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.
