How We Solve Denver Wildlife Problems
It starts with your phone call. We answer our phones 24/7, and we will carefully listen to your wildlife problem. Every case is different, so we will ask appropriate questions to help
us understand the situation better. Questions like, "do you hear the noises at night or during the daytime?" or "what type of roof do you have?" After we have a general idea of your
situation, we can provide a ballpark price range, and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment to inspect your property.
INSPECTION: Once on site, we will perform a full inspection of your home and property. This allows us to use the correct strategy and
traps. If the animals are in an attic, a full building inspection is crucial, including the following:
- All ground-level areas, such as piper or A/C line entry & exit areas, A/C chase bottoms, ground-level vents, etc.
- All mid-level areas, such as dryer vents, siding gaps, first floor eaves or dormers, etc.
- We inspect the entire roof, including all plumbing stacks, ridge caps, vents, and other potential gaps or holes.
- We also inspect inside your attic, to identify animals and damage they have caused.
- If the animals are outside, we notice many subtle clues that will assist us in a successful strategy.
TRAPPING, EXCLUSION, REMOVAL: Once we understand what animal species we are dealing with, and the problem, we use the most effective means of removing the animals. We use dozens of different types of traps.
- Trapping - If trapping the animal(s) in live cage traps, trap type, set, and location are crucial to success.
- Exclusion - Oftentimes, we are able to simply set one-way doors or other exclusion devices that allow the animals inside a building to safely exit, but never get back inside.
- Removal By Hand - Sometimes we actually remove animals by hand, or with special tools like snare poles.
- The Law - In all cases, we obey state and local laws regarding wildlife, but aim to take the most humane approach.
ENTRY HOLE REPAIRS: Repairs are a crucial step in the wildlife removal process. In many cases, such as bat or rodent control, the job cannot be performed without detailed repairs, and in
all cases, sealing the entry holes shut ensures that no future wildlife will ever enter your home.
- 100% of the entry holes must be found, and sealed shut, or the job is not complete.
- Our repairs are professional contractor grade, look good, and when applicable we use steel, which rodents such as rats or squirrels are unable to chew through.
- We give a written guarantee on our repairs against any future animal entry.
ATTIC DECONTAMINATION SERVICES: It may be desirable to clean your attic after we've removed the animals. They can leave behind large amounts of droppings,
urine, hair, oils, food, nesting material, and so on. These remnants can attract insects like cockroaches, and the scent left behind can encourage new animals to chew their way into your
house. You might experience odor problems from the waste. It's possible that mold will grow on waste areas.
- We remove or vacuum all droppings, or remove all the soiled insulation.
- We fog the attic with a special enzyme-based cleaner that destroys any organic matter and deodorizes the space.
- We repair damage, such as ductwork, electrical wires, pipes, insulation, and more.
The above are just a brief explanation of some of our methods. I haven't even addressed the hundreds of other potential cases that we deal with, from bat exclusions, to poison-free rodent control, to dead animal removal, bird roosting
prevention, mole trapping in a yard, ground-based exclusion barriers around a shed, etc. etc. Just give us a call any time, and we can describe in detail how we will resolve your specific wildlife problem.
During our snowy months, your attic and garage area can become the
perfect shelter for our Denver Wildlife. Snakes are great at slithering into
your garage and/or home undetected. Meanwhile birds and rodents can easily
make their way into your attic. If you find yourself in any of these situations
please give us a call! Our company handles wildlife trapping and removal.

This month's wildlife how-to article: Should I hire a pro, or remove mice myself?
Should I hire a pro, or remove mice myself?
If you are wondering if your only or best solution is to just get a professional everytime you have a mouse problem,
then this article will hopefully help you! In this article, it will briefly explain some suggestions that you can do
yourself BEFORE you go calling pest control:
When tryin to get rid of a mouse problem, the first step is to prevent in the first place.
Here are a few steps which you can take:
• Figure out how they get in - look for small holes and gaps
• Seal all the entry ways
• Keep your home clean including behind cabinets, fridges, and even the attic
• Set the traps
One of the simplest and most cost effective traps are your simple snap traps. These are the ones
you see on TV shows and cartoons. Another kind of trap used today are called zapper traps. They will
electrocute the mice when the they are trapped and kill them. Though effective, zapper traps need batteries
to work and you will need to replace them every so often. Another downside is that you will have to properly
dispose of the dead mice afterwards - a not too pleasant chore.
If you are not into using traps or would prefer to have less brutal means to keep those mice away,
repellents could be the best option for you. Common repellents are mothballs and peppermint oil yet,
they too have their controversies. Some people are for them and some are against them and it is really
up to you if you find them effective.
Mothballs can be very effective in keeping away your rodent and pest problems however, the downside is that
mothballs are as you very well know, poisonous and can potentially harm small childern and pets (if you have them)
if they are accidentally ingested. Another problem with mothballs is the smell. Nobody really likes a mothball-smelling home.
Peppermint oil could be an alternative if you don't find mothballs appealing to use. They are non-toxic and have more pleasant
smell. However, they can take longer to have an effect than if you use mothballs.
Baits and Poison
Though not the most humane or natural solution when it comes to removing mice from your home, people do happen
to use it. It is not a particular recommendation because they can be both harmful to you, to young children, and
pets that you might have.
If all else fails, a cat will be a constant deterrant to mice!
