Animal Abatement Specialists has been to my home in the past to remove an opossum. When they did come out the opossum was no where to be seen but told me of a rat Infestation. They did however place a cage to catch the opossum if it did return. They then preceded to completely seal off all entrances for the rats while having an exit way for rats to exit but not return. This sealing off of all the entrances took a full day. To complete this job took a number of visits to make sure the rats had left. They were very thorough. Recently, I thought that the rats had returned after over one year. They came out to my home and checked everywhere and secured the area around Garage door that we had removed. I would definitely recommend Animal Abatement Specialists because of their thoroughness in taking care of any animal problem. - Connie E.

Had a dead deer in the yard that needed to be removed. Checked around for quotes... the price from AAS was VERY reasonable. They said they could come out within an hour and a half... and showed up AHEAD of that. They were really personable and conscientious, got the job done quickly and with no headache, and took the time to explain how to speed up dissipation of the remaining smell in the soil. All in all, an excellent experience... something that seems all too rare these days!

Thanks so much!

On the Saturday afternoon after the 4th of July, we heard a lot of squawking from our crawl space. Even though I knew not many companies would be open the Saturday after a Holiday, I put in some calls to abatement companies and hoped I would get some callbacks on Monday.
To my surprise Animal Abatement Specialists called back a short time later and a short time after that, was onsite evaluating the issue. We walked the property and it became apparent we would need access to a neighboring property to rectify the issue. I secured access on Sunday, they set the trap Monday, and he caught one critter on Tuesday and the remaining three critters on Wednesday. They sealed the access points and just like that the job was completed, literally before some other companies even called me back!
They are easy to talk to and took time to answer my questions and address my concerns. Their pricing seems very reasonable. I would not hesitate to use them again. Thanks!

We had a mother raccoon and her babies move into our crawl space. I called Animal Abatement Specialist and got them on the first try (probably just luck, but I never had to leave a voicemail). The tech was awesome from start to finish. They truly are expert and willing to share knowledge.
Took about three days for the family to be rounded up and released in a humane manner. During that time they came out a few more times to assess the situation and make adjustments to the trapping strategy.
Money well spent. Would be happy to hire them again!

Pest Control doesn't deal with nuisance wildlife, as I found out living in the East Hills .I have encountered snakes,OMG!!!! Skunks in the middle of the night(yuck), so as I called around there is few companies in the Bay Area that specialize in this critters.Thank You ANIMAL ABATEMENT SPECIALISTS for attending the situation promptly.
M.D. San Jose, CA They were prompt, pleasant, and informed. Captured our animal guest (raccoon) within 24 hours, ... highly recommended!

Called in the morning and the tech was here, with a helper, in the afternoon. We smelled a dead animal and he confirmed the presence of rats in our attic crawl space and on the roof, though the dead rat was not discoverable. They inspected the entire house inside and out, located the entry points, and sealed all but one. The one entry point he didn't seal, he installed and "exit only" door. He was responsive, knowledgeable and polite. Couldn't be happier with his service.

How nice was it to come home from work and not smell the stench of death looming in the house? Oh let me count the ways....
First off, we had a dead cat that decided to die under our house. Not close to the access area either.... all of the length of the house 50 feet away. Good lord.
This was a feral cat that we had befriended over the last 3 years and actually got him pretty tame. A month ago he showed up with a horrible paw laceration, then a week later, two on his neck. It was downhill from there, as we watched our Volunteer Friend slowly take a turn for the worse and started basically dying.
Did he choose to take his last breath in the nice, soft little bed we had for him right outside our sliding glass door, where he spent the last month, obviously feeling like crap? Nope, under the house he went, as animals tend to do when they know it's their time.
ANYWAY, my husband called Animal Abatement Specialists in the morning, and when I texted him "did you call the guy yet?" he said "yes! and he'll be out in about 3 hours!".
Yanno, they say "it's the little things" that count, and boy did it. I was SO excited that I almost shrieked with joy at work. But contained myself and went on with my day at my Very Stuffy Professional Establishment (i.e., zzzZZzzZzzz).
When I got home, They had already come and gone, and collected the decaying, maggot infested carcass from under the house with nary a hitch!
If I could offer up payment AND MY FIRST BORN, I would have, but my first born is pretty cool, so not this time.
Just want to say thanks from the bottom of my heart, and praise the sweet lord baby Jayzus for AAS and their super quick and FANTASTIC company and service. WORTH EVERY FREAKING PENNY AND THEN SOME.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!
Julia W., wife of Mike W... who will be forever in your debt for your lightning quick service and expertise!
Our backyard was invaded by raccoons and skunks after we'd been away on vacation. We didn't want this service, but really appreciated Animal Abatement Specialists honest, prompt service. Relieved to have our backyard back for people. If you need this work done, the'll do the work quickly and thoroughly.

They were very professional, quick to respond, high tech in communication, and didn't try to up sell anything. They gave a clear idea of his arrival time, explained what is likely to happen over the next day or so, and were easy to work with. The tech was even enjoyable to chat with. I bet he has some interesting stories to tell...I just didn't have a chance to ask. :).
I have used Animal Abatement Specialists for over two years. I have had a severe Raccoon problem. There is no one out there that is better. They has a very difficult job and the service level is second to none.

They came out several times to place fresh bait. When the critter finally went into the trap, they came out Sunday night to take it away. They were always pleasant and polite.
Very impressed with the tech. We had some weird smell from under our deck and called them up. They showed up in few hours the same day (saturday).We assumed it was a rat but it turned out to be a possum. The tech was highly professional in how he retrieved the dead animal and how he disposed it. There was absolutely no damage to the deck and the price was very reasonable.
Refused the gig.
He insisted that he would need to put his ladder on the aluminum gutter and when I asked that he be careful not to damage the gutter with his heavy ladder, he said it wouldn't be worth the risk and did not want the job.
I appreciate the honesty (I really did) A business is in the business of solving problems (like critters in the attic) shouldn't be causing other problems like damage to roof tiles or gutters.
Two stars since he was honest. I actually felt better that he didn't take the job.
Comment from Animal Abatement Specialists
6/17/2014 Thanks Mike, I appreciate your honesty as well. I always listen to my clients because they know their situation and circumstances best. I've done thousands of these and approach confidently. So when I told you my approach and you said I would bend the gutter and break the tiles i figured you knew something about the materials I didn't. I thoughtfully considered what you said and reluctantly took your word for it. As I said that day, if one of those happened it would have cost more to fix than the paltry sum I quoted for the work. Even though I really wanted the job, there was no wiggle room.
We had a family of raccoons living in and around our property. We have a large beautiful backyard with a pool, fish pond and hot tub. I was finding raccoon skat near the pool and actually saw racoons on top of our hot tub cover. We heard about Animal Abatement Specialists through friends who were very happy. The owner came and looked around our property to survey the situation. He was very careful when he climbed our roof to look for attic infiltration. My children were very concerned about what he did and how he did it. He was very kind to them. He ended up putting a humane trap near our hot tub and each morning I would look outside. After three days there was a raccoon in the trap. Then over the next 4 days we trapped 3 more. Each time he would come out, gently remove the raccoon from the trap, and then remove it from our property. My wife and children were very happy with the way in which everything was done.
His price seemed very good. We did not get other estimates because of our friends' high praise so I don't know how they compare price wise. I just know we were very happy with the excellent service. We have since recommended him to other friends who need animals removed.
