Why is our company the best?
Each of our 300+ field operators does a complete job, from start to finish. We remove wildlife humanely and effectively, using the proper traps, tools, and techniques for each unique animal and situation.
When we encounter animals inside a house, we inspect every part of the house, from ground level to every part of the roof, to identify all the areas of entry, and all vulnerable
areas, and we perform professional repairs, with guarantee, to seal entry holes shut. We inspect inside the attic to find any damage or biohazard, and provide full cleaning services. We offer attic decontamination, poison-free and permanent rodent control,
bat colony exclusion, bird prevention, snake removal, dead animal removal and odor control, and more.
Wildlife removal is not a simple task. Each of the field operators in our 300+ branches have received extensive and continuing education on the proper techniques and tools for removing unwanted nuisance wildlife from homes and property.
Most of our branches have 5+ years of experience, in many cases 20+ years. Due to the complexities of the job, the dangers of dealing with wildlife and diseases, and the laws for dealing with wildlife in each US state, wildlife removal is rarely a do-it-yourself type job. Each
animal is different, and each situation is different. Most of our field technicians do not become proficient in their work until they have completed years of field work and hundreds of cases. Experience matters a great deal.
Wildlife Topic of the Month: What kind of damage can woodpeckers cause?
The primary damage from woodpeckers is holes in your house! This occurs most typically in wood, such as wood siding, shingles, or trim, but woodpeckers can also pound out holes in
other housing material. They most commonly drum on houses when making territorial drumming noises, not because they are in search of food inside your walls.
Woodpeckers, while beautiful and majestic, can also be destructive. Each year many of us put out special feeders filled with suet designed to attract woodpeckers. We enjoy their diverse appearances, clever style of eating, and antics during flight. They not only have distinctive plumage, but make a “drumming” noise that is also unique. These hardy and beautiful birds are beneficial as they consume thousands of pounds of nasty insects, like mosquitoes, ants, termites, and more each season. They can also clean bug infestations from trees, saving them from certain death. Unfortunately, the occasional woodpecker will single out your house to “peck” holes in or for nesting. In spring, as males set up territories to try to attract a mate, they use a technique called "drumming."
Most of the times they choose a dead tree trunk to practice their matting song on, but occasionally they do need to find a substitute surface. As we take out more dead trees in the name of progress, woodpeckers may have discovered metal gutters, siding, windows, and other parts of your home to “drum” on. Serious structural damage can occur when the persistent woodpeckers drill holes in window frames, siding, and roofing. The damages can allow water, fungus, and mold to grow inside the wood, causing it to rot away. Structural damage can also occur if support beams are damaged by pecking or boring.
