Bobcat Control, Trapping & Removal Services
We can rid you of Bobcat problems safely and efficiently
The most common wildcats in North America, bobcats get their name from their stubby, or bobbed, tails. Although they often live in both rural and suburban areas, they are rarely observed by people. This is largely because the pests are most active from dusk to dawn, when their eyesight is about six times better than humans’. While bobcats are shy and cautious around people, they can still cause property damage and threaten the safety of pets and livestock.

These medium-sized wildcats are around two to three times bigger than large house cats, weighing from 15 to 30 pounds and reaching about three feet in length. They are also distinguished from domestic cats by the tufts of fur on their cheeks and ears. Bobcats can be various shades of buff and brown with dark brown or black stripes and spots.
Bobcats are carnivores that prey on a variety of animals. Typical meals include mice, voles, rabbits, gophers, and even small deer. They may also eat insects, reptiles, birds, and animal carcasses if food is scarce. Hunting primarily by sight and sound, bobcats stalk their prey, waiting patiently until it’s within reach. When they take down animals too large to eat at once, the pests may cover their meals with leaves or snow and save it for later.
Distributed from coast to coast in the U.S., bobcats live in forests, swamps, farmlands, and arid areas with plenty of rocks and brush. They often use rock cliffs, outcroppings, ledges, hollow trees, or large brush piles for shelter and nesting sites.
