Raccoons are a common nuisance animal along the Front Range. If you start to notice these little critters in or around your home, you should call a local wildlife control specialist right away. These mammals are known for carrying a list of dangerous diseases, including rabies. Raccoons can also cause a good amount of property damage if you let them roam around your property. They love to dig in vegetable gardens and eat sweet corn, peas, and other goodies that you’ve worked so hard to cultivate.


Did you know that Colorado is home to more than 400 bird species? Birds can be difficult to get rid of because there are federal laws in place that limit the types of removal methods that can be used. While birds themselves don’t do much damage on their own, their droppings can. Bird droppings are filled with harmful bacteria that can pose a risk to your health.
