How We Solve Boulder 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.

The majority of calls we receive are from homeowners and tenants who have heard a scurrying sound in the middle of the night - one that seems to be coming from the ceiling and walls. The animal may have lived there for some time before you realized it’s invasion, and the damage can be very extensive. We will also take care of that - repairing any damage the wild animal had caused to a professional standard, and also sealing up holes once the animal has been evicted / excluded, to ensure it can never return. If you can’t find the animal, don’t worry. We can do that for you, and we’ve got ten years of experience to back our practices. That combined with our state of the art tools, makes us a family run business that you can really put your trust into. When you’re dealing with your home - the four walls and a roof that is meant to keep your family safe - you really do need a wildlife control service you can count on.

This month's wildlife how-to article: Methods to Get Rid of Rabbits

Rabbits are capable enough to cause huge damage to the property, and in order to get rid of these creatures, you need to use an integrated approach. Most homeowners in the United States are in trouble due to these creatures, and they need an immediate solution to keep their garden and plantation safe from these creatures. If you are also one of them, it is good to follow the methods described below to get rid of rabbits as soon as possible.

Eliminate the cover:
Rabbits are always curious to invade the areas that have tall grass, lots of debris and excessive growth of plants because it is the best choice for them to ensure safe shelter. If you eliminate these elements, it will be easier to create an unfavourable environment for rabbits. Make sure you mow grass time to time and rake the leaves regularly. Pull the weeds on time to avoid overgrowth and trim back all the excessive vegetation. Prefer to clean the wood, brush and debris piles to avoid rabbits. Experts also advise filling up all the abandoned burrows in the yard that rabbits can take over to live in cold and wet weather.

Install Fences:
Another good option to keep rabbits out of premises is to install mesh fences around. Although it doesn’t look pretty, they are capable enough to keep rabbits out of your premises. Experts advise this solution in the areas where rabbit live in high density. Note that rabbits are usually in search of some seedings and younger trees, so instead of covering the whole area with mesh fences, you can try to install tree guards in the area.

Exclusion method:
Experts advise using exclusion methods to deal with rabbits in the area. The market is loaded with a variety of exclusion devices that can serve the purpose with ease. First of all, you need to target the burrows where rabbits are living in your premises and then install exclusion funnel at one end of those burrows by sealing the other in advance. The rabbit will find a way to come out of the hole with ease, but the exclusion funnel does not provide a return path. Once the animal is out of the area, you can seal the remaining holes as well.

Trapping the animal:
Last but not the least option to deal with the rabbit problem is using traps. The market is loaded with lethal and non-lethal trapping mechanisms that anyone can use at home. The best idea is to choose non-lethal ones as they are a humane way to deal with the rabbits, without causing any harm to them. Anyone can install these traps at home with ease, but experts say that this method is not much successful when you have numbers of rabbits in the area. In such situations, it is better to take help from professionals to handle the issue. They know right tips and tricks to deal with the problem so that property can be saved from rabbit attack for the long run .
