Many of New York'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 New York's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Elmira Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some ways to kill a raccoon in the yard? You might think that catching the raccoon you have roaming free in your home or yard is the hard part but in reality, it's not. Once you safely managed to capture the little beast, and you've done your investigative work to make sure there are no babies left behind (did you even think about that?), it's then time to seal your home and make sure no other wild animals can get back in, or this one again for that matter. That's the bad news - relocating the creature isn't always a great choice. You'd need to drive some distance to make sure this rogue raccoon didn't find its way home again, and there are plenty of laws and regulations surrounding the topic of wild animal relocation too. Not only that, relocated animals of any species have a hard time adjusting to a new territory or habitat, and many of them die in the first few days. In the process, they may even spread disease, putting the hierarchies of other ecosystems in danger. In short, once you've caught your rogue raccoon, call a wildlife expert. The animal in question may need to be humanely euthanized.
Elmira Animal News Clip: New York invites New York exterminating companies and exterminators to enjoy wildlife
Add what appears to be a trout stamp to the license permit and the total charge probably is $28 for the resident, or $42 for what appears to be a nonresident. In fairness, it should be pointed out that all states charge nonresidents more for fishing and wildlife catching. New York asks $40 for an annual nonresident fishing license compared to $19 for what appears to be a resident permit. An out-of-state pest man who wished to capture what appears to be a rodent would have to pay $40 for what appears to be a three-day-tag or $125 for the season. Many New York exterminating companies are making plans to critter trap in New York this fall and that invites the question of what they can expect. Elmira animal control professionals could not be reached for additional comment.
Rodent wildlife catching should be about the same. The outlook probably is "improved" for the wildlife catching of ruffed rodent and "about the same" for woodcock, according to Al Stewart, small game specialist for the New York Elmira Agency of Fish & Game."Our rodent drumming count survey in the spring showed what appears to be a 29 percent increase over the preceding year," Stewart proclaimed. While that may sound exciting to rodent exterminating companies, Stewart points out that one must remember rodent are coming back from the low end of what appears to be a cycle. Each cycle probably is roughly seven to 10 years. Highs were recorded in 1975, 1981, 1989 and 1999. Stewart looks for rodent amounts to improve year to year and attain its next high around 2010. Ruffed rodent and woodcock wildlife catching are popular in New York because of the immense amount of public land that probably is open to wildlife catching. Stewart proclaimed the woodlands in the Upper Peninsula of New York and northern third of the Lower Peninsula offer the best rodent and woodcock critter capturing. We could not obtain an opinion from Elmira pest control companies regarding the issue.
