What problems do wildlife cause?

Most of the calls we get are because homeowners hear animals scurrying around inside the attic or walls. You also might have discovered critter droppings or evidence of chewing. Most of the damage inside a houes or attic is unseen. Rodents like squirrels, mice, and rats gnaw. They often chew on electrical wires, which can cause a fire hazard in your home. I've seen them chew on pipes many times, causing leaks, as well as electrical outages. Wildlife such as raccoons, bats, birds, opossums, and rats spread several diseases that humans can and do catch, such as Histoplasmosis, Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Salmonella or Leptospirosis from the droppings, and Eosinophilic Meningitis to name a few. Most animals will chew or tear open an entry access to your home. Raccoons in an attic will often tear the duct work to shreds, not to mention electrical wires. They can leave huge amounts of droppings and urine. The same goes for bats, which in large numbers can leave a huge amount of guano behind. Birds also soil buildings with their droppings. Oftentimes, the animals living in your house also die inside your house, causing a terrible odor problem.

If you have a problem with an animal outside the house, you can see the damage. It could be a groundhog that has dug a large hole next to your house, or a raccoon that is tipping over your garbage cans or pooping in your swimming pool. It might be an opossum that is stealing pet food, or a skunk living under your deck, causing an odor problem. Some animals might destroy your garden or landscaping. Or perhaps you are simply scared of snakes. Whatever the problem is, our wildlife experts can remove the source of the problem, and prevent it from happening again.

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.

This week's article: How to get rats out of the attic

Rats can find their way into an attic and infest an entire home in a relatively short amount of time. Signs that you may be having a rat infestation in your attic include hearing noises and scratching coming from your attic, as well as finding rat feces in your home. After you discover that your home has been infested with rats, you have several possible options to try to get them out. Some of the ways to do it is by using rat poison and kill the rats, to try and trap the rats, or to try to remove them. However, in order for any option you choose to work, you must identify places within your attic that rats have used to get in in the first place.

You will need to inspect your home carefully and identify as many entry points as possible. Any hole or gap in your attic or roof that is over an inch wide is a possible entry point that rats can use. If you haven’t managed to confirm that rats in your attacked haven’t nested and had babies, you shouldn’t begin closing these gaps. If rats are not able to reach their babies, they will most likely die and start decaying in your home.

Once you have prepared to start dealing with rats, there are several options available to remove rats. By far, the most effective way to get rid of rats is killing them. You can choose to use rat poison, rat traps or even to shoot the animal. Using rat poison to kill rats is very risky for a household, and can be less effective in removing rats. Deadly traps you set up on your attic might work well; however, they are also not absolutely effective, as intelligent rats could manage to steal the bait from the trap without activating. Another way to get rid of rats is to kill them on your own, using blunt or fire weapons. However, this method is also risky for you.

Besides many ways to kill a rat, you can decide to call a professional service to exterminate rats from your home as well as to use extraction funnels. The option you choose should be the result of the number of rats you’ve identified, as well as whether or not you managed to confirm that rats haven’t nested in your attic. Whichever option you decide to go for, you will need to pay special attention to fill in all the holes and gaps in your roof and walls, remove any food or trash that rats might be attracted to, as well as to disinfect your home after the rats have been exterminated.
