Many of Iowa'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 Iowa'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 Scott county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Bettendorf animal control for wildlife issues.

Bettendorf Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Make A Snake Trap

In few residential areas, snakes are a big problem for homeowners. These scary reptiles use to plan a frequent visit to yard and garden in search of food and if possible can also enter the living space. Snakes can always be harmful to families, especially if you have kids and pets at home. That is why it is important to learn tricks to create a snake trap at home so that you can deal with the emergency.

Note that, as per state laws, it is not legal to kill snakes so you need to choose humane traps to catch them and once trapped, they must be disposed at some far place from human habitat. Below we have mentioned few simple and most efficient techniques to create snake trap; they may help you to ensure full safety of your family.

Making a trap for small snakes:

The good news is that small snakes can be trapped with ease but if you are handling these reptiles for the first time it can be little scary as well. It is important to create a trustworthy trap that can handle snake well once you have trapped it inside. In order to make a trap for small snakes, you have to collect a frozen bait, cutter, scissors and plastic bottle.

First of all, wash the bottle properly so that it does not release any smell. It must be tightly closed from the cap. Now take a cutter or scissors to create a small hole at bottom of this bottle. Note that, size of this hole must be large enough to allow a snake enter inside.

Now get some snake food from the market and slide this bait into the bottle. Simply place this trap in the area where you often find the attacking snake and keep a regular check on your trap if the snake is trapped or not. As soon as you have captured it successfully, prefer to call the animal control experts in your area to dispose of it.

Making a trap for big snakes:

It is little difficult to deal with the bigger snakes because they appear scary and dangerous. However, if you have a right trap, you can catch them easily. In order to create the best trap for the big snakes, collect a saw, framing hammer, screwdriver, hinges, Plexiglas, wooden box and a bait.

You can easily find a wooden box at a nearby store or it is also easier to create it yourself at home. This wooden box must have a lid. Now you have to create small holes in the box that can allow airflow in-out and can also allow the bait's smell to spread around. Create a small opening at one end of the box and then create two doors using Plexiglas. Note that, these doors must be bigger enough to allow snake enter inside. Now place the bait inside the box and wait for the snake to enter inside. Once you are able to trap the snake, call professionals to dispose of it.
