Many of Wisconsin'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 Wisconsin'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 Waukesha 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 Oconomowoc animal control for wildlife issues.

Oconomowoc Wildlife Removal Tip: Do mothballs or ammonia help repel Wisconsin skunks? If someone bigger than you were to come into your home and spray some mothballs around, would it be enough to get you to leave the relative safety and protection of your four walls and a roof and head somewhere else? No, we didn’t think so. If someone much bigger than you were to be that annoying, you’d have someone come along and resolve the problem which admittedly, is not a luxury wild animals like the average skunk has. Instead, they’ll stand their ground, moving around your home and getting deeper and deeper, reaching places you won’t ever be able to reach, in a bid to get away from you - from whatever it is you are putting down to try and repel or deter them. You see, repellents and deterrents rarely work. There are some out there which will give you a fighting chance against these little beasts but mothballs are one that definitely doesn’t work. They may smell bad but they don’t smell bad enough to persuade a scavenger like the skunk to give up what it now calls home. Ammonia is just a dumb idea too - it’s a dangerous poison which can cause harm to wildlife you DON’T want to harm, as well as your own household pets, the pets of your neighbors, young children, and even adults. Common sense tells you it’s a bad idea to leave poison lying around, especially something like ammonia with a toxic fume, so why would you ever consider that as an option? I can tell you without having to think about it that using ammonia is a bad idea.

Oconomowoc Animal News Clip: DO MOTH BALLS OR AMMONIA HELP REPEL RODENTS? Even though people like to think, that using the repellents in order to get rid of rodents is the right way, it's certainly not the effective one. The Repellents are more like an invitation than they are an eviction note.

We know two kinds of repellents: • natural repellents • and synthetic or man-made repellents

Natural repellents usually work on the basis of odor and/or taste repelling, and most widely used natural repellents are: • mothballs • ammonia • the peppermint plant/oil • predator's urine •

Rodents have an extremely well-developed sense of smell and therefore strong odor makes them uncomfortable. The best way to make some use of repellent is to spread it over the area where rodents either enter their home or where they move around a lot. However, you need to spread a large amount of repellent in order to achieve some effect. The weather conditions are a potential problem as well. You need to reapply the repellents after every rain, as they are washed away.

Mothballs primal use has been intended to kill moths, usually causing damage to people's clothes. Through time, it has been determined, that mothballs have some effect on rodents as well. There are two types of this repellent, mainly consisting of: Naphthalene - Paradichlorobenzene - Mothballs sublimate, meaning they change from solid state directly to a gas state. Produced gas is lethal to moths and has an extremely agitating and unpleasant effect on rodents as well. Mothballs are somewhat effective at first when sublimation is starting to take develop. After some time, they lose their effectiveness and replacement with new mothballs has to be made. Rodents will certainly return; the moment mothballs stop to emit the gas.

Usage of mothballs
First of all, you need to locate the places, where rodents are entering your home. Mothballs should be placed in an open container, as close as possible to all entry points. Mothballs are toxic and need to be placed and kept away from child's reach. The safety of a child or the rest of the family and pets, without any doubt, comes first. The main object and goal of mothballs are getting the repulsive smell of gas into rodent's noses.

The smell of ammonia is other semi-effective repellent, causing rodents think twice, before entering your premises. This smell is actually the smell of predator's urine and a fear for their life might cause a rodent to change its mind. At least, in the beginning, when you spray the area.

Usage of ammonia
Ammonia should be used as mothballs are. Entry points should be located and a glass or a jar should be filled with ammonia. The problem with this method is the possibility of spilling the liquid. Spraying ammonia over the area where rodents enter your premises is, of course, an outside only possibility. Keep in mind that using repellents such as mothballs and ammonia is only a temporary solution, regarding getting rid of rodents.
