Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Rexburg, ID

Rexburg Wildlife Animal Control

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

Allstate Animal Control
Cell Phone: 208-293-8828

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Madison County Animal Services: (208) 359-3005

Allstate Animal Control specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Idaho also has a documented problem with bats in buildings, and Allstate Animal 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 208-293-8828 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 Idaho and Madison 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

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

  Rexburg wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Idaho 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 Idaho law. We offer Rexburg raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Allstate Animal 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 Rexburg 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 Rexburg 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 Rexburg rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
  Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Idaho 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 Rexburg pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Rexburg 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 Rexburg trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Rexburg 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. Allstate Animal Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Allstate Animal 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. Allstate Animal Control also provides dead animal removal in Rexburg. 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 Rexburg snake removal - most of the snakes in Idaho are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Rexburg. And remember, we are a private business, not Madison County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (208) 359-3005. Madison County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Rexburg Wildlife Tip #1:
What should I do with an armadillo after I catch it?

Armadillos are known to dig elaborate burrows. They can have up to twelve entrances. This is often done in the yards of people. This can lead to the collapse of gardens and porches. As humans encroach on the habitat of wild animals they are forced into urban areas. Armadillos are naturally inclined to live in moderate temperatures. They need ground that is easy to dig through. They also need a steady supply of water as they are unable to store much. They are nocturnal creatures that are active during the day.

How to catch them

1. The best way to catch an armadillo is by using a regular humane cage trap. This will enable you to release the armadillo somewhere safe. You will need to make sure what the legislation in your state is regarding catching and releasing nuisance animals.
2. You can also use a snare to catch them. This is a less humane way of doing it but the difficulty in catching an armadillo often leads people to desperate measures.
3. Kill traps. Kill traps very seldom kills the animal immediately. They are often left to suffer or bleed to death.

What to do after catching an armadillo

If you have decided to catch the armadillo in a cage, you will need to consider what to do next. Depending on where you live you might be able to relocate it to a public park or forest. You can place the cage in your car and cover it with a towel or blanket. Once you reach the area where you want to release it just place the cage on the ground and open the door. The armadillo should be able to walk out. Make sure that you do not release it in an area where you are placing it in harm's way.

You might not be allowed to release it in your state. In some states, it is illegal to relocate a wild animal. You may be allowed to trap it, but you will be expected to kill it once it has been caught. Make sure that you are well versed in the law regarding this before you decide to catch it.

Other options

Your other option is to phone a professional. They will trap the armadillo and will euthanize it. This won't leave you with an animal carcass to get rid of.

Rexburg Wildlife Tip #2:

Idaho Wildlife Information:

Idaho State bird: Mountain bluebird
State mammal: Appaloosa horse
State insect: Monarch butterfly
State fish: Cutthroat trout

A state's agriculture is a big part of its identity in the country, but when it comes to Idaho, potatoes aren't the only thing that the state should be recognized for. Idaho is actually one of the Rocky Mountain states, meaning it has a vast stretch of the infamous range within its boundaries. As a mountainous state, it has an abundance of valleys and raging rivers. Much of the waterways are used for commercial rafting. Not only does Idaho have a claim to fame as far as beautiful mountain peaks go, it has the nation's largest expanse of unadulterated wilderness, the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Area. If that wasn't enough, the region boasts the deepest gorge in the United States as well, Hells Canyon. The climate in the state is just as random as the landscape, and the western region experiences significant moisture from the Pacific Ocean. This makes for warm, humid summers and cool, wet winters. The same cannot be said for the rest of the region, which can see considerably drier weather due to elevation.

Animals in the state consist of those loving the valleys and those that love the mountains. Idaho is one of the only states not to have a significant population of black bears. Instead, the state is known for its grizzly bears and mountain lions. The mountain lions are far more reclusive than the bears, and it's been said that one lion has a territory range of 80 square miles. That doesn't mean territories don't overlap, but it does mean you're more likely to see a grizzly bear in the woods. Unlike the black bears in the rest of the nation, grizzlies tend to be more aggressive and more inclined to hunt their dinners. A hungry grizzly won't think twice about harassing a mother mountain lion for her young. If push comes to shove, the mountain lion can win against the bear, but both animals will come out of the deal badly shaken.

Nuisance animals in this state are abundant for the same reason other animals flourish. The region sees issues with small animals like rats, mice, raccoons, opossums, otters, beavers, squirrels, chipmunks, and coyotes. Due to the large expanse of national parks, much of the larger wildlife stays clear of humans.

You can always call Allstate Animal Control, any time of day, at 208-293-8828, for a price quote for Rexburg wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Rexburg, ID.
