Raccoons can be found in all areas of Hamilton County. We all know these masked bandits can cause lots of sneaky trouble! They love to get their sticky fingers in your garbage and eat until their hearts are content. While they seem cute, these fluffy critters can spread dangerous diseases. You do not want them on your property or in your home or garage.
Inspection: There are many signs that a raccoon has entered your space, such as nesting, droppings and scattered trash.
Removal: When we have determined that a raccoon may be in your space, we come out and set specialized traps that will let us catch and remove it humanely.
Repairs: It is not uncommon for raccoons to leave damage in their wake, from chew and claw marks to holes in insulating. We can repair any damage that has been done.
Rat and Mice Removal
There are many problems these small pests can cause, and where there is one rodent, there are soon to be many. This is why it is important that you call a professional soon as you realize you notice signs of a rodent infestation.
Inspection: It is very easy for us to determine if there is a rodent problem. We can hear squeaking noises and locate shavings and droppings.
Removal: It is important for us to come and assess each individual rodent situation as no two are alike.
Repairs: We need to close all holes in order for the rodents to be kept away in the future. We also repair any chewing damage and clean away any droppings.
Squirrels are very common in this area of the country, often making their nests in safe, warm places like your gutters, attics and garages. This is especially true during cold winters! These damages can cause loss of function to your home. Squirrels look for lots of loose leaves and debris to make nests, which can cause lots of problems for your home.
Inspection: We come to your home and looks for specific signs like bite marks that are unique to squirrels
Removal: We come to your home to set up special one-way traps. These traps are humane and do not let the squirrel back out. We also have squirrel deterrents that help keep them away from your property in the future.
Repairs: A big part of squirrel prevention is cleaning up debris from your property. We also repair any structural damage the squirrel may have done to your home.
Indiana is home to bats that can sometimes wander in your home, causing a problem for the bats and you! Bats are very important to Indiana ecosystems, feeding on bugs and other insects. It is a health hazard to have bats in your home and very dangerous to your health to try to remove them yourself. This is because they are covered in guano, or poop.
Inspection: Bats are easy to spot because of the strong ammonia smell their droppings leave behind.
Removal: Bat removal requires setting up a special device called a bat valve that allows the bats to fly in one direction out of your home. This must be designed just for your home for accuracy of removal.
Repairs: We can decontaminate your home from the strong smell of the droppings and repair any damage done to your home by the bats from flying. We also patch up any areas that let the bat in your home in the first palace.
Skunks may look friendly, but if you see one in or around your home, it is important to contact a professional to remove it. Skunks have large claws and strong snouts and can do more damage than you think. You should also avoid trying to trap them yourself because they can carry harmful diseases that can even be fatal for your pets! Critter Control knows what to do with skunks so you stay spray- and bite-free.
Inspection: Skunks will enter your yard in search of food, or to make a nest or den for themselves. They like warm, dry areas or dark places near food sources.
Removal: At Critter Control, we have found the best way to remove a skunk is by humanely trapping and then removing them in the trap to be released in another location. It can be dangerous to remove a skunk from its den as it may bite or spray.
Repairs: When a skunk gets into your home, garage or garden shed, it can cause damage that may need repair. We can help you fix any damage from skunks on your property. We can also assist in cleaning any areas of your property that would attract skunks, such as large piles of wood, debris, or leaves.
