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

 

Indianapolis Bat Removal and Exclusion

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 Indianapolis 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.

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.

Our bird control and bird 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.

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 and Indianapolis wildlife removal and have custom bird proofing and control that is second to none.

Indianapolis Wildlife Removal and Squirrel 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.

Squirrels typically enter from the same common entry points, however, like all wildlife, there can always be a surprise. Some of the most common entry points for squirrels is attic vents, attic fans, gnawed fascia boards, loose soffits and breached ridge vents.

Our Indianapolis squirrel removal and control 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.

Indianapolis 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.

The three main signs that homeowners typically noticed when a skunk has moved in is a large pile of gravel, grubbing holes in a lawn and of course, the smell. Skunk odor smells somewhat like burning due to the sulfur content that it has to temporarily blind predators that are in pursuit. Skunk odor will penetrate almost any material and is especially soaked up by concrete since concrete is very porous. The odor is usually sucked right into the home as soon as heat or air is turned on, making the entire home smell as if the skunk was inside the home.

Our Indianapolis skunk trapping services are top notch, with many years of experience in conventional and unconventional trapping techniques.

Indianapolis Raccoon Trapping and Damage Repair

Are you experiencing wildlife issues with problem raccoons? Wildlife like raccoons can be problematic almost everywhere. 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.

Our Indianapolis, 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.

Indianapolis Snake Removal Services

General Information

Of the 34 species of snakes that occur in Indiana, only 4 are venomous. Copperheads, cottonmouths, timber rattlesnakes, and massasauga rattlesnakes are the only venomous species found in Indiana, and they are rare and found only in certain parts of the state.

Prevention and Control

Snakes are less likely to frequent an area where they have little cover or food. Control rodent populations around your home, remove piles of junk, rocks, brush and boards, and keep grass mowed.

Occasionally, snakes searching for rodents or eggs, or a place to shed their skin, will take refuge in barns, crawl spaces underneath homes, or sometimes in a home. The best way to keep snakes from entering your home or other building is to prevent snakes and snake food (rodents) from entering your home. Closing up all possible entrance locations is a must. Next, a rodent control program should be put in place to eliminate the food attraction for snakes.

Rodents can be really expensive in terms of the repairs of the damages these rodents have done. This nuisance critter will take less time for it to establish a colony if neglected. When left alone, it will cause certain damages within the house or building, leaving their feces and urine all over the place and even cause different sickness and contract diseases. The most common disease these rodents can contract is rabies. Without the proper equipment, an inexperienced person trying to capture this creature may have difficulty and may even cause more damage to the house or people living in the house. If it can not be helped and an individual must confront this nuisance critter, consult first the state laws on what are the do’s and dont’s when removing the creature. There is one thing that is common in the laws of different states and it is to not harm or kill these rodents. Try avoiding using any harmful chemicals that may be hazardous to both the animal and the nuisance critters.
