If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Cleveland home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Ohio 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 Cleveland, and I recommend the following:
Precise Wildlife Services
Cell Phone: 440-941-3982
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Cuyahoga County Animal Services: 216-525-7877
Precise Wildlife Services specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Ohio also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Precise Wildlife Services 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 440-941-3982
to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
- Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
- Fully Ohio and Cuyahoga County licensed and insured
- Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Precise Wildlife Services is a full-service Cleveland wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Cleveland pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Precise Wildlife Services 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.
Cleveland wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Ohio 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 Ohio law. We offer Cleveland raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Precise Wildlife Services. 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 Cleveland 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 Cleveland 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 Cleveland rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Ohio 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 Cleveland pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Cleveland 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 Cleveland trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Cleveland 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. Precise Wildlife Services does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Precise Wildlife Services. 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
. Precise Wildlife Services
also provides dead animal removal in Cleveland. 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 Cleveland snake removal - most of the snakes in Ohio are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Cleveland. And remember, we are a private business, not Cuyahoga County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 216-525-7877.
Cuyahoga County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Cleveland Wildlife Tip #1:
How to Keep Squirrels Away - Squirrels tend to destroy the furniture especially the one made up of wood. One needs to spray something on the wood that works as a repellent for squirrels thus the best way to keep squirrels away from the furniture. For this purpose Ropel or mixture of hot sauce can be used. Before one uses this technique to drive away the squirrels make sure he or she should protect the eyes before starting the spray on the furniture. Since vegetable, fruits or flower garden is a source for food for squirrels one can do simple things to make sure that they do not enter those premises. Plastic mesh is one of the things used for this regard. In order to drive squirrels away from especially the areas where one plans to plant flowers or have planted them there. The plastic mesh is laid over the area from where one needs to drive away the squirrels. Since plastic mesh makes it difficult for the squirrels to dig in that areas as it hurt to do so. One can also protect the garden from these squirrels by using different types of pepper. Since squirrels deter the pepper thus they avoid such places. In pepper one can use black or cayenne as both have no effect on the vegetation in the garden. There are other odors that also help such kind of situation. The odors that can be used for this purpose are nutmeg, crashed jalapeno peppers etc. these scents not only drive the squirrels away but prevent them from digging into the garden beds due the scent of the peppers. They tend to leave those areas than thus vegetables, fruits and flowers are saved from their invasion.
Cleveland Wildlife Tip #2:
Shooting Skunks - People who reside in rural areas tend to kill skunks more often as compared to one's living in urban areas. The easy was to get rid of a skunk in rural areas is to shoot them. Though killing skunks in those areas is not a good option because guns are always dangerous. Moreover, when a person shoots the skunks its blood spills over place of shooting thus causing rabies and other diseases. One has to look into this matter first before ending up shooting a skunk in the near area. Furthermore, for shooting a skunk one needs to be careful about choosing the gun for this purpose. A good option for this can be a .22 rifle. This good should have a sound suppressor along with it because if one misses the first short one has another but if there is sound the skunk will run away after hearing the first gun shot. In order to kill a skunk one should aim for its back. The first shot should be in the middle of the back thus making it impossible for the skunk to ran away. Reason is the bullet will damage the areas of the back in a way that the skunk would be paralyzed due to the damage in the spinal cord. The second shot is in the head so that one is done with the killing job. One a skunk is shot he spray the liquid to defend himself so before the second shot to the head one should be ready for the spray.

Welcome to Ohio, the state where there aren't many mountains, but there are plenty of forests and fields for animals to enjoy. Not only does this state have a nice mixture of habitats, the landscape is generally universal when it comes to climate. Ohio does occasionally have a tornado, and it can have an earthquake or two, but most of the time the summers are hot and the winters are cold. This climate eliminates some of the heat-loving critters in the southern states, but it does keep those common creatures that live around homes comfortable.
The most common nuisance animals in Ohio are raccoons, snakes, bats, geese, swans, squirrels, woodpeckers, skunks, and opossums. Homes in this state are well-insulated against the cold winters, making them ideal locations of critters that like to climb into an attic. Rats are frequent visitors in the city areas, and homeowners without rats usually have a mouse or two. People living closer to nature, or those with an urban raccoon issue, sometimes find the animals up in the attic. This can be particularly problematic, especially because most raccoons in an attic have a littler of babies nearby. While not as common, the occasional opossum will also invade a home in Ohio from time to time.
Coyotes and black bears rule the food chain in this state, though the bears are less of a nuisance than the intelligent canines. Coyotes will hunt in packs, picking off livestock or entering suburbs where they feed on pets and harass small children. A determined coyote will even climb a fence if it is hungry enough to want the pet inside the yard. The black bears are nuisances mostly at campgrounds or in places where people leave garbage out overnight. The bear is an extremely strong animal, and a secured garbage can lid won't be enough to deter these predators.
In the river valleys, Ohio has a number of industrious beavers, otters, and muskrats. Homeowners living near streams may find themselves suddenly flooded due to a recently constructed dam. For the most part, muskrat concerns belong to the county. Government officials need to worry about dike walls being compromised by the burrowing muskrat. Due to the decent amount of precipitation this state receives annually, semi-aquatic animals tend to thrive in Ohio.
