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.

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.
