Kansas is considered the flattest state in the nation, though that award can be disputed depending on the method of measurement. As a general rule, when it comes to simply traveling through Kansas or viewing it from the viewpoint of a pedestrian, it is indeed 'flatter than a pancake' as the locals say. Two-thirds of the state belongs to the Great Plains, and only one-third is considered to be heavily forested and somewhat less flat. Kansas has both hot/humid regions and hot/dry regions in the state, and similarly, winters are cold and wet or cold and dry. Unfortunately, because of the flat lay of the land, this state is prone to severe weather, often in the form of violent thunderstorms and subsequent tornados.

Decades ago, bison were once plentiful in Kansas, and many of the Native American tribes in the state were nomads, following the large animals across the plains. Bison are no longer present in Kansas, at least not in their wild state. The only non-domesticated grazers on the plains are now white-tailed deer, pronghorns, elk, and mule deer.

At one time, large predators were found throughout the region. Mountain lions, black bears, grizzly bears, and gray wolves were all once native to Kansas but have since been extirpated. The largest predators in the state are now coyotes and bobcats with foxes and badgers bringing up the rear.

Kansas is home to a number of small animals. This is especially true for rodents. These animals make good use of the long grasses and ample fields of grains. Not only are their larger rodents like prairie dogs, gophers and porcupines, there are many smaller rodents such as cotton rats, deer mice, woodrats, prairie voles, and grasshopper mice. While these smaller animals fare better during violent weather on the plains, larger creatures must seek shelter in natural bowls or by grouping together for herd protection.

Rodents are not the only pest animals to make their way onto people's properties, however. Kansas has a fair share of raccoons, skunks, foxes, ferrets, rabbits, hares, wild boar, armadillos, and bats. The opossum is also a common pest animal. This marsupial can be very problematic if it decides to live in an attic space.
  Wichita Raccoons: This masked animal is fairly common in Wichita, KS. They frequently raid trash cans and steal pet food. They also often choose to live in the attic or chimney of your home. One of Kansas's beautiful animals, but often a nuisance. We offer Wichita raccoon removal.
  Wichita Squirrels: Squirrels are often a pest in Wichita. They love to live in an attic, and will chew on wood or electrical wires. They are agile creatures, and live throughout the state of Kansas. Call Wildlife Command Center if you need squirrel removal in Wichita.
  Wichita Opossum: You may spot this animal in Wichita at night time, perhaps rooting through your garbage. This opportunistic animal will take your pet's food or live under your porch. The possum is a great Kansas survivor, and not all that ugly.

  Wichita Rat Control: The Norway Rat, Roof Rat, and House Mouse inhabit most areas of North America that people inhabit, including most Kansas cities. They contaminate food and love to live in the walls or attic of a home. Wildlife Command Center can get rid of them once and for all.
  Wichita Bats: Bats are special animals, and found throughout Kansas. They are good creatures and eat a lot of insects, but if you have an infestation of bats in your home or building, you can give us a call for professional Wichita bat removal and control.

Today, as more and more people build their homes in rural areas or what was once rural areas, they find their dream homes being damaged by wildlife intent on sharing their homes with them. Animals cause millions of dollars in damages yearly in direct destruction to roofing, siding, guttering, and insulation. As well as millions more in indirect damages from water leakage and fires caused by compromised wires and clogged flues. Repairing the damage often isn't enough. The problem animals will only return if not caught and removed. This is where we can help you, the home or business owner. 

Wichita Wildlife Tip
How To Prevent Rodents Entering Your Home - In order to prevent rodents entering your home it is essential to carry out regular maintenance and inspections. Rodents are masters at squeezing through the smallest of holes and their inquisitive, adventurous nature makes any tiny space attractive. Carrying out careful inspections of your home every few months or so is an essential part of keeping rodents out of your home and, in the long term, may well save you many thousands of dollars. Even if you have work done by a professional tradesperson be sure to check that they have correctly finished their work and have not left any gaps or holes - call them back if you are not satisfied.

When seeking to prevent rodents entering your home it is important not to waste your hard earned dollars on 'guaranteed, fail-safe' products which use smells, noises or lights to deter rodents - simply put, these products do not work nor is there any evidence to suggest they do. Setting traps around the perimeter of your home is the only way to exclude rodents from your home. Placing traps at any points of vulnerability, carrying out regular inspections and keeping your home well maintained will prevent rodents from gaining access to your home.

Wildlife - Getting antsy for hand capturing season to start

October served us very well since the weatherfellow told us that it was one of the driest Octobers on record. One thing nice for anglers was that we had a lot of nice warm days to wet a line and enjoy fall fishing. Hooray for wild creatures and critters!

For me, it was my birthday on Halloween and would you believe that I celebrated the first 21 years on Nov. 1. What happened was, when I turned 21, I was drafted into the army for World War II, which so many of us went to fight for our country. Remember to treat the wild animals of Wichita, Kansas, with respect and care.

Anyway, I had to get a birth certificate to take with me for induction, so we went to the courthouse in Wauseon, Kansas to get one. I knew everyone in the courthouse as I was working for the local newspaper and gathered courthouse news. Snakes and coyotes are not all mean.

I told the clerk I needed a birth certificate. She said, "what day were you born?" and I said, "November 1, 1920." She went back into the file room and came back out and said she couldn't find it. Joking, she said, "are you sure you were born on that day?" For more on Wichita wildlife, read on.

Behind is a valley of pines and broken cliffs and fog as lovely as an Ansel Adams photo. Footing is very unstable, but The wildlife management expert, a longtime wildlife trapper and former San Marino police chief, knows this shaky terrain. He moves up the ridge in seamless methodical motion, relying on momentum to keep him from falling backward onto boulders and yucca. From the top, near Mt. Baldy, the 45-year-old wildlife trapper can see vast distances and scout for mink and badger he hopes to animal control the next day. It's a needle-in-a-haystack proposition because The wildlife management expert is in the middle of the worst mink and badger-animal exterminating country in Kansas.
