Tulsa Wildlife Control
Wildlife Control Issues In The Tulsa Area
The collective of Tulsa wildlife issues are unique to the area - as are all Oklahoma and regional nuisance wildlife management dilemmas from place to place. Topography, climate, population, socio-economic factors and building trends - these are just a few of the things that can have an influence on what kind of wildlife an area might attract, as well as, what kind of problems that wildlife might create for the people who live there.
Within and around Tulsa in particular, the Arkansas River, combined with the many creeks and ponds in the area, provide wildlife with a plentiful supply of drinking water. And houses built within the city's urban forest environment help provide wildlife with plenty of places to call home.
The moderate Oklahoma climate also helps wildlife thrive. Consequently, Tulsa and surrounding areas like Broken Arrow, Owasso, Sapulpa and Jenks experience a plethora of wildlife problems from a wide variety of critters including foxes, bats, raccoons and squirrels to name a few.
Raccoon problems can be quite a challenge for some Tulsa home owners, even in the urban areas of the city. These adorable masked bandits can pop your attic roof vent off like a soda bottle cap, dismantle your roof, remove your chimney cap, and be under your couch before you can bat an eye.
A variety of types of squirrels, including fox, red and dray, commonly make their nests in Tulsa trees and attics, making squirrel control a frequent mission for The Skunk Whisperer® team.
Preventative measures should be taken immediately to head off thousands of dollars of potential damage. Gray squirrels are not as common in the Tulsa area but in Sand Springs, they are more plentiful. Gray squirrels are commonly more aggressive and territorial than red squirrels found in Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Bixby, Owasso, Jenks and Sapulpa attics. Gray Squirrels typically push out any red squirrels in the Sand Springs area where they are much more aggressive and territorial.
When it comes to Tulsa area bats, the big brown bat species is the most common and they tend to be the ones found most often in area attics.
Flying squirrels are nocturnal so it is rare to catch a glimpse of them in the wild, consequently, many Tulsa residents are surprised to found out that they do indeed live in the area and are a common problem in Tulsa attics.
These Tulsa squirrels are problematic when it comes to trapping and keeping them out of your home forever via exclusion methods. They can easily chew through cedar, which is why The Skunk Whisperer® won't do flying squirrel exclusions on cedar roof homes.
Foxes, Skunks, Armadillos And Other Area Wildlife
There are many other kinds of wildlife found throughout urban Tulsa and surrounding suburbs, including some that you might be surprised to find running wild within the city limits such as coyotes, bobcats and foxes.
Some neighborhoods have more of some types of wildlife than other neighborhoods. For instance, armadillos are much more common in Owasso than they are in Tulsa. However, skunk problems are more widespread and are a typical problem in almost all of Tulsa, Jenks, the outskirts of Broken Arrow and Broken Arrow's 71st and Lynn Lane area. Sapulpa, Bixby, Owasso, Sand Springs, and Jenks all experience skunk issues as they are widely spread and smelled in every part of Oklahoma. feral cats, opossums, and snakes can also cause problems for Tulsans.
