Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Butler, PA

Butler Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Butler home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Pennsylvania 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 Butler, and I recommend the following:

Xceptional Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 412-228-4945

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Butler County Animal Services: 724-789-1150

Xceptional Wildlife Removal specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Pennsylvania also has a documented problem with bats in buildings, and Xceptional Wildlife Removal 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 412-228-4945 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 Pennsylvania and Butler 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

Xceptional Wildlife Removal is a full-service Butler wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Butler pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Xceptional Wildlife Removal 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.

  Butler wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania law. We offer Butler raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Xceptional Wildlife Removal. 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 Butler 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 Butler 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 Butler rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
  Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Pennsylvania 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 Butler pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Butler 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 Butler trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Butler 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. Xceptional Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Xceptional Wildlife Removal. 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. Xceptional Wildlife Removal also provides dead animal removal in Butler. 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 Butler snake removal - most of the snakes in Pennsylvania are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Butler. And remember, we are a private business, not Butler County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 724-789-1150. Butler County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Butler Wildlife Tip #1:
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I FIND A NEST OF RODENTS IN MY ATTIC? Rodents like to live in human homes because there is everything they need for the survival. They are looking for easy access to food, water, and a lot of material as well as places where they can build their nests. Rodents that are going to habit in a human home are most likely: Rats, mice, and Squirrels.

They found nesting places all around the house, in the basements, in the walls and they like to build nests in the attics as well. Attics are peaceful and out of site places, quite rarely visited. That is giving the rodents plenty of space and time to build themselves a nice and cozy nest. Soon after they have finished the nesting young come and with that a full rodent family starts to make a lot of noise. That is what usually gets owners attention and starts with an inspection and other activities in order to get rid of unwanted visitors.

How to get rid of the rodents nest in the attic? Squirrels - Another possibility how to get rid of rodents especially, if the rodent is a squirrel is to set a live cage trap. You need to locate the entry point, where the female is entering the building and set a live cage trap with one door possibility directly on the opening. When the animal enters the cage there wont be no return. Together with the young relocate the animal to a friendlier environment that provides food, water, and shelter. Keep in mind that relocation area should be at least 10 km away from its original home.

Butler Wildlife Tip #2:
Rats and mice - After you have found rodents nesting in your attic, you need to thoroughly inspect the entire building and find the possible entry points where rodents could be entering your premises. The next step that needs to be done is sealing shut all of the possible holes and cracks where rodents could come into your home. As rodents have extremely sharp teeth it would be advisable to use steel plates for shutting the holes. Before you do anything else you need to make your home a pest-proof area. After sealing all holes and cracks shut, you need to start thinking how you are going to get rid of pesky little creatures.

The most humane solution to your problem is snap traps. They work quickly, efficiently and cause the animal minimum pain and no suffering. There is no need what so ever to hurt these little creatures in any way. Before setting the traps you have to, of course, learn some things about your unwanted visitors. That is the only way you are going to be able to trap them. Find their path of movement and along that path set as many traps as possible. This kind of distribution of traps will enhance your possibility of trapping the rodents. When you succeed in entrapment of rodents you need to perform thorough disinfestations and a proper disposal of their carcasses, droppings and the rest of the material used for the nest.

Pennsylvania Wildlife Information:

Pennsylvania State bird: Ruffed grouse
State mammal: White-tailed deer
tate insect: 7-spotted ladybug, Pennsylvania firefly
State fish: Brook trout

You can find a variety of landscapes in Pennsylvania, though the majority of the state is covered in forest. Pennsylvania has a fair amount of flat land and a fair amount of mountainous land. No matter where you go, you are bound to run into wildlife. Warm-loving animals will not be so inclined to live in this state, though the southern region has more mild temperatures than the mountainous north. Because of the slight temperature difference, snakes and amphibians are more populous in the south. Rattlesnakes, one of the venomous snakes in the state, are only found in the lower aspect of Pennsylvania. Smaller snakes, like the garter snake, make their home just about anywhere they can find.

Reptiles aren't the only critters that like Pennsylvania. The state has hundreds of sheltered ponds and lakes, and this promotes a healthy population of beavers, otters, and muskrats. Other semi-aquatic animals include the snapping turtle and the common water snake.

Of predators, Pennsylvania has only two large mammalian carnivores. The black bear and coyote are at the top of the food chain in this state, though there have been numerous sightings of mountain lions over the last decade. The state's Department of Fish and Game adamantly dismisses the rumors, and has been able to disprove most of the sightings. Still, many residents feel there is a breeding population of the large cats somewhere in the state. Black bear, though destructive when they find a bird feeder or an open garbage can, are not seen as commonly as coyotes. There has been a large increase in the coyote population; likely due to almost no predation and ample supply of white-tailed deer and other small game. Because of the abundance of wildlife, coyotes are usually only problematic if they are in an urban area. In this setting, the canines can become bold and dangerous, threatening house pets and small children.

Still, the most popular home invaders in Pennsylvania are of a much smaller size. Raccoons and squirrels are always on the hunt for an empty attic, and rats and mice will take any opportunity to sneak into a home. Woodchucks are just as common and irritating; the stout creatures quickly moving in under unprotected decks and patios.

If homeowners are really unlucky, they will forget to secure their pet door at night and will wake up to find a porcupine has entered the house looking for cat food.
