Critter Trapping - We aim to be humane and 100% effective. We capture only the target animals. We don't waste time and money by catching every roving critter in the area. We catch the ones that are causing you problems. If you have squirrels in your attic, we set special traps right at and on the holes they use to get into the house. We also treat animals humanely, and we work 24-7. We never leave an animal to suffer in a cage. We come out to the house seven days a week to remove the trapped animals.We also provide dead animal removal services - if you've got a terrible smell inside your house, and you suspect that an animal has died - it could be a rat down in a wall, a squirrel that fell down the chimney, a raccoon in the attic - we come and find and remove the carcass, and provide odor relief.
The Eastern Gray Squirrel loves to live inside the attics of Pennsylvania homes. Squirrels have two litters of young per year, in late summer and late winter, so people often notice the scurrying of young squirrels in the attic in September or March. Squirrels are rodents, who love to chew on the woodwork of your home, and the electrical wiring inside your attic. We are experts at trapping and removal, plus total "squirrel-proofing" of your house.
Raccoons, with their black mask and ringed tail, cause a wide variety of problems. They are very strong and nimble, and often tip over garbage cans or pry their way inside houses. They commonly break into the attics of homes. Frequently, a female raccoon with babies will enter an attic. Raccoons are cute, but they can be very destructive. We humanely trap and relocate these animals. It's important to find and remove the baby raccoons if there's a momma raccoon in the attic.
Opossums are unique animals. They are marsupials, which means that the mother gives birth to teeny tiny young that actually grow in a pouch. The opossum has a prehensile tale, opposable thumbs, and sometimes play dead. Possums frequently eat garbage and pet food, and often live under sheds or even crawl up into the attics of homes. If you need a professional solution for your possum problem, give us at A Wildlife Pro a call.
Groundhogs are diggers. They dig tunnels underground, and live in borrows. Groundhog tunnels can have five or more entrances.The tunnel distance can be up to50 feet. They also hibernate in their burrows. Groundhogs can often be seen during the day, eating from gardens and foraging in fields.
Most snakes are not venomous. However, if you are ever unsure about the species of snake that you see, you should leave it alone. Pennsylvania does host several species of venomous snakes. Most bites occur when people try to catch or handle these reptiles. We have professional snake handling equipment that makes the removal of unwanted snakes both outside and inside the home safe.
The most common nuisance birds in Southeast Pennsylvania are Pigeons,Starlings and Grackles. The most common issue in bird control is a messy roost of pigeons on or inside a commercial building. The best way to solve a pigeon problem is to install deterrents that prevent the birds from roosting - this includes bird spikes and netting, most commonly. If you have a problem with pigeons crapping all over the place, we can keep them away for good.
Everyone knows the black and white skunk and its smelly spray. Skunks commonly live under PA sheds and decks. They cause a big problem with their odor. They also commonly dig holes throughout a yard in their search for grubs. We are experts at skunk control and removal, and have been working with Pennsylvania wildlife for over 10 years. We are familiar with the habits of Pennsylvania skunks, and are experts at humane trapping and removal of this critter.
The most common colonizing bat species in Pennsylvania is the Little Brown Myotis. These bats have a habit of living inside the attics of homes, and can form very large groups of maternal colonies. Bats are good animals, and they eat a lot of insects, but when they roost inside buildings, they can leave a huge mess with their bat poop (guano), which can cause lung diseases in humans. We are experts at humane bat control, and never harm a single one of these winged wonders.
