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 2017.
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

How to Keep Foxes Away From
Foxes are very dangerous animals since they can
attack your pets and also kill poultry. There
are very many ways that you can use to keep
foxes out of your property. What are some of
Use of water jets
Water jets sprinkle a rain of water on anything
within their proximity. They should be installed
strategically to ensure that they water any
animal that comes near your property. You should
note that water jets can destroy some of your
properties like wooden structures and
electronics and so should be kept away from
these things. This limits the effectiveness of
water jets to gardens and farms or open fields.
Use of sound repellants
Sound repellants are an easy way to prevent
foxes from venturing into your garden. Just
ensure that the sound is not too loud to disturb
your family or your neighbors. In addition, you
cannot keep the sound running all day as you
risk irritating other people and this means that
you must invest in a machine that is activated
by motion. This means that the loud sound will
only be produced when a fox passes by.
Use of spikes
This is the oldest for defense against animals.
Just buy animal spikes from your local hardware
store and then install them. The spikes should
be sharp so that they can pierce the foxes and
dissuade them from trying to venture further
into your garden. You can buy positional spikes
to be placed on entry points only, or you can
buy a spiked fence. The spiked fence is
obviously more costly but offers more protection
Use of snap-traps
These are traps that snap at the slightest
touch. They can be a good weapon against foxes
since they injure any fox that touches them.
They are placed on the ground and concealed from
sight. The traps should be appropriately used to
avoid harming of pets and other people. You
should also remember that some of these traps
can kill an animal and this makes them dangerous
since they can injure you if you mishandle them.
Use of ultrasonic equipment
This equipment produces a special kind of noise
that can only be heard by the target animals.
Humans cannot hear the sound produced, but it is
very irritating to foxes and other animals.
These devices are motion activated and have a
battery of their own that can last for half a
year. The devices are safe and easy to install.
However, they may be costly and can be destroyed
by hash weather conditions like heavy rains.
