Hi, my name is Mark Prusaitis. I have worked with animals since 1998. I have trained animals such as camels, horses, and ponies. I also had the privilege of working with elephants, exotic birds, and wallabies during my seven seasons of working at the Philadelphia Zoo.
During this time, I had carpentry training and also worked as a fence installer. I got back into the animal field when I accepted a position at PACCA (Philadelphia Animal Care and Control Association). There, I worked hands-on with domesticated and feral animals, as well as wildlife. I became an animal control officer, chasing, trapping, and rescuing animals.
On numerous occasions, I assisted Philadelphia's emergency services in all types of wild situations. My passion has always been helping people and animals, so my wife and I started Mark's Wildlife Control to provide outstanding wildlife control for Philadelphia and its surrounding counties. My goal is to provide fast and effective wildlife exclusions with reasonable rates. I look forward to solving your wildlife problems.
I'm a certified Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator.
I have over 6 years of hands-on experience working in Philadelphia and other counties beyond the city, trapping, excluding, and doing repairs to prevent wildlife damage.
Before that, I had various experiences working in the construction field, including fence installation (chain link and wood), siding and gutter installation, metal bending (windows, drip edge, bargeboard covers), and various other repair work inside and outside of houses.
In recent years, I have obtained new wildlife certifications and training: bat standards certification, crawlspace restoration, and safety courses working at heights. I'm also a Bird Barrier certified installer.
