Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Oro Valley, AZ

Oro Valley Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Oro Valley home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Arizona 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 Oro Valley, and I recommend the following:

Diamondback Wildlife Control
Cell Phone: 520-999-2121

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Pima County Animal Services: (520) 327-6088



Diamondback Wildlife Control specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Arizona also has a documented problem with bats in buildings, and Diamondback Wildlife Control 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 520-999-2121 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
    - Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
    - Fully Arizona and Pima County licensed and insured
    - Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
    - Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
    - Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
    - Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste


Diamondback Wildlife Control is a full-service Oro Valley wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Oro Valley pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Diamondback Wildlife Control 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.

  Oro Valley wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Arizona 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 Arizona law. We offer Oro Valley raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Diamondback Wildlife Control. 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 Oro Valley 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 Oro Valley 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 Oro Valley rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
  Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Arizona 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 Oro Valley pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Oro Valley 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 Oro Valley trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Oro Valley 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. Diamondback Wildlife Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Diamondback Wildlife Control. 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. Diamondback Wildlife Control also provides dead animal removal in Oro Valley. 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 Oro Valley snake removal - most of the snakes in Arizona are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Oro Valley. And remember, we are a private business, not Pima County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (520) 327-6088. Pima County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Oro Valley Wildlife Tip #1:
How Long Does It Take Rats or Mice to Die after Eating Poison?

Have you ever tried it killing rats or mice in your property? This is actually one of the biggest problems of some homeowners. If your next step is to push the green blocks of poison for rats into the ceiling space, it would also be a good idea. Even if rat poison is bad for wildlife and environment, it is still the tactic that is considered by a lot of people. But sometimes, this left the rats to scurry into the far corner of the space of the ceiling and die.

The Answer

How long does it take rats or mice to die after eating poison? It will take about several hours before it takes the rats or mice to die after eating poison. There was once an individual who confessed of killing the rats in the basement ceiling on a particular day. The next day, he found out that the entire basement started to smell of rat urine. There was a new odor of a dead rat.

After Two Weeks of Leaving it not decomposed

The next few weeks, the gnawing will stop. The house has been filled with the giant flies. It was then that the dead rats have become a main breeding ground for them. The blowflies are medium-sized to the large flies. Dozens of them are seen buzzing around the kitchen. That was when he realized he needed a weapon.

No Specific Time

So far, there is no specific time mentioned in textbooks and all other essential sources about how long it will take the rats or mice to die. It will still vary by products used to kill the rats or mice. If you want to be specific further, it will be essential to catch one and keep it inside a cage. You could give it the poison and you could count the hours until it has finally died.

Remove the Dead Rats or Mice

In all these, you need to keep in mind that you need to remove the dead rats or mice effectively and properly. This will help you in order to keep your property or place nice and clean. You would never want to witness flies buzzing around all throughout the days. It will also help if you hire experts in the field of dead pet removal. They will offer you the best dead pet removal service that complement the money paid for them!

Oro Valley Wildlife Tip #2:


Arizona Wildlife Information:

Arizona State bird: Cactus wren
State mammal: Ringtail cat
State reptile: Arizona ridge-nosed rattlesnake
State amphibian: Arizona tree frog
State fish: Arizona trout
State insect: Two-tailed swallowtail

Arizona is most known for its beautiful desert regions filled with canyons and rock formations accented by cacti of varying height. What many people don't realize is that Arizona has its fair share of forests-over 20 percent of the state is woodland. These thick forests of pine and spruce trees are mostly in what is known as the Colorado Plateau. The drier regions are home to just as much wildlife, and there is no region in Arizona where animals are completely missing from the environment. For the most part, the summers in the state are hot and the winters are mild, but some of the regions with mountains and canyons can experience colder weather and even snow. There are ski resorts in northern Arizona.

State landmarks like the Grand Canyon make fantastic havens for wildlife. The water in the canyon gives life to all kinds of species including bald eagles, mountain lions, wolves, coyotes, rattlesnakes, and golden eagles. It also shelters a number of endangered species. The desert tortoise, big horned sheep, California brown pelican, spotted bat, and Southwest river otter are all on the protected list in this state.

Because of the diverse terrain, Arizona has all four of the major predators in the United States: black bears, coyotes, wolves, and mountain lions. Bobcats are also common, but they are known as "wildcats" by the residents of the state.

While Arizona still has raccoons, it also has a very raccoon-like creature called the ringtail cat. This animal is not part of the cat family, and it looks more like a cross between a raccoon and a fox. These solitary creatures live in cliff caves within the arid and semi-arid regions of the state. They have a diet of scorpions, insects, eggs, and small mammals.

Grazing creatures are also common, especially within the canyons where vegetation thrives. Arizona has mule deer, white-tailed deer, elk, and big horn sheep.

Pest animals are numerous in this state, just as in any other. The forested regions provide a good home for squirrels, bats, porcupines, skunks, raccoons, and mice. Another potential pest animal in Arizona is the javelina, a small wild pig. As with any location, homeowners have to worry about rats, which can survive in most regions of the world.

You can always call Diamondback Wildlife Control, any time of day, at 520-999-2121, for a price quote for Oro Valley wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Oro Valley, AZ.
