If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Bixby 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 Bixby, and I recommend the following:
Wildlife X Team
Cell Phone: 918-900-6170
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Wagoner County Animal Services: 918-495-3647
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 918-900-6170
to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
- Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
- Fully Oklahoma and Wagoner County licensed and insured
- Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Wildlife X Team is a full-service Bixby wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Bixby 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.
Bixby 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 Bixby 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 Bixby 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 Bixby 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 Bixby 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 Bixby pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Bixby 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 Bixby trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Bixby 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 Bixby. 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 Bixby 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 Bixby. And remember, we are a private business, not Wagoner County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 918-495-3647.
Wagoner County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Bixby Wildlife Tip #1:
What is the most important thing about a nuisance wild animal? Although the nuisance wild animal is a creature that looks like it belongs in a kid's comical TV show or movie, it is actually an animal that will eventually drive you more than a little crazy. The cute yet unique looking exterior is an elaborate ploy for you to enjoy its presence in your home at first, only to be met with a vast amount of disappointment and annoyance once you realize what the animal is really all about! The most important thing that you will need to know about the nuisance wild animal is that it will not be a problem for you until it has no home of its own, then it is going to want to take over yours as best as it can. This may seem like a novelty at first, but once you have lived side by side with this creature for a few weeks, you will soon see the problems that it will bring along with it. The noise is going to be the first thing that annoys you - the nuisance wild animals will chat to each other, growl and bark at each other in a territory war, sneeze and call to its babies/mother, and that is before you even begin to think about it keeping you up at night with the incessant scuffling in and around your home or yard. The droppings is more than likely going to be the next problem - these both bring disease, will stain any roofing/wall/attic materials it comes into contact with, smells pretty awful and also can bring parasites. The nuisance wild animal may bring bugs which will affect your household and your pets - mites, ticks and fleas are a very common problem. Mess is something that is going to drive you mad, even if the above list of things doesn't. There is the damage that the nuisance wild animal is going to cause within your home, as well as the garbage can that it will knock over and the litter it will leave strewn about your yard as it struggles to find a source of food. In conclusion, it could be said that the most important thing to remember about the nuisance wild animal is that it won't cause you any problems until it tries to move into your home or yard, and at this point, you are going to have rather serious problems indeed!
Bixby Wildlife Tip #2:
Who do I call to remove a possum from my attic? - So, you have figured out that you have a possum problem in your attic, what on earth do you do next? Well, you can either go ahead and try to trap the creature yourself, but this will take a lot of time, hassle and money; all of these things could be eliminated as a factor with the help of a professional! There are so many things that you will need to think about with trying to trap a possum. You will need to pick the right trap, put the right bait down, ensure that the traps are in places that the possum will actually be lured in by them, and then you have the concerns of what you are going to do with the animal after you have caught it. It is normally illegal to release the animal in certain places - information that you are going to need to figure out. The trouble and hassle doesn't stop there however; once you have caught the animal, you need to look at the cleanup and this could mean removing the feces and urine left behind, which could potentially cause a biohazard, especially when you consider how many diseases these creatures can carry. Also, you will need to look at blocking all entrances and exits that the animals could have been using to prevent any more problems. The good news is that all of these things can be done by a good wildlife control professional, and you don't have to be super smart to find them either. Just a quick look in the local phonebook or a look online will be able to point you in the right direction. For example, if you live in Florida, you could type in the words "Florida wildlife control" into any internet search engine, and you will be met by many results for you to choose from. Alternatively, you could give the local city animal services a shout and let them lead the way.
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.
You can always call Wildlife X Team, any time of day, at 918-900-6170, for a price quote for Bixby wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Bixby, OK.
