Understanding Animal Removal and Animal Control

The terms animal removal and animal control are synonymous with seeing creatures taken from the home when they do not belong. Homeowners quickly find that pests, both small and large, like to try and become non-paying tenants. It is important to learn about animal control and removal as a homeowner so you know what to do.

Recognizing the Signs

To begin, you need to learn the signs that a creature is present in the home. For mice and rats, you will begin to see droppings around the borders of rooms as well as possibly in kitchen cabinets. Food left out may be missing the next morning and boxes and packaged foods may appear nibbled on.

For squirrels and raccoons, they like to live in the attic so you will hear noises from above. Squirrels can even enter into the walls of the home so you may find at night you hear scurrying in the walls of your home. These are indicators that the creatures are living in your home.

A big sign is actually seeing the animal, either inside your home or entering in some way, be it vents on the roof or crawlspace. If you see pests of any kind, it is time to contact animal control for assistance.

Removal of the Pest

With wildlife control, you will see an expert come to your home and evaluate the situation. As a professional in the field, the expert will know what to look for to identify what animal or pest problem you have as well as come up with a plan for removal. Once a plan has been created, action begins. In no time, the pests are captured and chased from the home. Recommendations will be made on cleaning and restoring any areas of the home that may have been affected.

Any pest in the home is going to leave behind urine, feces and damaged areas from chewing or nesting. You want to clean all areas that have been affected as well as replace any damaged wiring, wood boards, etc. You want your home to be back in excellent condition to maintain value as well as provide a quality place to live.

At Risk

When a wild animal enters the home, your family is at risk. Wild animals can be dangerous and if confronted can attack. Wild animals also can be carriers of disease that can affect humans. Diseases can be transferred via scratch or bite as well as through saliva, feces and urine. Urine and feces can let loose disease which can be transferred via the ductwork of the home when the heating or cooling units are used. When this happens, those living in the home can become sick.

All homeowners should keep away from wild animals and contact assistance as soon as problem arises. The expert can take care of the animal safely without anyone getting hurt.

When you have a pest problem in your home, never hesitate to contact Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control. You will have a solution for your pest problem that is quick and painless, leaving your home free from unwanted creatures!
