Animal Removal

The need for animal removal has been increasing drastically. Critter Control of Kansas City specializes in the removal of bats, squirrels, house mice, raccoons, norway rats, woodchucks, skunks, pigeons and opossums. Animal removal is an important step in animal control. If the animal is not removed, the damage repair and clean up process cannot begin. Due to government spending cuts, much of the animal removal has been left in the hands of private individuals. Critter Control knows how time consuming, tiresome, and sometimes-dangerous animal removal can be. We are here to offer affordable, effective, and humane animal removal services.

Wildlife Dangers

When confronted, animals may react differently. Bats may fly around squeaking, squirrels will run and hide, raccoons may try and bite/scratch, skunks will spray, and opossums may play dead. Bottom line is all animals are unpredictable and should not be handled by an untrained homeowner. Our technicians go through extensive training on how to correctly approach, trap, and remove wildlife in the safest way possible. If you suspect you may have an infestation, give us a call!

Many Kansas City area homeowners have woken up to the sound of something crashing around outside at night, only in time to catch a glimpse of a furry critter foraging through their garbage. Raccoons and opossums are the most common culprits of this nuisance behavior and will almost always return to where they've found a food source before. Both Raccoons and opossums can become agitated and aggressive when approached or cornered, so keep your distance and give us a call instead. We can help you trap your pesky nighttime visitors and give you suggestions and solutions to prevent them from returning in the future.

Animal Noises

When you awake to scratching noises or sounds of chewing/gnawing on wood, those are the signs of a house mice infestation. House mice will chew up furniture and occasionally chew on wires, making a fire hazard in your home! Critter Control of Kansas City will find all points of entry, remove the animals, repair points of entry and put measures in place to help prevent future animal control problems.

Wildlife inside or outisde, big or small pests, whatever your animal removal needs, we can help. Call our Kansas office at 913.912.8985 or our Missouri office at 816.654.6922 for an inspection today!
