Intrepid Wildlife Services is a full-service Rockland County wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Rockland County pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Intrepid Wildlife Services performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and cleanup is sometimes recommended. how to get rid of raccoons. how to get rid of squirrels. how to get rid of rats. how to get rid of bats. The above are just some of the services offered by Intrepid Wildlife Services. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. Intrepid Wildlife Services also provides dead animal removal in Rockland County.

Rockland County Wildlife Tip #1:Tips on trapping rodents – So, you have a problem with an rodent and you want to sort it out? There is no need to worry or stress, these simple tips will give you helpful information on how to make sure your traps work to effectively and safely trap the nuisance animal so you can then go on ahead to release it or hand it over to the professionals to let them sort it out! Firstly, with live traps, you will need to choose bait. This could be cat food, sweet fruit like apples, or meat – you will find lots of information online on which bait to use, but a bit of trial and error on your part will soon lead you to the right ones. Make sure that your trap is on flat ground, with nothing around it, and cannot be moved. Although the possum may not look like much, it weighs in at around the same size of a cat and you will want to be sure the creature doesn’t try to throw its weight around. One wrong move and the rodent could tip the cage over, potentially releasing itself or injuring itself; two things that you definitely don’t want. Also, be ensuring there is no debris or anything around, you can make sure the animal goes into the trap, rather than around or no top of it. If the creature jumps on top, the mechanism could go off, and this will make the trap pointless with no animal inside! Test the trap! This is important! A trap that doesn’t work could go off for no reason, could not go off at all, or could go off incorrectly. These scenarios could lead to an escaped rodent, an empty cage, or an injured rodent; again, three things that you do not want to happen. Finally, make sure that you place the rodent traps in the right place, and in the right direction. You can keep an eye out after dark for where the rodent seems to be running – this will help you with good trap placement and will ensure that your animal is caught as quickly as possible. Rockland County Wildlife Tip #2:Skunk trapped in the yard – Sometimes skunks get into areas where we don’t want them, and one of those areas can be the fenced-in yard. Sometimes you can’t figure out how the animal got inside the barrier, but there it is, wandering around the perimeter, looking for a way out. The easiest way to handle this situation is to go outside and open up the gate in the fence. The skunk will eventually find its way out. Don’t be afraid to go out into the yard; skunks will only spray if they feel cornered and threatened. If you’re on one end of the yard and the skunk is on the other, chances are you won’t have to worry about the animal spraying you. If you have a back yard that doesn’t have a proper gate, or another way to let the skunk out, your best option is to call in a professional to remove the animal. You can try to trap it and then remove it yourself, but this will require waiting a few days for the skunk to settle down and eat the bait you use in the trap. New York Wildlife Information:New York State State bird: Eastern bluebirdState mammal: BeaverState amphibian: Wood frogState fish: Brook trout and striped bassState insect: 9-spotted ladybugState reptile: Common snapping turtleNew York, the Empire State, has a diverse population of animals, attributed to the state’s variety of landscapes and wide range of temperatures. Not only are there heat-loving animals in New York, like snakes, frogs, and turtles, there are a good number of animals just as oriented to survival in cold weather, like wolves, bear, and deer. Most of these cold-to-warm critters have adaptations not seen in other states. White-tailed deer, for example, will store fat and develop thick coats for the cold season, whereas their cousins in the warmer southern states have no need for such an improvement. If winter is too much for an animal in New York State, it either enters of form of hibernation or it migrates. This is true for the numerous bats, woodchucks, geese, amphibians, and snakes in the area. People who aren’t from New York often associate the state with the large city that shares its name. New York City, though it houses the majority of people in the state, is just a small part of the landscape. Upstate New York, which can be rural or urban, is far larger, and has the bulk of wildlife New York is known for. Unfortunately, because New York is widely populated with the exception of the Adirondack Mountains, most of the animals in the state have the potential to become nuisances. Residents have their fair share of raccoon, opossum, skunk, and woodchuck invasions every year. Beaver, though not as densely populated as they once were, number in the hundreds of thousands. These creatures are not terribly problematic unless homeowners live near bodies of water that are being flooded or drained due to beaver activity. Some landscape damage from tree-felling is also characteristic of this wood-loving critter. While beaver, skunks, squirrels, and woodchucks aren’t predatory to people, there are a number of dangerous wild animals in New York that can become pests. The number one problem predator is the coyote. Because of a population boom, this canine has spread to both urban and rural areas, killing pets and livestock, posing a threat to small children. Coyotes are also common carriers of rabies in the state along with skunks and raccoons. When it comes to rabies, however, bats are still the number one species for infection in New York. There are thousands of confirmed animal rabies cases in the state every year, and the Department of Environmental Control took to vaccinating the animal population with vaccine-doctored food blocks dropped into the wild by way of helicopter.
