Our Process

We have developed an incredible and innovative process that is unique to our company to remove wildlife animals from your residence without harming the critters.  We use a variety of methods including live-traps, hormones, state of the art lights, and static noise. Our exclusion method guarantees your unwanted guest will not return. Our unique method allows all wildlife animals involved to leave together, allowing for the males to leave with their partners and nurturing females to leave with their offspring.
