Bat Control

Missouri Bat Control

​We are a local family owned and operated Missouri based Nuisance wildlife control company. We are proud members of NWCOA (National Wildlife Control Operators Association) and NWCOA Bat Standard Certified. Because of the demand for bat control in all areas of Missouri we have expanded outside our normal service route. We have provided bat and other animal trapping services on residential homes and commercial buildings for 8 plus years. We are a ethical and humane wildlife trapping company, specializing in bat removal and colony relocation. We trap, exclude and relocate all nuisance wild animals small to large. All of our bat removal services are done by live exclusions through a one way door system. We have successfully completed thousands of live bat exclusions guaranteed backed with a warranty. Once the bats and animals are excluded, we perform all the necessary proofing repairs to prevent the bats and other wildlife pest from returning. ​ ​​

What is Bat Exclusion ?

Bat exclusion is removing the bats from your home, office, or building, through ethical and humane ways. Here is some information on the process we use to exclude bats.

  • Bat inspection: You set up an appointment for us to come out and inspect the interior and exterior of the property for bats or bat guano.
  • Exclusion report: You will receive an exclusion report stating any and all entry points, damages, contamination, and repairs necessary to prevent future entry, along with the cost for the total bat exclusion.
  • Phase 1: in phase one we will seal all secondary entry points on the home and install 1 Way Door Bat Valves. The Bat Valves will allow the bats to exit the home on their own but will not allow them to return.
  • Phase 2: After 7-10 days we will reinspect to ensure all bats have vacated the property. Once the bats have left, we will remove the bat valves and seal the main entry points on the property.
  • Clean Out: We clean out, disinfect, and deodorize the areas of the building were the bats were present, sometimes this includes removing contaminated insulation and re-insulating the attic.
  • Warranty: All repairs performed by Trapper Joe's comes with a renewable warranty.

What does Bat Guano look like?

Bat Guano Looks a lot like mouse droppings. You can distinguish between bat droppings and mouse droppings in two ways. First, bat droppings tend to be clustered as they will pile up below where the bat is roosting. Second, bat droppings will have a shiny speckled appearance (from all the insect wings) and will crumble like dust when touched. Mouse droppings on the other hand, tend to be scattered about and become hard when dry.

Damages and Disease

Bats can cause great damage to your attic and become a health hazard. Attic restoration or clean up of damaged insulation is highly recommended to get your attic to its correct condition. Bat guano (their feces) carry a wide range of bacteria and fungi spores which can become airborne if not treated correctly. We are certified, licensed, and insured bat control specialists. Ask nearly anyone, and you’ll hear that bats (although beneficial in insect control) can be dangerous because they carry rabies. But a lesser known danger, and one that is not as easy to avoid, is histoplasmosis, a disease you can get from exposure to bat guano (bat droppings).

What is Histoplasmosis?

It is an infectious disease caught by inhaling the spores of the histoplasmosis capsulation fungus. While it is not contagious, the disease can affect a wide variety of the population who may not even be aware they are at risk

Squirrel Control

Have squirrels invaded your property?

They may seem cute, but squirrels can be carriers of diseases, and left to their own devices, they can cause a lot of damages. Not only to the exterior of the home but inside also, such as, electrical wires, wooden structures, and many more. If squirrels have decided to make your property their home, you need a fast, dependable squirrel control service that eliminates the problem efficiently. And that's where Trapper Joe's Nuisance Wildlife Control comes in.

Our team of squirrel control experts can help eradicate your problem once and for all. When you call on us, we'll arrive on the scene to evaluate the situation and implement solutions that work to not only rid you of squirrels, but prevent them from returning.

With affordable rates and flexible scheduling, Trapper Joe's Nuisance Wildlife Control is the team to turn to when squirrels wreak havoc on your property.

Squirrel Damage

Your Trapper Joe's technician will assess the damage caused by the nuisance squirrels and provide solutions not only for repairing the damaged area but will also present a prevention strategy, which may include securing the squirrels’ entry points to your home or business. Once the family of squirrels has entered your attic area they will essentially settle in and make it home. They will establish areas to sleep, urinate and eat. They have a tendency to be very destructive, and despite their small size, squirrel damage in attics is often extensive. The sooner these issues are handled and addressed by our squirrel removal expert, the lower the overall cost. Don’t wait to call us if you hear squirrels in your attic!

Skunk Control

Skunks can be one of the most aggravating, furry menaces people can ever have to endure. They stink, and they make no distinction when feeling threatened. If you encounter them, there's a good chance they'll spray their putrid scent all over the place. So when you find that you’ve got a real skunk problem, it's important to get help quickly. And that's where we come in.

We Find Them at the Source

At Trapper Joe's Nuisance Wildlife Control, our skunk control experts have been trained to handle skunks in all the places they can be found. That means we’re hunting out skunks that are:

  • Festering in gardens
  • Scouring among your hedges for food
  • Infesting your stately trees
  • Building dens under your porch or deck for their babies​

After we trap, remove, and relocate the skunks, we exclude your home to insure that it is critter proof, so they can not regain entry. All exclusion repairs performed by Trapper Joe's, come with a 1 year renewable warranty to give you the peace of mind knowing you are critter free.

If you think you have a skunk problem, you shouldn't hesitate to call for help. Contact us now for more information about our skunk control services.

Skunk Behavior

Skunks often nest under porches or burrow under sides of homes. Skunks can get into homes or businesses through relatively small holes, and once inside can create nests or create messes. They are also good climbers and can get higher up on buildings before making entry in attics or other areas. Skunks should not be confronted by an untrained property owner. Skunk spray is very difficult to remove, and can cause temporary blindness if it gets in the eyes. Skunks also are capable of causing significant wounds by biting or scratching and are known to carry rabies. They generally give some type of warning before spraying, usually by stomping their front feet.

Skunks can cause considerable damage as they gain entry and inhabit homes or businesses. They can leave behind feces and urine, plus stubborn scents and stains if they spray their scent. Trapper Joe's specialists can help with skunk damage repair and prevention.
