Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Warrenton, VA

Warrenton Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Warrenton home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Virginia 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 Warrenton, and I recommend the following:

Critter Control
Cell Phone: 571-364-0162

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Fauquier County Animal Services: (540) 422-8750



Critter Control specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Virginia also has a documented problem with bats in buildings, and Critter Control 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 571-364-0162 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 Virginia and Fauquier 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


Critter Control is a full-service Warrenton wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Warrenton pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Critter Control 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.

  Warrenton wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Virginia 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 Virginia law. We offer Warrenton raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Critter Control. 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 Warrenton 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 Warrenton 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 Warrenton rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
  Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Virginia 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 Warrenton pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Warrenton 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 Warrenton trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Warrenton 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. Critter Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Critter Control. 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. Read about how to get rid of opossums. 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. Critter Control also provides dead animal removal in Warrenton. 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 Warrenton snake removal - most of the snakes in Virginia are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Warrenton. And remember, we are a private business, not Fauquier County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (540) 422-8750. Fauquier County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Warrenton Wildlife Tip #1:
Will a high pitch sound deterrent machine work against armadillos?

Most companies declare that we get this device though it may seem that they work initially, but the consequences are not proven, nor their effectiveness.

We've already tried everything we thought to get rid of armadillos. We started with plants, mothballs and ammonia, now we go to machines with high sounds. We need to be familiar with every technique just to make sure we do not miss one way to get rid of these destructive animals.

Generally, sound insulation can work well, but only for short periods, the information is that they cannot solve your difficulty for a long time. However, as opposed to poison or extra chemical repellents, high-tech sound isolation is not harmful to the environment and is not only useful to armadillos, but also to other rodents as well as pests. The sound is not dangerous for pets, such as dogs and cats, but can be problematic for family rodents such as guinea pigs, rabbits and hamsters. That's why you always need to check the manufacturer's warning signs just to make sure of your safety.

Control devices

Of course, it would also be advisable to examine if this devices are effective. These devices are ideal and do not smell, as opposed to ammonia and mothballs.

Ultrasonic devices for animal control

This unit emits high-frequency sound waves that interfere with pests and the flora and fauna. It is used to irritate them and confuse them, but keep in mind that they are not accustomed to harming them. It will only cause discomfort and anxiety.

Sonic control devices for animals

This device helps to pass through a series of frequencies that include human sound noise, sufficient to alert these animals and clean the area.

Sound devices, effective or not?

It is known that armadillos have a more functional sense of smell and hearing. Therefore, devices near them are not disturbed in any way. This, of course, makes it difficult to expel at all costs. So, as far as I am not saying, this product is not going to work. Although there is a wide range of high-end machines that we can try to buy on the market, the purchase itself will cost a fortune.

In spite of sound machines, it will continue digging and digging in its own. It will enter the rotten body and rotten fruit of your waste. You can also try by having neat and well-maintained premises this will help a lot from armadillos.

1. Empty garbage containers properly
2. Remove all foods
3. Build sustainable fences, especially fence with steel cable

As the old saying says: "Bad things are easier prevent from happening rather than to get a resolution. Try all natural ways to get rid of them.

Warrenton Wildlife Tip #2:


Virginia Wildlife Information:

Virginia State bird: Northern cardinal
State mammal: Virginia big-eared bat
State fish: Brook trout, striped bass
State insect: Tiger swallowtail butterfly

Virginia is attached to the Chesapeake Bay, and because of this, it has a large coastal plain that extends inland, passing the bay's tributaries and eventually ending at the swelling of rocky foothills. Those foothills spread into the Blue Ridge Mountains, an extension of the Appalachian range. The state has an abundance of carbonated rock which has led to the creation of thousands of cave systems. Ten of those systems are currently open to the public, leaving about 3,990 on private land or currently uncharted. Along with the caves comes a variety of bat species, including the big brown bat, Brazilian free-tailed bat, eastern red bat, evening bat, gray bat, and the hoary bat, to name a few. Caves are the perfect habitat for these animals, which can either migrate or hibernate in the colder months. While Virginia is not prone to particularly harsh winters, the cave systems make a good, temperature-controlled place for hibernation.

Bats, though numerous, are only a small portion of the animal population in Virginia. The state has a number of predators including black bears, bobcats, cougars, and coyotes. This state doesn't have huge issues with the larger predators mainly because of how mountainous and wild the habitat has remained. The coastal plain is much more covered in people's homes, and this is where critters like squirrels and raccoons love to play. Because of the amount of trees in this state, it doesn't take long for a vertical-loving animal to find a way into a house. While raccoons and squirrels are definitely on the list of nuisance animals, they are among a score of others including woodchucks, skunks, porcupines, and opossums.

The state is also perfect for birds, and Virginia has a population of golden eagles, a large avian that tends to live in isolated settings across the globe. Not much research has been done on the golden eagle, and Virginia wildlife authorities hope they can study the growing population and shed some light on the species.

The fresh water feeding into the Chesapeake Bay provides a good ecosystem for amphibians and reptiles, and Virginia has a number of water-loving snakes including the cottonmouth and the common water snake. The state also has glass lizards, a snake-like creature, and the only limbless lizard in the United States.

You can always call Critter Control, any time of day, at 571-364-0162, for a price quote for Warrenton wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Warrenton, VA.
