If you have a problem with wildlife in your Smyrna home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Delaware 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 Delaware and Smyrna, and I recommend the following:

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife Removal Delaware is a full-service Smyrna wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Smyrna pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Removal Delaware 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.
Smyrna wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Delaware 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 Delaware law. We offer Smyrna raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Removal Delaware. 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 Smyrna 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 Smyrna 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 Smyrna rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Delaware 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 Smyrna pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Smyrna 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 Smyrna trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Smyrna 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 Removal Delaware does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Removal Delaware. 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 Removal Delaware also provides dead animal removal in Smyrna. 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 Smyrna snake removal - most of the snakes in Delaware are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Smyrna. And remember, we are a private business, not Kent County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 302-255-4646. Kent 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.
Smyrna Wildlife Tip #1:
How Do I Clean Bat Feces Out Of My Attic?
Bats are nocturnal creatures, and within past few years, they have adapted urban lifestyle. Many homeowners in the United States report the presence of bats in their attic. These creatures prefer to live in large colonies and create a lot of mess on the premises. Although bats are considered useful for the environment as they feed on harmful insects but at the same time they release harmful waste on the premises. Even if you have removed bats successfully from your premises, it is important to run complete cleaning process in the area where they had colonies.
While cleaning up bat feces, the very first thing you need to do is make efforts for your personal safety. Bat droppings contain Histoplasma Capsulatum Fungus spores that are quite harmful to human body. In case if you visit the affected area without any precaution, they can get inside your body through the air and may cause a serious disease named as histoplasmosis. Some of the common symptoms associated with this disease include muscle ache, joint pain, headache, dry cough, chest pain, and fever. Although the disease symptoms are not easily detected, they may cause huge trouble for the long run.
Bat feces contain tiny pellets that appear dry even when they are fresh and become much drier with time. With time, they may get converted into dust and can transfer to the piles below the roost. In such situation, if you walk on the piles; the disturbance may raise the dust particles in the air, and they may even travel to your body through the air during inhalation process. That is why it is important to wear protective clothing and full-face mask during the cleaning process. Experts recommend buying a HEPA vacuum cleaner level filter type mask that can ensure complete safety from dust particles. Prefer to buy the disposable ones so that you can stay protected.
Before you start the cleaning process, sprinkle some drops of water in the area so that dust cannot turn into an aerosol. The best idea is to spray water by mixing 10 percent bleach content in it. Professionals generally prefer industrial vacuums to ensure complete cleaning in the premises, but if you are using home-based methods, you can scoop the material and pack it into disposable plastic bags. Tie the bags tightly so that dust particles cannot escape.
In case if it was a large colony of bats, you may need to wet down the area continuously during cleaning process otherwise dust may escape to other portions of the house. Once all the waste material is packed in the plastic bags; take it away to landfills and dispose of it safely. But make sure that it is permissible to leave them there as per state laws. As it is a very hazardous waste, so prefer to consult local health officials to identify appropriate disposal site for the bat waste. Clean the equipment that you have used for the waste removal process to avoid the contaminants.
