Personal Bio – About Me & My Experience In The Wildlife Control Industry
I have owned my own wildlife company in Columbus, OH, for many years. I have so many stories it would be impossible to tell them all on this website. Keeping nuisance animals out of a home became easy for me, but it took a long time to master those skills. I got into the business by training at a young age with my father, who owns a Maine wildlife control company. I realized the potential in an industry that few people mastered, and there were so many people with pest problems.
After years of being involved in the wildlife control field, I have seen the industry grow and my business. When I first started my business in Columbus, the capital of Ohio, I found myself overloaded with work. This workload surprised me because I had 8-10 competing businesses, and five large national chains. There were so many wildlife problems that it didn’t matter how many companies were competing. I would not have succeeded if not for the people who helped me along the way, including my wonderful family.
Wildlife Removal Services In The United States
This wildlife removal website provides detailed information on each particular species and common control tactics nuisance wildlife control companies frequently use. However, the information I write is based on my personal experience. Every nuisance wildlife company has its unique way of dealing with different issues. I try to cover general information on this website relevant to the animal control industry.
I also write about specific control tactics I commonly use in my business. But, the tactics I use may be different from the methods used by the companies listed in Pro Animal Control’s directory. However, each company I recommend goes through a screening process for quality expectations. I also ensure they have all the proper licensing needed to operate their businesses. Contact me today or browse my national directory to find a local wildlife control operator.
Info On Nuisance Species Of Animals & Common Control Methods
Raccoons are one of the more intelligent and more difficult pests to deal with. Although more skill is required to perform a successful bat exclusion, raccoons pose a different problem. When raccoons first invade the attic area of a home, they are very good at gaining access to other parts of the roof. Commonly, they will break through soffit/dormer areas to enter a home. I’ve seen all sorts of entry points, though, where you would be amazed that the raccoons were even able to access them.

Bat removal is a detail-oriented process and must be done by a professional wildlife control technician. The first sign of a bat infestation in the attic is usually finding the bats in the living quarters of a home. When weather patterns change, it can force the bats to seek a warmer / cooler place, driving them down from the attic area and into the house. During the initial bat inspection, the company should look in the attic area for bat waste/guano signs.
Once a company completes an inspection, it should also thoroughly inspect the home’s exterior. The estimated cost for performing a bat exclusion will depend on how many outside areas need sealing, where the main entry/exit points are, and how many and how difficult these spots are to access. Ladders are the most common tool wildlife control technicians use in order to go around the house and do the bat exclusion.
Squirrels are a very destructive wildlife pest. If they are excluded from one area, they will commonly begin to damage another in order to gain access to the attic once again. Squirrels can be relentless at times and it is a must to call a wildlife removal specialist in order to solve the squirrel problem. There are many different species of squirrels including red squirrels, grey squirrels, and flying squirrels. Sometimes wildlife control methods can change depending on the species of nuisance squirrel. For instance, box traps are a common trap for wildlife removal technicians to use when dealing with a squirrel infestation.
Birds commonly infest the attic area of residential properties. They usually can gain access through construction gaps, open vents, and dryer vents. Control and removal of nuisance birds is a job for wildlife professionals. When birds are accessing a particular area, exclusion devices will be put in place so that the birds can fly out of the structure unharmed. Sparrows and pigeons are some of the more common nuisance birds. Great caution must be taken when inspecting the attic areas of a home for a bird infestation.
Skunk removal can be a stinky business, if you know what I mean. People hate having skunks on their property simply because skunks pose too many issues due to their ability to produce horrible odors. Pets getting sprayed by skunks is a typical problem, usually dogs.
If you have skunk problems, put outdoor cat food in a safe place. Skunks love to steal cat food, which makes it a decent bait to use in a trap.
Preventing skunks from digging under a porch or deck can be done using a process known as trenching, which involves putting wire around your deck after you dig a trench around the edges.
The wildlife control industry frequently uses rodenticide bait stations to serve residential homeowners with mouse/rodent control services. Mice and other species of nuisance rodents can find their way into the attic space by climbing the siding of a home, corners, power lines, overhanging trees, and other places to get onto the roof. From there the rodents have no problem finding gaps that lead into the attic. Construction gaps rodents can access are commonly located around dormer areas, drip edges, attic vents, ridge vents, gable ends, and other common areas. Rodent exclusion is necessary to prevent future rodent infestations.
