If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Cedar City home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Utah 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 Cedar City, and I recommend the following:
Complete Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 435-238-4149
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Iron County Animal Services: (435) 586-2960
Complete Wildlife Removal specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Utah also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Complete Wildlife Removal 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 435-238-4149
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 Utah and Iron 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
Complete Wildlife Removal is a full-service Cedar City wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Cedar City pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Complete Wildlife Removal 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.
Cedar City wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Utah 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 Utah law. We offer Cedar City raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Complete Wildlife Removal. 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 Cedar City 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 Cedar City 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 Cedar City rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Utah 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 Cedar City pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Cedar City 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 Cedar City trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Cedar City 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. Complete Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Complete Wildlife Removal. 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
. Complete Wildlife Removal
also provides dead animal removal in Cedar City. 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 Cedar City snake removal - most of the snakes in Utah are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Cedar City. And remember, we are a private business, not Iron County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (435) 586-2960.
Iron County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Cedar City Wildlife Tip #1:BROWN WATER SNAKE
The Brown Water snake is a nonvenomous snake native to the Southeastern United States. It is also known as a water pilot, aspic or false moccasin. As its name implies, it is a water loving snake, with a heavy, bulky body and big head. It is brown with dark square markings on its back and a yellow belly. They can measure between 30 to 70 inches and are especially designed to spend the majority of their time in the water, with their eyes and nostrils on the top of their heads, allowing them to breath and see without having to fully emerge from the surface.
They like living in the water, but can also be found in the water's edge in places like California, Virginia, Florida and Georgia. They like to live in flowing bodies of water and will look for overhanging vegetation where they can bask in the sun without much risk of being seen, this also allows them to dive quickly into the water if they sense danger.
They are active during the day and night, which means, if they're not basking in the sun, they are constantly hunting for prey. Brown Water snakes prefer swimming to anything else, but are also excellent climbers. They primarily feed on fish, frogs, rodents and even earthworm; they avoid catfish, but are not averse to eating other snakes. During pregnancy, a female will not hunt due to the extra weight, but rather use the reserve of they have stored well in advance in her body.
Brown Water snakes are viviparous, meaning the give birth to live offspring instead of laying eggs. They mate during the spring, not on the water but on branches of trees or on dry land. The pregnancy is initiated by ovulation, and the female will incubate the eggs inside her body, giving birth to around 20 to 60 young snakes at the end of the summer. When born, they are around 7 to 10 inches long, with the males being larger and longer than the females. This changes as they grow up and as adults, the males are smaller than the females. The life expectancy of a Brown Water snake is approximately 6 years.
The Brown Water snake is not venomous, but is best left alone. If it feels threatened or cornered it will not hesitate to strike and bite, and due to its bulky size and bite from one of these, though not deadly, can cause you a lot of pain. It is not recommended, therefore, to seek them, try to capture them or have them as pets. They are best left alone in their natural habitats, where they play an important role keeping the balance of the ecosystem.
Cedar City Wildlife Tip #2:
Utah Wildlife Information:
Utah State bird: California gull
State mammal: Rocky Mountain elk
State fish: Bonneville cutthroat trout
State insect: European honey bee
Utah is one of the few states with enough of a variety in landscape to support multiple large and small animals. While the region tends to be warm and dry for the summer and cold and dry during the winter, some of the mountain regions receive ample snow. The snowfall is so good, in fact, that many of the ski resorts in the state are renowned for their light, powdery snow. The state is dry because of the placement of mountains in neighboring locations. These tall peaks create what is called a rainfall shadow, meaning most of the moisture is gone before it reaches mainland Utah. Much of the land is arid for this reason, with tall mesas and sandstone formations. Pine forests are lovely in the river valleys, and are another reason why the state can support so much life.
Utah has a number of large creatures walking through the wilderness. There are desert bighorn sheep, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, elk, moose, pronghorns, mule deer, bison, white-tailed deer, and mountain goats. These large grazers are accompanied by large predators include grizzly bears, black bears, mountain lions, and gray wolves. Smaller predators are also abundant, and Utah has both bobcats and Canadian lynx. Coyotes tend to be a presence in most of the nation, and Utah is no exception. While these canines won't compete with wolves for food, they have a wide variety of meal options in the desert areas and lower woodlands.
Small creatures abound in the warm, dry climate. The arid regions boast numerous reptiles, one of the most famous being the Gila monster. Gila monsters feed primarily on eggs from birds and other reptiles. Several species of rattlesnakes are common throughout the state. The snakes, accompanied by many non-venomous serpents, spend their time feeding on the more than adequate variety of rodents in Utah.
The region has small rodents like brush mice, black rats, cactus mice, kangaroo mice, desert shrews, and desert woodrats.
The deserts are home to a small rabbit called the pygmy rabbit, the result of an evolutionary shrinking process likely due to scarce water supply. The rabbit is just the first in a list of common nuisance animals including raccoons, ringtails, mice, squirrels, muskrats, nutria, and beavers.
