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.

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. Bat guano hold toxic spores called histoplasma capsulatum, that when inhaled can cause a lung infection called histoplasmosis.

Bat removal in 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 Terre Haute 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  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 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 Trapping and Bird Nest Removal

Nuisance Terre Haute 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 and bird control 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 Terre Haute birds will clog vents and build nests in attics that can reach heights over 6 feet. Our bird control and brid removal 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.

Many times, we find that birds also have attracted other nuisance wildlife such as raccoons and squirrels, causing an added problem. For this reason, bird nesting must be removed from attic spaces because of the attractive odors that it holds. When clogged into exhaust vents, fire hazards present themselves.

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 our professional wildlife control experts a call. We offer complete Terre Haute wildlife control solutions for bird removal in Terre Haute and have custom bird proofing and bird control that is second to none

Squirrel Removal

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 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 Management and Trapping
