WE CAN HELP YOU GET RID OF NUISANCE WILDLIFE PROBLEMS
Critter Control specializes in wildlife pest control. After a thorough home inspection, we create a custom wildlife control strategy to humanely remove the nuisance animal from your home and ensure the animal cannot return.
Wildlife Inspections in Kansas City
To identify potential nuisance wildlife, The Wildlife Service Technician asks these three questions:
- What is the nature of the problem?
- How can this be solved?
- How to prevent it in the future?
The technician observes the natural environment to ascertain potential species and investigates your property for signs of wildlife. Typical signs of wildlife include entry sites, animal droppings and urine, foul odors, nests or dens, marks like tracks, claw or smudge.
During an inspection, the technician will determine the severity of the problem, identify the species (if possible) develop a custom strategy to your property to remove the animal, and identify solutions to prevent the issue.
Wildlife Trapping and Removal
Before you can protect your home, the animal must be removed. Wildlife sealed in your home creates another host of problems, and a mother separated from her children will do everything in her power to reunite with her babies.
Based on the inspection, the Wildlife Service Technician will deploy a humane, environmentally safe plan to remove the animal from your property.
Preventing Future Wildlife Issues
Wildlife exclusion services provide a safe and effective way to control wildlife. When done professionally, wildlife exclusion provides immediate and long-term protection. The barriers naturally are chemical free so it is safe to people, animals and the environment.
Animals are creative and resourceful. After removal, an animal might attempt to regain entry to your home. Exclusion techniques should be monitored and occasionally updated.
Typical Wildlife Issues in Kansas City
Residents of the Kansas City Metro area regularly deal with nuisance wildlife. This is because extreme Kansas weather often drives pests into residential areas. Providing plenty of food and shelter, neighborhoods are ideal for coyotes and raccoons.
It is not unusual for Kansas City Metro residents to discover raccoons in their trash. The pests eat anything they can find, including garbage, vegetables, and insects. Their presence can result in trampled gardens or holes in back yards.
Raccoons make their way in homes to raise young and escape the cold. Attics, garages, and chimneys are popular nesting spots. Once inside, they damage homes while transmitting diseases and parasites like raccoon roundworm.
Rat and Mice Pest Control
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. To effectively get rid of rats you need to control the population. Female rats can have six litters in one year (mice can have up to 35 babies in one year). The wildlife technician will determine the best type of trap, placement of trap, and the best bait to use.
Common in residential areas, squirrels are often found in homes. Squirrels are active during the day so you might hear squealing, running, or gnawing early in the morning. Squirrels teeth never stop growing so they constantly gnaw and chew damaging attic insulation, fraying electrical wire, and destroying house structures.
Bats will enter attics to roost in large groups. As a protect species, special consideration must be made for bat control in Kansas.
Spotting a coyote is becoming common even in Kansas urban areas. Outdoor food sources and the loss of fear toward humans are the main reasons people see these pests.
Coyotes rely on garbage, gardens, and small mammals in yards for meals. This could mean attacks on pets or people.
Those who feed coyotes increase the risk of hostile behavior because the pests learn to associate people with food. When wild animals lose their shyness, they are more likely to become dangerous.
