If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Wichita home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Kansas 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 Wichita, and I recommend the following:
This Space Available
Cell Phone: ###-###-####
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Sedgwick County Animal Services: (316) 838-9623
This Space Available specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Kansas also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and This Space Available 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 ###-###-####
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 Kansas and Sedgwick 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
This Space Available is a full-service Wichita wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Wichita pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. This Space Available 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.
Wichita wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Kansas 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 Kansas law. We offer Wichita raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at This Space Available. 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 Wichita 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 Wichita 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 Wichita rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Kansas 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 Wichita pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Wichita 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 Wichita trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Wichita 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. This Space Available does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by This Space Available. 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
. This Space Available
also provides dead animal removal in Wichita. 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 Wichita snake removal - most of the snakes in Kansas are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Wichita. And remember, we are a private business, not Sedgwick County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (316) 838-9623.
Sedgwick County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Wichita Wildlife Tip #1:
What sort of bait catches a nuisance wild animal? - When wild creatures inhabit your home, you would be forgiven for thinking of things like bait and traps straight away. However useful this may be to get rid of the original problem, it is more than wise to look at the bigger picture, especially when it comes to avoiding the problem from ever returning again in the future. The best kind of trap can be bought fairly easily, especially online, and the right sort of bait to catch a nuisance wild animal is cat food, road kill, sweet fruit or seeds. However, once you have removed the creature from your life, what are you going to do next? If you decide to sit around and do nothing, you are just increasing the risks of having another nuisance wild animal or wild animal coming into your home or land. This is where the following preventative measures come into play: The first thing that you should do, regardless of whether the animal was in your home or not, is to make sure that any holes leading into your home is sealed to prevent any kind of wild animal from entering your beloved home. You might not see any holes, but look at the chimney - is this covered? What about the holes for the air conditioning units? How about your windows? Are these covered with screens? All of these things are potentially door ways for your little wild animals! Any kind of artificial creature can be used in the right against wild imposters, and as stupid as this may sound, these dummies have been shown to work on various wild animals. You could throw an owl in a tree, a hawk on your roof, or even snakes in the lawn - these can all work as a deterrent in the fight against the nuisance wild animal. Finally, have you thought about using cayenne pepper? No animal likes spicy stuff up their noise, so by sprinkling this strong powder around your fruit trees and flower gardens, you could be doing your part to keep the animals away.
Wichita Wildlife Tip #2:
What Can You Buy To Drive Away Wild animal Under The Shed - Having an wild animal living under the shed is probably one of the most frustrating things of all for many gardeners, and they will want to get rid of the animal as soon as possible. This is why some people will go to their local hardware store to see what wild animal repellents are available to drive the animal out, and there are plenty of products that claim to be able to drive away wild animals. However, there are also a number of different home remedies that people can use, and many of the ingredients for these are also commonly available and can often be bought from a general store. Unfortunately, the reality with all of these products is that there is no reliable wild animal repellent that has been discovered, and this means that many people will actually be wasting their money on these items. Wild animals have only recently become established over recent centuries in North America, and there are no natural predators for these animals on the continent. Because the majority of repellents work by replicating a predator's scent, this simply doesn't work when it comes to getting rid of wild animals, which is why people will have to look for a different solution to the problem.
Kansas Wildlife Information:
Kansas State mammal: American bison
State reptile: Ornate box turtle
State amphibian: Barred tiger salamander
State insect: European honey bee
Kansas was once home to the highest number of Native American tribes in the United States (before it became the United States). Those tribes either lived in permanent locations along the river channels or were nomadic, hunting bison and following the herds. Wild bison are no longer present in Kansas, such was the complete devastation brought on by over-hunting and conversion of prairie into farmland. Approximately two-thirds of the state exists in the Great Plains, while the last third is essentially comprised of forests and gentle hills. Residents of the state call it 'flat as a pancake', and recent studies have proven them correct; Kansas is considered the flattest state in the country. While that point is debatable based on measuring techniques, it doesn't change the fact that most of the animals in this region are those that thrive in open spaces. Kansas is warm and wet as well as warm and dry, all depending on which area of the state you reside in. Snowfall is common, and severe weather is often a daily occurrence. Not only does Kansas suffer from violent thunderstorms, those storms often dredge up dangerous hail and tornados.
Like bison, other animals have been extirpated from Kansas including mountain lions, gray wolves, black bears, and grizzly bears. Now, the most prominent predators in the state are coyotes and bobcats. These mid-level predators have a variety of small animals to feast on, leaving the large grazers often off the radar.
Large animals in Kansas are elk, white-tailed deer, pronghorns, and mule deer. Moose were once native to the state but have since been extirpated. Wild hogs are also present, and these are the most common hooved animals that fall prey to the carnivores.
Pest animals are numerous because of the high number of rodents living in a grass-oriented region. Kansas has an abundance of mice and rats including deer mice, cotton rats, woodrats, grey squirrels, fox squirrels, pocket gophers and prairie dogs.
If the rodents don't get you, the other pest animals just might. This state has plenty of raccoons, armadillos, skunks, badgers, minks, foxes, rabbits, hares, snakes, and bats. In fact, there are 16 different species of bats living in Kansas, waiting for a home with a warm, dry attic to sneak into.
