People Call Professionals in to Deal with Rat Problems in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania

Residents in Allegheny County want to get rid of rats.

We've been living with rats for years. They are in our attic, walls and garage. Iíve probably killed 40 or 50 over the years, using snap traps, glue paper & the Rat Zapper 2000. I havenít used any poisons, because I have two dogs and one cat. Keeping my pets alive is more important to me than getting rid of the rats. However, Iím at my witís end over those darn rodents! The latest problem is that they seem to have urinated so much above one of our bathrooms that the smell has seeped through the ceiling, causing a constant nauseating stench. I would like to have that problem repaired, the rats removed and their entrances sealed up. I do not care whether the rats are captured humanely or killed. My only concern is that whatever method is used be completely safe for my pets and family. John A.

There are rats in my crawl space under my house and they have come into the house. Not sure if more than one but evidence of eaten food and droppings. Help me get them out. Wendy S.

I think there are rats (maybe mice) behind my shower. It is along a wall that abuts my neighborís yard which has several fruit trees that he never harvests. I want them to go away but don't want to use chemicals if at all possible. Can you help? Allison W.



The Allegheny County Animal Control Services of Pennsylvania, PA

Lost pets, barking dogs, loose cats, cows, horses, goats, sheep, or other domestic, farm or ranch animal issues need to be reported to The Allegheny County Animal Control Services: 412-255-2036 . They work with domestic animals and can provide information about licensing, vaccinations, lost pets, etc. Allegheny County does not offer free wildlife animal control services, nor do cities within Allegheny County .

We are professional wildlife removal contractors offering animal control solutions based in Pennsylvania.We pride ourselves on our professional trapping services, and on quality snake, bird, and animal removal.

HSS Wildlife Control and Animal Removal #6439 removes all sorts of wild animals and birds from residential and commercial properties, including bats, snakes, pigeons, skunks, raccoons, swallows, woodpeckers, voles, beavers, and rodents of every kind. Wild animals on your property can damage vegetation and structures and reduce property value. They also bring disease and a host of insect pests with them, which can adversely affect you, your family, and your pets. In your walls, in your attic, or on your roof wild animals can keep you up at night and their urine and droppings create a horrific smell. After my technicians and I perform wild animal removal, we can provide cleanup, sanitization, and deodorization to help restore your property; we can also provide exclusion services to keep your wildlife problem from recurring. Whether the problem is a colony of bats in a building, raccoons in the attic, or destructive behaviors of critters such as squirrels, gophers and pigeons, we can solve it.

We resolve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Allegheny County and surrounding areas. Give me a call if you need expert animal removal and/or live wildlife trapping. We can also perform an inspection of your property to evaluate the problem.

The situations we resolve and main trapping and removal services we provide are: raccoon families in attics and chimneys, woodpeckers drilling siding. mud swallow nests on stucco, rats or squirrels thumping and bumping around inside walls and in attics, voles and gophers destroying lawns, skunks stealing pet food, bat infestations, and snakes living in crawlspaces and stone walls.

Along with physical damage and disease, wild animals also bring along disturbance and nuisance with all their commotion and smell. Raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds; skunk smell takes the cake, but have you ever smelled a dead animal in your ventilation system? We have seen much, much more than these problems, but that is a general idea of the kinds of problems that I and my professional wildlife removal operators are prepared to solve.

Not only do my technicians and I trap and remove problem wild animals, we do a lot of other dirty work, too. Don’t hesitate to call us for dead animal removal, bat guano cleanup, pigeon waste removal, mouse dropping cleanup, decontamination, repairs, above ground and below ground rodent slick fencing, odor control for skunk spray, and the like. We are a full service pest control company with a wide range of animal control solutions.

For pigeon and bird control, bat removal, or relief from other pest animals, call our wildlife management experts. Many nuisance wildlife companies offer critter capture and control; our wildlife operators provide professional pest wild animal management. We remove the following AND MORE:

  • Raccoons from attics and chimneys

Allegheny County Wild Animal Control News, Stories, Events and Alerts

Allegheny County, Pennsylvania has skunk problems

Residents in Allegheny County want solutions to skunks and their smell.

Last night @ 3am I was awakened by "noises". I got up to investigate. The noises were coming from under our front porch---I began to smell SKUNK!!! By the time I went outside to check things out it was clear that there was a fight going on and that someone had sprayed under the porch. I proceeded to turn on our garden hose and saturate the entire porch until I saw one skunk emerge out from under our porch. We have been placing mothballs around and under our porch and deck to discourage them from nesting under it. Additionally, we have been working to control our rodent problem and have monthly treatments for fleas, silverfish, ants etc... We have a problem with a skunk spray under our porch (cedar) and therefore we have a skunk problem. We began to notice the holes you describe being dug in the yard mid-summer last year. Candace B.

We just moved into a new house and our dogs have been trying to get at something under the house for a few weeks now. Well, this morning they found it. A skunk's nest and both got sprayed badly. We read about the hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and soap mix and it seemed to clean them up pretty good. We've caged our dogs until after we get home from work. Mark H.

Skunk was seen at night going into a little burrow, next to the foundation of the front porch. Grant E.
