If you have a problem with wildlife in your Bardstown home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Kentucky wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Kentucky and Bardstown, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Nelson County Animal Services: (502) 348-1865
Pest Animal Removal Louisville specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Kentucky also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Pest Animal Removal Louisville is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 502-996-8856 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2023.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Pest Animal Removal Louisville is a full-service Bardstown wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Bardstown pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Pest Animal Removal Louisville performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Bardstown wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Kentucky to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know. Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Kentucky law. We offer Bardstown raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Pest Animal Removal Louisville. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Bardstown squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Bardstown exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Bardstown rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Kentucky is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Bardstown pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Bardstown bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Bardstown trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Bardstown wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Pest Animal Removal Louisville does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Pest Animal Removal Louisville. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. Pest Animal Removal Louisville also provides dead animal removal in Bardstown. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Bardstown snake removal - most of the snakes in Kentucky are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Bardstown. And remember, we are a private business, not Nelson County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (502) 348-1865. Nelson County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Bardstown Wildlife Tip #1:
WHAT PROPERTY MODIFICATIONS WILL KEEP DOWN PIGEON POPULATIONS?
You are reading this post either because pigeons have started invading your property or your neighbour's property and you don't want to repeat the same for your house. Pigeons have a human connection as they were carriers of messengers in earlier centuries and may be that is the reason that even when they are not domesticated, they are fearless. As a house owner, you should conduct thorough inspection of your house and should take necessary steps to ensure adequate protection. This post will help you in guiding about those modifications which you should invest your money into to keep population of pigeon down.
Installation of pigeon deterrents: There are many pigeon deterrents available in market which will pigeon proof your property. Bird netting, wires, spikes and slopes are available easily and can be installed. They might be little expensive and require skilled labourers to install but is worth spending if your area is pigeon prone. Pigeon deterrents help in covering all the potential places and thus it can be said that if there is no place left to land then it equals 'no pigeons zone'.
Pigeon repellents: These are the easy and quick solutions to keep pigeons away from your property. However, the shortcomings of these are they can be applied only at reachable areas of the house. if some areas are out of your reach then you might not be able to spread the repellents there. These are in form of gel or liquid form and are slimy, soft, sticky or even feels hot to pigeons. Pigeons will stop visiting your place again! These are cheap and effective and can be easily applied but they can be little messy at times and there are only few popular brands for such items.
Stainless steel mesh for windows: If you want to keep your windows and doors open but due to threat of pigeons entering your home, you don't do it then here is a solution for it. You can invest some amount in installing stainless steel mesh over your windows. This way you can enjoy the view and ventilation without worrying about the pigeons occupying the area. These are aesthetically subtle and can be customised as per the size of the windows and character of your home.
Sloppy roofs: Have you seen most of the people preferring their ceilings and roofs as sloppy like a hut? The reason of it is to keep pigeons away as it makes difficult for the pigeons to sit comfortably for the long period of time on slanting surfaces. The nature of such surfaces is not pigeon friendly and thus this can be one of the modifications that you can think of!
You need to keep this is mind that keeping pigeons away from your property is not something which can happen in one day by spray-on remedy and what works for one house may not even work for other. It is a completely customized solution but is worth putting your money into. This is because pigeon exclusion is the most effective solution as it help you in saving yourself from cleaning those corrosive faeces!
Bardstown Wildlife Tip #2:
Kentucky Wildlife Information:
Kentucky State bird: Northern cardinal
State mammal: Gray squirrel, Thoroughbred horse
State fish: Kentucky spotted bass
State insect: Viceroy butterfly
Kentucky is a state full of rich farmland. It has a relatively flat terrain, but the state has a nice mixture of rolling hills and flat areas covered in bluegrass. The rich vegetation has been the home of some large grazing animals through the centuries, including bison. There are no wild breeding populations of bison within the state any longer, but the country's highest population of elk makes Kentucky their home. At one point in time, the state was also the native land of cougars, red wolves, and gray wolves. All three species have since been extirpated. The only top predators are now coyotes and black bears, though the black bears tend to keep to berries and insects. Some issues have been had with bears becoming too bold around garbage cans or trash sites. In situations like these, the state game commission comes in and moves the offending bear to a new location.
Coyotes are not as commonly picked up and moved, but the canines can cause some issues with farmers if natural food supplies are low. Some resident landowners have taken to introducing llamas into herds of smaller livestock. The llamas are not afraid of coyotes, and the large creatures can easily fend off an attack.
Kentucky tends to have a humid, hot summer and then a cooler, wet winter. The state can reach cold temperatures reminiscent of the Northeast, but those days are few and far between. Because the climate is so varied and the vegetation lush, Kentucky has a fair share of the common nuisance animals in the United States. Homeowners in Kentucky have to do battle with a variety of mouse species. This is due to the thick grasses which cover most of the state. Mice love to be concealed in a thick carpet of grass. Larger nuisance creatures make their home in the state as well, including bats, raccoons, snakes, beavers, otters, porcupines, opossums, squirrels, rats, armadillos, and prairie dogs.
Middle-sized animals thrive in Kentucky bluegrass. The state has a large population of rabbits, followed by a large population of foxes and bobcats. Even in areas where trees are scarce, rabbits and foxes can move through tall grass without being detected. Their burrows are protected from sight, and they are rarely seen by the public unless invading a yard.
