Frequently Asked Questions FAQs:
Are your pest and wildlife control products safe for our family and pets?
Yes, once the product(s) have been allowed to dry they are safe for you, your family, and pets. All our products are registered for use in hospitals, day care facilities, schools, and nursing homes. The technician will advise you on dry times and any additional precautions if deemed necessary.
How much do your pest and wildlife control services cost?
Services range in price depending upon pest and difficulty. Services start at $79 with the average service between $100 and $200. If you have questions about your specific situation and problem, we encourage you to call our office and the office staff can give you a ballpark range for your specific pest.
Are your wildlife control services humane?
Yes, we go out of our way to make sure that all the animals we trap are safely relocated with relation to Colorado state laws. There are a few animals that we trap that we cannot relocate, and, in those situations, we may choose to use one-way doors, so we are not forced to euthanize the animal. In rare situations when an animal appears to be sick or injured, we will euthanize the animal through an approved method by the state of Colorado. We believe strongly that there is a shared balance between humans and wildlife, and we try to educate our customers on ways to minimize human and wildlife conflicts.
What cities and areas do you service?
We work along the front range from the Wyoming border south to Denver, servicing all the major cities in-between. Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Windsor, Longmont, Boulder, Lafayette, Louisville, Broomfield, Westminster, Arvada, Thornton, Golden, Denver, and Aurora. If you live in the Northern Colorado area; the Denver Metro area; and Boulder County, we can help you.
How does NOCO Pest and Wildlife Control handle the Covid-19 pandemic?
We follow all the CDC guidelines and all our technician’s wear masks, social distance and wash their hands frequently. We even remind our customers prior to service to wear their own masks and to social distance to protect themselves along with the technicians. All our employees are asked to be mindful and if sick not to come to work and to get tested.
During my final year in college, I was looking for a job in a related field of wildlife biology and I got a job with another pest control company as a wildlife trapper. I started with raccoon, squirrel and skunk trapping and loved it. I slowly began to learn the insect side of the industry and went back to school and got my master’s degree in Entomology and now have my own business doing both pest and wildlife control.
I got a call for pigeon droppings above a store front sign and I went to inspect the property. When I got there, I noticed a lot of pigeon droppings below the store front sign that was causing a major problem because people were walking through it and brining it inside the store on their feet. I put up a 24’ ladder and got a closer look up behind the store front sign. When I got up behind the sign, I looked across to the other side and saw a nest full of great horned owlets. I immediately knew that I was in a bad spot and started down the first rung of the ladder, then lights out. It felt like I got hit in the head with a baseball bat. One of the adult owls saw me and attacked me on the ladder. They used their talons on the side of my head and one of them wrapped around and punctured my left eye, draining all the fluid from the eye. I got down the ladder without falling and had a passerby call for an ambulance. I ended up going through three eye surgeries to save the eye, but I am 98% blind in my left eye. The talon damaged the lens enough that I no longer have one and it also damaged the muscles behind the eye, leaving me with double vision.
