Review

I would like to thank Joe at Paw Control, for his efficient manner in handling our "bat" problem. Not only was he professional, but he did exactly what he said word work and it appears we do not have any more bats in our house. I would recommend his company fully.

Joe Taylor, Paw Control Wildlife Solutions was absolutely wonderful to work with!! Professional, friendly, did exactly what he said he would do and explained what he was doing and why. I couldn't be happier with my decision to contact him. The price was reasonable too! I didn't know what was in our attic when I called...but Joe let us know what was going on and found a humane way to deal with the bat issue without disturbing us or being cruel to the bats. That matters to me. The bats are gone and our roof is sealed and we are very grateful to Joe. My husband and I highly recommend him to anyone with a wildlife issue. We live in Iowa City.

I was so impressed with how quickly Paw Control responded to my inquiry. They had traps set within 24 hours of my call. They were out every day to empty and reset for 3 days in a row. They are AWESOME and I truly appreciated having a catch and release program to get the raccoons and possums out of the yard. Joe was wonderful to work with throughout the process!

Incredibly thorough and extremely knowledgeable! Highly recommend!

Review

Joe showed up to take care of my mole problem the same day I called. And the mole was caught right away. He really knows his stuff. Im glad my friend recommended him to me. I will definitely recommended his services to others.

Review

Paw Control did an amazing job on our house to keep mice from getting between the cedar siding and the house and chewing on wires. Joe was great to work with - he was very professional and knowledgeable. He definitely cares about what he is doing and how he can help!

Review

I've never ever in my life requested a service like this and had the job be completed professionally, accurately, and... In this case, lightning quick. Even before he came, he gave us tons of information of how the service works and even some info for us regarding the situation.

5/5. Pray I never find a bat in my apartment again but if I do I'm calling this guy, no hesitation what so ever.

Review

We've worked with Joe for three summers for mole removal. He's honest and fair, and really good at catching moles! We have been really pleased with the communication; he answers texts promptly and comes out in a timely manner when we spot a new run. Highly recommend!

Review

Very knowledgeable, very consultive, (doesn't charge enough for his time ;), great service!!! I hope to never have to deal with this issue again, but if I did I know who I would call! Kailey recommend

Review

I was impressed with their speed. They had my problem fixed less than 24hrs after calling. I appreciated their communication with me and prompt response. I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the prices are. I love that they use a relocation service for the animals being removed. I'll definitely be a repeat customer and I encourage you to do the same.

Review

Joe was quick to respond to our issue concerning bat removal from our home. The removal and inspection were extremely thorough and he took the time to explain in person and provided a detailed write-up for follow up. I would HIGHLY recommend Paw Control for wildlife removal. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Review

We thought we had a raccoon in our attic. Joe thoroughly inspected our house and gave us info on what evidence led him to believe it wasn't raccoons. We were glad to hear he does catch and release so animals aren't harmed after he traps them. It turned out birds entered our attic through a loose soffit, so Joe was right about it not being a raccoon!

Review

Joe is very knowledge, thorough and respectful in his service. Quick response time and very helpful. I highly recommend Paw Control for all your nuisance wildlife concerns! Mine involved chipmunks!

Review

We have used Paw Control a few times for pesky disturbances around our home. Aside from their outstanding professionalism, their pricing is extremely competitive. They are the best at what they do and we will continue to be loyal to their services.

Review

We had birds getting into our exhaust vents outside and making a nest. We called Paw Control and Joe was very responsive and answered all our questions. He was out quickly and did a fantastic job cleaning out all the vents and installing metal guards on each one. It was worth every penny to know we don't have to worry about birds getting in any longer! Thank you Joe!

Review

Paw Control is a very necessary service. Joe sealed up access points around the outside of my house and set mouse traps in my basement. I thought that I had one mouse, but we caught five! No new mice have been caught since Joe finished his repairs. I recommend Joe to anyone with unwanted critters. He was easy to contact, called before stopping by, and answered in clear language. The price was reasonable and well worth it. I will call him again without hesitation if anything new develops. I am quite satisfied.

Review

Joe is the best. He was thorough (via phone call) assessing our situation and walking me thru the two scenarios to remove a raccoon from our garage. He was straightforward with his fees. Showed up exactly when he said he would to set a live trap and then again to relocate our intruder to his rural home. Do not hesitate to use his services.

Review

A neighborhood squirrel acquired a taste for parts of our screen porch and was destroying the screens getting to (apparently) the best tasting pieces around the windows. I called Joe at Paw Control late on Thursday and he set the trap Friday morning - success! Excellent service, highly recommended. Thanks Joe!

Review

Three moles in I believe less than 72 hours, and caught the first one within 24 hours. I have been chasing moles for 10 years and have never had that success. Bravo! I hope they are still gone this spring!

Review

We had a raccoon in a window well that couldn't get back out on his own. We received same day service and I watched the process as Paw Control took care of this problem for us. They were very gentle with the animal, just guiding him into a secure carrying case so they could then take him many miles away from our home and release him into the wild. They made the best of a bad situation for us and were very professional and courteous in the process.

Review

We had a very large raccoon in our screened in porch. It was the worst weather day of the year and they came and took care of the problem while communicating the whole time. It took less than two hours for the my first call to get a response, have them at my house and have the raccoon removed.

Review

Exceptional response time, quick resolve of our issue. I was in a bit of a panic as we live on the edge of woods, and usually enjoy the abundance of birds that dwell in the trees, but for some reason a woodpecker had selected our home, specifically a south facing window, and was determined to drill a hole and set up shop. I spent three days trying to scare it, shoo it, scare crow it with stuffed animals. It wouldn't quit. I googled and found Paw Control Wildlife Solutions, Joe was quick to call me back and came out the next day with a remedy, and bye bye woodpecker. Wow. Wish all of my home improvement/maintenance headaches were this easy to fix. Thank you Joe, from a sleeping easier homeowner.

Review

There was a bird stuck in my bathroom vent. They were able to come out that same day. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, I reccomend Paw Control

Review

Joe is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He explained things thoroughly and discussed the options to remedy the problem. Was a great experience working with PAW control. Highly recommend!

Review

We asked Joe to do an evaluation for a mouse problem at our home. We have a large home and it is out more or less in the country with tons of critters large and small. He gave us an estimate, guaranteed his work, and set about the task of totally sealing the outside of the house. No small task. His work and his attitude have been terrific. I highly recommend Joe and Paw Control. His business is really unique and when people have problems, he's critical to people's safety and well being. Great job!! Thanks!

Review

Great work! Effective & efficient!

Review

Joe and Bob were very quick in responding to our call. They were very knowledgeable about trapping the mole who was circling ours house. They knew where to place the traps and caught the mole in a couple of days. Would highly recommend them to anyone who wants the job done right. Thanks Joe and Bob.

Review

I called Joe around 6pm he came that night, set up traps. Next morning the ground hog was in the trap. Joe knows what he’s doing. He’s very professional. Thanks Joe. Mike Goodale

Review

It's not every day you see a raccoon scurrying down the hallway in your office building. When that happened to us, we called Joe at Paw Control. From the beginning Joe was professional, courteous and prompt. He explained what he was going to do and took great care to prevent the little guy from making a mess during the removal. Joe is very knowledgeable about what he does and knowing the raccoon would be checked over and then released in a location better fit for him, proved we made the right decision. Great person, great company. Everything is GREAT about Paw Control. We will use them again if we have another 'adventure' with a wild animal. Thank you, Joe!

Review

I appreciated working with Joe, who took a very detailed accounting of all the different ways that small animals could enter our home. He came up with custom solutions for the specific vulnerabilities in our attic and sealed our house from intrusion of mice, bats and other wildlife. He exceeded my expectations!

Review

I have used other companies that simply just put in traps without understanding why we were having issues. Joe did a survey and found the areas they were getting in and had a plan to attack the issue. I am after a year extremely happy to say that for the first time there are no mice in our house and they have not come back because they can't. It doesn't matter if you can get it done for less money elsewhere if they don't fix the entry points and joe does that and guarantees it. Joe is a quality person with a quality business.

Review

If I could give more stars I would! Joe was extremely responsive and thorough from start to finish. I couldn't of asked for a better experience during a stressful situation. I will definitely be recommending Paw Control to anyone who needs help with a critter.

Review

I'm very pleased with my experience with Paw Control. Joe was responsive, knowledgeable, good communicator. Prices were very reasonable. I'd definitely use again.

Review

Very nice. Gave me some pointers on how to fix my problem and if that didn't work he gave me a quote. He is humane and knows what he's doing.

Review

I highly recommend Paw Control for your pest or wildlife needs. I called a couple different places before I called Joe for some bat issues in our attic. The first quote was going to be $900-$1000 without even looking at the problem, the second was going to charge us $125 just to come out and look. Joe came to our home, did a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the home, took pictures and came up with a game plan for combatting our wildlife problem humanely and effectively. His price was also substantially cheaper than the other quote I had gotten. He is detail oriented and knows what he's doing as well as provides a warranty for his work. I'm happy I called him!

Review

We had a bird stuck in our vent for weeks. Major headache. The company we're renting our apartment from was being slow and unhelpful in addressing the issue, but thankfully connected us with Joe at Paw Control. Joe made our case his priority, drove 30 minutes out of his way and got the bird out of the vent (alive, I might add) in minutes. He even followed up with the management company and had them fix the vents from outside so this won't happen again. Would definitely recommend.

Review

Joe came out the same day I called him! Although he couldn't find the critter we were having issues with he did see where the critter was getting into the a/c units from. He patched that area up and we haven't had a problem since. Great service at a reasonable price + a locally owned business. You can't go wrong!

Review

Last weekend I discovered a squirrel in my attic. I contacted Joe at Paw Control and he came out Monday and set up traps and video monitoring in my attic. With the video monitoring he was able to see when the squirrel was moving around. By early afternoon on Tuesday I received a text that the first squirrel was caught and that there was a second squirrel in the attic. By Tuesday evening the second squirrel was caught. I definitely recommend Paw Control to anyone who is dealing with wildlife that wants to move into their house.

Review

Joe at Paw Control made our home pest free! Highly recommended!

Joe did a consultation for our new home purchase. We had a major mouse infestation. We were killing them, but more would just take their place. Joe Taylor at Paw Control LLC knew how to stop them before they got in and made sure that our house was buttoned up tight. We've been mouse free ever since!

Review

Response time was great very good service

Review

Very professional and knowledgeable! Took his time to explain everything to us.

Review

Joe tackled both moles and mice for us this year. His approach was thorough and effective. In the process, Joe gave my husband and I a good education in identifying and eliminating future critter problems. Susan, Cedar Rapids

Review

Mr. Taylor was very knowledgeable on the behaviors and habitats of the critters that I needed removed from my property. He was successful in live trapping the critter (groundhog) on the first night. He educated me on how to keep them from returning by installing a critter proofing system around my screened in porch. Mr. Taylor was very professional, knowledgeable, and very reasonable on his rates. I enjoyed working with Mr. Taylor and will use him again if the need arises.

Review

Paw Patrol is one of the only places in the area that can help with moles. How lucky that Joe also does an excellent job and the service is affordable! He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive. Top notch!

Review

What can I say except that Joe was great to work with? We ended up having four (yes 4) raccoons living in our walls. Joe took the time to explain everything to me very clearly, was very responsive, and always make sure to do right by me. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone having pest problems.

Review

Joe Taylor, owner of Paw Control, was the only person out of all the numbers I called & referrals I was sent to that was not only willing to help me get my albino ball python snake out of the wall underneath my built in dresser, but he was also willing and excited to tackle the challenge with several methods or ideas to get my "son" out of there. For it to be Joe's first time, I believe, handling a snake he did a phenomenal job with much patience getting snake out without a scratch on him or being the first person my snake would've bitten, which my snake is harmless & has yet to bite anyone.
I really appreciate Joe & if you need any animal control assistance or help with a pet, Joe Taylor & Paw Control are the way to go all around PERIOD!!

Review

Joe just came out to our property to take care of a possible sick little critter. Very nice and caring guy. Plus, he was super fast in getting here. Will call again in the future if need be. Thanks, Joe!!!

Review

Review

Joe does great work. He responded very quickly whenever I contacted him, same day every time. Got rid of three groundhogs and a raccoon. He also did a good job at filling in a den in our crawl space even though the skunk found its way back in unfortunately. He always kept us up to date on the progress when he came out to check the traps.

Review

I would like to extend a big THANK YOU for taking care of our problem raccoon. We had patients in our waiting room watching how you handled it, and we couldn't have been more pleased with your calm, professional manor. The best part was that after you set up the capture plan, you coaxed that raccoon right into your live trap! It was as if you knew exactly what the coon was thinking and how it would behave. You obviously have experience with this kind of thing!

Review

Joe Taylor, owner of Paw Control, came to my house and rescued a wild rabbit who had become caught in the small holes of my wire fence and was unable to free itself. Joe was patient and caring when working to free the rabbit. Thanks to Joe, the rabbit was freed from its entanglement.

Review

Great service, thank you for a thorough inspection. Joe was very hands on and walked through all the details and educated me on everything that I didn't understand! I now have a game plan to keep the critters out!
