Wildlife control

Terminix® will identify animal intruders, determine the most effective way to get them out of your home and then customize a solution to keep them from coming back.

How wildlife control works


Wildlife inspection

Through an in-depth inspection, we'll determine how, where and why wildlife are entering your property. Then we'll customize a plan to get them out and keep them out.

    How do you get rid of wildlife?

    Raccoons, opossums and other wildlife pests can find and create entry points into your home looking for food, water and shelter. Once in your home, they can chew through wires, destroy property and belongings, eat drywall and more. Terminix wildlife control professionals are trained to effectively remove the nuisance wildlife, as well as find and seal the entry points they’re using to get into your home. You can get started with a FREE inspection.

Frequently asked rodent control questions
How often does Terminix visit for wildlife service?

Depending on your customized protection plan, we typically return annually for a Wildlife Control Plan, for as long as you keep your plan.

What are the best baits for mice or rats?

Contrary to popular belief, cheese is not a good bait for mice or rats. Peanut butter and chocolate work well as long as you don’t put too much on the trap. Work the bait onto the trap’s trigger so that it’s hard for the rodent to get it off and it will be forced to climb the trigger. Or you can always call Terminix to come and inspect your problem and properly set baits and traps.

When can I start a Wildlife Control service?

If you’re having problems with wildlife getting into your home, you can get started with Terminix today by scheduling a free inspection.

Why do I need service in the winter months when insects are inactive?

That’s the thing, pests are never inactive. Though it may be cold outside, it’s nice and warm in your home — which is exactly what wildlife pests, animals, and rodents are looking for in the wintertime. So, we help keep them out through inspection and sealing of entry points around your home.
