If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Bartlesville 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 Bartlesville, and I recommend the following:

Wildlife Removal and Prevention Services of NEO is a full-service Bartlesville wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Bartlesville pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Removal and Prevention Services of NEO 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.
Bartlesville 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 Bartlesville raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Removal and Prevention Services of NEO. 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 Bartlesville 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 Bartlesville 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 Bartlesville 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 Bartlesville pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Bartlesville 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 Bartlesville trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Bartlesville 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 Removal and Prevention Services of NEO does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Removal and Prevention Services of NEO. 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.

in Bartlesville. And remember, we are a private business, not Washington County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (918) 336-1577.
Washington County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Bartlesville Wildlife Tip #1:What Is A Bat's Natural Habitat?
Bats typically reside on variety of landscapes or different habitats all through the year looking for travel, feed and roost. They use hunting grounds to travel and find foods. Most of the bat species eat insects thus they look for places where there are a lot of insects to hunt. Some bats prefer woods, others prefer grasslands or waterways. There is no specific habitat choice for all bats. It usually depends on the species of the bat.
Waterways and ponds usually provide a chance for the bat to rehydrate and since they also attract flying insects, it becomes a feeding ground for them. Typically bats have two types of habitats such as foraging habitat and commuting habitat. They use foraging habitat to find food and commuting habitat to travel between different roosts. So if you were to gain information about bat's natural habitat, it would be these two. It is vital that these habitats remain conserved as the livelihood of the bats is dependent on them.
At home, the place where a bat lives is called a roost. They are in the habit of requiring different conditions for their roost at different time of the year. They will often travel to different roosts according to their needs. During summer, when female bats give birth to young bats, they form a maternity roost. While in winter, they create hibernation roost. Earlier the bats used to live in caves and trees, but now they have evolved to urban lifestyle. So now they have started coming more and more into cities. This also has created a lot of problems for housekeepers as bats invade the house and use it as their roost.
This also creates a lot of bio hazards for the people living in the house. They usually prefer to live in a hot and cosy place.
Since bats feed on insects, so when out in the wild, bats create roosts near woodlands, water and pastures. Usually bats use echolocation to travel in the forests and that helps them find their way in an accurate manner. Most of the grasslands and farmlands create a good hunting ground for the bats.
Many people are unaware of the fact that bats typically use hedgerows, rivers and woodland edges as corridors to travel from one place to another. Bats treat them as navigational landmarks and this also helps them to stay protected from the predators. As they travel in the night, they use echolocation which bounces off from these features and helps them find their way to home.
If the route is destroyed (maybe by a road) then bats cannot reach their foraging habitat and get lost along the way.
Bartlesville Wildlife Tip #2:
Oklahoma Wildlife Information:
Oklahoma State bird: Scissor-tailed flycatcher
State mammal: Bison
State reptile: Common collared lizard
State amphibian: North American bullfrog
State fish: White bass
State insect: European honeybee
Oklahoma is a land filled with lush grasslands, absent of tall mountains. The state does have numerous mountain ranges, but most of these are mesa-like, surrounding canyons and winding rivers. Of all the states in the country, Oklahoma is one of the most diverse when it comes to habitats. Though only 24 percent of the region is forested, there are areas of wetlands, grasslands, woodlands, and semi-arid zones. The state sits in the midst of the Great Plains, and it is subject to severe weather throughout the year. The weather is mostly warm and wet, though temperature differences can be significant between the north and south parts of the state.
Being in the central Great Plains, it's not surprising to learn that bison still roam this region. Rampant slaughter of the large grazing animals during the early years of the country almost wiped the species out. Now, as a protected animal, bison once again roam the grasslands along with herds of elk and white-tailed deer. There are not many large predators in the state. Black bears are the largest, but they rarely go after something as large as a deer, being content to forage for berries and insects. Coyotes are the primary predator and are scattered around the region. Wolves were once native to the state, but the last wolf in Oklahoma was seen back in the 1930's.
A state with abundant grassland will be a state with an abundance of small animals. The wide spaces are ideal for prairie dogs, and these little creatures can prove very detrimental to farmers and their equipment. Other nuisance animals are bats, skunks, rats, mice, squirrels, and armadillos.
The state has a fair portion of wetlands in the south where semi-aquatic animals spend their time. The entirety of Oklahoma is fed by some 500 rivers and streams. It is the state with the most man-made reservoirs. In the wetlands, cypress trees conceal the American alligator, turtles, snakes, birds, and lizards. A common nuisance animal, the raccoon, is particularly fond of the swamp lands, sneaking in to steal eggs from birds and lizards alike. State conservationists looking to monitor the wetlands pay close attention to the raccoon population. If the raccoons vanish, something is wrong in the ecosystem.
