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:

  • Humane wildlife trapping and relocation services
  • Removal of raccoons or squirrels from the attic
  • Building repairs and prevention work to keep animals out
  • 100% permanent elimination of rats, mice, or even bats
  • Cleanup of animal waste and odor control services
  • Emergency animal issues, and dead animal removal

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 Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Get Bats Out Of The Attic

When it comes to dealing with a bat infestation, some people will be happy to leave the bats in a roof cavity or attic, while others simply will not like the idea of having the animals living under the same roof as them. Bats are traditionally animals that live in caves and dark areas in forests and woodlands, but as the habitat for them has dwindled, they have adapted to live in other locations. However, when it comes to getting them out of attics, there are specific techniques that can be used to deal with the bats.

Don't Exclude Bats During Maternity Season

This is one of the most important things to check before you start work to try and evict the bats from the attic, as the bat maternity season can make some eviction techniques ineffective, and can cause more problems than it solves. Carrying out work during this part of late spring and early summer will not only separate the mother from her babies, but it can also lead to baby and juvenile bats exploring by themselves, meaning they can get into some other parts of the property outside the attic.

Using Funnels To Get Rid Of Bats From The Attic

The most important part of any bat eviction work is to find all of the entry holes that the bats are using to get in and out of the attic, and this will usually require a close examination of the roof line at dusk, as well as examining the interior of the attic. You can then seal some of these holes, and install exclusion funnels over the remaining holes. Use wire mesh to cover any gaps between the funnel and the wall, and these devices will then allow the bats to get out, but not to get back in again.

Evicting Bats From The Attic With Netting

Another clever way of dealing with the bats is to install exclusion netting over a few of the holes that are found around the roof line. This netting allows the bats to crawl out, but as it will have been placed over the holes, the bats will not be able to understand how to crawl back in to the hole under the netting, and will be prevented from getting back in.

Repairs In The Attic

Once you have evicted the bats from the attic, you will need to carry out the repairs to make the area safe to use again, and when it comes to cleaning the guano you will need to ensure that you wear a breathing mask and protective clothing as it can carry disease. It is also important that you permanently seal all of the holes around the roof, to prevent any other bats from returning to the property.

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
To get an exact price for your specific wildlife problem, just give us a phone call any time, 24-7, and describe your situation. We will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone, and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment for a full inspection and exact price quote in writing.

Albuquerque Animal News Clip: Family digs up gray opossum to aid investigation

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.
