Certain forms of wildlife could be quite scary when encountered face-to-face. The Los Angeles Dodgers reported to the Los Angeles Times that several skunks and a raccoon were found scurrying across parts of Dodger Stadium in the past two months; the place had at least seven reported skunk invasions. Some kiosk operators in the concourse have complained that the animals left their trademark stench for a long time after they were successfully removed.
Pepe Le Pew or Canada’s The Raccoons are every bit loveable, but their real-life counterparts are potential catalysts for driving away business and frightening homeowners. The fact that some of these furry animals may be infected with diseases like rabies drives home the case for needing to safely take all of them out of the picture. Experts at wildlife and animal removal outfits such as the crew at Skedaddle Wildlife are what you need to make it happen.
The initial order of business in a wildlife removal operation is to identify all entry points and hotspots at the client’s location, whether they are facing a skunk or raccoon problem, or even other creatures. Skunks, in particular, are usually found in the tight spots at porches or decks; raccoons use their paws to break through roofing structures and usually nest in the attic. In the case of the Dodger Stadium, some of these furry critters were seen at souvenir kiosks, the stands, or even running across the playing field. Stadium employees are wary of the possibility they could be hanging around food concessionaires in the future.
A humane solution is often the best bet when dealing with animals like skunks and raccoons, and often involves the wildlife technicians wearing safety equipment. The crews would carefully remove the animals and place them in climate-controlled boxes before taking them all away from the location. The LA Times reported that stadium employees used brooms to, at least, corner the animals before boxing them and taking them to a far-off location from the city; it is not known if animal removal experts joined the effort.
The period after the removal is also critical due to the lasting effects of the animals’ waste – and possible damage to the electrical system from chewed wiring. A Greate Toronto Area wildlife removal crew can come in and clean up the location, particularly the places where the animal nests were found. Defensive measures such as heavy gauge wire screens and repellent will be used to prevent a return of the feral animals.
Canada’s sporting facilities are among the world’s finest, but also require sufficient safeguards to deter infestations by unwelcome feral animals which abound in the country’s great outdoors. Humanely removing any encroaching beast with help from trusted wildlife management specialists like Skedaddle helps maintain the prestige of these sports arenas.
