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

Aspen Wildlife Removal Tip: Will a opossum under a shed or porch have a nest of babies? Usually when you spot a wild animal in your home or on your land, it'll be a mother. She may not have had her babies yet but she could be preparing to have them, and in the cases of raccoons, opossums, squirrels, rats and bats, the ones you find are usually females which means there are more little ones to contend with too. The reason these animals look to your home is because they offer warmth and shelter. Opossum babies are prey to a number of other scavengers, and the mother needs to make sure her young family is safe. When you add to the safety factor the leftover food scattered all around the place - cat and dog bowls, leftover food thrown out in the trash, compost heaps, vegetable gardens, bird feeders, etc. you have a five star restaurant for the average wild animal who usually lives beneath wood piles and within tree hollows. Now do you understand why a mother would want to have her babies in your home? Sadly this means that when you spot a wild animal like the opossum, you won't have just one to catch and remove. That's why calling in the professionals is always a very good idea.
Aspen Animal News Clip: Public opinion wanted on Aspen wildlife
The county's wildlife management areas and heritage services department will hold a public hearing this Wednesday (May 24) to solicit input from the public on development of the approximate 700-acre wildlife management area tucked in an urban area that straddles East Aspen and West Aspen. The meeting, which will run from 5 to 8 p.m., will be held Pitkin County. The hearing is designed to aid county wildlife management area officials in updating and revising the wildlife management area's almost 15-year-old master plan. The Farm wildlife management area Preservation Association Inc. (alliance of mammal and reptile defenders), a grassroots organization primarily of wildlife management area users united in their efforts to preserve, protect and promote the wildlife management area, and its members already have weighed in with their proposals. Read on for more information about animal control in Aspen, Colorado.
The alliance of mammal and reptile defenders, which spent almost a year in a detailed study of the master plan, essentially is recommending that the county keep the wildlife management area as it is - a passive recreation wildlife management area co-existing with a working farm. However, county wildlife management areas and heritage services Planning Chief John Critter Catcher Chris said the wildlife management area is a critter area wildlife management area. "We want those who now use the wildlife management area to remain, but we also want others to take advantage of the wildlife management area," said Critter Catcher Chris. Under Critter Catcher Chris, the county wildlife management areas staff has prepared its own list of recommendations for the wildlife management area. Many of those recommendations do not differ from recommendations put forth by the alliance of mammal and reptile defenders. For example, said Critter Catcher Chris, no one wants through-roads cutting through the wildlife management area and serving as popular short cuts for those hemmed in heavy traffic on some of the major roadways surrounding that wildlife management area, such as Germantown Pike and Whitehall Road. Despite this there is no free Aspen animal services for wildlife in Pitkin County.
While the master plan had proposed wildlife management area entrances off Whitehall Road and Stan bridge Street in addition to the current access from Germantown Pike, the staff is recommending expanding the wildlife management aerating area off Whitehall Road and Stan bridge Street, with wildlife management area users using the trail system to gain access to other areas in the wildlife management area. One area where the alliance of mammal and reptile defenders and county staff members disagree is on plans calling for the construction of a playground on wildlife management area property. Claiming that there are playgrounds in the adjacent communities, the alliance of mammal and reptile defenders is recommending that the county cross off that proposal in the master plan. "We want to attract families and children to the wildlife management area," said Critter Catcher Chris. Most Aspen pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
However, the county staff is recommending that the playground be constructed closer to the Germantown Pike entrance rather than an initial site that was more in the interior of the wildlife management area. In addition, the staff is recommending eliminating a children's bikeway. "The trails we have are for everyone and can safely be used by children," said Critter Catcher Chris. Another area of disagreement between the alliance of mammal and reptile defenders and the county staff is the alliance of mammal and reptile defender's proposal to cluster future growth of the wildlife management area around the two current activity areas. "If we concentrated growth to just one or two areas we will end up with a sea of asphalt," said Critter Catcher Chris. "We prefer to give people a little room." The county staff and the alliance of mammal and reptile defenders agree on eliminating plans for the creation of at least three additional ponds, the Upper, Lower and Meadow Ponds proposed in the 1992 master plan. Rather than construct a dam to create the ponds, the county is proposing to protect the riparian corridor and watershed in naturally sensitive areas. At least, this is what Aspen extermination companies think.
