If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Green Bay home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Wisconsin 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 Green Bay, and I recommend the following:
Fox Valley Wildlife Control, LLC
Cell Phone: 920-570-6577
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Brown County Animal Services: 920-448-3201
Fox Valley Wildlife Control, LLC specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Wisconsin also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Fox Valley Wildlife Control, LLC 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 920-570-6577
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 Wisconsin and Brown 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
Fox Valley Wildlife Control, LLC is a full-service Green Bay wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Green Bay pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Fox Valley Wildlife Control, LLC 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.
Green Bay wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin law. We offer Green Bay raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Fox Valley Wildlife Control, LLC. 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 Green Bay 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 Green Bay 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 Green Bay rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Wisconsin 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 Green Bay pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Green Bay 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 Green Bay trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Green Bay 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. Fox Valley Wildlife Control, LLC does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Fox Valley Wildlife Control, LLC. 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
. Fox Valley Wildlife Control, LLC
also provides dead animal removal in Green Bay. 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 Green Bay snake removal - most of the snakes in Wisconsin are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Green Bay. And remember, we are a private business, not Brown County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 920-448-3201.
Brown County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Green Bay Wildlife Tip #1:
What to do after a raccoon gets into an attic - It's not usually legal for homeowners to take matters into their own hands when it comes to a raccoon. If you know there is one in the attic, you should call a professional to come and trap the critter. Too many potential complications exist when it comes to this particular nuisance animal. Most raccoons in a home are those with a nursing litter. This means the adult is a female, and she might just stick around the attic to defend her young if you get too close. It is sometimes possible to find and remove the babies while the mother is outside, but this will require some observation of the creature's habits and a some time dedicated to identifying where the litter might be. If you can remove the babies while the mother is away, you can actually use them to lure her into a large cage trap. Of course, you shouldn't leave the babies out 24 hours of the day. Sometimes a young female will abandon her litter if she becomes too stressed. If a few days pass and she doesn't return to retrieve the infants, hand the babies over to a wildlife rehabilitator. The mother can always be trapped on her own with a cage trap if she comes back to the location weeks later.
Green Bay Wildlife Tip #2:
Removing squirrel from your house - Have you recently found an squirrel living in your home that you cannot wait to get rid of? Thankfully, with more and more people finding themselves living alongside creatures just like this one, there are now more ways than ever to remove it from your life. From the simplest method of calling someone else to do the job for you, to the more complicated methods of removal including trapping and releasing and poisons; there are now more ways than ever before to remove the problematic squirrel from your life. 1- Kill traps and poisons - we will get to this one first, simply to get it out of the way. This is the last resort that you should look at with an squirrel simply because it is neither safe or humane. The creature isn't living in your home to spite you; it is simply looking for somewhere to rest its head so exterminating seems a little out of order. You should also bear in mind the safety aspects surrounding this form of removal. 2 -Call the wildlife guys - from the last resorts, (poisons and kill traps) to the first; the wildlife guys know what they are doing. They will have all of the tools that are needed to deal with the problem, as well as the knowledge and tricks of the trade to get it all done and finished with as soon as possible. Yes, it may cost you, but in the long run, at least you know the job will be done properly. 3- Nest boxes - these are very simple ways to remove the problem of the squirrel from your home and get it into your yard. Admittedly, this doesn't exactly solve the problem, but it can bring some relief and you never know, after a few days in your new nest box, the squirrel could choose somewhere else to live anyway! 4- Finally, we come to trapping and releasing the animal yourself. This will take some tools, such as bait and traps, and also knowledge - where to put them, where to release, (there are rules and regulations that differ in different states) etc.
Wisconsin Wildlife Information:
Wisconsin State bird: American robin
State mammal: Badger
State fish: Muskellunge
State insect: European honeybee
Wisconsin was made famous for its cheese factories, but it is a landscape rich with lake shores, coastal plains, sandstone formations, flat farmland, and mixed hardwood and pine forests. Unlike Maryland, which has no natural lakes, Wisconsin has thousands of glacial lakes throughout the state. Over 46 percent of Wisconsin is forested. It is a humid state with hot summers and cold winters.
The animals in Wisconsin are forest-lovers. The state is filled with raccoons, porcupines, skunks, opossums, squirrels, chipmunks, bats, and mice. Not surprisingly, large animals are also fond of the woods, and the state has moose, elk, and white-tailed deer.
Semi-aquatic animals also make their homes in the thousands of lake regions. Beavers, otters, and muskrats all thrive in self-made wetlands. Many of the animals are undisturbed due to the large expanse of preserved woodlands. In those same woodlands, large predators also make their homes. Wisconsin is home to black bears, mountain lions, coyotes, and timber wolves.
The timber wolf is known to be the most aggressive of the wolf species in the United States. These animals are not as prone to livestock killing as are coyotes, but if a winter is particularly harsh, wolves will often take down cattle or sheep.
Cougars are not often seen as nuisance animals, though attacks on people are becoming more and more common. This is partially due to man's encroachment into nature, but it is also because of dwindling food supplies for the large cats.
The state isn't all about the woods, though. There are ample fields in the region, and there are a number of animals that enjoy living out in the open. The badger is a fantastic digger, and it makes its home in dens dug out of the loose grassland soil. While the badger is a fierce warrior in the animal world, it does homeowners a favor by eating a diet primarily of small rodents. Along with the badger, woodchucks are another underground dweller in the state.
The list of common animals in Wisconsin also contains the most common pest animals in the state. Raccoons are notorious for living in people's attics. Rats are a world-wide pest animal. Unfortunately, rats can survive in just about any environment, and there is nothing about Wisconsin that would turn the animals off. The state also has very strict rules and regulations regarding the removal of nuisance wildlife. Before undertaking any animal removal projects, seek guidance from a professional company.
