If you have a problem with wildlife in your Pine Bluff home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Arkansas 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 Arkansas and Pine Bluff, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Jefferson County Animal Services: 870-543-5136
D & G Varmint Control specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Arkansas also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and D & G Varmint 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 501-436-4995 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:
D & G Varmint Control is a full-service Pine Bluff wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Pine Bluff pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. D & G Varmint 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.
Pine Bluff wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Arkansas 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 Arkansas law. We offer Pine Bluff raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at D & G Varmint 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 Pine Bluff 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 Pine Bluff 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 Pine Bluff rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Arkansas 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 Pine Bluff pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Pine Bluff 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 Pine Bluff trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Pine Bluff 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. D & G Varmint Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by D & G Varmint 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. D & G Varmint Control also provides dead animal removal in Pine Bluff. 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 Pine Bluff snake removal - most of the snakes in Arkansas are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Pine Bluff. And remember, we are a private business, not Jefferson County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 870-543-5136. Jefferson 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.
Pine Bluff Wildlife Tip #1:
What pest control company handles unwanted nuisance wild animals? - Do you have a problem with a rather pesky unwanted nuisance wild animal? If you do, there is no need to panic, you just need to call the professionals, and in this case, you are going to want to look for a pest control company or a wildlife control expert. Of course, you could always try and catch the critter yourself, but unless you are willing to do your research, there is a good chance that you will not be successful. Thankfully, with a little bit of research, you will find plenty of wildlife control companies and professionals in your area, and all you need to do is have a look around. The phone book may prove to be helpful; as will be the internet, but there will be a few things that you will need to take a look for: Firstly, have a look around the company's website and also on the search engine for reviews of the services they have to offer. A bad review will not always mean a bad service, of course, but if there are a few, it may be wise to look elsewhere. You will find that there is more than one way to skin a cat, as the old saying goes, and you will want to find the right person to deal with your problem in the right manner. Secondly, what does the company actually offer with their services? Some companies will offer a full service which will normally include the trapping and removal of your unwanted nuisance wild animal problem, as well as a cleanup operation to remove urine and feces, as well as blocking all holes and entrances to avoid the problem from being a reoccurring one. Some other companies however, will only offer some of these services, and they may not always be the best choice. Lastly, take a look around for prices - some companies may offer you a good deal, but you may not find that the service will be right for you. At the same time, a more expensive service doesn't always guarantee complete success.
Pine Bluff Wildlife Tip #2:
What Can You Buy To Drive Away Wild animal Under The Shed - Having an wild animal living under the shed is probably one of the most frustrating things of all for many gardeners, and they will want to get rid of the animal as soon as possible. This is why some people will go to their local hardware store to see what wild animal repellents are available to drive the animal out, and there are plenty of products that claim to be able to drive away wild animals. However, there are also a number of different home remedies that people can use, and many of the ingredients for these are also commonly available and can often be bought from a general store. Unfortunately, the reality with all of these products is that there is no reliable wild animal repellent that has been discovered, and this means that many people will actually be wasting their money on these items. Wild animals have only recently become established over recent centuries in North America, and there are no natural predators for these animals on the continent. Because the majority of repellents work by replicating a predator's scent, this simply doesn't work when it comes to getting rid of wild animals, which is why people will have to look for a different solution to the problem.
Arkansas Wildlife Information:
Arkansas State bird: Mockingbird
State mammal: White-tailed deer
State insect: European honeybee
Arkansas, with its rolling hills, areas of flat plains and fertile soil, is known as 'the natural state'. It is home to a number of impressive landmarks, one of which being the Crowley Ridge, a region of foothills dissecting the Delta plain. The plain is otherwise flat, and the Crowley Ridge is remarkably distinct from a bird's eye view. Though much of the region is flat farmland, the northwestern area of the state is home to the Ozark Mountains, the only major mountain range between the Rockies and the Appalachians. The Ozark Mountains are filled with caves, making them ideal for supporting the state's 16 different species of bats. The summers in Arkansas are warm and humid, and the winters can be very dry but cool. Because of the elevations differences around the state, Arkansas can see significant snowfalls during the winter months.
The state, despite its renowned landmarks and preserved areas of wilderness, once had few large animals that called the place home. Originally, before massive efforts to more toward agriculture, black bears and elk were common. Humans almost wiped both species out, but with intervention from the state, both species have started to thrive once more. The wild hog, which is not native to Arkansas, has help the propagation of another species-the coyote. Coyotes were once considered rare in Arkansas, but with an influx of hogs and rodent species, the canines now have substantial populations in every county of the state. Pocket gophers, one of the most common nuisance animals in this region, are also on the list of food species for intermediate predators.
White-tailed deer, though very common, are not often on the list of prey animals for black bears, coyotes, or bobcats.
Nuisance critters are common in Arkansas. Because bats as so numerous in this state, it's inevitable that homeowners will eventually find bats roosting in an attic or an old barn. Most of the species prefer the quiet of mountain caves, but a human dwelling will do in a pinch. The caves are also home to endangered crayfish and the Ozark cavefish. Mount Magazine, in the Quachita Mountains, is the highest point in the state and is also home to a rare species of terrestrial snail.
Other common nuisance animals in this area of the country include raccoons, opossums, rats, mice, squirrels, foxes, rabbits, moles, skunks, and snakes.
