How We Solve Rockville 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.
If you’ve had bats, squirrels, or rats in your attic, there’s a good chance they will have caused some damage. Commonly, the damage caused by these include chewing of electrical wiring and damage to attic insulation, and these are just two things we can repair when you hire us for your wildlife control concern. One of our top specialties is the removal of animals making noise and causing damage in your attic. If noises seem to be coming from your ceiling when its dark, there is a good chance you have a wild animal invasion, usually rats, squirrels, bats or raccoons. Our specialty is the extraction of bat colonies, and we can boast about removing 100% of the bats, using exclusion devices, without harming a single one of them. We also specialize in bird control services - we help you to prevent pigeons and other birds from roosting on your residential / commercial building or roof. We take pride in our safe and humane approach to wildlife removal and control. We promise to never use poisons, only using live cage traps, and attempting to perform exclusions and insert preventative methods where we can. We’re on hand for a super-fast service!

This month's wildlife how-to article: Top Tips to Trap A Canada Goose?
Are you searching for some trustworthy methods to capture Canada goose? There is no need to worry now because experts have suggested so many ways to trap these large creatures. But before you take any step to capture these creatures, it is important to understand that Canada goose usually travels in a group so instead of making an effort to trap only one bird, you need to plan for many of them. Below we have highlighted few methods to trap these large creatures:
Using the net to capture geese can definitely ensure your success because these larger traps are capable enough to hold many birds at a time. All that you need to do is install four poles at some distance on the ground where geese keep on visiting again and again. Now tie the large net from corners to these poles and wait for the geese to come. As soon as they enter the area covered by a net, release the bet carefully, and all the birds will be captured inside. But you cannot do this job alone because when you start dragging the net from one side, these birds may run from other direction. Hence, the best idea is to take someone else with you to handle the task.
In case if you are not in a mood to invest in large nets, it is good to look for some homemade traps that are well known as improvised traps. Instead of using the net on poles, you can also use bedsheet or your picnic blanket. If you want to chase the birds, a pillow tied to the wire can be a useful solution.
If you are planning to catch these large birds, it is important to understand how they react to your trapping behavior. Experts reveal that these large birds do not like the presence of human beings around and if they come to know about your trapping process, they will soon get aggressive and may even bite you. In such situation, it is important to find some way to ensure safety while trapping Canada geese. These large birds have enough potential to fight back and can cause great harm to aggression. Hence, it is important to maintain a great distance from them. Note that they also give some warning signs before attacking humans; you may notice hisses and flapping wings. They prefer to stand straight first and then get ready for the attack.
Those who are in trouble due to goose attacks are advised to go through standard procedures to handle the trouble on time. Generally, it is not possible to trap them with home-based techniques. Rather it is good to look for some assistance from professionals. They can help you to get rid of goose on time so that your property can stay protected from these unwelcome pests. Also, contact state authorities to get an idea about guidelines to deal with the goose; you can also handle them by using some non-lethal traps at your property.
