If you have a problem with wildlife in your Rochester home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in New Hampshire 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 New Hampshire and Rochester, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Rockingham County Animal Services: (603) 472-3647
Wildlife X Team New Hampshire specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. New Hampshire also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Wildlife X Team New Hampshire 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 603-869-7806 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife X Team New Hampshire is a full-service Rochester wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Rochester pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife X Team New Hampshire 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.
Rochester wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in New Hampshire 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 Hampshire law. We offer Rochester raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife X Team New Hampshire. 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 Rochester 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 Rochester 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 Rochester rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. New Hampshire 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 Rochester pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Rochester 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 Rochester trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Rochester 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. Wildlife X Team New Hampshire does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife X Team New Hampshire. 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. Wildlife X Team New Hampshire also provides dead animal removal in Rochester. 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 Rochester snake removal - most of the snakes in New Hampshire are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Rochester. And remember, we are a private business, not Rockingham County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (603) 472-3647. Rockingham 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.
Rochester Wildlife Tip #1:
Raccoon on roof - A racoon on the roof is one of the most common issues homeowners have aside from the issue of rodent infestations. Raccoons can climb almost anything, and it's not difficult for them to scale the side of a home and make their way on top of the roof. There isn't much harm in having a raccoon up there as long as you make sure no damaged areas exist where the critter can get inside. One secondary concern about raccoons on a roof is that any urine eliminated on the shingles has the potential to seep down and drip off the side of the building. Racoons can carry leptospirosis, a potentially life-threatening infection that destroys the kidneys. If this bacterium gets on a wood pile or object that is then carried inside the home, children, pets, and other adults could possibly be at risk. The best thing you can do is keep a good eye on the upper aspect of your home. If you're diligent, the raccoon will not get inside and will eventually lose interest. Make sure there are no food sources up on the shingles, especially fruit fallen from nearby trees.
Rochester Wildlife Tip #2:
What Attracts Wild animals To Your Neighborhood Or Houses - The natural habitat of the wild animal is one that offers plenty of ground cover and has plenty of insects and worms that are active under the surface, but in urban and suburban areas wild animals have proved to be quite successful. One of the first things that will attract wild animals to an area or to a specific property will be a well manicured even lawn, as this makes it very easy for them to find the insects under the surface. Although their eyesight and hearing are quite poor, wild animals have an excellent sense of smell which they use to find their food. However, wild animals that are to be found in these areas are also likely to adapt and to look for new sources of food, and one way in which they do this is to root through the garbage of people. Their advanced sense of smell will often pick up the scent of garbage that escapes through the plastic liners, and their claws find it easy enough to get into these bags. Some wild animals will also be attracted to an area by a hole or empty burrow that they can use, as they prefer to use one that has already been dug rather than having to dig their own burrow.
