Wildlife Control

At Peregrine we offer a variety of bird and wild life control services. Our focus is on removing the critter(s) in a timely and professional manner. Many of our services focus on capture and release, passive deterrence, and environmental modifications.

Skunks

Typically skunk dens can be found under front steps, sheds, porches, and decks. Live traps placed by the den entrance allow for the skunk(s) to be captured alive and relocated as required. In the summer months a skunk is typically caught in less than one week. In the dead of winter skunks typically semi hibernate for a period of about six weeks. It can be unpredictable in the winter months how long it will take to capture a skunk. Our approach is a passive approach when capturing live animals. This reduces the stress for the animal and allows a better opportunity of successful relocation.

Squirrels

Many times squirrels gain access to the roof line of homes and various structures. A common complaint usually is about one or two squirrels. The key to a successful solution is to capture as many squirrels as possible on the exterior of the property taking the pressure of the structure. Once all the squirrels have been caught then the access points can be sealed. Our approach is a passive approach when capturing live animals. This reduces the stress for the animal and allows a better opportunity of successful relocation.

Pocket Gophers

A single pocket gopher can destroy your garden in a very short time so it is good to take action as soon as you notice its presence.

Pocket gophers will burrow beneath your garden crops, ornamental plants and other herbaceous shrubs, trees and vines, feeding on the roots and the plant’s below-ground fleshy parts as they dig. The mounds of soil they leave behind can make it difficult to mow your lawn and will certainly ruin its smooth green look!

Pocket gophers may even chew through your plastic hoses and lawn sprinkler equipment and their burrows can drain off irrigation water and lead to soil erosion.

So if you have pocket gophers it would be best to call us right away. In residential settings we usually find just one pocket gopher per group of mounds. On acreage anything from four to seven gophers are common. Our service consists of first locating the main burrow before trapping and eliminating the gopher.
