Humane Animal Trapping

Intrepid Wildlife Services specializes in humane live trapping methods. Specific live traps needed depend on the animal, size, species and how they gain access to homeowner’s property. With jobs ranging from lawns, attics, walls, crawlspaces, sheds, porches, garages and many more. Although we use a wide variety of different humane traps, they all boil down to three different types. Detailed below are: the individual live trap, a one-way excluder and a one-way multi catch trap.

Intrepid Wildlife Service Animal Trappers

  • The individual live trap. The most common. The set up is simple and the process even simpler. We use Individual traps both inside and outside. Animal specific bait placed inside the trap at one end lures animals through an open door at the other. Animals enter the trap and trip a pan or wire. This shuts the door behind them, trapping them. Animals, once trapped, are removed and relocated.
  • One-way excluder. Used exclusively outdoors, this device is used by attaching it over a hole or entry point. This allows the animal to exit and not be able to return because of the way its designed. The animal itself is not caught but allowed to exit and not regain access.
  • One-way multi-catch. This is similar in design to the one-way excluder. A trap like this is used to capture animals using an entry point or hole. The system again prevents animals from regaining access. The only difference is that they are captured in a trap and can then be relocated. In most instances more than one animal is captured at once because of the design.

Professional Animal Trapping

Work with a lot of different wild animals such as raccoons, squirrels, bats, skunks etc. require different tools, systems, and methodology to capture. Wild animals do act similar to one another, but they can often be unpredictable. Every job must be treated differently. Once all wildlife has been removed Intrepid Wildlife Services then seals up vulnerabilities, entry points, holes or potential openings. This prevents future wildlife access to your home.

Rattlesnake Sightings in our area!

Intrepid Wildlife Services was recently featured in a news segment.  In Rockland county, several copperheads and water moccasins as well as Rattlesnakes have been found here recently.  It is illegal for unlicensed handlers to deal with these animals.

What Wildlife are We Dealing with Now?

With temperatures reaching the 20s it’s hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner! Right now is a good time to inspect your house’s exterior for loose boards and rotting wood.  Squirrels could use as an entry point because they will use vulnerabilities to store food reserves for winter. We have begun to receive a lot of calls about noises in the attic along with people seeing Gray Squirrels entering their homes.

Our average for Squirrel removal inside a home is between three and five. We have, in some cases, removed as many as 20. With that said, it’s imperative that people check for any vulnerabilities before it’s too late. In late fall squirrels are generally spending most of their time gathering and storing food and nesting material in preparation for the winter. One such place they store these items are inside peoples attics. This can lead to a variety of issues.

If you think you may have an issue or aren’t sure Intrepid Wildlife offers services to help. From inspecting homes to sealing off, fixing areas before unwanted squirrels enter, and even trapping / removal if they’ve already gained access. Don’t hesitate to call.
