Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Lynchburg, VA

Lynchburg Wildlife Animal Control

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

Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC
Cell Phone: 540-322-3005

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Campbell County Animal Services: (434) 846-1438



Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Virginia also has a documented problem with bats in buildings, and Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC 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 540-322-3005 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 Virginia and Campbell 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


Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC is a full-service Lynchburg wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Lynchburg pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC 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.

  Lynchburg wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Virginia 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 Virginia law. We offer Lynchburg raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC. 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 Lynchburg 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 Lynchburg 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 Lynchburg rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
  Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Virginia 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 Lynchburg pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Lynchburg 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 Lynchburg trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Lynchburg 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. Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC. 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. Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC also provides dead animal removal in Lynchburg. 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 Lynchburg snake removal - most of the snakes in Virginia are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Lynchburg. And remember, we are a private business, not Campbell County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (434) 846-1438. Campbell County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Lynchburg 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!

Lynchburg Wildlife Tip #2:
Traps For Wild animal Removal - There are a number of different manufacturers who will offer traps that can be used to catch and remove wild animals, with cage traps making up the vast majority of options available for those wanting to remove an wild animal. These are traps that are made up of a cage that has enough space for the wild animal to move around in without being able to damage the trap itself, with one part of the trap that snaps shut when the wild animal gets inside. The traps that are used to catch wild animals are of a successful design that can be used to catch many other animals of a similar size, and may be marketed to catch raccoons and even stray cats. When you are buying a suitable trap to catch an wild animal, it is vital to make sure that it is of a good strong wire metal construction as the wild animal will try and escape by clawing at the wire with its strong claws. It is also good to look at the mechanism of the trap itself, with the simpler traps being less likely to go wrong. Many traps will also come with a guide of how to place and use the trap, which can be very useful for people who are new to catching wild animals.

Virginia Wildlife Information:

Virginia State bird: Northern cardinal
State mammal: Virginia big-eared bat
State fish: Brook trout, striped bass
State insect: Tiger swallowtail butterfly

Virginia is attached to the Chesapeake Bay, and because of this, it has a large coastal plain that extends inland, passing the bay's tributaries and eventually ending at the swelling of rocky foothills. Those foothills spread into the Blue Ridge Mountains, an extension of the Appalachian range. The state has an abundance of carbonated rock which has led to the creation of thousands of cave systems. Ten of those systems are currently open to the public, leaving about 3,990 on private land or currently uncharted. Along with the caves comes a variety of bat species, including the big brown bat, Brazilian free-tailed bat, eastern red bat, evening bat, gray bat, and the hoary bat, to name a few. Caves are the perfect habitat for these animals, which can either migrate or hibernate in the colder months. While Virginia is not prone to particularly harsh winters, the cave systems make a good, temperature-controlled place for hibernation.

Bats, though numerous, are only a small portion of the animal population in Virginia. The state has a number of predators including black bears, bobcats, cougars, and coyotes. This state doesn't have huge issues with the larger predators mainly because of how mountainous and wild the habitat has remained. The coastal plain is much more covered in people's homes, and this is where critters like squirrels and raccoons love to play. Because of the amount of trees in this state, it doesn't take long for a vertical-loving animal to find a way into a house. While raccoons and squirrels are definitely on the list of nuisance animals, they are among a score of others including woodchucks, skunks, porcupines, and opossums.

The state is also perfect for birds, and Virginia has a population of golden eagles, a large avian that tends to live in isolated settings across the globe. Not much research has been done on the golden eagle, and Virginia wildlife authorities hope they can study the growing population and shed some light on the species.

The fresh water feeding into the Chesapeake Bay provides a good ecosystem for amphibians and reptiles, and Virginia has a number of water-loving snakes including the cottonmouth and the common water snake. The state also has glass lizards, a snake-like creature, and the only limbless lizard in the United States.

You can always call Blue Ridge Wildlife & Pest Management, LLC, any time of day, at 540-322-3005, for a price quote for Lynchburg wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Lynchburg, VA.
