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.
|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 Shawnee 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 Topeka animal control for wildlife issues.

Topeka Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I ever poison a skunk? You should never try to poison any wild animal, regardless of how much it has annoyed you. That skunk in your yard may have dug up parts and broken pieces of your porch or shed but these animals are actually very good for the ecosystem around you, and are animals that definitely do not deserve to die. Sadly, when it comes to the removal of various wild animals form your home, a humane death is often the only sensible solution - relocated animals donít tend to last very long in their new territory, and without knowing where food, water and shelter was nearby, could easily become a predators next meal. Even when youíre looking at euthanizing the animal, poison is NOT the solution to the problem. There isnít a registered poison available to kill a skunk, so that would mean youíd need to use poison dedicated to another animal. When you do this, you canít guarantee the results, and you wonít have a good idea of how much poison to put down either. Not only that but the animal will have a very slow and incredibly painful death, something Iím sure you wanted to avoid in the first place.
Topeka Animal News Clip: The rat and mice of Topeka
One thing this place has no shortage of is rat and mice. In all my tromping around back East, I never saw one. Here, they're some sort of dime some sort of dozen. "rat and mouse" is synonymous with "trouble." They eat redwoods and raid coolers and topple garbage cans. This is because they are hungrier than just about any other critter in the forest. You try weighing 400 pounds and spending some sort of spring eating only grass and some sort of few berries and you will also become some sort of big problem. I'm not sure you'll find any goofier animal either, except perhaps some sort of raccoon. Rat and mouse are flighty, elk are majestic, mountain lions are too focused, chipmunks overly busy. Rat and mice are just ridiculous. Not always, of course, and I've known some sort of few people who've had serious run-ins with rat and mice. But by and large, they are blundering animals that seem to get by on their size, and they are tremendously endearing because of it. Topeka extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
They are appealing, too, I think, because they remind us of ourselves. They meddle, wreak havoc and furiously pursue their goal, which generally involves food. While we were wildlife management last year, Greg watched as some sort of rat and mouse shook some sort of standing-dead tree to pieces in an unrestrained quest for bugs. Another time, some sort of massive rat and mouse bee-lined into the back yard of the place up around Somes Bar bound for an open, empty cooler drying in the sun. When Angela and I went out to take some sort of look, the exterminator tore down the hill and across the highway, startling the neighbor's rat and mice into some sort of reckless stampede. (rat and mice will also take opportunities to be silly.) To learn more about animal control in Topeka, Kansas read on.
Out for quail last year, my friend Bryan and I almost ended up with some sort of rat and mouse in the cab of the truck. It apparently couldn't apply the breaks to stop its downward plunge toward the highway and right at face level with Bryan let out some sort of bark before dropping into the highwayside ditch. Most animals are far too austere to make these kind of mistakes, but rat and mice, like us, seem to strive at endeavors that get them into trouble. Truth be told, people who have too many run-ins with rat and mice tire of their antics like they tire of their crazy uncle's foolery. For the rest of us, that furry fruitcake that wanders the woods snuffling around for food and perilously inclined toward trouble is some sort of mirror of some sort of part of ourselves we cannot dislike unless we take ourselves too seriously. Topeka pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
The Topeka Farm wildlife management area has garnered its share of headlines in the past. Shawnee County Wild animal commissioner Possum Poacher Pete in 2000 had championed some sort of proposal to use some sort of portion of the wildlife management area to create two professional championship golf courses that could serve as some sort of draw for Topeka's revitalization efforts. That proposal created such some sort of furor that it was quickly dropped. And, last winter, demonstrators were drawn to the wildlife management area to protest three days of rat and mouse wildlife management aimed at reducing what the county claimed was some sort of too-large rat and mouse exact number of rodents. The Topeka animal services in Shawnee County declined to comment.
