Wildlife Removal Services

Because it opens to the outside, your chimney is often the place where wild animals enter your home. The chimney is warm and feels safe, therefore many animals are attracted to this place to hide from predators or to make a nest.

  • Do you hear noises in the walls, ceiling or inside your fireplace at night?
  • Have you noticed an awful smell in your home, but can’t determine the source?
  • Have you seen signs of birds nesting near your hood vent or bathroom vents?

In North Carolina, we have a wide range of wild animals that could infest your home via the chimney, including raccoons, skunks, opossums, birds, squirrels, rats, and other rodents. These animals can get inside your home’s wall or into your attic and become a major nuisance to you and your family. They can damage your plumbing and electrical systems, spread diseases and simply wreak havoc on the peace and comfort of your home.
