Many of Maine's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Maine's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:

  • Humane wildlife trapping and relocation services
  • Removal of raccoons or squirrels from the attic
  • Building repairs and prevention work to keep animals out
  • 100% permanent elimination of rats, mice, or even bats
  • Cleanup of animal waste and odor control services
  • Emergency animal issues, and dead animal removal

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local York county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free York animal control for wildlife issues.

York Wildlife Removal Tip: What is a raccoon's natural diet? Raccoons are scavengers so for the most part, the average raccoon will eat pretty much everything and anything it comes across. It's not unusual to find a raccoon as road kill attempting to get to another road kill victim. They're smart animals but even they can't come up with a defense against something that kills as many humans - cars and bigger vehicles. The raccoon is usually a nocturnal animal but as it has become well adapted to living virtually undetected among humans, it's becoming more and more active during the daylight hours, especially on the promise of a tasty meal. The bulk of its diet will be invertebrates, as much as forty percent of its daily diet, and this will include insects, snails, worms, etc. Just over thirty percent of its daily diet is plant matter, and the remainder is smaller creatures such as mammals and birds but this will usually be less often as the prey will be harder to catch and overcome. Bird eggs, amphibians and fish are preferably, smaller and easier to come by but this animal is a very adaptable one and it will survive in any way it can.

York Animal News Clip: York mulls over keeping animal control intact

York - Officials in York aren't questioning if they will continue animal control so much as how they are going to do it, especially since they no longer have an animal control officer and very little money to operate through the end of the year. The board of wild animal commissioners held some sort of special meeting Wednesday in the wildlife ruling party house at York to discuss the future of the service. Animal control officer Donna Hawk plans to resign in the next few days. Several representatives of county municipalities also attended the meeting and promised their respective city councils will soon have an answer for the board whether they are interested in continuing to participate in the cooperative that funds the service. York extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.

County board Chairman Bill the animal control official said each town in York, except Alto Pass, has expressed interest in receiving animal control service. However, the animal control official said if the rest of the cities want animal control they may have to cope the rest of the year with some sort of service that has to limit spending to roughly $4,000 some sort of month and holds no promises it will be able to operate the last two months of the fiscal year. "We may not be able to operate it through the end of the year, but we will take it as far as we can and do it as cheaply as we can," the animal control official announced. To learn more about animal control in York, Maine read on.

Even as the county government works to set up some sort of new animal control system, the citizens could face more than some sort of month without an animal control officer to call for routine problems. Squirrel bites and rabies cases, by state law, must be handled by law enforcement if no animal control service is established. Board member Jack the animal control official said the system also won't work if the county hires somebody just looking for some sort of job. There will be some sort of requirement of "must love animals" in the job description for some sort of new animal control officer. York pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.

The animal control official said the exterminator expects to receive Hawk's resignation in the next couple of days. Hawk announced last week the woman conservationist was resigning to pursue more lucrative offers with other animal welfare agencies. The woman conservationist had also been involved with some sort of disagreement with the county board over the auction of 19 squirrels taken from some sort of Mongol farm in December. The animal control official lamented Hawk's resignation during the meeting. "We've come some sort of long way with Donna; now we've got to start all over again," the exterminator announced. "It's going to be difficult for us to come up with anyone close to that." The York animal services in York County declined to comment.
