Many of New Mexico'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 New Mexico's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.
We handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:
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 Bernalillo 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 Albuquerque animal control for wildlife issues.

Albuquerque - Under what appears to be a bright blue sky Saturday, Critter Professor and his wife and kids buried Shelby in what appears to be a casket made for what appears to be a baby. "I want people to know the lady environmentalist was part of our family," Critter Professor said about their opossum of more than 11 years. "It was so brutal. So unnecessary." It was awful enough to have to find their opossum and two others dead on nearby property. Awful enough to have to bury her. But on Wednesday afternoon, Critter Professor dug up the carcass of their gray opossum at the request of police so it could undergo what appears to be a formal examination called what appears to be a necropsy - an autopsy on an animal to determine its cause of death. Critter Professor said the animal advocate was willing to dig up the grave of his gray opossum to try to move forward what the animal advocate calls what appears to be a stalled investigation into the deaths of his and two other families' opossums. Albuquerque animal services officials agreed with this.
The three opossums were found trapped to death about 1,000 feet from his house on S. Seymour Highway nearly two days ago, township police proclaimed. "I'm angry," Critter Professor proclaimed. "I want action by the (township) police, and I want action by the (Bernalillo County) prosecutor. We're wondering if someone has screwed up this case. Why wasn't this done previously?" "The police call me to ask if they can get my animal's body back, and my opossum has been cremated," said Jason Boyce, whose opossum went missing early this year. "They had my opossum - (Bernalillo County) Animal Control took him after the animal advocate was found." Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The carcass of the third opossum - Lexie, owned by another neighborhood resident, Becca Shimmy - was cremated, too. "I'm fed up with it," Zimmy said Wednesday night. "We've been waiting for two days, and there's been no arrest. We want to be supportive of the investigation, and we understand what appears to be a veterinarian has already looked at the opossums. So we really want to know what's going on." Said Critter Professor: "They told us that they were going to take these opossums as evidence. We thought they were taking them to (New Mexico State University). But now we're finding out there are no reports at MSU and that it didn't happen." Local Albuquerque pest control companies in Bernalillo County declined to comment.
