Insulation Removal & Installation
Sanitation & Disinfection
|Continue for Pricing →|
When critters gain access to your home they love to make your home their home. One of their favorite things to do is nest in attics and basements inside of the insulation. Rodents like squirrels, mice and rats will tear holes in the insulation and use it for nesting material. Given time this damage can become quite extensive (particularly with larger animals like squirrels and raccoons). Along with the damage from the critters themselves, the feces accumulates very quickly in your attics and basement causing health hazards and damaging the insulation. At Upstate Pest & Wildlife Control we make your damaged and dirty spaces, clean again.
Our goal is to remove as much of the contaminated insulation, feces and debris as possible from the space, and then to sanitize and disinfect it. After this we install brand new fresh insulation to bring the space to its proper insulation R-value.
Our process begins with an inspection to identify the target critters and a detailed trapping/eviction plan followed by repairing the entry points the animals were using. At this time we will also measure the attic, crawlspace or basement that needs remediation
Once the animals are removed and the entry points sealed we can begin the extraction process. We use special equipment to safely remove the insulation and feces without contaminating the home. The space is then cleaned and sanitized.
Finally, after the space is cleaned and sanitized we install brand new insulation in the space.
From the beginning, we’ve had a culture of looking at things differently. We’ve carefully crafted and combined the best people, products, and procedures to ensure we do the best work for you. Our goal to WOW you with our superior service. Here are some of the benefits of being an Upstate Pest & Wildlife Control customer:
This depends on how much moving room there is in the attic, basement or crawlspace, how many sq feet and how much feces there are. In general an insulation removal and replacement can take anywhere from 1-2 full days, but can also be longer.
We don’t know! every home is different, every house has different access and levels of problems. The great news is that the inspection is FREE if you are within our service area and we can typically provide a quote on the spot.
It is typically impossible to get every single piece of feces out of an attic, but between our removal service and sanitation service we are aiming for a 95% removal of all feces in an attic. This is a massive improvement over the condition that we find attics in before doing the work.
Sanitation & Disinfection
I had squirrels in my attic and Upstate took care of the problem in a kind, compassionate way by using live traps. They came every day and were always friendly and efficient. I would recommend them highly!– Carol S. in Chatham, NY All staff were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Jake came over, inspected the property, and gave an estimate. An appointment was made quickly. They arrived at the time quoted. Everyone was very professional. I highly recommend this company.– Angela F. in Albany, NY We called Upstate for a mouse issue, and we were extremely pleased with the professionalism, courtesy, and knowledge, starting with Jake who came to give us an estimate, to Al and Stephanie who did the seal up, and inspections. Could not ask for better people to deal with. Thanks.– John V. in Albany, NY This company was fantastic! They showed up every time they said they would, WHEN they said they would, and did exactly what they told me they would at the beginning of the treatment! They were extremely nice, helpful, and a pleasure to have in my house. Now…to see if it works 🙂– Shelly V. in Albany, NY I found out about this company through google reviews, so is fair to leave my feedback here for other people! Jake was extremely punctual, attentive, and professional. He inspected the house because we had rat problems. He explained everything to us to resolve the situation in the interior of the house where the rats made a hole. Besides everything, he was extremely nice! I would recommend his services to anyone.– Omar G. in Saratoga Springs, NY We contracted Upstate Pest and Wildlife Control for 3 services: Removing a Hornet’s nest, trapping (for capture and relocation) groundhogs under our house, and trenching the areas where the groundhogs were entering/exiting their dens/tunnels around the house. They provided prompt, dependable, and excellent services in all 3 cases. Communication, explanations of work being done, and follow-up were great! We would definitely call them again, should the need arise.– Brian & Darryl D. in Saratoga Springs, NY Stephani and Al were quick to respond to my need. They were here the SAME DAY I called. They explained everything they found, gave us options with detailed descriptions, were never pushy, and were most helpful. I was eased to know these pests would soon not be a risk to me or my family. They explained the follow-up procedures and still gave us an option as to whether to come back or not….there was no way I was going to say no to that. They were GREAT.– Kim T. in Saratoga Springs, NY My call was answered quickly and my request for a tech to come to the house was quick as well. Stephanie and Matt were cordial, professional, and effective. I’d recommend them to anyone with an infestation problem.– Celeste C. in Clifton Park NY We had sudden but extreme evidence of mice in our house. After 3 visits in a couple of weeks, we now have none at all. They were fast, efficient, and complete. I would100% recommend them for impressive results!– Dot W. in Clifton Park NY Jake was very responsive to our issues with woodpeckers and other birds leaving holes all over our cedar-sided home. The crews were very courteous, explained what they were going to do, and did a very professional job– Eric K. in Clifton Park NY Very professional and quick! He cut the yellow jackets nest out of my front bush and sprayed them. They are now all gone! I even worked on those same front bushes with no problems! He was very informative too!– Kelly P. in Chatham, NY Although others have said “5 Stars is not enough” after working with Upstate Wildlife Control, there must be a reason we all say it. Jake & Matt deserve a 10-star review. As a business owner myself, I can appreciate their time, expertise and pride in a job well done. On a personal note, they were outstanding professionals and went above and beyond to resolve this animal problem at our home. Thank You !!!– Mary Bulger Excellent, professional service! So pleased with their response time, skill and quality!!! Don’t waste your time calling any other pest control company because they just will not compare!– Amanda S. in Chatham, NY Upstate Pest Control has been amazing to deal with! They were prompt in their response to my initial contact and just as prompt in coming to address the problem. They quickly took care of our bee issue, explained their services, and even how the pests do their work. They have also been great about addressing concerns we have had since. Their business model is the best around!– Allison R. in Rotterdam, NY We have had issues with mole and vole damage for 3 years. We are happy to say Upstate Pest and Wildlife was able to trap and end our problem. We highly recommend them to deal with this frustrating problem. Excellent service and results! Thank you, Jake and Team.– Barbara F. in Rotterdam, NY Matt Erikson came by on time. He explained the process to me. He used several types of chemicals to destroy the yellow jacket nest in my wall. He said they would all be gone within a few hours, sure enough by that evening, they were gone. This company was fantastic to work with! Thank you. I have multiple properties and I will absolutely be using them again in the future.– Billy C. in Rotterdam, NY Jake and the team have been very helpful, responding quickly after setting up an appointment and have stopped by frequently to follow up. The final cleanup and repair were quick and courteous, and everything was done above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the end results. Their friendly, professional service has been wonderful, I would definitely recommend them.– Andrew M. in Schenectady, NY Upstate Pest & Wildlife Control was great. As soon as I called them and told them what I was hearing – they explained what they thought it could be and gave me an appointment right away. When they came for the appointment they were professional, helpful, and certainly, put my mind at ease. They came and got right to work to get rid of the grey squirrels that were in my eaves.– Robin M. in Schenectady, NY I called Upstate Pest & Wildlife on Monday 4/12/21. That afternoon they came over and set up traps for skunks in our shed. They were very friendly and explained step by step the process of what they were going to do. They also put up a mesh fence around the perimeter of the shed. They were very neat and efficient and communicated with us that week every time I called or texted. This company is a well-oiled machine and will refer them to anyone in need! Thank you for your superb service!– Eileen C. in Schenectady, NY Five stars is hardly enough to rate this company. If you’re looking for professional, high-quality, fairly priced wildlife removal guys who are friendly, smart and loaded with integrity, Upstate Wildlife Control is the team to hire. I am proud to support local businesses and UWC is one business that I will recommend unconditionally to anyone in need of this type of service. . . . just the nicest guys you’ll ever meet.– Mji X I agree that 5 stars is hardly enough to rate this company. Jake and Matt are very professional. They called me back almost immediately, made an appointment for the next day. They came to do the work to remove the mice. They plugged up the entry ways, set traps and came back in 2 days to collect the dead mice. . . . They are very reasonably priced and extremely easy and pleasant to work with!– Ruth Smith
