Inspection & Wildlife Removal

Animal Proofing Your Home
Once the animal has safely been removed, it is important to prevent any future animal intruders. Habitat modifications and home exclusions are two of the most effective and humane methods to keep animals out of your home.

The problem with rats and mice is that once you’ve seen one, there are probably dozens lurking about in your home.
To effectively get rid of rats you need to control the population. Female rats can have six litters in one year. The wildlife technician will determine the best type of trap, placement of trap, and the best bait to use.
The standard trapping duration is normally 5-14 days. Rats leave pheromone trails that other rats can follow into your home. It is essential to repair entry points and reinforce potential entry points to keep rats out.
Squirrels can cause considerable damage to your home. Both gray squirrels and fox squirrels can be found in Oklahoma, but Oklahoma City residents are more likely to have fox squirrels in your attic.
Squirrels are active during the day so you might hear squealing, running, or gnawing early in the morning. Squirrels' teeth never stop growing so they constantly gnaw and chew damaging attic insulation, fraying electrical wire, and destroying house structures.
Squirrels can impact your quality of life. They are active from dawn to dusk. The most common sign of squirrels is the sound of scurrying early in the morning.
To effectively remove squirrels, the wildlife technician will employ a variety of tactics such as live trapping, one-way doors, deterrents, and direct capture.
Raccoons can wreak havoc trying to gain entry to your home and cause significant damage creating a den in your attic. They can cause a mess of garbage and destroy home gardens and birdfeeders. Because they are nocturnal, you’ll most likely hear a loud thumbing at night if you have an attic.
Live trapping is the most common removal technique and exclusion techniques include securing food sources and closing any entry points.
Armadillos present little danger to people. The greatest danger they pose is to your landscaping. Controlling the animal can protect your lawn and garden and the integrity of structures like decks and driveways on your property.
Repellents and scare tactics are ineffective against armadillos. Trapping an armadillo is not difficult but you cannot relocate an armadillo without permission from the landowner. Habitat modification and exclusions are extremely effective in removing armadillos from your lawn. Armadillos prefer loose or sandy soil. To protect your garden, water your garden beds in the morning. The soil will have dried out by mid-afternoon. Armadillos are nocturnal so the soil in your garden will no longer be attractive.
Big Brown Bat, Cave Myotis, Eastern Red Bat, Hoary Bat, Mexican Free-tail bat and the Tri-Colored bat all have ranges that include Oklahoma City County.
Bats in the attic, or elsewhere in your home, can be a particularly troublesome nuisance. Not only do they make a lot of noise, but their nests and droppings can negatively affect your health and the health of your family.
Bat guano is the surest sign you have bats and the greatest risk to your health. A large accumulation of guano can lead to structural issues and spread two fungal diseases.
Most bat species are protected. Some restrictions include not removing bats during the maternity period. Most pup development periods in Oklahoma are from May to July. The ideal time to bat proof your house is after July or before May. Once the young can survive on their own, the wildlife technician seals the entry points and installs a bat valve. Once the valve is installed, your house will be bat-free in 3-7 days.
Of the forty-five snakes native to Oklahoma, eight are venomous. But all snakes are beneficial to the environment. If you have a snake in your home, avoid killing it.
Generally, the most harm snakes inflict is scaring someone. If there’s a snake in your house, you need to call a professional. A snake is in your home for one reason- food.
If you have a snake problem, you likely have another wildlife pest problem. The wildlife technician will help remove the snake safely and help uncover any other wildlife pest infestations.
Moles create extensive underground tunnels only a few inches from the surface. The ridges of upheaved soil are one of the most recognizable signs of moles in your lawn.
Moles use their large paddle-like front paws to "swim" through the soil. Mole tunnels can damage lawns and uproot plants.
Moles can be kept away from garden plots by installing fencing buried at least a foot into the ground, as well. The use of mole traps is a valid control option but requires the knowledge and expertise of wildlife professionals.
Proximity to the Missouri River makes Kansas City an ideal habitat for the plains pocket gopher.
You probably won’t see a gopher or encounter one in your home. A gopher is identified by their burrow and a large mound of dirt that sits above the tunnel. Their preferred diet is pieces of plants accessible underground.
Gopher control is most effective during spring and fall when gophers are most active near the surface. Activity is usually indicated by fresh mounds of soil. Time, energy, and resources can be wasted by trying to control gophers in an unoccupied burrow. Baiting and trapping are the two most practical and efficient methods.
Gopher or Mole?
Gophers and moles both burrow destroying your lawn, uprooting your vegetables, and undermining structures.
Since both animals spend most of their time underground it can be difficult to distinguish which animal is in your yard.
Gophers tend to dig their tunnels deeper (five to eight inches deep) whereas moles dig only two to three inches down. Not surprisingly, mole tunnels do more damage.
Gopher and moles make different mounds. Moles look like mountains and are built directly over the tunnel. Gopher mounds have plugs to the side and the mounds appear more kidney-shaped.
Whether gophers or moles, both burrowing animals have similar control strategies.
