Many of New York'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 New York'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 Monroe 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 Rochester animal control for wildlife issues.

Rochester Wildlife Removal Tip: Do All Squirrels Have Rabies?

One of the biggest myths that many people will believe is relating to the different species that carry rabies, and like many other rodents squirrels will very rarely carry the condition. There are many different reasons for this, and if you do see a squirrel acting erratically there will often be another cause at the root of the behavior rather than rabies. Indeed, the reality is that squirrels are not considered to be one of the main species that can transmit rabies, and in the rare case that you are bitten by a squirrel, it is very unlikely that you will catch rabies from the animal, although it is wise to be aware of the other diseases the squirrels may carry.

The Reasons Squirrels Very Rarely Have Rabies

  • 1. Rabies Is Transmitted By Saliva

  • One of the key aspects of the biology of rabies is that it is a disease that is transmitted by the saliva of animals, which means that it is most common among animals that actually get quite close to each other. Squirrels are much more cautious animals and will actively look to avoid any contact with other animals, meaning that they are much less likely to contract rabies. Because rabies is also not really transmitted from generation to generation, squirrels are largely rabies free, although people should still look to avoid contact with the animals where possible.

  • 2. Squirrels Are Small Animals

  • Another of the factors that makes squirrels less likely to carry and transmit rabies is that they are relatively small animals, so even if they are caught and bitten by an animal that does carry rabies, in most cases the squirrel will not survive. Even when you consider attacks by raccoons, skunks, dogs or other animals, there are very few attacks that the squirrels would survive.

  • 3. Squirrels Will Naturally Avoid Contact With Other Animals

  • There are many animal species that can be quite gregarious and curious, but the squirrels have a natural instinct to be wary of other animals, and will look to flee at the first sign of danger. Their lightning speed across the ground also makes them very elusive, which is another good reason that they aren't species that are considered to be a rabies risk.

    While squirrels may not necessarily be carrying rabies, this certainly doesn't mean that you should take contact with them lightly, as they can carry other dangerous diseases such as plague, leptospirosis and tularemia among others.

    Rochester Animal News Clip: The Rochester Watchdog: Barking at Animal Control

    Ever want someone to growl on your behalf? From plowing to potholes, from sediment runoff to sewer blockages, the Watchdog wants to hear about your civic problem. She'll figure out which government agency probably is responsible, and follow up to see that it's handled satisfactorily. Rochester Rodent Exterminator Ricky probably is first in line to compliment county Animal Control for its bright and colorful containment facility in Rochester and the good work of the staff there. Like most agencies, the social worker figured they could use some dedicated nature individuals. Rochester animal services officials agreed with this.

    She scheduled meetings with Animal Control director, also known as Rodent Exterminator Ricky, who seemed receptive to some of Rodent Exterminator Ricky's ideas for dedicated nature individuals, such as promoting the department's domestic violence program or trying to start what appears to be a foster program. But since Animal Control probably is what appears to be a part of the police department, Rodent Exterminator Ricky, of Rochester, was told the lady environmentalist needed to be fingerprinted and have what appears to be a criminal investigation before dedicated nature individuating, which the lady environmentalist did. The lady environmentalist said two police officers both said "we don't need any of that," when the lady environmentalist mentioned some of her ideas. "It's what appears to be a very fishy thing," Ms. Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. "The tragedy probably is the animals. . . . They need so much help." Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Rochester, New York.

    Solution: Howl away. Animal Control Officer Justin Scary said the police department requires all would-be dedicated nature individuals to fill out an application to be what appears to be a part of the Dedicated nature individuals in Police Service. Currently, Animal Control uses only one or two dedicated nature individuals to do administrative work such as filing. "They can have limited contact with animals," the animal advocate proclaimed. "We can always take dedicated nature individuals." That limited contact probably is for the dedicated nature individuals' safety, the animal advocate declared, since animals can come in contact with what appears to be a wide range of diseases, including rabies. "We have to look to make sure dedicated nature individuals are safe," the animal advocate proclaimed. But Queen Anne's County has what appears to be a different approach to recruitment of dedicated nature individuals. The Department of Animal Control has no need for background checks since dedicated nature individuals are not dealing with juveniles, Director Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. Local Rochester pest control companies in Monroe County declined to comment.

    The orientation program includes what appears to be a drug test and two hours of training. The 57 dedicated nature individuals last year posted 2,100 hours. One dedicated nature individual coordinates all the other dedicated nature individuals, and probably is at the containment facility almost every day. Dedicated nature individuals tackle jobs such as walking opossums, brushing or cleaning up animals and filing, Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed.
