Moles, those destructive little critters.

• A 5 ounce mole will consume 45-50 lbs of worms and insects each

• Moles can dig surface tunnels at approximately 18 feet/hour.

• Moles travel through existing tunnels at about 80 feet/minute.

• Moles contain twice as much blood and twice as much hemoglobin
as other mammals of similar size. This allows moles to breathe more
easily in underground environments with low oxygen.
What to do about them?

Physically remove them (trap).

For $109 service call plus $45 per mole,  Complete Wildlife Control will
remove moles from your property.  Satisfaction guaranteed, if we don't
catch one, you don't pay.  Unlike poisons, you see results with us.

What about grub control?

Grubs only make a percentage of mole's diet.  They also eat earthworms
and other invertebrates.  Applying grub control may increase mole activity
by making moles work harder for the same amount of food.

Castor oil, electronics, poison peanuts?
No, No, No.  Moles eat bugs not peanuts.

The Little Brown and Big Brown bats roost usually in homes and
structures where they can enter through areas as small as a quarter of
an inch. These small little animals live in colonies, sometimes small,
five to ten bats, and sometimes large, ranging from several hundred to
several thousands. A bat proofing process is needed to resolve any
situation where a building, home, or structure is infested with this type
of animal. Most homeowners make the mistake of sealing entrances
and openings to prevent bats from gaining access into their structure,
but in a many cases, seal areas that the bats are using to go
out of the
structure. When this is done it will force the entire colony of bats down
through the living quarters of the house, which can be a very messy
and dangerous situation.

Bat exclusions are needed to remove bats from buildings and
structures. All of the cracks, holes, crevices, anything the size of a
quarter inch or more are sealed, and then bats are funneled through
one-way doors or tubes out of the structure. After this process is
complete (a week to ten days) the whole colony has been removed.
What to do about them and how to get rid of bats in Iowa

The exclusion process starts with an inspection and an estimate for
complete exclusion.  The price of the inspection is waived if the
customer completes the exclusion process with Complete Wildlife
Control.  The value of the exclusion process varies depending on size
of the structure, safety concerns, amount of ladder time involved,
height and distance traveled to get to the location.

It is impossible to give an accurate estimate without looking at the
structure in question.  

Bat exclusion is warranted for two years and that can be extended
with annual inspections.

Bat dropping and guano cleanup

After the bats have been excluded from the property.  A clean up may
be necessary.  Bat droppings may contain diseases and the odor
smells of dirty diapers.  Complete Wildlife Control has a 15hp vacuum
that is employed in removing bat guano.  The vac stays out side along
with the dust and waste and only a hose is inside the attic doing the
work.  After bat poop removal, a disinfectant is applied that kills
bacteria and fungus on contact.
