Wildlife Removal NYC – Skunk Removal, Squirrel Removal …

Comments Off on Wildlife Removal NYC – Skunk Removal, Squirrel Removal …, Uncategorized, by admin.

Our professional NYC wildlife removal services involve the humane removal of wildlife from homes and businesses.

B & D Pest Solutions is well equipped to safely remove wild animals from your property. While doing so, we adhere to strict guidelines and laws.

We are dedicated not only to removing invasive wildlife and pests from your home, we can also save you time and money by helping you prevent further problems.

Our wildlife removal services also include replacing damaged insulation and sealing all entry points, thereby preventing future intrusions and making your home safer and more efficient.

If you hear strange noises from your attic in the middle of the night, a wild animal may have invaded your home. These animals can cause a lot of damage once they are able to enter your home. They move about the walls, attic, and crawlspaces of the building, chew on wooden furniture, gnaw on electrical wires, and tear up your insulation. Not only this, they deposit feces and other germ laden material. They also become defensive of the space they have intruded. Our experts often come across situations where the animal chews off electrical wire coatings and expose wires. This greatly increases the risk of short circuits and house fires.

If you are having issues with wildlife on your property, the safest and most humane way for us to remove them is to set up appropriate bait and traps, depending on the wildlife species you are targeting. Once the animal is trapped, they are humanely relocated to a safe place such as a wildlife preserve.

Each wildlife control situation is unique, so an initial inspection is necessary before we devise an animal removal plan. The trapping techniques we employ vary for each type of animal we encounter.

Our NYC wildlife removal experts carry out a detailed inspection of the attic and other areas where intrusion is suspected, in order to identify the species of wildlife we are trying to remove. We also try to gauge the condition of the roof and exterior in order to determine how the animal is entering the building. Once we have identified the access points, we develop a plan to seal them off so that any future invasions can be prevented. Finally, after the animal has been removed and access points have been sealed, we carry out sanitation treatment to cleanse your home of any microbes the animal would have left behind.

If you suspect the presence of wildlife in your home, it is usually not a good idea to try removing it yourself. Remember, you dont know what you are dealing with and how the animal is going to react to your efforts.

B & D Pest Solutions is a full service wildlife removal and pest control company. We provide animal removal services for both residential and commercial properties. Our wildlife removal experts have years of experience under their belt, and are capable of removing a variety of animals.

We are a licensed and insured company, and we pride ourselves in our unparalleled ability to solve your pest related problems!

Squirrel Pest Control in Bronx, NYC – bedbugnewyorkcity.com

Comments Off on Squirrel Pest Control in Bronx, NYC – bedbugnewyorkcity.com, NYC Squirrel Pest Control, by admin.

A squirrel is a small or medium-sized rodent. Squirrels are herbivores; they eat a wide variety of plant food, including nuts, seeds, conifer cones, fruits, fungi, and green vegetation, and eat insects.

Predatory behavior by various species of ground squirrels, particularly the thirteen-lined ground squirrel has been noted.

Squirrels are sometimes considered pests because of their propensity to chew on various edible and inedible objects. This characteristic trait aids in maintaining sharp teeth, and because their teeth grow continuously, prevents over-growth. Homeowners in areas with a heavy squirrel population must keep attics and basements carefully sealed to prevent property damage caused by nesting squirrels.

Always Trap Feral Kittens, Don’t Chase ‘Em Down and Bag ‘Em!

Comments Off on Always Trap Feral Kittens, Don’t Chase ‘Em Down and Bag ‘Em!, Uncategorized, by admin.

by Mike Phillips, NYC Feral Cat Initiative

Chasing down feral kittens and grabbing them is always a bad idea, even when successful. The stress and anxiety for the kittens can take weeks for them to overcome. I imagine their instinct must convince the kittens that the person chasing them is set upon eating them. When that same person tries to pet them, and hold them, and nurture them, Ill take that bet as to how receptive they will be.

Trapping removes a human presence from the terrifying experience of being separated from their mother and the life they know. The human can then actually take a positive role when we offer food and reunite them with their siblings. The less the kittens associate humans with their trauma, the faster we can gain their trust and tame them for adoption.

Trapping Technique

Heres my ideal scenario for a successful trapping of mom and kittens:

Before starting any trapping, I feed the mom and kittens for several days from a trap that I secure open with a cable-tie to make sure no one gets trapped before Im ready. I put a big bowl of food in the back of the trap and a trail of food from front to back. The objective is to make sure that even the shyest kittens and mom are not afraid to go into the trap before you start trapping. Trust me, doing this will save you hours and days of trap-watching. If you cant leave a trap out safely, try it even for the short time you are there feeding each day. Padlock the trap (secured open) to a fence if there is any risk of the trap being stolen or tampered with. Hide it under a bush if you can safely leave it for all the cats to get confident going into it without hesitation.

Normally, moms trot out their litters to the feeding station at about six weeks old. If you saw when the mom got skinny (after delivering her litter), you can set up the trap (tied open) about six weeks later and start training mom to go into it even before she brings the kittens along too. Nursing moms are extremely hungry and sometimes, it is only when nursing that you can hope to trap a very wary female.

You probably wont see all the kittens the first day or two. There are usually a couple of very shy ones who wont dare to follow mom the first day or two. Once mom and all the kittens have been seen going into the trap to eat without hesitation, only then are you ready to start the trapping project.

PHOTO 1: Notice that the string is taut and ready to be pulled. This way it will not distract the cat in the trap as the string is pulled. They can be out and gone before you even get the string straight and taut. Some people tie the string to the bottom of the bottle for less of a visual distraction. (Photo by Urban Cat League)

I always try to trap mom first and get her safely out of the picture with no kitten witnesses. Moms usually leave the den in mid-afternoon to look for food while the litter is still sleeping. This is the perfect time to set the trap for her and whisk her away to a basement, garage, or bathtub for holding, after covering the trap with a sheet to keep her as calm as possible. Make sure your vet isnt one of the less experienced ones who wont spay a lactating female. Most vets experienced with ferals will do it without a problem. After six weeks, mom is ready to start weaning the kittens and she can be spayed safely after this point. If you prefer to spay her later, thats fine, but in a large TNR project, sometimes you need to spay when you get the chance and not risk another litter. Its your choice, time, and energy, but getting mom spayed should be a priority and not forgotten just because there are kittens to deal with.

I trap mom in the conventional way, setting the trip plate, but with the kittens, I switch to the bottle and string technique shown in photo 1. This way I can be sure a second or third kitten is not in the way of the door or gets caught when the door comes down. You may even get lucky and get two or three kittens at a time as they crowd into the back of the trap around the dish of food.

Get the shyest kittens first. Dont be in a hurry and greedily trap the first and bravest kittens to go into the trap. Learn how many there are before you start trapping and keep track of which ones are the last to come to the party. Late afternoon near dusk is the usual time for kittens to leave the den and come to the feeding station where youve trained them to go into the trap without hesitation. The shy ones will freak if they witness the brave ones getting trapped. When you start to trap the kittens, let the brave ones eat and go if necessary to wait for the shy ones. Youll always get another chance with the brave ones. The shy ones are the smart ones and they wont give you a second chance for some time if you blow it the first time. They are used to mom being away for periods of time without worrying so dont worry about that. Wait until the shyest one, or hopefully two, are in the trap eating together to pull the string for the first time. Even if a couple of the braver ones witness this, theyll come back soon enough but not vice versa. The shyer/smarter ones will hightail it back to the den and not come out for a day or more if they witness the trapping of the braver ones, or if half their family mysteriously disappears. Get them first and youll be done with everyone in short order. Even if the brave ones have eaten and gone, they wont hesitate to come back the next day and eagerly load into the trap. Dont be in a hurry. Wait until you get the shy one(s) first, with no other shy witnesses, if at all possible.

PHOTO 2: In the reverse situation, when mom isn’t trapped first and won’t go near the trap, the bottle and string are also necessary because putting another trap inside a trap renders the trip plate unusable. Hopefully the kitten will call out to mom. For the photo, the trap is out in the open, but trapping may work better in a secluded area or with the end of the trap covered so mom will need to go into the trap to approach the kitten. (Photo by Urban Cat League)

PHOTO 3: Mom can be used as bait if the kittens won’t come out to be trapped. (Photo by Urban Cat League)

In that case, I put mom or another kitten sibling in a trap and put that trap inside a larger trap or under a drop trap. (A small cat or squirrel trap fits inside the bigger raccoon traps.) The kitten will often come out to see the mom and can be trapped in a regular trap using the bottle and string or with the drop trap.

Six weeks old is OK to separate mom and kittens. Start the kittens right away with socialization for adoption, and TNR mom and return her for continued outdoor care. Dont forget to have her eartipped!

Squirrel problem – Trapperman Forums

Comments Off on Squirrel problem – Trapperman Forums, Uncategorized, by admin.

I collect up walnuts as I have no walnut trees , I keep a pail of them and toss a walnut to the back of a live trap , when they go in for it , they are dinner.

I have also use peanuts but those are best placed in a can wired to the back so they can’t grab them without going in

I guess I have also used bird seed and corn.

try some of each

why do you need to give it a home , even people in NYC can live trap squirrel and eat them.

take them in your garage where it is legal to discharge a pellet gun and have dinner town squirrels are well fed and quite tasty.

relocation may be against the law check your regs it would be here unless you own or have permission to release animals from the owner

some hardware cloth and a big hose clamp to cover the pipe might be in order

I have trapped squirrel in my yard till I go a week empty with 2 set traps every fall for about 5 years , there are always new squirrels a month later they move in

Do Ultrasonic Pest Repellents Really Work? | Today’s Homeowner

Comments Off on Do Ultrasonic Pest Repellents Really Work? | Today’s Homeowner, NYC Squirrel Pest Control, by admin.

Ultrasonic electronic pest and insect repellent devices claim that their high frequency sound waves are intolerable to rodents and insects.

However, simply plugging in one of these devices probably wont end your pest woes. Its important to understand exactly what these devices can do before investing in one.

In 2001, the Federal Trade Commission sent a warning to manufacturers of ultrasonic pest control devices, demanding that claims of effectiveness must be backed up by scientific research.

Thanks to the FTC intervention, package claims on ultrasonic rodent and insect devices are a little less preposterous than they used to be, and many product websites have links explaining their research methods and results, such as these from Green Shield and Victor.

If you dig a little deeper into the various products, youll find that the studies have mixed results.Overall, some ultrasonic pest control devices show some results with certain pests hows that for convincing?

These products are by no means a quick fix, and none of them claim 100% effectiveness on any pest, so they need to be kept in perspective as a possible contributor to an overall pest management system, not as a magic weapon.

If youre thinking of adding electronic repellents to your pest-control system, keep in mind:

For 24 hour emergency service call us at 888-928-2668

24/7 bat emergency call now.

Welcome to NY-NJ Wildlife Removal, your first step to the effective and humane removal of wildlife within your home or office.

Vast woodlands and forests contribute to the lush and serene atmosphere of Staten Island, New Jersey, and the greater New York City area; however, while living near green-space has its obvious benefits, a home near nature is also a vulnerable target for pests and creatures who find shelter within residential or commercial structures. Chimneys, roof junctions, soffits, basements, decks and attics all make excellent habitats for unwanted woodland intruders who often carry the risk of infecting loved ones with a handful of diseases including ringworm, rabies and Lyme disease. If an animal like a raccoon, opossum or squirrel is seen stumbling around during the day, theres a good chance its sick. Dont go near, or touch the animal. Retreat to a safe distance and call us immediately! Even if the animal is already dead, call a professional to care for the removal in the safest way possible.

At NY-NJ Wildlife Removal, we use effective methods to eliminate infestations while taking more humane approaches toward the removal of wild animals. WE SPECIALIZE IN RACCOON REMOVAL as well as removal of all unwanted animals. In addition to the quality of our service, our post removal restoration techniques are what surmounts our services from other wildlife control providers. After eradicating your home of natures uninvited, our licensed and insured experts will sanitize and repair the infected and damaged areas. This means: if the eves of your roof are damaged by pests, we will refurbish the structure. In the case of a raccoon, squirrel or any other invasive animal nesting, our professionals will replace insulation or other structural necessities that were destroyed during the infestation.

Acceptable forms of payment include cash, check or any credit card.

Getting Squirrels Out of Attics & Eaves – Safe-Home.com

Comments Off on Getting Squirrels Out of Attics & Eaves – Safe-Home.com, NYC Squirrel Pest Control, by admin.

Question about the product Evictor Strobe Light Squirrel and Rat Repeller Product Code: EP-MB10K

Q: “Squirrels have eaten into our eaves, but have not gotten into the house (yet) Will this or a similiar product work in that type of area? We are not exactly sure where they are, but have seen them go in and out.”-Debbie

Answer: The Squirrel Evictor Strobe Light is designed to be used indoors. It is a very large strobe light and will most likely cause the neighbors to complain. You could install one indoors in the attic area in case they do get in. NOTE: Currently distribution of the Evictor products to Safe Home ceased due to a law suit between the original partners. (2013). Replacement stobe lights are available through Safe Home for both sizes of Evictor strobe fixtures.

You may want to try Bird Proof Gel or Bird Proof Liquid . You can apply the gel using a caulk gun or the liquid can be sprayed on. This is an EXTREMELY sticky substance and the squirrels HATE it. Once it gets on their fur they can’t get it off. Another suggestion is the somewhat noisy Bird-X YardGard that operates on AC current or batteries. We would recommend continuously running the Yard Guard units for best results. For a large attic you will need several units. Make sure you add more insulation if yours in the attic is thin. Many power companies are currently (Jan 2014) offering rebates up to $1000 for adding additional attic insulation.

Thanks for your question. Good luck!

Sincerely, Barbara
