Experts in Removing, Controlling, Trapping, Capturing & Managing Critters & Other VA Pests
Virginia Wildlife Trapping & Control in Virginia is a daily task performed by nuisance pest animal control operators throughout Virginia. Wildlife Removal companies and Pest Control companies perform entirely two different types of work. Pest Control companies primarily deal with mice, rats and insects – that’s their bread-and-butter work. On the other hand, Wildlife Removal Companies deal with nuisance wildlife that is indigenous to Virginia. Virginia Wildlife Trapping and Control requires an entirely different skill set. Commercial nuisance trappers are required to take and pass a written test in order to receive their Commercial Nuisance Wildlife Removal Permit which is issued by the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources – This permit is issued to the individual, not the company. Additionally, Wildlife Control Operators are required to be retested every two years OR show proof of successfully completing Continuing Education training. The trapping laws listed below are just some of the many trapping VA State laws trappers must follow in Virginia. There are also Federal and Local laws, regulations and ordinances that a VA nuisance trapper must follow. Please check to make sure the person or company you hire to help solve your wildlife problem has all the correct documentation from the Commonwealth of Virginia and has proper Commercial Liability and Workers’ Compensation Insurance policies in place to cover you and your home should something unforeseen happen.
If for some reason we are unable to help you with your nuisance wildlife problem, we maintain a network of other qualified Wildlife Control Technicians throughout Virginia who can help you. Buyer Beware – Nuisance Wildlife Removal in Virginia is grossly unregulated. There are many less than reputable companies out there trapping animals. Check all required documentation. All of our technicians are trained and follow Virginia Wildlife Trapping laws and regulations.
Some Virginia Trapping Laws

- Residents under the age of 16 are not required to have a license to trap when accompanied by any person 18 years of age or older who possesses a valid Virginia trapping license.
- Any person who is not hunting, but is aiding a disabled person to hunt when such disabled person possesses a valid Virginia Disabled Resident Lifetime hunting license or a Virginia Resident Disabled Veteran Lifetime license is not required to have a license.
- Any American Indian who resides on a Virginia Indian reservation or a member of the Virginia recognized tribes who resides in the Commonwealth is not required to have a license; how ever, such Indian must have on his person an identification card or a paper signed by the chief of his tribe, a valid tribal identification card, written confirmation through a central tribal registry, or certification from a tribal office.
