  • Animals - Common Nuisance Wildlife Species We Handle


Beavers are a problem because they build dams and flood areas. They also cut down trees which you may not wish to have cut. Beaver trapping can be done several different ways, from live traps to lethal means, but it is not work suited for amateurs. Read more about Beaver Removal.


Coyote populations continue to increase in urban areas. Many people fear these animals, believing that they are a threat to pets or children. In addition, coyotes can rummage through garbage, or prey upon farm animals such as chicken coops. Read more about Coyote Removal.


Fox are very common in some areas. They are mostly shy, and stay away from people. However, from time to time there are some conflicts, such as raiding a chicken coop, eating garbage, etc. Some people are concerned about rabies and foxes. Read more about Fox Removal.


North America is home to several species of mole. They all behave roughly the same, and homneowners all tend to have the same complaing. Moles dig subterranean tunnels throughout a yard or lawn, and create mole ridges and dirt mole hills throughout a lawn. This is only a problem if you are trying to maintain nice landscaping. Lethal trapping is the only way to solve a mole problem. Read more about Mole Removal.


Voles, also known as field mice, don't enter your home or attic. So they're not really a big problem. The only problem they seem to cause is that they build surface tunnels in your lawn, and if you want to keep a nice-looking yard and find the tunnels unsightly, you might want these animals removed. Read more about Vole Removal.


These rodents are not as common as eastern gray squirrels, but they also enter and live in the attics of homes. Unlike other squirrels, they are nocturnal, and they live in colonies, some of which can be large. Read more about Flying Squirrel Removal.


The Whitetail Deer is very common in many areas of the US. They are only really a problem for two reasons: they run in front of cars, and they eat vegetation, including landscaping and crops. Read more about Deer Removal.


Chipmunks live in the northeast USA and the midwest. They are mostly cute and harmless, but some people don't like their habit of digging in lawns and burrowing next to houses or under concrete walks, in landscaping, etc. Read more about Chipmunk Removal.


Rabbits aren't rodents, but lagomorphs. They don't dig, they don't break into your attic, they don't threaten your pets or safety. But they do eat vegetation, and they might well destroy your garden. For this reason, some people want to have them trapped and removed. Read more about Rabbit Removal.


Gophers and Prairie Dogs are considered a nuisance first and foremost because they are burrowers, and they dig elaborate tunnel systems underground. Thus, they tend to ruin landscaped areas, or any other place where people don't want holes and dirt piles everywhere. Read more about Gopher Removal and also Prairie Dog Removal.


Otters are cute, smart, and playful. They are fine animals, but we get nuisance complaints about them from time to time. Most commonly, they are living on or around some structure and making a mess. For example, they might choose to enter your docked boat every day and poop there. They also might eat decorative fish in your personal landscaping pond. Read more about Otter Removal.


Muskrats are rarely encountered as a nuisance animal. They are aquatic, so that rules out the majority of people's property to begin with. But for those of you who have a river, lake, or pond on your property, it's possible that you will object to the muskrat's tendency to dig burrows on the bank. Read more about Muskrat Removal.


Nutria, also known as Coyput or Nutria rat, are rarely encountered as a nuisance animal on indiviudal properties. They are more of a systemic nuisance animal, altering and destroying native wetlands by eating vegetation. They convert the biomass of plantlife to open water areas. Rarely do homeowners call us about Nutria problems, but it does happen from time to time. Read more about Nutria Removal.


These are generally fine birds, except for the fact that they are large, they flock in large numbers, and they leave behind a lot of goose droppings. They can completely befoul an area! They also scratch at lawns, damaging them. But the real problem is the large amounts of goose poop everywhere. Read more about Canada Goose Removal.


Feral Hogs, or pigs that live in the wild, are becoming increasingly common in several areas of the USA. They are big, strong, aggressive animals. They can root up huge amounts of ground when looking for food. If hogs root in your yard, they will completely destroy it, like a rototiller hit it. Read more about Feral Hog Removal.


A rarely encountered northen USA and Canada mammal, porcupines are only really a problem when they chew on and destroy trees that you'd rather not be killed. They can also threaten your dog with their sharp quills. We don't really do much significan porcupine removal work. Read more about Porcupine Removal.


We don't really handle alligators. They are more commonly handled by your state's fish & game commission. They often have agreements with private alligator trappers who will address an alligator issue if it is a real problem. But it's not something that we have the licensing to handle. If you have an actual documented aggressive alligator that has attacked people or pets, such an animal should absolutely be addressed. Read more about Alligator Removal.


Stray, or Feral Cats, are not strictly a wildlife species. But they may as well be. They behave exactly like most other urban wild animals, and are not remotely tame. They live under dumpsters, spread disease, and so on. Unlike other animals though, TNR - Trap, Neuter, Release, is a better option than just straight removal. Read more about Stray Cat Removal.


Stray dogs are not a wildlife species. But sometimes people check in with us aboit stray dog problems. From lost pets, to barking dogs, scavenging dogs, to concerns over a dangerous stray dog, people wish to have dogs removed from property. This isn't something we do. We are a private for-hire wildlife removal company. Call your local County Animal Services. Read more about Stray Dog Removal.
