How We Solve Boise 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.
When we arrive, we’ll go over your home or commercial building with a fine-toothed comb, using a tried-and-tested 32-point inspection system that will help us to identify problem areas. These are the places wildlife are gaining entrance into your property. That’s what has made our service so popular - we do the job right, from start to finish, essentially taking the stress out of the volatile situation you have found yourself in. We promise never to use poisons in our wildlife removal work. It’s not only ineffective, but inhumane too, and we prefer to take a safer, more humane approach to the way we go about our job. What we do use is a series of tried-and-tested methods that we have picked up with our ten years’ experience in the business, and the latest sate-of-the-art tools and equipment that ensures a safe and humane removal of the critter from your property. We like to pride ourselves on many things, one of which is being one of the most effective rodent control companies in the area, without the need to resort to poisons. We solve the problem, rather than kill it off, identifying entrance holes and sealing them shut, whilst working with the best exclusion devices at the same time. This mix of methods is tried-and-tested, and our reviews speak for themselves. Get in touch for your free wildlife control and removal quote today.

Using traps to deal with chipmunks
Traps offer one of the most effective ways to get rid of tiny but hyperactive chipmunks from your yard or garden. As these creatures are small and appear like rats, it is possible to use use the same varieties of traps for chipmunks that you would otherwise use for rats. The market is currently loaded with a wide range of traps that can be used for chipmunks. Both snap traps, as well as the live traps, are a good option for getting permanent relief from chipmunks. Note that snap traps follow inhumane methods to kill them, whereas, in case of live traps, you have to find a location to dispose of them out of your property. But before you use any of these methods, note that chipmunks are one of the protected animals in few states of America. Hence, it is good to check the law first to deal with these creatures.
Using repellents to deal with chipmunks:
Homeowners that are not interested in killing or harming chipmunks but want them to get out of property are advised to use repellents. The market is currently loaded with wide range of repellent and deterrent solutions. Some of the most commonly used chipmunk repellents are hot peppers, pureed garlic, or a combination of both. All that you need to do is mix pureed garlic with some amount of hot peppers in one cup and then add some hot soapy water. Let it cool down for some time and then strain and add one tablespoon of oil. It is time to shake the solution and then pour it into a spray bottle. Go out and spray it on the plants that you want to save from chipmunks. Other than this, you can use castor oil, ammonium soap and predator urine to get rid of chipmunks.
Using fences to get rid of chipmunks:
Another good option to keep chipmunks out of premises is installing fences all around. But before you install them, it is important to know that chipmunks are great diggers, so they can also create a path to enter your home below the ground. Hence, it is important to install fences that are buried below the ground for few inches to block the underground path as well.
