Ehrlich specialists work hard to keep your home pest-free.

What is wildlife control?

Wildlife control involves the capture and removal of nuisance pests on your property. A nuisance animal is any critter that is not considered a pest, such as bats, chipmunks, raccoons, squirrels, and more. Wildlife management is a niche skill within the pest control industry and should be left to the experts.

Please contact us immediately if you need any wildlife removed from your property. In addition to the possibility of getting scratched or bitten, there are also many health risks associated with wildlife animals and their droppings that can result in various viruses and diseases.

What are Ehrlich's wildlife removal services?

There are multiple methods used to control various wildlife critters, and when dealing with wildlife, no two methods are the same. Your specialist will use either a trapping and release method, exclusion, or sometimes, both, depending on the type of wildlife you are trying to remove.

Trapping and release

We offer trapping services for all mammals except for bats. Depending on the type of wildlife, we will check the traps daily to ensure a humane capture. The trapping method will usually only be used if the wildlife pest is a nuisance. If this isn’t the case, we will use exclusion methods to control the critter.


Our exclusion methods involve sealing any cracks, gaps, holes, and crevices in your home to close off entry points that wildlife may use to gain entry to your property. This will help to control the wildlife and keep them from infesting your yard. In a lot of instances, we will combine our exclusion services with our trapping services to close off other openings that the nuisance wildlife could use to regain entry to the structure.

One-way doors

Depending on the type of pest you are dealing with, we may combine our exclusion services with the use of one-way doors. One-way doors allow the animal, usually squirrels, to exit the structure it has infested, but not re-enter.

Common wildlife we remove

As stated above, wildlife includes any animal that is not considered a pest. Here at Ehrlich, we control and remove the following wildlife animals:

While maintaining the highest levels of pest risk management for our customers, we always stay aware of many non-target species among urban and rural wildlife. As unique elements of our national flora, they need protection, and several species in the United States are protected to varying degrees by legislation. Our specialists adhere to all state laws and regulations regarding any protected species.

Let us identify the wildlife on your property

We do not recommend trying to control any wildlife pests on your property by yourself. Managing wildlife pests in your yard or home should be left to the experts. The specialists at Ehrlich are educated in wildlife identification and proper removal. After a thorough inspection, your specialist will know the type of animal you are dealing with, which is crucial in deciding on the method for control.
