While a large part of our business is trapping and removing unwanted wildlife, we work with our customers to help prevent wildlife intrusions. This is done by inspecting the exterior of your home for areas that are susceptible to wildlife.
For example, animals can gain access to the home through overgrown shrubbery or an overhanging tree branch. So in many cases, simple pruning can help make your home less desirable to wildlife. In addition, structures such as decks and sheds can help harbor wildlife and simple exclusion work around these structures can help prevent many unwanted pests.
Bats, birds, squirrels, opossums, and raccoons can all cause damage in attics, soffit areas or wall voids as they build out nests and seek shelters for themselves and their growing families.
Major damage can occur as they crush and tear insulation, chew through weather barriers and electrical wiring. The animal droppings left behind can also be very harmful. In many cases, the droppings are usually not a problem if detected early enough and can be easily cleaned.
Sometimes, as in cases where the animal problem has existed for many months or years, a complete cleanout and decontamination would be recommended.
