Wildlife Pest Control Services in Colorado Springs
We use ethical and humane traps as part of our wildlife pest control services. We catch and relocate these unwanted critters. After we evict these destructive animals, we explore your options to prevent future intrusion to your home.
Raccoon Pest Control
Raccoons in Colorado Springs are not an uncommon sight at any time of the year. Sometimes lovingly referred to as “trash pandas,” these cute but destructive animals are not visitors you want on your property. Raccoons will tear up your trash and can demolish siding and roofing to get into your home. Generally speaking, we see mothers nest in the spring, which can be very dangerous for your home, and your family. During the time when babies are present, mother raccoons are very territorial and can attack if they feel their young are in danger. When it comes to raccoons, we work to remove the animals from your property and make proper repairs to keep them from returning.
Squirrel Pest Control
Squirrels can be a real nuisance around your home. They will taunt your dogs, eat your bird food, and may even tear about your house trying to find a spot to nest. In Colorado, we have tree squirrels and ground squirrels, with a variety of breeds in each of those categories. Dealing with squirrels can be a real headache, which is why we are here to take that burden off of you. In order to help keep squirrels from destroying your home, you can remove food sources, or get squirrel-proof bird feeders. Additionally, you can trim branches that hang over or near your home. In the event that your efforts to keep squirrels away from your home are not successful, our team of residential pest control service experts have the skill and know-how to exclude these pesky climbers.
Skunk Pest Control
No one enjoys seeing skunks in their neighborhood. We have four species of skunks in Colorado, with the most common being the striped skunk. Related to weasels, skunks look for food sources like trash, eggs, and insects. Similar to raccoons, skunks are nocturnal, however you may still spot them during the day. Skunks in Colorado will dig and can end up under your foundation, decks, or patios. Known for their potent smell, skunks will not hesitate to spray you or your pets if they feel threatened.
In Colorado, skunks and bats at the main sources for rabies cases. Rabid wildlife can spread the disease to humans and our pets and livestock. If your pet has been bitten by a rabid animal, wash the bite area for 15 minutes and contact your vet. Similarly, if you suspect that you or your child have been bitten by a rapid animal, contact your doctor immediately, as well as the El Paso Country Public Health Department.
These are just a few of the wildlife services we offer. If you find yourself with an infestation of any sort, give us a call.
“My husband and I found a squirrel that had taken up residence in our garage. I was looking for a humane pest control service and came across Complete Pest Control. They came out within a few hours of me calling and had the squirrel in a cage in no time! Everyone I spoke to was incredibly friendly and helped ease my nerves. I highly recommend using them for any kind of pest control. And thank you guys again!”
