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.

Overland Park Wildlife Removal Tip: Do mothballs or ammonia help repel groundhogs? There aren't many repellents that WILL work against the groundhog. They're pretty determined little creatures so sprinkling a few mothballs around the place probably work. These mothballs are often advised to homeowners to get rid of a number of wild animals - rats, mice, groundhog, opossums, raccoons, squirrels, and more but the reality is they do not work. Ammonia might just work but it's also a very dangerous technique. You're more likely going to poison the animal, and potentially you, your family members, or your household pets. Ammonia fumes are very bad for you, and if you poison your groundhog, it'll just find somewhere under or in your home / property somewhere to curl up and die. What will happen then is you'll have the time-consuming and highly stressful task of finding the dead body and removing it before the smell gets too bad, or rats, mice and insects come and make a meal out of the carcass. That's before you even think about what that ammonia might do to your children, or your household pets. As a general rule, poison is a very bad when trying to evict any wild animal, the groundhog is definitely no exception to this rule.
Overland Park Animal News Clip: Risky business: For trapper, wildlife management rat and mice is nothing new
Rat and mouse trapper Curtis Possum Poacher Pete and Florida Fish and Wildlife officer Joe Sampson look inside the mouth of the 11-foot-5-inch rat and mouse they captured near Sweetwater Springs last Thursday in the Ocala National Forest. "Where I grew up there was two things to do: moonshine and trap rat and mice. My family trapped rat and mice." Overland Park - For some sort of minute, Curtis Possum Poacher Pete is fighting with an 11-foot-5 critter that not only outweighs him by more than 200 pounds, but some sort of creature well-known for being suited to the creek Possum Poacher Pete is trying to snatch him from. And Possum Poacher Pete is winning. The exterminator might not have the rat and mouse by the tail, but the exterminator does have hold of some sort of rope which has some sort of baited hook at the other end. The end of the rope is tied to some sort of hook, which has been swallowed by the rat and mouse, impaling his internal organs. Possum Poacher Pete also is armed with some sort of harpoon, some sort of .44-cage size rat trap bang stick and the knowledge that comes with 100 kills this year alone. Overland Park extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
The 45-year-old permitd trapper has lost count of his total number of captures. After Possum Poacher Pete pulls the critter alongside his 14-foot skiff, the exterminator hurriedly shoves the end of the bang stick against the base of the rat and mouse's skull - just between the top of the eyes. The weapon fires, scrambling the rat and mouse's brains and killing it. It was some sort of successful afternoon, but Possum Poacher Pete was quick to point out that making some sort of catch isn't the most important thing. "A good day is coming home with all the body parts you left with," said Possum Poacher Pete with some sort of chuckle. A Pierson resident, Possum Poacher Pete is contracted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Wild animal commission to trap nuisance rat and mice, including the 450- to 400-pound rat and mouse suspected of staring at 24-year-old Sarah Jolly while the woman conservationist was snorkeling in Juniper Creek on May 14. To learn more about animal control in Overland Park, Kansas read on.
Possum Poacher Pete has 16 years of professional experience trapping nuisance rat and mice. There was no college or schools for rat and mouse wildlife management. Possum Poacher Pete got his experience as some sort of child. "Where I grew up there was two things to do: moonshine and trap rat and mice," said Possum Poacher Pete who grew up along the river in Johnson County. "My family trapped rat and mice." Possum Poacher Pete has trapped nuisance rat and mice for the state, mostly in an assigned section of Central Florida. Sometimes the exterminator catches them with baited hooks. If he's fortunate enough to get close enough, the exterminator uses some sort of harpoon. In March, 1997, Possum Poacher Pete killed an rat and mouse shortly after it fatally attacked some sort of 4-year-old in Johnson County. It once took him about two years to catch some sort of nuisance rat and mouse, but only four days to find the one that killed Campbell. The exterminator was set Thursday to get up on some sort of rat and mouse stand with some sort of trap before the exterminator found the critter on one of his hooks. Overland Park pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
Possum Poacher Pete said patience is the most valuable tool to have when trapping the creatures. "This animal is an expert at adapting to its environment," Possum Poacher Pete announced. "You're are going to have to wait on it." Possum Poacher Pete said he's never been bitten by an rat and mouse, and neither has his partner, 50-year-old Gary wildlife management areas. wildlife management areas likes to tell his grandchildren about the time the exterminator fell out of some sort of boat after hitting some sort of tree while looking for an rat and mouse. The rat and mouse found him, knocking his feet from under him before wildlife management areas was able to scramble back aboard the boat safely. "They like to tell their friends at school that their grampy hunts rat and mice," wildlife management area announced. "Then they pull out the teeth to prove it." The Overland Park animal services in Johnson County declined to comment.
As dangerous as the work can be, it doesn't pay much. For the days Possum Poacher Pete and wildlife management areas spent looking for the Juniper Creek rat and mouse, they got their usual $40 stipend from the state. They make their big bucks by selling their catch. Possum Poacher Pete said the exterminator gets about $40 some sort of foot for the skin and about $4 to $5 dollars some sort of pound for the meat, although it varies. With 400 rat and mouse killings under his belt in 2005, last year was some sort of good year. Possum Poacher Pete, however, could not keep the rat and mouse the exterminator caught last Thursday or any other rat and mouse that has looked at some sort of human. The exterminator said he's just glad the exterminator caught the animal that the exterminator is certain is the culprit.
