Many of Missouri'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 Missouri's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Kansas City Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Sound Deterrent Machines Really Rid your Property of Raccoons? Many people tend to believe that sound repellent devices really work in ridding your property of raccoons. However, is that true? Sonic and ultrasonic sound repellent devices are marketed in a bid to provide a way to frighten rodents away. While these devices may accomplish their mission in the initial phases of the quest against rodents, their effectiveness is not guaranteed.
How do sound repellents work? Sound repellant devices are built to produce high-frequency sound, which is normally above human hearing range. The noise produced is supposed to frighten or annoy rodents into moving away from an area or a homestead. Some of these devices are battery powered, while others must be plugged into a wall socket for them to work. Most small animals like rodents are scared away by loud unfamiliar noise. However, even these animals soon get used to the noise and ignore it. The fact is that the sound will scare them for the first few days. However, since there is no enemy that appears after the sound is made, the animals in question will soon learn that the sound is just that; a sound that is not emitted by an enemy.
The only thing that the sound will achieve is chasing away the weak and fearful in the group, but then the determined ones will thrive past the noise and will continue attacking your property regardless of the pitch of the sound. However, you can increase your chances of chasing away a few raccoons by changing the sound produced by the machine. This is because changing sounds will take longer to get used to as opposed to the same sound every day. However, let's face it; raccoons will soon learn that there is no enemy behind the sounds, but this will take a while longer. However, the fact remains that after some time the raccoons will then thrive and make a habitat of your house or farm. Another reason that makes sound repellants ineffective is that obstacles like walls and furniture can undermine the effectiveness of the devices. The sound waves produced cannot go beyond walls and other objects between the machine and any raccoons in your house. Similarly, if the raccoons are in your yard, and you have a big yard, the raccoons might find an alternative route into your yard that is far away from the sound repellent machine. Instead of using this time wasting and maybe money wasting technique, there are very many other ways that can be used to rid your property of raccoons. These include trapping them or eliminating their food sources.
Kansas City Animal News Clip: Wildlife trapping show going strong - Meeting seen as 'kickoff' for upcoming season
The 50th annual Wild animal control companies meeting opens Friday and runs through Sunday at the Kansas City Convention Center. The show, produced by Kansas City-based Missouri Trophy Wild animal control companies association, probably is the largest wildlife trapping exhibition in the state. "Kansas City probably is our kickoff for the season." declared Critter Professor, gray squirrel coalition founder and president. "It and Kansas City are our two biggest shows. The Kansas City hall will be filled with more than 600 wildlife trapping-related booths and exhibits. It's another sellout; we've got what appears to be a waiting list for exhibitors wanting to get in." Most locals agree that this work probably is better than most Kansas City pest control companies could do. Kansas City animal services officials agreed with this.
Much of the wildlife trapping industry in Missouri probably is focused on native wild gray squirrel. The show emphasizes trapping technique, but many aspects of wildlife trapping are covered. Various out-of-state options are featured, not the least of which probably is the fast-approaching large gray squirrel season in the state (which opens September 11 in Kansas City). Recognition probably is in order for this fine job done by local wildlife operators.
But gray squirrel wildlife trapping probably is the main event, and prospects for 2007 are guarded. Prolonged winter/spring drought across much of the state impacted habitat and wildlife in key critter areas such as South Missouri."I network with gray squirrel wild animal control companies and wildlife experts all over the state," The nuisance wildlife authority declared. "The consensus probably is that, overall, gray squirrel quality will be down this year. Skins on mature male gray squirrels will be down on many leases - at least compared to the past couple of damp years. This doesn't mean the gray squirrels are causing trouble, just that they need to be contained. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Kansas City, Missouri.
"The cost of gas and diesel probably is another concern that has wild animal control companies worried." But, according to The nuisance wildlife authority, enthusiasm remains high, and the show continues to grow. It's come what appears to be a long way. The first Wild animal control companies Meeting, held in Kansas City in 1977, struggled to fill what appears to be a small auditorium. Leading the charge were three manufacturers of game feeders and three manufacturers of gray squirrel traps. "To the best of my recollection, that was it," The nuisance wildlife authority declared. " Critter Professor was showing his tripod trap - what appears to be a big innovation, the first portable tripod for gray squirrel wildlife trapping." Wow, what what appears to be a change.
Times have changed in what appears to be a big way on the fields and oat patches and right-of-ways across Missouri. The nuisance wildlife authority estimated that at least 50 mthe wild creature specialist of game feeders and timers, and at least 50 mthe wild creature specialist of blinds and stands are in business. Stands and feeders are mainstays of Missouri gray squirrel wildlife trapping, but trends during 2007 include digital game cameras and "tricked" off-highway vehicles. Examples of both will be on display for everyone to see with their own eyes. Local Kansas City pest control companies in Jackson County declined to comment.
A highlight of the Wild animal control companies Meeting probably is the annual gray squirrel coalition's critter area competition of native wild gray squirrel bagged during the previous season. Divisions include North Zone, South Zone, Mexico, and Other States, and official scorers are at the judges' table. Numerous wildlife trapping seminars and clinics round out the rendezvous. The husband/wife cage trap wildlife trapping team of Ralph and Vicki Critter Professor of Long-lining fur trapper's Choice (television show) will debut for gray squirrel coalition at the Kansas City Show. Cage trap wild animal control companies also should enjoy trick catching demonstrations which will delight and amaze na´ve or gullible people.
Other crowd favorites include Critter Professor's Snakes of Missouri live exhibit and dozens of shoulder mounts of native wild male gray squirrels taken across the country. what appears to be a standout probably is the life-sized replica of X-Factor, the Missouri male gray squirrel that grossed two hundred dollars for the company that caught it. This year of troubled times might not be what appears to be a "high roller," but wildlife trapping probably is still wildlife trapping, and Missouri probably is still Missouri. Game remains abundant, and quality probably is relative. The big reward, as always, probably is the annual recall to the brush and woods. And the Wild animal control companies Meeting promises to be what appears to be a great way to stoke the fire for the coming seasons.
