The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) emphasizes that individuals may believe it is rare to come across a wild animal inside their residences.

Still, the number of such encounters has increased due to urbanization in the natural habitats of animals. Spotting a squirrel on your window or in the yard is upsetting, although looking at the same in the woods is exciting. It is a fact that wildlife nuisance is on the rise in NYC, with several animals scurrying through the yards, lawns, and parks. Therefore, do not be surprised if you see some around your home or office but be alert, as they can come inside at any time.

What Wildlife Can Do

Once spotted, wild animals can be detrimental inside your home or office, generating stinking smells and stains, chewing wires, and spreading other pests and diseases. They are carriers of parasites such as fleas, ticks, and bed bugs whose bite is perhaps the most unwanted thing for your family or staff. All these parasites tend to feast on the blood of humans. Therefore, it is wise to disallow the spread of animal problems into a different pest infestation.

What You Should Not Do

When it is a matter of wildlife, you should never attempt to get rid of them on your own, may it be a home or office, or may it be small or big creatures. This is because even small ones can bite or harm you. These bites are not so light; they can be infected easily. Therefore, a professional treatment is essential. This ensures safe and humanely catch for relocating the creatures far from your home. This is exactly where our wildlife control NYC experts specialize.

Professional Solution

Our wildlife removal and exclusion services focus mostly on removal practices in up to 90% of cases. Simply put, we prefer preventing wild animals from entering your living or working premises by sealing their potential access or entry points. We use only high-quality traps and materials for the same.

To prevent their coming back, our wildlife control NYC experts ensure that all building surroundings are secured, especially where the active entry points are. We use sheet metal or rust-resistant 16 gauge steel screening for fastening securely with screws. Similarly, sealants such as steel wool are used for other spots so that animals do not penetrate via the points.

We offer customized solutions for wild animals, including but not limited to bats, roof rats, raccoons, squirrels, possums, flying squirrels, Norway rats, snakes, bats, skunks, and armadillos.

We also offer treatments for animals that have died in your office, factory, or home. In that case, we first work by locating the place of the incident and removing the dead animal, may it be any species. After spotting, we use a biodegradable deodorizer or atomizer of industrial strength, which is applied to former dwelling spaces, entry points, and travel lines. Doing so discards the animal’s scent and prevents other wild animals from entering and dying.

However, all our practices will be as per the NYC regulations.
