If you have a problem with wildlife in your Minocqua Rhinelander 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 Minocqua Rhinelander, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Oneida County Animal Services: 715-362-5992

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife Removal Northern Wisconsin is a full-service Minocqua Rhinelander wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Minocqua Rhinelander pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Removal Northern Wisconsin 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.
Minocqua Rhinelander 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 Minocqua Rhinelander raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Removal Northern Wisconsin. 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 Minocqua Rhinelander 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 Minocqua Rhinelander 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 Minocqua Rhinelander 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 Minocqua Rhinelander pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Minocqua Rhinelander 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 Minocqua Rhinelander trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Minocqua Rhinelander 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. Wildlife Removal Northern Wisconsin does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Removal Northern Wisconsin. 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. Wildlife Removal Northern Wisconsin also provides dead animal removal in Minocqua Rhinelander. 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 Minocqua Rhinelander 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 Minocqua Rhinelander. And remember, we are a private business, not Oneida County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 715-362-5992. Oneida 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.
Minocqua Rhinelander Wildlife Tip #1:
What is the price for nuisance wildlife removal? - Having a wild animal in your home or on your property is going to be a stressful situation, especially if you have other pets or kids to think about, and the last thing that you are going to want to have to concern yourself with is the cost of having the creature removed professionally, especially if you are already on a budget. That's the thing about wildlife control experts - different companies and even different individuals will often charge completely different prices, and it can be hard to know where to begin, or what the best approach for hiring one is to take. One thing that it is very important to remember is that a higher price won't always mean a better service. At the same time, the cheapest quote may seem like a good idea, but are you really going to get everything that you expect from the people or person that you are using? Rather than focusing all of your attentions on the prices that these people have to offer, you should rather look at the services that they promise to you, as well as testimonials from other clients, happy or otherwise, that would suggest whether or not they do their job well. There are a few things that you will want to look out for when hiring a wildlife control expert to remove the nuisance wildlife or other wild animal from your home. For example, as well as safely removing the creature from your land in a humane manner, you will want to make sure that the creature is being relocated in the best place possible. You are also going to want make sure that the expert educates you on how to avoid further problems with nuisance wildlife and other wild animals, and this could mean the professional(s) blocking up holes that could be used as entrances by the animals. You should also ask whether or not they remove feces and urine, especially if you are not keen on doing this particular task yourself!
Minocqua Rhinelander Wildlife Tip #2:
Snake feces - Snake feces are not long but often globular piles of liquid-esc mush. The high moisture content of the feces is due to the fact that snakes excrete both solid and liquid waste from the same orifice. This opening at the base of the tail, called the cloaca, releases solid droppings as infrequently as the snake eats. Snake excrement can often be identified by the white cap of urea present in the sample. Beyond that, there are few outstanding characteristics to point fingers at the snake. Like all strict carnivores, snakes have very little fiber in their diets. This lack of filler makes their stool soft and full of fur, bones, and teeth. You can often tell the size of a snake by the remnants in the feces. A larger animal will be able to eat birds and rodents; smaller snakes must stick to insects and amphibians. Because of how infrequently snakes eliminate solid waste, it is very uncommon to find the feces on your property. Frequent sightings of waste that matches this description may be the result of another animal on the property. Make sure you can eliminate the possibility of other nuisance animals.
Wisconsin Wildlife Information:

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 Wildlife Removal Northern Wisconsin, any time of day, at 715-800-0220, for a price quote for Minocqua Rhinelander wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Minocqua Rhinelander, WI.
