If you suddenly find that you have a wild animal in your home or living under your deck it can be a terrifying experience. The first thing to do is to get your family and pets away from the area as quickly as possible. Then, contact an animal removal company to find the animal and take it away. Here in Texas there are many different types of wildlife that may become problematic on the property or in the home. Some of these include armadillos, bats, birds, moles, rats, opossums, squirrels, skunks, raccoons and birds.
Getting Rid of Unwanted Wildlife
Wild animals are nice to look at from a distance but when they invade your personal space they become a annoyance. An animal removal specialist will locate the animal and remove it from your home. Some animals are easier to remove than others. For instance, a single bat in your home can be caught and removed. However, it might have gotten into your home because there is a colony of bats living in your attic, chimney, walls or crawl space.
Further investigation is necessary to determine how an animal ended up inside or under your home. There may be a crack in the foundation or a board missing where an animal can get inside. Some animals chew holes in your home to get inside. For example, squirrels can be voracious chewers and when they want to get inside they might chew a hole into your attic.
There may be evidence that animals have been living inside your home for a period of time. The point of entry needs to be closed up and the mess they made has to be cleaned and disinfected. This will help keep animals from reentering your home in the future. Some animals are difficult to catch and a trap may be set to capture the unwanted guest.
What to Do About a Dead Animal
Sometimes an animal gets into or under our home and dies. This can create a difficult situation and one that you really can’t solve on your own. A dead animal will start to decay and along with that comes a foul odor. It can also cause bugs and bacteria in your home. If the animal died inside a wall, in the attic or under the deck it might be somewhat hard to remove.
An animal removal company will locate the deceased animal and take it away. He will also examine the area to see how the animal entered the location. If there is a hole in a wall, a crack in the foundation or any other breach it should be repaired to prevent another animal from getting inside.
