Our animal control experts can trap, remove, capture and control all types of nuisance animals that may be causing damage to your home or business.

All types of animals can be trapped and removed by our animal control experts. We specialize in the removal and control of wild nuisance pest animals from your home or business. Animal removal in Charlottesville is closely regulated by the County of Albermarle and by the state of Virginia to ensure humane and proper treatment of the wild animals of Albemarle County. Our Wildlife Control Technicians are licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources.

We also carry extensive Commercial Liability and Workers’ Compensation Insurance to protect you – the homeowner – and our Animal Control Technicians. Before you hire any animal removal company, you should check to make sure they have the proper nuisance wildlife permits and licenses. Another thing to remember is to NEVER hire a pest control company to perform work that should be performed by a wildlife removal company. Animal removal requires an entirely different set of knowledge, skills and tools that most pest control companies don’t have.
