Why is our company the best?
Each of our 300+ field operators does a complete job, from start to finish. We remove wildlife humanely and effectively, using the proper traps, tools, and techniques for each unique animal and situation.
When we encounter animals inside a house, we inspect every part of the house, from ground level to every part of the roof, to identify all the areas of entry, and all vulnerable
areas, and we perform professional repairs, with guarantee, to seal entry holes shut. We inspect inside the attic to find any damage or biohazard, and provide full cleaning services. We offer attic decontamination, poison-free and permanent rodent control,
bat colony exclusion, bird prevention, snake removal, dead animal removal and odor control, and more.
Wildlife removal is not a simple task. Each of the field operators in our 300+ branches have received extensive and continuing education on the proper techniques and tools for removing unwanted nuisance wildlife from homes and property.
Most of our branches have 5+ years of experience, in many cases 20+ years. Due to the complexities of the job, the dangers of dealing with wildlife and diseases, and the laws for dealing with wildlife in each US state, wildlife removal is rarely a do-it-yourself type job. Each
animal is different, and each situation is different. Most of our field technicians do not become proficient in their work until they have completed years of field work and hundreds of cases. Experience matters a great deal.

Even where snake bites are rare, they still do occur and so it is important to know what should be done once someone has been bitten. Snake bites are events that are frightening and evoke the strongest of emotions in the victims and doctors. However, advances have been made so as to treat the bites by use of anti-venom methods.
Before getting to hospital
If you or someone else has been bitten by a snake, the first thing to do is to get away from the snakes as to avoid yet another bite. Capturing the snake is out of question. This isn’t necessary since you may get even more bites if you attempt to do it. Stay as calm as you possibly can as you make some arrangements to get medical assistance.
Suction and incision are outdated measures. Immersing the bite in ice, electric shock and applying tourniquet have no value and sometimes they can pose more danger to the victim. It is important that the body part that has been bitten be kept in a position which is neutral or below the heart level. Any clothing or jewelry which is constricting needs to be removed so as to prevent any kind of swelling.
Usually, the first responders focus of supporting the airways of the victim, breathing and also circulations. An IV catheter is usually used as the patient is being transported to a health facility. It is very important that you as fast as you can and get help.
There are two main goals when it comes to the handling of the victims. These are the first aid ABCs and the administration of the anti-venom whenever it is needed.
