James White

James was born in the southern part of Maryland in 1966, he spent his childhood catching animals on his family farm. In 1990 James started a trapping supply company, offering products to consumers to catch animals such as animal baits and traps. This business quickly took a turn as consumer demand for animal removal grew. The demand was not for traps, but wildlife trapping services! James partnered with Mike Hurley and a multi-state organization was born. This Multi-state platform has been in place since 1993 and we have perfected the art of wildlife removal from homes and buildings. James was critical in the beginnings of this industry in the DC area, James love for his community got him to explore many ways and methods to control animals in a urban environment, the methods that he perfected back then are still in use today. He specialized in geese and beaver. James is no longer with us because of his untimely death in 2007.
