We can only give prices over the phone, but read below for a better idea. Everyone wants fair and clearly stated prices for goods and services. But in the field of wildlife removal, every job is different. It's like asking, "how much will it cost to fix my car?" - it depends on what's broken, the type of car, etc.
In wildlife control, the type of animal, number of animals, the problem they are causing, the damage they have done, the type of building they are in, and so on, all factor into the price. In short, you simply need to call your local branch,
describe your problem, and you can get a price estimate on the phone. If you like what you hear, you can schedule an appointment. If the job is complex, a final price can't be quoted until a full on-site inspection of your home has been performed.
We are of course very conscious of cost concerns, and provide an excellent bargain. It's important to know that not all wildlife control companies are the same. Our methods always result in a permanent solution, and we are the best long-term value
for the investment you've put into your house or building. You can possibly hire a cheaper company that promises a cheap solution, such as simple ground trapping (without addressing prevention and home repairs) or poisoning for a low quarterly rate,
but the problem will continue forever. When we come to your house and do the job correctly, you'll never have to see us again. It's also very likely that you can hire someone more expensive than us, who will do a considerably worse job. We pride
ourselves on the finest work in the industry. Finally, be aware that failure to address the problem could wind up far more costly - animals cause damage, and the longer the problem is not addressed, the worse the damage can become.
How about some ballpark price guesses? Sure, here are some examples, but they aren't set in stone:
- Raccoons In Attic: A very complex case. This almost always involves an adult female and a litter of baby raccoons. The nest of baby raccoons must be removed, and the mother trapped. This requires multiple service visits. The entry holes
must be found and repairs are often extensive. The attic might need cleaning, and damage to ducts, insulation, etc might be necessary. The total job might range from $300 on up for a complete solution.
- Rodents In a Building: Also complex. The problem will never be permanently solved until all possible entry points into a building are sealed shut with steel. Rats and mice can enter through very small holes, including plumbing lines,
roof pipes, and any area they can chew into. They must all be trapped and removed, and this requires multiple service visits. It's possible that the attic could require cleaning afterward. The total job might be $300 on up.
- Simple Ground Trapping: This is a lot simpler. If you need nuisance animals trapped and removed, we will likely charge a service call visit to come to the property and set up the traps. The traps will need to be monitored,
the animals removed, and driven to relocation points, or euthanized and cremated if your state law requires it. Even these simple jobs take several service visits, and the animals must be dealt with after capture. The total job might be $200 on up.
- Dead Animal Removal: In most cases, the carcass must be found, and this usually requires crawling through the attic, under a house, etc. In many cases, the animal must be cut out of a wall, and the area repair. Cleanup is also part
of the job. The total might be $150 on up.
- Snake or other Animal Removal: A one-trip job, such as the removal of a snake, or a single animal like a possum in the garage, etc, is the simplest of all possible jobs, and it might be $100 on up.
Those are just a few examples. There are hundreds of different possible situatuions. I apologize that I can't list a full menu of fixed prices nationwide. Prices vary considerably depending on the type of job. Luckily, all you have to do is call your local branch, 24/7,
and you will get a price estimate, taylored to your specific wildlife problem, over the phone.
Hiring a competent service technician, in any field, is not cheap. That goes for plumbers, electricians, and more advanced specialty fields like nuisance wildlife removal. Here are some of the special considerations for nuisance wildlife control professionals:
- Licensing & Certification: Wildlife removal is regulated by special state laws issued by state Wildlife, Fish & Game commissions, as well as state departments of agriculture. In addition, our technicians have all applicable state and local
- Liability Insurance: We carry liability insurance, to protect ourselves and you against possible accidents or damage inherent in dealing with the risks of climbing on roofs, in attics, dealing with unpredictable wildlife, etc.
- Danger & Risks: This is a dangerous industry, involving extensive ladder work, work on roofs, inside attics, under homes, etc. Not to mention the risk of handling wild animals, which can injure or transmit a variety of potentially lethal diseases.
- Advanced Training: Nuisance wildlife removal is a highly complex field, requiring several years' worth of training before true expertise.
- Equipment: Each of our technicians has a service truck, with contractor cap and ladders, and dozens of different types of traps and tools, from large cage traps, to excluder funnels, to snake tongs, to snare poles, and so on.
Wildlife control is highly specialized work, it is subject to state and even federal laws, it is more expensive in the end to ignore a problem or hire a shoddy company, and no two jobs are exactly alike. Click below to call your local
