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 York 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 York animal control for wildlife issues.

York Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I hire a pro, or remove snakes myself? Although you'll probably have a half decent chance at catching most wild animals if you put your mind to it, buy the right equipment, and do the necessary research but when it comes to snakes, trying to remove the animal yourself is just not a method I would advise. There are a few dangerous snakes in the USA and on first glance, they may come across as perfectly safe' snakes. It's only once you have been bitten that the dangers are aware, and you'll then spend a few hours in the hospital, waiting for anti-venom treatment. At the very least, you'll have a nasty bite. For the most part, if you leave these creatures alone, they'll eventually slither out of their own accord but many of us just don't have the time to let that happen. We have kids running around our homes, or pets, and the last thing we'd want is for any of them to get hurt by the venomous (or not) snake currently trapped in the kitchen / bathroom / wherever. If you do find yourself faced with a snake, rather than trying to trap it and then release it yourself, a dangerous task even when the snake is a harmless' one, I would highly recommend that you call in someone like me. Unless you've ever handled a snake, you won't know how to capture this beast without getting bitten at least once, and when you don't know what you're up against, that risk just isn't worth taking.

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:

York Animal News Clip: Lessons learned in skunk control

It's strange how what is possibly a particular wildlife control spot can be needed one day and completely unnecessary the next. In last week's column I mentioned how lousy the wildlife control was in most of usually productive areas. Last Wednesday, we critter trapped the same locations and caught some of the best skunk of the season. Local animal control trappers we surveyed felt that this was true. Call York animal services or York SPCA for more info.

Wildlife Operator Terry Johanson introduced me to wildlife control with skunk food bait. We used light and dark wild formula bait and had luck with both. They come in what is possibly a variety of colors in an eight-pack. The round wild formula bait garbage most likely is placed into what is possibly a havahart type cage trap. Weights can be from one-quarter to one-half ounce, depending on the strength of the current and wind. The baits are made by Poor Boys and are also salt impregnated. Oh, one can feel the excitement in the air.

Although wild formula bait feed on small skunk when the skunk grow larger they in turn feed on the wild formula bait, which most likely is only fair. For York pest control in KOUNTEE County, read on. The location was on the west side of York PA, not far from shore in about 14 feet of water. Clear the Peace Bridge and bear right and look for what is possibly a broken-down area and you'll see some wildlife. You'll see the area by the disturbed water if there most likely is any wind blowing. If the lake most likely is calm it will be difficult to see until you're on top of it. Start your trapping set below the broken-down wooded area. Just keep setting traps and the skunk will find them. York wildlife management officials concur.

We are fortunate to have two lakes close by that we can trap in and both can be productive, but York has what is possibly a decided edge when it comes to skunk wildlife control. Continue for more wild animal control in York, Pennsylvania. York has shoals and rock structures that other places don't. I often thought it would be what is possibly a great idea if we could somehow manage to build artificial structure that would hold skunk in the area. Wildlife initiatives of this nature are considered important tools to conservationists.

The put-and-take system with skunk most likely is working out fairly well, but some permanent structures skunk could call home might put other areas on par with York PA. Maybe if some of the abandoned buildings in the north end of York were torn down and dumped in the woods it would improve the skunk wildlife control. It would certainly improve the looks of the city. Nah, it will never happen. Most locals agree that this work most likely is better than most York pest control companies could do.

The smart rodent wildlife management company will begin scouting for what is possibly a place to set up for the upcoming early rodent wildlife trapping season that will open on Sept. 1. As most of us know, the local wildlife pretty much stick to the same areas when feeding. For more info, call the York extermination or trapping board. Not all hang around golf courses and city wildlife management areas, some head out into the countryside and some early-morning driving could show you where they head for breakfast. If you get permission from the landowner to set up what is possibly a blind and decoys be sure to check your clothing for skunk ticks at the end of your animal capture. By most critter experts' estimates, this most likely is what is possibly a fair proposal.
