If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Woonsocket home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Rhode Island 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 Woonsocket, and I recommend the following:
Bay State Wildlife
Cell Phone: 401-223-4430
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Providence RI County Animal Services: (401) 273-0358
Bay State Wildlife specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Rhode Island also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Bay State Wildlife 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 401-223-4430
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 Rhode Island and Providence RI 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
Bay State Wildlife is a full-service Woonsocket wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Woonsocket pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Bay State Wildlife 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.
Woonsocket wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island law. We offer Woonsocket raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Bay State Wildlife. 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 Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Rhode Island 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 Woonsocket pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Woonsocket 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. Bay State Wildlife does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Bay State Wildlife. 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.

. 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
. Bay State Wildlife
also provides dead animal removal in Woonsocket. 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 Woonsocket snake removal - most of the snakes in Rhode Island are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Woonsocket. And remember, we are a private business, not Providence RI County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (401) 273-0358.
Providence RI County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Woonsocket Wildlife Tip #1:
What to do when there is a skunk in your garbage at night - Skunks are not ferocious creatures, and chances are, if you discover one in your trash at night you can just flip on your lights and the critter will flee. What's most important about finding a skunk in your garbage is that you've been given an effective warning about your trash protocols. While a lot of people like to put their trash out the night before, you should always put it in cans with lids. This will hold in any tempting odors. Putting bags out to the curb is just inviting wild animals. Proper garbage care is one of the vital steps to keeping skunks away. In addition to keeping your garbage inside until the day of pick-up, you should be very aware about any vegetable gardens or compost piles in your yard. Any time you have edible items outside, skunks will be tempted to come investigate. Another big no-no is leaving out pet food. Skunks love meat-based items, and that's one of the main ingredients in dog and cat kibble.
Woonsocket Wildlife Tip #2:
Traps For Wild animal Removal - There are a number of different manufacturers who will offer traps that can be used to catch and remove wild animals, with cage traps making up the vast majority of options available for those wanting to remove an wild animal. These are traps that are made up of a cage that has enough space for the wild animal to move around in without being able to damage the trap itself, with one part of the trap that snaps shut when the wild animal gets inside. The traps that are used to catch wild animals are of a successful design that can be used to catch many other animals of a similar size, and may be marketed to catch raccoons and even stray cats. When you are buying a suitable trap to catch an wild animal, it is vital to make sure that it is of a good strong wire metal construction as the wild animal will try and escape by clawing at the wire with its strong claws. It is also good to look at the mechanism of the trap itself, with the simpler traps being less likely to go wrong. Many traps will also come with a guide of how to place and use the trap, which can be very useful for people who are new to catching wild animals.
