If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Hampton 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 Hampton, and I recommend the following:
Cell Phone: 603-292-3574
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Rockingham County Animal Services: 603-929-4444
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 Hampton wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Hampton 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.
Hampton 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 Hampton 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 Hampton 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 Hampton 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 Hampton 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 Hampton pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Hampton 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 Hampton trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Hampton 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 Hampton. 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 Hampton 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 Hampton. 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 603-929-4444.
Rockingham County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Hampton Wildlife Tip #1:Do Groundhogs Make Good Pets?
Those who are interested in keeping a groundhog as a pet are advised to be aware of the fact that these woodchucks or whistle pigs are still scary because of their bad habit to dig and chew whatever comes their way. Moreover, these active creatures cannot live a healthy life in a small cage. Studies reveal that groundhogs that are kept as pet hardly survive for 10 years. If you are planning to keep on whistle pig at home, understand that it cannot be kept in wild areas later because it would not know how to survive there. Once the animal has learned the skills to live in captivity; it cannot live its life independently. It has more danger from predators and will not even be able to search for food and shelter itself.
However, if you are quite interested in keeping a baby groundhog that you found in your garden without his mother, it is important to provide him with all favorable conditions to live a healthy life. Make sure you have a large secure yard where your pet groundhog can exercise with ease. There are few ways to keep groundhogs as a pet, but so many challenges are also associated with it; your target must be to keep your woodchuck pet and family happy at the same time. Before you bring them home below, we have mentioned few details that you must be aware of.
Groundhogs are vegetarian rodents, and they belong to marmot family. These rodents have a bad habit of chewing things, and they do so to control their always growing teeth. In order for the trim their sharp teeth, they keep on scratching, chewing and digging grounds. Groundhogs are terrible eaters; if you keep them as a pet, you need to provide them enough greenery. They can be fed with a wide range of vegetables, fruits, and edible greens. Homeowners also need to be active enough to check out their activities as when they are left open because they can destroy your carpets and furniture as well.
Groundhogs love to spend time in burrows, and that is why it may often hide in the darkest corner of your house; you will even find it difficult to know where it has found its favorite home. The terrible fact is that dogs do not like groundhogs, and so do the groundhogs; hence if you already have a dog at home, it will be the biggest challenge for you to keep groundhog as well. They will often indulge in scary fights and may end up creating serious injuries to each other. However, if you own a gentle dog and plan to bring a young groundhog to home, there are chances to teach them to show friendly gestures to each other.
Groundhogs love to hibernate on a cool spot, so they may choose the basement or garage as their favorite location. They usually sleep from the month of November up to the March and then wake up with lots of hunger. Being an adult, they will also look for a mate after hibernation.
