Wildlife Problems in Salt Lake City, UT

Salt Lake City is the most populous city in Utah, making it a hot spot for a wide variety of wildlife. These are the most common wildlife problems in the area. 

Raccoon Control & Removal

Adaptable and clever, raccoons have no trouble thriving in Delaware. Attics and chimneys make ideal den sites for a gaze of raccoons.
Inspection- looking for footprints in or around home, large openings, raccoon poop
Trapping & Removal- Live trapping most effective and humane
Repairs- Seal all entry points. Restore attic insultation. 

Squirrel Control & Removal

Common in residential areas, squirrels are often found in homes. As overwintering pests, squirrels build nests in attics for protection from the elements.
Inspection- Gnaw marks on, in, or around your home. Small openings to attics or the crawl space. Droppings. Debris like nuts or nesting materials.
Trapping & Removal- Live trapping, deterrents, one-way doors.
Repairs- Exclusion services focus on repairing entry points. Removing debris, repairing nest sites, decontaminating droppings and urine.

Rodent Removal

Similar to other older East Coast regions, rodents like 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.
Inspection- Noises such as scurrying and rat or mouse droppings most prominent signs you have a rodent infestation
Trapping- Variety of traps available.
Repairs- caulking cracks, capping chimneys, installing mesh over vents.

Bat Control & Removal

Bats will enter attics to roost in large groups. As a protect species, special consideration must be made for bat control in Delaware.
Inspection- Small squeaking sounds. Piles of droppings in one corner of the house. Stains on walls and strong ammonia smell.
Trapping & Removing- Generally you can only remove a bat if its in the livable part of your home. Most likely one way doors will be employed once the bats offspring have reached maturity.
Repairs- sealing entry points. Disinfecting area under roost from accumulation of guano. 


Skunks are generally docile animals, but they can cause significant damage to property and are the most common carrier of rabies in the United States. They use their long claws to burrow under homes and businesses, and their toxic spray can damage property. Never approach a skunk without a professional.
