West Virginia is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Charles Town wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, we specialize in animals in the attic, which have broken into the house and almost always have a nest of baby animals. It is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. Some Charles Town animals frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.
DOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local
Jefferson County Animal Control
for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses,
pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the Jefferson County animal control, and see what they have to
say, but they will certainly not help you with a complex wildlife problem such as critters in your attic. They are a free government agency that
helps with dog and cat issues only.

Charles Town Wildlife Tip:
Where do rats hide during the day?
Rats, no matter how cute that Ratatouille movie made them seem, are a big problem. Especially once they've manage to infiltrate your home. If you manage to find torn food bags and packages previously unopened, or you see little bits of litter coming from the direction of your garbage can, then you might have a rat living in your house.
The first order of business is finding out where they're hiding and how they got in there in the first place. You don't have to look very far. We've rounded up the most common hiding places for your rats in your home.
Between walls and floorboards
If you hear anyscratching noises at night coming from the walls, you may have rats living the space between your rooms. Look for any suspicious holes along the corners of your walls or a loose floorboard. These are most likely the rats' way in. This may create a big problem for you since rats may chew on the wires inside your walls - a leading cause for home fires.
In your basement
People use their basements as storage for a lot of the things they don't use on a day to day basis like camping gear, fishing rods, and power tools. Some might use it to store long forgotten junk. And several people would use it store food. Rats will naturally gravitate towards the food stored in a warm and moist space like the basement. They will enter through a window or even come from underneath the basement floor.
In your attic
The attic is another good hiding place for rats since people rarely venture there. Storage spaces like the attic will likely go moist if there's a leaky roof that goes unnoticed. The combination of the smell and junk piled up there makes it a good rats' nest.
In your kitchen
The kitchen will be one of the first places a rat will go to, with food stored in almost every cupboard and cabinet. Check behind your stove's grate if the metal has been chewed through. You can choose to cover it a metal netting stronger than the previous one. It is also recommended that you make sure you don't leave any food crumbs or leftovers on the counter and tables as this is a beacon for vermin. Wipe down your counters and tables every night so they won't come sniffing.
In the garden
Rats will burrow in the ground and eventually find their way in to your warm house. Gardens are a good playground for them, since they can chew on the plants you have there. If you have a home garden, they may also target your produce.
Once you've figured out where they are hiding, the best you can personally do is fill in the holes they use to enter your house and then call a professional pest exterminator to herd them out. If you end up trapping rats inside the walls of your home, they are fully capable of chewing through the walls on their own. Better to get the professionals to do the dirty job.
