Most birds in Chesterfield and surrounding areas of Virginia are protected by the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act. The general exception is pigeons, European starlings, and English (House) sparrows. These nuisance birds often get into gable vents, chimneys, attics, soffits, bathroom exhaust vents, dryer vents, fireplaces and other areas of a home or business.

Groundhogs in our area are also known as woodchucks and whistle pigs. They often dig holes and burrow underneath sheds, garages, decks and porches. Not only is their digging unsightly, but the holes they create can become trip/fall hazards for people and pets, damage equipment, and undermine the stability of some structures.

Chesterfield VA Opossum Removal
The opossum is the only marsupial in North America. It is commonly referred to as a possum. The opossum has many interesting features. It has 50 teeth, more than any North American land mammal. Its hairless tail is prehensile and is used for grasping branches, balancing and carrying nesting material. The opossum does not hang upside down by the tail, a common misconception. The opossum also has opposable thumbs on its hind feet for holding onto branches. Their diet includes all types of bugs and insects including cockroaches, crickets and beetles. They love snails. They also eat mice and rats. The nocturnal opossum is usually attracted to our neighborhoods by the availability of water, pet food left out at night and overripe, rotting fruit that has fallen from trees. Opossums love to enter the crawl spaces of our homes and business – often entering through a damaged crawl space door or through a crawlspace door that has inadvertently been left open. If you think that an animal has entered your crawlspace through an open door you SHOULD NOT close the door until you are satisfied that there is no animal present. Trapping an animal inside a crawl space can lead to damaged insulation and duct work as the animal tries to get out or the animal could eventually die in the crawl space creating other problems.
Chesterfield VA Raccoon Removal
Raccoons in Chesterfield VA are masters at entering homes and businesses – often undetected. These “bandits” often live in uncapped chimney flues where they raise their young. Pound for pound raccoons are one of the most powerful wild animals in Chesterfield. They can chew holes in roofs and soffits, damage attic vents and the duct work for HVAC systems in our attic, and damage insulation. They are excellent climbers and their dexterity is truly amazing. Raccoons often enter homes at night through unsecured pet doors and are attracted to pet food left outside for our pets. They are also masters at opening trash cans and entering dumpsters. Let our Chesterfield VA raccoon removal experts trap and remove your nuisance raccoons.
Chesterfield VA Skunk Removal
Striped skunks in Chesterfield Va are mostly nocturnal and are very active at night. They live in dens or burrows in protected areas and will either dig their own or use one dug by foxes or groundhogs. Their favorite digging and denning sites seem to be under garages, sheds, decks and porches. They often dig small conical shaped holes in yards when searching for insects. Skunks mate in late Winter or early Spring and a litter is usually comprised of 4 to 7 baby skunks. Skunks protect themselves by spraying an oily substance. Skunks can spray up to fifteen feed and their odor can be detected up to a mile away. Skunks in Chesterfield Virginia are the primary carrier of the rabies virus. Chesterfield VA skunk removal can be tricky for inexperienced persons. We are often called by homeowners attempting to trap some other animal and inadvertently trapping a skunk – the problem for them then becomes how do I dispose of the skunk. Our Chesterfield VA wildlife control professionals know how to safely trap skunks and remove them without the skunks spraying – in most cases. If your dog or cat gets sprayed by a skunk we can help with skunk odor removal. The best approach if you encounter a skunk is to not move towards the skunk and refrain from making sudden movements.
Chesterfield VA Snake Removal
Most people in Chesterfield VA are deathly afraid of snakes. We receive over 100 snake calls a year from people who think they have seen a copperhead snake. The truth of the matter is that most of these snakes end up being a common Rat snake. There are about 34 different species of snakes in Virginia, but only three are venomous – the copperhead snake, the cottonmouth snake — also known as a water moccasin, and the timber rattlesnake. Most people incorrectly refer to snakes as as being poisonous, but the correct terminology is venomous snakes. Copperhead snakes are located throughout Virginia and are the only venomous snake native to Chesterfield County VA. The timber rattlesnake is located primarily in the mountainous regions of Western Virginia, and the water moccasin snakes are located in the Tidewater region of Virginia. When compared to the other venomous snakes in VA the copperhead snake is the most common and least venomous snake of the three. Snakes in Chesterfield VA can often be control through habitat modification – snake repellents DO NOT work. Snakes serve a legitimate purpose in our ecosystem and should never be indiscriminately killed. It’s illegal to kill a snake in Virginia unless it poses a safety threat. Illegally killing a snake is a Class 2 misdemeanor in Virginia punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and up to six months in jail. Prosecutions are rare, though. Almost any human-snake interaction can be safely resolved by simply LEAVING IT ALONE. All snakes by nature are skittish and have no interest in having a confrontation with a human. Our Chesterfield Virginia snake removal experts can safely and humanely remove snakes from your home or property. We can also provide snake assessments of your Chesterfield County property and make habitat modification recommendations. We can also set snake traps if necessary.
Chesterfield VA Squirrel Removal
Squirrel removal and control is one of the most common calls we receive in Chesterfield VA. Squirrels in the wild typically breed twice a year, but in the control environment of your home squirrels can breed year round. Squirrels are rodents and as such they constantly chew to keep their front teeth worn down. Once they enter your home through attic vents, soffits, roof vents, and damaged or rotten wood they usually set up residence in your attic. Squirrels in attic is very common in Chesterfield. Inside your attic squirrels will chew wood and electrical wires, and damage the insulation. They have been known to cause electrical fires by chewing wires. Our Chesterfield VA squirrel removal experts can locate squirrel entry points, trap and remove squirrels in the attic and other places on your home, locate and remove baby squirrels, seal and repair squirrel entry points, and replace damaged insulation. One of the biggest mistakes do-it-yourselfers (DIY) make is sealing/repairing damaged entry points without first ensuring that all of the squirrels have been removed. Our Chesterfield VA squirrel removal experts have the training and experience necessary to effective solve your squirrel problems.
