Arlington County Animal Services: 703-931-9241

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Arlington County and sponsored by the city of Arlington. This agency typically deals with domestic animal issues involving dogs and cats. This includes things like dangerous dogs, stray cats, pet adoptions, etc. However, this agency will sometimes lend assistance with wildlife concerns. Call 703-931-9241 and ask if they will assist with your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, do not lie, but if applicable, state that the problem is a public health matter in Arlington, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Arlington Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 703-690-2168

RehabberThis is NOT a government agency. It is privately run, and operates on volunteer donations. This is a wildlife rehabber facility that deals strictly with wild animals. They may be able to help you with your wildlife problem, depending on the type of problem. The level of help might depend on their resources at the time. They will almost surely help in any case of an injured wild animal, or an orphaned baby animal, such as a baby squirrel or bird that fell out of a tree, or a baby opossum, etc. Please treat Arlington Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.

Virginia Wildlife Commission: 804-367-0909

Game WardenThis is the statewide government wildlife agency in Virginia, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the Virginia Fish & Wildlife Agency. Virginia game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and yes, wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. But they also have resources that may apply to your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, state that the problem is a public health matter in Virginia perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Arlington Police Department: 817-459-5700

PoliceYes, the Arlington police department will sometimes help with wildlife problems! I've seen many cases of the cops chasing down an errant bat in your house or snake in your pool! To increase the chance of success, never lie to the police dispatcher, but if applicable, state that you feel your personal safety is at risk, or the problem is a public safety matter in Arlington, or a public health issue perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases. Success may come down to whether or not a police officer wants to show up to this call, or is available. It's not always consistent.

Arlington Wildlife Tip:
How to kill rats at home -There are many resources on how to kill rats at home, some of which are found on the Internet. Not all websites have accurate information, and there are just as many bogus advice columns as there are factual ones. If you want reliable information about how to kill rats at home, look for a wildlife removal site. These websites will have helpful tips about how to take care of rodent issues. Not only will a good website instruct you how to handle a job on your own, the webmaster will inform you if you should not make the attempt. There are certain situations that require the use of a professional. Trying to remove a problem animal on your own is not always safe or easy. Wildlife professionals have been trained to handle all kinds of nuisance animals, dead or alive. When it comes to rats, you can handle most home invasion situations on your own. Rats are hardy creatures, and trapping is the most reliable method of control. Any Internet site that is worth its salt will tell you that repairing your home is the first step to killing rats. If you do not stop the animals from entering the building first, you will end up trapping new rats and old rats, unable to tell which is which or when your job is complete.

We are happy to provide the information for free Arlington wildlife removal services. Hopefully one of these agencies is able to help you. If not, we are happy to help you solve your wildlife problem, quickly, professionally, and humanely. Our wildlife control work is superior to any of the work you will find from these free services. Feel free to call us 24/7 at 703-881-3164 to discuss your wildlife issue, and we can give you a price quote over the phone.
