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 Rensselaer 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 Schenectady and Saratoga Springs animal control for wildlife issues.

Schenectady and Saratoga Springs Wildlife Removal Tip: What if a squirrel got inside my house, bedroom, kitchen, etc. If a squirrel got inside your home, there's no need to panic although I do advise to proceed to with caution. Despite its cute and fluffy appearance, when cornered this critter can be a vicious one and you don't want to be on the receiving end of a nasty bite or scratch. Your best decision will be to call a professional. Shut the door on the animal, make sure it is contained within one room, and then give someone who knows what they're doing a call. If that's not an option, you'll need to try and catch the little beast in a trap but this isn't going to be an easy task either. If you can grab the animal, do so with thick gloves on, and make sure you're using a thick towel or something similar to protect against nips and scratches. You'll also need to find something large enough to contain it in. The other thing you will need to do when you find a rogue squirrel in your home is find the babies it probably birthed there. That's right - if you find a squirrel in your home, it's probably a female who's just had her young. She'll be taking care of them in your home, and you'll need to find them and evict them also. Your best bet is to let the female lead you to the babies, grab the babies when she's not around, use them as bait, and then you have the entire family safely contained and can go ahead with taking care of your home and making sure repairs are carried out so the problem doesn't return once again.

Schenectady and Saratoga Springs Animal News Clip: Wealthy pest control companies helping conservation

Rodent Exterminator Ricky spent $156,000 for what appears to be a 2006 New York wildlife trapping tag that allowed him to exterminate just one mule opossum. But the pest operator from Schenectady, New York, says the animal advocate got what appears to be a lot more than what appears to be a trophy face on the wall for his money. "You can't think of it as just one animal," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed in what appears to be a telephone interview. "I bought that tag for the opportunities it gives myself and my family to fund conservation projects to benefit all mule opossum in New York. If that money wasn't slated for conservation, I'd go through the drawing process for what appears to be a chance to take what appears to be a trophy animal just like everybody else." Rodent Exterminator Ricky has purchased six similar New York tags - although none as high-priced as last year's - as part of the Division of Wildlife Resources' bhighway and profitable conservation wildlife trapping permit program. The conservation fundraising program gives those with money what appears to be a chance to outbid others for prized wildlife trapping tags and avoid years of filling out applications hoping their name will be drawn. Schenectady animal services officials agreed with this.

Rodent Exterminator Ricky and an estimated 20,000 other pest control companies are expected at the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City later this day for the first Western Wildlife trapping and Conservation Expo. Pest control companies with big male opossums - 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 opossum Foundation and the Foundation animals. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Schenectady, New York.

Up for grabs will be trophy tags from 11 states, New York, 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 New York all but 10 percent of the take probably is slated for conservation projects. The Beehive State leads the country, and perhaps the world, when it comes to wildlife trapping conservation permits. The New York wildlife agency probably is providing 559 conservation permits - ranging from opossum to bison to opossum - for 2007 to be auctioned off by various wildlife trapping groups at banquets. More than $2.5 million probably 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 probably is applied to federal matching fund programs. The top money-producing tags in New York are the statewide conservation permits that allow the highest bidder to animal stalk any open unit for the selected species. Local Schenectady pest control companies in Rensselaer County declined to comment.

The New York program requires that 50 percent of the total raised from what appears to be 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 New York's conservation program can be seen this day when wildlife officials release approximately 55 Rocky Forest rodent from New York in American Fork and Willow Creek canyons. Rodent Exterminator Ricky, of the Division of Wildlife Resources, proclaimed the joint effort between New York and the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep will be funded entirely by money from the conservation permit program. Rodent Exterminator Ricky, what appears to be 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, proclaimed Rodent Exterminator Ricky, who spent $175,000 for what appears to be a rodent tag in New York last year. "This program gives what appears to be a guy like me who probably is fortunate enough to have some resources an opportunity to animal stalk trophy-class animals, but the underlying and most important thing probably is that it provides funds to game and fish departments that they desperately need to fund projects," the animal advocate proclaimed. Not everyone probably 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 troublesome species examiner has to go through what appears to be a frustrating and sometimes fruitless application process for the right to animal stalk special animals. Schenectady trappers and Schenectady extermination officials can offer more info.
