Wildlife Animal Removal – Opossum, Raccoons & Squirrels in NYC

Raccoons, Squirrels, and Opossums Humanely Removed

Raccoons, squirrels, and opossums are the most common wildlife we are called upon to remove in New York City. Unfortunately, they can be dangerous and can cause significant damage to your property. In addition, squirrels, opossums, and raccoons may also harbor diseases, and parasites and create an unsanitary environment that brings other pests as well. Metro Pest Control is an animal removal industry leader in humane wildlife removal. Our animal removal process consists of three steps. 

Our expert humane animal removal team begins with a thorough inspection of your property and structure.

We will identify the animal during the inspection. Having an in-depth knowledge of the animals we trap and their habits helps us to employ our traps in optimal positions to expedite the animal removal process.

For the next several days, the traps are monitored until we are successful.

Humane Raccoon Removal In NYC

Raccoons are nocturnal animals that eat just about anything. Garbage, plants, and even other animals are all on the raccoon's menu. They are incredibly smart and resourceful animals and they will typically nest in secluded areas such as your attic, under your porch, garage, etc... 

Raccoons can be aggressive and are armed with a mouth full of very sharp teeth. If you have a raccoon on your property you should stay far away as they harbor many diseases and parasites that are very harmful to your health. They can be easily identified by what appears to be a bandit-like mask on their face and they may grow to be up to two feet in length.

Squirrel Removal In NYC

Squirrels are expert climbers and possess acrobatic skills that help them easily gain access to their desired structure. They are most active during the day and usually very destructive, commonly gnawing through wooden beams and wiring.

Squirrels are also very determined in their efforts to nest and escape from the cold by entering your attic or building.

Opossum Removal In NYC

Opossums are commonly found all over New York City and the surrounding areas. Well adapted to urban life, they are slow-moving marsupials. Nocturnal creatures, opossums will take shelter almost anywhere, including garbage cans, under porches, attics, and more. They will eat just about anything including garbage, fruits, worms, grubs, and grains. Opossums are famous for playing dead when threatened, an adaptation to compensate for their lack of speed. They have a pointed snout, and a long pointed tail, and can grow to 15 or 20 inches in length. Although not typically aggressive, opossums are armed with razor-sharp teeth that can deliver a painful bite which would require a doctor’s visit, as they can be hosts to many diseases, including rabies.
