If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Augusta home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Maine wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular
pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Augusta, and I recommend the following:
Wildlife Services of Maine
Cell Phone: 207-956-5377
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Kennebec County Animal Services: 207-626-3491
Wildlife Services of Maine specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Maine also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Wildlife Services of Maine is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 207-956-5377
to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
- Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
- Fully Maine and Kennebec County licensed and insured
- Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Wildlife Services of Maine is a full-service Augusta wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Augusta pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Services of Maine performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Augusta wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Maine to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement
is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know.
Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Maine law. We offer Augusta raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Services of Maine. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live
and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Augusta squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed.
Never, ever use poison! Most Augusta exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Augusta rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Maine is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and
cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Augusta pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Augusta bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Augusta trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Augusta wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points
into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Wildlife Services of Maine does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Services of Maine. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc.
Read about how to get rid of opossums
. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks
. Wildlife Services of Maine
also provides dead animal removal in Augusta. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Augusta snake removal - most of the snakes in Maine are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Augusta. And remember, we are a private business, not Kennebec County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 207-626-3491.
Kennebec County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Augusta Wildlife Tip #1:
What is the price for nuisance wildlife removal? - Having a wild animal in your home or on your property is going to be a stressful situation, especially if you have other pets or kids to think about, and the last thing that you are going to want to have to concern yourself with is the cost of having the creature removed professionally, especially if you are already on a budget. That's the thing about wildlife control experts - different companies and even different individuals will often charge completely different prices, and it can be hard to know where to begin, or what the best approach for hiring one is to take. One thing that it is very important to remember is that a higher price won't always mean a better service. At the same time, the cheapest quote may seem like a good idea, but are you really going to get everything that you expect from the people or person that you are using? Rather than focusing all of your attentions on the prices that these people have to offer, you should rather look at the services that they promise to you, as well as testimonials from other clients, happy or otherwise, that would suggest whether or not they do their job well. There are a few things that you will want to look out for when hiring a wildlife control expert to remove the nuisance wildlife or other wild animal from your home. For example, as well as safely removing the creature from your land in a humane manner, you will want to make sure that the creature is being relocated in the best place possible. You are also going to want make sure that the expert educates you on how to avoid further problems with nuisance wildlife and other wild animals, and this could mean the professional(s) blocking up holes that could be used as entrances by the animals. You should also ask whether or not they remove feces and urine, especially if you are not keen on doing this particular task yourself!
Augusta Wildlife Tip #2:
What type of food goes in opossum traps? - Let's be honest - there is nothing at all desirable about having a wild animal such as an opossum living in your home or on your land, and although calling the local wildlife guys is the better choice of all that you have, it is not always something that will be readily available to you, either because of price or for other reasons, so it makes sense to learn about the things that are going to make your life a little easier. Just one of the things that will prove to make your trapping quest a more successful one is to pick the right bait. Now, opossums are scavengers so they are not normally picky when it comes to food, so essentially, you could probably put pretty much anything half edible down and they will have a good old munch. As with most animals of course, there will be certain foods that they will lust after, and these are always the perfect ones to start with. If you have a cat or dog living in your home then you are in luck! All you need to do is to use their pet food in the traps that you are setting, and you should successfully catch an opossum! These animals seem to love pet food, especially the wet, canned varieties, so if you have this to hand, throw it in the traps. If you don't have a pet cat or dog, or the pet food thing hasn't appeared to have worked as yet, try the things that you would normally throw in your garbage can. They love to root around in the stuff that you throw away, so before you look at throwing away those leftovers from your Sunday roast, why not consider putting them in the traps and letting them come running!
