We know that squirrels seem cute and harmless, but in actuality, they can cause a lot of damage to your home. They love to build nests that clog gutters and chew holes where they don’t belong. Homeowners may discover squirrels and other rodents in their living spaces, along with damage caused by the pests' behavior and waste.
Both ground- and tree-dwelling varieties commonly damage property. Tree squirrels often break intoattics or build nests in gutters. Ground squirrels burrow in lawns and gardens, ruining tidy landscaping.
To effective remove squirrels, the wildlife technician will employ a variety of tactics such as live trapping, one-way doors, deterrents, and direct capture.
Inspection: Squirrels make very distinct gnaw marks that we know how to look for.
Removal: We use a one-way door type trap to help us remove squirrels in a humane way.
Repairs: We can repair damage done by squirrels. We also clear debris from nests to restore your home and property to their pre-squirrel condition
Rat and Mice Pest Control
Rats and mice are among the adaptable mammals and can inhabitat almost any environment. Rats and mice are typical pest animals in a home. Proximity to water and buildings with plenty of entry holes allow the pests to travel freely and breed rapidly. In homes, a mouse or rat may contaminate food with waste, spread disease, and destroy property.
Rodents are small but destructive, quickly multiplying and making more problems for you. It is important to call us as soon as you feel you may have a rodent problem.
Inspection: We can easily tell when rodents have inhabited your space as they leave behind chew marks, droppings and shavings.
Removal: Rodent removal is determined on a case-by-case basis. 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.
Repairs: Holes made by all types of rodents are typically easy to repair. With rodents, you want to block all places that would let them re-enter your home.
The dry, desert climate of Northern Arizona makes any neighborhood the ideal place for a raccoon. This nocturnal pest often scours trash cans and gardens for food and water. During mating season in Flagstaff, raccoons search out nesting sites to raise their young. These pests frequently dig under sheds or climb into chimneys and attic.
Inspection: We come directly to your home and property to looks for signs of raccoons which can include droppings and property damage.
Removal: We place traps that draw the raccoon in with food. The trap keeps them from going back out into your home or property.
Repairs: It is not uncommon for raccoons to leave damage to your property. We offer services to repair any structures that become damaged as a result of raccoons. We will come directly to you to assess the damage done by raccoons.
Bats in Arizona
Bats are an essential part of the ecosystem of northern Arizona. It is important to call us as soon as you realize you have a bat issue, as they can transmit many diseases that are bad for you, your family, and your pets.
Inspection: We come to you and look for bat droppings and the specific smell of ammonia that let us know bats are there.
Removal: A special bat valve lets bats fly out of your house but not back in. Each home needs its own specially designed bat valve, so we come out to your home to assess an individual plan of action.
Repairs: We remove the bat valve and repair any damage done by the bats. It is also very important to disinfect any bat droppings or guano after the bats have been removed.
Northern Arizona Snake Removal
Northern Arizona is home to a wide variety of snakes that can slither onto your land or in your home to cause a problem. Snakes usually like to hide out in dark places with lots of debris, such as under decks.
Inspection: We know just where to look for snakes. They love places such as lumber and leave piles and sides of houses and decks.
Removal: It is not wise to attempt to kill a snake yourself, as severed heads can still transmit venom. We find snakes, trap them, and relocate them.
Repairs: Snakes usually do not harm property but can cause trouble if they bite. Some are very dangerous as they are venomous. There is usually more clean-up involved in after snake removal care of your property.
Arizona Skunk Control
In recent years, skunks in Flagstaff, AZ, have been at the center of rabies outbreaks in urban and suburban areas. These pests are scavengers that eat carrion, including the carcasses of rabid bats. Once it contracts the virus, a skunk can spread rabies to other wildlife, pets, and even humans.
Flagstaff neighborhoods offer both food and shelter for these animals, bringing them in close proximity to homes and yards. Rabies spreads quickly when healthy and infected skunks den in the same areas or compete for resources.
To avoid a skunk’s spray rely on professional handling and skunk trapping. Removing food supplies is one of the most effective ways to prevent a skunk from entering your property.
Gopher Control in Arizona
While generally harmless to people, pocket gophers dig in Flagstaff and Prescott lawns to search for meals. These animals often eat plant roots as they burrow, harming trees and crops along the way. A pocket gopher may also create costly damage by chewing on sprinklers and plastic water lines.
Woodpeckers bring several issues to Verde Valley residents when they peck into homes and barns to nest. Their activity can cause damage to siding, trim, eaves, and sometimes roofs. The loud noise of a woodpecker drumming away during the early morning hours may also annoy Northern Arizona homeowners.
