If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Canton Youngstown Medina 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 Canton Youngstown Medina, and I recommend the following:
Wildlife & Environmental Solutions
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Stark County Animal Services: check blue pages
Wildlife & Environmental Solutions 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 Wildlife & Environmental Solutions 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 440-527-6300
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 Stark County licensed and insured
- Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)

- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Wildlife & Environmental Solutions is a full-service Canton Youngstown Medina wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Canton Youngstown Medina pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife & Environmental Solutions 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.
Canton Youngstown Medina 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 Canton Youngstown Medina raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife & Environmental Solutions. 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 Canton Youngstown Medina 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 Canton Youngstown Medina 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 Canton Youngstown Medina 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 Canton Youngstown Medina pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Canton Youngstown Medina 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 Canton Youngstown Medina trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Canton Youngstown Medina 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. Wildlife & Environmental Solutions does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife & Environmental Solutions. 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.

Canton Youngstown Medina Wildlife Tip #1:
What to do with caught skunk - If you catch a skunk, you need to be prepared to take care of the animal afterward. This means you have to have a plan. The skunk is either going to be relocated at least five miles away, or you're going to humanely kill it. What to do with a caught skunk is one of the reasons people hire a wildlife removal company instead of handling the situation on their own. A wildlife expert will come in and trap the animal. They will then relocate it or humanely euthanize it. This is usually much more than the average homeowner is prepared to do. If you have an area to relocate the skunk at least five miles away with ample shelter and water, all you need to focus on is proper trapping technique. To trap the skunk, you can use a traditional cage trap. These can be purchased in most farm stores. Set the trap on level ground near the areas where you have seen the skunk or noticed skunk activity. Bait the trap with marshmallows or cat food.
Canton Youngstown Medina Wildlife Tip #2:
Trapping Wild animals Tips - One of the first things to do when trying to trap an wild animal is to examine the area where it is causing the problem and to see where it is most active and whether there is one point that it is using repeatedly. If there is a weak point in the fence where it is getting through or a hole that it is going in and out of, this is often a good place to locate the trap. It is also frequently possible to look at signs in the soil itself to choose where to place the trap, as wild animals do have large claws that leave significant tracks in the dirt. As well as the importance of the location of the trap, another thing that can help catch the wild animal successfully is to use wooden boards or wire mesh to help guide the wild animal into the trap. Some wild animals that have become cage shy will often avoid these unless there is no option but to go into the trap. Bait can also be very helpful for those who are trying to catch an wild animal, with worms and maggots being attractive to wild animals, along with spoiled meat and fruit also being quite successful.

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.
