York County, Pennsylvania says Goodbye to Rats

York County, Pennsylvania residents want to get rid of rats.

Dead rat in ceiling from poison I put out in attic. Can't get to area w/out cutting hole in ceiling. Smell has been several weeks and it doesn't seem to be going away. Need removal of rat or rats from ceiling. Possible hole in roof. Possible roof repair. Currently snap traps set in attic and poison. Kim J.

At times, there is a very fishy smell in the front room of our apartment. The smell only comes around after the apartment's front door, and the building's front door is opened at the same time. We suspect a dead rat either in the wall, or in the small space between our building and our neighbor's building. Richard W.

I believe we have a dead rat or dead rats causing an odor in our attic. We poisoned them and believe they have died, but not sure where. Travis B.



The York 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 York County Animal Control Services: . They work with domestic animals and can provide information about licensing, vaccinations, lost pets, etc. York County does not offer free wildlife animal control services, nor do cities within York 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.

Pickel Wildlife Services #1060 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 York 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
  • Bats from attics and eaves
  • Voles that dig and tear up lawns and destroy root systems

York County, Pennsylvania Wants to Get Rid of Skunks and Their Smell

York County, Pennsylvania has skunk problems.

At least 1 skunk, possibly two are living under my deck. My dog has been sprayed 2 times in the last month or so. Sean S.

I have a skunk or skunks that digs under the fence almost every night. I have blocked the entry sites with bricks, but it just moves to a new spot. It appears to travel through several back yards before getting to mine. Don T.

There is a skunk living under our home/porch. There has been a smell since last winter. We saw the large skunk last weekend and believe he is living at our home. My husband went out in the dark to check on something outside on our deck. He looked to the left and saw this very large skunk looking at him and then turned and waddled off. My husband was very shocked and came in the house quickly to alert us that he finally saw the "stinker". We see 2 entry points in our lattice work around our deck. What should we do? Barb D.
