If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Derry home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in New Hampshire 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 Derry, and I recommend the following:
Cell Phone: 603-292-3574
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Rockingham County Animal Services: (603) 432-6143
Critter Control specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. New Hampshire also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Critter Control 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 603-292-3574
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 New Hampshire and Rockingham 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
Critter Control is a full-service Derry wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Derry pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Critter Control 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.
Derry wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in New Hampshire 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 New Hampshire law. We offer Derry raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Critter Control. 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 Derry 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 Derry 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 Derry rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. New Hampshire 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 Derry pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Derry 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 Derry trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Derry 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. Critter Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Critter Control. 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
. Critter Control
also provides dead animal removal in Derry. 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 Derry snake removal - most of the snakes in New Hampshire are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Derry. And remember, we are a private business, not Rockingham County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (603) 432-6143.
Rockingham County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Derry Wildlife Tip #1:Do More Pigeons Live In Urban Areas, Or Wild Areas?
Pigeons are one of those birds that are skilled enough for adopting and thriving in a wide range of habitats. Earlier, these creatures were limited to wild areas and used to build nests on trees. But today, it will not be wrong to say that these flying creatures are happily adopting the conditions followed in various human settlements. Today you can easily find them living in populated cities as well as in the wild areas. The true fact is that they can adjust in the premises without facing any major issue or stress. In such situations, most homeowners in the United States keep on asking that whether pigeons live in urban areas or they belong to the wild?
In order to find the most satisfactory answer to this question, it is important to get into the details of pigeon habitat. You need to understand what kind of habitat they love so that you can understand their preferences between urban and wild areas. Few recent studies reveal that pigeons these days prefer to live in the cities because the large structures and buildings in these areas appear like most suitable places to them. Like humans, they can also use buildings for their own needs. Taller buildings that have ledges of windows appear like natural cliffs for wild pigeons, and they prefer to live here so long. These spots are commonly used by pigeons as well as other birds for roosting and building nests. Also, many people love to feed pigeons in their premises, so these creatures do not even find any trouble to fill their stomach in routine. Hence, they take the decision to build nests in the nearby areas; and in most cases your attic or roof as well.
We cannot say that cities are the only places where pigeons live because these creatures can also survive easily in old caves and wild cliffs. If we talk about the pigeons living in the suburban and rural areas, they often prefer to build cozy living places in the barns as well as in the abandoned homes. These creatures can live on a variety of food items; the most common list includes animal food, garden waste, spilled grain, or anything that is available with ease. Pigeons are also observed to live in the caves, and they build nests at the opening portion of the cave. When they live in such an environment, their diet mostly includes seeds and grains. However, sometimes they may also prefer to enjoy snails, fruits, insects, slugs, etc.
In short, we can say that pigeons can live in almost all parts of the world without feeling hesitated about variable living conditions. They can be found in the forests, towns, and villages as well. In fact; sometimes, you may also find them living in the deserts where they use various succulent plants to meet their water requirements. Some pigeons are also found on the islands; hence, we can say that these creatures can easily live in the extreme conditions.
