If you have a problem with wildlife in your Fargo 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 Fargo, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Cass County Animal Services: 701-235-4493

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife Removal North Dakota is a full-service Fargo wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Fargo 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.
Fargo 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 Fargo 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 Fargo 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 Fargo 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 Fargo 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 Fargo pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Fargo 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 Fargo trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Fargo 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 Fargo. 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 Fargo 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 Fargo. And remember, we are a private business, not Cass County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 701-235-4493. Cass 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.
Fargo Wildlife Tip #1:
What should I do if there is a raccoon in my attic - A raccoon in the attic might seem like the end of the world, but it could be worse; you could have a rat infestation. People will argue the merits of one over the other, but a raccoon isn't going to be sneaking through all the areas of your home in the way a rat would. Regardless, you need to have the animal trapped and removed before you can think about fortifying your house. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make is sealing up the raccoon hole when they see the animal leave the building. The problem with this is that most raccoons inside of a home are mothers. Somewhere inside there is a litter of kits that will be crying to be fed in a few hours. Not only will the mother return to your attic, if she can't get in, she'll try to create a new opening. If she's unsuccessful and you never remove the babies, you'll eventually be hunting through your walls looking to remove stinking corpses. The smell of a dead animal can take months to dissipate, and you can only imagine what multiple decaying bodies would be like. The best way to handle the situation is to have a professional come and trap the mother raccoon as well as find and safely remove her young. This way mother and children can be relocated to a safe place together.
Fargo Wildlife Tip #2:
Snake poop looks like - Snake poop looks like a pile of mush filled with fur, unidentifiable brown slop, and other indigestible items. It will often have a white cap of urea present. Snakes eliminate waste from the cloaca, a single opening at the base of the tail. This orifice is for both solid and liquid elimination, a reason why the snake's feces are so moist. You will rarely encounter snake poop. Snakes only pass waste as often as they eat, and some species can go weeks or months without ingesting a meal. You can often mistake snake poop for many other carnivore or bird poop. The best idea when it comes to identification is to start eliminating all the other animals that may have left the droppings behind. You will only see white urea in some species, and you will not see as much liquid in an animal that easts a fair share of plant material. All of these clues must be examined to gain a clear image of which critter you're dealing with. If it is snake poop, little will be discerned from it other than the animal's general size.
