Humane Capture and Removal of Nuisance Wildlife
We will capture and remove the offending animals from your business or home. In most cases this is done with cage traps in the most humane and efficient manner possible.
The Critter Guy will gladly take the critter* to a wildlife rehabilitator for an additional fee.
Non-target wildlife catches will be released unharmed or removed at the discretion of the customer.
*Not all animals are eligible for relocation under Virginia law. Please feel free to ask the Critter Guy about specific species ineligible for relocation.

Exclusion, Repair, & Prevention
This can be as simple as a new dryer vent or chimney cap or as involved as removal of attic insulation that has been heavily contaminated by animal feces and urine. Such waste is harmful to humans and pets, due to diseases and parasites. Sometimes major repair may be necessary, because some species such as bats or flying squirrels can gain access through gaps that most builders would not realize. The Critter Guy can install fences, barriers, and deterrents as situation and species dictates.
Sometimes something as simple as changes in your routine could be necessary to resolve animal conflicts. We will identify these situations whenever possible, hopefully avoiding lethal solutions.
The Critter Guy handles commercial work too. Give us a call and The Critter Guy will be happy to discuss solutions to your wildlife problems.
Dead Animal Removal & Disposal
The Critter Guy provides dead animal removal, from small and stinky in a wall to large and bloated in the yard. No critter is too large, small, or stinky. We can also deodorize and sanitize the area.
Shoveling and burying dead animals in your yard may contaminate your water supply and destroy your landscaping. We static compost dead animals, which is a very environmentally sound, zero chemical, zero carbon footprint, natural method of disposal. We think this method of disposal is superior to all others. So give The Critter Guy a call and let us take care of your stinky problem.
You may be surprised to learn that wildlife managing to crawl onto your property (off the right-of-way) before dying from a collision with a vehicle is out of the highway department’s jurisdiction. The Critter Guy is no stranger to roadkill, give us a call and we’d be happy to give you a quote.
