Nuisance wildlife in Denver and across the front range has become more common on residential properties since more homes were built in their natural habitat. Rats, squirrels, Raccoons, and other wildlife find their way into homes seeking shelter and a safe place for their offspring. All wildlife has different sleeping patterns, eating habits, and are easily distinguished by our wildlife experts. These animals often become destructive to attics, leave trails of urine and feces, and carry numerous diseases with them.
Although is it not common for homeowners to become ill from wildlife infestation, it is imperative to properly resolve the wildlife issue for the safety of those living there and to protect your property.
Rats have the ability to transmit Hantavirus through their urine, feces, and saliva. Squirrels have a habit of constantly chewing wiring in the attic space which can be detrimental to A/C systems and has been known to cause fires.
Raccoons carry numerous diseases such as rabies and can be very destructive to anything in your attic space.

Rapid Pest Control 3 Step Process
Step One - Trapping
To start the resolution of your wildlife issue, our Animal Removal specialist will begin trapping. These animals will be trapped in your attic, walls, crawlspace, and subfloor depending on your property's construction. Trapping requires two service appointments per week for up to two weeks but is flexible depending on the type of infestation. We safely trap wildlife using live cages. All of the traps are set before the initial exclusion work is started so that the animals are not left without a food source. We use species-specific animal removal techniques for the animal’s safety. Many clients and our competitors use rat traps for rodent issues without success. This is not the best solution because the wildlife still has access to their preferred food source outside of the home. We make sure that the property is completely sealed up after all of the traps are set so that the animals no longer have access to their traditional food source.
Step Two - Exclusion
The second step in our process is to seal up all of the entry points with a metal-based product. This is done both on the roof and ground level. All roof returns, A/C lines, attic vents, chimney caps, and weep holes will be permanently sealed up. This will not only prevent new wildlife from entering your home but will eliminate the food source to any animals that are in your attic. The wildlife in the attic will then search for an internal food source and find themselves in one of our cages. It is imperative to understand how many entry points your home has related to the current rodent issue and the entry points that can be a future issue. Rapid Pest Control not only seals up the areas related to your current problem but ALL potential entry points so that you will never have any type of animal invade your home in the future.
All of the wildlife removal services is performed by our technicians rather than sub-contractors like many of our competitors. The technician that did the initial inspection will perform all three steps of our process.
Step Three - Attic Treatment & Restoration
After all of the animals have been removed from the attic space, properly decontaminating is absolutely necessary. Most of the wildlife species found in homes today have a variety of diseases and are naturally dirty animals. They leave trails of urine and feces throughout the attic space and a strong scent of pheromones. The pheromones lingering in the attic invites more animals back into your home because the animals will believe it is still a nesting site.
Our anti-microbial fogging treatment will completely sanitize the attic space and removed pheromones. This is done after we have verified that there is no longer any wildlife living inside the home. The treatment will kill any hazardous spores contained in urine and feces. The treatment will also kill any fleas or mites that are often brought along with the wildlife. Applying the attic treatment will ensure that your entire attic space is properly decontaminated.
In severe cases of wildlife infestation, it is necessary to do a complete attic restoration. This includes completely removing all of the existing insulation and blowing in new insulation. This will completely remove all urine, feces, and old nesting sites. Once all of the old insulation is removed, we will inspect all of your electric wiring, ductwork, and condition of the attic space. This ensures that your property is completely decontaminated.
Noises In Your Attic?
Most of our customers first notice a wildlife issue when they hear noises in their attic. These noises might be heard at a variety of times throughout the day and have different sounds depending on the animal. It is imperative to have a wildlife expert diagnose your issue immediately if you hear an animal in your attic. This is often a sign of wildlife infestation. If you have looked into your attic space and do not see that wildlife, it doesn’t mean you don’t have a problem. Many wildlife species are nocturnal and will not be active during the day while other types of wildlife will have left your attic space during the day. If you hear noises in your attic, one of our animal removal experts can quickly diagnose your issue and provide you with immediate relief.
