Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Hudson, WI

Hudson Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Hudson 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 Hudson, and I recommend the following:

American Animal Control
Cell Phone: 715-598-8739

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call St. Croix County Animal Services: (715) 386-4771



American Animal Control 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 American Animal Control 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 715-598-8739 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 St. Croix 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


American Animal Control is a full-service Hudson wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Hudson pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. American Animal Control 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.

  Hudson 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 Hudson raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at American Animal Control. 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 Hudson 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 Hudson 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 Hudson 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 Hudson pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Hudson 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 Hudson trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Hudson 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. American Animal Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by American Animal Control. 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. American Animal Control also provides dead animal removal in Hudson. 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 Hudson 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 Hudson. And remember, we are a private business, not St. Croix County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (715) 386-4771. St. Croix County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Hudson Wildlife Tip #1:
What to do about rodent feces in attic - The sad fact of the matter when it comes to animal removal from your home is that the removal of the creature is often the easiest part of the job, especially when you consider animals like the rodent, and the areas within your home that it chooses to live, such as the attic. Once you have successfully removed the creature from your home, you will find that there are many more problems to have to deal with, and just one of these problems will be rodent feces in attic. There are three main steps to ensuring that your house is possum-free once the animal itself has been safely removed, and the first of these steps is, of course, the clean up. This means that you will need to remove all of the poop from the attic, and alongside doing this by hand, you may want to consider getting rid of the smaller offending particles by using a vacuum cleaner that is old and not used, or hiring a professional in to do the job for you. You will also need to clear out things such as attic insulation, and in cases of very bad infestations from these creatures, you may find that a much easier task will be to replace the entire insulation, rather than just trying to clean up the stuff you already have in there. Following the clean up, you have the decontamination, which will require certain special products that are specifically designed to kill of the biohazard and disease that the rodent could very well have left behind. Give the local wildlife control guys a call and they can point you in the right direction, and you can always look online or the right tools for the job. The final stage in removing rodent feces in attic is to restore everything back to how it was before the animal moved in, and this is usually things such as replacing electrical wiring or dry wall, making sure that the attic insulation has been correctly replaced, and perhaps even a lick of pain here and there.

Hudson Wildlife Tip #2:
Skunk in homes - A skunk almost never enters a home with the purpose of living in the area where humans are. A skunk looking for a den will climb under a house, under a porch, into a foundation, or into a wall, but they rarely enter a house with intent to stay. If you have a skunk in your home, the chances are that it came in through an open window, door, or pet door in search of food. Most wild animals that become nuisances do so because they are hungry. Leaving out pet food for your dog or cat is the perfect way to lure in a skunk at night. These animals are docile but brave, as they have little to fear from predators in the wild. This makes the exceptionally bold when it comes to wandering into buildings to look for food. Smells will attract them, so make sure the dishes are done, the garbage is put away, and the pet food is picked up-or just close your windows and doors for the night. Either way, keeping skunks out of the house means keeping the food that's out to a minimum.

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.

You can always call American Animal Control, any time of day, at 715-598-8739, for a price quote for Hudson wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Hudson, WI.
