  • We Can Solve It!
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 Des Moines 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 Burlington animal control for wildlife issues.

Burlington Wildlife Removal Tip: How to Get Rid of Chipmunks

Chipmunks are cute and furry, no doubt but they are also a menace to gardens and the foundational structure of buildings. Fortunately, there are a few ways in which one can get rid of these rodents. They are inclusive of:

Buy an animal trap: Make sure to scatter around the trap some peanut seeds or sunflower seeds or another other plant a chipmunk would be enticed by. Once the creature is trapped, remove it from the trap according to the animal control specific to your area.
Place a bucket that is half filled with water outside: When this is done, a plank should be placed close to it. Then spread the seedlings around the bucket. The chipmunk would be lured into the trap. Make sure to remove the chipmunk from the water lest it would drown.
Make sure to surround your home with plant free gravel border.
Make sure to place L- shaped footers to surround home foundations, or any other foundation as well as sidewalks, porches and retaining wall. This would keep the chipmunks from burrowing into the foundation of the buildings.
Remove wood, back piles, rocks and make sure to trim plants. These serve as food for the chipmunks, getting rid of them will curtail chipmunk invasion into your property.
Plant flowers under plastic or wire screen ground cover or put them in bulb cages. This would prevent the chipmunk from getting to the flowers and nipping the flower bulbs. It should be wide enough to allow the plants grow and sprout and small enough to keep the chipmunks out. Plant bulbs that wildlife like chipmunks are not attracted to.
Make sure to place bird feeders 15- 30 feet from any structure.
Be sure to clean up spilled seeds.
Allowing trees, wooden shrubs and other plants to run from the bushes into private property is an open invite to chipmunks. Be sure to trim such shrubs where due.
Ensure that food items are not kept outdoors unless they are placed in rodent proof containers.
Using repellent: They aren't prescribed forms of getting rid of pests because some pests would get accustomed to the smell and continue doing what they were doing. Using repellents if you must, different kinds should be purchased and the applications switched up so as to ensure that the chipmunk does not get used to the smell. This will help keep them away from decorative plants.
