How to Remove Wildlife in
Lincolnia VA
Humanely removing wildlife in 
Lincolnia VA
is a multistep process to ensure the wildlife cannot come back into your home, and to ensure your home is safe. Environmental Pest Control will quickly remove wildlife from your home and make sure they do not come back. All of our wildlife removal services come with a warranty for peace of mind and protection in the future. Here are the steps to getting rid of wildlife.
  • Wildlife Removal – One the initial visit, the first step is to remove the wildlife by installing one way devices in the area(s) the wildlife are currently entering the home. One way devices allow the wildlife to naturally leave the home at dusk, but then do not allow them to re-enter.  Hence the name one way device.  Additionally, fully inspecting and sealing up all other holes on the property is required to ensure the wildlife does not find another access point when they come back to your home at dawn.
  • Clean Up & Disinfection - On a follow up service, the one way device is removed, as the wildlife now has left the premises, and permanently sealed. At this time any wildlife droppings should be cleaned up and the infected area should be treated with disinfectant and odor neutralizer.
  • Insulation Replacement - In most wildlife removal infestation situations, the insulation in the attic may need to be replaced with new insulation to remove the contaminated insulation that has a foul odor and now contains diseases.

What Are Signs of a Wildlife Infestation in
Lincolnia VA
Most wildlife issues start when a homeowner hears scratching or clawing sounds in the walls or attic of their home.  Dusk and dawn are the common times homeowners will hear these sounds when the wildlife are leaving the home and then returning.   Other signs are seeing droppings, smelling a musty odor from urine and droppings.  All of these are signs that something is going on and it’s very important to schedule a free inspection!
What Are Common Wildlife Issues in
Lincolnia VA
  • 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.  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.
  • 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. 
  • Mole tunnels in the yard.  Rural homes and suburban homes alike are susceptible to mole tunnels throughout their yard.  These usually start in March, when the weather warms, and continue until the ground freezes. 
Squirrel in Attic Removal in
Lincolnia VA
Environmental Pest Control is the best squirrel removal company in
Lincolnia VA
to rid your home of squirrels in your attic safely and humanely. Squirrels are active year-round in the Mid-Atlantic area. They will happily set-up residence in your home’s attic or crawlspace squeezing – or chewing – through holes as small as 2 inches. Squirrels can do extensive damage to wiring, wood, soffits and insulation. Their urine and feces are full of dangerous parasites and salmonella. When squirrels live in your attic for a prolonged period of time, insulation removal & installation service and disinfecting service is almost always required. If they die in your house, they will attract a host of other pests. Squirrel control, removal – extermination is a job best left to a professional company.

Lincolnia VA
that will humanely remove bats from your attic, clean up bat guano, disinfect your attic, and finally seal up your attic so bats will not reenter.  Bats are highly beneficial to the ecosystem.  They are nature’s insect control.  Did you know that a bat can eat up to 1,000 mosquitoes per hour!  However, bats can gain access anywhere there is a 3/8” gap!   When bats roost in your attic, eaves and chimney, it creates a dangerous situation because their guano (bat poop) is toxic.  Also, bat urine smells like a strong musty ammonia smell and can become off-putting, especially in the hot summer months when the smell is most potent.  Removing bats from your is very difficult and dangerous. Specialized protective equipment and trapping devices are needed. Do it yourself (DIY) measures such as fragrances and sound and motion alarms simply do not work. Additionally, it is ILLEGAL to kill bats because they are protected.  Let Environmental Pest Control solve your bat issue today!

Wildlife Removal FAQ's

What areas do you service?

Please Click Here to see our entire MD, VA, and WV coverage areas.

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.

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.
