If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Park City home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Utah 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 Park City, and I recommend the following:
Complete Wildlife Removal

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:

- Fully Utah and Summit County licensed and insured

- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Complete Wildlife Removal is a full-service Park City wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Park City pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Complete 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.
Park City wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Utah 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 Utah law. We offer Park City raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Complete 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 Park City 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 Park City 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 Park City rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Utah 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 Park City pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Park City 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 Park City trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Park City 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. Complete Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Complete 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
. Complete Wildlife Removal
also provides dead animal removal in Park City. 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 Park City snake removal - most of the snakes in Utah are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Park City. And remember, we are a private business, not Summit County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (435) 336-3985.
Summit County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Park City Wildlife Tip #1:
How to use one-way exclusion funnels to remove groundhogs without trapping them
One-way exclusion funnels have been identified as the most effective ways of getting groundhogs out of your hoes without actually trapping them.
How they are made
The exclusion funnels can either be purchased from the market or they can be made at home; you can make the one way exclusion funnel using a hardware cloth. The cloth is then rolled to form a funnel shape; the end product should be a funnel with its points facing the inner side of the funnel. Once you have come up with the one way exclusion funnel, you have to know how and when to mount it. Ideally, it is the simplest form and easy to use tool that will help you get rid of groundhogs without actually trapping them.
You have to mount the one-way exclusion funnel directly on a building especially in holes that groundhogs use as their main entry/exit points.
How to use the exclusion funnel
First, you have to find entry points that groundhogs use to get into and out of the building; if there are multiple of them, ensure that you seal or block all of them but leave out only one. The main purpose of the one-way exclusion funnel is to remove these animals from the house and preventing them from returning that is why you have to be careful when sealing up all the possible entry/exit points.
Leave the trap at that entry point for a couple of hours if not overnight and ensure that you frequently check on it to immediately relocate the groundhog once it has been captured.
It is very easy to use these funnels to get rid of groundhogs but it is equally important to understand certain aspects before buying or making your own one-way exclusion funnel:
The size of the door matters a lot; it has to be the appropriate size in that once the groundhog has been trapped, it would be able to escape. Moreover, it should not be too tiny; in this case, it is likely to kill the groundhog through strangling which is an illegal act. The door should not be very large because the groundhog is likely to free itself once it has been captured. The condition of the surrounding has to be perfect. If the condition surrounding the exclusion funnel is not appropriate, chances of the groundhog invading your property once more are usually very high.
One way exclusion funnels are therefore one of the most effective techniques that will prevent the groundhogs from getting back into your property. They mainly drive these animals away; once the animals have been relocated, you have to ensure that you permanently seal up all the entry points keep them a bay.

Utah Wildlife Information:
Utah State bird: California gull
State mammal: Rocky Mountain elk
State fish: Bonneville cutthroat trout
State insect: European honey bee
Utah is one of the few states with enough of a variety in landscape to support multiple large and small animals. While the region tends to be warm and dry for the summer and cold and dry during the winter, some of the mountain regions receive ample snow. The snowfall is so good, in fact, that many of the ski resorts in the state are renowned for their light, powdery snow. The state is dry because of the placement of mountains in neighboring locations. These tall peaks create what is called a rainfall shadow, meaning most of the moisture is gone before it reaches mainland Utah. Much of the land is arid for this reason, with tall mesas and sandstone formations. Pine forests are lovely in the river valleys, and are another reason why the state can support so much life.
Utah has a number of large creatures walking through the wilderness. There are desert bighorn sheep, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, elk, moose, pronghorns, mule deer, bison, white-tailed deer, and mountain goats. These large grazers are accompanied by large predators include grizzly bears, black bears, mountain lions, and gray wolves. Smaller predators are also abundant, and Utah has both bobcats and Canadian lynx. Coyotes tend to be a presence in most of the nation, and Utah is no exception. While these canines won't compete with wolves for food, they have a wide variety of meal options in the desert areas and lower woodlands.
Small creatures abound in the warm, dry climate. The arid regions boast numerous reptiles, one of the most famous being the Gila monster. Gila monsters feed primarily on eggs from birds and other reptiles. Several species of rattlesnakes are common throughout the state. The snakes, accompanied by many non-venomous serpents, spend their time feeding on the more than adequate variety of rodents in Utah.
The region has small rodents like brush mice, black rats, cactus mice, kangaroo mice, desert shrews, and desert woodrats.
The deserts are home to a small rabbit called the pygmy rabbit, the result of an evolutionary shrinking process likely due to scarce water supply. The rabbit is just the first in a list of common nuisance animals including raccoons, ringtails, mice, squirrels, muskrats, nutria, and beavers.
