Humane Wildlife Removal

Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia

Wildlife too close to your home (or in your home) is a year round problem for homes in the Mid-Atlantic region. It is responsible for millions of dollars of damage throughout Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. If you hear scratching noises in your walls or ceilings, you most likely have a wildlife issue that needs the immediate attention of a wildlife removal professional.

Wild animals have learned that homes in Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia offer great places to live, especially during the winter. Bats, rodents, and squirrels  get into attics of homes through open voids in the home structure and  live and nest in the attic and walls of the home. Other wildlife will dig holes under porches or decks. These wildlife can do extensive damage to wiring, wood, soffit, insulation, as well as create fire hazards. Wildlife also creates health hazards as wildlife urine and feces is full of dangerous parasites and salmonella. Wildlife control and removal is a job best left to a professional, licensed company.  Environmental Pest Control is no stranger to wildlife issues in the Mid-Atlantic.  We have helped thousands of home owners by removing and sealing up their homes from future intrusions. Our dedicated wildlife removal division handles thousands of wildlife issues every year and are  equipped to handle every aspect of wildlife removal process: humane/safe removal, complete seal up of homes exterior, disinfect & sanitization, insulation replacement, and finally a 1 year warranty for peace of mind.
What are common wildlife issues?
  1. Birds in vents.  every April, May, and June, we handle hundreds of bird in vent issues.  A bathroom or dry vent seems to attract birds like a moth to the flame every spring.  The issue here is nests are made in the vents which creates a fire hazard for your home.  We will blow or vacuum out the nest to clean out the vent and then install a bird guard on the vent cover so that the issue never happens again.
  2. Bats, Raccoons, Squirrels in the attic.  This may be the most popular issue of all.  Cooler weather will force bats, raccoons, and squirrels to find a nice warm home…your attic!  Nothing like a heated space with soft insulation to make for a great home.  Common indicators that you may have a problem would be scratching noises at night in the ceiling, any holes or cracks around the exterior roofline of the home, and sometimes even finding some insulation on the ground that come down through a downspout.  Once one of these wildlife animals gets into your attic, they will ruin insulation with their waste, may chew on electrical wires. Bat feces, in particular, is very messy and creates a dangerous contamination issue. In most cases where wildlife animals have been living in the attic for a prolonged period of time, insulation removal & installation service is required. Check out the FAQ section below on our step by step process for how we fix these delicate situations.

Wildlife Removal FAQ's

What areas do you service?

How do I get rid of, remove and keep out wildlife in my attic, walls and eaves?

Each situation is different. The best way depends on where the wildlife is located and if they have young. We will recommend the best combination of controls, deterrents and live trapping. Extermination or dead trapping is a last resort and rarely necessary. If animals are present in attics during our seal up, all holes except for one will be sealed, and a one-way door will be set at the one exit hole. Once all animals exit your home our team will return, verify all squirrels are gone, remove the one-way door and seal up the last hole.

What are the signs of a wildlife infestation in my home?

Seeing wildlife such as squirrels, raccoons, bats on your roof or chimney, hearing scratching or jumping noises in ceilings, walls or attics, seeing holes in eaves, siding, under the soffits or chewed singles, water damage on your ceilings, droppings in your attic, seeing insulation washed down your downspouts. For skunks, opossums, ground hogs you will typically see a borrowed hole under your front porch or decking.

What is your guarantee - warranty?

Most of our jobs include wildlife removal and future prevention. Our prevention includes exclusions/seal ups and carries a one-year written warranty (365 days). If there are any problems we come back – quickly.

If wiring is damaged by squirrels can you repair it? Can you repair soffits, wood, etc.?

Soffits, Wood, Repair:
Environmental Pest Control is not a general contractor. We will seal holes up so that the animals will not return. In the case of large holes, damaged siding, soffits or roof lines we suggest you contact a general contractor for cosmetic repairs. Reminder; most GC’s will not enter an attic with a live animal in it. Prior to any work they require all wildlife must be removed.
Electrical/Wiring Repair:
Environmental Pest Control is not an electrician. If any unsafe electrical conditions are seen during inspection our techs will report it and advise home owner contact an electrician.

How to get rid of bats in your attic? 

Removal of bats in your attic may be one of the more complex problems we encounter in wildlife control. Definitely not a DIY issue if you want to do it right, safely and legally! Bat colonies are protected species and you must not kill them. The solution usually requires installation a one-way door and/or a special netting that lets bats fly out, but not fly back in. But you MUST first determine if there are baby bats present, or you will create a huge problem. Baby bats will not exit on their own. Left stranded they will crawl down your walls, into your house, and die creating a monumental mess, stink and attract more pests. Once you have eliminated any baby bats, the one-way device may be installed. After all bats are removed from your attic, the entry points must be identified and sealed up. Bats can squeeze through small gaps of just 3/8 of an inch. If your seal up is incomplete, you will soon have you bats again.  Finally, the bat poop, guano, should be removed and contaminated insulation replaced (which we do). Guano is dangerous, releasing spores that cause Histoplasmosis a disease of the lungs. Cleanup requires special protective equipment.   CLICK HERE to see a complete list if average pest control prices.
