Nuisance Wildlife Control
Out in nature, raccoons, opossums, squirrels, skunks and other wild animals are perfectly normal. However, sometimes these animals invade your property and even your home, which can endanger your family. For more than 60 years, Dugas Pest Control has been providing humane wildlife removal services for raccoons, opossums, moles, and more.
Wildlife Removal Process
If you notice a wild animal in or on your property, it is not recommended that you try to catch or handle it yourself. There is always a chance of injury to yourself or the animal, which is why a professional wildlife control company is necessary. Our wildlife removal services include:
- Identification of the type of wildlife you are dealing with
- Recommendation for a specific plan for capturing the animal
- Trapping the animal and safely removing it from your home or business
- Eliminating any sources of food and shelter for wildlife around your property
- Securing possible entry points where these animals may be entering your property to prevent future problems

Frequently Asked Questions About Wildlife Control
The best way to ensure that your property is safe from a wildlife infestation is to hire a professional pest control company. However, some measures you can take on your own include installing screens on your vents and chimneys, cleaning up your yard, and sealing your trash cans.
Homeowners’ insurance policies often cover some percentage of all structures and items that were damaged in a wildlife outbreak. However, every policy is different, and some plans will leave out rodent damage or damage caused by other particular wildlife. You can always talk to your insurance provider about what your plan entails.
Whether your wildlife problem is growing slowly or in full swing, our wildlife removal experts will complete a comprehensive inspection of your property. This will allow us to determine the source of the outbreak and the best steps to take next. We may choose from different methods of humane capture and release or a variety of wildlife traps. Afterward, we will take specific exclusion efforts tailored to your situation to help prevent future infestations.
Whenever we are able to, we use safe, humane methods of catch and release to deal with wildlife. We always try to prioritize the health of our region’s environment and its animals. Some pest problems, though, need to be dealt with using traps. This is often the case with rodent outbreaks. However, we will look for any possible opportunity for a humane strategy.
Usual signs of wildlife living on your property include squeaking and scratching in your walls or attic, rustling sounds under your floors or deck, and flipped-over or opened garbage cans. Some people also find droppings in the corners of their rooms, teeth marks on wire and walls, foul odors, and urine stains on their floors from pests living inside the house.
Wildlife pests are able to cause a lot of damage to homes and businesses. Some animals rip through your insulation, chew holes through roofing, walls, and wiring, and damage your floors and siding. Wild animals can also create a fire hazard by chewing up your electrical wiring. They also cause less serious damage with their droppings, urine, and nests.
Some wild animals tend to resort to aggression much quicker than you would hope. When wild animals stumble upon your property, they can feel threatened in an unfamiliar environment and act defensively. To keep yourself, your family, and your home safe from wildlife, you can rely on a professional wildlife removal company who can take care of your problems quickly and effectively.

Humane Wildlife Management
