If you have a problem with wildlife in your Kenosha 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 Wisconsin and Kenosha, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Kenosha County Animal Services: (262) 656-1234
Stateline Animal Control Inc. 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 Stateline Animal Control Inc. 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 262-671-2790 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:
Stateline Animal Control Inc. is a full-service Kenosha wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Kenosha pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Stateline Animal Control Inc. 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.
Kenosha 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 Kenosha raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Stateline Animal Control Inc.. 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 Kenosha 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 Kenosha 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 Kenosha 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 Kenosha pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Kenosha 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 Kenosha trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Kenosha 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. Stateline Animal Control Inc. does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Stateline Animal Control Inc.. 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. Stateline Animal Control Inc. also provides dead animal removal in Kenosha. 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 Kenosha 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 Kenosha. And remember, we are a private business, not Kenosha County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (262) 656-1234. Kenosha 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.
Kenosha Wildlife Tip #1:
What time does nocturnal wild animal go out to get food? - In order to effectively remove the nocturnal wild animal problem from your house, let's say for example, it's currently claiming squatter's rights in your attic, you must have some useful bits of information. These animals are smart - they have been around since the age of the dinosaurs after all! One of the most useful things that you can learn about the nocturnal wild animal is the time at which they go out to feed - this will essentially better help you to set traps, figure out when to block entrances and exits, and generally start on your plan to remove the annoying creature from your attic. Take a look at the sounds that you hear noise from the nocturnal wild animal - it's usually when you are in bed. This gives you some idea of when they are most active. They are nocturnal creatures by nature, although they are venturing out in daylight hours more and more these days, especially as they seem to becoming rather used to people and rural living. However, you will often find that your friendly nocturnal wild animal will wake up at around 9pm, potter out to work, (as in search for food) at around 9/10pm, and then head home for a good night's sleep at around 4am. This gives you plenty of time to block exits, work out where they are getting in and out from and set traps in the right areas. Your main priority at this time may be evicting the nocturnal wild animal completely from your property, but in actual fact by doing this, you are just encouraging other nocturnal wild animals and wild animals to come running. Rather than looking at getting rid of the animal completely, why not consider placing a nest box at the end of your yard? This gives the animal somewhere that it is "allowed" to live, and it will help remove the problem from your attic at least!
Kenosha Wildlife Tip #2:
Skunk in the yard will it leave on its own - Most of the time, a skunk in the yard will leave on its own. If you live near the woods, or even if you just live in a relatively rural area, you are going to see the occasional skunk. The only way to get around it is to install a sturdy perimeter fence. Aside from that, there is no reason to be alarmed by a skunk in your yard. If you investigate long enough, you can probably identify the reason the animal arrived and fix it. Maybe you left your trash out overnight without putting it in a can. That's all it takes for a skunk to smell its way into your yard. Because of the potential for critters to come looking for food, a good way to protect yourself from frequent visits is to make sure there are no edible items lingering around your property. This means no pet food on the porch; no unprotected vegetable garden; no fallen fruit from trees; no compost piles; no gooey bird seed. While eliminating most food sources will keep skunks at bay, it still won't eliminate them all together.
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 Stateline Animal Control Inc., any time of day, at 262-671-2790, for a price quote for Kenosha wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Kenosha, WI.
