If you're hearing and seeing nuisance wildlife in and around your house, the damage may have already begun.
Most wildlife will take any opportunity to get food—sometimes crawling through your pet doors or knocking over your trash cans. They can turn aggressive especially when cornered or threatened.
Small wildlife will make their home in attics, underneath eaves in roofs, in chimneys and even within the walls. We do not recommend you try to remove wildlife animals from your property without knowledge and experience. A raccoon may have babies hidden in its nest, which an inexperienced trapper may overlook. When a mother raccoon is removed, the babies will die within the walls or attic of your home.
Trapping wildlife is a dangerous job if you have not been properly trained. There are many different approaches that can be taken when catching animals. If you're bitten, the animal should be regarded as rabid. When exposure occurs, it should always be reported to the local or state health department. Bites or scratches should be thoroughly washed immediately.
Our focus is not only on removing the animals from your home but making sure that the exclusion work we perform on the property such as light carpentry, vent screening or chimney capping, not only keeps the animals out permanently but also retains the beauty and value of your home.
Here are a few of the most common animals we catch. We also remove many others including beavers, ground hogs, armadillos, snakes and pigeons. If you're not sure what it is, give us a call. 417-850-3006
Raccoons are very easy to identify with their distinct markings but, it is very hard to catch
raccoons adult raccoons which can reach weights of 50 pounds or more. Raccoons can be
very mischievous making trapping very difficult. Raccoons have an opposable thumb which
allows them to gain access to structures as well as remove lids off garbage cans to get
to food source.
Raccoons are normally active in the later part of the day and need shelter in the daytime
in confined spaces such as crawl spaces, attics of homes and chimneys as well as trees
and many other areas that your property has to offer. Once a raccoon has set up their den
in your home, they are extremely hard to catch which creates and extremely nerve racking
nuisance. Some of the problems that this can cause are noises through out all hours of the day and night including, growling, scratching crawling around and young baby raccoons crying in addition to the destruction that they cause to your home such as repeated defecation in same areas causing damage to your drywall and insulation as well as the health risk of breathing in these toxins. Raccoons can transfer canine distemper as well as rabies to your family and pets.
Bats, large or small, that decide to take up residence on your property, can be
a problem and troublesome. Bats are some of the most beneficial mammals in
the world and they come in many varieties. The most common are the
Little Brown Bat and the Big Brown Bat. The Little Brown bat is the most
common type of bat colonies in homes around this area. These bats live in
large numbers. We have found that the numbers can range any where
from 25 to 800. These animals have to be handled very carefully. Exclusion
is the only way to deal with a bat colony problem. If you suspect you have bats
in your home, call us immediately. A large colony of bats will leave their mess of
filthy, stinky guano and illness-causing waste products. Bat feces or bat guano can
contain a host of diseases, fungi and bacteria that can make you and your family sick.
Skunks are removed on a daily basis. Grabbing a skunk by its tail or not allowing
it to lift its tail makes it difficult for them to spray us. Skunks do not have good depth
perception. Skunks often get stuck under homes and die, which means that we are
frequently hired to crawl underneath the house to remove dead skunk carcasses.
The most common way of removing skunks is by humane skunk trapping.
Our nuisance wildlife control experts place traps on the animals path, and
bait these traps with a special skunk lure formulated from sweet fruit extracts.
These trappers are skilled at locating the skunks den. When trapping skunks,
placing traps in front of their den is the most effective place to set a trap.
Unfortunately, our trappers occasionally get sprayed, its apart of the skunk
control and removal business and it stinks no matter how long you've been trapping!
Squirrels will cause damage to your property in many ways. Squirrels will chew through
just about anything including electrical wires to make their nest. Not only will they make
your property unsafe by creating a fire hazard, squirrels will pose a threat to
your health (and your sanity!) by bringing in messy nesting material and leaving
behind urine and feces to accumulate and harbor bacteria.
Our professionals use lots of effective techniques to remove these squirrels
permanently from your property. They'll find the entryways to your property
and can seal them off so the squirrels can't return. Since squirrels chew through
lots of different materials, our trappers will use steel meshing to keep these pesky
squirrels out. We'll also use one-way exclusion doors to prevent squirrels from entering
your property again. Our professionals have the training and tools to handle squirrel removal.
These are a few of the most common animals we catch. We also remove many others including beavers, ground hogs, armadillos, snakes and pigeons. If you're not sure what it is, give us a call. 417-850-3006
