If you have a problem with a wild animal such as a rodent, opossum, raccoon or armadillo, you need help from a professional. A wildlife control specialist will assist in getting the animal off your property so it is no longer a nuisance. There are many types of animals that could take up residence in your yard or home. The first thing to do is identify the problem. It is usually best to stay away from any type of wild animal because it could be harmful. For example, bats and other animals could carry rabies or other dangerous diseases.
Wildlife Control Specialists
Contact a wildlife control specialist to resolve the problem. The specialist knows how to deal with any type of animal. Some of the most common animals that impact our area include armadillos, raccoons, opossums, rats, moles, squirrels, bats, birds and skunks. Any of these animals might cause problems for you and your family if they are located too near to your home.
The specialist will first work to remove the unwanted animal from your property. Once this is accomplished the next step is to prevent them from returning. Some animals prefer to find dark, secluded places to hide or live and some females may look for places to have their babies. These places must be identified so that they can be repaired to keep them out. For instance, you may need to install a barrier to keep animals from getting underneath your deck or porch.
Preventing the Return of Wildlife
In addition to making changes or repairs to your home there are other methods that can be utilized to help control wildlife. Some types of wildlife respond to repellants. Repellants can be sprayed onto areas of the property to keep animals away. If animals are digging in your garden or yard there are substances that are placed into the holes to keep them from returning.
Some types of wildlife do not respond to repellants. For example, there is no approved repellant that works well on bats. Bat colonies need to be removed, the area cleaned and the point of entry closed. Sometimes a trap can be set for certain types of animals, for example, raccoons. If the animals enter the device they become trapped inside. Then a wildlife specialist will remove them to another location to let them out.
Once in a while an animal such as a bird or a squirrel might get inside your home. You can try to allow it to get out on its own by closing it into a room with the doors and windows open. However, this doesn’t always solve the problem. A wildlife specialist will locate the animal and safely catch it to remove it from your home.
