If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Lexington 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 Lexington, and I recommend the following:
Triad Wildlife Experts
Cell Phone: 336-310-0879
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Davidson County Animal Services: (336) 243-3302
Triad Wildlife Experts 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 Triad Wildlife Experts 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 336-310-0879
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 North Carolina and Davidson 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
Triad Wildlife Experts is a full-service Lexington wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Lexington pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Triad Wildlife Experts 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.
Lexington 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 Lexington raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Triad Wildlife Experts. 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 Lexington 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 Lexington 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 Lexington 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 Lexington pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Lexington 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 Lexington trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Lexington 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. Triad Wildlife Experts does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Triad Wildlife Experts. 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
. Triad Wildlife Experts
also provides dead animal removal in Lexington. 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 Lexington 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 Lexington. And remember, we are a private business, not Davidson County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (336) 243-3302.
Davidson County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Lexington Wildlife Tip #1:What to do about a cage-shy (hard to trap) squirrel?
There are many tricks and tips that you could try to consider. In this sense, you need to accept the fact that you are using the wrong cage, and the wrong bait.
Things to Keep in Mind
You will be using a small trap that measures 6 by 6 by 18 in its size. In addition to that, you must make it sure that you place the trap right where you could find the squirrel. You could also monitor the squirrel for several days. Learn where it enters and exits your home. You must also bolt the trap right through the hole. It will run out and into the trap. You can already be free of relocating it. Thus, it will no longer bother or stress you out again.
Peanuts, Bird Feed and Hole Are Examples of Bait
Peanuts, bird feed and hole are some of the good examples of bait. Even if squirrels are considered as scavengers, they still like to eat a lot of foods. You will also need to understand that a live cage trap will never be the best solution for your issue.
Exclusion Methods and Devices are Preferred
If you want to solve the issue of squirrels, it will be essential to prefer exclusion methods and devices. They will get panicked and confused after being caught inside a cage. This could somehow lead into such an erratic behavior. They may as well get injured. If you will make use of exclusion devices, you may just seal up the small holes. Seal up until the very last hole. This is where you find the exclusion device.
Squirrels Attractive to look at but Can Also be Destructive and Annoying
Truly, squirrels can be attractive to look at. But, they can also be very destructive and annoying. If you are still stressed out by these squirrels, you need to be patient. You need to understand your yard or your property. They could disturb you in many peaceful ways. They may as well create havoc in your lawn and garden. They may eat up vegetables and fruits that you find difficult to grow. They may also dig in flower beds and lawn. Since they can destroy and crush your garden furniture, you need to do something about it! You need to implement some effective measures!
Lexington 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.
