Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Kittery, ME

Kittery Wildlife Animal Control

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

Animal Damage Control
Cell Phone: 603-869-7805

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call York County Animal Services: (603) 436-8279



Animal Damage Control specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Maine also has a documented problem with bats in buildings, and Animal Damage 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 603-869-7805 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 Maine and York 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


Animal Damage Control is a full-service Kittery wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Kittery pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Animal Damage 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.

  Kittery wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Maine 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 Maine law. We offer Kittery raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Animal Damage 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 Kittery 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 Kittery 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 Kittery rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
  Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Maine 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 Kittery pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Kittery 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 Kittery trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Kittery 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. Animal Damage Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Animal Damage 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. Animal Damage Control also provides dead animal removal in Kittery. 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 Kittery snake removal - most of the snakes in Maine are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Kittery. And remember, we are a private business, not York County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (603) 436-8279. York County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Kittery Wildlife Tip #1:
What is the best way to remove squirrels from attic - the pros and cons of doing it yourself - It would make sense to try and remove the wild animal you have living in your home or yard in the easiest and cheapest way possible - no one would argue against you about this. However, although there are ways that you will be able to catch this critter alone, it is always a wise choice to hire the assistance of a professional to make life a little easier. Should you decide to trap this squirrel on your own, you are going to want to look up the pros and cons of doing so-

The pros: It could be cheaper to do things by yourself, especially if you do your research and buy the right materials. Also, once you have done your research and bought all the materials necessary, you will be perfectly set for catching another wild animal, as well as another squirrel, should they dare to set foot on your land again!

Now for the cons: In the long run, you could end up paying much more by doing this alone than what you would have ended up paying to hire a professional. You could buy the wrong traps, the wrong bait, waste time and money on researching and buying those commercially sold products that are designed to repel There is no guarantee that you would get the job done as well as the professionals could have done. You won't have the entire knowledge necessary to not only trap, but also to avoid the animals from coming back again. Would you even know what to do with an squirrel once you have caught it? The professionals do - you should probably just leave it to them!

Kittery Wildlife Tip #2:
What sound do baby opossums make? -When you have an opossum in your home, there4 is always the worry that baby opossums will have accompanied it, especially if you find the animal during breeding season, which unluckily for you, is a fairly long one that ranges from December right through until October of the next year! Lucki8ly for you, you are probably going to hear these animals before you see them which will point you in the right direction as to where they are hiding, and there are a couple of distinct noises that you should be on the lookout for: The first noise you are likely to hear is a sneezing noise, or one that sounds like a small animal going "che". This is usual a talkative opossum calling to its mother for food or attention, or even just talking to its siblings. After a while, if the rest of the house is in silencer, you are probably going to hear this from the depths of the attic or your walls! The second noise is one that you are probably going to want to back away from, and this is the hissing noise. This is usually a call made by a baby opossum when it feels threatened or scared, and the last thing that you are going to want to do is wake up an angry mother that is just looking out for her young! When you hear this noise, you are in trouble and this is a good sign that the local wildlife people should be called in to resolve the problem!
