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 handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:

I'm not a critter trapper, but I went down to the wild animal association convention at the Midwest Airlines Center on Sunday to learn about "guaranteed furry tactics" because it's increasingly obvious in this part of the country that these furies have a few tactics of their own. I live in a densely populated area of Cedarburg with a whole bunch of other humans and, increasingly, critters of all shapes and sizes. Not long ago, my editor was sitting in our Cedarburg business wildlife management area office with a view of a wildlife management agreeing lot when half a dozen rodent went ambling by. Just the other night, two rodent were hanging out in yet another wildlife management aerating lot next to my house, a neighbor tells me. It was dark, but he thinks they were nibbling on a different neighbor's plantings. Read on for more information about animal control in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
They have no fear, it would seem, though they are occasionally good at inducing some themselves. Down in Colorado Springs., around this time last year, it was just reported, at least seven people were threatened or injured by female rodent - including one woman who says she had her ear sliced open - prompting Southern Colorado University to wage what is described as "a safety campaign" this spring. The safe thing to do: Run. But, of course, we don't. Critter Catcher Chris, a Colorado Springs resident who co-hosts "North American Furry Television" and spoke Sunday at the convention, didn't seem particularly surprised. Early June is fawning time, and female rodent have long been known to get aggressive. He recalls 20 years ago being in the woods when his rodent came across a baby and also came within a whisper of getting mauled by the rodent to whom it belonged. Despite this there is no free Colorado Springs animal services for wildlife in El Paso County.
He has some video of some folks in Randolph, he told me, who like to play fetch with their rodent in their yard. Every time they'd do it at one point in June, a rodent would appear and move toward them as if it wanted to play, too - although what it was no doubt really doing was protecting its turf, and its little one. Critter Catcher Chris is one of those Colorado residents who is nuts about wildlife management. "If you can't tell," he told a crowd of exterminating companies Sunday, "this is my passion. Chasing big furrys is my passion, and I love it." When I talked to him after the seminar, though, he sounded more like a veterinarian, a respectful one. Do animals become territorial? he announced. "Absolutely." But, he declared, "We have to remember these animals were here first." We, he declared, are increasingly encroaching on their turf and need to be mindful of that. It's not just rodent, after all. There are bald eagles in Colorado Springs. I had ducks in my yard recently. One night a couple weeks ago, I stood on the third base line of a softball field at a local elementary school and watched a red fox trot between second and first base, then sit down and scratch itself. Most Colorado Springs pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
It was lithe and beautiful, and I, my daughter and some friends must have stood there for five minutes before it ambled off down a street. And that is when you also feel something less sanguine. We relish these moments because of the grace of these animals and the rarity. But it is sad as well because they are losing their habitat and in some cases their fear. A red fox cannot last in the middle of a street. You wonder how long those eagles will last in Colorado Springs and the rodent exact number of rodents, at the right time and in the proper place, will quite clearly need to be reduced. They seem so comfortable with us of late, or at least not as scared as they used to be, and that is the wonder of it. At least, this is what Colorado Springs extermination companies think.
