Q&A with Local Branch Manager

What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?
Squirrels, flying squirrels, bats, raccoons, skunks, woodpeckers, opossums, chipmunks, moles/voles, snakes, groundhogs, rats, and mice are commonly found throughout the Hudson River Valley.

How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?
Fluctuations in temperature can greatly affect the wildlife activity in any given area. Contrary to popular belief, not all animals hibernate in the wintertime, which is important to note for the bitter cold winters experienced in the Hudson River Valley. Animals that are still active during the winter are grey squirrels, flying squirrels, woodpeckers, raccoons, rats, mice, moles, and voles, just to name a few. As temperatures increase from winter to spring, these among other animals become more active and more likely to bring attention to themselves while in your home.

What are some common signs of nuisance wildlife activity?
Chewing/gnawing damage above or around the gutter line. Dips or burrows underneath fences, decks, and sheds. Irregular noises in the ceiling and walls during dawn and dusk (i.e. scratching, squeaking, growling, and footsteps). Holes chewed into cardboard or paper food containers in pantries and basements. Disturbed insulation with trails or droppings dispersed throughout.

Any prevention tips for residents in your area?
An inspection and/or trapping by a professionally licensed New York NWCO (Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator) is always recommended before sealing up any entry points to ensure no animals are unlawfully sealed inside the home with no exit.

When should homeowners call Critter Control?
Ideally, one should call and have exclusion done before there is a problem. If you have a neighbor that recently has had an animal problem, now is the time to get the work done before the critters decide to move into your home once they've been sealed out of theirs. Otherwise, at the first sign of any animal being inside the home, you should call Critter Control and set up an inspection. The longer you wait the more damage an animal can do and the more expensive the solution may become.
