We a complete job, from start to finish. We remove wildlife humanely and effectively, using the proper traps, tools, and techniques for each unique animal and situation.
When we encounter animals inside a house, we inspect every part of the house, from ground level to every part of the roof, to identify all the areas of entry, and all vulnerable
areas, and we perform professional repairs, with guarantee, to seal entry holes shut. We inspect inside the attic to find any damage or biohazard, and provide full cleaning services. We offer attic decontamination, poison-free and permanent rodent control,
bat colony exclusion, bird prevention, snake removal, dead animal removal and odor control, and more.
Female raccoons that are nesting will look for ways
to enter your home. They usually will look for ways into
your attic, garage, or shed. In some cases, simple traps
will catch them, but in other cases, the mother will create
the nest out of reach or view. Our team specializes in trapping
and removing raccoons as well as other Delaware wildlife!

Mole trapping: how to trap a mole.
Right at the start I have to tell you all that there is no such thing as a mole trap that would catch the
animal alive, moles live underground and at the time of writing no one has come up with a trap that works
underground and keeps the animal alive. That means that all the traps sold for mole control are lethal.
There are three main types of traps currently on the market for use against moles. Before you can even
contemplate using a trap, you need to have a place to put it, you have to know which tunnels the mole is
actively using, because placing a trap in an inactive feeding tunnel is a waste of time and effort, without
going into huge detail look for a tunnel that is against the edge of a solid object, like a sidewalk or a
house wall. These tunnels the mole generally digs as permanent walkways.
The three types of traps mostly used against moles are:
1. Spear traps, you set a spear trap above an active tunnel, squash the tunnel in and set the spear trap on
top of it, when the mole crawls through the tunnel it will attempt to clear the caved in area. When it touches
the trap the spears will slam downward, impaling and killing the mole.
2. Scissor traps, you set a scissor trap over an active surface tunnel, again the tunnel is squashed in with
the trap blades either side of the cave in. It works very similar to a spear trap except in this case the blades
snap together from the points into the middle crushing the mole.
3. The last kind of trap is called a paper clip trap, you actually set these traps inside the tunnel preferably
back to back, so you need at least two, the reason for this is so they are facing both directions. When the mole
crawls through its tunnel as it reaches the trap it will hit a pin that is holding the trap open, when the pin is
hit the trap will slam down on the mole, killing it instantly.
If you find your trapping efforts are not working then it is most likely because your traps are in the wrong place,
remember the key to successful trap placement is that the tunnel that you placed the trap on has to be actively being
used by the mole.
