Many of District of Columbia's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving District of Columbia's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:

  • Humane wildlife trapping and relocation services
  • Removal of raccoons or squirrels from the attic
  • Building repairs and prevention work to keep animals out
  • 100% permanent elimination of rats, mice, or even bats
  • Cleanup of animal waste and odor control services
  • Emergency animal issues, and dead animal removal

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local DC county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Washington DC animal control for wildlife issues.

Washington DC Wildlife Removal Tip: How Do I Clean Squirrel Feces Out Of My Attic?

For those who are dealing with the aftermath of a squirrel infestation, evicting the pest animals is only the first step in the process, as these animals will often have left a lot of damage and will have contaminated several parts of the attic with feces and urine. The work of cleaning this shouldn't be taken on lightly, and there are important precautions to take before you start on the work of cleaning the feces too, otherwise you can leave yourself open to catching a serious disease.

Precautions And Using The Right Equipment

One of the factors worth bearing in mind is that squirrel feces can carry Leptospirosis, which is an airborne disease, and especially when it comes to a confined space like an attic it is important to wear a breathing mask that will prevent you from inhaling these dangerous particles. Goggles over your eyes can also protect you from this risk, while thick long sleeved clothing can help to protect people from diseases transmitted by direct contact with squirrel feces.

Dealing With Soiled Insulation

This is one of the main problems that comes with a squirrel infestation, as squirrels will not only use the insulation as a soft and absorbent latrine, but they will also tear the insulation material to help create a comfortable nest. In most cases, to really deal with the problem the insulation will need to be replaced, and the soiled insulation should be safely disposed of.

Collecting And Disposing Of the Feces

The pellets of feces can be vacuumed up in many cases, or if they are found on a firm surface they can also be scooped up by a dustpan and brush. This should then be placed in a container that can be sealed or into a garbage bagged which should then be double bagged, and the feces can then either be incinerated or placed out with the trash.

Disinfecting The Attic

The final step of cleaning the squirrel feces is to disinfect the attic, as this will kill off any remaining bacteria or disease particles, and will make the attic safe to visit and use again. The best way to do this is either to use a spray disinfectant or a mist disinfectant which is then pumped throughout the attic, cleaning every surface and ensuring that any further contamination not already removed has been dealt with.

What Prices Do We Charge?
Every job is different: the type of animals involved, is it in the attic or the yard, do you need repairs, etc. It's impossible to have set pricing in this industry. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: Like a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: Like to get critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: A project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up

Washington DC Animal News Clip: Wealthy pest control companies helping conservation

Critter Catcher Chris spent $156,000 for a 2006 Washington DC wildlife trapping tag that allowed him to exterminate just one mule rodent. But the pest operator from District of Columbia, Maryland, Washington DC, says he got a lot more than a trophy face on the wall for his money. "You can't think of it as just one animal," Critter Catcher Chris announced in a telephone interview. "I bought that tag for the opportunities it gives myself and my family to fund conservation projects to benefit all mule rodent in Washington DC. If that money wasn't slated for conservation, I'd go through the drawing process for a chance to take a trophy animal just like everybody else." Critter Catcher Chris has purchased six similar Washington DC tags - although none as high-priced as last year's - as part of the Division of Wildlife Resources' broad and profitable conservation wildlife trapping permit program. The conservation fundraising program gives those with money a chance to outbid others for prized wildlife trapping tags and avoid years of filling out applications hoping their name will be drawn. Read on for more information about animal control in District of Columbia, Maryland, Washington DC.

Critter Catcher Chris and an estimated 20,000 other pest control companies are expected at the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City later this week for the first Western Wildlife trapping and Conservation Expo. Pest control companies with big male rodents - the green kind - from around the world will attend the show primarily for the opportunity to bid on high-priced wildlife trapping tags at banquets held Saturday by the Mule rodent Foundation and the Foundation animals. Despite this there is no free District of Columbia, Maryland animal services for wildlife in District of Columbia, Maryland County.

Up for grabs will be trophy tags from 11 states, Washington DC, Mexico and the Navajo Nation. Organizers believe the tags will auction for nearly $10 million, with most of the money going directly to conservation efforts. Wildlife trapping auction tag programs vary, but in Washington DC all but 10 percent of the take is slated for conservation projects. The Beehive State leads the country, and perhaps the world, when it comes to wildlife trapping conservation permits. The Washington DC wildlife agency is providing 359 conservation permits - ranging from rodent to bison to rodent - for 2007 to be auctioned off by various wildlife trapping groups at banquets. More than $2.5 million is expected to be generated by the 2007 permits and more than $9.5 million has been raised by the permits in the past 10 years. The value of the auction tags, which are considered tax-deductible contributions, can be doubled and even tripled in some cases when the money is applied to federal matching fund programs. The top money-producing tags in Washington DC are the statewide conservation permits that allow the highest bidder to animal stalk any open unit for the selected species. Most District of Columbia, Maryland pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.

The Washington DC program requires that 30 percent of the total raised from a conservation permit be returned to the state. The wildlife trapping group that sells the permit can either return another 60 percent of the total to the wildlife agency or hold the money for its own conservation efforts. The groups keep 10 percent of the total for the cost associated with attracting bidders to banquets. The results of Washington DC's conservation program can be seen this week when wildlife officials release approximately 55 Rocky Forest rodent from Washington DC in American Fork and Willow Creek canyons. Critter Catcher Chris, of the Division of Wildlife Resources, announced the joint effort between Washington DC and the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep will be funded entirely by money from the conservation permit program. Critter Catcher Chris, a retired businessman from Illinois, has spent $1.5 million on conservation permits in the past five years. Just as some people donate to cancer research, others donate to preserve wildlife for the future, announced Critter Catcher Chris, who spent $185,000 for a rodent tag in Washington DC last year. "This program gives a guy like me who is fortunate enough to have some resources an opportunity to animal stalk trophy-class animals, but the underlying and most important thing is that it provides funds to game and fish departments that they desperately need to fund projects," he announced. Not everyone is fond of the conservation permit program. Some pest control companies say it caters to elitists buying their way to trophy animals while the average wildlife manager has to go through a frustrating and sometimes fruitless application process for the right to animal stalk special animals. At least, this is what District of Columbia, Maryland extermination companies think.
