If you have a problem with wildlife in your Somersworth 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 Somersworth, 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 Somersworth wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Somersworth 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.
Somersworth 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 Somersworth 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 Somersworth 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 Somersworth 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 Somersworth 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 Somersworth pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Somersworth 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 Somersworth trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Somersworth 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 Somersworth. 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 Somersworth 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 Somersworth. 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.
Somersworth Wildlife Tip #1:
What sort of bait catches a possum, raccoon, or other nuisance critter? - What would your first thought be when you catch a wild animal, such as the possum, raccoon, or other nuisance critter, in your home? OF course, you would be forgiven for thinking to yourself "CATCH THE CRITTER!" but when you think about it logically; it only really solves half of the problem, right? Once you have successfully bought your trap, (online is a great place to start, especially if you have a specific animal to catch and no time to go shopping for one) and also chosen the right bait, (for a possum, raccoon, or other nuisance critter, you should probably go for cat or dog food, road kill that you have come across, sweet fruits, or leftovers from dinner) and you managed to successfully trap and release the creature, how do you know that this one, or others like it, is not going to come back? This is when the following precautions come into play - Firstly - seal up any holes that your animal could use to gain access to your home. That chimney might not look like an animal door to you, but the possum, raccoon, or other nuisance critter is going to love it. The same applies for the holes for the air conditioning units, as well as the windows that have not been covered by screens. Eliminate the holes, and you will have eliminated the problem within your home. Next, use some artificial intelligence, so to speak. A fake owl in the tree could easily fool a passing possum, raccoon, or other nuisance critter, as could a cleverly placed fake hawk on the roof, or a snake lying in wait on the lawn. Sometimes something as simple as this is all you need. But to be honest, these devices usually fail. Finally, think about investing in some cayenne pepper. A lot of wild animals detest this spicy smell, so by using it around your flower beds, fruit trees, and other places in your home or yard, you could potentially be avoiding a much bigger problem!
Somersworth Wildlife Tip #2:
What to do if skunk damage the crawl space of the house - Chances are the crawl space of your house had some serious damage before the skunk got inside. Yes, a skunk will dig and cause some damage, but the animal isn't going to compromise your foundation or chew apart your cinder blocks. The very fact that you have a skunk in the crawlspace means something was damaged enough to let the animal inside to begin with. You will have to fix this damage, but you're going to have to trap and remove the skunk first. This can be done on your own or by a professional. Don't be too optimistic about claiming the crawlspace damage on your homeowner's insurance. Because a home has to be damaged prior to a critter invasion, most insurance companies will consider a skunk in the crawlspace the result of negligence. Unfortunately, repairing a damaged crawlspace is no easy task. It often means knocking out parts of the foundation, and that can mean having to raise the house completely up on temporary supports.
