Tuckahoe Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Tuckahoe home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Virginia 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 Tuckahoe, and I recommend the following:

Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services
Cell Phone: 804-302-5810

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Henrico County Animal Services: 804-727-8800

Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Virginia also has a documented problem with bats in buildings, and Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services 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 804-302-5810 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 Virginia and Henrico 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

Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services is a full-service Tuckahoe wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Tuckahoe pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services 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.

  Tuckahoe wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Virginia 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 Virginia law. We offer Tuckahoe raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services. 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 Tuckahoe 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 Tuckahoe 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 Tuckahoe rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
  Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Virginia 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 Tuckahoe pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Tuckahoe 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 Tuckahoe trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Tuckahoe 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. Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services. 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. Virginia Professional Wildlife Removal Services also provides dead animal removal in Tuckahoe. 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 Tuckahoe snake removal - most of the snakes in Virginia are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Tuckahoe. And remember, we are a private business, not Henrico County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 804-727-8800. Henrico County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Tuckahoe Wildlife Tip #1:

Pigeons are in your backyard, front yard, lawns, society, lanes, everywhere in short! They fly around all the areas and it is very natural for them to be succumbed by predators, window strikes, illnesses and accidents. There is huge possibility that the pigeons can die in the premises of your property. We can understand that its nor a healthy sight neither exciting task to remove them but unfortunately you would have to do it. This post is to guide as to how can you find and remove a dead pigeon.

Finding a dead pigeon

The dead body of pigeons emit a strong foul smell and if they are frequent visitors in your property then this strong smell points towards only one thing! The location of body of pigeon provides a clue towards the cause of death of the bird. However, if somehow for any reason you don't sense the foul smell but notice some insects and parasites around some area of your home then that can be other indicator. Pigeons dead body don't smell instantly and if they have died say in your terrace area then you may not get the smell quickly. In such cases, if you see a long string of insects going towards one direction then that serves as an indicator.

Also, if pigeons visit frequently but you suddenly notice decrease in their visits then it could be because of dead body. Pigeons fall under that category of birds which always stay in a group and thus if one of them dies at a place where they visit frequently, they don't prefer visiting that place specially if it still has unattended dead body. So, if you notice a fall in their visits without taking any preventive measures then this could be one of the indicators!

Removing the bird

The idea of coming across a dead bird and removing its body itself makes you feel awful. But if the body stays unlocated or left unchecked then it can have fatal repercussions. Hence, it is necessary to find and dispose it off in a right manner. Here are few suggestions to help you with the same.

1. Cover yourself: You should ensure that you are not making any contact with the body. Wear proper gloves preferable disposable while dealing with this. The pigeon's dead body might have infection which can be transmitted very easily into humans. Hence ensuring adequate protection is necessary.
2. Put soil and use decent tools: Not everyone is comfortable in picking up the pigeon with covered hands, it is not healthy also. Put some soil on the dead body as it will ease the process of picking them up and will also decrease the insects hovering around the body. You can use a rake or smaller shovel to pick the body.
3. Covering the bird: Make sure you wrap the bird properly in a plastic bag or multiple layers of newspaper before disposing such that their body is not visible to predators.
4. Clean up: Clean the area and your hands and tools properly. Sterilize everything so that bacteria don't set in after removal.

Tuckahoe Wildlife Tip #2:

Virginia Wildlife Information:

Virginia State bird: Northern cardinal
State mammal: Virginia big-eared bat
State fish: Brook trout, striped bass
State insect: Tiger swallowtail butterfly

Virginia is attached to the Chesapeake Bay, and because of this, it has a large coastal plain that extends inland, passing the bay's tributaries and eventually ending at the swelling of rocky foothills. Those foothills spread into the Blue Ridge Mountains, an extension of the Appalachian range. The state has an abundance of carbonated rock which has led to the creation of thousands of cave systems. Ten of those systems are currently open to the public, leaving about 3,990 on private land or currently uncharted. Along with the caves comes a variety of bat species, including the big brown bat, Brazilian free-tailed bat, eastern red bat, evening bat, gray bat, and the hoary bat, to name a few. Caves are the perfect habitat for these animals, which can either migrate or hibernate in the colder months. While Virginia is not prone to particularly harsh winters, the cave systems make a good, temperature-controlled place for hibernation.

Bats, though numerous, are only a small portion of the animal population in Virginia. The state has a number of predators including black bears, bobcats, cougars, and coyotes. This state doesn't have huge issues with the larger predators mainly because of how mountainous and wild the habitat has remained. The coastal plain is much more covered in people's homes, and this is where critters like squirrels and raccoons love to play. Because of the amount of trees in this state, it doesn't take long for a vertical-loving animal to find a way into a house. While raccoons and squirrels are definitely on the list of nuisance animals, they are among a score of others including woodchucks, skunks, porcupines, and opossums.

The state is also perfect for birds, and Virginia has a population of golden eagles, a large avian that tends to live in isolated settings across the globe. Not much research has been done on the golden eagle, and Virginia wildlife authorities hope they can study the growing population and shed some light on the species.

The fresh water feeding into the Chesapeake Bay provides a good ecosystem for amphibians and reptiles, and Virginia has a number of water-loving snakes including the cottonmouth and the common water snake. The state also has glass lizards, a snake-like creature, and the only limbless lizard in the United States.
