If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Chester 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 Chester, and I recommend the following:
Xceptional Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 215-995-5146
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Delaware County Animal Services: 610-566-1370
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 215-995-5146
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 Delaware 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 Chester wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Chester 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.
Chester 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 Chester 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 Chester 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 Chester 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 Chester 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 Chester pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Chester 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 Chester trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Chester 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 Chester. 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 Chester 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 Chester. And remember, we are a private business, not Delaware County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 610-566-1370.
Delaware County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Chester Wildlife Tip #1:How to Get Rid of Foxes
Foxes, to be blunt, can be a pain-especially if you have livestock such as chickens or other small animals (like dogs). Plus with the diseases that they can carry a wild fox, as cute as they may look, are not friends. If a fox has decided to make a house out of your home, it's probably for the best that you get rid of it in a safe, humane, and controlled manner.
Make your home unattractive
The best way to get rid of foxes is to make sure that your home is unattractive as possible to them. This is done by doing things which they don't like such as adding a water sprinkler to the garden, and ensuring that there is minimal food available for them to eat (this includes making sure that rubbish bins are secured).
Adding things like electric fences should help to keep foxes out, especially if there is livestock present. Other repellents that work include making loud noises, but you must consider the neighbours if you live in a residential area, especially as foxes are more than likely to come out at night.
A cheap (ish) method is to ensure that your perimeter is fenced off. This may want to be accompanied with an 18 inch apron which goes into the ground which helps prevent animals such as foxes and coyotes from burying underneath your fence. This won't just stop animals but if done correctly can be a nice feature to the house.
If you just want them out, you may want to consider calling a professional to remove them. This won't be cheap, and may not guarantee your home being fox free, but it will give you enough time to put up prevention methods to stop any other animals getting in.
Chester Wildlife Tip #2:
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.
