Animals in Attics - This is the most common job that we deal with. If you hear running and scratching noises in your attic, give us a call! We will determine the type of wildlife, from squirrels to coons, and take the appropriate steps to remove all of the critters, and make sure your problem is solved permanently.
Humane Wildlife Trapping - We know that critters can cause all sorts of trouble. From raccoons tipping over the garbage to skunks spraying under your shed, we are experts at wildlife trapping. We use humane live cage traps, remove all animals same day, and relocate them at least 15 miles from the capture site.
Prevention & Exclusion Repairs - Once we get all of the animals out of your house, the only way to solve a future problem permanently is to find and completely seal shut all of the areas of entry. Our exclusion repairs are of the highest quality, usually with steel, and come with a written guarantee!
Attic Cleanup Services - The critters living in your home and attic caused more than noise.  They also likely caused attic damage, and left behind contaminants - droppings and urine.  Animal waste can carry diseases that pets and humans can catch, and the scent can lure in new critters.  We clean it 100%.
Dead Animal Removal - If you have a terrible odor in your house or building, there's a good chance that it's due to a dead New York animal rotting somewhere in the attic or walls.  We are experts at finding and removing dead animal carcasses, and providing full cleanup and odor relief.

Latest Nassau County Wildlife Tip
How to keep raccoons out of my Long Island garden:
Raccoons are nocturnal animals that feed on most of your farm produce that is why it is important to keep them away from your garden. The raccoons mostly target the garden because it is an easy source of food. You will be able to keep raccoons out of your garden if you have the ability of identifying them. The first thing that you will note in the garden is that there will be a lot of holes. Raccoons love digging lawns and they will also mulch in piles because they love insects and if you have any bird feeder around then they will ensure that it is absolutely empty. The moment you identify all the holes, you have to come up with strategies and other techniques that will help you get rid of them before it is too late.

Tips for getting rid of raccoons: Building a fence around the garden, you have to ensure that the fence is well secured so that it can completely keep raccoons out of the garden. Manual fences are not that secure, therefore you will have an upper hand if you decide to use an electric fence. The fence should be deep enough to prevent the raccoons from digging under the fence and sneaking into your garden. Raccoons are very intelligent and they are likely to get past the fence into your garden so you will have to apply a more effective technique. You can opt for the live traps because they will definitely capture the raccoons. All you have to do is to set the traps where there are any slight openings into your garden. You have to use baits in order to speed up the process and always check the live trap from time to time. When the raccoon has been trapped, you can release the animal miles away from your garden so that they will not find their way back to your garden.

You can also raccoons away from your garden by sprinkling wood ash around your plants. They wood ash odor is always disgusting and it will prevent the raccoons from destroying your sweet plants. Blood meal is also a best option because it will definitely scare the raccoons away. You can put lights and loud noise in the garden; the lights are significant during the night because the rays from the lantern will scare the animals away and the loud noise will also prevent them from coming close to your garden. You have to get rid of any food sources that attract the animals towards your garden. The garbage can for instance has to be kept clean when it doesn’t have any garbage. If there is garbage then you have to ensure that it is well sealed with a tight lid.

Last Month's Nassau County Wildlife Control Tip
Should I ever poison a groundhog? The answer is no! Groundhogs, while being somewhat cute and very popular in American movies and culture, can be quite the pests. They are known for digging under structures, tearing up beautiful landscaping, and especially known for destroying gardens. Groundhogs, much like rabbits and squirrels, can breed very quickly in the spring, and if you get one, there are usually more to follow. While putting up better fencing and scaring these creatures out of your yard may help, sometimes they just manage to outsmart you. If you find yourself feeling like Bill Murray in Caddyshack, you have a couple of choices.

If the easiest route is the most desirable, call a professional pest control company. They know all the tricks, they have the right permits, and will have the problem fixed in just a few days, if not less. However, this method is usually a lot more costly, so if the budget is your deciding factor, you may want to consider trapping the groundhog yourself.

Before you just go out a buy a trap though, consider what you are going to do with the animal once you catch it. While some states do have relocation areas for wildlife, most states do not. In fact, most states only allow you to trap and kill an animal, not relocate it. Check with your state’s wildlife and fisheries department to verify your state’s laws. Sometimes, the department will send someone out (like Animal Control) to help you handle the problem.

If you find yourself planting cantaloupe inside a cage over a groundhog hole, it means that you’re prepared to kill the animal you trap. While there are a few options to humanely kill a groundhog, there are also a few options that are not good options. One option that should be entirely off the table is poisoning the groundhog. Although this may seem like the easiest, fastest, and most hands-off way to kill a groundhog, it is actually very dangerous. For one, you have to use a fair amount of poison to kill an animal quickly.

In addition, you can’t guarantee that the animal that crosses your trap is going to be the guilty groundhog. You also run the risk of an animal walking through your cage, trailing the poison out of the cage, and back to their den or around other animals. You would be responsible for the death of other animals that aren’t tearing up your yard. Poison can also seep into the ground if it rains, and is very dangerous to handle. As a good rule of thumb, never use poison to kill a groundhog, there can be irreparable damage.
