Wildlife Removal & Control Company

Northern VA, MD & Eastern WV.

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 Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia. These pests 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, removal – extermination is a job best left to a professional, licensed company.  Environmental Pest Control is no stranger to wildlife in the Mid-Atlantic.  We have helped thousands of home owners by removing and sealing up their homes from future intrusions.

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. Squirrels in the attic (raccoons, mice, and bats too!).  This may be the most popular issue of all.  Cooler weather will force 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.  Check out the FAQ section below on our step by step process for how we fix these delicate situations.

Wildlife Removal FAQs

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.
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.
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.
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.
