If you have a problem with wildlife in your Mustang 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 Mustang, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Canadian County Animal Services: (405) 297-3100
Wildlife Removal 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 Removal 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 405-708-7080 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 Removal is a full-service Mustang wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Mustang pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife 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.
Mustang 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 Mustang raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife 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 Mustang 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 Mustang 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 Mustang 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 Mustang pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Mustang 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 Mustang trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Mustang 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 does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife 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. Wildlife Removal also provides dead animal removal in Mustang. 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 Mustang 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 Mustang. And remember, we are a private business, not Canadian County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (405) 297-3100. Canadian 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.
Mustang Wildlife Tip #1:
What health risk is associated with not cleaning up your attic after an animal? - When it comes to wild animals, you can never really be too careful, especially when you take into consideration the sheer amount of diseases that the animal can bring along with it. Although rabies is not the usual concern with humans versus animals, there are still diseases, pathogens and parasites that you will need to be wary of, and in many cases, studies have long since shown that you don't even need to be face to face with the animal, or even in contact with it, to catch any number of nasty bugs that you certainly wouldn't want! It has been shown that you can catch diseases from wild animals like the animal in other ways than mentioned above. For example, the skin and fur cells left behind can easily transfer nasty bugs, as well as the urine and poop and even scent markings that have been left behind by the animal from scent glands on the chest, chin and anus in order to mark territories. There are so many nasty things that you can get from an animal that it just doesn't make sense to ignore the droppings and mess that the animal will leave behind. In most cases, it would be highly advisable to call upon the help of a professional to ensure that the job has indeed been done properly. Things like fleas, mites and ticks can easily be transferred, especially to family pets, and that is before you even begin to think about really nasty diseases such as toxoplasmosis, TB, leptospirosis and also things such as roundworm.
Mustang Wildlife Tip #2:
What type of food goes in opossum traps? - Let's be honest - there is nothing at all desirable about having a wild animal such as an opossum living in your home or on your land, and although calling the local wildlife guys is the better choice of all that you have, it is not always something that will be readily available to you, either because of price or for other reasons, so it makes sense to learn about the things that are going to make your life a little easier. Just one of the things that will prove to make your trapping quest a more successful one is to pick the right bait. Now, opossums are scavengers so they are not normally picky when it comes to food, so essentially, you could probably put pretty much anything half edible down and they will have a good old munch. As with most animals of course, there will be certain foods that they will lust after, and these are always the perfect ones to start with. If you have a cat or dog living in your home then you are in luck! All you need to do is to use their pet food in the traps that you are setting, and you should successfully catch an opossum! These animals seem to love pet food, especially the wet, canned varieties, so if you have this to hand, throw it in the traps. If you don't have a pet cat or dog, or the pet food thing hasn't appeared to have worked as yet, try the things that you would normally throw in your garbage can. They love to root around in the stuff that you throw away, so before you look at throwing away those leftovers from your Sunday roast, why not consider putting them in the traps and letting them come running!

Oklahoma is a land filled with lush grasslands, absent of tall mountains. The state does have numerous mountain ranges, but most of these are mesa-like, surrounding canyons and winding rivers. Of all the states in the country, Oklahoma is one of the most diverse when it comes to habitats. Though only 24 percent of the region is forested, there are areas of wetlands, grasslands, woodlands, and semi-arid zones. The state sits in the midst of the Great Plains, and it is subject to severe weather throughout the year. The weather is mostly warm and wet, though temperature differences can be significant between the north and south parts of the state.
Being in the central Great Plains, it's not surprising to learn that bison still roam this region. Rampant slaughter of the large grazing animals during the early years of the country almost wiped the species out. Now, as a protected animal, bison once again roam the grasslands along with herds of elk and white-tailed deer. There are not many large predators in the state. Black bears are the largest, but they rarely go after something as large as a deer, being content to forage for berries and insects. Coyotes are the primary predator and are scattered around the region. Wolves were once native to the state, but the last wolf in Oklahoma was seen back in the 1930's.
A state with abundant grassland will be a state with an abundance of small animals. The wide spaces are ideal for prairie dogs, and these little creatures can prove very detrimental to farmers and their equipment. Other nuisance animals are bats, skunks, rats, mice, squirrels, and armadillos.
The state has a fair portion of wetlands in the south where semi-aquatic animals spend their time. The entirety of Oklahoma is fed by some 500 rivers and streams. It is the state with the most man-made reservoirs. In the wetlands, cypress trees conceal the American alligator, turtles, snakes, birds, and lizards. A common nuisance animal, the raccoon, is particularly fond of the swamp lands, sneaking in to steal eggs from birds and lizards alike. State conservationists looking to monitor the wetlands pay close attention to the raccoon population. If the raccoons vanish, something is wrong in the ecosystem.
