Between 1997 and April 2006, only one case of rabies, a rabid raccoon, was identified on Staten Island.  By December 2006, 35 animals had tested positive for rabies on Staten Island, and there were 49 cases in the year 2013.  Nine out of ten rabies cases in New York’s 5 boroughs came from Staten Island.  The animals that tested positive were raccoons, skunks, cats, opossums and bats.  

We solve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Staten Island and surrounding areas. Give us 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.

Many of the projects we solve involve raccoon families in attics and chimneys, mud swallow nests on stucco, woodpeckers drilling siding, voles and gophers destroying lawns, rats or squirrels thumping and bumping around inside walls and in attics, bat infestations, skunks stealing pet food 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 noise and commotion and smell. Baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds; raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; 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 my professional wildlife removal operators and I 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, pigeon waste cleanup, bat guano removal, mouse droppings, 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.

I have been in the professional wildlife control business for many years. My favorite stories and experiences are removing bats from schools and churches.

Staten Island Wild Animal Control News, Stories, Events and Alerts

Staten Island Animal Control

As the least developed of New York City\'s five boroughs, Staten Island has more natural land for wild animals. Not so long ago, the area teemed with animals such as beaver, black bear, and wild cats. These animals have long since been gone from Staten Island, but many other animals have remained and even thrived in the area since humans built up large developments.

Raccoons are a common sighting around Staten Island. They become adjusted to humans quite quickly. They are known for their bold nature, rummaging through garbage cans, stealing pet food, and ripping through siding, fascia, and roofing just to gain access to attics, crawlspaces and wall spaces. These are perfect dens for them. Discovering raccoons in and around your property can spell disaster if you fail to take action. Raccoons are a common carrier of rabies, and spread other diseases through their feces. They often carry mites, fleas or ticks that can infest their den area. They are aggressive animals and bite and scratch, presenting a danger to humans and pets. If you discover one or more raccoons living in your building, it is best to contact a wildlife removal expert immediately. They are experienced at humanely removing the animals from the area, making sure that all animals, including babies, are removed. They will inspect the area to locate and seal up all entrance points. And, they are skilled at cleaning and sanitizing the area.

Other Staten Island wildlife that are common household nuisances are: mice, rats, pigeons, snakes, opossums, skunks, moles, rabbits, gophers and bats. Like raccoons, each animal presents a health and safety danger to humans and animals and should be removed professionally. Your wildlife removal technician can quickly assess the problem, remove the animals, locate and seal up holes or other entrance points to your building, clean and sanitize the area properly, and, in many cases, install barriers or deterrents to prevent the animals from returning to your home.

Bats on Staten Island

The most common bats on Staten Island are Little Brown Bats and Big Brown Bats, both of which are cave-dwelling, and the Red Bat, which is tree-dwelling.  Staten Island has had a decline in bat populations due to loss of wooded habitat, use of insecticides which killed off food sources, and the white-nose syndrome.  In the fall and winter, cave-dwelling bats move to hibernation sites, which may include attics, belfries, eaves, chimneys and walls.
