See what our customers have to say about our services

Tom, Matt, and Victor have been a relief to work with through our multiple colony bat infestation. They have answered my panicked calls and texts at all hours and performed after-hours visits to remove bats. They have been professional, patient, and kind during the bat removal process. Plus they always let me grab a picture. 10/10 would recommend.

Tom and his staff were very smart and hard working on my project his knowledge of the rodents removed was impressive they got the job done fast and did great at it i would use them again and refer them to anyone.

Bear Blakley

Tom and the team at San Juan Wildlife Services are true problem solvers! They were able to remove the bats from the upper rafter of the house, plug all the potential entry points, and mitigate all roosting activity. No more bat guano!! Very reasonably priced vis-a-vis completion—-about 1/3 of the cost! Anyone who has a bat challenge should check them out!

Clay Kiefaber

This was one of the most professional and knowledgeable businesses I have done business with in Durango! I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needed help with wildlife problems!

Kellie Atwood

The owner of San Juan Wildlife services, and his very skilled and well equipped crew did a fantastic bat removal project at our 30 year old cabin in southern Colorado. They protected the bats during removal, sealed entry holes/cracks, and verified reentry blocking with video cameras.Tom and his crew are reliable, honest and skilled at bat removal and a pleasure to deal with.

Allen Valentine

Fast, efficient, and courteous Service! We were very pleased with San Juan Wildlife Services. They removed our Bats, and sealed up our cabin! They came promptly to survey our property, gave us a detailed description of bats’ behavior, how they get in, and what San Juan Wildlife does to ensure none get back in. We appreciated the promptness and the hard work of Tom and his crews. Plus, it was reasonably priced. Hats off!!!!!

Tom, I wanted you to know how happy we are with your services. Matt was good to work with and took time to explain procedures. Will call in the spring for more assistance with animal control. Thank you!


Our subdivision hired Tom & his company last year to get control over our gopher problem in our common area. We also hired him personally to help us in our backyard, which the gophers had taken over. This year is a whole different story and we are so grateful to San Juan Wildlife for really getting a handle on the problem. We would highly recommend them and their team. Thank you!

Jeff and Laura Branson

I just recently used Tom and Jesse’s services to get rid of pocket gophers that were threatening to destroy a recently landscaped area. I called Tom to schedule an appointment.  He was very polite and asked pertinent questions about our situation.  We were scheduled quickly and Jesse showed up on time to address our gopher infestation.  Jesse is a great representative for Tom’s company.  He was polite, efficient and took the time to educate me about the process.  I strongly recommend them!!

Chris Bauer

We had a bat issue in our home, and Tom with San Juan Wildlife Services was outstanding in solving the problem efficiently and very quickly. He is very knowledgeable regarding all issues pertaining to bats, and was great to work with, very flexible and just great. Me and my husband highly recommend this company and service. He also came back months later to do some monitoring at no cost.

Liliana Argento


Finding out I had bats living in my ceiling was a bit of a stressful situation. They started getting in the house! From my very first phone call with Tom and threw the entire situation, Tom went out of his way to make sure I could have them removed. There is so much more to having a colony of bats than you would think and the San Juan Wildlife crew is very knowledgeable. I couldn’t have taken care of this situation if Tom wasn’t so willing to work with me. And you couldn’t ask for a nicer group of guys to work with. If you have a bat problem call San Juan Wildlife services.

Jan Lewis

I had a rodent problem that I thought for sure there was no way to solve without going the chemical route. Tom was able to help me totally solve the problem! I am so grateful for his hard work, knowledge and willingness to hang in there with a positive attitude on the most difficult of challenges. I highly recommend Tom for his services!

Kim Grant

Tom Hayes was the upmost of professional, humane, expedient, and reasonably priced. We were amazed at how quickly Tom responded to our request to eradicate skunks from under a shed on our property. Since the shed is close to our house, we were incredibly concerned about how the trapping would go. Tom has a gift in working with animals. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone with a critter issue.


Tom Hayes, of San Juan Wildlife Services, recently came to eradicate moles on my property. I immediately knew by my cat’s habits that Tom’s first attempt went a long way toward changing things around here!

My cat completely stopped his constant daily hunt by the mole hills the day after Tom’s work. My cat now spends his time on birds around the house and mice at the bottom of a far field. I must add that rarely have I met a service provider more kind, thoughtful, flexible and willing to help as Tom. We met at The Home and Ranch Show and he followed up in a timely, professional fashion.

Robin Wiles

Tom Hayes was fantastic to work with and I would recommend him to anyone for animal control in the Four Corners. Thanks Tom!

“This is a good company for serving any of the problems you might have. Call Tom Hayes, he has the knowledge and does a great job. Highly recommend him.”

Mary Bates

It was perfect timing when I received a postcard in the mail from Tom Hayes advertising his business for removing nuisance wildlife. I had just discovered a problem in my basement of mice chewing through some wires. I called Tom and he promptly came out and assessed the situation and got to work. He is thorough, efficient, honest, knowledgeable, professional and extremely friendly. I highly recommend him.


I contacted Tom at San Juan Wildlife for a mouse problem I was having in my home. He is easy to reach and came out promptly to assess the problem.  There were multiple large open areas and nesting under the home.   He did a thorough job of repairing/sealing them and deterring future problems and, most importantly, I have not had a problem since!


He was the best thing I ever ran across, he immediately responded and came out the same day. My neighbors had moles that came into my yard, I tried to work with my neighbors, but they wouldn’t work with me. Tom called them and took care of the whole problem. He is fantastic!

Jane W.

Thank you for coming out so soon and helping us with our Vole problem. I think there’s one spot where we are having a reoccurrence but for the most part things seem a lot better, looking forward to calling u back in the Spring. Have a great Winter Sir ….


Tom was fantastic! We had a nuisance raccoon that needed a little extra incentive and Tom was great. He was fast and very professional. He also checked in with us regularly. I would recommend San Juan Wildlife Services. It is refreshing to deal with someone of integrity.


Tom saved the day, and the rest of the chickens, when I found the raccoon in the hen house. Thanks, Tom, for responding so quickly on a Sunday morning!
