Bird Control and Nesting Removal
Just how does one start such a business? There are lots of ways to start a business, but starting this one off on the wrong foot is going to cost you!
A nuisance animal or nuisance wildlife control business is a career that is right for some people and definitely not right for others.
Let's start out with the job description:
Nuisance Wildlife Control Professional - Resolves nuisance wildlife complaints and prevents future ones. That is the job description in a nutshell albeit a bit oversimplified.
This description does not tell you that you will be climbing ladders, going into attics and crawlspaces and be challenged with wildlife on a daily basis. It goes with the territory.
What about education?
Most people who consider entering this career field have some knowledge of wildlife. They might come from a hunting, trapping or fishing background. This is a helpful because any wildlife knowledge is helpful to the trade.
A college education or a self study program is a leg up on the rest of your competitors.
Education is a great thing and the more you have of it, the better your chances of success will be.
There are very few schools that teach you how to become a Nuisance Wildlife Control Professional. The schools that do exist normally only have a short course and no ongoing support program to ensure your success.
So where does that leave most people? Going it alone. They have to be the pioneer and figure out each step along the way. Make one miss-step and get ready to shell out your hard earned cash to fix that mistake.
Now, back to starting your business.
You must of course obtain business licenses and insurances. If you are going to run this business out of your home, you may need additional homeowners insurance to protect you in the event something happens to your home like a flood or fire.
You will also need training and equipment. Training is important as this is not a business where you can fly by the seat of your pants. Remember that miss-step I was talking about earlier? This is where it will bite you good.
Everyone needs to advertise market and sell their services. With so many marketing messages thrown at consumers each and every second of the day, you have to stay on top of things here. Unfortunately for most new businesses, they are so busy opening their business that they do not spend enough time on this very important part of their start up. Another miss-step.
Nobody ever said it was going to be easy running your own business. It is a challenge, but a challenge that can be a lot of fun if done properly.
If it is your heart's desire to make it happen, you will do it. With the proper vision, plan, equipment, training and system, you will forge ahead and break new grounds. Without these things in place, it is a recipe for a rough road ahead!
What is wildlife removal and what is considered wildlife?
The following is an interview with our local, licensed Wildlife Control Operator. He is a licensed Wildlife Control Operator located in eastern North Carolina but we are finding that the further we humans encroach on the forest and wetlands the more these services are needed throughout the United States of America.
Wildlife removal is the business of removing nuisance wildlife in and around residential or
commercial structures. Wildlife or nuisance wildlife is any wild animal that is causing damage or presenting safety concerns towards personal property, commercial property or people or pets.
Four Points most important things about protecting yourself from wildlife.
1) Always remember no matter how cute the animal is, baby or adult animal, it is still
a wild animal and wild animals can be dangerous at any time.
2) Never get in the habit of feeling wild animals - it makes them dependent on humans
to survive, instead of its natural instincts - makes them less wary of human, causing them
to get bolder and possibly attack.
3) Keep house and outbuildings and commercial buildings in a good state of repair. Wild
animals often look for weaknesses in a structure to find den sites to raise their young. Once in the structure they can cause a lot of damage which can become quite costly. They defecate inside the structure which can cause human health problems.
4) Rabies is another health concern when dealing with wild animals. Take precautions
when working or playing in the out of doors where wildlife may be present.
How do I choose a wildlife removal service?
* Is the Wildlife Control Operator (WCO) licensed?
* Do they have liability insurance? If so how much 100,000 dollars of coverage is easy to obtain. There is no excuse not to have protection for the unknown circumstances.
* Did the WCO provide you with a variety of control options?
* Is the WCO knowledgeable or belong to State, local, or national organizations?
Are there any other services Wildlife Removal Services provide other than removal?
* We also provide exclusion so the animals will not return or new animals will not inhabit your property. We also do minor repairs to residential property caused by wildlife, if the damage is deemed serious or commercial in nature we have sub-contractors we can recommend to aide you in restoring your property.
* We also provide dead animal removal. So there you have the answers to a few questions with an expert in his field. He leaves us with just one pundit of food for thought.
" Sorry for the inconvenience but we do not remove MICE, RATs, INSECTS, or INLAWS."
Attic Deodorization and Insulation Restoration
There is a new trend developing in the nuisance wildlife management field that could surprise you. That trend is not good for consumers or the community in which they live.
Using the power of the internet, these contractors advertise doing wildlife control work anywhere in the United States. But what they don't tell you is that they are 5 states away and they are going to significantly jack up the price of their work!
Here is how this program works.
The company advertises that they have wildlife services or humane wildlife control services available nationwide. An 800 or 888 number is generally listed and you call the number and speak with an "expert" who will arrange to have a "technician" take care of you.
The "expert" then finds a local "trapper" to resolve your problem and of course adds a huge amount to your bill that you would not normally pay if you had hired a local Wildlife Control Expert. The "expert" has to jack up your bill because the "trapper" is sending him one and he is going to make a nice profit for basically taking a phone call.
Here is how to avoid dealing with these rip-off artists.
1. Ask the company if they are local or if you live near another state, are they close to you?
2. Ask them for a copy of their Nuisance Wildlife Management License and a copy of their insurance. If they send you a license that is out of state and it is not near you, this is a red flag. Ask them if they will be using a sub-contractor to do the work. Chances are they will be doing that. They have to as they cannot travel to you affordably.
3. If you suspect that you are working with a company who subcontracts out their wildlife work, you are risking any type of warranty claim you might have. For example, if you have your home repaired and animals re-enter your home, is the "trapper" responsible or the out of state "expert"? Why should the out of state "expert" care, he already has your money!
4. Look locally before you hire. If they have a local number, that is a great place to start. Ask friends for referrals. Visit this website for professionals across the country, Wildlife Professionals
5. Finally, check with your Secretary of State to see if the company is licensed to do business in your state. Most states require a business to be listed with the Secretary.
There is no reason you have to pay more for wildlife control services than you should. Paying a fair price is certainly reasonable, but paying an overly inflated price is never in the best interest of the consumer. The only person who benefits from that is the out of state "expert".
Dead Animal Removal From Under Stoop
A groundhog belongs to a big group of ground squirrels called marmots, of which there are fifteen species. They are often referred to as whistle pigs, land, beavers, or woodchucks. Groundhogs extensively burrow and primarily eat vegetation. Because of these two factors they are consider a big garden pest. If left alone, a groundhog family could very easy eat a food crop in a short amount of time. If it appears that there is an infestation, or the start of an infestation it is imperative to get rid of them.
There are many ways to do away with groundhogs. All gardeners have their own preferred method. Some want to do away with them humanely without resorting to killing them. Others just want them gone efficiently and quickly. After you get rid of the groundhog, it is necessary that you watch out for a reappearance of a groundhog population.
If it does not bother you using chemicals in your mission to do away with the groundhog, a relative humane way to do so is by using ammonia. It is a quick-acting way to get a groundhog to move away. It may sound brutal and inhumane but if you handle it correctly, the groundhog inhabitants will move away without having to kill them. The way it works is by causing their burrows to be distasteful to them. With a distasteful burrow, they will journey on their own to another area of land away from the garden.
To use the ammonia method you want to wait until you have sunny days and warm temperatures, usually summer or spring. Otherwise, you will not get the groundhog to leave their burrow. If you can find it buy some cloudy or sudsy ammonia but if you cannot find it make your own. Use one part water with seven parts ammonia along with a couple of tablespoons of dish or laundry detergent and mix. Spray it around the entrance and just inside their borrow. Once the smell gets into the burrow, they will depart in a couple of days, unless they have babies. In this case, they will leave find another burrow. Once the parents are settled, they will return for their babies. This could take several days.
Another way that is not toxic is to use a safe trap. Groundhogs are intelligent animals so you will have to be tolerant until you can catch them. Once you catch one you can either relocate them yourself or have an animal control office do so. Start out leaving it unset and open with a little amount of vegetation in it so they can get use to a safe meal Several days later you can set the trap to catch the groundhog for relocation.

You removed the animals from the attic, but are you finished yet? Nuisance wildlife in your attic can create problems many homeowners never think of. These animals can carry ectoparasites, which after the wildlife host is evicted, may move inside the home looking for a new host—YOU! Bat bugs, mites, ticks and fleas are just some of the ectoparasites you need to be concerned about. Mice in the attic, bats in the attic or various other vistors are notorious for bringing these pests in. Ask our Wildlife Management Specialists to inspect your attic and treat for these critters, after your problem species is removed.
