If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Salem 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 Salem, and I recommend the following:
Cell Phone: 603-292-3574
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Rockingham County Animal Services: (603) 890-2390
Critter 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 Hampshire also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Critter 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 603-292-3574
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 Hampshire and Rockingham 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
Critter Control is a full-service Salem wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Salem pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Critter 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.
Salem 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 Salem raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Critter 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 Salem 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 Salem 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 Salem 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 Salem pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Salem 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 Salem trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Salem 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. Critter Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Critter 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
. Critter Control
also provides dead animal removal in Salem. 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 Salem 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 Salem. 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) 890-2390.
Rockingham County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Salem Wildlife Tip #1:EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HOUSE MOUSE
The quiet and timid creature which crawls around the house and get disappeared under the cabinets if they are spotted! Mouse only attacks those houses which haven't done their job of hiding and protecting food in a desired manner. Mice infestation is a common problem so if you are dealing with it then be happy as you are not the only one! There might be few things which you should know about the mice living in your home and making those irritating sounds that you can hear through the walls!
They have body length of about 3 to 4 inches and can be white, grey, brown or even black in colour wholly or partially. Their thin tail can have a length of 2 to 3.9 inches with hairs all over their body. They have got bright eyes which you can see even in the dark (although their sight is bit poor) and erect round ears which are pointed and can hear even the sound with lowest frequency. With their two feet and palms they crawl all around the place.
Life Span & Biology
Life span of mouse is not very long as they are always surrounded with their predators such as cats, foxes and snakes. They can live for about five months as they are fed upon by their predators. But if they are kept in protective environment then they can live up to two years. But mice multiply at a very fast rate (more than you may imagine). A female mouse can give birth to around 35 babies in a year! Every new born mouse is deaf and can hear only after 21 days but the mice are sexually mature only after six weeks so can you can imagine the rate at which they can multiply if relevant steps are not taken to get rid of them!
Mice can live in manmade structures, forests and grasslands too! Weather is not a constraint for a mouse and they can breed in both summers and winters. Hence, they are found across the world in all regions. They love to stay near the food source irrespective of the dirt and thus they can carry around 200 human pathogens. They can through small openings as well for regular source of food and water.
They have got tiny bodies and small stomach, but they usually consume food from around 15 to 20 times in a day. They are omnivores and their diet should contain at least 20 percent of protein for healthy nutrition. Mouse generally consumes around 15 grams of food and 15 ml of water per 100 grams of their body weight.
Mice are sort of gymnasts as they are good jumpers, climbers and swimmers too! Due to this they can climb on kitchen counters and pantries to access food on shelves. They are nocturnal and thus prefer night over day light to hunt their food. They are territorial and respect territories of each other. Also, their average sleep time is around 12.5 hours a day and thus you don't spot them during the day time.
