If you have a problem with wildlife in your Lake Winnipesaukee 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 New Hampshire and Lake Winnipesaukee, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Belknap County Animal Services: (603) 472-3647
Wildlife X Team New Hampshire 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 Wildlife X Team New Hampshire 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 603-259-4154 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife X Team New Hampshire is a full-service Lake Winnipesaukee wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Lake Winnipesaukee pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife X Team New Hampshire 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.
Lake Winnipesaukee 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 Lake Winnipesaukee raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife X Team New Hampshire. 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 Lake Winnipesaukee 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 Lake Winnipesaukee 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 Lake Winnipesaukee 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 Lake Winnipesaukee pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Lake Winnipesaukee 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 Lake Winnipesaukee trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Lake Winnipesaukee 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. Wildlife X Team New Hampshire does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife X Team New Hampshire. 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. Wildlife X Team New Hampshire also provides dead animal removal in Lake Winnipesaukee. 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 Lake Winnipesaukee 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 Lake Winnipesaukee. And remember, we are a private business, not Belknap County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (603) 472-3647. Belknap County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Lake Winnipesaukee Wildlife Tip #1:
What to do about a possum or skunk under your house? - So... you think you have a possum or skunk living under your home and you are not sure what to do! Don't panic, ladies and gentleman, for help is at hand. There are a few easy steps to resolve this pesky problem, and as long as you follow these directions, you will be possum or skunk-free in next to no time at all! Get yourself some heavy duty, durable material. Why? To block up the holes that the possum or skunk is using to gain access to your home, of course! You could use a number of materials, but you must make sure that the possum or skunk cannot claw or nibble through it. Try looking at vinyl, stucco, mesh wiring, or wood.
1. Look around your home for holes. It could be something as large as a gaping hole in the side of your home, or something as small as a drain, air conditioning unit, or even an open window with a broken screen door.
2.Try to work out which of the holes your possum or skunk is using, and if they are using more than one, the one that they are using the most. This will take a little investigative work, but it will be worth it in the end, we promise you!
3. Block up all of the holes with the material that you bought, with the exception of the most used hole. Why not this hole? Well, if you do block this hole up as well, you are going to be blocking the creature underneath your home, and very soon it will die of starvation if nothing else. Then your home is going to stink and you are going to kick yourself!
4. Using the most used hole, place a trap nearby and bait it. Lay in wait until you have caught the creature.
5. Once the animal has been caught, block up the final hole and you should have put a stop to the rather annoying possum or skunk problem!
Lake Winnipesaukee Wildlife Tip #2:
Do Wild animals Have Rabies - Rabies is a disease that has long been associated with stray dogs and raccoons, but it is fair to say that there are many different types of animals that can carry the disease, which is one that can be transmitted to humans. Much like any other animal, wild animals can be infected with rabies and can carry the disease, but it is worth noting that they aren't considered to be a particular threat as the percentage of animals with the disease is very small indeed. However, for anyone that is bitten by a wild animal, it is always good advice to go to a doctor and be checked for rabies, as it can be a very harmful condition indeed. One aspect that is worth mentioning when looking at the diseases that are carried by wild animals is that they are known as carriers of the disease that can lead to leprosy in humans. This is only to be found in a relatively small number of the wild animal population, and it is still very rare for this to be transmitted to humans. Indeed, the cases where transmission has occurred in recent years have all been linked with the consumption of wild animal meat that has been undercooked.
