Skunk season is February and March, their mating season. Skunks will spray under houses, porches, sheds, and decks. This is done to attract mates and mark territories. To treat these smelly critters, we trap them live in shielded two door cages and remove them from your property.
Raccoons can be very aggressive and destructive and are also a vector for Rabies. We often see raccoons infesting chimneys, attics, sheds, and seasonal camps. Raccoons will enter structures to hibernate and have their young. These animals are live trapped or excluded.
Squirrels — Gray, Red, and Flying
Squirrels are our most commonly seen wildlife pest. They will chew access holes into attics, soffits, and eaves of buildings. Several generations of squirrels may live in one den. These animals are very destructive and can cause major damage to exterior facades. When in the attic or walls, their constant gnawing damages the structural members and electrical wires. These animals are trapped and excluded.
Bats — Small and Large Brown
Bats return annually to the Champlain Valley to give birth and spend the warm months feeding on the abundance of flying insects. Small brown bats may live up to 25 years and will return to the same summer roost. If this roost is your house, you could have a large colony living in your attic. We offer exclusion and clean up services for property owners. Exclusion requires all cracks 3/8” or larger be sealed and can be quite extensive. Estimates and site visits are required for all pricing.
These large rodents are very destructive to an urban environment. They will dam all moving water in their selected lodge site, often causing washouts and excessive flooding. These animals are trapped and removed.
