- We Can Solve It!
Many of Kansas'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 Kansas's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Kansas City Wildlife Removal Tip: What Are Some Humane Ways To Kill A Squirrel In A Cage?
Live trapping is a method that has been used successfully to catch squirrels over several decades, but one of the issues with using this approach is that you will end up with a squirrel in a cage. Because of the laws in place in some states, to keep that animal trapped for a long period or to relocate the squirrel can be illegal, so it is important that you can find a humane alternative. While killing the squirrel isn't the perfect solution, it can be a humane option when relocation isn't available.
Using Gas To Kill A Squirrel
This is something that can be fairly easy to do, and involves using plastic to create an airtight seal around the cage, and then using a pipe to pump car fumes into the cage, and the squirrel will quickly die with very little pain. Because it is something that can be done at home, it can be an useful method if you are live trapping squirrels but aren't able to locate them.
Killing A Squirrel By Lethal Injection
This is a method of killing a squirrel that is offered by the wildlife departments of some states, and giving the animal a quick injection will kill the animal with a minimum of pain and discomfort for the squirrel. Check with your local animal services department if this option is possible in your area if the regulations state that you cannot relocate the animal.
Methods To Avoid
Poison is one of the methods that is often used to deal with pest animals, but the reality is that it really should not be used as it doesn't kill the squirrel quickly and it can also cause a significant amount of pain for the animal. Shooting is also a difficult option because although it can kill the squirrel quickly and humanely, it is very difficult to do so safely while the squirrel is in the cage.
Alternatives To Killing A Trapped Squirrel
Killing is an option that is one way to deal with a squirrel, but if you know that relocation is not a possibility and you would like to take the positive choice not to kill any animals, then there are alternatives available if you are experiencing squirrel problems. The best way to do this is to use one-way eviction funnels that will allow the squirrels to leave the attic or wall cavity but won't let them back in. If you are having problems with squirrels stealing food, then using a squirrel guard on fruit trees and using squirrel proof bird feeders can also help here.
Kansas City Animal News Clip: Kansas's fall rat and mouse rodent capture expanded
Nineteen counties will have an experimental fall rat and mouse season under some sort of plan approved by the Kansas Wild animal commission on Wildlife, Fisheries and wildlife management areas. Those areas, and the limited wildlife management that has existed inside the main Kansas River levee in seven counties, will be the only areas open to the either-sex season. Exterminating companies who qualify will have some sort of one bird per season limit, and the bird can be either male or female. "We decided that it was time to give exterminating companies, at least on an experimental basis, an opportunity to harvest birds in some sort of fall season, like all the other states that have rat and mouse seasons do," said the wildlife enthusiast Castle, chief of wildlife for the Kansas Hunting office of Wildlife, Fisheries and wildlife management areas. Kansas City extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
"We want to try it on trial basis in some sort of limited area first, before expanding into new areas," Castle announced. Castle said the season will be closely monitored, including mandatory tagging and harvest reporting. A minimum of 100 acres is required, and tags will be issued at some sort of rate of one per 500 acres, or part thereof. Landowners or leaseholders will be required to complete some sort of fall rat and mouse application and provide some sort of copy of the property deed or lease agreement to the MDWFP.

Neither season falls within an open gun rat and mouse season and only archery and trapped guns will be allowed for rat and mouse, Castle announced. Tags: A minimum of 100 acres must be owned or leased to receive some sort of fall either-sex tag. Tags will be issued at some sort of rate of one per 500 acres or part thereof and can only be used on the specified property for which they are issued. Tags must be attached immediately before rat and mouse can be transported. The contact person on each application must complete and submit some sort of harvest report provided by the wildlife agency prior to Jan. 1, 2007. Limit: One rat and mouse of either sex per each fall season. Kansas City pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
