Professional Rodent Removal

Among the services provided by Wildlife Removal experts of Schenectady, NY include Rat and Mice Removal. These rodents are disease carriers and pose serious risks to health and safety. Worldwide rodents and mice spread over 35 diseases. Rodent-borne diseases are spread directly to humans through bite wounds, consuming food or water that is contaminated with rodent feces, coming in contact with surface water contaminated with rodent urine, or through breathing in germs that may be present in rodent urine or droppings that have been stirred into the air (a process known as “aerosolization”).

Diseases from rodents are also spread indirectly to humans by way of ticks, mites, and fleas that transmit the infection to humans after feeding on infected rodents. Don’t be fooled by these fuzzy little creatures, they can be a deadly threat. Rodents are directly related to spreading Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Hemorrhagic Fever, Lassa Fever, Leptospirosis, Plaque, Rat Bite Fever, Salmonellosis, and Tularemia. Salmonella may also be spread through their droppings. These rodents are very resilient creatures and may live virtually anywhere by scavenging their environment. They may build burrows in your wall; contaminate your food, and belongings.

Rodents pose a serious risk to your New York home by gnawing through electrical wires and causing structural damage. The average lifespan of a rat is between three to five years. The types of rodents found in the United States include the Cotton Rat, Deer Mouse, House Mouse, Norway Rat, Rice Rat, Roof Rat, and White Footed Mouse.

Wildlife Removal professionals are experts in Snake Removal. There are a variety of snakes found in Schenectady, New York some of which are venomous. Snakes play any important role as both predators and preys, they consume other animals which is beneficial in keeping the rodent population down. Snakes are very dangerous and will attack if provoked. Normally snakes will enter your Schenectady home to find a food source, such as mice and rats. A snake can enter any hole that a mouse can squeeze through.

Sealing all crevices and spaces where pipes and electrical wires enter the dwelling will help prevent snakes from making your house their home. This task requires a professional to inspect the property , remove the snake to prevent the snake from being sealed in your New York home.

If you find a snake on your New York property give us a call. We can humanely trap and remove the snake from your Schenectady, NY property.

Squirrel Removal

The most common problem of squirrels is that they will enter the your attic through existing holes or chew their way through weakened areas of roofs, vents, soffets (soffits) to gain access to a warm and safe environment. Once inside they can cause significant damage which include:

  • Damaged and torn smashed insulation.
  • Feces and urine deposits on walls and ceilings.
  • Stains in ceilings from urine and fecal deposits.
  • Strong odors from droppings and soaked or saturated insulation.
  • Damage to electrical wiring creating a serious and dangerous fire hazard (see important fact below).

Eastern Gray Squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis) are medium sized arboreal, or tree squirrels. Their back is grizzled dark to pale gray and may be tinted with reddish coloration on their hips, feet and head. The tail is white to pale gray and as is their stomach. In the north, both their ears and soles of the feet grow heavy fur during winter. Generally, there is no difference between males and females with respect to size or coloration.

They have two breeding seasons per year, and most breeding occurs in December through February and May through June of each year. Females can have up to two litters per year, one from each breeding season. Average litter sizes range from 2 to 4 individuals; the winter squirrel litter is generally smaller than the summer squirrel litter. Both squirrel sexes remain reproductively active throughout their lives which can be between 4-7 years, Squirrels can live in the Schenectady environment for up to 12 years.

The squirrel is an easily adaptable animal that quickly conforms to whatever situation confronts him. The secret to his survival is how quickly he learns the ropes around the neighborhood. If there is no food available the squirrel will travel for miles to find it then set up his home nearby. A squirrels home which is referred to as a "drey," is usually built in trees that have den holes or are constructed from tree limbs and dried leaves. These are the big leaf balls you see in the neighborhood trees around your home, but if no trees are available the squirrel will build it in the next best thing – YOUR ATTIC!

The squirrel is one of New York's most common wildlife pests, and if you hear “noises” in your attic odds are you have an uninvited guest named “squirrel.” The most common noise complaints associated with squirrels in the attic is folks hearing lots of "scratching," this could be a sign that a female squirrel is preparing to have her young.

This situation should be addresses immediately before the young are old enough to cause damage to your homes wiring.

Important Fact: It is estimated that more than 40,000 incidents of house fires annually are caused by faulty electrical wiring. As such, it is the leading cause of fire-related casualties, claiming about 500 lives with property losses estimated at over $500 million annually. Out of these 40,000 fires it’s believed that 40% are caused by rodents chewing on wiring. Don’t delay, give us a call the minute you hear Mr. Squirrel in your attic.

Raccoon Removal

In the spring hundreds of female raccoons find their way into attics, crawl spaces and basements as well as chimneys in search of a safe place to have their young. The usual time for liter births is late March into early April. Raccoons are very strong and can break louvers from gable vents, tear shingles off of a roof, and dismantle faulty chimney caps or tear of chimney screens. Once inside, raccoons will create a nesting area and designate a spot to be their toilet. This can cause a terrible odor and as it soaks into the insulation, sheetrock or ceiling tiles can cause damage or stains.

Raccoons are destructive by nature and will tear apart insulation and wiring as well as rip shingles from the roof for no apparent reason. Raccoons are very dangerous animals to have living in your attic, chimney or any other place for a number of reasons.

Indications and Symptoms of a Raccoon Problem:

  • Loud thumping sounds in the attic area at night.
  • Juvenile raccoons make loud chattering sounds.
  • Scratching, loud noises or chirping from your fireplace.
  • Large holes in the roof of your home.
  • A musty urine smell (raccoon Fecal).
  • Raccoon sightings on or near your property.
  • “Running” sounds in the attic, during the day.

Bat Removal

Whatever the animal or pest may be the only way to getting rid of the problem is to trap the nuisance and remove them from the location. Whether it's squirrels, raccoons, groundhogs, skunks, snakes, rats, mice or bats, simply blocking the entry point will simply not solve the problem. You’re wildlife nuisance will just remove the blockage and push it to the side and enter the space again.

We use the most humane methods to trap nuisance animals, or critters and remove them from the property. We then secure the entry spot or holes to insure that the animals or animal do not return and do not gain reentry to your homes attic or crawlspace.

The fact is that except in those cases where you simply left a window or door open and animals got into your home, every structural animal trapping job is going to require some type of animal damage repair or exclusion to prevent animals from gaining or regaining entry into your home. In the wild animal removal profession, we have a name for repairs or modifications made specifically to keep wild animals out of your home or property. We call this work Wildlife Exclusion, and getting it done right the first time can make all the difference in preventing reentry and damage by nuisance animals such as raccoons, rodents, bats, birds, squirrels and other nuisance wildlife that make your house their home.
