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.
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.

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.
