  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?
  • Digging Lawn or Under House?
  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Colorado's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Colorado's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local El Paso county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Black Forest animal control for wildlife issues.

Black Forest Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some humane ways to kill a groundhog in a cage?

Groundhogs are small rodents that are becoming increasingly more bothersome. The reason for this is the systematic destruction of their natural habitat. With nowhere else to go they find food and shelter in gardens or homes. They are not dangerous creatures and if left alone pose no risk. However, they will destroy your garden in search of food. They are also known to burrow under homes and porches causing structural damage. Once they damage your property people generally try to get rid of them.

How to catch them

The best way to catch them is by using a cage. This will leave them unharmed. You can then relocate them or kill them humanely. Some traps will kill them. However, they often lead to a very slow and painful death for the animal. Animals are often left to bleed or starve to death. If you are going to use a cage to catch a groundhog, you need to check it regularly. In the event of a groundhog getting caught it needs to be removed as soon as you become aware of it. Otherwise, the animal is suffering. Do not place the cage in the sun, the groundhog might be in it for a while and it will be very uncomfortable in the glaring sun.

Why kill them?

70% of animals that are caught and relocated die anyway. They are placed in an environment that they are not familiar with. This leaves them unable to find food or shelter. They often starve to death or die of dehydration. In some circumstances, they are caught by predators that they are not familiar with. This means that they are vulnerable to attack.

Humane ways of killing them

The most humane way to kill a pest is by shooting it. This will enable you to end its life quickly without any suffering. You can also cover the cage in a plastic bag and connect it to a pipe that is attached to your car’s exhaust pipe. This will allow the groundhog to essentially “fall asleep.” You need to be careful of gun laws in your state. It is not legal to discharge a firearm in a residential area. If you are able to get a vet to euthanize the rodent, it might also be a less painful option.
