How We Solve Clarksville Wildlife Problems

It starts with your phone call. We answer our phones 24/7, and we will carefully listen to your wildlife problem. Every case is different, so we will ask appropriate questions to help us understand the situation better. Questions like, "do you hear the noises at night or during the daytime?" or "what type of roof do you have?" After we have a general idea of your situation, we can provide a ballpark price range, and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment to inspect your property.

INSPECTION: Once on site, we will perform a full inspection of your home and property. This allows us to use the correct strategy and traps. If the animals are in an attic, a full building inspection is crucial, including the following:

  • All ground-level areas, such as piper or A/C line entry & exit areas, A/C chase bottoms, ground-level vents, etc.
  • All mid-level areas, such as dryer vents, siding gaps, first floor eaves or dormers, etc.
  • We inspect the entire roof, including all plumbing stacks, ridge caps, vents, and other potential gaps or holes.
  • We also inspect inside your attic, to identify animals and damage they have caused.
  • If the animals are outside, we notice many subtle clues that will assist us in a successful strategy.

TRAPPING, EXCLUSION, REMOVAL: Once we understand what animal species we are dealing with, and the problem, we use the most effective means of removing the animals. We use dozens of different types of traps.

  • Trapping - If trapping the animal(s) in live cage traps, trap type, set, and location are crucial to success.
  • Exclusion - Oftentimes, we are able to simply set one-way doors or other exclusion devices that allow the animals inside a building to safely exit, but never get back inside.
  • Removal By Hand - Sometimes we actually remove animals by hand, or with special tools like snare poles.
  • The Law - In all cases, we obey state and local laws regarding wildlife, but aim to take the most humane approach.

ENTRY HOLE REPAIRS: Repairs are a crucial step in the wildlife removal process. In many cases, such as bat or rodent control, the job cannot be performed without detailed repairs, and in all cases, sealing the entry holes shut ensures that no future wildlife will ever enter your home.

  • 100% of the entry holes must be found, and sealed shut, or the job is not complete.
  • Our repairs are professional contractor grade, look good, and when applicable we use steel, which rodents such as rats or squirrels are unable to chew through.
  • We give a written guarantee on our repairs against any future animal entry.

ATTIC DECONTAMINATION SERVICES: It may be desirable to clean your attic after we've removed the animals. They can leave behind large amounts of droppings, urine, hair, oils, food, nesting material, and so on. These remnants can attract insects like cockroaches, and the scent left behind can encourage new animals to chew their way into your house. You might experience odor problems from the waste. It's possible that mold will grow on waste areas.

  • We remove or vacuum all droppings, or remove all the soiled insulation.
  • We fog the attic with a special enzyme-based cleaner that destroys any organic matter and deodorizes the space.
  • We repair damage, such as ductwork, electrical wires, pipes, insulation, and more.
The above are just a brief explanation of some of our methods. I haven't even addressed the hundreds of other potential cases that we deal with, from bat exclusions, to poison-free rodent control, to dead animal removal, bird roosting prevention, mole trapping in a yard, ground-based exclusion barriers around a shed, etc. etc. Just give us a call any time, and we can describe in detail how we will resolve your specific wildlife problem.

Raccoons love to scavange through neighborhood trashbins to find food. If you've been finding that your bins are knocked over with trash scattered about, you may have a raccoon problem. If you can't seem to deter these pesky little critters from your trash, we can help. We specialize in trapping and removing these critters from your property. We answer our phones 24/7, so give us a call! We service the following cities: Oak Grove, Cadiz, Dover, Tennessee Ridge, Crofton, LaFayette, Pembroke, Cumberland City, Springfield, Hopkinsville KY, and Fort Campbell KY. We also service the following counties: Stewart County, Christian County, and Trigg County.

What are some humane ways to kill an armadillo in a cage?

If you have the problem with the armadillos because they are digging your yard or they throw away the dirty in every place. Regardless of the problem that may face the armadillos, you may want to kill the armadillos.

The way to kill the armadillos, the first one is to try out the poison. You can go to the local department store and in the wildlife eradication aisle; they will be some selection of the poison for the armadillos. You can then sprinkle the poison at the yard where the armadillos feed and pour the poison in a hole. You may also set the body grip trap like the connibear of 120. You can find the armadillos burrow and you can set the trap at the hole and when it works in, it will be dead.

You can also get the trusty rifle and the shotgun to kill the armadillos. However, even if all the above methods can help you to kill the armadillos and they are the best way to kill the armadillos and they are not against the law, you have to know that there is the best way to deal with the armadillo’s problem by not killing them. It is hard to kill them and it can take too much work. It is dangerous in your case or other animals since the poison or grip traps may kill other animals such as the cats or the dogs. The recommended way to deal with the armadillos is to trap them in the live cage and then to relocate them in five miles from your home and this is an easier and humane way to deal with them instead of setting up a lethal trap or to shoot them. So far as the wild animals are concerned, we all are not comfortable to have them at home as neither a pet nor we want them near about us anyway. This is just because of many common reasons.

When it comes to kill the armadillos, it can be easier to shoot them since their armor are not able to protect them and a strong gun can penetrate into the plates. However, the problem with shooting is that armadillos can be found 24 hours every day and they may come around every hour during the night and then they may move around faster while rooting within the soil. This makes it hard to find and to shoot animal.
