Wildlife Trapping: Raccoons, skunks, opossums, we trap and solve the root of the problem: If you have squirrels in your attic, we don't just trap and remove the squirrels. We perform a full inspection of your home and attic, and we find out how the squirrels got in. We check the attic for damage the animals may have caused, such as chewing on electrical wires. We measure the degree of waste the animal has left behind. We humanely remove all of the squirrels, including babies, and completely animal-proof your house, sealing shut any and all areas that animals can use to enter. We repair any damage, and we clean and decontaminate your attic. Call for Denver raccoon removal, Denver squirrel removal, and more.

Rat & Mouse Control: We are experts at rodent control. The big mistake that a lot of other pest control companies make, when it comes to rat & mouse control, is the use of poison. Poison is a completely ineffective approach to rodent control. It only kills a percentage of the rodents, and new ones quickly come in (or are born) to replace the dead ones. The ones that die often do so in the attic or walls, and it creates a terrible odor. The proper approach is to seal off all entry points into the building, and to trap and remove them all. This is the only permanent solution. After we've removed all rats, we clean that attic, so that it is sanitary once more.

Denver Bat Control: This is a specialty field. We have a 100% success rate at bat removal projects, and pride ourselves on our precision. We never harm any of the bats - they are valuable creatures, and it's against the law to do so - but we completely remove all of the bats, and seal up your home or building so that no bats can ever enter again, and we give written guarantee on our work. Bat control requires a strong knowledge of bat behavior, and great precision in sealing the tiny gaps that bats can enter. We also provide guano cleanup and removal and decontamination to eliminate health risks associated with bats.

Denver Bird Control: Our city is full of birds, which can cause problems on commercial properties. Pigeons commonly roost on buildings - under awnings, on store signs, on beams, ledges, and so on. We are bird prevention experts - we install bird exclusion devices that will make your building bird-free. This includes bird spike installation on surfaces where pigeons roost, netting for large areas like awnings or gas stations, and more. We will get rid of those birds for good, and we also clean up the mess they've left behind, if necessary. We also handle Starlings, Geese, Swallows, and other problem birds, both residential and commercial.

Denver wildlife removal tip of the month: What equipment is needed to trap a wild animal?
There are a myriad number and types of traps on the market and all of them do the job they are designed for but just which one you need will depend entirely on what kind of animal you are trying to trap. There are all kinds of stories from old-time trappers to modern professionals and some that just obviously urban myths about how to go about trapping certain animals.



Old-time trappers say you need to leave any trap out exposed to the elements for at least two weeks before you even attempt to use it, this is for a couple of reasons they state, the first is to allow the trap to get a bit of rust on it, and to remove any human smell on, you do this so the animals will just think the trap is some metal that has been abandoned where it is and not be afraid of it. If you have a trap that is not working because the animals are always shying away from it, then it's probably because the trap has a smell on it they do not like, a recommended method for getting rid of whatever the smell is is to boil the trap with some wallnut bark, the natural tannins in the wallnut will mask any odor, trappers also say do not forget whatever is used to prevent the animal walking off in the trap, it is usually a chain and a spike.

A lot of trappers, even the ones who do professional wildlife removal have another trick up their sleeve but they really mention, they have small jars which contain animal scents, these are commercially available in specialty stores, usually sporting goods department's. If sprinkled around the entrance to the trap and even on the trigger plate another animal of the same species will more than likely investigate the smell and as long as there are no other smells, especially human ones, to confuse the issue the animal will most likely be trapped.

There are basically two types of traps for ground dwelling animals, there are the lethal types which of course killed the animal when the trap is sprung and there is the nonlethal type which is designed to capture the animal in a cage like trap to allow you to relocate it to a more acceptable place for it to live. All of these traps come in different sizes and shapes designed for each different species.
