Our Animal Control Services

At PestBear, we offer comprehensive wildlife removal services, addressing a diverse array of animals that might find their way into your home or business. However, the creatures we most frequently encounter are bats and rodents. These species, due to their size and agility, can often infiltrate structures through small gaps and crevices, making them common unwelcome guests. Whether you're dealing with a single bat or a family of rodents, you can rely on our experienced team for swift, safe, and humane removal. Always remember, no matter the scale or nature of your wildlife problem, PestBear is just a call away.


Bats, while essential contributors to our ecosystem, can pose several challenges when they decide to roost in our residential or commercial properties. Due to their nocturnal nature and quiet behavior, a bat infestation can often go unnoticed until it becomes a significant problem.

Bats can cause substantial structural damage by staining and corroding structures with their urine and feces, known as guano. This waste material not only emits a pungent odor but is also a breeding ground for a fungus that can lead to histoplasmosis, a severe lung disease. Additionally, bats are known carriers of rabies, a fatal disease transmitted through bites or scratches.

But there's no need to panic. At PestBear, we're experts at managing bat intrusions. We prioritize the safe and humane removal of bats, ensuring minimal stress for the animals. Our team uses advanced tools and follows strict guidelines to safely remove bats from your property and prevent future intrusions. We adhere to industry best practices and regulations, so our process is not just effective but also compliant with local and federal laws protecting bats.


Rodents, with their tendency to gnaw and multiply rapidly, can present formidable challenges for any residential or commercial property. The persistent gnawing of rodents can damage insulation materials, leading to impaired thermal performance and higher energy costs. Furthermore, they can contaminate the environment with their droppings and nesting materials, posing health risks and creating unpleasant living or working conditions.

At PestBear, we handle rodent intrusions with a high degree of proficiency. Our team, well versed in dealing with the nuances of rodent behavior, applies effective techniques to remove these unwelcome guests from your property. We adhere strictly to all local and federal laws, taking a methodical approach to managing rodent intrusions without causing unnecessary pain to the animals. In doing so, we strive to create a safer, cleaner, and more comfortable environment for your home or business.

Securing Your Property Against Wildlife Intrusions

Securing your property against wildlife intrusions is a crucial preventative measure that home and business owners should undertake.

Here are some valuable tips to help you keep unwanted visitors at bay:

  • Seal entry points: Regularly inspect your home for any cracks, holes, or gaps and seal them promptly. Animals can squeeze through surprisingly small spaces, so even minor gaps can provide an entry point for wildlife.
  • Secure trash bins: Wildlife are often attracted to the scent of trash. Ensure that your trash bins are securely closed and, if possible, stored in a locked area like your garage.
  • Trim overhanging trees: Branches that hang over your roof could provide a pathway for wildlife to access your home. Regular trimming of overhanging branches can minimize this risk.
  • Install chimney caps and vent covers: Open chimneys and vents are welcoming entry points for wildlife. Install chimney caps and vent covers to prevent access.
  • Don't leave pet food outdoors: Leaving pet food outside can attract wildlife. If possible, feed your pets indoors or ensure that all food is removed immediately after your pets have eaten.
  • Maintain your garden: Regular maintenance of your garden can deter wildlife. This includes removing fallen fruit from fruit trees, securing compost bins, and cutting back thick shrubbery where animals may nest.

Remember, while these tips can significantly reduce the risk of wildlife intrusions, they cannot eliminate the possibility. If you encounter a wildlife intrusion, don't try to handle it on your own. Contact the experts at PestBear for swift, safe, and humane animal control services.

What to Do When an Animal Enters Your Home

If you find an unwelcome guest in your home, it's important to remember that safety is paramount— both for you and the animal.

Follow these steps:

  • Remain calm: Wild animals are often scared and unpredictable when they find themselves in unfamiliar settings like your home. Your panic may exacerbate the situation.
  • Keep your distance: Never attempt to corner or capture the animal. This can lead to injury for both you and the animal.
  • Isolate the animal: If possible, close off the area where the animal is located. This could be as simple as shutting the door to the room.
  • Keep children and pets away: Ensure children and pets are kept in a separate room away from the animal to prevent any possible interactions.
  • Contact PestBear: Attempting to remove the animal yourself can lead to injury and unnecessary stress for you and the animal. Let our team take care of the issue.
