If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Knightdale home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in North Carolina 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 Knightdale, and I recommend the following:
Triangle Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 919-346-8262
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Wake County Animal Services: 919-856-6911
Triangle 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. North Carolina also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Triangle 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 919-346-8262

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
- Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
- Fully North Carolina and Wake County licensed and insured

- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Triangle Wildlife Removal is a full-service Knightdale wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Knightdale pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Triangle 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.
Knightdale wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in North Carolina 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 North Carolina law. We offer Knightdale raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Triangle 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 Knightdale 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 Knightdale 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 Knightdale rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. North Carolina 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 Knightdale pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Knightdale 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 Knightdale trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Knightdale 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. Triangle Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Triangle 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
. Triangle Wildlife Removal
also provides dead animal removal in Knightdale. 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 Knightdale snake removal - most of the snakes in North Carolina are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Knightdale. And remember, we are a private business, not Wake County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 919-856-6911.
Wake County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Knightdale Wildlife Tip #1:IS A COYOTE THAT IS ACTIVE DURING THE DAY TIME SICK OR RABID?
Given that coyotes are nocturnal creatures, people often wonder if the coyotes that lurk around during the day time are disease stricken. In Florida, coyotes suffering from diseases will wander around at any time of the day in search of food anywhere it can find. They are often times seen in alleys and in the backyard of buildings. Their day time movement would cause them to occasionally clash with humans and in the case that they come in contact with other animals, they become very aggressive.
True that sickness is one of the reasons why a person might sight a coyote in the day time, it is not the only reason. They could be out to hunt prey. They are often properly studied during the daytime to ensure they do not suffer from a kind of disease. If upon approach the coyote gets scared and attempts retreat, then the animal is healthy and exhibiting instincts that are natural. However, a coyote that does not run upon approach does not mean it is sick, it could mean that it had been fed by humans in the past and thus is unafraid of them and has grown used to them.
Since the coyote is a warm blooded animal, it is very open to such infections that plague pet dogs like rabies. This happens when it comes in contact with these animals. To ascertain that a coyote roaming in the day time is sick, one needs to move closer to it, if it does not run and shows aggressive behavior by charging back, then it is sick. Sick coyotes have the tendencies to stop abruptly in the middle of an attack or pretend completely that the human is not there. For the coyote that is just hungry, it will run upon approach or look into the Hinman's hands to see if he or she is bringing food to it.
Sick coyotes often look very pale and thin, it could have bruises on its skin too. When one takes a closer look, they can spot saliva drooping out of the mouth of these creatures. It could take breaks from its moving around by crouching for rest. Sick coyotes are always fatigued. This is a sign that the disease has advanced greatly and is resident in its internal organs. Basically, it is easy to tell a sick coyote from its appearance. It is safest to call professional animal rehabilitators when these sick creatures are spotted. It is advised that an inexperienced person does not take on a coyote on their own as it is very unpredictable and could charge at the individual.
Also, it may be pregnancy that ails the coyote and not any other diseases.
Knightdale Wildlife Tip #2:
North Carolina Wildlife Information:
North Carolina State bird: Northern cardinal
State mammal: Gray squirrel
State reptile: Eastern box turtle
State fish: Channel bass
State insect: European honeybee
Few states have as nice of a geological flow as North Carolina. This state is divided almost into equal sections, making up three distinct habitat zones. The first zone, known as the coastal plain, starts with the sandy beaches by the Atlantic Ocean and heads inland through flat fields of tall grass. Eventually the land begins to rise upward, giving way to the central section of gentle foothills and thicker forests. The Appalachian Mountains make up the final, most inland section of the state. Here, the weather can be slightly cooler, though North Carolina is considered to have a consistently warm climate.
At the coast, beach-goers and business owners have to do daily battle with the scores of bold seagulls. These birds are fearless when it comes to people and pets, and they are so brazen they will often take food right away from people on the sand. Not only are the seagulls thieves, they eventually expel their waste all over the beach, sidewalks, and sea-side businesses. Other creature issues in the sand are related to jellyfish, which wash up on shore daily. These aquatic animals can sting even in death, and many an unwary, barefoot soul has stepped on the gelatinous pile and gotten stung.
North Carolina has a range of coastal islands called the Outer Banks. These islands are home to the Banker horse, a small, stocky animal with bloodlines originating form Spanish horses brought over with the explorers. These horses are protected because of their historical import, and they are allowed to roam free on the islands, walking across roadways and grazing in people's front yards. The wildlife agencies that oversee the horse population make sure they are free of infectious disease.
Large predators in the state stay mainly in the foothills and the mountains. These include coyotes and black bear. While shy, black bear have been known to destroy birdfeeders due to their love of birdseed. They will also take advantage of an unprotected garbage bin. Unlike coyotes, black bear will move on once the food supply has vanished. Coyotes, if in an urban setting, can be a threat to children and pets.
North Carolina also has a familiar list of nuisance animals such as the raccoon, opossum, skunk, woodchuck, porcupine, beaver, squirrel, rat, bat, and snake.
