If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Newport home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Rhode Island 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 Newport, and I recommend the following:
Bay State Wildlife
Cell Phone: 401-223-4430
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Newport RI County Animal Services: 401-846-8276
Bay State Wildlife specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Rhode Island also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Bay State Wildlife 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 401-223-4430
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 Rhode Island and Newport RI 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
Bay State Wildlife is a full-service Newport wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Newport pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Bay State Wildlife 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.
Newport wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island law. We offer Newport raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Bay State Wildlife. 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 Newport 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 Newport 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 Newport rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Rhode Island 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 Newport pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Newport 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 Newport trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Newport 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. Bay State Wildlife does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Bay State Wildlife. 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
. Bay State Wildlife
also provides dead animal removal in Newport. 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 Newport snake removal - most of the snakes in Rhode Island are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Newport. And remember, we are a private business, not Newport RI County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 401-846-8276.
Newport RI County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Newport Wildlife Tip #1:
Trapping mouse or rats in attic - what to do when you have removed a dead mouse or rat from your attic - The problem with trapping mouse or rats in attic is that you will often find that there are so many other things that you will still be expected to do, and this is very much so the case when you have managed to find a dead mouse or rat trapped. For the most part, calling a local wildlife guy will be the better answer, simply because they are trained to deal with such eventualities, but if you want to do the sorting out yourself, there are more than a few things that you will need to figure out. You must ensure that you get rid of all traces of the animal, and by this we mean the carcass, the feces, urine, and more. Without doing this, you will find that your house will stink to high heaven, and there is a huge risk of disease, especially if you have household pets too. Unfortunately, finding the animal and disposing of it, either by burial or incineration is not the last of your problem, and that can be a very grueling fact, especially if you are already finding the stench of a decomposing body too much to bear. You will need to get your hands on a good biological cleaner in order to completely rid of the biohazard and smell from your attic. You can call the local wildlife guys to find the best ones to use - they will usually have a list that you can choose from. This will help to break down any remnants from the creature's existence in your attic, and will also help to break down any leftover stench. On top of that, you are going to want to go around your home and open all windows - this will allow the house to air out and will make the smell move faster. This can be done even faster still if you are lucky enough to have fans at your disposal - ideally you should place at least one in the attic to let the smell dissipate. Once you have done all of these things, you will then need to look at preventative methods to avoid the situation from happening again. Are you still sure that you don't want to hire a professional?
Newport Wildlife Tip #2:
Trapping Wild animals Tips - One of the first things to do when trying to trap an wild animal is to examine the area where it is causing the problem and to see where it is most active and whether there is one point that it is using repeatedly. If there is a weak point in the fence where it is getting through or a hole that it is going in and out of, this is often a good place to locate the trap. It is also frequently possible to look at signs in the soil itself to choose where to place the trap, as wild animals do have large claws that leave significant tracks in the dirt. As well as the importance of the location of the trap, another thing that can help catch the wild animal successfully is to use wooden boards or wire mesh to help guide the wild animal into the trap. Some wild animals that have become cage shy will often avoid these unless there is no option but to go into the trap. Bait can also be very helpful for those who are trying to catch an wild animal, with worms and maggots being attractive to wild animals, along with spoiled meat and fruit also being quite successful.
