If you have a problem with wildlife in your Duncan 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 Oklahoma and Duncan, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Stephens County Animal Services: (580) 252-6608
Wildlife Removal Lawton 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 Removal Lawton 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 580-215-6022 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 Lawton is a full-service Duncan wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Duncan pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Removal Lawton 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.
Duncan 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 Duncan raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Removal Lawton. 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 Duncan 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 Duncan 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 Duncan 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 Duncan pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Duncan 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 Duncan trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Duncan 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 Lawton does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Removal Lawton. 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 Lawton also provides dead animal removal in Duncan. 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 Duncan 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 Duncan. And remember, we are a private business, not Stephens County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (580) 252-6608. Stephens 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.
Duncan Wildlife Tip #1:
How to Get Rid of Bats Without Killing Them
You might be happy to know that bats are not aggressive animals; however, it clearly doesn't mean that they can share your living space. Indeed, neither they are right pets for your home, nor desirable guests. The bad news is that they bring lots of health issues with them and can spread viruses in human beings. These creatures also cause big harm to building materials so it is good to take immediate steps to get rid of them.
Bats often find their way to unused rooms and other unclean corners of the house. They can enter through small holes and will start living inside with their family members. However, it is not good to trap them with their little babies; professionals advice using right bat removal techniques before they get ready to give birth to their babies in your house. When you are not in favor of killing animals and even when the law in your state does not allow you to do so, it is good to use some trusted home based remedies to force them to go away from your property.
Best repellents to get rid of bats without killing them:
If bats have found their way to your attic or any room, the best way to get rid of them is using mothballs. These active creatures cannot resist the strong smell of naphthalene balls and will soon leave your house to avoid it. You can easily find these balls in your local market at pest control stores. Simply tie them to a soft cloth and hand them at an exterior portion of your house; especially in the area attacked by bats. You will soon be able to get rid of them.
These nocturnal creatures cannot handle the terrible smell of Phenol so you can use it as an effective remedy to save your house from their attack. You can easily buy a spray bottle of white phenol from local stores and spare few minutes to spray them in the area attacked by bats in your house. Prefer to repeat this treatment until they leave your house permanently.
Note that, bats often go for a search of food in night hours so if they do not leave babies behind, you can simply clean out the area occupied by them and cover it up with good quality sealants. The best idea is to use nets or hard boards to make sure that they will not be able to reenter your space. You can also leave mothballs in this area to make sure they do not return to your space.
Here is one of the most trustworthy home remedy for getting rid of bats in your area. As soon as bats leave for food in the night hours, you can hang Mylar balloons at entry points in your house. They are filled with helium and do not allow bats to reenter your house. You may have to use this treatment for several days to avail best results.
