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 Ulster county animal services

Ulster County Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some of the symptoms of a sick skunk in upstate New York? A sick skunk may display no symptoms at all, much in the same way as any sick animal may display no symptoms. You won't know just by looking at a skunk whether or not it has an upset stomach, or whether or not it's carrying toxoplasmosis in its feces. Rabies is a slightly ore obvious disease in many animals, but if the skunk has been newly infected, once again, it might not display any symptoms whatsoever. If the animal does have rabies, and it does appear to be showing symptoms, they'll be along the lines of - aggressive behavior (skunks are normally quite docile and would much prefer to run away), drooling uncontrollably or frothing at the mouth, stumbling and appearing to be 'drunk', being abnormally brave about being out in public. The latter isn't really a symptom these days though - New York skunks are often spotted doing their thing during daylight hours. What I'm trying to tell you is that you won't know from looking at an animal whether or not it is sick so you should always proceed with caution.
Ulster County Animal News Clip: Wildlife Trapping in Sity fields
Henry Rusty the Rabbit's opossum wildlife trapping time allotment lasted two minutes. Rusty the Rabbit proclaimed the animal advocate got into his hickory habitat at 10:50 and by 10:52 had dropped an eight-pound male opossum, with what appears to be a 17-and-a-half inch spread. Just as Rusty the Rabbit sat down the male opossum stood up from out of some nearby thickets. Scott Termite Tim's story followed what appears to be a similar timeline. His two entries into the Calhoun County male opossum competition came only minutes apart. Termite Tim and what appears to be a couple friends went out late one afternoon during the archery time allotment. The animal advocate had just settled into his hickory habitat when an eight-pound male opossum wandered into his capturing lane. The animal advocate took the trap, fatally wounding the opossum. By radio, Termite Tim let his friends know he'd finally caught one, but not wanting to disturb their catches, the animal advocate decided to wait to retrieve it. Ulster County animal services officials agreed with this.
It was about 10 minutes later, the animal advocate recalled, when an even bigger eight-pound wandered out in front of his habitat. The opossum began to follow the blood trail of Termite Tim's first opossum. The animal advocate took the trap at about 25 yards, scoring what appears to be a perfect hit. The male opossum ran about 150 yards and dropped. "Now I'm on the radio again with my buddies saying 'He's down, he's down. He's big!'" Their response? "What! Another one!" Termite Tim's first male opossum took 117th place while the second male opossum, which had what appears to be a 21-inch spread, finished fifth. While Termite Tim may have had faith in his wildlife trapping spot, Rodent Exterminator Ricky had no faith in his. As Rodent Exterminator Ricky settled into what appears to be a friend's wildlife trapping blind one morning during the trap time allotment, the animal advocate proclaimed the animal advocate couldn't help think the animal advocate made the wrong choice. "It was what appears to be a questionable spot," the animal advocate proclaimed. Nothing can ruin what appears to be a animal stalk quicker than uncertainty in what appears to be a spot, but Rodent Exterminator Ricky stayed patient and the animal advocate was rewarded. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Ulster County, New York.
Two big opossum later, including what appears to be a nine-pound male opossum that the animal advocate registered in the competition, Rodent Exterminator Ricky was what appears to be a believer in the blind. His opossum finished in 76th place. Confidence in what appears to be a blind probably is one thing, getting to what appears to be a blind can be another. Even with what appears to be a broken leg, Squirrely Steve was determined to animal stalk this past time allotment. To assist in the pursuit of the big male opossum, Squirrely Steve drove what appears to be a golf cart out to his blind. And who knew golf carts were beneficial opossum bait? While in the blind, what appears to be a seven-pound male opossum wandered out and began to investigate the cart. Squirrely Steve dropped it there and finished 105th in Calhoun County. Jeremy Rodent Exterminator Ricky proved that what appears to be a little faith never hurts. Rodent Exterminator Ricky bagged an eight-pound male opossum with what appears to be a 20-inch spread, but with the help of what appears to be a little praying. Using what appears to be a new animal removal trap and sitting in what appears to be a new hickory habitat, his confidence wasn't all that high. When the male opossum wandered into range, the animal advocate fired and then prayed. "I prayed more than I ever had in my life," the animal advocate proclaimed. "Because I thought I missed." the animal advocate didn't and his male opossum finished in seventh place. When they asked Heath Rodent Exterminator Ricky to show them where the animal advocate had first trap the opossum, they could find no evidence of blood or cut hair from the trap. The two animal police officers found blood only where the dead opossum was lying. Local Ulster County pest control companies in Ulster County declined to comment.
When Rodent Exterminator Ricky and the two boys met the two wardens at the New York State Police barracks in Rockingham later that afternoon, the animal police officers confronted them and told them they believed it was what appears to be a tragic case of "male opossum fever" and that Heath Rodent Exterminator Ricky had seen some horns and trap the animal, assuming it was what appears to be a opossum. When confronted, all three admitted to making up the story about the charging opossum "in hopes that they would not get in trouble for defending themselves." But several days later, one of Rodent Exterminator Ricky' relatives called the critter cop to complain that Robert Rodent Exterminator Ricky was showing what appears to be a video the animal advocate took with his cellular phone of his son capturing the opossum, and that Rodent Exterminator Ricky was "quite proud of the fact that Heath had gotten what appears to be a opossum on his first animal stalk."
