The Denver metropolitan area is home to almost three million people. With 200 parks within the city and national forests to the west, which have plenty of protected natural habitat, Denver is also home to a wide variety of wildlife, including raccoons, squirrels, bats, and beavers, to name a few. As a result, area residents and business owners should not be surprised to find an unwanted visitor on or within their property that requires the expertise of a Critter Control wildlife technician. Our Denver team is well-prepared to handle common wildlife problems, including:

Critter Control Wildlife Removal Process

Critter Control is here for you every step of the way in the wildlife removal process. From inspection to removal—and even exclusion and repair—we have the services you need to get rid of raccoons, rodents, and other nuisances fast. First, we identify the animal on the property, then use humane methods to remove the animal and secure weak points where more could enter. If damage has been done, we can make those repairs for a complete restoration. Contact a Critter Control office near you today.
STEP 1

Wildlife Inspection

During the inspection we try to ascertain how many animals there are, where they are located, and how they got in. Based on what you have seen, heard and smelled, we start the inspection where you have noticed signs of animal activity. Evidence of animals inside your home include nests, dens, feces, and animal tracks. We investigate the exterior of your home looking for possible entry points, any evidence of animal damage, tracks, fur, animal waste, or rub marks.
STEP 2

Removal

We use several methods to humanely remove the animal from your home. Depending on the species, the number of animals, and the condition of your property, we develop a custom wildlife removal plan. Humane wildlife removal strategies include animal traps, one-way doors, and repellents. Once we guarantee all animals are gone, we implement exclusion techniques. Exclusion techniques provide a safe, long-term solution to nuisance wildlife in your home. We create barriers to prevent animals from getting to resources. We only apply exclusions once we are sure all animals are gone from your home.
STEP 3

Exclusion and Repair

Wildlife will damage your home. Exclusion techniques repair any damage the animal causes getting into your home. Inside your home, animals build nests and dens out of readily available material. They will create runs through the insulation. Rodents will gnaw on anything including electrical wires and pipes. Animals can also spread diseases. We apply sanitation agents to clean up feces and urine. Mammals can host pests like fleas, ticks, and mites. Ectoparasite treatments exterminate those pests so you don’t become their next host.

Raccoon Removal

Like many small and large cities in the Rocky Mountains, Denver is home to plenty of raccoons. These animals are known to take up residence anywhere that offers a steady food supply, usually near homes and businesses with unsecured trash cans. Once one or more raccoons discover a reliable food source, chances are the animals will stick around looking for more.

Inspection

Inspection

During the inspection, we determine the severity of the raccoon infestation. We look for physical evidence like footprints in or around the home, stains from raccoon feces and urine. On the exterior of the house, we look for damage like scratches on boards, broken vents and screens, ripped apart shingles, destroyed soffits, and every possible entry point.

Trapping & Removal

Trapping & Removal

Live trapping, or one-way doors are the most effective and humane way to remove raccoons. The choice of device is largely dependent on the season and location of the raccoons on your property. Direct capture is not commonly used because raccoons are a rabies vector species. If we must trap, we place traps strategically to safely catch the raccoons and we check traps frequently, based on state laws.
Repairs

Repairs

We provide a wide range of repair and restoration services. We can repair raccoon damage like broken screens on vents and chimneys and broken boards on decks and porches. It is essential to apply cleaning agents and ectoparasite treatments on areas inhabited by raccoons.

Rat and Mice Pest Control

Both homes and businesses throughout the Denver area may experience occasional visits from mice or rats. While unsettling, finding rodents, especially during the winter months, is not uncommon. However, it’s very important to address the problem as soon as possible as these animals may contaminate food, damage property, and spread disease.

During a rodent inspection, we thoroughly inspect your attic and provide a complete exterior home inspection. The most common signs of rodent activity are gnaw marks, feces, rub marks, nesting material, runs in insulation material, and small entry points.

Rodent Trapping

Rodent Trapping

A Critter Control wildlife specialist will create a strategic trapping plan to remove the rodents found in your home. Critter Control specialists may use snap traps and live traps to capture and remove mice and rats. 
Repairs

The best way to reduce the possibility of letting unwanted rodents into homes is to seal possible entrances. Exclusion methods include caulking cracks in foundations, capping chimneys, and installing mesh covers over vents and crawl space entrances. We also strongly recommend a maintenance service. Rodents have front teeth that continuously grow, which means they can gnaw a new way back into your home.

Squirrel Removal

Regardless of whether you’re in downtown Denver or one of the city’s suburbs, you’ll probably encounter more than a few squirrels. The most common species found in Denver backyards is the fox squirrel. This particular species can be found scurrying up and down trees and, for some residents, inside the home if there happens to be a hole in the roof with easy access to the indoors.

Inspection

Wildlife specialists look for signs such as chewing on, in, or around your home, small openings leading to the attic or the crawl space, droppings, and debris like nuts or nesting material. Beams, wires, pipes, and insulation may all show signs of damage from squirrels.

Trapping & Removal

Trapping & Removal

Live trapping or one-way doors are the most effective and humane ways to get rid of squirrels. One-way doors should never be used during birthing seasons (Spring & Fall), so our specialists will decide which is the best tool for the job. If we have to trap, we place traps strategically to safely catch the squirrels and check those according to state laws.
Repairs

We can restore your home or office by squirrel proofing all entry points after we have removed the offenders. We can also clean-up the nesting sites and remove any debris, food, feces and soiled insulation. 

Bat Removal

Colorado is home to 18 species of bats; while some of them migrate through the Denver area, others will roost within properties throughout our city. Bats are nocturnal animals; therefore, property owners may not even be aware that their attic or crawl space has become a home to one or more bats.

Inspection

Inspection

We perform a full interior and exterior inspection and search for signs such as rub marks, guano, a strong scent of ammonia, and small openings. The most common sign is the accumulation of guano (feces).

Bat Removal

Bat Removal

The most effective and humane way to remove bats is by utilizing a bat valve in conjunction with a full home exclusion. A bat valve allows for bats to exit your home but not re-enter. We follow all local ordinances for humane bat removal. We will never abandon flightless pups in your attic.
Repairs

Repairs

After removing the bat valves, we seal the entrance hole(s) so bats can no longer enter your home. If there is substantial guano in your attic, you should consider taking advantage of our attic remediation services to remove the soiled insulation and replace it.

Opossum Control

Opossums are prevalent in and around Macon, GA. If you see an opossum in your yard, it is best to ignore it. They usually move on from a location within a few days. In the meantime, they will probably eat pests like ticks or rodents. 

If you’ve got one in your home, you know it’s there. They are noisy animals. They scream, hiss, thump and bump. They can truly be annoying at any time during the day or night.Opossums will also leave feces and urine wherever they go. If you have a nuisance opossum in your house or udner a deck, call us to evict opossums early.
Inspection

Opossums can be found inside attics and basements or outside under decks and sheds. Common signs include unique paw prints and feces. Opossums are docile and usually easy to spot.

Trapping & Removal

Trapping & Removal

Opossums can be lured into cages for live capture. If it is maternity season, we follow all guidelines for removing mother and newborn opossums. We will seal entryways into the building to prevent opossums from reentering in the future. Opossums can be kept from getting under sheds and decks by installing fencing around the bottom edges and burying the fence underground.
Repairs

Repairs

Broken screens on chimney and roof vents are replaced with sturdier materials, and we properly seal all entry points, including crawlspaces. We clean and deodorize areas of opossum activity. Exclusion may include eliminating sources that attract bugs, like nighttime lighting, stagnant water, and livestock poop.

Prairie Dog Removal

Denver area residents are quite familiar with prairie dogs. If you own a home with backyard space, there’s a good chance you may eventually spot a burrow on your property. Prairie dog burrows cause plenty of damage, destroying lawns and creating tripping hazards.
 

Your Critter Control technician will take note of all prairie dog mounds in your yard. In fact, thirty-five mounds per acre is common. A crater- or dome-shaped mound often marks the entrance to a prairie dog hole.

Our technicians can safely navigate the terrain and remove prairie dog pests humanely and effectively. Please do not try to remove prairie dogs yourself as these animals may carry plague.

After removing the prairie dog from your property, your Critter Control specialist will help you determine the best way to keep prairie dogs away from your property. For example, setting up special fences or visual barriers may help to prevent problems with prairie dog tunnels naturally.

Beaver Control

Beavers shape their habitat to suit their needs, building dams that change the depth of rivers and streams. Dams can have a positive impact on the local ecosystem but cause problems for property owners. Beaver activity may lead to flooding, which can add up to costly damage.

Beavers hold a protected status as fur-bearing animals. Troublesome beavers causing damage to property may be eradicated outside of trapping season with the authorization of local wildlife agencies.

Several methods exist for controlling and removing beavers. In most states, it is illegal to destroy or disturb established beaver lodges and dams since the wetlands they create are vital to local ecosystems. In order to manage established beaver populations, drainage systems may be constructed with the assistance of conservation specialists to control the water level. Employing traps to remove problematic beavers is the most effective method. However, traps must be set by experts, such as Critter Control Beaver Specialists, at the underwater entrances of beaver lodges.
