Common Wildlife Problems in Denver, CO
Raccoons Removal in Denver
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: Your Denver-based Critter Control wildlife specialist will inspect your property for the usual signs that raccoons are visiting—or already live on—your property and will take note of footprints in or around the home, large openings that offer access, and raccoon poop.
Removal: Live trapping is the best way to remove raccoons from your home. Please do not try to remove raccoons yourself. These animals can carry rabies and can transmit the disease not only to you but also to pets.
Repairs: In addition to suggesting ways to property seal your trash cans, your technician will seal up any points of entry that raccoons and other wildlife could use to visit your home. They will also apply sanitization and ectoparasite treatments. If raccoons are found in your attic, the technician will restore any damaged insulation.
Denver Tree 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: Our wildlife specialists will look for the typical signs of a squirrel problem, including gnaw marks, small openings into your attic or crawl space, droppings, and piles of debris such as nuts or nesting materials squirrels use to make themselves more comfortable.
Removal: Your Critter Control specialist will remove all squirrels using one of a few proven methods, including live trapping, one-way doors, and or a deterrent.
Repairs: Squirrels can leave behind quite a bit of damage. Our technician will remove all debris and nests, decontaminant the area, and ensure that all points of entry are sealed up to prevent future visitors.
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.
Inspection: Critter Control specialists will look for the telltale signs of a rodent infestation, including droppings and gnaw marks.
Removal: Once we determine the size of the rodent infestation, we will set up traps where necessary. We ask all our clients to be aware that it can take several days to get rid of your rodent problem. We will check our traps daily.
Repairs: If you’ve been having a rodent problem, chances are there are one or more entry points that your technician will need to seal up for you. In addition, we will make sure your property is thoroughly decontaminated to prevent disease.
Bat Removal from Homes
There are 18 types of bat in Colorado;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: Your Critter Control technician will look for stains on walls from bat feces, or guano, which will most likely be piled beneath the area where bats are roosting.
Removal: Never try to remove bats yourself. It may be tempting to grab a broom and sweep a bat off your wall; however, these animals may carry rabies. Therefore, leave bat removal to a professional wildlife technician who will most likely install a one-way door to ensure the bat or bats cannot return to your home.
Repairs: In addition to sealing up the entry point(s) inside your home, the technician will clean up the guano left behind and disinfect the area for you.
Prairie Dog Control
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.
Inspection: 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.
Removal: 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.
Repairs: 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 in Denver
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.
Concerns about Coyotes
Close to both nature and people, Denver gives a coyote access to food and shelter. The curious pests may move into yards to hunt for small animals like rats and rabbits. Coyote attacks on humans in Colorado are rare, but these predators may come into conflict with pets. More common issues with coyotes include scavenging behaviors, such as digging through trash. The pests may also eat from pet bowls or take produce from gardens if food is scarce.
