How We Solve Omaha 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.
We can deal with a whole host of wild animals, but we specialize in the removal of entire bat colonies from attics. We can remove the colony of bats using exclusion methods, without harming a single one of them, and once all bats are gone, we will seal up the hopes so the flying critters can’t come back in. We can also offer assistance if you’re in need of bird control services - we will take preventative measures to ensure pigeons and other birds cannot roost on the roof of your building. All of our wildlife control work is done to the highest standards, taking into consideration the welfare of the animal itself, as well as getting the job done properly for you - the homeowner. With over ten years in the business, we know our stuff, and we know that the inhumane methods, such as using poison, never works. That’s why we aren’t exterminators. Using just exclusion devices and live cage traps, we’ve proven that you can effectively take out, and keep out, those wild animals without the need for harmful procedures.

This month's wildlife how-to article: What Are The Best Methods To Trap Gophers
Gophers are some of the most commonly found rodents in the United States; they are often found below the ground. These pests keep on digging the passageways to create some place to hide. It is possible to spot their living spaces with ease because they are loaded with lots of dirt that these rodents leave carelessly behind. If you find a mound in your premises, it is time to search for the gopher around because they might be destroying the field around.
It is important to know that gophers are always interested in digging new mounds instead of using the old tunnels. It means if these creatures are living on your premises, you will always be able to have a clear indication about there presence. If you are in search of gopher in your garden or yard area, it is important to use a wooden peg with a length of around 2 feet. Prefer to wear a pair of gloves and get a shovel to handle the gopher with the trap. The market is loaded with a variety of traps that can be used to capture gophers. One of the most commonly used traps is made up of plastic material, and its uses to have a cylindrical form that appears like a tunnel. This arrangement also contains a powerful spring that helps to trap the gopher inside. Another option available in the market is plastic or wooden box. The similar type of mechanism is used for catching moles, rats, and squirrels. As soon as the gopher gets inside the trap box, a wire bar immediately craps around, and the rodent gets stuck inside with the spring mechanism. The third option is Macabee trap that comes with a specially designed claw-like mechanism; it crushes the gopher as soon as it steps on the trigger.
One of the most difficult things for most homeowners who are in trouble due to gopher attacks is doing right placement of traps. Experts advise using a cable or wire to hold the trap firmly so that it can stay fixed in one place. Note that gophers keep on visiting the area in the day hours and their activities start right from the morning, so it is the best time to capture them. As soon as you find a borrow on your premises, it is important to take a piece of cardboard and then shield the hole temporarily to avoid any light entering inside. Now excavate deeper until you find the main passageway and then clear everything so that you can easily catch the animal on both ends. Place the trap carefully using cable/wire and put attractive baits around; it can be seeds, prunes or leaves as well. Never forget to place the cardboard hole exactly above the hole where you are waiting for the gopher to arrive. In case if you are not able to handle all these requirements, it is important to call professionals to deal with the issue on time.
