Raccoons on the Rampage in Fairfax County, Virginia
Fairfax County Virginia, like many semi-urban and suburban areas, has a thriving raccoon population. This comes as a surprise to many people who do not expect to find a masked bandit of this type breaking into their attic or sheds. It is true, however, and raccoon removal is a common necessity even in ï¿½niceï¿½ areas like Fairfax County.
These animals are adaptable and intelligent and have adjusted from streams and forests to trashcans and chimneys. People provide such a comfortable habitat that the suburban population density of these animals often exceeds the rural population density. While this might seem like a wildlife success story, it comes at a price.
Human/animal conflict is a threat to both. The life expectancy of suburban dwellers is lower because of cars and encounters with dogs along with other threats and the disease rate is high. Raccoon removal is the only viable option when the animals move into human homes and businesses.
Often it starts off harmless enough. People notice an animal wandering across their property one night and it pauses to eat spilled birdseed from the feeder. Soon, it comes up on the porch to eat pet food or even table scraps. Next thing you know, the owners start to hear crying sounds under the porch or thumping in the attic. The animal was being treated so nice, it decided to move in and now the people are faced with a choice: rampaging raccoons or raccoon removal.
I say ï¿½rampagingï¿½ because that is what the creatures do. They begin to demand foodï¿½scratching at doors and windows, forcing their way through dog doors. If they encounter domestic pets, they are willing to fight for what they now consider their territory. They modify the attic to suit their own purposeï¿½puling loose wiring, pooping in the insulation, tearing off vents or soffit for easier access. No group of rowdy rock stars have ever trashed a hotel as successfully as these critters can your attic.
We can help you with raccoon removal in Fairfax County and the surrounding areas. Donï¿½t let these critters rampage through your home and destroy your property. We can get rid of the raccoons, clean up the mess and show you how to keep them from coming back.

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;

Fairfax County and surrounding areas. Give me a call if you need expert animal removal and/or live wildlife trapping.

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?

Fairfax County Wild Animal Control News, Stories, Events and Alerts
Rodents in Fairfax, Virginia senior apartments
Residents in a senior apartment complex in Fairfax, Virginia, say they have had a rodent problem for a while, now, but now the rats are getting aggressive. One resident was attacked by a rat as she was throwing garbage down a trash chute. The rat attacked her and left deep scratches on her chest. A wheel-chair-bound resident is frustrated by the layer of rodent droppings between his refrigerator and cabinet. Other residents have found that rats or mice have chewed through paper towels, toilet paper, left rodent droppings on kitchen countertops and floors, and they make enough noise in the walls at night to disturb the residents as they try to sleep.
Fairfax County, Virginia Pigeon Control
When the Virginia Department of Historic Resources has to issue a bulletin on Pigeon Pest Control and Decontamination in Historic Buildings, you know the problem is serious. Historic buildings are found all over Virginia and in places like Fairfax County, the number of these buildings and the number of pigeons come together in a way that is particularly difficult.
The State recommends that you not waste your time, money and energy on pigeon control products that do not work. You will see many advertisements promoting products for products such as synthetic snakes, owls, or other predators; repellent gels; ultrasonic devices; strobe lights; and electrified wires. The State knows that pigeon control is best performed by experts in wildlife removal and prevention that know how to exclude the birds, install the correct repellents and decontaminate buildings that have been infested.
Human activity is one of the most difficult variables in a pigeon control project. People insist on feeding flocks of pigeons, attracting them to an area and providing the means for the population to grow. Food causes pigeons to thrive. While well-intended, feeding flocks means that there will be more pigeon control issues in the area in the future.
While removal, prevention and decontamination procedures can be expensive, they are necessary if a building is infested. Until pigeon control is complete, an infested building cannot be used by humans. The ongoing health risks are too high.
If you are in an area in Fairfax County that has pigeon problems, I suggest you get a pigeon control inspection before your building is infested. Your professional technician can recommend maintenance and products that really work to prevent future problems. If it is already infested, a Wildlife Control Operator can custom make a pigeon control plan just for you and your building, cleaning up the aesthetic difficulties as well as the health hazards and returning your building to you clean and safe.
