Default Trapper/Nuisance wildlife control

Does anyone have any recommendations for a trapper/Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator in the Wolfeboro area? Something is moving around in the ceiling of my dormer that sounds bigger than a mouse... I used a guy from the Tilton area for flying squirrels a few years ago and was very happy with him, but he appears to be out of business.

It's an area where it's important to find the right person (based on past experience in another state), so recommendations are welcome -- Thank you.

Possibly a chipmunk? They seem to be out of control in our area of Wolfeboro this year. I've relocated nearly a dozen of the little buggers in the last couple of weeks. They can't seem to resist dry roasted peanuts.
I'm using a Havahart 1025 ($23.85 on amazon). It works great. It's open on both ends, but I only leave one door open. The only downside is you can only catch 1 critter at a time!

Seaplane Pilot -- Thank you! I appreciate the info.
Beaner -- could be chipmunks -- they have certainly made themselves comfortable in my wood pile and my rock wall, and parts of the lawn look like Swiss cheese. It was flying squirrels the last time, and apparently they have a reputation for returning -- but I haven't been able to locate a point of entry, and the roof is too steep for me to get onto (and my tolerance for heights is good to about two feet). So I suppose it's time to call in a professional before I have unexpected company some night...

Default JP Pest

I've used JP Pest for several years for pest control. They have wildlife specialist's on staff that do a fantastic job finding very small entryways that pests use to get into your house. I've had an ongoing bat problem that they were able to efficiently solve. Some pests are protected by law (bats) and can't be directly removed. JP installed "one way doors" that allowed them to get out but not back in. Once the house was free of the pests they came back to remove the doors and seal up the entry points once and for all. I've been very satisfied with their work.

Another recommendation for JP Pest. We had a very serious critter issue after purchasing a property that had been largely vacant for 4 years. JP Pest's wildlife division offered a very pragmatic approach that they completed to our full satisfaction.
