Nuisance Animal Removal
We are licensed and insured by the state of Ohio to perform nuisance animal removal by appropriate professional methods.
We all love animals. They can be fun to watch, learn about, and even interact with. Most of us just prefer them on our own terms. A surprise bat flying around inside is not exactly a fun experience for a homeowner. Beyond the scary encounter, wild animals can do massive amounts of damage to their property. No one wants to pay for new electrical wiring or insulation from a squirrel's nest in their attic.
Clients provide daily communication with the ACG technicians to report animal catches. This allows for our prompt response.
Use of Thermal Imaging to Locate Nuisance Animals
If you suspect animal intrusion, but can't reach the area or are not up to checking it out, Another Critter Gone provides home inspections.
We have thermal imaging cameras that will reveal where an nuisance animal might be hiding. When we are certain of the area, we can gain access if needed.
Once we are in we remove the animal by trapping and/or ethical removal, depending on the animal.
We caution that if there is a dead animal on your property, not to remove it yourself. We have training and expertise to avoid the spreading of disease and infestation. It can be very dangerous to you and your pets in handling this by yourselves.
We specialize in the following nuisance animal removal services:
Thermal Imaging Camera Tracking

There’s a reason these little creatures look like bandits. Raccoons will steal your peace of mind, sleep, and cost you money. They can be very damaging to your property. We’ve seen destroyed insulation, drywall, wiring, gutters, shingles, and more. On top of the wreck that they cause they are very dirty animals. They can carry disease-ridden insects, along with rabies and mange into your home. Not to mention the mess they leave behind. We’ve seen fecal matter stacked up to a foot high! It’s not pretty. Raccoons like to dwell in chimneys, basements, and attics. Often, like squirrels, they are looking for a place to nest.
Do you have a raccoon in your attic?
They are obvious creatures. They are not an animal to take lightly. You DON’T want to deal with them yourself. Raccoons can be very dangerous. We have found ripped holes in shingles and wood from raccoons. Baby raccoons cannot be trapped and must be removed by hand. If the mother raccoon is present, she can be very defensive when protecting her litter.
Our critter removal team will trap them and patch the area they came in, so you can feel secure again.
In Cinderella they are adorable, but in real life, not-so-much. Mice can make a mess behind the scenes, from all the remnants they leave behind to chewing on your electrical wires. Beyond that mice can carry harmful diseases and contaminate your food. It's best to take care of them before they breed and have a nice big family.
Are there mice running around behind your walls?
Mice can live up to three years running around houses behind the walls and rummaging through your pantry. You'll either hear them at night, since they are nocturnal, see their droppings, or notice bags of food that have been gnawed through. They love pet food. Getting a handle on the problem can be troublesome when you have pets and children. Putting poison or traps out can put them at risk. Call Another Critter Gone. We have thermal imaging cameras to see where they are hiding.
We'll get them out and remove their mess so you can get down off of that kitchen chair.
To a homeowner, moles can be one of the most annoying pests on the planet. They make tunnels under the surface looking for worms. They can be capable of digging up to 16ft per hour, destroying your yard. They leave little volcano-shaped hills of dirt behind or surface tunnels and ridges. They love moist soil rich in organic matter.
Do you have a mole trail in your yard?
You may never see the mole, but there’s no mistaking the damage they leave. They are usually most active in Spring and Fall mornings and evenings. They also are around when there’s a warm rainfall.
We can trap these creatures and remove them from the premises!
Skunks are a big outside nuisance. They will make themselves at home under your house, tool shed, deck, porch, and patio. Sometimes they fall into basement window wells, which can be scary. They’ll destroy your flowerbeds and foundation in no time, digging 3-4 inch deep holes. They also can carry ticks and fleas.
Smell a skunk nearby?
That smell is usually a clear indicator. If you see five-toed tracks, it is a skunk or a raccoon. They are usually most active in the spring in the evening. They are usually mild-mannered and non-aggressive. Yet, when they feel threatened you can smell them from over a mile away. They can spray from 10 to 12 feet in all directions with ease. This can make it hard to get rid of.
Another Critter Gone will come and remove them from your premises.
Even though they seem cute and cuddly critters, you must never let them live in your attic. Their ability to chew through anything can be very destructive to a home. We find a lot of attics where they have destroyed all the insulation. They also chew through wires, causing fire hazards. Besides smelling bad, their waste can, in time, result in mold and mildew. They also can carry fleas and ticks into your home. If you think one is bad, they will bring more of their friends and family soon enough. They are very social creatures, so it’s only a matter of time till you have a squirrel community on your hands. Often when squirrels move into an attic, it is to find a nest where they can have babies. The baby squirrels cannot move on their own for about 7 weeks. During this time, removal can be tricky. Another place they like to nest is in a chimney. Always make sure your chimney is inspected before using it. It can be one of the greatest fire hazards to a home.
Do you have squirrels?
You’ll know by the noise they make 24/7, but another indicator can be the nesting signs. Another Critter Gone will remove the squirrels. We’ll also remove and replace any compromised insulation. Before we leave the premises, we will strengthen your home’s weak areas.
We want to make sure that the wildlife stays on the outside.
Often known as the woodchuck, groundhogs are another den animal. They often destroy porches, sheds, and fences. They can also chew through your electrical wiring. Once they make a den on your property, it opens up opportunities for other den animals to take up residency. These animals include skunks, opossums, raccoons, foxes, and coyotes. Many breeds of wildlife can live in different parts of the den.
Is there a groundhog under your shed?
They like piles of debris to take shelter under. They also love tree trunks or woodpiles to gnaw on. They hibernate in the winter so you will see them active mostly during warmer months. If you notice one critter, it’s better to call us right away before there are more. A larger den tunnel can compromise the structural integrity of any building.
Call Another Critter Gone before the damage is done!
Who hasn't had a bird nest in their porch rafters or vent? Though very avoidant of humans, they seem to call their homes awful close to ours. A nest in an exhaust vent can cause your dryer to catch fire or bathroom fan motor to stop working. Not only can their nests be destructive, but they can also be very protectant of their eggs and young. Even standing on your deck will make you a target when there is a nest nearby.
Is there a Black Starling family in your deck rafters?
These, among many other birds, like to build their nests in a sheltered area, close to warmth. In the springtime, you will see nests not only in trees, but in shopping mall signs, roof rafters, exhaust pipes, and more! Though we can appreciate their chirping and impressive nature, they can be destructive to property and people.
Call Another Critter Gone to evict them quickly.
You don't have to be in a horror movie to have an encounter with this creature. Since they are so prominent in that culture, there are a lot of misconceptions about the animal. We know they can really frighten you, but know that usually, they are more afraid of you. While they won't swoop down and bite you, there are some things to be aware of.
Is there a bat in your house?
No one wants a bat flying around their house. The occurrence is more apt to happen in the warmer spring and summer evenings. It happens a lot with younger bats, as they are just learning to fly and get trapped inside. Running around after them rarely results in successful removal. It's also not a good idea to handle them, as they can carry all kinds of diseases.
Another Critter Gone will come out and safely remove any bat issue you may have. They will also remove the bat droppings from the space.
Canadian geese establish their nesting grounds around lakes, ponds, and small rivers, whether it is around a pond in the country, on a golf course, or in your backyard. In fact, if left undisturbed they will establish nesting grounds on any suitable lake or pond. The males will aggressively protect and guard their nests and their territory around them.
Have your few geese turned into a huge multitude?
A pair of geese can multiply into 50 birds within a couple years. Their feces will cause an unpleasant odor and destroy the grass and vegetation on and around a pond. The more these birds are exposed to humans the more likely they are to attack pets and small children, especially during nesting season. Therefore, it is important to prohibit people from feeding the geese and employ wildlife specialists to remove the birds.
We offer a wide range of geese managment services including preventative nesting, aggressive geese removal, nest removal and roundups. We can assist you in obtaining permits from the state of Ohio, and will set up a program custom tailored to your property's unique needs.
