If you have a problem with wildlife in your Sandusky home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Ohio 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 Ohio and Sandusky, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Erie County Animal Services: (419) 627-5887?
Buckeye Wildlife Solutions specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Ohio also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Buckeye Wildlife Solutions 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 419-989-6488 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:
Buckeye Wildlife Solutions is a full-service Sandusky wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Sandusky pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Buckeye Wildlife Solutions 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.
Sandusky wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Ohio 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 Ohio law. We offer Sandusky raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Buckeye Wildlife Solutions. 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 Sandusky 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 Sandusky 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 Sandusky rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Ohio 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 Sandusky pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Sandusky 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 Sandusky trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Sandusky 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. Buckeye Wildlife Solutions does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Buckeye Wildlife Solutions. 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. Buckeye Wildlife Solutions also provides dead animal removal in Sandusky. 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 Sandusky snake removal - most of the snakes in Ohio are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Sandusky. And remember, we are a private business, not Erie County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (419) 627-5887?. Erie 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.
Sandusky Wildlife Tip #1:
What sort of bait catches a skunk? - When you want to trap that pesky skunk that has been causing a nuisance of itself in your yard, you want to do so in the shortest time frame possible. This means that choosing the right bait to encourage your little guy to hopefully get caught up in the trap is a very important factor that you will need to take into consideration. Think about it - if nothing catches the skunks eye, it is not going to go anywhere near the trap, is it? Skunks are scavengers by nature so in reality, you could probably chuck any number of things in the trap to work as a tasty lure, but as with most wild animals, there will be some foods that work better than others. In order to figure out what works for your skunk, you should take a look at what he is doing in your yard. Is he stealing your cat or dog food? Is he scrambling around in your fruit trees trying to steal your delicious fruits? Is he rooting through garbage can and making a mess? The answers to these questions will help you to identify the food that he loves, and in turn you can effectively use them as bait. For example, if you are constantly finding that your pet food has been stolen, these foods will more than likely work as bait. If he is more than happy to root through your garbage to get to leftover meats, they will be good enough for the traps. Skunks also love sweet, sugary food such as fruits, so maybe thrown a couple of kiwi fruits, a handful of strawberries, and an apple or two would work too.
Sandusky Wildlife Tip #2:
Coral snake - The coral snake is a beautiful snake of average size. It has a pattern of black, red, and yellow bands. Unlike all other North American vipers, the coral snake does not have a triangular head, slit-like pupils, or heat sensing pits. The coral snake's venom sacks are not attached to its fangs, another difference between it and conventional vipers. The venom used by this animal is neurotoxic, meaning it will cause a breakdown in the nervous system of the body, eventually ceasing heart and lung function. Most venomous snakes in North America use hemotoxic venom, a poison that affects living tissue around the site of the wound and throughout the bloodstream. Unfortunately, the coral snake's coloration makes it a prime target for young children. This is how most bites happen; the snake is not aggressive unless it is harassed. Because the coral snake's venom seeps into a wound from glands adjacent to the teeth, venom administration is dependent on the time the animal remains attached to its victim. It is not true that the coral snake must bite repeatedly. Multiple bites will facilitate more venom, but the snake can create the same effect by remaining attached to a single location.

Welcome to Ohio, the state where there aren't many mountains, but there are plenty of forests and fields for animals to enjoy. Not only does this state have a nice mixture of habitats, the landscape is generally universal when it comes to climate. Ohio does occasionally have a tornado, and it can have an earthquake or two, but most of the time the summers are hot and the winters are cold. This climate eliminates some of the heat-loving critters in the southern states, but it does keep those common creatures that live around homes comfortable.
The most common nuisance animals in Ohio are raccoons, snakes, bats, geese, swans, squirrels, woodpeckers, skunks, and opossums. Homes in this state are well-insulated against the cold winters, making them ideal locations of critters that like to climb into an attic. Rats are frequent visitors in the city areas, and homeowners without rats usually have a mouse or two. People living closer to nature, or those with an urban raccoon issue, sometimes find the animals up in the attic. This can be particularly problematic, especially because most raccoons in an attic have a littler of babies nearby. While not as common, the occasional opossum will also invade a home in Ohio from time to time.
Coyotes and black bears rule the food chain in this state, though the bears are less of a nuisance than the intelligent canines. Coyotes will hunt in packs, picking off livestock or entering suburbs where they feed on pets and harass small children. A determined coyote will even climb a fence if it is hungry enough to want the pet inside the yard. The black bears are nuisances mostly at campgrounds or in places where people leave garbage out overnight. The bear is an extremely strong animal, and a secured garbage can lid won't be enough to deter these predators.
In the river valleys, Ohio has a number of industrious beavers, otters, and muskrats. Homeowners living near streams may find themselves suddenly flooded due to a recently constructed dam. For the most part, muskrat concerns belong to the county. Government officials need to worry about dike walls being compromised by the burrowing muskrat. Due to the decent amount of precipitation this state receives annually, semi-aquatic animals tend to thrive in Ohio.
You can always call Buckeye Wildlife Solutions, any time of day, at 419-989-6488, for a price quote for Sandusky wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Sandusky, OH.
