It’s beautiful when you can observe animals out in nature, but can become quite a problem when wildlife decide to take up residence in our homes and buildings with us. Small wildlife animals have often been known to take up residence in the warmth and comfort of attics, garages, sheds, and gardens, which can lead to big problems for homeowners, property managers, and renters.
Most homeowners are tempted to solve their wildlife pest problem on their own, without the help of a wildlife control service. A quick internet search will provide you with dozens of tips and tricks on how to remove and to repel those bats living your attic, the raccoons that have taken up residence in your shed, or the chipmunks that won’t stay out of your garden. However, many of these methods can be ineffective or even dangerous. Many wildlife creatures can become aggressive when frightened and may also pose a health risk to humans, as they can spread diseases through their saliva or urine.
Websites will suggest options such as using lights, ultrasonic devices, and the urine of predators (such as coyotes). Most wildlife animals that end up in the home are accustomed to noises and lights, as they are used to human presence and high traffic areas. Predators of small pests, on the other hand, tend to live outside of areas with a strong human presence, meaning that many small animals don’t come into contact with larger predators. Having little experience with larger predators also means that small wildlife animals also don’t know to be afraid of their urine.
Employees of a wildlife control service are specially trained on how manage pest problems without posing a high risk to themselves or the animal. They are able to remove the animals in a humane manner and add precautions to your home to stop wildlife from returning. They do this through a multistep approach. The area will be assessed to understand how the animal got in, determine the best way to humanely capture and remove the animal, sanitize the area if necessary, and help establish a plan to protect the property from future animal entry.

Don’t take a chance with your personal safety and property. Find an expert who can make sure that the wildlife remains in the wild.
