Wildlife Problems in Malden, MA
Located in the Boston metro area, Malden, MA, doesn't have enough natural sources of food and shelter to support local wildlife populations. As a result, the pests turn to neighborhoods for survival. Homeowners regularly encounter raccoons, squirrels, and bats among other animals.
Raccoons are clever and adaptable, which is why they usually mean trouble for Malden homeowners. These pests can open unsecured trashcans, pry up container lids, and easily slip through shed doors. Attempting to capture a raccoon is dangerous. Animals infected with rabies transmit the virus through bites and scratches.
Squirrels in the Yard
Abundant throughout Massachusetts, squirrels have adjusted well to life around houses. These rodents raid gardens in search of berries, fruit, and flowers and may strip bark from tree trunks as well as branches. A squirrel can also damage lawns by burying food caches, leaving unsightly holes across the yard.
Bats sometimes gather in colonies in attics and outbuildings. In addition to causing a terrible odor, a buildup of guano beneath their roosts is a health risk for Malden residents. Bat waste can develop harmful fungal spores. When inhaled, these microbes can cause histoplasmosis, a serious respiratory disease.
More Massachusetts Wildlife
Other common Malden nuisances are opossums and skunks. An opossum roots through garbage bins for easy meals and leaves messes that attract rodents and other pests.
Skunk populations thrive across Massachusetts. If cornered or threatened, these animals can release a foul liquid from their hindquarters and hit a target within ten feet. Skunk spray irritates the eyes and nose and is difficult to wash away.

Tom Hanson is awesome! We're renovating and the roof is opened up, so here come the rats. So gross. I contacted Critter Control via their website, got a call back within the hour, and Tom was on property the next morning. He studied our situation and gave thorough, thoughtful advice—which did not include using their services! Instead, he taught us how to manage the situation until we can deploy a more permanent solution. When the house is sealed up again, Tom and Critter Control will return to ensure the complete removal of all unwanted creatures. Thank you, Tom and Critter Control. We appreciate your great service!
Cooper was punctual, knowledgeable, and reassuring. His trained eye noticed things we would not have seen. His investigation was thorough and answered all of questions. Highly recommend.

Critter Control has solved my problems for several years. I would recommend them to everyone. Their representatives are always prompt, knowledgeable, courteous and very helpful in solving problems.
Raymond was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He paid attention to detail. Good Job!! Thankyou!!
I am so glad I had Critter Control come and inspect my house! The problem was located and fixed immediately and since then I have not had any more problems with bats. Money well spent!!!
I connected Critter Control Orlando and was surprised, though elated that an actual person quickly answered. She was pleasant and efficiently scheduled a visit to my house to solve my varmit problem. The appointment was the next day. As arranged, I got a call from Ryan the next morning to tell me his eta. He arrived right on time and after explaining the procedure, got right to work. After a survey of our attic, he told us the problem and gave us a price to fix it. He explained exactly what would be done and an approximate number of visits it would take. I found Ryan to be easy to communicate with and an excellent customer relations person. I will be recommending Critter Control to my friends and neighbors.
We had a raccoon in the attic and this team of professional workers caught him after days of detective work. It was a pleasure working with them and having them at my house. I especially want to thank John and Kenzie!
After months of fighting moles in our yard ourselves and with the help of a landscaper, with no success, Critter Control caught a mole within a week. Very reasonably priced and very thorough. They’re the experts! We should have called them a lot sooner.
Justin was very professional and he and his team did the work quickly and thoroughly. This is a nice company to work with.
