If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Overland Park home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Kansas 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 Overland Park, and I recommend the following:
Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc.
Cell Phone: 913-815-4090
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Johnson County Animal Services: 913-895-6300
Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc. specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Kansas also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc. 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 913-815-4090
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 Kansas and Johnson 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
Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc. is a full-service Overland Park wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Overland Park pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc. 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.
Overland Park wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Kansas 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 Kansas law. We offer Overland Park raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc.. 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 Overland Park 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 Overland Park 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 Overland Park rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Kansas 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 Overland Park pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Overland Park 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 Overland Park trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Overland Park 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. Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc. does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc.. 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
. Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc.
also provides dead animal removal in Overland Park. 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 Overland Park snake removal - most of the snakes in Kansas are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Overland Park. And remember, we are a private business, not Johnson County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 913-895-6300.
Johnson County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Overland Park 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!
Overland Park Wildlife Tip #2:
Snake poop images - Snake poop varies from serpent to serpent and even varies from one elimination to the next. There si no cookie-cutter picture of snake poop. If you are looking for a good resource to compare samples, many websites on the Internet will be able to help you out. More knowledgeable sites will be geared toward snake removal and identification. These websites are invaluable and can supply you with pictures, suggestions, and contact number for help if you should need it. If you are looking for a picture to help you identify the type of poop you have discovered in your yard, you may not find images as helpful as you would like. Snake poop can be very difficult to identify. It is often very liquid, and contains fur, bones, nails, and other indigestible items. There is often a characteristic white cap of urea in the sample, but this is not always visible. Snakes eliminate infrequently because they eat infrequently. Piles of fresh droppings all around the property will not likely be from a snake or from multiple snakes. And, despite the body structure of these reptiles, snake poop is not long and lean; it looks like poop from many other carnivores.
Kansas Wildlife Information:
Kansas State mammal: American bison
State reptile: Ornate box turtle
State amphibian: Barred tiger salamander
State insect: European honey bee
Kansas was once home to the highest number of Native American tribes in the United States (before it became the United States). Those tribes either lived in permanent locations along the river channels or were nomadic, hunting bison and following the herds. Wild bison are no longer present in Kansas, such was the complete devastation brought on by over-hunting and conversion of prairie into farmland. Approximately two-thirds of the state exists in the Great Plains, while the last third is essentially comprised of forests and gentle hills. Residents of the state call it 'flat as a pancake', and recent studies have proven them correct; Kansas is considered the flattest state in the country. While that point is debatable based on measuring techniques, it doesn't change the fact that most of the animals in this region are those that thrive in open spaces. Kansas is warm and wet as well as warm and dry, all depending on which area of the state you reside in. Snowfall is common, and severe weather is often a daily occurrence. Not only does Kansas suffer from violent thunderstorms, those storms often dredge up dangerous hail and tornados.
Like bison, other animals have been extirpated from Kansas including mountain lions, gray wolves, black bears, and grizzly bears. Now, the most prominent predators in the state are coyotes and bobcats. These mid-level predators have a variety of small animals to feast on, leaving the large grazers often off the radar.
Large animals in Kansas are elk, white-tailed deer, pronghorns, and mule deer. Moose were once native to the state but have since been extirpated. Wild hogs are also present, and these are the most common hooved animals that fall prey to the carnivores.
Pest animals are numerous because of the high number of rodents living in a grass-oriented region. Kansas has an abundance of mice and rats including deer mice, cotton rats, woodrats, grey squirrels, fox squirrels, pocket gophers and prairie dogs.
If the rodents don't get you, the other pest animals just might. This state has plenty of raccoons, armadillos, skunks, badgers, minks, foxes, rabbits, hares, snakes, and bats. In fact, there are 16 different species of bats living in Kansas, waiting for a home with a warm, dry attic to sneak into.
You can always call Catch-It Wildlife & Pest Control, Inc., any time of day, at 913-815-4090, for a price quote for Overland Park wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Overland Park, KS.
