If you have a problem with wildlife in your Great Falls home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Montana 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 Montana and Great Falls, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Cascade County Animal Services: 406-455-8492
Wildlife Removal Montana specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Montana also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Wildlife Removal Montana 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 406-564-1300 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 Montana is a full-service Great Falls wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Great Falls pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Removal Montana 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.
Great Falls wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Montana 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 Montana law. We offer Great Falls raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Removal Montana. 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 Great Falls 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 Great Falls 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 Great Falls rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Montana 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 Great Falls pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Great Falls 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 Great Falls trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Great Falls 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 Montana does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Removal Montana. 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 Montana also provides dead animal removal in Great Falls. 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 Great Falls snake removal - most of the snakes in Montana are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Great Falls. And remember, we are a private business, not Cascade County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 406-455-8492. Cascade 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.
Great Falls Wildlife Tip #1:
What to do with caught raccoon - If you've caught a raccoon, the first thing you need to do is make sure there are no babies left behind. Most racoons inside of a home are nursing females. Take a good look at your prisoner. If the animal has protruding nipples, it's a good best there are babies somewhere in the building. If you can't find the litter right away, waiting until dusk will usually help you. This is when the babies will become active, making all sorts of chirps, growls, and distinctive cries. Once located, you might have to cut them out of a wall where the mother has stashed them. Now they can be relocated with the parent. Unfortunately, because of the high stress level of relocation, some mother racoons will abandon their young. Check back daily to see if the babies have been moved by the mother. If not, you might want to gather them up and take them to a wildlife rehabilitator. Regardless of whether the racoon you caught is male or female, it should be taken at least five miles away from your home, though further would be better.
Great Falls Wildlife Tip #2:
What sort of bait catches a unwanted stray cat? - A lot of people become all too consumed with trapping unwanted stray cats and other wild creatures once they have inhabited their homes or yards, but in reality, rather than focusing on removing that particular problem from your life, you should rather look at removing the problem altogether, by combining the trapping and removal of the creature, as well as preventative measures to ensure that the problem is removed altogether. While looking at the right bait to catch a unwanted stray cat, such as cat or dog food, leftovers from dinner, seeds, fruit and road kill, you should also look at taking some of the following preventative measures: Make sure that all routes into your home or yard are sealed to prevent further access. It will prove harder to wildlife-proof your yard, but there are a few things that you can do to protect your home. For example, making sure that your windows are covered with screens that cannot be easily opened, any chimney tops and entrances to air conditioning units are correctly covered, and also by generally making sure there are no openings to your home. Use things like artificial creatures to deter any potential threats from your land. This could be an owl sat in a tree, a hawk on the roof of your home, or even a snake in the flower garden. These are not guaranteed to work, of course; the animals aren't stupid. However, it is one tool that you have at your disposal that is worth a shot. Use things like cayenne pepper sprinkled around your fruit trees and gardens. Most animals don't like substances like this, and even if you can't avoid the threat of a unwanted stray cat, you can at least avoid the threat of other animals!
