name is David, and I am a nuisance
wildlife removal expert. This website is
a resource to help educate people about
wild animals, and some of the problems
that wildlife can cause. This website
contains many guides to help you solve
your critter problem. I have also
written several information articles
about the most common nuisance wildlife
species, just click your animal.
Wildlife removal is not easy. It is also
fraught with health and safety risks.
Most wildlife control situations are
significantly more complex than they may
seem. It is also illegal in most US
states for non-licensed persons to trap
or relocate wild animals. In, not all,
but many cases, critter removal is not a
|HUMANE HINTS: Sometimes you
don't need to remove wildlife at all!
When possible, use exclusion, rather
than trapping, techniques. Always be
aware that an animal in your attic
likely has a nest of babies inside.
NEVER attempt to poison a mammal. Set
traps in shade, and never leave an
animal in a trap for more than a few
hours. If you are uneducated, please
enlist the help of a professional.
If you wish to hire professional help, I have
complied a directory of expert wildlife removal
specialists, covering over 500 different US
cities and towns. I have spent significant time
talking to these companies, and have even
directly trained many of them, and believe that
the companies in this directory are superior to
most of the companies you may find in your own
search. Just click your state on the below map,
and you will find a good wildlife expert in your
area. Updated weekly, current 2018.
If you have any additional questions about your
wildlife problem, feel free to email me, or go
ahead and click the above map, and talk to the
person I have listed in your city or town. They
will surely be able to answer your wildlife
questions, and if you wish, they can give you a
price quote and quickly solve your problem -
usually same-day or next-day.
I have personally trained many of the operators
on this list. However, since I do list companies
in over 500 US cities and towns, I of course did
not train them all. However, I have spoken with
all of them, and I do know that they are all
dedicated wildlife control specialists, not
big-name pest control companies. I have listed
them for many years, and have not heard any
complaints about their services - but I
certainly have heard many compliments! However,
if you should ever have a bad experience with
any of the wildlife operators that I recommend,
let me know, so that I can talk to them and
perhaps revise my listings to someone better.
Just give them a call, talk to them, and see for

Then you may be covered.
Did you ignore the noise thinking it might just go away until you realized that the electric in living room was out? Then NO you are probably not covered because you allowed it to continue over an extended period of time.
