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.



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.


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 in Muncie

Raccoon intrusions put East Central Indiana residents in danger due to their ability to spread disease. Like bats, raccoons are known to carry the rabies virus. Raccoons also spread raccoon roundworm through their feces. The eggs of this parasite can infect people and pets, causing serious health issues.



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 and Removal

Raccoon Trapping

Live trapping is one of the most efficient ways to get rid of a raccoon. Depending on the situation, a one-way door or excluder valve can be installed. An excluder valve works by allowing the raccoon to leave but blocks its reentry. 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.



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.

Squirrel Removal in Muncie

Muncie is home to red, gray, and fox tree squirrels. All three of these squirrel species cause damage by digging in lawns, running along power lines, and forcing their way into homes. Once inside, a squirrel’s tendency to gnaw on electrical wiring and insulation can increase the risk of house fires.



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 and Removal

Squirrel Trapping

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.



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 in Muncie

Residents of Muncie encounter a variety of bats. Approximately a dozen individual species have been recorded throughout Indiana and are known to live in caves, tunnels, and trees. The more common types found around Muncie include the little brown bat, the big brown bat, and the Indiana bat. The pests can become problems when they roost in the attics and eaves of area homes.

Most bats can be of benefit to homeowners because they feed on nuisance insects like mosquitoes, beetles, and moths. But once indoors, bats are health hazards to humans and pets. Bats are known carriers of rabies and, can bring parasites, such as mites, fleas, and bed bugs into the home. Droppings can also contain a dangerous fungus that causes histoplasmosis.



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).

Trapping and 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.



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.

Mole Holes In My Yard

Moles and groundhogs also ruin landscaping for Indiana residents. Both pests’ tunnel into the ground to dig burrows for protection from predators and raising young. Mole hills, holes, and ridges in lawns are unsightly, while groundhog den entrances create dangerous tripping hazards.


Mole Inspections

During our inspection process, we look for the travel tunnels and the feeding areas. Travel tunnels are long, straight pathways, usually occurring along sidewalks, edging, home foundations, etc. Feeding areas are usually those areas that zig-zag in a close proximity.

Trapping and Removal

We use an exclusive process to treat your mole problem, so no unsightly traps need to remain in your yard. This process prevents the possible endangerment of pets and children that some mole traps may present. Call us and we can tell you more.
