If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Layton home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Utah 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 Layton, and I recommend the following:
Complete Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 801-758-5670
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Davis County Animal Services: (801) 444-2200
Complete Wildlife Removal specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Utah also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Complete Wildlife Removal 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 801-758-5670
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 Utah and Davis 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
Complete Wildlife Removal is a full-service Layton wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Layton pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Complete Wildlife Removal 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.
Layton wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Utah 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 Utah law. We offer Layton raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Complete Wildlife Removal. 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 Layton 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 Layton 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 Layton rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Utah 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 Layton pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Layton 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 Layton trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Layton 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. Complete Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Complete Wildlife Removal. 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.

. 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
. Complete Wildlife Removal
also provides dead animal removal in Layton. 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 Layton snake removal - most of the snakes in Utah are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Layton. And remember, we are a private business, not Davis County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (801) 444-2200.
Davis County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Layton Wildlife Tip #1:Why Do Skunk Spray?
Skunk is a black and white animal that belongs to the weasel family. They are notorious for their ability to eject foul-smelling fluid from their anus. The foul-smelling fluid usually comes out of their anal gland mostly as defensive action. This animal can cause serious damage to things in the lawn, garden and other parts of human property. Allow skunk to share space in your garden, yard and others can result to serious damage you will not be happy to behold. That is the reason; you should ensure that you avoid them from gaining access to your property for any reason.
Skunk spray for defensive action
Just as every wild animal get defensive feature, so skunk also has. It always try as much as possible to avoid falling victim of their enemies and in order to ensure that it is save from attacks it usually ready to release the sprays from the anal gland. In fact, the main reason why skunks usually spray is to defend themselves from the attack of their enemies and their predators. You can fall victim of spay if you showcase yourself as threat to the animal.
Skunk spray to scare human away from it
Apart from defending itself from the predators and other enemies, skunks usually spray to scare away every other animal around their surroundings. The spray usually results to serious discomfort to the victim making them to move farther away from them at any point in time. Your pets can be sprayed when they get too close to skunks for attacks and other reasons.
Skunk sprays when threatened in a particular place
Skunk is one of the animals that easily get frightened. They are usually attentive to notice presence of their predator and other enemies coming any corner. Most time when they are threatened the only way to ensure absolute protection from the threat around is by releasing spray. That is the reason why you should never try to threaten the animal if you do not want to suffer from serious odor and discomforting smell.
Skunk claim territory with their spray
When skunk want to claim a particular territory they are always ready to release fluid in order to avoid any other animal to come close to them. That is the reason skunks usually spray even pets that do not intend to attack them. You can even get sprayed when you trap skunk with humane trap and try to relocate to another place.
Layton Wildlife Tip #2:
Utah Wildlife Information:
Utah State bird: California gull
State mammal: Rocky Mountain elk
State fish: Bonneville cutthroat trout
State insect: European honey bee
Utah is one of the few states with enough of a variety in landscape to support multiple large and small animals. While the region tends to be warm and dry for the summer and cold and dry during the winter, some of the mountain regions receive ample snow. The snowfall is so good, in fact, that many of the ski resorts in the state are renowned for their light, powdery snow. The state is dry because of the placement of mountains in neighboring locations. These tall peaks create what is called a rainfall shadow, meaning most of the moisture is gone before it reaches mainland Utah. Much of the land is arid for this reason, with tall mesas and sandstone formations. Pine forests are lovely in the river valleys, and are another reason why the state can support so much life.
Utah has a number of large creatures walking through the wilderness. There are desert bighorn sheep, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, elk, moose, pronghorns, mule deer, bison, white-tailed deer, and mountain goats. These large grazers are accompanied by large predators include grizzly bears, black bears, mountain lions, and gray wolves. Smaller predators are also abundant, and Utah has both bobcats and Canadian lynx. Coyotes tend to be a presence in most of the nation, and Utah is no exception. While these canines won't compete with wolves for food, they have a wide variety of meal options in the desert areas and lower woodlands.
Small creatures abound in the warm, dry climate. The arid regions boast numerous reptiles, one of the most famous being the Gila monster. Gila monsters feed primarily on eggs from birds and other reptiles. Several species of rattlesnakes are common throughout the state. The snakes, accompanied by many non-venomous serpents, spend their time feeding on the more than adequate variety of rodents in Utah.
The region has small rodents like brush mice, black rats, cactus mice, kangaroo mice, desert shrews, and desert woodrats.
The deserts are home to a small rabbit called the pygmy rabbit, the result of an evolutionary shrinking process likely due to scarce water supply. The rabbit is just the first in a list of common nuisance animals including raccoons, ringtails, mice, squirrels, muskrats, nutria, and beavers.
