If you have a problem with wildlife in your Bismarck home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in North Dakota 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 North Dakota and Bismarck, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Burleigh County Animal Services: 701-222-2719

bats in buildings, and Wildlife Removal North Dakota 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 701-999-0898 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 Removal North Dakota is a full-service Bismarck wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Bismarck pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Removal North Dakota 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.
Bismarck wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in North Dakota 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 North Dakota law. We offer Bismarck raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Removal North Dakota. 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 Bismarck 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 Bismarck 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 Bismarck rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. North Dakota 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 Bismarck pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Bismarck 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 Bismarck trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Bismarck 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 North Dakota does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Removal North Dakota. 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 Removal North Dakota also provides dead animal removal in Bismarck. 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 Bismarck snake removal - most of the snakes in North Dakota are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Bismarck. And remember, we are a private business, not Burleigh County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 701-222-2719. Burleigh 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.
Bismarck Wildlife Tip #1:
What would be the best place to release an opossum? - Have you successfully managed to trap that problematic opossum that has been driving you mad? If the answer was yes, then you may be in a situation where you are not entirely sure what to do with the creature next. This is the hardest part for so many people that manage to trap the animal that has been driving them bonkers - where exactly are you meant to release the animal? The thing that you need to remember is that the rules and regulations about trapping and releasing various wild animals will differ from state to state, and city to city, so ultimately, you are going to need to do your research on the topic before you make any final decisions on what you should be doing with your opossum. You are not going to want to get into any trouble with the local authorities just because you are trying to release a problematic opossum, so it makes sense to be in the know beforehand. Of course, as well as the legal reasons for wanting to do your research, you are going to want to make sure that the opossum you are releasing is actually going to survive. After all, what would be the point in going to all the effort and hard work of humanely trapping the animal, only to kill it when you release it back into the wild. The problem with releasing opossums, is that if you don't do it far enough away from your home, or at least into a nest box, you run the risk of the animal moving right back into your house again. At the same time, however, if you move it too far away, it is likely to die. This is the problem you will face should you choose to remove the animal yourself, rather than using a wildlife control professional which is always highly advised.
Bismarck Wildlife Tip #2:
What does a baby skunk sound like - Baby skunks sound a lot like small puppies, minus the characteristic dog bark. They do make a similar sound, but it's definitely not a retriever's yap. They also make an array of squeaks, squeals, and whimpers; all depending on if they are hungry, tired, or sick. It takes a very well-trained expert to be able to differentiate between what the sounds mean. Honestly, your best clue to if the animals you are hearing around your home are skunks is if you smell skunk. The babies will not yet have an odor, but the mother sure will. She probably hasn't sprayed, but all skunks have an inherent stench that follows them and lingers in the places where they spend time. If you smell skunk and hear little whimpers, you probably have a litter of babies hidden somewhere. Skunks give birth in the spring, usually around May, so this will be the time frame you hear the noises. If you're hearing sound in the dead of winter up in your attic, you've probably got rats or mice or another, smaller critter. Trapping and removing a skunk with babies isn't any more difficult than trapping one without. For humanitarian purposes, if you trap the mother, you should do what you can to retrieve the babies and relocate them together.
