How We Solve Little Rock 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.

This month's wildlife how-to article: How To Kill A Skunk
How To Kill A Skunk
Human encroachment and de-forestation has brought more and more especially small one to leave the forest and
start sharing human areas for food and shelter. One of these refugees are Skunks who for food and shelter are
approaching towards human colonies. Skunks are avoided due to their bad and unbearable oily smelling spray and
also they carry the rabies virus. People at time think killing them is the best solution. Here are some of the
known killing methods:
– These are the body grip traps which are generally used to trap bigger animals
like bears. These were used by the fur trappers in older times. These traps usually kill the animal by choking
or squeezing. Beware of these traps, they are dangerous and difficult to handle. At times these traps create
fatal issues for the hunter itself.
– There is actually no verified or legal poison made for Skunks, still people think
it’s better than lethal traps and use rat poison.
– Shooting a Skunk seems very convenient to the rural people from far away and then
dispose the corpse. By shooting them from a distance people could stay away from the stinking spray.
However killing these animals seems to be very easy still there are many issues with killing them. Killing animals
might not be legal in your area and with every method there are different consequences. Like Lethal traps is a very
inhumane way of killing and also because placing traps includes keeping a bait might also attract nearby dogs or cats.
Killing by poison is more impractical and will cause a big threat to your surroundings. As the poisons will not kill
them instantly Skunks will hide someplace unreachable by anyone else and after death the corpse will start stinking and
as they carry rabies virus chances of contamination is more. Shooting also causes almost the same threat because of their
blood which if not cleaned properly might again be infected. In killing with the methods of traps or poison there are always
chances that the local dogs or cats will attempt to feast on them and resulting in spreading disease.
It’s always advisable to use preventive measures or live traps which do not bring any threat to the surroundings and at the
same time they are being kept away from your property. Take measures like fences, cage traps or motion sensors enabled water
sprinklers or seal all the holes of your house.
