How We Solve Nassau County Wildlife Problems
It starts with your phone call. We answer our phones 24/7, and we will carefully listen to your wildlife problem. Every case is different, so we will ask appropriate questions to help
us understand the situation better. Questions like, "do you hear the noises at night or during the daytime?" or "what type of roof do you have?" After we have a general idea of your
situation, we can provide a ballpark price range, and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment to inspect your property.
INSPECTION: Once on site, we will perform a full inspection of your home and property. This allows us to use the correct strategy and
traps. If the animals are in an attic, a full building inspection is crucial, including the following:
- All ground-level areas, such as piper or A/C line entry & exit areas, A/C chase bottoms, ground-level vents, etc.
- All mid-level areas, such as dryer vents, siding gaps, first floor eaves or dormers, etc.
- We inspect the entire roof, including all plumbing stacks, ridge caps, vents, and other potential gaps or holes.
- We also inspect inside your attic, to identify animals and damage they have caused.
- If the animals are outside, we notice many subtle clues that will assist us in a successful strategy.
TRAPPING, EXCLUSION, REMOVAL: Once we understand what animal species we are dealing with, and the problem, we use the most effective means of removing the animals. We use dozens of different types of traps.
- Trapping - If trapping the animal(s) in live cage traps, trap type, set, and location are crucial to success.
- Exclusion - Oftentimes, we are able to simply set one-way doors or other exclusion devices that allow the animals inside a building to safely exit, but never get back inside.
- Removal By Hand - Sometimes we actually remove animals by hand, or with special tools like snare poles.
- The Law - In all cases, we obey state and local laws regarding wildlife, but aim to take the most humane approach.
ENTRY HOLE REPAIRS: Repairs are a crucial step in the wildlife removal process. In many cases, such as bat or rodent control, the job cannot be performed without detailed repairs, and in
all cases, sealing the entry holes shut ensures that no future wildlife will ever enter your home.
- 100% of the entry holes must be found, and sealed shut, or the job is not complete.
- Our repairs are professional contractor grade, look good, and when applicable we use steel, which rodents such as rats or squirrels are unable to chew through.
- We give a written guarantee on our repairs against any future animal entry.
ATTIC DECONTAMINATION SERVICES: It may be desirable to clean your attic after we've removed the animals. They can leave behind large amounts of droppings,
urine, hair, oils, food, nesting material, and so on. These remnants can attract insects like cockroaches, and the scent left behind can encourage new animals to chew their way into your
house. You might experience odor problems from the waste. It's possible that mold will grow on waste areas.
- We remove or vacuum all droppings, or remove all the soiled insulation.
- We fog the attic with a special enzyme-based cleaner that destroys any organic matter and deodorizes the space.
- We repair damage, such as ductwork, electrical wires, pipes, insulation, and more.
The above are just a brief explanation of some of our methods. I haven't even addressed the hundreds of other potential cases that we deal with, from bat exclusions, to poison-free rodent control, to dead animal removal, bird roosting
prevention, mole trapping in a yard, ground-based exclusion barriers around a shed, etc. etc. Just give us a call any time, and we can describe in detail how we will resolve your specific wildlife problem.
Seasonal home inspections are great, you get a chance to see if
any wildlife critters have been trying to, or successfully, entering
your home and staying rent free! If you did find some holes during your
inspection you have a few options depending on how big the hole is.
Luckily, we are here to help! We answer our phones 24/7 to better service you

This month's wildlife how-to article: How to prevent raccoons from pooping in my swimming pool
How to prevent raccoons from pooping in my swimming pool
More often, there is a problem of the raccoons that may cause the problems in the swimming pools. The raccoons are known to love
water and they like to be near the streams and the lakes. However, the problem is that where the raccoons eat and live, they also
poop. Since they like to hide the feces like cat, they may also enjoy pooping in the water. When there are the raccoons near you,
they are going to use the pool as the toilet. This is even more when you have the shallow steps that lead to the pool. When you
have this problem, the best thing to do is to trap and to remove the animal so that it will no longer have the access to the pool
within your home range. The raccoons are known to be resourceful and crafty animals and they are brazen with the people and you
should have the tactics that can help in deterring the raccoons or to scare them away.
When you choose to trap the raccoons that offend you, you have to be kind since the raccoons are too intelligent and they are also
emotional animals. This is why it is nice to drive the animal to go in a faraway place within at least 10 miles so that you can release it.
The raccoons normally choose some locations in order to defecate or poop and they will continue to use the same places continuously. The
raccoons may be attracted on the place where the humans live and also play. In the pools, the raccoons may defecate in the shallow places.
In order to keep the raccoons away, you should cover the raccoon area that had been visited by the raccoons. You should keep a fence found
around your pool to be closed. You have to check if there is anyone in the area who feeds the raccoons and who is leaving the pet food outside
or the one who leaves the uncovered trash outside. You have to discourage such behavior since it is the reason why the animals are attracted to
the area. You should contact the animal control in your area and the pest control removal service to help you in relocating such animals.
You have to be careful when the raccoons defect in your pool since they may transmit the germs to the humans. The feces of raccoon sometime
can have the eggs of the worm known as Baylisascaris procyonis and it may affect the humans especially the children and it may lead to the severe
neurologic illness. The infection in the people is not easily diagnosed and when someone swallows the eggs may lead to few or no symptoms. However,
when the eggs are swallowed in a large number, it may lead to the illness that will affect the eyes or nervous system.
