Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Greensburg, PA

Greensburg Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Greensburg 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 Greensburg, and I recommend the following:

Xceptional Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 412-228-4945

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Westmoreland County Animal Services: 724-925-2555

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 Westmoreland 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 Greensburg wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Greensburg 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.

  Greensburg 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 Greensburg 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 Greensburg 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 Greensburg 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 Greensburg 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 Greensburg pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Greensburg 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 Greensburg trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Greensburg 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 Greensburg. 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 Greensburg 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 Greensburg. And remember, we are a private business, not Westmoreland County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 724-925-2555. Westmoreland County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Greensburg Wildlife Tip #1:
SHOULD I EVER POISON A RODENT? One of the possible ways how to kill a rodent is also by using poisonous baits. Ignore it! It is the most inhumane, ineffective and dangerous possibility among them all.

Yes, of course, poison kills rodents, but for what price? Poison kills rodents, thats a fact, but not always. Sometimes an animal doesnt eat enough of the poison and the only effect is enormous pain and suffering that goes with it. Another thing that you should consider, before you decide to set a poison bait is the fact, that when an animal eats the poison it wont die on the spot. It will most probably crawl in some very remote area, in the wall even, where you are going to be unable to reach the carcass. Remember these words when unbearable smell will be coming from different directions and how hard the disinfection of the area is going to be. Add some additional costs when you wont be able to retract the carcass by yourself and the contractors will be hired to do the job.

Greensburg Wildlife Tip #2:
Another problem that may occur is the disposal of the rotten body. Without some additional problems you will have to face, rodents are carriers of several diseases and parasites, and you can easily get in contact with these health problems when disposing of the rotten carcass. Even though you take all safety precautions you still may get contaminated. It is indeed a very hazardous problem to resolve. The poison represents a great danger to children and other animals as well. A lot of times a pet died after eating the poisonous bait and even adults can have a lot of health issues when they unknowingly digested the poison. Poisonous baits are just a temporary solution to the problem if you didnt locate and seal off the entering points. You need to make your house a pest-free zone in order to get rid of all of the rodents.

Poison is even useless on many occasions. Rodents are known as very prudent animals, especially rats, they wont touch the poison. It cant be stated enough how inhumane poison is. Even though you really profoundly detest the rodents they dont deserve that kind of death. They are simply animals, trying to survive in this world. You need to get rid of them, thats true, but there are so many different options that dont include torture and pain. These poor animals sometimes suffer for days in an unimaginable agony before they pass away- a really, horrible way to go.

Choose differently - Before using the rodent poison think again. Think overall negative consequences that poison can have and decide for another way of how to get rid of rodents. Choose the most humane possibility so that animal wont have to suffer.

Pennsylvania Wildlife Information:

Pennsylvania State bird: Ruffed grouse

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.

You can always call Xceptional Wildlife Removal, any time of day, at 412-228-4945, for a price quote for Greensburg wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Greensburg, PA.
