Wildlife Problems in Omaha, NE 

Omaha, Nebraska, is in the heart of the great plains. This area contains large populations of squirrels, mice, rats, raccoons, bats, and opossums. These pests can cause extensive structural damage, wreak havoc in garbage areas, and spread diseases. 

A climate with extreme hot and cold temperatures makes Omaha, NE, susceptible to storms, tornadoes, and other severe weather throughout the year. Such conditions often drive wildlife like raccoons, bats, and squirrels indoors. Once inside, the pests create issues for residents. 

Bat Removal 

Although bats contribute to the ecosystem, they can also become a nuisance to your Omaha home or business. Bat colonies are noisy and can create unpleasant odors or droppings. Although bats are generally timid, they can become aggressive when threatened. Bats also carry diseases.

Inspection: Our wildlife specialists search the premises for signs of bat invasion, such as small openings, strong ammonia scent, guano, or rub marks.

Removal: The most effective method for removing bats from your home is using a bat valve combined with an exclusion. The bats fly out, but they can’t get back in.

Repairs: Although bats can make small holes, they typically do not cause massive damage. Restoration typically includes cleanup and disinfection.

Raccoon Removal 

Raccoons are notorious for invading crawl spaces and attics to make their dens. With powerful jaws, legs, and hands, they can rip through roofing material such as vents and soffits or dig holes around the base of the house. Raccoons are highly aggressive, so it is best to leave removal to the professionals.

Inspection: Although raccoons are nocturnal, they also leave big messes to be found during the day. We inspect your house to find large openings in the roof and attic where they can get through. We also look for raccoon droppings and dens.

Removal: The most effective way to remove raccoons is to isolate and trap them. Once we trap the raccoon, we relocate them to their natural habitat.

Repairs: Raccoons can do extensive damage to your house. Our team is prepared to restore your walls, roofing, and crawl space. We also perform a full cleanup that includes disinfecting the area.

Rat and Mice Pest Control

Rats and mice are more than irritating pests. They carry various diseases and cause extensive property damage in just about any area in your home or business. Worst of all, these rodents can multiply quickly. You may have a large population in your house before you discover there’s a problem.

Inspection: We identify all traces of rat and mouse infestation, including rodent droppings, gnaw marks, odors, and nests. We also look for holes in the walls and flooring.

Removal: We use different types of traps and bait to lure and exclude the mice in the affected areas. We then remove all animals from the property.

Repairs: Repairs can range from cleanup and disinfection to structural repairs. Most repairs are easy since rodents make smaller holes and gnaw marks.

Squirrel Removal

Squirrels are excellent climbers, which gives them easy access to roofs. They’re also capable of enlarging a hole to climb through by chewing. Squirrels can cause significant damage to homes in the form of shredded insulation and electrical wiring, which can cause house fires. 

Squirrels have powerful legs, razor-like teeth, and sharp toenails, which give them easy access to food. They can cause enormous damage to your house by chewing through roof decking or peeling back your roof shingles. They also drop debris from trees. Furthermore, squirrels can transmit diseases such as Lyme disease, which you can contract without contacting the squirrel.

Inspection: Our team inspects your house looking for signs of squirrel activity such as openings in your house, droppings, or nesting debris. We may find gnaw marks on the roof or crawl space.

Trapping & Removal: Squirrels can be difficult to catch due to their agility. However, we can outsmart squirrels by using excluders, live traps, or deterrents that keep them away.

Repairs: If we discover damage caused by squirrels, we can repair the damage on-site. Our repair service includes full decontamination, nest cleanup and removal, and structural repairs.

Opossum Removal

Opossums in Nebraska are nocturnal, adaptable, solitary animals that wander mostly in the woods in both suburban and rural habitats. Like other animals in the area, they forage food in homes and businesses, decks, and woodpiles. You can also find them in sheds, crawl spaces, and decks. Although opossums do not cause major health concerns, they can carry ticks, fleas, rabies, and Rock Mountain Spotted Fever.

Inspection: An opossum inspection begins with looking for a nest made of twigs, scraps, and other materials. Other signs include tracks, droppings, and noises. We may also look for signs of foraging in your garden.

Removal: Our main technique for removing opossums is by humanely live-trapping them. We bait the cage trap with fruits, vegetables, or canned cat food. From there, we relocate the opossum.

Repairs: To eliminate further invasion, we seal all entrances, including areas around the garage, attic, windows, and vents. We also repair any damage.
