We 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.

How to remove a wild animal in the chimney
It is early spring and you start hearing noises in your chimney, is either way too early or wait too late for it to be
Santa so what could it be, odds-on it is some kind of animal taking up residence. Some animals prefer chimneys to attics
and roof spaces but others are quite happy in either place.
Birds taking up residence in your chimney has to be top of the list, they love to nest in chimneys because the structure
offers serious protection from predators, most birds that nest in chimneys build the nest on top of the smoke shelf, you
can have multiple birds nests inside the flue at the same time, the nests restrict the flow of flue gases and are a serious
fire hazard will stop the easiest way to keep birds out of your chimney is to put a heavy-duty stainless steel chimney cover
on top of the chimney. Once the birds are nesting is actually illegal to try and remove them, you'll have to wait until the
chicks leave the nest before driving the parents out as well.
The next most popular animal on the list of chimney dwellers is bats. Bats are a major carrier of rabies in the United States
so if you have bats in your chimney then the best thing you can do for yourself is call a professional removal company. Keeping
bats that you chimney can be very difficult as the smallest species can crawl through a half inch opening.
The third most popular inhabitant of your chimney will be squirrels. For some reason every now and again a squirrel will build a
nest inside the chimney, these nests can get up to 15 feet long and take hours to remove, so it is best to get them removed before
the squirrel has had time to do some serious construction work. The best way to keep squirrels out of the chimney is again using a
heavy steel chimney cover.
Raccoons are the last major inhabitant of chimneys, every professional says they hate dealing with raccoons in chimneys because invariably
a raccoon in a chimney is an aggressive raccoon, also raccoons can carry rabies and roundworms. The professionals also recommend using only
heavy duty stainless steel chimney covers to keep raccoons out, they all say raccoons are quite capable of tearing up aluminium and black
steel covers so don't waste your money on these.
