If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Lewisburg 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 Lewisburg, and I recommend the following:
Ace Bat and Wildlife Control
Cell Phone: 570-904-8590
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Union County Animal Services: (570) 784-3669
Ace Bat and Wildlife Control 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 Ace Bat and Wildlife 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 570-904-8590
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 Union 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
Ace Bat and Wildlife Control is a full-service Lewisburg wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Lewisburg pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Ace Bat and Wildlife 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.
Lewisburg 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 Lewisburg raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Ace Bat and Wildlife 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 Lewisburg 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 Lewisburg 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 Lewisburg 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 Lewisburg pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Lewisburg 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 Lewisburg trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Lewisburg 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. Ace Bat and Wildlife Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Ace Bat and Wildlife 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.

. 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
. Ace Bat and Wildlife Control
also provides dead animal removal in Lewisburg. 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 Lewisburg 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 Lewisburg. And remember, we are a private business, not Union County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (570) 784-3669.
Union County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Lewisburg Wildlife Tip #1:
What sort of bait catches a possum, raccoon, or other nuisance critter? - What would your first thought be when you catch a wild animal, such as the possum, raccoon, or other nuisance critter, in your home? OF course, you would be forgiven for thinking to yourself "CATCH THE CRITTER!" but when you think about it logically; it only really solves half of the problem, right? Once you have successfully bought your trap, (online is a great place to start, especially if you have a specific animal to catch and no time to go shopping for one) and also chosen the right bait, (for a possum, raccoon, or other nuisance critter, you should probably go for cat or dog food, road kill that you have come across, sweet fruits, or leftovers from dinner) and you managed to successfully trap and release the creature, how do you know that this one, or others like it, is not going to come back? This is when the following precautions come into play - Firstly - seal up any holes that your animal could use to gain access to your home. That chimney might not look like an animal door to you, but the possum, raccoon, or other nuisance critter is going to love it. The same applies for the holes for the air conditioning units, as well as the windows that have not been covered by screens. Eliminate the holes, and you will have eliminated the problem within your home. Next, use some artificial intelligence, so to speak. A fake owl in the tree could easily fool a passing possum, raccoon, or other nuisance critter, as could a cleverly placed fake hawk on the roof, or a snake lying in wait on the lawn. Sometimes something as simple as this is all you need. But to be honest, these devices usually fail. Finally, think about investing in some cayenne pepper. A lot of wild animals detest this spicy smell, so by using it around your flower beds, fruit trees, and other places in your home or yard, you could potentially be avoiding a much bigger problem!
Lewisburg Wildlife Tip #2:
What Can You Buy To Drive Away Wild animal Under The Shed - Having an wild animal living under the shed is probably one of the most frustrating things of all for many gardeners, and they will want to get rid of the animal as soon as possible. This is why some people will go to their local hardware store to see what wild animal repellents are available to drive the animal out, and there are plenty of products that claim to be able to drive away wild animals. However, there are also a number of different home remedies that people can use, and many of the ingredients for these are also commonly available and can often be bought from a general store. Unfortunately, the reality with all of these products is that there is no reliable wild animal repellent that has been discovered, and this means that many people will actually be wasting their money on these items. Wild animals have only recently become established over recent centuries in North America, and there are no natural predators for these animals on the continent. Because the majority of repellents work by replicating a predator's scent, this simply doesn't work when it comes to getting rid of wild animals, which is why people will have to look for a different solution to the problem.
Pennsylvania Wildlife Information:
Pennsylvania State bird: Ruffed grouse
State mammal: White-tailed deer
tate insect: 7-spotted ladybug, Pennsylvania firefly
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.
