Feral Cats

The feline population has tripled over the last four decades with about 2 million feral cats roughly estimated in Wisconsin. For some, these feline wildlings aren’t much of a bother. A few people even leave food out to “take care” of the local strays. However, for many other neighbors, this can cause very real problems.

How Do I Get Rid of Feral Cats?

Feral cats in your neighborhood can definitely equal some headaches. These wild cats live in colonies of up to 16. Moreover, they mark their territory by spraying certain areas. For some unlucky homeowners, these areas can include porches, decks, patios and garages- leaving a very unpleasant, pungent odor. Feral cats are also responsible for killing 39-139 million songbirds in Wisconsin every year! These birds balance the delicate ecosystem when swarms of insects threaten local plant life. Most importantly, the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) reports that cats have been the primary animal responsible for the transmission of rabies to humans in the U.S. Our pest control professionals humanely trap these animals and take them to facilities that will properly care for them. Although usually shy of humans, these cats will claw, scratch and bite if threatened. Never try to handle them yourself.
