If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Davis County 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 Davis County, and I recommend the following:
Complete Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 801-438-6043
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call the County Animal Services: (801) 444-2200
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 801-438-6043
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 the 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 Davis County wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Davis County 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.
Davis County 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 Davis County 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 Davis County 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 Davis County 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 Davis County 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 Davis County pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Davis County 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 Davis County trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Davis County 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.

. 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 Davis County. 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 Davis County 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 Davis County. And remember, we are a private business, not the County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (801) 444-2200.
the County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Davis County Wildlife Tip #1:
What Should I do With a House Mouse after I Catch it?
Very many people find it easy to trap mice but they have a hard time dealing with the mice after capture. As an individual, there are some few choices that you can make that are very effective.
This is the easiest method. It involves transferring captured mice to another location, often farther away from your house. This is an effective method since the mice cannot find their way back to your house. However, it would also mean that the mice will look for another place to inhabit, and that would mean that they would become a nuisance to other people. Also, if you are in a big farm, or in the upcountry, relocating mice may be a little hectic since there are lots of mice and relocating all of them may become tiresome. Instead of relocation, you are better of using other methods like cremation.
This involves burning the corpse of the mouse. This is a very effective method of dealing with mice. However, burning a mouse alive is not a humane thing to do and so this only applies when the mice is dead. You should first drain its life and then you can cremate the body afterwards. This method is the most effective when the mice are infected with a disease that can be transferred to humans or pets.
Burying mice is also another effective method of getting rid of trapped mice. The downside of this method is that the mice have to be dead in order to bury them. Just dig a pit that is deeper that one meter and bury them. You should also be cautious if there are many dogs in your area, since there have been cases of dogs pulling up these corpses and at times feeding on them.
Feed it to a pet
Do you have a pet that loves live prey? Well, this is your chance to let the pet have some fun. Pets like cats like hunting rats and mice. If these animals were captured and thrown to them alive, then they could feed on them without having to hunt them down. Just ensure that the mice are not infected as some diseases can be transferred to your pets.
Many people are tempted to throw the captured mice away, but you should remember that the mice will become a nuisance to other people. Throwing the mice in a dumpster is also wrong since the corpse may start smelling after some few days. If you are not comfortable with any of the above methods, then the best choice is to call animal control services. They should take care of the issue for you.
Davis County 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.
