Wildlife and Rodent Removal in Bella Vista, Farmington, Prairie Grove & Surrounding Areas

When it comes to invading wildlife in your home, there's nothing quite like the heart-stopping surprise of finding a raccoon raiding your attic, birds perching themselves on your roof, or rodents gnawing and skittering about.

Most Common Animal Invaders in Northwest Arkansas

Northern Arkansas is a region teeming with natural beauty and abundant wildlife, making it an attractive destination for various animals in search of food and shelter. Unfortunately, some of these creatures find their way into our homes, seeking the comforts and resources that human dwellings provide. At Rid-a-Pest, we're well-acquainted with the top offenders who often find their way into our homes.

Here are the most common animal invaders in Northwest Arkansas:

  • Raccoons: These intelligent and adaptable mammals are notorious for their ability to raid trash cans and create a mess in search of food. They can cause damage to your property, including tearing apart insulation and gnawing on electrical wires, posing a fire hazard.
  • Squirrels: With their nimble movements and propensity for climbing, squirrels can easily find their way into attics, causing damage as they chew through structures and insulation. They may also nest in chimneys, creating potential fire hazards and obstructing ventilation.
  • Possums: Nocturnal and scavenging by nature, possums often venture into residential areas, creating disturbances and messes while searching for food. They can take up residence in crawl spaces or under decks, causing damage and leaving behind unpleasant odors.
  • Rodents (Rats/mice): Rats and mice are common intruders, seeking warmth and sustenance within homes. They can squeeze through small openings, gnaw on structures, contaminate food, and spread diseases. Their rapid breeding habits make it crucial to address an infestation promptly.

Rid-a-Pest takes pride in our expertise in handling a wide variety of animal control issues. Whether you're facing a raccoon infestation, a snake problem, or need assistance with bird removal, our skilled technicians are equipped to handle it all. We employ humane and environmentally-friendly methods to ensure the well-being of both you and the animals involved.

Here's how we tackle various animal invasions:

  • Identifying the animal present: Our first step is to accurately identify the wildlife species causing the intrusion. By understanding the behavior and habits of the specific pest, we can develop a targeted plan of action.
  • Conducting a detailed inspection: We perform a thorough inspection of your property, seeking out entry points, nesting areas, and signs of damage. This allows us to understand the extent of the infestation and determine the best course of action.
  • Implementing humane removal methods: Rid-a-Pest is committed to employing humane wildlife removal techniques. We utilize traps and exclusion devices designed to safely capture the animals without causing harm. Our team handles the removal process with care and expertise.
  • Sealing entry points: To prevent future intrusions, we identify and seal any potential entry points the pests may use to access your property. This step is crucial in ensuring a long-term solution and minimizing the risk of reinfestation.
  • Providing prevention and exclusion services: To reinforce the effectiveness of our wildlife removal efforts, we offer prevention and exclusion services. This includes recommendations for habitat modifications, installation of deterrents, and ongoing monitoring to deter future intrusions.
  • Cleaning and sanitizing: After removing the wildlife, we can clean and sanitize the affected areas to eliminate any traces of odors, droppings, or contaminants. This helps restore a safe and healthy environment for you and your family.
