Wild Animal Control Services
You have been hearing of incessant noises in your attic, the unpleasant whiff of skunk odor floating around the house and found a raccoon living in your chimney. Dealing with these nuisance animals can cause a great deal of stress in your home.
The best way to remove these animals is through live trapping, setting up traps and baits. However, this method can cause several problems if not executed well and can be punishable by law for animal cruelty. Setting up a trap that is too small or incorrect bait could lead you to trap the wrong animal.
Some of them are pretty clever stealing the bait from the trap without being caught, too. Worse, after figuring out the trap, they will never enter it again. With numerous attempts of failing to capture them, it is advisable to contact a professional from the wild animal control services to step in.
Most Common Wildlife Nuisances
If left uncapped, chimneys have the potential to be a home for animals living off in the nearby branches. It can also be a breeding ground for colonies of bats, birds that fell off, or a shelter for a mother raccoon and her children on spring time.
Wildlife may seek out your home as a shelter from possible predators, which can lead to complications. A raccoon can tear up the insulation inside the house by making entry holes, squirrels may eat house wires that can lead to an unexpected fire, and droppings of bats in humid areas cause lung disease.
Stoop and Deck Animals
Feces, a pile of dirt, and animals could die under the decks which may need extraction as soon as possible. Skunks could also spray on stoop and decks.
Wildlife Control Services
Improper wildlife trapping can cause you a hefty fine or even jail time. Trapping without a license in some states is considered illegal. It is therefore imperative to remove these animals in a humane manner according to the laws of the state.
Exclusion and repairs
Closing off points of entry from your house is one of the ways to exclude animals from your property. Concrete and metal materials are used to prevent possible chewing by these animals in the future.
Treatment and Sanitation
There is possible contamination in the area due to the fact that these animals breed, defecate and urinate in the area. This can spread through the insulation and possibly infect you and your loved ones. The insulation, therefore, needs to be replaced because it may cause health risks. Antimicrobial treatment and proper sanitation should be undertaken as well.
If left unsupervised, wild animals can cause serious damage to properties. It can also pose a potential threat to you and your loved ones as well. You should seek out professional help from wild animal control services should these problems arise because safety should always be your main concern.
