About Shumaker's Animal Control

We trap and remove all nuisance animals -- bats, raccoons, snakes, groundhogs, fox, squirrels, etc., then seal up the entry point permanently and give a 10-year warranty. We work 24-7, even on holidays. We also cap chimneys to keep animals out.

If it can walk, slither, fly or crawl, give Shumaker a call!

    First we were charged 95.00 estimate fee when clearly the commercial said free estimates. The very day they came to put the trap up that night a bat traveled down the inside of my wall and entered my basement. The 24 hr emergency is not true because they came out the next morning to do nothing about closing any entry into the basement area. They came back 4 days later to complete the job and was paid 1800.00 only to be ran out of the house by night fall by the bats. Called the company back about 10:30 p was told we can't do anything tonight we will come in the morning. Called in morning to be told we will come Monday morning instead. I have children and they did not deem this to be urgent nor good business practice to stay with a job when the job you guaranteed for 10yr has failed from day 1 and throughout. I am dissatisfied with the lack of concern and ethics shown thus far I would never recommend this company to anybody. They have made this situation worse than ever and now don't want to take responsibility for their actions.

    I am very sorry you feel as you do,however we never try to trap Bats, we only exclude. I think you may have the wrong company, please call me personally at anytime if your problem has not been solved. I stand behind all of my work, and never quit until the homeowner is satisfied. Dave

    Dave came out and got rid of a nest of squirrels in my attic. He was professional, polite and worked quickly and effectively to remove the squirrels. I highly recommend Shumaker's for any animal removal or pest control need.
