Intrepid specializes in humane live trapping methods. Specific live traps are utilized depending on the animal, size, species and how they are gaining access to homeowner’s property ranging from lawns, attics, walls, crawlspaces, sheds, porches, garages and many more. Although we use a wide variety of different humane traps they all boil down to three different types; the individual live trap, a one-way excluder and a one-way multi catch trap.

  • The individual live trap: the most common, the set up is simple and the process even simpler. Used both inside and out, animal specific bait is placed inside the trap at one end, an open door at the other. The animal enters the trap and trips a pan or wire that shuts the door behind them trapping them. Once the animal is trapped we simply remove the trap and replace it then relocate the animal.
  • One-way excluder: used exclusively outdoors this device is used by attaching it over a hole or entry point which allows the animal to exit and not be able to return because of the way its designed, the animal itself is not caught but allowed to exit and not regain access.
  • One-way multicatch: Similar in design to the one-way excluder this trap is used to capture animals using an entry point or hole. The system again prevents animals from regaining access, the only difference is that they are captured in a trap and can be removed from the site to be relocated. In most instances more than one animal is captured at a time because of the design.

Because we work with a lot of different wild animals, raccoons, squirrels, bats, skunks etc they require different tools, systems, and methodology to capture them. These are wild animals and although they do act similar they can often be unpredictable which means every job must be treated differently. In addition, once all wildlife has been removed Intrepid can also provide services to seal off any vulnerabilities, entry points, holes or potential openings future wildlife can use to access your home.

What Wildlife are We Dealing with Now?

With temperatures still reaching the 90s its hard to believe that Fall is right around the corner. Right now is a good time to inspect your house’s exterior for loose boards and rotting wood for squirrels could use as an entry point because once Fall comes the squirrels will too. During the Fall we begin to receive a lot of calls about noises in the attic along with people seeing Gray Squirrels entering their homes.

Our average for Squirrel removal inside a home is between three and five. We have, in some cases, removed as many as 20. With that said, it’s imperative that people check for any vulnerabilities before it’s too late. During the Fall squirrels are generally spending most of their time gathering and storing food and nesting material in preparation for the winter. One such place they store these items are inside peoples attics which can lead to a variety of issues.

If you think you may have an issue or aren’t sure Intrepid Wildlife offers services from inspecting your home to sealing off and fixing areas before unwanted squirrels enter and even trapping and removal if they’ve already gained access. Don’t hesitate to call.
