Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Sandy City, UT

Sandy City Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Sandy 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 Sandy City, and I recommend the following:

Complete Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 801-758-5670

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Salt Lake County Animal Services: (801) 352-4450



Complete Wildlife Removal specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Utah also has a documented problem with bats in buildings, and Complete Wildlife Removal 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 801-758-5670 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 Utah and Salt Lake 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


Complete Wildlife Removal is a full-service Sandy City wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Sandy 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.

  Sandy 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 Sandy 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 Sandy 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 Sandy 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 Sandy 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 Sandy City pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Sandy 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 Sandy City trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Sandy 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 Sandy 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 Sandy 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 Sandy City. And remember, we are a private business, not Salt Lake County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (801) 352-4450. Salt Lake County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Sandy City Wildlife Tip #1:
How Big Do Raccoons Get?

Before going ahead to look for most favorable method to keep raccoons out of your property, you should make sure that you understand the average body size. Knowing the likely average body size of raccoons can help you in your choice of humane and inhumane trap for the animal. Raccoon size depends largely on lots of factors including the age, the sex and even the health. A healthy adult male raccoons are always bigger in body size than the female counterpart. So, you should always find out the gender of the raccoon you are dealing with so as to know the likely body size to select the trap that will give you what you want.

Things You Must Know About Raccoon Body Size

The body size and weight of raccoon always differ from one to another. But, there is always average weight you should have in mind while dealing with raccoon issue. Male adult raccoons are known to be up to 3.5 to 9 kg. They are known to be up to 15-20 percent heavier than their female. That is why you should always consider getting trap made with stronger material while dealing with male raccoon infestation in your property. The size of raccoon is known to be up to small dog size.

The Average Female Raccoons Size You Should Know

One more thing you should know about raccoons is that they usually grow up to 23 to 37 inches, which is about 60 to 95 centimeters. As for the weight, they usually weight up to 4 to about 23lbs. But, their body size as well as weight is dependents on some important factors like their availability of foods, the season of the year and others.

The Average Male Raccoon Size

Have you spotted small dogs before? That is exactly the average size of fully grown adult male raccoon. Most of them even grow bigger and weight more than others. The raccoons in places with large availability of foods will tend to grow bigger than the one in the place with less food availability. These are the possible things to put into consideration before talking about body size and weight of raccoon.

How to Select Raccoon Trap Size in the Market

Before going ahead to select raccoon trap size, you should consider whether you are going for the male or the female raccoons. Also, consider the possible food availability in the area you find yourself in order to decide the likely body size of raccoon in that area.

Sandy City Wildlife Tip #2:


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.
