Wildlife Pests

In Central, NY we are blessed to still be close to nature, but sometimes nature gets too close and decides to invade our homes or offices.

Sweeney's Pest Elimination offers wildlife pest trapping services locally in the Cortland and Homer, NY areas for the following animals: Raccoons, skunks, opossums, beavers and woodchucks.

We do not trap outside of Cortland/homer because we aren't in other areas on a daily basis and traps must be checked on a daily basis.

If the animal you are looking to trap is not listed, please call our office at 1-855-3-BUG-GUYS to inquire.

Our technicians are certified Nuisance Wildlife Control Operators (NWCO). Call us today for your trapping needs, dead animal removal, or animal proofing.

We do offer animal proofing services in Syracuse, Cortland, Ithaca, Binghamton and Skaneateles for a variety of animals including: bats, squirrels, chipmunks, woodchucks, raccoons, skunks, mice and rats. If you are hearing something in your wall, or if animals are under your deck, shed, or pool, call today at 1-855-3-BUG-GUYS for your free animal proofing quote.

Other companies may suggest trapping squirrels. We do not recommend trapping squirrels because even if you catch the squirrel causing the damage, this does not prevent another squirrel from entering your home to cause more damage. Trapping squirrels may also result in catching every squirrel in the neighborhood, creating an enormous bill for you without solving the problem!

We recommend squirrel proofing as a solution to squirrel issues. To squirrel proof a structure technicians will seal all entry points for squirrels on the exterior of the building, except for the entry hole. On the entry hole the technician will attach a "squirrel door" which will allow the squirrel(s) to exit the building, but not re-enter. The squirrel door will be removed from the building a few weeks after the proofing. We then seal the entry hole so no more squirrels can enter.

Note: not all structures can be proofed due to the way the building may have been constructed. If this is the case for your home/business, we will tell you at the time of the free inspection and give you additional advice to solve the problem.
