What is urban wildlife removal? It is basically the process of removing pigeons and other wildlife animals from your home and office.

If you suddenly found a bat inside your office, companies that offer urban wildlife removal are the services to call. Other animals that you will definitely need a professional removal service for include: birds, beavers, bees, coyotes, squirrels, foxes, groundhogs, hornets, mice, moles, opossums, raccoons, rats, turtles, snakes, and wasps. If there is an animal that you do not know that is invading your home, you also need to call professional animal removal too.

While the law does not require you to use these services, for your own sake, if you don’t want to ruin your meal, you need to have someone remove animals for you. This is especially true if you are dealing with dead animals. Really, nobody ever wants to remove animals (dead or alive) by themselves.

If you search for it online on a website like, you will see that there are many companies out there that offer wildlife removal. However, most of them do not have a nationwide presence and so you will want to narrow your search by typing the name of your local area after the word “removal”.

How much does it cost to hire animal removal services? Well, that really depends. But it is safe to say that while some of them offer fixed fees, others might charge hourly. It’s just our guess, though, and if you really want to know, you should call the different companies and ask about their rates.

Aside from protecting your appetite, there are actually many other reasons why you need to hire professional animal removal service. For one thing, professional removers would know how to get the animals out of your premises in the most gentle way. Also, since the first thing they do on the job is to determine entry points, you can prevent further animal invasion by sealing entryways and holes.

When it comes to choosing the removal service to hire, there are several things you need to consider. One is the license and insurance. All states require for these companies to be trained and licensed. Insurance is also another must-have. This is not surprising when you consider that wildlife animals are basically an unpredictable bunch and you will never know what might happen as they are being removed. They might just destroy your property in the fight to stay in it.

Because of this, you will want to make sure that the removal company you hire has liability insurance as well as warranties offering to repair any damage, or replace insulation, for any damage that occurs while on the job.

We mentioned before that it is highly likely that the different removal companies have different pricing methods for their services. In order not to have any surprises, make sure that you get a written estimate that you can refer to when it’s time to pay.

All in all, finding animal removal services is not hard, it’s choosing the right one that is.
