If you have a problem with wildlife in your Monticello Delphi home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Indiana 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 Indiana and Monticello Delphi, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Carroll County Animal Services: (765) 497-3141

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife Removal Northern Indiana is a full-service Monticello Delphi wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Monticello Delphi pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Removal Northern Indiana 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.
Monticello Delphi wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Indiana 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 Indiana law. We offer Monticello Delphi raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Removal Northern Indiana. 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 Monticello Delphi 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 Monticello Delphi 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 Monticello Delphi rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Indiana 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 Monticello Delphi pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Monticello Delphi 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 Monticello Delphi trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Monticello Delphi 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 Indiana does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Removal Northern Indiana. 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 Indiana also provides dead animal removal in Monticello Delphi. 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 Monticello Delphi snake removal - most of the snakes in Indiana are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Monticello Delphi. And remember, we are a private business, not Carroll County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (765) 497-3141. Carroll 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.
Monticello Delphi 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!
Monticello Delphi Wildlife Tip #2:
Skunk catchers - If you have a skunk that is harassing you and your family, there are ways to take care of the situation on your own. You can go down to the garden center and pick up a critter trap. With some research, setting it up in the yard might just do the trick. You will, of course, have to think about handling the cage afterward and then driving the animal to a relocation area. If this doesn't sit well with you, there is a much more efficient option: Hire a professional. The nice thing about a professional wildlife company is that you, the homeowner, can remain hands-free. The agency will come to your home and tour the property, identifying all the problem areas and making recommendations. They will also detail the plan for catching the skunk and make sure you understand the process. More likely than not, a professional company will also have the proper equipment to set up, eliminating the need for you to go out and buy anything. Best of all, when it comes time to relocate the animal, the expert will already have tried and true relocation areas, or the skunk will be humanely euthanized.
Indiana Wildlife Information:
Indiana State bird: Northern cardinal
State fish: Largemouth bass
Indiana is one of the larger states in the country, and it was sculpted millions of years ago by receding glaciers. The part of the state formed in this manner is full of rich soil, ideal for farming. Because the state is primarily rolling hills and flat plains, agriculture is the main focus of many people living in the region. Not surprisingly, farming brings with it a slew of animals that like to live off of crops. Probably the most detrimental of these species is the prairie dog. With an extensive network of tunnels, the smart mammal can inadvertently compromise structural integrity of buildings or cause machines to get stuck out in fields. If farmers are really unlucky, livestock, like cows, will get their legs stuck in the holes. A cow with a broken legs rarely recovers and lives another day.
But prairie dogs aren't the only creatures on the lookout for fields of crops. Wild hogs are problematic in Indiana. The large combative pigs only have a few natural predators: coyotes and cougars. The mountain lion won't eat a pig a day; if anything, it might eat a pig a week. Such a limited diet does nothing for population control. Coyotes are more apt to eat a number of pigs, but the hogs are so fierce, it would take a sizeable pack to run one down. Humans have been incorporated into the process of controlling these swine, and open seasons for hunting are common.
If the hogs and the prairie dogs don't get the farmers, the birds just might. Crop fields are favorite places for flocks of birds to congregate and eat seed. Most fields are so large and densely planted that a few crows or geese can't hurt them, but private farmers can lose an entire crop to over-zealous geese.
Even though there are no real mountains in this state, there are a number of deep stream ravines. These regions have allowed beavers to flourish, and the more pools the beavers create, the more animals like muskrats, blue herons, and frogs will be seen.
Indiana only has four venomous snakes, two of which are species of rattle snakes. The other two venomous snakes are copperheads and cottonmouths. There are 30 other non-venomous snake species in the state.
Raccoons, skunks, opossums, and squirrels are also abundant.
