Poneto animal removal services


Looking for Poneto wildlife removal companies? Varment Guard is fully licensed by the Indiana DNR and insured nuisance animal removal company, and we specialize in resolving all types of problems with wildlife in the Wells County city of Poneto using humane wildlife control methods. Since we trap, handle and remove wildlife, our services differ from pest control and animal control. We do not assist with dog or cat calls or insects, much like other wildlife & bat removal & exclusion companies.

Have a Bat in Your Home?

Our experts will methodically follow out your personalised action plan after you are completely satisfied with it. In our experience, we avoid using humane live traps wherever possible for a variety of reasons. The first is that other animals, including pets, can be trapped. Second, animals are incredibly intelligent, and many will refuse to be tricked into a live trap (at least not for several days). As a result, we install a cage that captures the animal as it enters or exits your home whenever possible. When it is legal, we remove and relocate the animal.

Attic Bat Removal Poneto, IN

Bat Exclusion

Looking for attic bat removal services in Poneto, IN? Any attempt by Wells County homeowners to keep out bats by sealing their entry points must be done with caution. Trapping an adult or young bat indoors may compel the animal to fly into inhabited areas or result in its death, but it can prevent bat colonies from returning later.

Removal and Trapping

When a bat is discovered in a room where humans were sleeping, it might be difficult to capture and remove it. The best method to assure safety is to contact your local licensed wildlife professional, such as those at Varment Guard Wildlife Services. The entry points that bats are utilizing to enter your home will be located while the bat inspection is being done on your property. Always leave the removal of bats in the attic to experts.

Our over 30 years of experience at Varment Guard Wildlife Services has taught us that catching squirrels in your yard or around your home is not the best solution. There are plenty of squirrels in the area to take the place of the ones you captured. The best course of action is to focus on incarcerating those who have taken up residence in your home and preventing them from returning.

Poneto Raccoon Removal Services

Looking for attic raccoon removal companies in Poneto? Raccoons can occasionally be scared away by using fear techniques, however this strategy is ineffective after the animals get used to people. Raccoon trapping and exclusion is the most efficient raccoon control strategy.

Pet food should never be left outside overnight, and trash bags should always be disposed of in containers with tight-fitting lids.

The Largest Rodents: Beavers

Animal proofing and exclusion are the most important aspects of your wildlife control part. After a den has been evacuated, blood, hair, urine, feces, and occasionally even carcasses are left behind, thereby making the den site into an open house.

This can be a complete nightmare if damage restoration has already been accomplished.

Squirrel Facts

From removal and exclusion to clean-up and repair, our team of wildlife experts offers a complete wildlife removal service. We return wildlife to its natural habitat.


Bats are mammals having forelimbs that can be used as wings. They are the only mammals that can fly for an extended period of time. Bats consume a variety of insects, including mosquitos, and can consume up to half their body weight in a single night.


Moles are small animals that are between 4-6 inches in length. Their eyes are small, their front claws are huge, and their fur is silky. Moles may dig 15-foot-long tunnels just beneath the ground at a rate of 15 feet per hour.


Opossums - Opossums are about 15-20 inches long and weigh 4-12 pounds. They have a long tail and a gray and white body with a white face.


Raccoons - With their unique black mask and ringed tail, raccoons are simple to spot. Adults weigh between 10 and 40 pounds and are about 2-3 feet long.


Skunks - Skunks are a cat-sized weasel-like American mammal with unique black-and-white striped fur. It squirts a thin spray of foul-smelling irritating fluids from its anal glands towards its assailant when threatened.

Identify Areas of Skunk Damage

Raccoons have the ability to wreak a remarkable amount of damage in a short period of time. Vent ducts, insulation, fan vents, cooling systems, insulation, and even robust wood beams can all be shredded by their razor-sharp claws and teeth. They also defecate and urinate in large quantities, usually in the same place where they have set up their "restroom." This feces and urine become lodged in the insulation and eventually soak through to the underlying wood. All of this means that your raccoon problem is unlikely to improve over time. It's only going to get worse. If a raccoon dies in your home, you'll know immediately since the smell is terrible.

Bat Removal & Control, Bat in Attic

Also keep in mind that if you have a raccoon in your home right now, you may need to use a catch pole to capture the animal by the neck and place it in the trap. During this process, the raccoon is uninjured. It's critical to be forceful since a raccoon in your home can cause important damage. Raccoons can also become VERY violent when cornered, feel threatened, or fear their kids are in risk.

Many wild animals in Indiana have learnt to adapt to their homes and even flourish in them. Some animals, for example, have discovered that attics are ideal living spaces. Other animals find shelter beneath homes or porches. These animals invariably inflict damage. Squirrels and rats, for example, enjoy chewing on electrical wires in attics, posing a major fire threat. With their droppings and parasites, raccoons can seriously contaminate an attic. The same can be said for bat and bird colonies. We specialize in resolving Indiana's wildlife issues, from snake removal to large-scale projects such as commercial bat control.

Rabies Infection Risks

Conduct a comprehensive home inspection for evidence of animal entry as the first step in resolving your wildlife problem. This inspection assists us in determining what types of animals are entering, how they are gaining access, and where they are gaining access. We can devise the finest plan of action for not just eradicating but also preventing them once the trapping process is complete.
