We are a comprehensive nuisance wildlife company. Bottom line, if you have a wildlife problem, we can fix it. We are much more than you simple backyard trapper guy. Although trapping is one of the services we provide, we specialize in fixing wildlife problems and getting to the “why” instead of the “what” of the situation. Many of our clients see the animals as the problem. They tell us the raccoons are getting into their trash cans or eating their pet’s food that is left outside all day and night. We do not eat all day and night and our pets do not need to either. Simply feed your pets a specific times of day and they will become conditioned to eat when it is time to eat. Remove the food sources that are attracting the raccoons, problem solved. As for the garbage cans, we can simply make the garbage cans wildlife proof and again problem solved. In both instances the problem was not the raccoon, but our behavior that was causing the problem in the first place. This approach of thinking outside the box is what sets apart from other wildlife companies located in Colorado Springs. Trapping and removing is not always the right answer.

Colorado Springs CO Squirrel Removal and Squirrel Trapping
We humanly trap and exclude squirrels from homes and businesses. Squirrel removal is very important if one has chewed their way into your attic space. Female squirrels have two litters of babies per year and are looking for a safe dry place to birth and raise their young. Your attic offers exactly what they are looking for. Once a squirrel has taken up residence in your attic they will chew on electrical wires, support beams, contaminate your space with feces, urine, parasites such as; flies and ticks and bring in nuts and other debris. We are squirrel removal experts. We will trap and remove all the squirrels from your home or building and squirrel proof the home or building so they will not be able to get back in. We guarantee our work.
Squirrels come in many different species, In the South West we have the gray squirrel, red squirrel, flying squirrel and the fox squirrel. Flying squirrels are the smallest and the fox squirrel is the largest. The two methods that are used are either trapping or exclusion. We have the best warrantees in the industry when it comes to flying squirrels no other company can beat us on quality and longevity. We like to answer questions during inspections so you know exactly what is happening and why.
Squirrels are very interesting and cute creatures to watch. They are very active in this community and are not aggressive at all unless protecting their young. Thought fun to watch, they can get into our homes and business quite easily through a relatively small hole simply by making it bigger. Squirrels are excellent chewers, and in fact they must chew to file their teeth down or they will continue to grow until the squirrel can no longer feed. Squirrels love to chew on wood and once inside our attics, that is a scary sound indeed. Not only that, they often chew on electrical wiring insulation which can cause a serious fire hazard. Our attics provide a perfect habitat for squirrels to get out of the cold weather and once they enter, they must be excluded and or trapped and be removed. Once they have been removed we can then SQUIRREL PROOF YOUR HOME to ensure you do not have this problem again in the future.
Colorado Springs CO Raccoons in Attic & Chimneys
Raccoon removal from attics and chimneys falls is our line of expertise. Raccoons often use attic spaces for their dens in the spring, fall and winter months. While in the attic space they will cause a considerable amount of damage by shredding insulation, destroying duct work, chewing on wood, destroying sheet rock and contaminated the attic with feces and urine. Female raccoons often use this space to raise their pups. If you are hear noises in your attic don’t ignore the problem it will not go away.
Raccoons often find their way into chimneys and other tight places and become trapped with no way to get themselves out. Female raccoons often find that a chimney is a great place to deliver their babies. If this happens you will need professionals to remove them. US Animal Control is your local raccoon removal experts. Raccoons enter your attic via, attic fans, attic vents, rotten roof edges and holes in the soffet and facia (Roof Overhang). A raccoon on average needs 25 square inches to penetrate your attic. This is a dimension of 5 inches x 5 inches. If you suspect raccoons in the attic, listen to the way it walks. Most raccoons lumber across the attic, Squirrels run fast, and mice basically stay in the same area and make scratching noises. Raccoons usually give birth April 1 of each year, and in august for a late litter. Depending how north or south you live depends on the exact timing of the birthing season. Never attempt to remove raccoons at these times of the year as you might strand babies inside and mother outside, the best that can happen is mother raccoon will rip your shingles from your roof attempting to get to her babies. Never set traps at these times either. LEAVE IT UP TO A PROFESSIONAL Remember most state laws require killing a Raccoon if you trap and posses him.
