If you have a problem with wildlife in your Ardmore home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Oklahoma wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Oklahoma and Ardmore, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Carter County Animal Services: (580) 223-7070
Wildlife X Team specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Oklahoma also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Wildlife X Team is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 580-319-4590 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife X Team is a full-service Ardmore wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Ardmore pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife X Team performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Ardmore wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Oklahoma to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know. Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Oklahoma law. We offer Ardmore raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife X Team. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Ardmore squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Ardmore exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Ardmore rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Oklahoma is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Ardmore pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Ardmore bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Ardmore trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Ardmore wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Wildlife X Team does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife X Team. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. Wildlife X Team also provides dead animal removal in Ardmore. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Ardmore snake removal - most of the snakes in Oklahoma are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Ardmore. And remember, we are a private business, not Carter County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (580) 223-7070. Carter County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Ardmore Wildlife Tip #1:
HOW TO GET RID OF RACCOONS WITHOUT KILLING THEM
Raccoons can be a problem all year around and with urbanization, spotting of raccoons in residential area has become more prevalent. The major risk that raccoons carry is of rabies which certainly is danger for your family members and pets. They usually feed into mess and trash and hence roundworms and fleas are uninvited guests to their body. If raccoons are infesting in your home then you need to deal with it! There are many toxic products available in the market to poison or kill them but if they are not your thing then this post will help you in knowing some of the home remedies to keep raccoons away and get rid of them without killing them. Home remedies are effective and non-toxic and this is the reason that they are preferred by residents who are not very comfortable in using toxic means.
Garlic & cucumber: your favourite taste maker and prime component in salad is disliked by these little creatures. So if you have some garden area then planting cucumbers along the fence can help in keeping raccoons away from your home. Also, crushed garlic mixed with chilli powder also serves as an irritant to them. You can spread it around the boundaries of your attic and raccoons will never enter your area. The smell of garlic and cucumber is unpleasant for them and hence they leave the premises in no time!
Ammonia: the ammonia solution which you use to clean tough stains, grease and grime in your kitchen and bathrooms can serve as an effective agent to deter raccoons. If you know the nest area of the raccoons then you can keep small rags dipped in ammonia near their nest or just spray ammonia around the places where raccoons have been spotted. If you are not aware about any of such spots then just spray ammonia solution in your trash bin as raccoons would definitely scavenge through the trash bins. As a preventive measure, you can spray ammonia around the garden area near your plants so that they are not drawn towards your blooming plants.
Pepper Solution: Solution made up of Cayenne pepper, hot sauce and some water can also serve as a perfect deterrent to keep raccoons away. They really hate the smell of spices and peppers and thus stay away from the area where they smell their solution. It is a quick and effective home remedy as you can spray this solution over your shrubs, plants and bushes as well. It serves as a pesticide and thus keeps them protected. Don't forget to reapply this solution following rainfall!
Vinegar & Epsom Salt: Vinegar is just another taste maker present in the kitchen and if you are gardening for some time then you must be having Epsom salt. Both vinegar and Epsom salt are not of raccoons taste and they run away after tasting both of them. Epsom salt also helps is making your grass greener and increase productivity of your garden. Sprinkle salt and vinegar and raccoons will never come back if they taste them out .
