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.

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 the county animal services for assistance.

Greene County Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I ever poison a rodent?

Many of us immediately go for the poison when we realize that we have a rodent problem, but are that really the best answer. Rodent poison contains toxic substances like Warfarin. This powerful anticoagulant prevents the blood from clotting. The Warfarin is mixed in to a base that is delicious to the rodents, so even by eating a small amount of it the warfarin is introduced into their bloodstreams. Death is not instant so after the rodents eat the bait they leave the area. Within a day or so, the mice experience severe hemorrhaging and become lethargic, and bleed out.

There are many reasons NOT to use poison for rodent control. Here are just a few

1) A poisoned @ is most often going to die inside your home. It is going to stink, decay, and spread germs. It will also attract bugs and other carrion crawlers.
2) If a poisoned rodent does make it outside, it can be consumed by a predator like a hawk. The predator will then become poisoned from consuming the tainted rodent. At the very least, it will become sick, it could die.
3) The poison could be spread to other areas of your home and find its way into your air vents, food, or water table where it could affect your family.
4) You pets could ingest poison or a poisoned rodent, and die horribly before you even realize they are sick.

If you research or contact an animal removal service, you will find that there are many other ways to handle your rodent problem without resorting to dangerous poisons. There are many styles of traps. Snap traps, "Zap" traps can be used to kill rodents quickly. Live traps and cage traps capture rodents so that they can be dispatched or released afterwards, and exclusion funnels drive the rodents from your home by allowing them to leave but never return. You can also look into DIY home remedies like mothballs or ammonia spread around their nesting are to drive them out, or gadgets like sonic emitters or strobe lights that claim to drive them away by being annoying. If none of these things works for you, enlisting the aid of an animal removal service might be the answer. These professionals have all the technology and equipment they need to combat your rodent problem. They will lay out a plan that works for your specific situation, and make sure that you have the knowledge to prevent a reinfestation. They safety of your home and family is always paramount.
