Snake Removal in West Virginia
Whether venomous or non-venomous, snakes pose quite the problem when they are in close proximity to humans. Snakes can become extremely aggressive if they feel threatened by humans. Pregnant female snakes are particularly aggressive since they are protecting their unborn young. If you see a hatchling then you can be certain other hatchlings are in the area.
Trying to remove a snake yourself can be dangerous as it usually angers the animal and provokes strikes. Removing a snake or wild animal is not worth your life; Approximately 8,000 people are bitten by venomous snakes every year. Please do not try to remove a snake – leave it up to the professionals.
Venomous Snakes in USA
The top venomous snakes in the US are the Rattlesnake, Diamondback Water Moccasin/Cottonmouth, Copperhead, and Coral Snake.
All of these snakes are deadly to humans and pets. Most snakes will not bite unless provoked, that is why it’s extremely important to leave snake removal to professionals. Trying to remove a snake yourself can result in death or at the very least a painful bite that may require medical treatment. And even with medical treatment some of the effects of snake bites can be long-lasting.

Raccoon Removal in West Virginia
Raccoons are among the most problematic of all nuisance animals. They eat a wide range of food, get used to humans rather easily, and will take advantage of accessible trash whenever possible. Raccoons do not hibernate, but they do live in dens and become less active during the colder months of the year.
Raccoons are also a major host of rabies in the U.S., especially in West Virginia. Raccoon feces can contain dangerous sometimes deadly organisms like raccoon roundworms.
Raccoons initially damage your home by creating a point of entry to the attic, crawlspace, or wall void. This entry point may allow other wildlife to enter your home as well. Animals such as bats, snakes, rats, squirrels, opossums, and insects often use these entries. Entry points can create vulnerabilities in your home’s structure, allowing water damage, mold and compromising the integrity or structure of your home.
Once inside, raccoons destroy insulation, duct work, stored family heirlooms, or electrical wiring. Raccoons often contaminate insulation by defecating or urinating on the insulation. Soiled and contaminated insulation needs to be removed by a professional immediately. Call Xceptional Wildlife Removal today to have your home inspected by a licensed professional.
Raccoon Prevention Tips
- Do not leave food or garbage accessible outside. Secure your garbage and compost in tight metal containers.
- Feed pets indoors and don’t leave food bowls with food outside.
- Take out trash on the morning of pick-up instead of the night before. Keep compost in secure, vented containers to prevent access.
- Do not feed or try to approach raccoons. While cute, raccoons are wild animals. Feeding them will encourage close contact behavior and may prove to be a nuisance, or even dangerous later. Raccoons are notorious for shamelessly begging for food.
Hire a Wildlife Removal Professional
Raccoons can be dangerous animals. Only qualified wildlife removal professionals should attempt to remove, handle, or trap raccoons. Xceptional Wildlife Removal has over 20 years’ experience in safe, effective, and humane wildlife removal.
Skunk Removal in West Virginia
Only qualified wildlife removal professionals should attempt to remove, handle, or trap wild skunks. Skunks are found throughout most of West Virginia.
They are highly adaptable and use a variety of habitats including fields, open woodlands, wetlands, beaches, salt marshes, and agricultural areas, as well as urban and suburban developments.
How to Get Rid of Skunks
The number one reason why you may have skunks or a family of skunks taking up residency on your property are the obvious reasons; food is easily accessible and an easy place to camp out is available.
The first step in making your property as undesirable as possible to skunks or other nuisance wildlife is to remove food or water sources. To avoid problems with skunks and to make your property less attractive to them, here are some basic tips:
- Remove any unsealed garbage bins, compost bins, outdoor pet food bowls, birdbaths.
- Make sure you have a secure fence around your garden.
- Dispose of garbage bags immediately and store in metal garbage cans with tight-fitting lids.
- Install bright floodlights or lights with motion sensors. Skunks are generally pretty timid, so sudden light movement may scare skunks away at night.
- Try skunk repellants in pellet form as well as electronic skunk deterrents.
- Never use your dogs to chase away a skunk! (the result could land you in the vet’s office, and definitely in the bathtub!)
How to Avoid Getting Sprayed by A Skunk
Skunks are generally timid and gentle and often give you a solid warning before resorting to their pungent spray. If you encounter a skunk, remain calm. Move away and speak softly in order to give it room to leave. Once you back away, the skunk will no longer feel threatened and will move on peacefully.
