Wild animals are supposed to reside in the wild. However, when they begin to interact too closely with humans, here are some of the major problems that they can cause.
One of the major reasons close interaction with wildlife should be avoided is because of the health risk they pose to humans and pets. Wildlife such as raccoons, bats, birds, opossums, and rats spread many diseases that can get transmitted to humans including Leptospirosis, Salmonella, hantavirus, Histoplasmosis, just to name a few.
If you’ve had a wildlife infestation problem, you have a good idea of the mess they cause. These critters will bring all sorts of nesting materials and food crumbs into your house. They will rip apart insulation materials and litter the entire attic or crawlspace.
Furthermore, they will defecate and urinate in your house or property, and litter the entire place with their droppings. This will, in turn, attract other unwanted pests and insects like cockroaches. Strong animals like raccoons and opossums will turn over trash cans to get access to the garbage.
From time to time, some wildlife gets trapped within a house and when they die, the smell that emanates from the decomposing carcass can be unbearable for homeowners.
Some animals like rodents, opossums, and raccoons are adept climbers and do take residence in houses, particularly in attics, walls, chimneys, and crawlspaces. For instance, once a raccoon identifies a vulnerable spot, either a degrading wood or weak roof tile, they expand the damage to gain access into the attic.
As soon as a wild critter begins living in an attic, the first step is to make a comfy nest. Raccoons, rats, squirrels, and more are known to tear insulation material and chew on pipes and wires. Rodents, in particular, will chew on just about anything to keep the growth of their incisors in check. Exposed wiring causes a fire hazard risk, just as a chewed beam weakens the structural integrity of a building.
Some animals like birds and opossums can cause damage to the garden by eating plants. Animals like groundhogs dig holes around the yard, destroying the landscape.
Wildlife X Team Oklahoma City is a wildlife removal company that specializes in the humane removal of animals using effective strategies that are custom-made to the unique animal and situation. Wildlife removal is no easy task. It requires the methodological execution of a well-designed strategy. Over the years, Wildlife X Team Oklahoma City has helped several homeowners successfully deal with their wildlife infestation problem. And so, we have developed and honed our process, which includes:
The first step towards solving a wildlife problem is identifying the source of the problem. We do a thorough inspection of your property until we pinpoint the root cause of your problem. For instance, if you’re having a rodent infestation problem, we check for all potential entry holes in your property, even holes the size of the diameter of a pen. If you have a raccoon or squirrel residing in your attic or chimney, we inspect that area to identify the entry point and estimate the extent of the damage.
Once we have a pretty good idea of what we’re dealing with, we then proceed to the removal phase. Each animal and situation require a unique removal strategy. For instance, if a raccoon is residing in your attic with her kits, then we have to first pick up the kits and use them to lure their mother into a trap, after which we relocate them to, at least, 10 miles away from your house. If you have a rodent infestation problem, we seal all the entry holes, then we strategically place traps around your house to help you catch them. Our team of professionals is also skilled at removing snakes from your house. Even if you have a carcass in your house, we search every nook and cranny until we locate and remove it.
Once we have successfully solved the problem, we properly decontaminate the infected spaces to prevent the spread of germs, bacteria, and diseases. We make use of enzyme-based cleaners to kill all microscopic germs. We also clear up all remnants left by the animal.
Wild animals are notorious for the damages they cause; from ripping apart insulation material to chewing on pipes. We identify all damaged materials and we repair them. We also reinforce all vulnerable points and seal all entry holes. This way, we ensure the problem doesn’t arise again.

Encountering wildlife in the wild usually fills people with excitement and wonder. However, there are times when such interactions are not so pleasant, especially when you have frequent visits by wildlife to your property or home.
Right from the beginning of human civilization, human settlement has encroached further into the natural habitat of wild animals. As a result, our interaction with them is ever-increasing; from the ancient rats that have learned to not only live among humans but also depend on them to the urban coyotes that fill the landscape of urban centers.
Wildlife control is the process of selective removal of problematic individuals or populations of specific species of wildlife. These problematic animals have learned to take advantage of the food, water, and accommodation that we offer them.
Wildlife infestations are a major problem in the United States. Even in the Oklahoma City area, homeowners are constantly troubled by nasty and persistent critters that cause constant problems. Some of the most common animals that Wildlife X Team Oklahoma City remove from the properties of homeowners include opossums, squirrels, raccoons, rats and mice, snakes, bats, and many more.
