If you have a problem with wildlife in your Revere home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts and Revere, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Suffolk County Animal Services: (781) 286-8345
Animal Damage Control specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Massachusetts also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Animal Damage 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 781-352-4000 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Animal Damage Control is a full-service Revere wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Revere pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Animal Damage 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.
Revere wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts law. We offer Revere raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Animal Damage 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 Revere 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 Revere 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 Revere rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Massachusetts 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 Revere pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Revere 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 Revere trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Revere 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. Animal Damage Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Animal Damage 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. Animal Damage Control also provides dead animal removal in Revere. 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 Revere snake removal - most of the snakes in Massachusetts are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Revere. And remember, we are a private business, not Suffolk County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (781) 286-8345. Suffolk County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Revere Wildlife Tip #1:
What do wildlife rehabilitators do with raccoons?
If you will hike to the woods with your friends, it will indeed be very beneficial to you all. But, there are still some dangers that you all will encounter. Remember that the woods are still a dangerous place for wildlife animals. If you hike on the trail and you have accidentally found a baby raccoon, it will be a good idea to call wildlife rehabilitators. They will be there and will do their job.
Wildlife Rehabilitators Having Some Specific Skills
Wildlife rehabilitators are known for having some specific skills. These have been obtained from several months of trainings. In addition to that, they have their medical skills including veterinary skills.
Nevertheless, not all people can become wildlife rehabilitators. Not all people are passionate about or have the interested about wildlife animals. There are only a few who would really be serious of taking up this job. Just like other college sources, it will require several months of hard work and training.
Wildlife Rehabilitators Study the Anatomy of Animals
If ever you have found a baby raccoon that cries down the road, you need to look for wildlife rehabilitators. They will help you because they study the anatomy of animals like the raccoons. They will also diagnose the issue immediately. They will also be there to understand the illness that affects the baby raccoon. They will also act accordingly. One more thing is that they are an expert when it comes to physical therapy. They could easily identify the trauma of the baby raccoons. They could also identify any deformity or even an injured bone. They could assess fracture and any other thing.
Not Advised to Handle the Wildlife Animal Alone
It is actually not advised for you to handle the wildlife animal alone. This is due to the reason that there might come up more problems. There are also animals that have feral instincts. That is why it is suggested for you to ask for help from wildlife rehabilitators. They are knowledgeable enough on how to handle and manage the animal. That way, it will never get offended or aroused. Remember that behavior ology is another branch. It is recommended to enroll to a course that will help you in order to handle the wildlife animal.
Wildlife Rehabilitators Trained in the Basic First Aid Skills
In addition to what you need to know about wildlife rehabilitators, they are also trained in the basic first aid skills. They will help the raccoons and will keep them in such a warm place. They will also keep their wounds from possibly infecting. That way, the situation will never enervate and will not cause more troubles. They will also make it sure that the raccoons are all safe. That's for sure because they are trained in what they do!
Revere Wildlife Tip #2:
Massachusetts Wildlife Information:
Massachusetts State bird: Black-capped chickadee, wild turkey
State mammal: Right whale
State reptile: Garter snake
State fish: Cod
State insect: 7-spotted ladybug
Massachusetts is one of the smallest states, having only a little more than 10,000 square miles of land. This land was once heavily forested with both pine and hardwood trees, but early agriculture stripped the region almost completely bare of forest. Now, there are only a few groups of old woods, and most of the forested areas are secondary growth. Still, abandon farmland has reverted a little more than half of the state back to forest. The loss of trees chased many species out of Massachusetts, and some native animals, like elk, wolves, cougars, and wolverines, are considered extinct now in the state. The regrowth of trees has lured back in moose and black bear, two large animals that had also been missing since the deforestation.
The young forest vegetation is fantastic for the proliferation of wild turkey, and there are flocks of the birds in most of the state from coastal plain to the edge of the Appalachian Mountains. Turkeys are considered a species of wild game and can be hunted during certain seasons. Incredibly acute hearing makes them difficult to sneak up on, and they can pinpoint a sound from hundreds of meters away. Their eyesight, however, is not particularly good.
Life on the Atlantic coast means dealing with the marine animals that love the oceans. Massachusetts has several large bays that make up its coastline. In these bays, there are numerous seal species, whales, lobster, dolphins, and walruses. The marine animals are rarely nuisances, but seals and walruses have been known to bask near homeowner's docks. The real pests on the coastline are the seagulls. These birds have become bold, and when they aren't hunting in the sand for small crustaceans, they will steal food right out of people's hands.
Anywhere in the state, at any time, there are numerous raccoons looking for places to steal food from or shelters to have a litter of babies. Raccoons usually leave the woods to have their young, and Massachusetts is no exception, especially because it is lacking old, wide, dead trees. If the female raccoon doesn't feel the forest is safe, she'll be looking for an attic. Other home invaders in the state are rats, squirrels, mice, skunks, and opossums. At any time, there might be a woodchuck or a wayward porcupine out in the yard.
You can always call Animal Damage Control, any time of day, at 781-352-4000, for a price quote for Revere wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Revere, MA.
