- INSPECTION - We inspect the building and property to fully understand the cause of the wildlife issue. We aim to permanently solve your problem, by addressing the cause.
- ANIMALS IN ATTICS - If you have wildlife in the attic, we enter the attic and identify the animal(s), any damage they have caused, and remove them there, if possible.

Phoenix wildlife control tip of the month: Possums in homes - the truth: If you saw a possum in your home, or heard it somewhere in your abode, would you freak out? If you said yes, you certainly wouldn't be the only person, that's for sure. That's the problem with possums - they are actually fairly tame animals that don't really cause any harm, but with the vast amount of misconceptions and myths surrounding the creature, it has gotten quite a bad rap. Take the disease factor, for example. A lot of people believe that the possum carries rabies, but this is actually very rarely the case. The body temperature of the possum is usually too low to allow the virus of rabies to survive, and although there are other diseases that are often carried by the animal, this is usually spread through things such as feces and urine, causing contamination - these are things that can be avoided with a few simple tips and hints. No one wants a wild animal living in their home, but you do need to remember that this creature could just be looking for a place to have some babies. The animal looks frightening, with 50 razor sharp teeth that it will not hesitate to bare when it feels threatened, and a set of claws that look as if they could rip an elephant to shreds, but the reality of the situation is that the bark of this animal is very much worse than the bite, and it will rarely use the tools it has at its disposal, especially at you humans. You will usually find that the possum won't even fight back against your household cat - an animal around the same size. Instead, it will either flee the scene or roll over and play dead, something that it is renowned for. Before you have a minor freak out over the fact that you have a possum living in your home or yard, remember that the creature doesn't really want to cause you any harm. So don't get into the habit of trying to poison, shoot or bang this animal away - you will more than likely do more harm than good.
Reader mail feedback: Rats from Ridge Vent on Roof Improperly Installed - We have owned our Phoenix house 23 years and never had a rodent problem. In May our roof was replaced. I found your website after our roofing company turned our ridge vents backwards (they were that way for 7 weeks), and we got rats in our attic. Now the sales manager from the roofing company said last Friday that he doesn't believe we got rats from their mistake, but we have pictures as proof. Pictures of both the ridge vent turned backwards and pictures of 2 of the dead rats. The quality control manager also left one of the pieces of the ridge vent they replaced so I could show my husband what they had done. My husband put it up and has kept it as evidence in case something more has to come of this situation. We realized there was a problem when I saw a rat running on the roof and disappear. My husband was out of town, but when he got back home, he went up and saw a big gap in the ridge vent. We managed to catch and kill the rat. A day or so later we found out, after having a contractor come out to give us an estimate on the fascia/j-channel/corners/siding the roofers damaged, that 2 ridge vents actually had big gaps. When the roofing company came back out, they said the ridge vents had actually been turned backwards. This was done by what is supposed to be GAF Master Elite Contractors in Phoenix. After the ridge vent was taken care of on Thursday, that night we started hearing the rats run through our soffit outside, over the ceiling in the kitchen and dining room, between the bedroom ceiling and enclosed garage, between the bedroom and bathroom ceilings, etc. We got a lot of traps after reviewing your website, and managed to catch and kill 4 more rats. Saturday morning, we also heard one trying to chew out (or chew into the pipe) by our water main by our bedroom wall. We banged on the outside wall and scared the rat away. In addition to the traps set with a lot of pumpkin seed and peanut butter, we put water up in the attic for the rats to keep them from chewing our pipes. We have caught and killed 10 rats now in total. Tomorrow will be 6 weeks since the ridge vents were corrected and about a week and a half or so since we caught the last rat. I haven't heard any more scratching, running, etc. A couple of traps have tripped but caught nothing, but we've had thunderstorms since. We put out more pumpkin seeds and peanut butter on the traps, and the pumpkin seeds and peanut butter were still there on the traps last weekend. We are still putting water out too, just in case. I'm now totally paranoid after this experience and afraid there could be more rats we haven't caught yet, and also that they might still be getting inside the attic, as I learned from our pest control contractor that the ridge vent on one end has about a 1/2" gap (it isn't lying flat). We were originally told it was about a 1" gap by another contractor, but my husband looked Sunday and said it is probably between 1/2"-2/3". The roofers are telling me that nothing can get in and have refused to come back out here to take care of the problem since they were notified almost 2 weeks ago (in 2 days). Also, the roofers made a 3/4" gap between my fascia by improper installation of the drip edge, so water can get inside and cause wood rot. Is that big enough to let rats in too? My pest control guy says the holes are big enough. They have known about this issue for over 4 weeks now, and promised to get out here to take care of it, but as of the last almost 2 weeks, they have refused to come take care of the issue. The contractor repairing the fascia the roofers damaged has their hands tied, as the roofers said they cannot touch any part of the roof or will void my waranty, so I may have to contact the roofing manufacturer, the Maricopa County inspectors, Angie's list (where I found the contractor), the state LLR, etc. I have enclosed pictures of the 3/4" gap in the fascia and the gaps in the ridge vent. Could you please tell me if this gaps are big enough to get more rats in/out of the house, and if not and I haven't heard anything else, is it now time to clean up, replace the insulation, and fog with bacteriacide? Or could there still be more undetected and/or smarter rats that have managed to avoid the traps? Thank you. I certainly appreciate your web site and help.
