Powell Wildlife Control

Wild animals may be enjoyable and even fascinating to watch from a safe distance, but they aren’t always welcome guests around your property. Some of nature’s most prolific scavengers are also some of its most destructive forces when it comes to raiding your trash, damaging your home, and even attracting pests by creating a mess that’s nearly impossible to clean up. Sometimes they also carry diseases, making contact with them or their urine or feces a potentially serious health hazard.

If our local wildlife is getting just a little too close for comfort or a little too bold with intrusions into your yard, turn to 1st Response Pest Management for specialized, targeted, and humane wildlife removal and relocation services. We focus on successfully locating and trapping trespassing creatures so they can be safely relocated to an area where they can continue to live freely in the wild while staying far away from your home and your loved ones.

Hear It From Our Happy Customers!

    Ron is AWESOME! I had a national pest extermination company for several years and nothing was getting accomplished. I have seen a significant decrease in the last several months that I started with 1st Response. Ron is very committed to getting the problem fixed and is very knowledgeable and a great guy! He knows his pests! :) Everyone at 1st Response is kind, courteous, and goes the extra yard!

    Company was very responsive to the needs that I had. My daughters room had hornets coming thru her ceiling. First response was the best response. They came right away after my internet message. Fixed the problem and offered a great service for other rodents around my house. Monthly service is a great deal. These guys know customer service and they know pest control. If you are thinking about a company that cares….this is it. Make first response your first response if you are in need of help.

    I live at The Gardens Apartments. I guess before I moved in, there was an issue with bugs. I never saw any. Thank God! But the gentleman from 1st Response saw something on the traps and came back several times to take care of the issue. He was always professional, polite and handled everything with care. Kudos!! I appreciate him and the service that you provide.

    Had a great experience with David - he was polite, personable, and able to find where the mice were coming in within 5 minutes. He put all the traps down and followed up on time to ensure they didn't return - highly recommend them!

    This company is great! The company I work for has been using them for years, and I have been using them recently for my home. David is so friendly when he comes in to my office, and Larry was great when he came to my home. Lisa is always the best too! So friendly on the phone!

    We have a mouse or two and Larry was amazing. On time, professional. He even went into my attic through a very small, inconvenient entryway in the top of a closet. He educated me about mice and inspected every inch of my place, inside and out. The office staff was great, too!

    Rene L.

    We purchased a house that has had termite damage in the past. The original structure was built in 1890, and has been added onto over the years. Previous owners had repaired the termite damage, and had contracted with 1st Response to continue to maintain termite control stations and inspect for any new activity. We have continued with that existing service since purchase. Every tech that comes out is wonderful. Office staff is great as well. Everyone we have dealt with has been personable, kind, attentive and professional. Jason and Justin have been our most recent techs, and they are both great guys.

    Patricia M.

    Best customer service ever! From the dispatcher to the technicians. They were super kind and accommodating to our health needs, more than willing to wear an N95 mask that we provided. Engaging conversation and thorough inspection. Even when 1 thing was missed, they apologized and made everything right. Their service was fast, but effective. The price is reasonable for all of the services you get and they were very understanding and accommodating when it came to the initial payment. I wish we had found them years ago, but if anything good can come from a mouse, it's having First Response on your side. 100%, 10 out of 10, highly recommend!

    Izetta T.

    Holy smokes! They are the best! Like seriously, if you need creepy crawly help or help with other things that scurry about, they are your people. They are incredibly kind, friendly, and understanding. They have a lot of patience and explain things thoroughly. Can't say enough good things about them. We have been using them for a couple years now and have had continued reliable and excellent service.

Our Wildlife Control Process

It’s not uncommon for animals such as squirrels, opossums, raccoons, skunks, and others to find their way into your attic, basement, walls, porch, garage, or other outbuildings. Because these areas are less frequently occupied and are generally less secured against wildlife than the rest of your home, they tend to make great spaces for these small animals to utilize for food or even to make their home. When this happens, you need the help of the professionals at 1st Response Pest Management. We offer wildlife removal that utilizes our tried-and-true process for humane removal.

1st Response Pest Management has pest management professionals skilled in eliminating most types of wildlife of infestations safely and humanely. Contact us to schedule your inspection.

Our Process


We start the process with a thorough and detailed investigation of your property to determine what kind of wildlife we’re dealing with, how many animals might be present, and where they might be located. We’ll inspect the interior and exterior of your house and outbuildings to determine where the infestation is, how big or widespread it has become, and how the wildlife is getting inside.

Live Trapping

Based on our inspection findings, we’ll determine the best locations in which to place live traps. These traps do not injure or incapacitate the animal in any way, ensuring their safety. We monitor these traps daily and include seven days of monitoring with this service, and we can add more if necessary.


After your intrusion has been taken care of, it’s vital to eliminate entry points to prevent any future animals from getting the same idea. We offer exclusion work to seal entry points, and we also suggest capping your chimney. Our chimney capping includes a one-year warranty.
