If you have a problem with wildlife in your Moore home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma and Moore, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Cleveland County Animal Services: (405) 793-5190
Wildlife X Team specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Oklahoma also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Wildlife X Team 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 405-694-4822 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife X Team is a full-service Moore wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Moore pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife X Team 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.
Moore wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma law. We offer Moore raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife X Team. 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 Moore 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 Moore 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 Moore rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Oklahoma 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 Moore pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Moore 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 Moore trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Moore 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 X Team does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife X Team. 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 X Team also provides dead animal removal in Moore. 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 Moore snake removal - most of the snakes in Oklahoma are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Moore. And remember, we are a private business, not Cleveland County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (405) 793-5190. Cleveland 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.
Moore Wildlife Tip #1:
Do Skunks Jump?
Skunks are altogether rather skittish creatures, prone to nervousness and with a tendency to avoid confrontation. They don't normally try to be a bother when it comes to humans, but sometimes they end up in weird places looking for food and shelter. This circumstance tends to make them quite the nuisance, and their inclination to spray when scared or threatened gives them quite the bad reputation. So, how can you avoid this negativity completely? Why, by keeping all the skunks at bay, of course! Fences and repellants are particularly effective, but there are certain things you should know about skunks before you start investing in preventative measures.
Skunks Can Climb, Jump, And Dig
Though not at terrifyingly adept as their rat rodent counterparts in terms of physical agility, skunks are perfectly capable of resorting to athleticism in order to fend off starvation or avoid predators. Striped skunks, which are the most popular and common to North America, have long claws and prehensile digits that enable them to climb relatively well. They climb chain link fences with gusto, but wooden fences and the like are less inviting. Skunks won't climb trees-they claws are not sharp enough to penetrate the bark and provide a stable foothold. They can jump, however, when the situation calls for it. Usually they don't jump more than two feet high, but with a little agility and the right conditions, they can end up scaling much higher obstructions. Their biggest physical threat to your preventative measures, however, is actually their cunning ability to dig. They are well-known for digging under the fences that have been put in place by concerned homeowners.
Skunks Don't Actually Spray That Often
If you're feeling nervous about installing a fence that also protrudes into the ground to prevent skunks from all possible athletic angles because you're scared of being sprayed, you should cease your worrying. First and foremost, it is important to note that skunk spray is not toxic or hazardous. It's unpleasant, and it can be really demoralizing, but it is certainly not life-threatening or even particularly malicious. If you get it in your eyes, you should flush it out with water immediately, but that is the worst possible outcome. To be fair, though, skunks do not spray unless they feel like they are in extreme and immediate danger. They do not have a limitless supply of their spray, so they conserve it for when things are particularly dire.
