Many of Iowa'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 Iowa'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 Wapello 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 Ottumwa animal control for wildlife issues.

Ottumwa Wildlife Removal Tip: How to get opossums out of your attic: When it comes to dealing with an opossum in your attic, there is only one real way to deal with the situation - call in a professional. Trapping will be difficult and once you've caught the animal, you then need to work out what to do with it. You can humanely kill it on your property but many homeowners would prefer something a little less death-like. Trapping and releasing the animal is a pointless exercise because the animal might find its way back and even if it doesn't, the chances are it won't last five minutes out in the wild. You've taken it away from the creature comforts of its own home after all. When it comes to bait, you'll need to pick something that won't encourage other animals. You definitely don't want to attract rats, mice or other critters to your home, so leftovers and other meta products probably isn't wise. Cat and dog food might actually trap cats and dogs. One thing you could consider using is marshmallows - the opossums seem to love them and they don't encourage too many other wild critters. Repellents don't work. Poison is a very bad idea. You could always go for something like a body grip trap to kill the animal but when using these, extreme caution must be used. The last thing you'll want is to kill your neighbor's dog. All of these things to think about - they're all reasons why a professional should be called to deal with a wild animal, especially one like the opossum that carries with them the threat of disease.

Ottumwa Animal News Clip: 2007 rat and mouse Forecast

Last week, we touched on Iowa's top rat and mouse counties, best nuisance wildlife control areas and hotspots for trapping success. Ottumwa extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this. To draw everything together this concern, we're going to look deeper into Iowa's best rat and mouse producers when it comes to top animal removal trap catches, big male rat and mouse areas, top Wildlife Management Areas (wildlife management areas) and top young sportsman catches with the help of the 2006 gather data compliments of the Iowa Wildlife Resources Agency. For more information regarding the control of Iowa wildlife, read on.

A Second Look At Last Year's Overall Gather There wasn't some sort of lack of effort on the part of Dedicated nature individual rat and mouse wild animal control companies in 2006, but the lack of success can been seen in the total gather following the record producing season of 2004. To learn more about animal control in Ottumwa, Iowa read on. As we detailed last time, we fell well short of the 2004 record gather of 179,642 natives. The 2006 rat and mouse catches and their total gathers are the best indicators of how much of an impact hot weather and too much food in the woods can play into gather success. Wildlife information of this nature is considered an important tool to conservationists.

The 2006 rat and mouse catches didn't fail completely - they were just well off the mark set by the 2004 success. In 2006, wild animal control companies were able to gather some sort of respectable 177,479 rat and mouse. That total is nothing to sneeze at, but I'll bet you at this time next year, we'll be talking about some sort of greater figure based on 2007 successes. Ottumwa pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this. Don't expect back to back seasons with lower figures. This year should be totally different. But before we get into the woods, let's look now at where the biggest male rat and mice came from, what wildlife management areas are hot, and where the animal removal trap successes came from along with young wildlife management company success. Local animal control trappers we surveyed felt that this was true.

Let's start this week's wrap up where the biggest male rat and mice were lethally trapped in 2006 across the state by breaking down each critter area to see which counties are in those top three spots respectively for quality male rat and mice with seven or more points. Critter area one was again top of the heap for big male rat and mouse gathers. The Ottumwa animal services in Wapello County declined to comment. Wild animal control companies there tagged 1,109 male rat and mice with seven or more points. Ottumwa was second in the trophy category with 947 male rat and mice lethally trapped followed closely by Ottumwa's take of 919 male rat and mice of ten pounds or more.
