Milford Wildlife Animal Control

Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Milford, PA

If you have a problem with wildlife in your Milford 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 Pennsylvania and Milford, and I recommend the following:

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:

  • Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
  • Fully Pennsylvania and Pike 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

  • Fur and Feathers Wildlife Control is a full-service Milford wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Milford pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Fur and Feathers 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.

    Milford 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 Milford raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.

    Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Fur and Feathers 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 Milford 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 Milford 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 Milford 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 Milford pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Milford 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 Milford trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Milford 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. Fur and Feathers Wildlife Control does both.

    The above are just some of the services offered by Fur and Feathers 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. 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. Fur and Feathers Wildlife Control also provides dead animal removal in Milford. 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 Milford 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 Milford. And remember, we are a private business, not Pike County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (570) 296-7654. Pike County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

    Milford Wildlife Tip #1:
    How to catch a squirrel with a snare pole

    Those who are not that much familiar with the trapping process, it may sound something hard but actually trapping is very easy if done in the proper way. Snaring, trapping are like small games that help you get rid of the squirrels effectively while you can also gain a great experience at the same time. Snaring is very easy that requires you to have few feet flexible wire, some patience and that's it. The full process to catch a squirrel with a snare pole is described here.

    Step 1

    The first step is to find out a tree that has huge traffic of squirrels in its every branch. Probably a tree that produces nuts is the best tree as this small creature is very fond of nuts. Oak or hickory also can do the job best.

    Step 2

    Once you get perfect tree where the snaring will be done, next go ahead with process. Now search for a limb of medium sized, it is better if the limb has a diameter of 2-3 inches and it is 4-5 feet long. It is also helpful if the limb will have foliage in it as this helps to conceal the snare wire which makes the process much easier.

    Step 3

    As you have decided the limb to be used as the runway of the squirrels the next step is to lock it against the tree branch at a downward 45 degree angle. Also you can place a stone in it so that the limb is wedged against the tree stalk perfectly.

    Step 4

    Next job is to construct the snare with the help of wire. This requires a wire of around 10 inch long and then create a small loop at one end of the wire. Twist the wire to make the loop tight enough and then take the other end of the wire to pass it through the created loop. Now tighten the snare around the slope and then wrap the wire in the pole followed by which it is to be twisted again just as you did with the first created loop.

    The snare is ready. It is to be set now in the runway of the squirrels at various intervals and angles. For better result make sure the snare has a diameter of 2 inches and it is set 1and inches up the runways.

    So, this is how you can catch squirrels with a snare pole. This process is no doubt effective to successfully kill the squirrels but in case they do not die in strangulation, then you might have to kill them physically which is again very cruel and a sign of inhumane.

    Milford Wildlife Tip #2:


    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.
