Wildlife Removal in Las Vegas
Las Vegas attracts millions of tourists. Behind the bright lights the Vegas metropolitan area is home to over 1.5 million locals. The Nevada city also supports thousands of species of pests ranging from common pigeons, raccoons, ground squirrels, and mice to deer, snakes, rats, and rabbits.
There is something else increasing in number here, too, nuisance wildlife.
Nuisance Wildlife in Las Vegas
Las Vegas residents cohabitate with unwanted wildlife, including rodents, bats, Gila monsters, desert tortoises, raccoons, squirrels, snakes, rabbits, birds, and more. All critters can cause damage to your home and property. With many wildlife, even nuisance wildlife, being on a state or federal protected list, it's important to get help from the pros to remove the animal. We have a three-step inspection, removal, and repair process that works quickly and effectively and follows all state laws.
Bird Removal in Las Vegas
Birds, whether a woodpecker, pigeon, or sparrow, can be a nuisance. They like to make nests in any opening in your home, especially ones that lead to your attic space. They will use any materials to make a nest, including your insulation. Birds eat bugs, and therefore, they poop. Depending on the bird, poop can accumulate quickly. Birds can accidentally fly into spaces, like your walls, and get stuck. You may not know it until a foul smell appears.
We can help remove any bird.
Inspection: We thoroughly inspect your home and property for things that attract birds, like food and water sources. Also, we look for where birds are entering your home. We also inspect for damage caused by birds.
Removal: Birds are quite difficult to catch, so we depend on exclusion methods to direct them away from your home. We've found that the best method is getting rid of any spots they could use for landing, as well as eliminating potential nesting places.
Repair: Birds can cause damage to chimneys, eaves, gutters, and more. We examine every site of bird activity and fix anything necessary, including replacing insulation they use as nesting materials. We also clean and sanitize the areas. To keep birds away from your property, we use deterrents like bird netting, metal spikes and wire systems. Other methods include moving or removing bird feeders, and other food sources bird finds attractive. If you attract bugs, you will attract birds. When necessary, we can put up barriers around the edges of your home to prevent roosting.
Bat Removal in Las Vegas
Another flying animal that likes to move into your attic is the bat.
There are 23 species of bats native to Nevada. Four of these are sensitive status, and one has threatened status, the spotted bat. Like birds, they search for food, water, and shelter. If they can find them on your property, they will stay for a while.
Bats carry diseases, and they leave behind large amounts of guano or poop. Bat guano is toxic, and due to the uric acid, it can erode metal and wood. According to Nevada laws, bats cannot be hunted, trapped, or harassed at any time. This leaves exclusion methods as the way to get rid of bats from your home and property.
Inspection: Bats are predictable, making it easy for us to spot signs of bat activity in common locations. However, inspection for damages can be trickier. During our inspection, we will be looking for places to implement exclusion tools.
Removal: We remove bats using our custom-made bat valves. Bats fly through to the outside. The outer end of the valve is too small for the bats to fly back in. Once removed, we start the repair and exclusion process.
Repair: Repair work starts with cleaning bat guano and sanitizing the areas in which the bats lived. We then seal all holes that could let a bat back into your home. We properly screen chimneys and vents used as entry points. If you want bats gone forever, we help you prepare your environment to make it less attractive to bats. Turning off lights near your home at night and reducing areas where bugs thrive are examples.
Rats and Mice Pest Control in Las Vegas
The black rat, house mouse, desert woodrat, deer mouse, cotton rat, harvest mouse, grasshopper mouse, kangaroo mouse, and pocket mouse are some common rodents seen around Las Vegas. Rodents can squeeze through holes the size of a quarter, making it easy for them to enter your home. Rats and mice seek cozy places where they can access food, water, and shelter. They build nests where they have lots of babies.
Rodents travel along wires, making them sag. They gnaw on wiring, creating fire hazards. They sneak through your home and chew through food boxes in your pantry. The sooner you call us; we can remove them before you end up with an infestation.
Inspection: We seek and find every possible entry point for rats and mice, even the tiny ones. We know where to look for nests and identify the damage, like gnawed wood and wires needing repair.
Removal: Rats and mice are not a protected species in Vegas. We use trapping and exclusion methods to ensure rats and mice do not return. At Critter Control, we have traps that will capture all types of rodents.
Repair: We show up ready to repair wires gnawed on by rodents, replace insulation used for nests, and clean rodent feces and urine. Exclusion methods are used both inside and outside your home. Sealing all sized holes found in screens, walls, floors, vents, and cabinets. We clear debris, create proper food storage spaces and manage potential water sources to make your area less attractive to rodents.
Raccoon Removal in Las Vegas
Raccoons have no problem living among the residents of Las Vegas. They adapt well to changes and are very resourceful when it comes to scavenging for food. Just like in every other city, raccoons like to make your home their home. When they are not our roaming, tipping over garbage cans, and digging in trash bins, they are resting in your attic.
Raccoons are assertive, pushing their way into your home through broken screens, passageways under your home, or by climbing to the roof and entering through open vents or windows. They don't mind causing further damage to your home in the process. They will eat anything from dog food to leftovers in the trash. If they can smell it, they will try to get to it. They also search for sources of water nearby.
As they roam at night, they cover many areas, doing damage to the things like roof shingles, chimneys, insulation, wires, decks, and wood beams. We can help get rid of raccoons living in your home.
Inspection: We know precisely where raccoons like to nest, and we can identify signs like poop, pee, gnaw marks, and food trails. We can also recognize areas of damage caused by the raccoon.
Removal: Nevada requires that we live trap raccoons humanely and safely. We use our CritterSafe custom traps to remove them from your property and exclusion methods to keep them from returning.
Repair: Raccoons can cause a lot of damage to flooring, wiring, walls, decks, screens, and much more. We can fix all of these quickly. We also screen chimneys and vents and seal all openings used as an entry point into your home. Exclusion methods we use to keep raccoons out include properly storing pet foods and garbage, so they are not accessible to raccoons. We eliminate hiding places on your entire property and install barriers where needed. Since raccoons love birdseed, we help you take down bird feeders or move them further away from your home.
We can also add fencing to your garden and trees to deter raccoons.
You may be wondering how we can do all this in a cost-effective, professional way. The answer is our experts.
Finally, Las Vegas residents need to be on the lookout for snakes, specifically venomous species like the Great Basin rattlesnake and Mojave rattlesnake, as their bites can be fatal. These reptiles thrive in dense brush and hide under porches, rocks, and debris. Most shy away from contact with people. However, when threatened, they may bite in self-defense.
Snakes seek out places where food and shelter are readily available. Las Vegas area residents dealing with a rodent infestation may also discover snakes on the property. Both venomous and non-venomous snakes enter homes and garages looking for prey or a quiet place to escape the heat.
Nevada Skunk Control
Skunks dig cone-shaped holes in lawns looking for insects and access to backyard chicken coops to feed on poultry or eggs.
If a skunk feels threatened, it will try to deter those who get too close with a sticky, foul-smelling spray. The liquid is tough to wash away and can irritate the skin. In New Mexico, these pests are common rabies carriers. To avoid a skunk’s spray rely on professional handling and skunk trapping. Removing food supplies is one of the most effective ways to prevent a skunk from entering your property.
