If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Brunswick home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Ohio wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular
pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Brunswick, and I recommend the following:
Tom Raiber's Varmint Gitter
Cell Phone: 330-615-1600
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Medina County Animal Services: 330-225-9111
Tom Raiber's Varmint Gitter specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Ohio also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Tom Raiber's Varmint Gitter is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 330-615-1600
to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
- Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
- Fully Ohio and Medina County licensed and insured
- Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Tom Raiber's Varmint Gitter is a full-service Brunswick wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Brunswick pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Tom Raiber's Varmint Gitter performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Brunswick wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Ohio to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement
is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know.
Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Ohio law. We offer Brunswick raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Tom Raiber's Varmint Gitter. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live
and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Brunswick squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed.
Never, ever use poison! Most Brunswick exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Brunswick rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Ohio is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and
cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Brunswick pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Brunswick bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Brunswick trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Brunswick wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points
into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Tom Raiber's Varmint Gitter does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Tom Raiber's Varmint Gitter. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc.

. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks
. Tom Raiber's Varmint Gitter
also provides dead animal removal in Brunswick. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Brunswick snake removal - most of the snakes in Ohio are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Brunswick. And remember, we are a private business, not Medina County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 330-225-9111.
Medina County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Brunswick Wildlife Tip #1:
Should I hire a pro, or remove pigeons myself?
Pigeons can be one of the most persistent birds that can create a dilemma for you. Once they get cozy in some area it can get hard for you to exclude them from your property. It can be really hard to get them off your property because they get set in their ways by claiming the area with their waste, damaging and blocking necessary ventilation systems and defecating on anything that comes within their reach.
As soon as you detect the presence of pigeons on your property, take steps to remove them. You can either remove them by yourself or hire a professional service that can do the removal for you. Before making this decision you need to know what you are getting yourself into.
If you decide to make the exclusion yourself, there are plenty of ways to do it. You can use commercial off-the-rack products that claim safe removal or use poison to kill the pigeons. Make sure to use the product in specified way to avoid any damage to you and your property. Otherwise if you use a poison make sure to use it in such a way that you do not end up with a building full of pigeon carcasses. You can also use pigeon repellents like spikes and nets that are effective in deterring pigeons. Though all these techniques are very cost effective and compel you do this all by yourself there are other ways to eliminate pigeons.
Brunswick Wildlife Tip #2:
A professional or DIY for pigeon removal, which is better?
You can always hire professional help in extermination of pigeons and get all the work done hassle-free. This way you do not have to worry about doing all the work plus you need not get perturbed about the returning of the culprit. Even though professional help is a bit expensive but they often present a permanent solution to your pigeon invasion problems. They use a mixture of different techniques like shooting, trapping, poisoning and deterring devices that ensure removal effectiveness instantly. All this process is done by humane methods delaying/avoiding the shooting as far as possible. If poisoning is used the carcasses are disposed and cremated to prevent diseases from spreading.
Usually these professionals are fully trained in trapping and removing birds from places that are hard to reach. This is not easy but removing birds off your property might require you to shimmy into tight passages, jump into holes and much more. These technicians use specialized masks and equipment that make the removal easy. Once they have removed your unwanted guests, they help you in guiding how to make your home or building pigeon proof and installing specialized equipment that deter the entry of any kind of birds or pigeons.

Welcome to Ohio, the state where there aren't many mountains, but there are plenty of forests and fields for animals to enjoy. Not only does this state have a nice mixture of habitats, the landscape is generally universal when it comes to climate. Ohio does occasionally have a tornado, and it can have an earthquake or two, but most of the time the summers are hot and the winters are cold. This climate eliminates some of the heat-loving critters in the southern states, but it does keep those common creatures that live around homes comfortable.
The most common nuisance animals in Ohio are raccoons, snakes, bats, geese, swans, squirrels, woodpeckers, skunks, and opossums. Homes in this state are well-insulated against the cold winters, making them ideal locations of critters that like to climb into an attic. Rats are frequent visitors in the city areas, and homeowners without rats usually have a mouse or two. People living closer to nature, or those with an urban raccoon issue, sometimes find the animals up in the attic. This can be particularly problematic, especially because most raccoons in an attic have a littler of babies nearby. While not as common, the occasional opossum will also invade a home in Ohio from time to time.
Coyotes and black bears rule the food chain in this state, though the bears are less of a nuisance than the intelligent canines. Coyotes will hunt in packs, picking off livestock or entering suburbs where they feed on pets and harass small children. A determined coyote will even climb a fence if it is hungry enough to want the pet inside the yard. The black bears are nuisances mostly at campgrounds or in places where people leave garbage out overnight. The bear is an extremely strong animal, and a secured garbage can lid won't be enough to deter these predators.
In the river valleys, Ohio has a number of industrious beavers, otters, and muskrats. Homeowners living near streams may find themselves suddenly flooded due to a recently constructed dam. For the most part, muskrat concerns belong to the county. Government officials need to worry about dike walls being compromised by the burrowing muskrat. Due to the decent amount of precipitation this state receives annually, semi-aquatic animals tend to thrive in Ohio.
You can always call Tom Raiber's Varmint Gitter, any time of day, at 330-615-1600, for a price quote for Brunswick wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Brunswick, OH.
