Why Wildlife Exclusion?

In the state of California it is illegal to trap and relocate wildlife. All animals that are trapped and taken away from where they are found must be killed and the service providing the eviction does not have to tell you. Be sure to ask when you are booking with a company to see if they provide humane evictions. To read about trapping laws take a look at our Trapping Laws page.

AWES offers a humane and life-oriented approach to animal control. Techniques are applied to remove intrusive animals and prevent future use of your building or home by wildlife. AWES technicians identify how an animal is getting in and seal points of entry without trapping the animal inside. The solution motivates the animal to leave the property and reduces the likelihood of other animals getting in.

While some wildlife appear small and harmless, it is important to remember there are many dangers associated with wild animals. From diseases and parasites to painful bites, a wildlife encounter can become a serious health risk. To protect yourself and your family, call a trained professional to inspect all wildlife issues.
