The presence of wildlife around your place of residence or property is usually beneficial, but it can sometimes be a nuisance. Coyotes may prey on your dogs; rodents may try to enter your home, moles may ruin your yard, and birds may use your home for nesting.

Common Wildlife Pests
Moles are a species that can take a long time to eradicate or reduce in population. Some jobs are easy and straightforward, while others take much time and patience. Typically a mole job is a 7- day initial treatment with follow-up services. These extend for a few months to ensure extermination or managed control.
Bats are a species that can only be excluded from a structure. Trapping bats is tremendously difficult because three months out of the year it is illegal to disturb them. When dealing with bats, we first find their entry points, usually many of them, and add a special gate for them to leave but not return. Once all bats have left the structure, we then exclude the structure which is a very meticulous process because bats can squeeze between ¼-inch gaps and are typically around the roof line. These gaps and holes are sealed off and guaranteed from re-entry for one year.
We build and sell bat boxes. We will install them on your property and offer programs that are specifically designed to attract bats over a 3- year period.
Mice and Rats
Mice and rats are often handled as a program associated with pest control or other services. We use a baiting system to control mice and rat populations. All baits are professional grade and are housed in tamper-proof boxes. These are nonsecondary killers, meaning that your cat or dog can't eat a dead mouse and be poisoned by it. Exclusions are usually necessary after a period of time to help seal the structure from future entry. Unfortunately, in some cases, a baiting system will always have to be in effect to fully control some populations.
Every job for wildlife treatment is different every time. Every job is customized to the type of animal and the needs of the client. Treatment can range from as little as one week or as long as several months. There are lots of animals that are state and federally protected or are on the endangered species list, so they can't be dealt with normally or at certain times of the year. Applied jobs are different, but any exclusion work comes with a one-year guarantee. We also offer exclusion packages for buildings that are often invaded or that have many large openings or gaps in the structure. These packages are a large upfront cost with a yearly belated checkup fee to inspect the work and fix any problems.
Wildlife treatment is accomplished only with a full inspection and in some cases a charged inspection. If the problem is not obvious and takes some time to find, a charge is applied.
We usually handle animals using a live trap method, but sometimes live trapping is not an option. If baby animals are involved, we hand the infants over to the Bi-State Wildlife Hotline, to whom we also ask the customer to donate as we will donate to their cause as well. We also offer wildlife consulting in large-scale scenarios (e.g. deer destruction, coyote problems, etc.).
