As the third-largest inland area in the nation, it’s no wonder Oklahoma City has so much wildlife. We have beloved animals, like the Bison, the scissor-tailed flycatcher, European honeybee, and the North American bullfrog. We also have wildlife considered nuisances. They may look cute but can damage your home and property.  The most common around Oklahoma City include squirrels, rodents, bats, raccoons, opossums, skunks, and snakes.

The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife has established rules on how to capture and remove nuisance wildlife. Because you, the property owner, are solely responsible for solving your nuisance wildlife problem, you may want to call Critter Control.

Critter Control Process

How Critter Control humane and safely gets rid of nuisance wildlife from your home and property.
STEP 1

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.
STEP 2

Removal

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.
STEP 3

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.

Squirrel Removal

In Oklahoma, we have gray, fox, ground, and flying squirrels active in every season. They love to scurry along power lines and the roof of your home, then scavenge on the ground. Squirrels constantly collect items to build nests, usually in your attic or under eaves.

Squirrels chew on power lines, wires, walls, and insulation. They dig holes in your yard and damage everything from roof shingles to garden crops. To get rid of squirrels, it may be best to call professionals who have the permits and equipment.

We can help. Here's how:

Inspection

Inspection

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 & Removal

Trapping & Removal

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.
Repairs

Repairs

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

Big and little brown, Mexican free-tailed, evening, and silver-haired bats hang out in attics throughout Oklahoma City. If bats make your home their home, you are at risk of exposure to their toxic bat droppings, which become a breeding ground for fungus that can harm humans. It’s important to call professionals to assist with your removal and cleanup.
Inspection

Inspection

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).

Bat 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.
Repairs

Repairs

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.

Raccoon Removal

When you see their cute faces with natural masks, you don’t think about your attic walls stained with feces and urine or the torn vents and gnawed beams. But you should. Raccoons can do a lot of damage with their strong hands and feet, claws, and lack of care for your property.

Raccoons carry diseases that are present in their feces. They use any materials they find to build nests, including your drywall, insulation, or treasured family photos left out in the open in the attic.

We can help. Here's how:

Inspection

Inspection

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 & Removal

Trapping & Removal

Live trapping, or one-way doors are the most effective and humane way to remove raccoons. 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.
Repairs

Repairs

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.

Rat Removal

Where there is one, there are more. Whether you see the local Norway rat, roof rat, or the house mouse, call us. Many homeowners try to DIY rodent removal but calling the experts is still a good idea because rats and mice multiply at high rates and can fit through holes the size of a pen. Plus, rodent removal can be gross. We have protective gear to keep everyone safe.
