Crestview Hills, KY Bat Removal (41017): If you have bats living in your attic or chimney, put Tri-State Wildlife Management’s experience and expertise to work for you. We offer full service exclusions and repairs to ensure that the bats are gone for good. TSWM also offers full attic cleanups after bats are removed and excluded.

Having bats in your home is an unsettling and serious problem, even if they are confined to the attic. Not only do they urinate and defecate anywhere they roost, causing staining and odor problems which are difficult to remove, they are associated with diseases which are dangerous to humans, including rabies and histoplasmosis (a lung disease caused by the spores of fungus which grow on their droppings or guano). Tri-State Wildlife Management can take care of your bat problem and make life normal again for you and your family.

While bats are very beneficial to humans because of their affinity for many flying insects, such as mosquitoes, if they find their way into your home and take up residence, they can also be some of the most destructive, dangerous, and expensive wildlife to control.

Since bats are a protected species, removal should be done by a trained professional, such as our trained technicians.  In addition, we perform repairs and/or restorations to your home or business to prevent re-entry. TSWM also offers partial and full attic cleanups after bat exclusion.

Tri-State Wildlife Management is Certified Bat Standard Compliant by the National Wildlife Control Operators Association.

Erlanger, KY Bat Control (41018) - Tri-State Wildlife Management

Bat Removal Erlanger, KY (41018): Bats become a nuisance when they roost in large numbers in houses and businesses. Despite their usefulness, discovering or even suspecting bats living in your home or business is unsettling. Due to the breeding and roosting habits of bats, timing the removal of a bat colony is crucial to both the success of the exclusion as well as its legality and therefore best left to the experts.

Bats often enter the occupied spaces of businesses or residences due to their roost being in close proximity to open windows, doors, and attic access. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s technicians are thoroughly trained in bat eviction/venting procedures and educate their customers regarding the best solution to rid their property of a bat invasion. The process starts with a meticulous inspection of the property designed to identify structural defects, as well as current and potential bat entry points that lead into the interiors of the structure. The inspection is intended to assist in the evaluation of the overall bat colony within the condition of the building.

In addition to removal/exclusion services, Tri-State Wildlife Management (TSWM) also offers full and partial attic cleanouts. TSWM employees are trained in safe and effective methods of removing bat guano and contaminated insulation. Due to the risk of exposure to diseases such as histoplasmosis, proper protective gear and equipment is vital to a safe and effective cleanout. TSWM is committed to working with home and business owners to eradicate their nuisance wildlife issue.

The courteous staff at Tri-State Wildlife will work for you to provide a cost effective solution to your bat or wildlife intrusion and/or damage issue.

Erlanger, KY Groundhog Removal (41018)

For groundhog removal in Erlanger, KY (41018), or anywhere in northern Kentucky, Cincinnati, or southeast Indiana, call Tri-State Wildlife Management at (859) 635-0037

Erlanger, KY Groundhog Removal (41018): If you have a groundhog problem or have had one in the past year, now is the time to trap groundhogs and remove them. Groundhogs are difficult to trap in mid to late spring and early summer because trapping bait must compete with delicious, readily-available food from gardens, flowerbeds, yards, etc. Fresh food is much more enticing than bait in a trap which can never stay as fresh. At this time of year, a groundhog’s food sources are limited, so we are more successful in luring them into a trap with bait.

Groundhog - Tri-State Wildlife Management

Groundhogs/Woodchucks

Although pastures and open fields are favorite areas for groundhogs to den, it is not uncommon for them to burrow in urban areas under or alongside the foundation of houses and buildings.  The main entrance to their burrow is evident by the pile of soft, powdery dirt next to the entrance. Secondary entrances are sometimes difficult to locate because they lack this pile of dirt. Each opening is about 10 inches in diameter. The groundhog’s range is surprisingly close, averaging 50-150 feet from its den.  However, males may travel long distances while looking for a mate, and these males have even been seen traveling at night.

Groundhogs become a nuisance when they excavate next to foundations or under buildings.  Their eating habits do not typically conflict with humans; however, gnawing on underground power cables or electric lines causes power outages.  The only way homeowners can discourage groundhogs from digging in their yard is to trap and remove all groundhogs in the area.

Groundhogs are found throughout much of the eastern portion of the United States, most of Canada and into Alaska.  They enjoy activity during the day, especially warm, sunny afternoons in the spring and fall.  They can often be found sunning themselves in an open field, or on a wall or fence.  The groundhog has a solid, stocky body and very strong legs.  Its front feet have long claws suited for digging burrows.  Its fur is very coarse, and mostly brown in color.  The groundhog is a member of the squirrel family; however, unlike squirrels, groundhogs fall into a deep state of hibernation during the winter months. Because groundhogs’ eyes, ears, and nose are located toward the top of their head, they can check for danger while remaining in their burrow. Groundhogs are herbivores and favorite foods are grasses (especially alfalfa and clover), vegetables and fruit. They enjoy feeding in the early morning and late afternoon.

Tri-State Wildlife Management is fully insured, we stand behind all our work. TSWM is a proud NWCOA member.

Erlanger, KY Squirrel Removal (41018): Do you hear noise coming from your attic? Do you hear scratching or running, especially during the daylight hours? If you answered yes to these questions, you may have a squirrel(s) living in your attic. Squirrels can be one of the most destructive home-intruding animals.  They often gnaw on wood, cables or electrical wiring, and almost any stored item.  The gnawing of wire is perhaps the scariest damage they do – stripping the insulation from the wires increases the chances of a short and the risk of fire. Gnawing is exactly how squirrels gain entry into your home in the first place and can chew through most construction materials, including gutter board, soffits, louver vents, siding, and fascia board.

This time of year, Tri-State Wildlife Management (TSWM) is working with many customers who are experiencing squirrel problems. As a full service company, we initiate an Integrated Wildlife Management Program beginning with an inspection and customer education. Tri-State Wildlife Management is oftentimes able to complete an inspection from the outside of a home, since construction gaps used by squirrels for entry begin on the outside, and because trapping ordinarily takes place on the outside of the home. However, attic inspections are also typically done this time of year because many female squirrels have had their young, but the young are not yet able to venture outside. Tri-State Wildlife Management is very adamant about the importance of determining the whereabouts of any juveniles to prevent any animal from getting blocked inside.

Even if the inspection determines that the violating animal is something other than a squirrel, Tri-State Wildlife Management can take care of it. Other wild animals besides squirrels that commonly invade the attic spaces of homes include raccoons, mice, and bats. After a home inspection, TSWM begins the removal and exclusion process. We have a carpenter on staff that effectively excludes wildlife and repairs damages, but also knows and understands the importance of aesthetics.  TSWM also offers prevention, restoration, and cleanup services.

Tri-State Wildlife Management uses a variety of products and methods for repairs, prevention, and restoration.  TSWM seals homes and businesses with specialized wildlife restoration products, installs custom and standard chimney caps, vent screens/coverings, as well as barrier walls and fencing. TSWM provides habitat modification as another preventative technique. We strive for the most humane and environmentally effective techniques for dealing with wildlife problems. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s use of modern innovative methods provides sound wildlife management services to ensure the protection of our customers’ investments and health.

If you suspect squirrels are in your attic, hear noises in the attic or have squirrels crossing the roof, call Tri-State Wildlife Management.  We are experts in eliminating squirrel problems through our squirrel removal and exclusion services.  We can diagnose your problem, remove the squirrels, and provide the necessary repairs to cover holes and construction gaps that are allowing them entry into your home or business.

Erlanger, KY Mouse Removal Tri-State Wildlife Management

Erlanger, KY Mouse Removal (41018): All homes and buildings in the Tri-State Area are susceptible to mice, and many homes and businesses have mice, although we often go unaware. Mice usually stay out of sight, choosing to stay in unoccupied areas of a home or building. Attics, walls, duct work, crawlspaces, and basements are some very common places that mice reside. If mice are detected, it’s usually because they hear scratching or squeaking coming from the ceiling or walls. It can be difficult to determine whether a mouse/mice is the culprit making the noise, however, and not until a thorough inspection is complete can the animal be identified. Noises made from squirrels, birds, or bats are often mistaken for mice, and vice versa. Tri-State Wildlife Management provides removal and exclusion services for all wild animals, so no matter who the culprit is, we can take care of it for you. Less often, physical evidence left by mice is found. Some of the most common physical signs of mice include chew marks, crumbs, nesting materials, and droppings.

If mice are present, Tri-State Wildlife Management can implement a mouse trapping program. The trapping program will be targeted to the areas of the home where mice are suspected of occupying. Trap placement is based on present mouse sign and a discussion with the homeowner about where mouse sign has been observed. After the inspection and trap set up, TSWM and the homeowner stay in contact to discuss checking and removing traps.

Taylor Mills, KY Bat Removal (41015)

Tri-State Wildlife Management – Protecting You, Your Property, and Your Investment

Taylor Mill, KY Bat Removal (41015): Tri-State Wildlife Management is currently excluding bats from homes in northern Kentucky. Typically, homeowners realize they have bats living in their attic when they see bats exiting their home, or when they spot bat droppings on their home or close to it on the ground. A bat may escape into the living space of a home, which also may be an indicator you have bats living in your attic.  Bats that stayed in the area over the winter are now venturing out to feed, and bats that migrated south are returning. The mild weather gives bats the opportunity to leave the warmth of your home, just as the warmer weather has encouraged many people to rest, work, and play outside. Many people are outside in their yards or relaxing on their deck or porch around dusk, which is also the time that bats leave their roost to feed on bugs and insects. If their roost is in your attic, you may see them taking off from your home and feeding in the surrounding area.

Having bats in your home is an unsettling and serious problem, even if they are confined to the attic. Not only do they urinate and defecate anywhere they roost, causing staining and odor problems which are difficult to remove, they are associated with diseases which are dangerous to humans, including rabies and histoplasmosis (a lung disease caused by the spores of fungus which grow on their droppings or guano). While bats are very beneficial to humans because of their affinity for many flying insects, such as mosquitoes, if they find their way into your home and take up residence, they can also be some of the most destructive, dangerous, and expensive wildlife to control.

Since bats are a protected species, removal should be done by a trained professional, such as our trained technicians.  In addition, we perform repairs and/or restorations to your home or business to prevent re-entry. TSWM also offers partial and full attic cleanups after bat exclusion.

Now is the perfect time to rid your home of bats. Once females begin giving birth to young (usually mid-May), full bat exclusion work must be put on hold until all juveniles are old enough to fly (usually mid-August). Although partial repairs of at risk areas can be completed during this blackout period, Tri-State Wildlife Management is not ethically or legally able to exclude bats from your home.

Erlanger, KY Bat Removal (41018): The recent warm weather seems to have pushed everyone out of doors. Yesterday evening, the sidewalks and parks were teeming with people and pets, eagerly enjoying the freedom that comes every year when winter is finally over. Families were grilling and relaxing outside, while kids were riding bikes and playing on swing sets. Some trees are budding, and the earliest spring flowers are blooming. It seems the warmth breathed new life into everyone and everything. This is also the time of year when wildlife becomes more active. Just to give a few examples, groundhogs are venturing out of their burrows more frequently and for longer periods of times, squirrels can be seen in abundance scampering about, and raccoons are becoming more active at nighttime. Bats are also becoming active now that the cold weather is behind us.

Tri-State Wildlife Management is in the process of excluding bats from a handful of houses and a gymnasium, and we anticipate receiving an influx of bat calls in the coming one or two weeks if the weather stays on the mild side. Here’s why: The warm weather brings with it plenty of bugs and insects, which is the main diet of bats. As homeowners are outside doing evening chores or relaxing on the deck, they may spot bats flying out of their home. Most people do not even realize that their home was susceptible to bat activity; however, bats can enter and exit any hole or gap the size of a quarter or bigger, so most go undetected.

Tri-State Wildlife Management’s technician has the experience and expertise to inspect your home for all bat entries and at risk areas. As a full service company, we initiate an Integrated Wildlife Management Program beginning with an inspection and customer education, followed by exclusion of bats and repair of all wildlife damage areas . TSWM also offers prevention, restoration, and cleanup services.

Tri-State Wildlife Management uses a variety of products and methods for bat repairs, prevention, and restoration.  TSWM seals homes and businesses with specialized wildlife restoration products, installs custom and standard chimney caps, and installs vent screens/coverings. When bat cleanup services are needed or desired, it typically involves the removal of bat droppings and contaminated debris from attics or other bat invaded areas.

Since bats are a protected species, removal should be done by a trained professional, such as our trained technicians. We strive for the most humane and environmentally effective techniques for dealing with wildlife problems. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s use of modern innovative methods provides sound wildlife management services to ensure the protection of our customers’ investments and health.

Bat Removal Ft. Thomas, KY: Do you have bats living in your attic or chimney? If you had bats in your home last year, they will be back this year. Since spring has finally decided to come to the tri-state area, now is the best time to begin ridding your home of bats. Early spring is a great time to mitigate bats, for two reasons. First, spring is here to stay, so bats are active most nights.  Big brown bats, which stay here for the winter, are no longer in a state of hibernation. Little brown bats migrate south for the winter, and with the warm weather, will be (or are) returning.

The second reason early spring is a great time to mitigate bats is that females have not birthed their young. Once mid-May arrives, females begin having young, and full exclusion work must be put on hold. Some females may birth their young as late as July, so full exclusion work can only begin once all bats are capable of flying, which is usually mid-August. Tri-State Wildlife Management stays in close contact with the bat biologist at the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, who tells us, on a year to year basis, when all juveniles are flying.

Tri-State Wildlife Management handles bat removal and exclusion differently than other home-invading species; instead of trapping, bats are removed only through an exclusion process. We use bat exclusion equipment that allows bats to leave your home, but the equipment makes reentry impossible. Bats can fit through the tiniest of gaps, so our experienced technician completes a thorough inspection of your home or business to determine all entry points and at risk areas. After we are sure all bats have left, entries are repaired with wildlife grade construction materials. Bats are very persistent creatures, and without all entries and at risk areas repaired, with bat deterrent materials, they will find a way back into your home. Tri-State Wildlife Management is so confident in their bat exclusion work that we back up our exclusion repairs with a 100% guarantee.

Tri-State Wildlife Management – Protecting You, Your Property, and Your Investment

Ohio Canada Goose Removal: Dayton Daily News ran a relevant story on the increase in Canada Geese residing in Ohio. The Canada goose population in Ohio is roughly 130,000; only two decades ago, this number was less than half of the current population. Tri-State Wildlife Management knows all too well the nuisance Canada geese can become, and the Ohio Division of Wildlife says complaints have risen with the increase in population. In 1990, only 100 complaints were made concerning Canada geese. Within the past two years, 2000 online complaints have been issued. Canada goose droppings are a huge problem, as well as aggressive geese.

If unwanted Canada geese are invading the green space of your yard or town, you already know what a nuisance they can be. Canada Geese are the leading nuisance bird for lakes, parks, golf courses, businesses and homes in close proximity to water.  Aside from the overall noise and distraction, unwanted avian guests leave heaps of droppings, feathers and debris, which are unsightly and unsanitary. These droppings are often masses of diseases and can pose serious health risks. In addition to the mess, Canada Geese become very aggressive during nesting seasons and are notorious for attacking people when in close proximity to their nest.

If your home, property, or town has become subject to a Canada goose infestation, or simply a nesting pair, don’t delay, call Tri-State Wildlife Management before it gets any worse.  Tri-State Wildlife Management is a full service bird control specialist and will help rid your property of any pesky, winged intruders.
