Wildlife in New York City

New York City is home to a diverse range of urban wildlife. Small animals like raccoons, squirrels, and birds cause all sorts of problems when they get into houses and buildings.

At MMPC, our licensed wildlife control experts regularly help clients get rid of animal intruders and stop them from tearing apart insulation, scratching and gnawing on walls, damaging electrical wiring, and leaving behind feces, odors, and other debris.

It’s important to be aware that wild animals can transmit parasites and diseases, including rabies, so never attempt to handle or remove one yourself. Furthermore, simply chasing them out rarely works because the animal will always return to its den or nest.

Proper professional wildlife control involves not only safely trapping and removing the animal(s), but also identifying and sealing entry points to prevent them from returning.

  • Call MMPC for help with wild animals nesting, denning, or causing a disturbance in your home or property. We are fully insured and licensed by the NYSDEC.
  • Call 311 or Animal Care Centers of NYC (212-788-4000) for sick or injured stray animals, large wildlife or endangered species, or wildlife suspected of carrying rabies. ACC does not capture or trap healthy wild animals.
  • Call 411 for injured or sick pets to find an Animal Hospital or veterinarian.
  • Call 911 for wildlife that appear rabid, aggressive, or causing an immediate danger.

Raccoon Control and Removal

Raccoons are notorious nuisance animals in urban areas that can cause damage to property, attract other pests, and create potential health risks. Frequently spotted rummaging through garbage cans at night, these primarily nocturnal creatures seek out safe, dark spaces to rest during the day and raise their young. Unfortunately, their persistent search of shelter and food often leads them to enter peoples’ homes and businesses.

These animals are skilled climbers that easily scale tall homes and buildings to access rooftops, attics, chimneys, and vents. Despite their size and chubby appearance, they can squeeze through surprisingly tight gaps or openings as small as 4″ wide.

  • We start with a thorough assessment to determine where the raccoons are living, how they are getting in, damage caused, and if there are any baby raccoons (kits) that need to be relocated.
  • We install strategically-placed cage traps to capture unwanted raccoons from attics, crawlspaces, and other areas.
  • Once the raccoons are caught, our licensed wildlife professional safely and humanely removes them from the premises.
  • After removal, we provide proofing and exclusion services to help you seal up entry points (where they entered in the first place) to prevent raccoons from returning and causing future problems.

Squirrel Control and Removal

Squirrels scampering in your yard might seem harmless, but they can quickly become a nuisance when they get inside your home. These agile climbers easily scale trees and buildings to access rooftops, attics, and ventilation systems. Once inside, they create messy nests, tear apart insulation, chew through electrical wires, and leave droppings throughout your attic or walls.

Although squirrels in New York City are active year round, we typically see an uptick in squirrel removal requests particularly during the fall and winter as they seek shelter from cold weather.

  • We start with a thorough assessment to determine where the squirrels are living, how they are getting in, damage caused, and if there are any baby squirrels (kits) that need to be relocated.
  • We install strategically-placed cage traps to capture unwanted squirrels from attics, crawlspaces, and other areas.
  • Once the squirrels are caught, our licensed wildlife professional safely and humanely removes them from the premises.
  • After removal, we provide proofing and exclusion services to help you seal up entry points (where they entered in the first place) to prevent squirrels from returning and causing future problems.

Opossum Control and Removal

Opossums are generally non-aggressive and will play dead or flee when confronted. Compared to raccoons, they are much less destructive in terms of causing damage to your home and property. However, they can still be a nuisance when they get into garbage cans or seek shelter in attics, basements, or crawlspaces.

  • We start with a thorough assessment to determine where the opossums are living, how they are getting in, damage caused, and if there are any baby opossums (joeys) that need to be relocated.
  • We install strategically-placed cage traps to capture unwanted opossums from attics, crawlspaces, and other areas.
  • Once the opossums are caught, our licensed wildlife professional safely and humanely removes them from the premises.
  • After removal, we provide proofing and exclusion services to help you seal up entry points (where they entered in the first place) to prevent opossums from returning and causing future problems.

Bird Control and Removal

Pigeons and other birds can become a headache for property owners when they start roosting or nesting on roof edges, window ledges, balconies, fire escapes, and other areas of your home. The biggest concern is usually their droppings, which are unsightly and harbor bacteria and parasites that pose potential health risks. Their nests may also cause blockages in vents and gutters, or introduce secondary pests like bird mites and carpet beetles.

The most common pest birds in New York City are pigeons, sparrows, and starlings. At MMPC, we have over 25 years of experience helping clients protect their property with customized, long-lasting bird control solutions.

  • We start with a thorough assessment of nesting and roosting areas and come up with customized strategies based on your specific situation.
  • Our licensed bird control professionals use humane methods to safely remove birds and their nests.
  • Once the birds are gone, we help you clean and sanitize the affected areas.
  • After removal, we provide bird proofing and exclusion services to deter birds from coming back, such as the installation of bird spikes, bird netting, bird wire, and shock tracks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between “Animal Control” and “Wildlife Control”?

We get asked this a lot, especially from clients dealing with a wildlife problem for the first time. The key difference is where the animal is (in your home versus in a public area). Anytime you encounter a wild animal on your own private property, you should call wildlife control.

Animal control is a public service, typically run by a government agency, that deals with:

  • Lost or stray pets (usually dogs and cats)
  • Sick or injured wildlife believed to have rabies
  • Aggressive wildlife causing an immediate danger
  • Dead wildlife in public areas

Wildlife control is a private service, performed by licensed professionals, that deals with:

  • Wild animals nesting or denning in your home
  • Wild animals causing damage to private property
  • Dead wildlife on private property

Can I remove wildlife myself?

We never recommend removing wildlife yourself for several reasons. First and foremost, it is not safe. Wild animals can bite or scratch if cornered, and often carry bacteria and parasites that cause diseases. Second, improper removal methods may violate local laws or regulations, and can be inhumane to the animal. Finally, do-it-yourself methods are often ineffective at addressing the root cause of wildlife problems, leading to the animal returning.

What should I do if I find a baby animal?

Leave it alone! In most cases, the mother is likely nearby. Wildlife control services can help reunite mothers with their young if necessary.

Is wildlife removal covered by insurance?

In most cases, homeowner’s insurance won’t cover wildlife removal. However, it might cover damage caused by wildlife, depending on your specific policy.

How much do wildlife removal services cost?

The cost of wildlife removal varies based on your location, the severity of the problem, and the scope of services required. Please contact us for a customized quote.
