We get a lot of calls for snake removal and prevention from Jenks residents.
Polecat Creek, all of the bodies of water, along with tree cover and terrain, make Jenks
"snake removal central" in Oklahoma. At least half of the snake removal calls are from homeowners
who have a small fish pond or waterfall that was built next to their house and 1/4 mile away from
a larger pond or creek.
Snakes are common around Jenks
due to tree cover and the many
bodies of water in the region.
An incredible number of snake calls caused by rodents such as mice and rats in the attic or house also come
in from Jenks. We do an incredible amount of mouse-proofing and snake-proofing for residential and
commercial properties in the area.
The second most common request are for skunk removal from under rental and commercial
crawl spaces. Raccoons and bats in the attic tie as the third most popular service requests in Jenks.
We receive calls frequently because Jenks animal control traps cannot or do not capture the animals.
Jenks has started to see a drastic increase in bat removal requests in the past several
years as the bats move South from Brookside, Mid-town, and South Tulsa.
Most Jenks homeowners who complain about bats are in newly constructed homes.
Bat guano can be smelled in several parts of downtown due to long-term bat roosts
in a few older commercial buildings.
Most raccoon complaints are also from commercial properties.
