Many wild animals in Indiana have become displaced as the result of urban growth and habitat loss. Species such as raccoons, opossums, coyotes and red foxes are becoming more common in urban areas and are frequently seen by people. These animals can cause problems when they use a person’s attic for shelter, destroy shingles or eat garbage.
Due to the large volume of wildlife conflicts in Indiana, the DNR is unable to help remove wild animals. Indiana Department Of Natural Resources
Bat Removal and Exclusion
Wildlife like bats in an attic can be a nightmare. Not only do bats cause structural damage with the accumulation of guano, but they also present health risks. It’s a well-known fact that bats are carriers of rabies and can transmit this fatal disease with an unnoticed scratch or bite. Did you know that bat droppings can also be a health hazard? Bat guano hold toxic spores called histoplasma capsulatum, that when inhaled can cause a lung infection called histoplasmosis.
Bat removal in Gary Indiana is typically done in a multi-step process. First we inspect the home to find all of the bat entry points as well as areas that are potential entry points. After all of the openings are located, a seal up is performed to funnel the bats down to only using the main entry points. At these points, bat excluders are placed, which are one way valves that allow the bats to exit and not re-enter the structure.
Once the bats have been removed from the structure and the remaining opening are sealed up, any necessary guano clean up must be done. This is for multiple reasons. Mainly because of the health hazards involved with bat droppings and the dangers of sweeping them up or using a conventional vacuum to get rid of the guano. Another reason is because bat guano can weaken drywall and destroy attic insulation. If enough bat droppings have accumulated, the ceiling can come down from the weight and corrosion
Bird Control and Nest Clean Up
Nuisance wildlife like birds can cause a mess that shocks the majority of homeowners. When professional bird control and bird removal is needed, it’s usually because birds have taken up residence inside of an attic or an exhaust vent. Since attics are seldom visited, attics can have unbelievable amounts of nesting that accumulates over years, many times filling several contractor bags when cleaned up. Bird nesting can carry bird mites, ticks, fleas and parasites.
Bird removal from exhaust vents usually hits its peak around May and June. The most common species causing the need to get rid of birds from vents is black birds and starlings. These nuisance birds will clog vents and build nests in attics that can reach heights over 6 feet. Our Gary bird control services include baby bird removal, deterrents, nesting clean out, adult bird removal from vents and bird proofing to prevent future bird problems in vents and attics.
If you have a bird problem and would like to know how to stop birds from nesting in vents or how to keep birds out of your attic give us a call. We offer complete solutions for bird removal in Gary and have custom bird proofing that is second to none.
Squirrel Control and Prevention
A few signs that you may have squirrels in your attic are the type of noises in the attic and the time that you are hearing the noise. Squirrels tend to move very quickly and will run back and fourth, often even playing or fighting with one another. Since they are diurnal, squirrel activity is usually heard during the day.
Our Gary squirrel removal process is typically done by either setting baited traps near the entry points or multi-catch traps right over their entry points to catch them as they enter or exit. Trapping squirrels in an attic will produce on average 3-5 squirrels, however in some instances there can be many more or just a solitary squirrel.
Skunk Trapping and Proofing
Nuisance skunks like to dig under sheds, decks, stoops and any other structure that can provide adequate cover. Skunk removal is usually the highest during baby (May-July) and grubbing season in the fall, but typically lasts all year long as skunks do not truly hibernate.
Our Gary skunk trapping services are top notch, with many years of experience in conventional and unconventional trapping techniques. We can provide remediation for any skunk issue you are experiencing and provide skunk odor removal and skunk proofing as well once they have been removed.
We also provide dead skunk removal and skunk removal from window wells.
Raccoon Removal and Damage Repair
Are you experiencing issues with problem raccoons? Raccoons can be problematic almost every where. From tearing through roofs to going under decks, sheds and stoops to den, they can be a real danger to a homeowner, pet owner or parent.
Our services range from raccoon trapping, baby removal from inside an attic or under a structure, carcass excavation, and raccoon feces removal. Raccoons can be extremely destructive, as you may know they will tear a hole right through a brand new roof just to den inside, especially when its a mother with young.
Raccoon feces is also an issue aside from the damage as it carries a parasitic roundworm egg that has been known to make humans, pets and other animals blind when infected. We know the risks of handling raccoons and take precautions very seriously when dealing with a problem animal that has decided to den inside or under a homes structure.
Our Gary, IN raccoon trapping services are typically the same day, with the entire process lasting approximately a week before raccoon proofing can be done. Once we evaluate your needs, traps are set up near or over the entry point. Upon completion, we then place a marking indicator over the entry point to ensure no animals are coming in or out. If the indicator has been undisturbed for 3 days we then move forward with proofing and exclusion services.
Our Gary wildlife removal and wildlife control services also cover dead raccoons that need to be dug out from a structure or cut out from behind walls. These occurrences are rare for day-to-day services however, as with all Gary wildlife issues, nothing is a surprise.
