The Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) does not offer wildlife trapping services.
If an animal is not leaving and is acting dangerous or aggressive and you need immediate help; contact your City, Town or Village to request assistance from the Animal Control Officer or a Police Officer.
If an animal has set up residence on your property and won’t leave, you may need to hire a nuisance wildlife trapper.
A list of licensed Wildlife Control Officers is available here or you may call the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation at 716-851-7000. Additional Information is available on our Nuisance Wildlife web page.
Please contact the ECDOH Rodent Control Program for assistance if you have a problem with rats on your property.
