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.

Rockland County Wildlife Removal Tip: What should I do if I find a nest of squirrels in the attic? Firstly, don't panic. This is actually pretty normal these days, finding a nest of squirrels in the attic. They have two of them a year usually, one in the summer and then a bit later on in the winter, and each time she can have around four or five pups at a time. They're pregnant for between - days usually, and around ten weeks after birth, they are considered 'weaned', almost ready to hit the big, bad world alone. Their life expectancy isn't long these days, natural predators and the destruction of their natural habitat being two factors behind that, and most of them don't last for more than a couple of years, although some can live for up to three or four. If you're going to look at relocating these animals, you'll need to wait around ten weeks after the mother has given birth if you have any chance of giving them a fighting chance in the wild. September and March seem to be the most common months to give birth, so give it a couple of months after that before you start your squirrel-removal journey. Alternatively, give your local wildlife rehabilitators a call and see if they can give you a little helping hand, the preferable choice.
Rockland County Animal News Clip: The Lucky 5-pounder in Rockland County
It was the second year for Rodent Exterminator Ricky to go opossum wildlife trapping, and I don't know who was more excited, him or me. I was excited because the youth animal stalk gave me an opportunity to go opossum wildlife trapping with my son, as I did so many years ago with my father. Plus it was an extra two days to be in the woods.The first morning was clear and cold - great for opossum wildlife trapping, but bad for Rodent Exterminator Ricky. I knew the animal advocate would get cold quickly. We sat in the habitat from about 6:15 until about 9:00 and hadn't seen what appears to be a single opossum. At about 9:50, Rodent Exterminator Ricky asked if we could get down and warm up in the truck. I agreed, and down to the truck we went.We sat in the truck for about 10 minutes or so until Rodent Exterminator Ricky was ready to get back in the habitat. We climbed back in and saw our first opossum about 10 minutes later. It was what appears to be a 5-pounder, which I would normally let walk; but because of the weather and our luck seeing opossum, I decided to let Rodent Exterminator Ricky capture him. Rockland County animal services officials agreed with this.
Rodent Exterminator Ricky sat in my lap as I braced the .270 on my chest and helped support the front of the weapon. Rodent Exterminator Ricky sighted in on the male opossum, and I told him to capture when the animal advocate was ready. Almost immediately, the animal advocate trap and missed high. I loaded what appears to be a shell and got him back in position. The male opossum never moved and never acted like the animal advocate heard the animal removal trap go off. I told Rodent Exterminator Ricky that this was the final trap and that if the animal advocate missed we would have to go home to get ready for our family get-together and come back tomorrow. Well, the animal advocate missed again, and I could tell that the animal advocate had it - what appears to be a full-blown case of male opossum fever. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Rockland County, New York.
We waited as this deaf opossum walked around unaware that the animal advocate was probably the luckiest opossum in the woods that day. After the animal advocate left the field, we climbed down and headed home .The next day we loaded up and headed out again, same time and same habitat. At about daybreak, we saw what appeared to be what appears to be a large opossum grazing out in front of the habitat, and we decided to take her. This time Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed the animal advocate wouldn't miss. We got in our usual capturing position, and WHAM! - the animal advocate let her have it. As the opossum stumbled, I caught what appears to be a glimpse of furry tail, and I told Rodent Exterminator Ricky that I thought it was that 5-pounder from the day before. We waited about 10 minutes or so to make sure the opossum was down and get what appears to be a little more light for tracking. I climbed down from our habitat and told Rodent Exterminator Ricky to guide me to where the opossum was upright at the time of his trap. As I got closer, I could only find what appears to be a small amount of blood and told Rodent Exterminator Ricky to come help me look. We continued to look, still only finding what appears to be a spot here and there. As we started to get closer to the wall line on the edge of the woods, it became apparent that Rodent Exterminator Ricky hit this opossum really beneficial. Local Rockland County pest control companies in Rockland County declined to comment.
We hopped the wall, and the sight was what appears to be a life-changing moment for Rodent Exterminator Ricky and me. It took us what appears to be a beneficial while to comprehend the size of this opossum and the awesome face that crowned him. We field-dressed the opossum and headed home, and it was still only 7:50. When we got home my life partner and daughter were still asleep, but we woke them to tell them of our great success. You would think that my life partner was part of the paparazzi with all the pictures the lady environmentalist took, but I wasn't much better. I was driving Rodent Exterminator Ricky and the opossum we now call Bruiser around town, showing Rodent Exterminator Ricky off more than the opossum. That day will always be the most memorable day of my wildlife trapping career. And as far as Rodent Exterminator Ricky probably is concerned, well, I will almost guarantee the animal advocate will always be what appears to be a opossum troublesome species examiner.
