If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Ponca City 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 Ponca City, and I recommend the following:
Wildlife X Team
Cell Phone: 580-215-6357
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Osage County Animal Services: (580) 767-0401
Wildlife X Team 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 X Team 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 580-215-6357
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 Oklahoma and Osage 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
Wildlife X Team is a full-service Ponca City wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Ponca City pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife X Team 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.
Ponca City 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 Ponca City raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife X Team. 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 Ponca 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 Ponca 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 Ponca City 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 Ponca City pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Ponca 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 Ponca City trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Ponca 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. Wildlife X Team does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife X Team. 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.

. 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 X Team
also provides dead animal removal in Ponca 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 Ponca City 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 Ponca City. And remember, we are a private business, not Osage County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (580) 767-0401.
Osage County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Ponca City Wildlife Tip #1:How Long Does it Take to Remove Raccoons in a Building?
It is miserable to drift off to sleep at night just to be awakened by a loud scratching or scraping noise coming from your attic or walls. The usual invasion of raccoons is a mother about to give birth or a mother that has given birth or a mother with a litter of 3 or 4 newborns.
How do raccoons get in the house?
Raccoons are on the lookout for weaknesses in a home's exterior, especially where there are joints. Mother raccoons really like chimney bottoms. They find it a cozy and comfortable place to nurse their young. They have easy access from the top and like to nest on the damper of your fireplace. The areas around plumbing pipes can also provide access to the attic. Usually, there are rubber mats around the pipes to seal the roof. However, the raccoons come equipped with the tools they need to destroy the mat and get into the attic through that space. Houses have roof-soffit intersections where the soffit and the roof meet. The soffits are often made of aluminum or plastic, which the raccoons can use their shoulders to open. Vents are placed on roofs to allow circulation of air in the attic. Since these vents are made of plastic or aluminum, the raccoons have the strength to easily destroy them. The roof edge is another port of entry for raccoons into homes. It is very important for homeowners to keep these areas repaired at all times. These areas of houses deal with all the weather related issues of the year and are prone to rotting.
Why is important to remove raccoons?
As referenced above, raccoons make irritating noises with their scratching and scraping. They stink. There are pee and poop in your attic in the heat of the summer. They carry many diseases. They cause destruction by chewing everything they find.
How long does it take to remove raccoons?
The quickest and easiest way to remove raccoons is by baiting and trapping them. In many places, only licensed wildlife professionals can do this legally. It is usually easy to trap raccoons, but sometimes they are clever about avoiding the trap. There are times where the raccoons are in window wells or in other structures where they must be physically removed. This is dangerous, but the raccoon is caught instantly. The exterminator is trained and should trap with raccoons in a day or two. Often the exterminator will have to return to remove odors left behind by the raccoons.
