One of the most common complaints involving nuisance wildlife is the noise they can produce in a home. Many home owners may be unaware that they even have an unwanted visitor in their home if not for the noise. Certain animals may spend their time crawling around (and doing other things) in their newfound home (your attic, soffits, walls, garage, etc.). The scurrying scratching, chewing, or vocal noise that you hear may be most unwelcome, particularly from nocturnal animals. The primary culprits are raccoons, squirrels, rats, and mice, but other creatures may be at work. Give me a call, and I will identify the source of the noise, as well the means by which the animals are entering the structure. Get the problem fixed, and you will sleep better at night!

Raccoon Removal Services
Having any pest can be a problem, but having a large pest can be harmful in many ways to your family. Raccoons are very intelligent and curious animals. They can clear your garden, cause structural damage, rummage through your garbage cans and carry many diseases. Raccoon removal services would be the best option, for any home owner with this large pest. Doing the removal yourself, can put you at risk and should be handled by a raccoon removal service expert from Platinum Wildlife Removal.
Raccoons prefer heavily wooded areas but can be found in many suburban and urban areas. They make their homes in various places such as, not limited to, barns, garages, sewers, sheds and even in your home. Attics, basements and the crawl spaces are well suited for these pests. Not only can these animals cause structural damage and other issues, but they can also carry rabies. Rabies is a life threating viral disease that causes the brain to swell. Which in turn, makes a person or animal secrete saliva from the mouth, (foaming at the mouth) as well as severe mental issues caused by the swelling of the brain. Being in contact with a person or animal that has rabies is dangerous due to this virus being highly contagious. Treatment for this is crucial to keep a person alive but it is also a painful process.
These large pests can maneuver and eat through many materials that your home is made up of. They sometimes stop at nothing to get to a food source. These cute yet harmful animals become mature around the age of one and can start reproducing where ever they make their homes within a year of their birth. Putting the removal of these pests on hold could potentially multiply the damage. Hiring [OUR COMPANY NAME] would decrease the chances of any more damage, spreading of diseases, and reduce the risk of being bitten. These animals may be cute but they are wild and will do anything to protect themselves or their kits.

These professionals are trained and can remove these pests with or without lethal force. Removing these animals yourself is not recommended unless you have the necessary training and skills to do so.

How to remove skunks from backyard - Removing skunks from the backyard means modifying your property so that skunks don't find it appealing. This process can be long and involved if you have an extensive yard, and some people find that their current landscaping is a part of the problem. Remember that skunks are drawn to your house because of food or shelter. There are no other reasons why wild animals like to invade the spaces of people. Either you're offering too much in the way of edible items, or there are lots of buildings and areas for skunks to make dens. Either way, you need to take the appropriate steps to remedy the situation. First, if you have a lot of buildings on your property, make sure they are secured around the base. This might mean installing a metal barrier around wooden walls or placing cinderblocks at the bottom of modular sheds. If the skunk can't get inside, it won't try for too long. The next step will be to adjust what you're doing about edible debris. A vegetable garden may not be the skunk's favorite food, but it will go in there to eat if there isn't a fence. The same can be said for fruit trees around the home. Fallen apples might not seem like something a skunk would eat routinely, but this is a free food item that won't be passed up. Keep your fruit trees picked up to prevent unwanted wildlife.
