My Background as an Outdoorsman

I was born and raised in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, and have always enjoyed spending time in the outdoors. Being in the suburbs just outside of Philadelphia, I always had a choice between city life and activities in more rural surroundings. It seemed that I preferred spending my time exploring a local creek than hanging out at the local shopping mall.

My father and uncles were all outdoors enthusiasts and took me out hunting, fishing and even snake catching as much as possible. It wasn't long before I was an accomplished woodsman and fisherman with a serious passion for all wildlife. As years went by I learned more about wildlife habits, animal tracks and signs.  Animals like the Whitetail Deer, Eastern Wild Turkey, Red Fox and raccoons are quite plentiful in Delaware County and areas just to our north. The wild turkey was probably my favorite quarry of all and one of the most challenging of Pennsylvania's game animals. Calling in a gobbling spring turkey is a thrill like no other, and with some practice I was able to fool many beautiful wild turkeys.

My very best catch of all I would have to say is my lovely wife Terri.  At the young age of fifteen who could have known we were so right for each other. Terri was raised fishing and camping with her parents and learned to appreciate wildlife and nature as much as I did. Everything in my life seemed to be falling into place especially when I discovered a new career in wildlife control.  Years past I was trapping raccoons and fox as a hobby, and now to have a job doing what comes natural to me is the best. Squirrels, bats, skunks, raccoons, and groundhogs are now on top of my list of quarry. To get the chance to help wildlife by preventing human animal conflicts couldn't make me happier.

The Delaware 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 Delaware County Animal Control Services: 610-522-1113 . They work with domestic animals and can provide information about licensing, vaccinations, lost pets, etc. Delaware County does not offer free wildlife animal control services, nor do cities within Delaware 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.

Wildlife and Pest Control Technologies #6460 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 Delaware 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.

Porcupine Mechanic in Delaware County, Pennsylvania

Last year I had a porcupine eating my car. Don't laugh, it wasn't funny at all. I replaced the gas and brake lines on my car while battling the creature, and who knows what might have happened if I hadn't got professional help.

Anyway, here is the story. I went out one morning to get in my car and noticed a dark spot under the car. I checked it out and found it was brake fluid. "How did that happen?" I asked myself. I took it to the shop and got new lines. The mechanics didn't say anything was particularly strange about it.

About a week later I got in the car, and smelled gas. I got out and took a look under the car and the gas line was leaking! Now, that was really strange. I hadn't been driving on rough terrain or anything and couldn't figure out what had happened. Again, to the shop. This time I specifically asked them to look at the line and let me know what was going on.

The mechanic came out sort of shaking his head and showed me the line. "I don't know what to tell you, but this thing looks CHEWED." I looked at the line myself. Sure enough, it looked for all the world like tooth marks. But, what would eat a gas line? "Well, we did find this on the inside of your right front tire." He held out a grey and black pin—no, not a pin, a porcupine quill!

You have got to be kidding. A porcupine is eating my car? I went home and started to research porcupines. They chew on all kinds on things. I hadn't noticed the animal because they usually work at night. I decided to try to catch the animal in the act. I stayed up all night on Friday and sure enough, in the middle of the night a big pincushion came waddling across my yard and went towards the car again. I ran outside and started towards the animal and then thought better of it. Did I really want to get in an argument with a porcupine?

Monday, I called the Pennsylvania Game Commission and they basically told me that porcupine removal was my problem. The local dog catcher just laughed. I would have to figure out how to get rid of porcupines on my own. I did some research online and found out about Wildlife Control Operators. These companies specialize in removing pest wild animals from people's lives.

I called them. They couldn't tell me why the animal had chosen my car, but they did know what to do about it. They came out and were able to quickly get rid of the porcupine. My car and I are very happy to live our own peaceful lives again.
