Wildlife Animal Control

My 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 do-it-yourself job.

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 2019.

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 yourself.

This month's featured wildlife removal education article: What Should I Do If I find An Orphaned Baby Raccoon?

A raccoon wandering alone isn’t really a sign of it being orphaned or abandoned by the mother so you have to investigate properly before putting your hands on it. Raccoons are nocturnal that is they usually seek for food at night and sleep during the day so you might find out the mother raccoon sleeping around upon carefully investigating the place. However, if there is no sign of the mother and the raccoon you have just come across is debilitated, weak, has a lot of fleas, and looks dehydrated then it must have lost the mother.

Utilize a delicate fabric to lift the infant up. Wear gloves for eyes-open adolescent – it will be found and may put a somewhat of a battle and snarl out of apprehension. Baby raccoon has little stubs of child teeth by around 4 weeks of age so continuously take insurances to abstain from being chomped while you are taking care of any creature. Don't be frightened by the complain an infant raccoon makes when initially got, it will soon quiet down when it understands you are not going to cause any harm. Wrap the infant up in the material, cozily, head and all, and let it get warm by grasping it. You need it totally warmed up, to your own particular body temperature. Place the orphaned raccoon in a box provided with several layers of bedding and put the box in a dark and quite corner.

After calming down the baby, next step is to check it for any possible injuries. An external physical examination must be carried out thoroughly and gently. Rub the baby with a warm wet piece of cloth but first don’t forget to wear rubber gloves every time you handle the baby because you have to ensure your safety too. Removal of the dust and parasites like fleas or larvae is very essential and for this purpose you can utilize some old toothbrushes to remove these types of parasites. Look for blood stains as it will point the injury out in case the baby is injured and also check the movements of baby raccoon carefully to make sure there is not any broken leg or spinal injury. Avoid the harsh handling as it will otherwise make the baby uncomfortable thus you have to be as gentle as a mother towards her baby. Consult an animal physician in case any injury is found.

You can feed it the milk in case the baby raccoon is very small however, an eight or nine weeks old raccoon can take a bit solid food like mashed bananas, baby cereals mixed with milk etc. Taking care of an orphaned baby raccoon is not an easy task so you can also hand it over to wildlife rehabilitators.
