Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Orange County, NY

Orange County Wildlife Animal Control

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

Ace Bat and Wildlife Control
Cell Phone: 845-520-9272

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Orange County Animal Services: 845-692-4440



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. New York 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 845-520-9272 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 New York and Orange 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 Orange County wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Orange County 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.

  Orange County wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in New York 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 New York law. We offer Orange County 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 Orange County 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 Orange County 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 Orange County rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
  Bat removal is a highly specialized task. New York 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 Orange County pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Orange County 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 Orange County trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Orange County 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. 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. Ace Bat and Wildlife Control also provides dead animal removal in Orange County. 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 Orange County snake removal - most of the snakes in New York are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Orange County. And remember, we are a private business, not Orange County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 845-692-4440. Orange County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Orange County Wildlife Tip #1:
What do you do with a squirrel you trapped - Choosing the experts over doing it yourself? - Have you found a squirrel living in your home or yard? If you have then you have two main choices - you can either choose to catch this creature yourself and release or exterminate it, or you can call upon the assistance of a professional to give you a hand. Of course, there will be both pros and cons for both, and these are things that you are going to need to figure out before you make your final decision. Starting with "going it alone", you will find that once you have done the job properly by buying the right traps, getting the right bait and figuring out what to do with the animal once you have caught it, you could actually save money. However, in order to get all of the little parts of catching the animal right, you are going to need to do your research which can take a lot of time. If you don't get it right first time, or get carried away with the "toys" sold on the market designed to remove or repel the creatures, you will find that in the long run, it could actually cost you more.

Orange County Wildlife Tip #2:
Noise in the yard skunks - Skunks make an array of sounds, some of which are remarkably like those of other animals. A skunk chirp is often indistinguishable from a bird chirp, and they can also make a squealing sound akin to that of a pig. They growl, grunt, and chatter. Just like other wild animals, skunks are most vocal when around other skunks, when they are with young, when they are feeling frightened, and when it is breeding season. If you hear skunks out in your yard it means there is something out there luring them to the space. You will never be able to keep skunks out all of the time unless you install a perimeter fence. The best thing you can hope for is to take away your property's appeal. This means cleaning up any fallen fruit from fruit trees, putting away pet food bowls, keeping garbage closed in containers until pickup day, and make sure compost piles are underground. You should also do your best to protect any vegetable gardens. Insects are one of the primary food sources of skunks, and long grass in your yard will hold in moisture and breed bugs. Keep your lawn mowed and you'll see fewer skunks.

New York Wildlife Information:

New York State State bird: Eastern bluebird
State mammal: Beaver
State amphibian: Wood frog
State fish: Brook trout and striped bass
State insect: 9-spotted ladybug
State reptile: Common snapping turtle

New York, the Empire State, has a diverse population of animals, attributed to the state's variety of landscapes and wide range of temperatures. Not only are there heat-loving animals in New York, like snakes, frogs, and turtles, there are a good number of animals just as oriented to survival in cold weather, like wolves, bear, and deer. Most of these cold-to-warm critters have adaptations not seen in other states. White-tailed deer, for example, will store fat and develop thick coats for the cold season, whereas their cousins in the warmer southern states have no need for such an improvement. If winter is too much for an animal in New York State, it either enters of form of hibernation or it migrates. This is true for the numerous bats, woodchucks, geese, amphibians, and snakes in the area.

People who aren't from New York often associate the state with the large city that shares its name. New York City, though it houses the majority of people in the state, is just a small part of the landscape. Upstate New York, which can be rural or urban, is far larger, and has the bulk of wildlife New York is known for.

Unfortunately, because New York is widely populated with the exception of the Adirondack Mountains, most of the animals in the state have the potential to become nuisances. Residents have their fair share of raccoon, opossum, skunk, and woodchuck invasions every year. Beaver, though not as densely populated as they once were, number in the hundreds of thousands. These creatures are not terribly problematic unless homeowners live near bodies of water that are being flooded or drained due to beaver activity. Some landscape damage from tree-felling is also characteristic of this wood-loving critter. While beaver, skunks, squirrels, and woodchucks aren't predatory to people, there are a number of dangerous wild animals in New York that can become pests. The number one problem predator is the coyote. Because of a population boom, this canine has spread to both urban and rural areas, killing pets and livestock, posing a threat to small children. Coyotes are also common carriers of rabies in the state along with skunks and raccoons.

When it comes to rabies, however, bats are still the number one species for infection in New York. There are thousands of confirmed animal rabies cases in the state every year, and the Department of Environmental Control took to vaccinating the animal population with vaccine-doctored food blocks dropped into the wild by way of helicopter.

You can always call Ace Bat and Wildlife Control, any time of day, at 845-520-9272, for a price quote for Orange County wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Orange County, NY.
