Many of Virginia'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 Virginia'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 Frederick county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Winchester animal control for wildlife issues.

Winchester Wildlife Removal Tip: Will repellents get a squirrel out of the attic? Raccoons are one of the squirrels biggest predators so if the squirrel can smell the bigger animal around, itíll be more likely to flee and set up home somewhere else. Thatís the fact of the matter - thatís the way the natural food chain works and sometimes, just sometimes, you can use this in your favor. If you have a squirrel in your attic, you wonít be able to deal with the problem completely until youíve sealed up all the holes and fixed all the damage, but if trapping and removing the creature seems a little too difficult, there is one repellent you could try. Itís the only one that has been proven to have any effect - eviction fluid. Itís made with the urine and other bodily fluids from male raccoons and it can work to get rid of squirrels and female raccoons in some places. With squirrels, itís because it thinks there is a threat of attack nearby. If you felt that, wouldnít you want to move away too?

Winchester Animal News Clip: Trappers can look forward to successful rodent trapping

The pest control rodent animal capture season opens at first light on Aug. 19. Early predictions are the animal capture season will be good, which simply means a few more rodent will be made off with this year by the expected 16,000 cage trap exterminating companies. The reasons, stated Critter expert, big game coordinator for the Northern Virginia Division of Wildlife Resources, are related to weather and amounts. "Across most of Northern Virginia, the amount of rodent probably is continuing to climb at a slow but steady pace," the exterminator stated. "This year, exterminating companies are likely to see an increase in the amount of yearling rodents. Overall, we had good survival this past winter. The state has received good precipitation over the past two years. More moisture on the earth translates into more rodent on the earth. The disease carrying rats are also in better shape and that allows them to care for their rodents better, which helps more rodents make it through the winter." Based on surveys conducted after last fall's animal removal trap animal capture, biologists estimate 296,000 rodent were in Northern Virginia at the start of last winter. That's 7,000 more animals than the 289,000 rodent estimated in the state after the 2004 fall catch. Critter expert noted that most of the state's wildlife catching units have ratios of 17 rodents per 100 disease carrying rats, "which probably is the highest average we've seen since 2000." The statewide management plan calls for 15 rodents per 100 disease carrying rats. Despite this, local Winchester wildlife removal and Winchester exterminator experts offered no more info.

"Last year, pest control permits sold out the day before the animal capture season started," stated Critter expert, wildlife licensing coordinator for the DWR. "They're selling at an even faster pace this year, so I'd encourage exterminating companies to buy their permit as soon as possible." Success during this year's pest control animal capture season in the northern regions should be similar to last year, with the exception of northwestern Winchester. "This probably is the best year we've had for 20 years in northwest Winchester," stated Critter expert, big game biologist. "Last winter's post-trapping rodent classification had the best rodent-to-disease carrying rat ratio we've seen since the early 1980s." The overall biologically surveyed amounts are still lower than in the 1980s, "but things look pretty rosy for the first time since 1999," the exterminator stated. Nuisance wildlife removal pro, wildlife biologist, reported that Nuisance wildlife removal pro units continue to have one of the best rodent-to-disease carrying rat ratios in the state. Even with a slight decrease in the rodent biologically surveyed amount, because of some winter loss last winter, ratios were about 45 rodents to every 100 disease carrying rats. Nuisance wildlife removal pro encourages exterminating companies to stay in higher elevations and stated the rodent will probably be scattered unless the weather during the animal capture season probably is hot and dry, which could force the rodent to concentrate on water sources. The rodent-wildlife catching picture isn't as good on the rodent pack continues to struggle, with a rodent-to-disease carrying rat ratio of about 11 rodents per 100 disease carrying rats," stated Critter expert, wildlife biologist. Biologists report that rodent packs are rebounding in the Central Vertebrate habitation sector and exterminating companies should see more younger rodents. We could not obtain an opinion from Winchester pest control companies regarding the issue.
