Weasel Control, Trapping & Removal Services
We can rid you of Weasel problems safely and efficiently
Weasels are small predators that typically live near bodies of water. They don’t usually come into conflict with humans, but they can be drawn indoors into barns and chicken coops if they’re looking for a quick meal. Chickens are a common target of weasels; one fatal attack can leave a large portion of a farmer’s flock injured or worse. Plus, because weasels are so agile and adverse to human contact, it’s incredibly difficult to capture the small carnivore before bearing witness to the irreparable damage it’s already caused.
While weasels do like exploring small spaces, which might make them easier to corner, they can be very aggressive if provoked. It’s also possible, albeit rare, for weasels to carry diseases that can be transferred to humans. For these reasons, it’s not safe to attempt trapping or removing a weasel without professional training.

Three species of weasels are typically found in the United States: the long-tailed, short-tailed, and least weasel. At under 8 inches in length, the least weasel is the world’s smallest carnivorous mammal, while the long-tailed weasel may grow up to 24 inches long. Although they vary greatly in size, all weasels have long and slender bodies, short legs, and rounded ears. Coloration can range from snowy white to dark brown with light or dark markings.
These fearless and aggressive predators use scent and sound to track their prey, then crush their heads or necks between their sharp teeth. Excellent swimmers and climbers, weasels prey on mice, squirrels, shrews, moles, small birds, snakes, and rabbits. Due to their small size, the pests often can’t eat their entire prey at once, causing them to store carcasses for later in holes, haystacks, or under rocks.
While weasels prefer to live near water in abandoned animal burrows or hollow trees, the pests can adapt to a wide variety of conditions. In fact, weasels live across the U.S. in every climate zone and, with the exception of Antarctica and Australia, can be found around the globe.
