Animals may create problems for you both inside and outside of your house. Birds will build their nests in external vents, such as exhaust and dryer vents, which can clog the vent and put homes at risk of fire. Poorly screened gable vents and openings in your roof or soffit will allow squirrels and bats to enter your attic and wreak havoc. Through openings in a home’s corner channels or foundation, rodents and snakes might enter your house. In Mamaroneck, New York, Westchester Wildlife provides the best expert wildlife removal services for nuisance wildlife. Our highly skilled professionals will carry out comprehensive inspections to pinpoint the precise wildlife problem you are facing while determining the best methods for removal.

We can remove a wide range of different wildlife, including:
Wildlife that gains access to your home can seriously harm your soffits, attic, gable vents, or any other entry point. We provide wildlife damage repair so you can restore your home to its previous state. In addition, we provide wildlife exclusion/animal proofing, a type of wildlife control that entails keeping animals out of your house entirely and making sure they are unable to come back once they are gone. Please be aware that we do NOT offer animal rehabilitation.
Integrated Pest Management services focus on not only eliminating the pest or wildlife from your home, but also making sure they cannot return in the future to cause more problems. Part of IPM includes repairing and fortifying the entry points where animals were entering the home. After each exclusion inspection, we will provide you with a written estimate for exclusion measures and necessary damage repair. We will carefully identify the entry points and effectively seal them off, which will provide protection against unwanted wildlife like raccoons, bats, rodents, birds, snakes and more.

We always recommend having a wildlife inspection done, so we can locate where the animal gained entry and implement the necessary measures to prevent future wildlife issues.
