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:
Wildthings Animal Damage Control L.L.C. 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. Wildthings Animal Damage Control L.L.C. 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 Wildthings Animal Damage Control L.L.C.. 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. Wildthings Animal Damage Control L.L.C. does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildthings Animal Damage Control L.L.C.. 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. Wildthings Animal Damage Control L.L.C. 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:
WILL A STROBING LIGHT OR HIGH PITCH SOUND DETERRENT MACHINE WORKS ON RODENT? People like to think that using repellents is more friendly and humane way of getting rid of pest animals. Indeed, it is. There is only one little problem. They will not go anywhere! You may choose to use repellents in order to get rid of pests, but you need to prepare yourself, that instead of peace and quiet you will soon have a full house.
Nowadays when technology made such a leap in the last few decades, devices to repel rodents can be found as well. There are quite a number of electronic gadgets that supposedly help you to get rid of rodents. Professionals, on the other hand, don't share that opinion. In their opinion and, supported with their long years of expertise, these products only meet the market's purpose and nothing else.
Those man-made electronic devices are: electromagnetic devices ultrasonic devices.
These devices are made to produce and discharge some light signal, frequency or sound. The devices are designed to frighten rodents in order to change its path and force it to run to another area, usually away from your home. However, there is no admissible scientific proof to show that these devices actually repel the rodents.
Menomonee Falls Wildlife Tip #2:
The technology of strobing light is supposed to be a safe and harmless device for all rodents and other animals. The device flashes the light in a particularly high strength. Its main objective is attacking sensitive rodent eyes. As the light is unbearable for rodents, expected reaction is for rodents to evacuate the premises in a couple of days. The device should be placed along the rodent's regular route. The path takes in order to get some food and water. This device can be placed outside, however, when rodents are already in our house it's quite useless. The rodents just care and find the other possible way around the house.
This machine has been reported as a fraudulent device, due to several studies. High-pitch ultrasonic sound devices are labeled as new high-tech gadgets that will send all creatures away. The answer to your prayers, however, the truth is far from it. They might be getting some better reviews as the manufacturers and scientists constantly research and included some improvements in their latest products. These devices might have some impact on certain rodents, but overall there is no quick and magical solution. The results are still far from convincing and severely inadequate.
Rodents might get distracted for a while with these gadgets, but they will soon reevaluate the situation and very quickly found a new solution how to work around the device. These high-tech repellents simply won't work. It's just like the rodents couldn't care less about the devices.
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.
