Neighbor\'s Gophers Come to Local Bank

A bank in West Valley City, UT, was built in a developing area near a two-acre field. This field was a gopher nursery and during nesting season the population would spill over or spread onto the bank property, destroying the landscaping. The animals feasted on the flowers and shrubs and left mounds and trails all over the lush yard. Numerous efforts, including application of some popular home-remedy repellents, failed to make a dent in the problem. It was time to get rid of gophers.

The bank became very annoyed at the mess and damage that they could do so very little about. The source of the problem wasn\'t even their own property, so how would they be able to solve it? Well, these situations are common and can usually be resolved. I encouraged the bank and the owner of the field to work together.

The owner of the field wasn\'t as motivated as the bank was to get rid of gophers, but did agree that the damage they were causing was extensive and did originate on his property. We did a complete site survey, set traps and waited to see what would happen. Even I was surprised at the results. The population density was far above average over the next two weeks we trapped 23 animals off the combined properties. We were very careful in our trapping techniques and follow-up to make sure all the animals were gone from both locations. You don\'t want to leave \"seed\" animals that quickly sprout into a whole new crop of problems.

The bank was happy to have the animals gone. The owner of the field was glad to have a happy neighbor instead of a lawsuit. I was happy the situation was resolved.

The moral of the story is: consider the source! When you have a nuisance animal problem, you have to look at the entire problem. In order to stop the infestation completely you must trace it back to the source. Sometimes the source of the problem isn\'t immediately obvious or isn\'t on your personal property. When it is time to get rid of gophers, do it right. Get rid of them all, and get back a happy neighborhood.

We solve many types of wildlife control conflicts in West Valley City and surrounding areas. Give us a call if you need expert animal removal and/or live wildlife trapping. We can also perform an inspection of your property to evaluate the problem.

Many of the projects we solve involve raccoon families in attics and chimneys, mud swallow nests on stucco, woodpeckers drilling siding, voles and gophers destroying lawns, rats or squirrels thumping and bumping around inside walls and in attics, bat infestations, skunks stealing pet food and snakes living in crawlspaces and stone walls.

Along with physical damage and disease, wild animals also bring along disturbance and nuisance with all their noise and commotion and smell. Baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds; raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; skunk smell takes the cake, but have you ever smelled a dead animal in your ventilation system? We have seen much, much more than these problems, but that is a general idea of the kinds of problems that my professional wildlife removal operators and I are prepared to solve.

Not only do my technicians and I trap and remove problem wild animals, we do a lot of other dirty work, too. Don't hesitate to call us for dead animal removal, pigeon waste cleanup, bat guano removal, mouse droppings, decontamination, repairs, above ground and below ground rodent slick fencing, odor control for skunk spray, and the like. We are a full service pest control company with a wide range of animal control solutions.

I have been in the professional wildlife control business for many years. My favorite stories and experiences are removing bats from schools and churches.

No Bird Nest Removal in West Valley City, Utah Hard to \"Swallow\"

I am a local attorney and recently advised my client in her efforts to get rid of mud swallows nesting on the entrance archway of her home. The swallows made a mud nest and then hatched four babies.

She said the swallows are becoming a huge nuisance. Her window below the archway and front steps are covered in swallow excrement. The babies are now old enough to fly on their own, but they are not leaving. She wanted to know what she could legally do to remove the swallows as she heard they were federally protected.

She was right. Swallows, as well as many other birds, are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. This act makes it illegal to \"pursue, hunt, take, capture, kill, attempt to take, capture or kill, possess, etc. . . any migratory bird . . . for the protection of migratory birds . . . or any part, nest, or egg of any such bird (16 United States Code 703).

If a person violates the act they could face fines up to $15,000 and possible prison sentences for every swallow, egg or nest that is destroyed. When the birds are able to fly, the nest can be removed.

I advised her that she could get rid of the swallows\' nest, but that she and her husband would have to wait until the swallows decide to leave the nest on their own. Once the birds are out of the nest, I advised her to call a professional swallow removal technician that I have been in contact with for the last few years at They can come out and professionally remove the nest and apply swallow repellents or permanent swallow prevention brackets to the area to discourage them from making their nests again at her home next year.

Many people try to do these things themselves, but they just don\'t really know what they are doing. It is best to let the professionals handle the situation. They know what to do in order to be in accordance with the federal laws.
