Tri-State Wildlife Management – Protecting You, Your Property, and Your Investments

Our courteous staff works for you to provide a cost effective solution to your wildlife intrusion and/or damage issue. As a full service company, we initiate an Integrated Wildlife Management Program beginning with an inspection and customer education, followed by removal of intrusive wildlife and repair of wildlife damage. TSWM also offers prevention, restoration, and cleanup services.

Tri-State Wildlife Management uses a variety of products and methods for repairs, prevention, and restoration.  TSWM seals homes and businesses with specialized wildlife restoration products, installs custom and standard chimney caps, vent screens/coverings, as well as barrier walls and fencing. TSWM provides habitat modification as another preventative technique. When cleanup services are needed or desired, it typically involves the removal of bird, bat, or raccoon droppings, and contaminated debris from attics or other wildlife invaded areas. TSWM also offers dead animal removal services and MUCH MORE.

We strive for the most humane and environmentally effective techniques for dealing with wildlife problems. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s use of modern innovative methods provides sound wildlife management services to ensure the protection of our customers’ investments and health.

Tri-State Wildlife Management is fully insured, and we stand behind all of our work.
