Why Is Humane Wildlife Control Important?When a wild animal enters your home or building, it poses a risk to the health and safety of all residents and pets. You may think killing the intruder is the right solution, but some animals are protected by law. At Skedaddle, we employ professionals who know how to remove wild animals without causing further harm. Some animals become especially dangerous if they have babies or nests nearby. We take a humane approach to remove the risk from you and your family, without causing the animal further harm. You might think that traps are an effective form of wildlife control; however, traps are cruel to unwanted intruders. They don’t provide a quick death, and animals have been known to injure themselves trying to escape. You run the risk of being bitten by a trapped animal. Glue boards, in particular, also pose a threat to certain pets. For example, a cat or small dog would probably require veterinary intervention to remove a glue board, especially with a loss of skin or fur. Furthermore, these traps aren’t effective deterrents to wild animals and pests. We also advise against the use of poisonous baits for animal controls. These baits are often scented to attract pests, and they may attract your household pets, leading to sickness or death from ingestion. Even children can be poisoned by baits. At Skedaddle, we emphasize compassionate animal control not just for the benefit of intruders, but for that of your pets and children as well.
