If you have a problem with wildlife in your The Village 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 Oklahoma and The Village, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Oklahoma County Animal Services: (405) 751-9518
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 405-293-4060 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife X Team is a full-service The Village wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular The Village 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.
The Village 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 The Village 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 The Village 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 The Village 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 The Village 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 The Village pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is The Village 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 The Village trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a The Village 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. 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. Wildlife X Team also provides dead animal removal in The Village. 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 The Village 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 The Village. And remember, we are a private business, not Oklahoma County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (405) 751-9518. Oklahoma 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.
The Village Wildlife Tip #1:
Why Do Armadillos Dig?
There are so many creatures in nature, and each one of them has unique habits. Some features of these animals are the same whereas others vary by a great extent. When we talk about the digging habits of mammals, armadillos are not an exception in doing so. These creatures keep on destroying the ground wherever they go. There are so many reasons why armadillos prefer to dig holes; some of these are listed as below:
1. They prefer to create essential pathways underground. Whenever they need to run away from certain critical situations, they used these underground tunnels to run safely.
2. Armadillos prepare tunnels and nests to raise their young babies after birth. Note that the new-borns are completely dependent on their mother for care and food as well. In this situation, the mother armadillo takes complete responsibility to mane full comfort of their babies.
3. These burrows underground work like best shelters where armadillos can hide from predators and humans.
4. The major diet of armadillos is the insects that live in soil. Hence, whenever these creatures feel hungry, they start digging the ground to bring the worms and bugs out to meet their dietary requirements.
Experts reveal that armadillos need nutrients to manage a healthy body and they get these nutrients from insects and invertebrates found underground. Most of their eatables include ants, termites, earthworms and different types of bugs. Hence, whenever these creatures feel hungry, they start digging the ground to fill their empty stomach. Other than this, they need to stay protected from several types of predators, and the underground burrows are the best choice for this purpose. These shelters help armadillos to stay protected from all kind of threats like wild cats and coyotes. Note that, only these two animals are skilled enough to tear the hard shell of armadillos and can eat the flesh with ease. Whenever armadillos find these two predators around, they prefer to run away and hide in the holes underground. The common domestic animals are also big enemies of armadillos, so in order to stay safe from all these natural predators, armadillos need to dig deeper underground.
These burrows also help these animals to stay safe from disturbances caused by climate changes. They can also keep their babies safe underground and raise them while ensuring full comfort. Note that the newborn babies of armadillos are completely dependent on their mothers for food and care. In this situation, mothers make full efforts to keep their babies safe in the underground burrows. Right when the armadillo gets ready to implant her fertilized eggs, she starts digging the deep holes underground.
If you find a mother armadillo wondering here and there in your premises, it is important to take immediate steps to get rid of her. The best solution is to call a professional animal removal company as they are experienced enough to deal with the problem. They make use of one-way exclusion traps to capture the animal and will soon relocate it to any safe place.
The Village Wildlife Tip #2:
Oklahoma Wildlife Information:
Oklahoma State bird: Scissor-tailed flycatcher
State mammal: Bison
State reptile: Common collared lizard
State amphibian: North American bullfrog
State fish: White bass
State insect: European honeybee
Oklahoma is a land filled with lush grasslands, absent of tall mountains. The state does have numerous mountain ranges, but most of these are mesa-like, surrounding canyons and winding rivers. Of all the states in the country, Oklahoma is one of the most diverse when it comes to habitats. Though only 24 percent of the region is forested, there are areas of wetlands, grasslands, woodlands, and semi-arid zones. The state sits in the midst of the Great Plains, and it is subject to severe weather throughout the year. The weather is mostly warm and wet, though temperature differences can be significant between the north and south parts of the state.
Being in the central Great Plains, it's not surprising to learn that bison still roam this region. Rampant slaughter of the large grazing animals during the early years of the country almost wiped the species out. Now, as a protected animal, bison once again roam the grasslands along with herds of elk and white-tailed deer. There are not many large predators in the state. Black bears are the largest, but they rarely go after something as large as a deer, being content to forage for berries and insects. Coyotes are the primary predator and are scattered around the region. Wolves were once native to the state, but the last wolf in Oklahoma was seen back in the 1930's.
A state with abundant grassland will be a state with an abundance of small animals. The wide spaces are ideal for prairie dogs, and these little creatures can prove very detrimental to farmers and their equipment. Other nuisance animals are bats, skunks, rats, mice, squirrels, and armadillos.
The state has a fair portion of wetlands in the south where semi-aquatic animals spend their time. The entirety of Oklahoma is fed by some 500 rivers and streams. It is the state with the most man-made reservoirs. In the wetlands, cypress trees conceal the American alligator, turtles, snakes, birds, and lizards. A common nuisance animal, the raccoon, is particularly fond of the swamp lands, sneaking in to steal eggs from birds and lizards alike. State conservationists looking to monitor the wetlands pay close attention to the raccoon population. If the raccoons vanish, something is wrong in the ecosystem.
You can always call Wildlife X Team, any time of day, at 405-293-4060, for a price quote for The Village wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in The Village, OK.
