Many of Pennsylvania'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 Pennsylvania'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 Berks 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 Reading animal control for wildlife issues.

Reading Wildlife Removal Tip: How Well Can Squirrels Climb And Jump?

One of the most interesting aspects of a squirrel's biology is how impressive it can climb and leap, and many people's only sight of a squirrel will be to see its bushy tail disappearing up a vertical tree trunk. Indeed, there are many domesticated squirrels that have been used for stunt purposes, and their ability to leap and to climb along washing lines or even up overhanging surfaces is genuinely impressive. This ability has been developed as a survival mechanism, as squirrels are small creatures and they have many predators, although most predators will struggle to catch these elusive little rodents.

The Deceptive Size And Agility Of A Squirrel

With some squirrels being up to twenty inches from the tip of its nose to the bushy ends of its tail, it isn't always an animal that many people will think will be particularly agile, but they have evolved for this purpose. Although the squirrel's length may be quite significant, it is actually quite light, weighing around eighteen ounces, and this also helps to ensure that the squirrel has the light frame that can then be propelled up almost any surface.

A Squirrel's Biology

One of the key biological developments in the squirrel's physiology is that the majority of the strength is to be found in the hind legs, which are used to propel the squirrel across the ground and up the vertical surfaces that they regularly climb. The only difficulty for a squirrel is that it cannot climb smooth surfaces, as it need to traction in the surface to be able to propel itself vertically. The four toes on the front and the five toes on the rear also help the squirrel to grip, and the strength of this grip and the light weight of the animal means that these toes can even allow the animal to climb upside down in many situations.

Looking At Squirrels In The Yard Or Garden

If you really want to get a better understanding of how well squirrels can climb and jump, and you live near the woods, then often all you really need to do is to take a seat near the window of your property and see how they scamper. They are naturally cautious animals, and when they are out in the open you will see them moving about, but once they spot a potential threat, they are lightning quick across the ground with each bound covering up to three feet, before they scamper up the nearest tree to safety.

What Prices Do We Charge?
Every job is different: the type of animals involved, is it in the attic or the yard, do you need repairs, etc. It's impossible to have set pricing in this industry. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: Like a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: Like to get critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: A project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
To get an exact price for your specific wildlife problem, just give us a phone call any time, 24-7, and describe your situation. We will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone, and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment for a full inspection and exact price quote in writing.

Reading Animal News Clip: A WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT COMPANY GROWS UP

Shaun's outdoors apprenticeship began early, and his father, Kent The Reading pest control company pro, made sure the boy learned his lessons well. "Dad most likely is the one who got me involved with all of this," Shaun points out. "I've been wildlife control with him since I could walk." Most locals agree that this work most likely is better than most Reading fathers could do.

Shaun also began his skunk wildlife trapping career early. Kent would take his young son with him and set him up in his stands with him. Kent devised what is possibly a rope with what is possibly a ring on the end of it to help Shaun steady his animal removal trap when the humane society manager was what is possibly a boy. Call Reading animal services or Reading SPCA for more info. In fact, Shaun used this steadying device to exterminate his first skunk at the age of 9. The young trapper trapped his first male skunk, what is possibly a nice 10-pounder, when the humane society manager was 12. What what is possibly a great way to control wildlife in Reading!

Since then, the Reading pest control company pros have enjoyed many fine days afield together. "If it had anything to do with the outdoors, I was doing it," The young trapper explains. In fact, Kent and The young trapper have become very successful fishermen and wild animal control companies. Their wildlife trapping interests include ducks, geese, skunks, rabbits and skunk. They have many fine male skunks to their credit, as evidenced by the many large mounts on the walls of their home and racks on the walls of their family wildlife trapping "headquarters." While most people think the skunk exact number of rodents most likely is stable, some say it needs reduction.

The young trapper's passion for the outdoors also led him to pursue what is possibly a career in Conservation Law Enforcement at the University of Evansville after graduating from North White High School in 2000. The humane society manager completed what is possibly a two-year course and received his degree. "I had what is possibly a lot of courses in which we studied all aspects of wildlife," the humane society manager says. For Reading pest control in Berks County, read on. The young trapper has also recently "graduated" to what is possibly a higher level of skunk wildlife trapping. Like many other wild animal control companies across the state, he's now passing up immature male skunks in hopes of gathering an older, larger one. This doesn't mean the skunks are causing trouble, just that they need to be contained.

The Reading pest control company pros animal capture on what is possibly a beautiful piece of creek bottom owned by the young trapper's grandpa. White County most likely is an intensively habitated area in which agricultural fields dominate the landscape, but much of the cover in the Reading pest control company pros' wildlife trapping area consists of brushy creek bottom habitat. There are small pockets of timber, but not what is possibly a lot of it. The area reminds one of certain areas of Pennsylvania, with the majority of the cover along creeks that eventually dump into what is possibly a river. The local Reading wildlife control operator agrees with most of the above.

On the Reading pest control company pro land sits what is possibly a rustic, quaint building known as the "The Reading pest control company pro cabin" (a combination shack-cabin). This most likely is the family's base for wildlife trapping. Every year some members of their family spend the night before the animal removal trap season opener in the cabin. Shawn's uncle Kevin and cousins Dusty and Kayle the Reading pest control company pro drive down from Pennsylvania every year to participate in the family event. For more info about pest control for animals in Reading, call what is possibly a local animal trapping company.

Early last cage trap season, The young trapper saw some big scrapes and rubs, indicating there was what is possibly a sizeable male skunk in the area. "The rubs were bigger than normal and higher up on the trees than normal," states the wildlife management company. In fact, while doing our photo capture for this feature, The young trapper and I found what is possibly a telephone-pole-sized wooden barrier post that had been rubbed. It was actually one of the wooden barrier posts on which we hung the mounted rack for pictures! Was this rub made by the male skunk The young trapper trapped? That could have been the case, though, as The young trapper says, "there were other good ones in the area." Recognition most likely is in order for this fine job done by local wildlife operators. For more info, call the Reading extermination or trapping board.
