“I have used Catch-It two different times over 12 years to deal with squirrels that have chewed their way into my attic. They are extremely efficient and with their method, you can be certain that they got every critter before they patch up the point or points of entry. Getting rid of squirrels can seem expensive, but the amount of damage squirrels can do to your home can be extensive . . . . it is easily worth it.”
“We had a squirrel in our attic. It turned out to be a large male. From the sound of the scratching, it sounded like something much bigger. We didn’t know what to expect, but called Catch-it and they set a trap. It was only the one squirrel and he was captured quickly. The guys at Catch-it followed up and repaired an entry in our new roof. Great job, I’d say 5 stars.”
“We had a great experience with Wade and Catch-It Wildlife! The squirrels in our attic were removed quickly and Wade was prompt whenever we called to reach him. They covered the entry point after all squirrels were removed too! So happy with the service!”
“Tried to catch the squirrels in the attic ourselves with no results. Steve and his crew had them all caught and the attic hole patched/secured in a little over a week. Couldn't be more pleased. Very knowledgeable and very thorough. Highly recommend.”
“I used Catch-it Wildlife several times to catch both raccoons and squirrels that were getting into my attic. Catch-it would set up traps and did a great job of understanding where to best set them to catch the critters. The traps were never on my roof for a long period of time. I would recommend them and I would use again.”
“Excellent service! Our chimney cap had blown off in a storm and we needed it put back on asap as we’ve had trouble with squirrels falling down our chimney. Catch It Wildlife was out to re place our chimney cap within a couple of days! Done quickly and professionally. Will use this company again if needed. A+++++++++!”
“Responsive, professional, personable. Second time I’ve hired them, first for squirrels in my fireplace/chimney, second for a raccoon yanking insulation from a small opening between the shingles and guttering. Pleased with the service.
“Squirrels were creating holes in my roof. All I had to do was hire these guys. Wade set the traps and monitored results on a daily basis. In about 2 weeks the problem was resolved. I would highly recommend them."
“We've employed Catch-It's services a number of times now. They took care of our squirrel problem, very reliably checking traps every couple days even though it was Christmastime. Their entomologist was also able to help us solve the mystery of where a persistent fly infestation was coming from. Every staff interaction we've had has been pleasant, professional, and prompt. I plan to continue using their services in the future."
“I received timely and great service. I have used this company twice my technician was Stephen on the last visit. Squirrels are an ongoing problem, and I have a black walnut tree. My tech checked the traps daily( based on his travel route). He closed entry points Very neatly! Squirrels are territorial and very intelligent, they will keep finding a way into an attic. I will call this company again. This service is so necessary for a safe and pleasant home."
“Did a great job with our squirrel problem. In just 2 days they were all gone! I would use them again."
“Catch-It was able to come out the day after I called about a hole in my chimney siding from squirrels who were recently active up there. Other companies told me it would be more than a week before I could be scheduled. Chad was on time and very professional...set up the trap and checked it periodically. Turns out the squirrels had abandoned their nest (or saw the trap!) so there was no "catching" and they ended up just repairing the hole. Very happy with their service!"
Lee's Summit - an overlooked access hole | Click to Expand
Here are some photos from another Lee's Summit house of an attic access hole that was missed by another company. The area had already been patched and flashed and "looked good". However, looks can be deceiving and, as you can see from the photo of our technician's hand, a significant gap was still present, allowing animals access to the attic. While we’re all human, and anyone can make a mistake, but this is a good example of why many of our customers prefer to use us, local professionals, rather than a national franchise.

Diseases Carried by Squirrels
Physical damage to your home is only one concern with squirrels. These rodents also pose a risk to health. Like other wildlife, squirrels carry parasites from ticks and fleas. These parasites are toxic to people and pets.
Squirrels also spread diseases through their urine and droppings:
- Lyme’s disease
In summary, squirrels are not just a nuisance, but can actually be dangerous pests if the infestation isn’t taken care of swiftly. From trapping to exclusion and repellents, there are various ways to remove family members of the Sciuridae order from your home or business.
Any pest control service must always keep safety in mind when dealing with potentially hazardous materials and wild animals. Preventing any future infestations is also key in keeping squirrels off your property; ensuring they don’t find food sources or access points by sealing all cracks and crevices with steel wool.
