Wildlife Trapping & Exclusion
Stop wildlife from getting in for good.
Removing gray and flying squirrels, birds, bats, and other wildlife from home or office only solves part of the problem. It’s essential to address how the animals are getting in, so you don’t have to deal with the issue again in the future. Plus, certain types of wildlife are protected and require specialized knowledge and proven processes to remove them safely and humanely. Our trained technicians are State certified with Problem Animal Control (PAC) licenses, OSHA fall protection certified, licensed for hydraulic lifts (if needed), trained in ladder safety and are Nationally accredited with the Quality Pro accreditation. We have been a trusted resource for trapping and wildlife exclusion work for families and businesses across Massachusetts for over 79 Years (our 5 star Google reviews speak volumes). You can trust our team to remove intrusive animals and implement a plan to remedy access issues so your property stays protected long-term.

Exclusion services that solve immediate issues and prevent future problems.
At Ford’s Hometown Services, we tailor squirrel, bird, bat, and other wildlife exclusion programs to meet your specific needs. We always use the latest and most effective and humane removal methods—techniques that work for your home or office building over the long-term. Our process focuses on three key steps:
Inspection: We will locate every possible access point wildlife could enter your home, business, or property, such as gaps beneath weatherstripping or holes in siding or soffits.
Removal: Our team will safely remove problem animals from your property in accordance with State regulations.
Exclusion: To ensure animals don’t return, we’ll implement proven exclusion services such as screening gable vents and entry points, patching roof junctions, and capping chimneys. Our proprietary combination of exclusion materials are the best available and guaranteed to last many years.
From a few squirrels, birds or bats to large raccoons, we have the expertise to capture and/or exclude gray and flying squirrels, birds, bats, and other wildlife nuisances from homes and commercial buildings. We also have in-depth knowledge of best practices around exclusion techniques and timing for protected species, such as bats. We have a unique, proven process for identifying, blocking off, and installing a proprietary one-way door that allows bats to exit safely, but does not allow for re-entry. All Bat exclusions result in LIVE release of the bat populations.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
We offer affordable, multi-year warranty programs for our exclusion work. If a new break in occurs under warranty, materials and labor are covered! Just one of the reasons we’re the most trusted wildlife exclusion professionals in the area.
