If you have a problem with wildlife in your Menomonee Falls 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 Menomonee Falls, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Waukesha County Animal Services: 262-542-8851

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Milwaukee Animal Removal is a full-service Menomonee Falls wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Menomonee Falls pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Milwaukee Animal 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.
Menomonee Falls 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 Menomonee Falls raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Milwaukee Animal 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 Menomonee 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 Menomonee 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 Menomonee Falls 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 Menomonee Falls pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Menomonee 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 Menomonee Falls trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Menomonee 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. Milwaukee Animal Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Milwaukee Animal 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. 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. Milwaukee Animal Removal also provides dead animal removal in Menomonee 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 Menomonee Falls 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 Menomonee Falls. And remember, we are a private business, not Waukesha County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 262-542-8851. Waukesha 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.
Menomonee Falls Wildlife Tip #1:
What sort of bait catches a skunk? - When you want to trap that pesky skunk that has been causing a nuisance of itself in your yard, you want to do so in the shortest time frame possible. This means that choosing the right bait to encourage your little guy to hopefully get caught up in the trap is a very important factor that you will need to take into consideration. Think about it - if nothing catches the skunks eye, it is not going to go anywhere near the trap, is it? Skunks are scavengers by nature so in reality, you could probably chuck any number of things in the trap to work as a tasty lure, but as with most wild animals, there will be some foods that work better than others. In order to figure out what works for your skunk, you should take a look at what he is doing in your yard. Is he stealing your cat or dog food? Is he scrambling around in your fruit trees trying to steal your delicious fruits? Is he rooting through garbage can and making a mess? The answers to these questions will help you to identify the food that he loves, and in turn you can effectively use them as bait. For example, if you are constantly finding that your pet food has been stolen, these foods will more than likely work as bait. If he is more than happy to root through your garbage to get to leftover meats, they will be good enough for the traps. Skunks also love sweet, sugary food such as fruits, so maybe thrown a couple of kiwi fruits, a handful of strawberries, and an apple or two would work too.
Menomonee Falls Wildlife Tip #2:
Humane wildlife removal raccoon - There are no robots out there that have yet been used in animal removal, though some of the technologies seen for the Mars Rover are pretty impressive. A machine lacks the fine motor skills and reasoning ability of a human and is still inferior to a human when it comes to many things. Because handling animals requires care and attention to changing details, the human touch is almost always necessary. You can capture a nuisance raccoon in a humane way, without the use of traps like leg holds or body gripping devices. In fact, if you can find and remove the raccoon's babies while the mother is out, you can use the young to lure the mother into a trap. This should only be done while you can monitor the infants; you don't want them exposed to the elements and predators for too long. Never leave babies outside in the heat of the day. If you don't like the idea of using the kits as a lure, trapping the raccoon can be done using a cage trap and some marshmallows. Raccoons are opportunistic feeders, and while they like meats and fruits, using bread or a marshmallow will ensure you don't accidently trap another pest animal like an opossum.
Wisconsin Wildlife Information:

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.
