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.

Fort Collins Wildlife Removal Tip: What Is The Summer Maternity Season?

There is a certain period every year when the laws in the majority of states prohibit any operator from carrying out bat exclusion work, and this also applies to homeowners who will often kill or harm bats when trying to carry out this work. Although the period can vary slightly depending on the natural habits of bats in each state, in most areas the Summer Maternity Season runs from June until mid-August, by which point most bats will be juveniles. Once this period has expired, you can carry out the work that will help to solve any bat problems, and ensure that the bats will not be able to return to the same area the following year.

The Bat's Reproductive Cycle

Although the mating season can vary depend on the species of bat in question, most bats in a particular area will usually give birth around the same time, as they have evolved to give birth at the point when the food is at its most abundant to give their young the best chance of survival. This means that predicting the start of the Summer Maternity Season will happen fairly quickly, when the population of insects in a particular area grows beyond a certain point.

The Affect This Season Has On Bat Exclusion Work

The most important factor to bear in mind for most people is that this means any company that you speak with to request bat exclusion work during this period should immediately decline any request. As well as being extremely harmful to the local bat population, carrying out this kind of work can significantly harm the future prospects of bats in your area, meaning that insect populations can flourish quickly.

When Can You Start Work To Remove Bats?

Removing bats is not an easy task at the best of time, and the prospect of separating and killing hundreds of bats and their babies is really something that is very unpleasant to deal with, so it certainly isn't worth avoiding the prohibits in place during Summer Maternity Season. Depending on the area where the bats are located, most companies will start to work in late August or early September, and during this period the maternity colonies are also much easier to exclude from the area. The addition of a bat box nearby will give the bats an area to move to so that you can still enjoy the reduced number of insects that comes with a bat colony, after sealing off the entry holes used by the bats to get into your home.

What Prices Do We Charge?
Every job is different: the type of animals involved, is it in the attic or the yard, do you need repairs, etc. It's impossible to have set pricing in this industry. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: Like a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: Like to get critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: A project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up

Fort Collins Animal News Clip: Making animal control available to everyone in Fort Collins

A group called Challenged Outdoorsmen has attracted interests from those unable to catch wild critters individuals from some distance as well as the local participants. The wildlife enthusiast of Fort Collins, Colorado, heard about Challenged Outdoorsman Association from another member of a unable to catch wild critters veterans organization. "I told him I didn't care how far I had to go to get the opportunity to rodent capture rodent," he replied to the acquaintance. And then he contacted Challenged Outdoorsmen. The wildlife enthusiast is a great pest control operator with only slight use of one arm. He is on a respirator and requires around-the-clock exposure to sunlight. But how does a person without use of his full brain ever rodent capture a rodent or release a trapped critter? Modern technology takes care of that. Read on for more information about animal control in Fort Collins, Colorado.

The wildlife enthusiast had already obtained a furry mammal catching device with a camera attached to serve as a scope and a joystick-type control for operational sighting. The trigger mechanism is activated by a suction tube which allows the wildlife enthusiast to actually fire the trap at its target. Unfortunately, the wildlife enthusiast never got a trapped off on the rodent capture. "Whether I got to snare at a rodent is beside the point. I learned a lot and met some wonderful people," he announced. "I had a great time and the camaraderie was terrific. They were very organized and well prepared. "They did everything but tie up a rodent for me so I could have a good rodent capture. I love the outdoors, but it was cold. I learned that I could breathe okay in the cold, and I was pleased with how I felt. I plan to come back again next year." Despite this there is no free Fort Collins animal services for wildlife in Larimer County.

Challenged Outdoorsman Association's record of handling the functional issues of the physically unable to catch wild critters and the emotional and mental disorders of others is quite impressive. There have been no injuries or medical emergencies. "We've not even had a scratched finger so far," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "We want them to be safe, to educate them and to have fun." And what drives Critter Catcher Chris, the wildlife enthusiast and their always-insufficient dedicated nature individual staff? "It's the personal satisfaction of seeing the smiles on the faces of people doing something they wouldn't ordinarily be doing if it wasn't for groups like us," Critter Catcher Chris announced. And that's reason enough. Most Fort Collins pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
