Fox Pest Control’s Long Island Wildlife Removal Service

The uneasiness you feel when you find small pests on your property only increases when you see an actual wild animal. These animals are hard to get rid of on your own, and the thought of removing one yourself leaves so many unanswered questions: Will it bite me? Does it carry diseases? Is there something I legally need to do when removing wildlife from my property? In most cases, proper wildlife handling requires tags from the state. Make it easy on yourself, and contact the professionals. Here at Fox Pest Control, we work hard to keep you safe and informed.

Signs of a Wildlife Infestation

You might already know for sure that you have a wildlife problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a wildlife problem in Long Island. 

  • Sightings. Sightings of many types of wildlife pests are rare, since raccoons, gophers, groundhogs, and bats can be extremely elusive. 
  • Sounds at Night. Some types of wildlife aren’t particular about the noise they make at night. Bats, raccoons, squirrels, and other nocturnal animals can be especially noisy.
  • Damage. Raccoons, squirrels, gophers, groundhogs, and other pests are capable of ripping up siding or roof tiles, open up and worsen foundation cracks, destroy vegetable gardens, gnaw wood, and other damage.

Things You Need to Know About General Wildlife Control:

  • Wildlife Control is a specialized service surrounded by legalities and protections. In fact, each state has unique handling requirements. 
  • In each scenario, the safety of the animal and people involved is the top priority. 
  • While animals on your property might not seem like a problem at first, they can cause serious damage in a short amount of time.
    • Raccoons have been known to tear up grass, eat garden crops and rip tiles off roofs.
    • Squirrels, though cute, also have destructive tendencies when interacting with property. They can chew electric cables, shred insulation and wood in the attic, and be incredibly noisy.  
    • Bats can spread hazardous diseases like histoplasmosis and rabies.

Examples of wildlife that Fox Pest Pros are trained to capture include:

Helpful Wildlife Prevention Tips:

  • Clean up yard debris
  • Erect fences around areas, trees, and plants that you don’t want to be affected by animals

Why should I call Fox for Wildlife Control Services instead of State Animal Control?

Animal Control: In many states, animal control doesn’t get rid of wildlife from your property. Government-run animal control usually deals with pets and their behavior, like cats and dogs.

Fox Wildlife Control Services can remove wild animals from your property and reduce the risks they pose, like spreading disease to you or your family. Can also be paired with Fox Premiere Exclusion Services to keep them out for good

Long Island Pest Control Reviews

5 Stars

We have never needed pest control in the past and we randomly called Fox. We couldn't be happier with Phil the technician that came to service our home. Phil was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and patient. He answered all of our questions and put us at ease. If all of Fox's technicians are like Phil then you'll be in good hands.

We've been using FOX for the last few years for seasonal pest maintenance. Every time we see some sort of pest activity outside our regular seasonal treatment, they come quick and take care of it. The workers are always kind and courteous and answer my questions and concerns. We've recommended this company to a number of family and friends who have also used FOX for treatment.
