If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Bangor and Ellsworth 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 Bangor and Ellsworth, and I recommend the following:
Wildlife Services of Maine
Cell Phone: 207-956-5377
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Penobscot County Animal Services: (207) 992-4200
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 Penobscot 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 Bangor and Ellsworth wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Bangor and Ellsworth 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.
Bangor and Ellsworth 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 Bangor and Ellsworth 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 Bangor and Ellsworth 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 Bangor and Ellsworth 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 Bangor and Ellsworth 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 Bangor and Ellsworth pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Bangor and Ellsworth 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 Bangor and Ellsworth trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Bangor and Ellsworth 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.

. 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 Bangor and Ellsworth. 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 Bangor and Ellsworth 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 Bangor and Ellsworth. And remember, we are a private business, not Penobscot County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (207) 992-4200.
Penobscot County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Bangor and Ellsworth Wildlife Tip #1:
What is the most important thing about a nuisance wild animal? Although the nuisance wild animal is a creature that looks like it belongs in a kid's comical TV show or movie, it is actually an animal that will eventually drive you more than a little crazy. The cute yet unique looking exterior is an elaborate ploy for you to enjoy its presence in your home at first, only to be met with a vast amount of disappointment and annoyance once you realize what the animal is really all about! The most important thing that you will need to know about the nuisance wild animal is that it will not be a problem for you until it has no home of its own, then it is going to want to take over yours as best as it can. This may seem like a novelty at first, but once you have lived side by side with this creature for a few weeks, you will soon see the problems that it will bring along with it. The noise is going to be the first thing that annoys you - the nuisance wild animals will chat to each other, growl and bark at each other in a territory war, sneeze and call to its babies/mother, and that is before you even begin to think about it keeping you up at night with the incessant scuffling in and around your home or yard. The droppings is more than likely going to be the next problem - these both bring disease, will stain any roofing/wall/attic materials it comes into contact with, smells pretty awful and also can bring parasites. The nuisance wild animal may bring bugs which will affect your household and your pets - mites, ticks and fleas are a very common problem. Mess is something that is going to drive you mad, even if the above list of things doesn't. There is the damage that the nuisance wild animal is going to cause within your home, as well as the garbage can that it will knock over and the litter it will leave strewn about your yard as it struggles to find a source of food. In conclusion, it could be said that the most important thing to remember about the nuisance wild animal is that it won't cause you any problems until it tries to move into your home or yard, and at this point, you are going to have rather serious problems indeed!
Bangor and Ellsworth Wildlife Tip #2:
Trapped Wild animal - Once you have caught an wild animal in a cage trap, it is always worth being quite cautious when you are getting close to the trap, as the wild animal is likely to be quite afraid, and will often act unpredictably. It is best to try and keep the animal as calm as possible, and many people will throw a blanket over the trap before moving it, which will often help to calm the wild animal down. You may also want to wear old clothes when moving the wild animal, as these animals will often release a smelly musk when they are frightened or nervous. If you are planning on transporting the wild animal it is best to use a truck where possible because of the potential smell from the musk, but if you are using a car you may want to consider lining the vehicle with old blankets. When it comes to releasing the wild animal that has been trapped, then it is usually best to take it at least five miles from your property, and to release it well away from other homes too. It is worth taking the trap into a woodland area before opening it so that the wild animal doesn't immediately flee on to the road.
