experience handling snakes and are Trained and Licensed Professionals who know how these creatures think and can react accordingly. In many cases, these snakes have caused, or will cause harm to people, pets, and livestock.

Preventative maintenance is highly recommended to keep those pesky snakes from returning.

The recipient of a snake bit knows how painful it can be. The doctors visits for you or your pet can leave you with a tremendous bill.

The materials needed cost about as much as the labor. A trench needs to be dug down at least six inches, and out about a foot. The average cost of materials for a job is $2. 50/foot. We do not mark up supplies of materials, we charge what we pay. The labor is charged at $4. 50/foot (labor includes digging down at least six inches and out about foot, fixing the fencing to either a wood fence, wrought iron, or chain link, then burning it.

If you have no fence and need a rebar fence (attaching the fencing to rebar that has been pounded into the ground) then the cost of the rebar will be added to the total.

* What damage do Rats & Mice do? *

Warning, these creatures can create electrical fires. They also eat through the plumbing and ducting systems. Rodents tend to leave behind urine and feces. These substances are a major health hazard. And must be removed immediately. Roof rats can transmit diseases like the rabies, bubonic plague and typhus. Roof rats will enter homes and buildings. They only need a hole the size of a quarter to gain entry. They can climb walls and use utility lines and fences to travel from structure to structure. They enjoy living in high places, like attics, are their preference. Roof rats do not burrow in the ground or swim. However, Norway rats do. Their favorite foods consist of fruits, vegetables, nuts, pet food and invertebrates (spiders and worms, for example) . They will also eat paper. Female roof rats can each have up to four litters a year, each containing five to eight young. In urban areas where they have no natural predators, the survival rate of the babies is high.

Customer Testimonials

Had several gophers destroying our lawn for the past couple of months. Contacted Rob based off the other yelp reviews and was so glad we did. He came out assessed the situation regarding the gophers. Also did a walk thru of our house and gave other helpful tips & recommendations. Week later gophers gone and lawn is starting to look back to normal.

Highly recommend if you're looking for someone to help with any pesky critters you might have.

Our house developed a horrendous smell and after some searching, we found what we thought to be a dead cat in the fireplace clean out. We immediately called Speedy Animal Control and Robert swung by within a few hours. He kept us informed on his ETA giving us time to get home from the office.

He quickly identified that it was actually a possum and got work. I had to leave to get back to the office, but came home that evening to a fresh smelling home, a cover where the animal had accessed the space, and an addressed, stamped envelope with an invoice (with no surprises). Robert is an expert at what he does and knows how to provide amazing customer service. I very rarely write reviews, but given the exceptional service, I needed to.

I hope I don't need to call him back, but he'll be the first and only person we call to resolve an animal issue.

Had a bad odor coming from what I thought was under the house, I had a bad feeling that someone was going to have to crawl under there and retrieve the carcass of a dead rodent. Not me... I called Speedy Animal Control and Robert came out did a quick assessment and found the bad boy under a kitchen cabinet in the toe kick area. He quickly removed the offender, cleaned up the debris and sanitized the area.
Now this is not a cheap service but it is well worth the price when I saw what he had to do and the tools he needed yup he is my go to guy in this area. Highly recommend Speedy Animal Control.

Robert came out today to check on the swallow netting as I had several extremely persistent sparrows (not swallows) get caught inside the netting. I couldn't figure out how they got in there, but Robert came and checked it out, figured out how they were getting in and offered some solutions.

Robert goes the extra mile and even gave me suggestions for some other issues (rattle snakes, squirrels, mice...etc). He even checked out a new garage we're building to see if anything could be done before the stucco went on.

Robert is just a stand up guy and I would recommend him for anything he does. Not many like him these days.

Robert Anderson, owner, 619 370-2761, came to my home to set traps for our raccoon problem the same day I called him. He evaluated the access routes and optimal placement of the traps. He thoroughly explained the trap mechanism and what he does with the animals after they're trapped. We got a huge raccoon the first night. He's asks to be texted by 7am for results. He came to retrieve the raccoon by 10am, and reset the freshly baited trap. We ended up getting two raccoons and after a few days of no more action, had the traps removed. We will definitely call Robert again should we get any more visitors. We are confident our koi pond is safe and our yard is no longer a playground for raccoons. He is extremely reasonable and goes above and beyond to make sure you're satisfied. He's a really nice guy too.

Excellent service for the money. I would hire again based on trying to trap a skunk that we were trying to get off the property. Unfortunately we didn't catch it but one of my family members noticed it walking off and leaving the property. Thankfully the skunk has not returned.

Robert the owner is very professional and is excellent at texting for updates and return calls. Thank you so much and I hope to do business with you again soon.
