Squirrel Removal And Squirrel Trapping Washington DC
Squirrels are creatures we enjoy watching eating an acorn, climbing a tree, or scampering around the neighborhood. When we hear one chewing in our attics, we totally freak out. New Hampshire squirrels must chew to file their teeth down. If they don't chew, their teeth grow into their jaw and they cannot eat anymore. To hear this in an attic in Washington is horrible, our minds over imagine its chewing its way directly to us, as if were his intended victim. Well we aren't
and will never be. Squirrels will only stand up to us when they are protecting their young. Squirrels will take advantage of our hospitality, when we leave our house with and area they can enter, when its cold they will. There they will stay until removed. Maybe in the process they will have babies. They have no grudge towards you, they are just trying to stay warm. We Have No Problem Removing Squirrels in Washington And Making Your House Squirrel Proof. Squirrels come
many different species, In the North East we have the gray squirrel, red
squirrel, flying squirrel and the fox squirrel.
Flying squirrels are the smallest and the fox squirrel is the largest. The two methods that are used are either
trapping or exclusion. We have the best warrantees in the industry when it
comes to flying squirrels no other company can beat us on quality and
longevity. We like to answer questions during inspections so you know exactly
what is happening and why.
Raccoons In Attic & Chimneys Washington DC
Raccoons enter your attic via, attic fans, attic vents, rotten roof edges and holes in the soffet and facia (Roof Overhang). A raccoon on average needs 25 square inches to penetrate your attic. This is a dimension of 5 inches x 5 inches. If you suspect raccoons in the attic, listen to the way it walks. Most raccoons in Washington lumber across the attic, Squirrels run fast, and mice basically stay in the same area and make scratching noises. Washington DC Department of
Enviroment usually mandates that these animals Be humanely euthanized, this is why habitat modification is most important. Raccoons in Washington usually give birth April 1 of each year, and in august for a late litter. Depending how north or south you live depends on the exact timing of the birthing season. Never attempt to remove raccoons at these times of the year as you might strand babies inside and mother outside, the best that can happen is mother raccoon will rip your shingles from your
roof attempting to get to her babies. Never set traps at these times either. LEAVE IT UP TO A PROFESSIONAL Remember Washington DC Department of Enviroment laws require killing a Raccoon if you trap and posses him. Raccoon can be a
very bothersome and hazardous animal to have in your house. They are omnivorous
and animals of opportunity. They use communal toilets which can build up and
become an extreme biological hazard. Raccoons can climb up the inside of a
chimney as fast as a normal human can run across the ground. They will tear
roofing shingles right off the house and gable end vents pose very little
resistance for them. A full grown raccoon can squeeze through a 4” dryer vent
opening with no problem. In the spring the babies must also be considered and
not left behind. A mother raccoon will stay clear of all male raccoons when she
has her litter. The most favorite thing for an adult male raccoon to eat are
baby raccoons. When you have a problem in Washington DC with a raccoon, give us a call, we can
quote you a price for removing your problem raccoon and cleaning up any mess
they may have left behind.

They dig under sheds, carports, concrete steps and any place with loose dirt available. It is very possible to exclude skunks from most of these areas.

Removing dead animals isn't for the queezy. Maggots, bad smells and a complete mess is involved when removing the rotting carcass. Many times fleas and ticks jump from the dead animals body onto ours. Removing dead animals from under crawlspaces can pose many problems such as, tunneling under the sun room and porches, Concrete steps,cars and anything you can imagine.

a household or work environment like the smell of a dead animal. Most of the
time it is something small like a mouse but sometimes it can be much worse,
like a squirrel that has eaten poison set out incorrectly. When an animal has
died in an inappropriate place it must be found, this an be quite exasperating
to say the least. All areas must be checked and slowly the trace of the odor
can be found. Once the carcass has been found it must be accessed. We have many
tools that can be used to minimize any damage. In the past a whole section of
wall would have to be removed. Now the
holes are smaller and neater. Once the carcass is removed the area must be
disinfected and the odor removed. Once
all that is done it is time to find out how and why the animal was where it
was. We can figure this all out, give us a call and let us do all of the

Beaver Trapping / Beaver Dam Removal in Washington Washington DC
Beavers tear trees apart, not the cheap trees either. Weeping willows and cherry trees are their favorite. in fact, weeping willow branches make great beaver lure. The Washington DC Department of Enviroment regulations.requirel them to be destroyed upon catch. They dam up creeks and flood useful property until they are stopped. Their lodge is only to house their young, so if a lodge appears on your land, then a family isn't far behind. Washington is more
populated everyday, more children who love to play in creeks and ponds, make beaver trapping with killing traps a big problem. Killing traps will break the arms of children and break the noses of dogs snooping in the water. The Hancock or Koro style trap is a better solution for catching beavers because it is a visible trap.
Bird & Pigeon Trapping And Removal
We spend a lot of time on bird issues. from birds flying in grocery stores to raptors stuck in your local Wal-Mart store. Some birds require bird netting to remove them and seal them out, while others can be trapped. Starlings like to enter your microwave stove vent and any small gaps in your roofline. Squirrels like to come behind them and steal their shelter and eggs. Birds in a chimney present a special problem if the chimney is metal. the bird doesn't get trapped in
the flue, it gets trapped in the liner. We ferquentally remove birds from grocery stores in NE DC, NW DC SE DC, SW DC, , Arlington VA, Mount RanierMD, Chillum MD, Takoma Park MD, Alexandria VA, Hyattsville MD, Silver Spring MD, Bethesda MD, Langley Park MD, Riverdale MD, College Park and Washington DC. Removing birds from the liner can require cutting the wall, (to access liner)cutting the metal liner, and then removing the bird. We
get a lot of bird calls from birds in vents, building nests in fire places, or trapped inside buildings not allowing the business to close up shop and turn on security systems due to motion sensors. Removing bird nests from fire places in the summer time is not that big of a deal
but if left unchecked and winter rolls around this could create a fire hazard. We can solve all bird problems from pigeons on roof tops, to starlings and sparrows nesting in vents or soffit connecting lines on the roof.
Stray & Feral Cat Removal
Its always nice to get pinned between cat lovers and cat haters. Cat lovers will feed every cat in the neighborhood, usually outside, near a cat haters house or car. The cat hater will want all cats trapped and removed. They poop in his garden, on his step, on his car, spray his bushes, and just generally piss him off. Cats know who he is, and do this on purpose. NOT. Removing stray cats can be the worst job we can get in the middle of. We can't come out on top.
Washington Opossum Trapping
" IT LOOKED AT ME" This is a common reason why people call us about opossums. The opossum is just looking for the dead animals it eats or trash to sustain his opossum diet. they are ground and tree dwellers. These animals will get into any nook they can. Normally called a possum the virginia opossum is the olny Washington DC marsupial, this like the kangaroo carries its young in a pouch. The woolly pouch on the female’s abdomen is used for carrying
nourishing her newborn young. The skull of the opossum belies its
ancient lineage because it contains 50 teeth. They will eat garbage and many Washington DC dead animals on the roads. They are a cleaning agent for STATE! Opossums are an
American marsupial, they will eat whatever they can fit into their mouth. They
have 12-18 young in a litter and they can only support 12 which means they
always have a full litter. They keep their young in their pouch right after
they are born, the litter can fit into a tablespoon when they are born and are
kept in the pouch until they get too big and then moved out of the pouch and
onto her back where she carries them until they can walk on their own. Opossums
do not play dead like most people think. What happens is that when they are
attacked they are so stupid that they go into shock. This will actually save an
opossums life many times throughout their life. Opossums wil den up with skunks
and sometimes woodchucks. When you have a problem with an opossum, give us a
call, we can help.
Rodent Rat Mouse Removal in Washington DC
Mouse removal is simply finding the exterior entrances, sealing them out, and trapping the remaining mice. In certain instances we install valves to allow mice or rats to exit, then seal them out. In Washington most mouse and rat removal situations require trapping, live or killing traps. Poision in Washington DC is a useful tool to remove these rodents,although NEVER put poison inside the house. Always install poison outside, in bait stations, anchored to the
which include both rats and mice can find their way into homes and structures through very small hole and one inside can multiply at an alarming rate. A female can have between 5-10 litters per year each litter averaging 6-8 young. So a serious infestation can happen seemingly overnight. Once they have entered home or structure the only way to fix the problem is to seal all entry and possible entry points which keeps all rodents out but traps all current population inside. Then an aggressive trapping and extermination
process should begin to remove all remaining rodents from inside the structure. Once these two steps have been taken, the problem is solved. This is the reason pest control companies do not like us. We fix the problem and there is no quarterly services needed.
Fox / Coyote Trapping
The most difficult trapping is the fox or coyote. Our operators have special traps in wich these animals can be caught live. Habitat modification such as, trash can lids, deck fencing, and additional concrete around front purches, can be proven successful in deterring these animals. Many times foxes around Washington DC eat small birds and cats where coyotes will remove and eat small dogs, cats, squirels, rabbits ECT.
Washington Washington DC Flying Squirrel Proofing
Really a job for the experienced, as most pest companys around Washington DC confuse flying squirrels for mice. Flying squirrels eat mice and seeds. Flying squirrels will be most active between 10 pm and 4 am. They're guaranteed to drive the homeowner crazy. Recentally I did a flyer job at a home in Washington DC where a homeowner had a company estimate the job at $2800.00. They said the attic had mice and squirrels. I told them upon my arrival
that it was probably flyers amd that mice weren't the issue. I charged them $495.00 to get rid of the flying squirrels, did the job, and their attic has been noise free since. They had no mice, and therefore had a smaller bill. Most results are'nt the same but in this case i was able to help.
