Where are they hiding? Why you should contact Wildlife Control

When you purchase a new home, you don’t expect to share it with anyone else. However, new homeowners often find out rather quickly that critters like to take up residency in comfy homes, living in attic and crawl spaces, walls and other hiding places. As a homeowner, you will need to learn the signs that you have uninvited guests. Then Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control can be called and the pests can be removed from your home. Animal control services in Halifax will ensure your pests are removed in a humane fashion and taken far away from your neighborhood.

Wildlife love to hide in dark, cramped and hard to reach places

Why Pests Enter the Homes of Humans

You may be wondering why creatures such as bats, mice, rats, raccoons and even squirrels like to live in a home with humans. Often times, these creatures are just seeking a safe place in which to nest and have a family. Attics are particularly inviting as they are usually empty and unused, offering insulation and other materials that can be used to create a nest. Such creatures will use your home as their dwelling due to warm temperatures as well as a safety precaution from predators.

Why Animal Control is Needed

When you find that pests have entered your home, they must be removed. For one, the creatures are wild, but they also carry diseases. From mice to bats and raccoons, each animal can carry disease which can be spread due to saliva, droppings or urine. These creatures should be removed from your home as quickly as possible so that you can avoid an unhealthy environment.

Signs of Pests

As the homeowner, you should learn the common signs that pests are present. When animals are living in your attic or walls, you will begin to hear sounds of movement. Squirrels and mice are particularly noisy when moving in these areas. You may also begin to find droppings spread throughout the home, usually around baseboards, in cabinets or other hidden areas. You may even actually see the creature running throughout your house..

Mice and rats will tend to get into your food source, so you may find that packages of food have been open or chewed on. Food may also go missing if it was left out the night before.

Whenever you see any of these signs, wildlife control should be contacted immediately. An experienced technician will then arrive at your home and offer you quality removal services. Humane methods are used by Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control to ensure the safety of everyone in your home as well as the safety of the animal.

Once you spot signs of an unwanted creature in your home, contact Skedaddle Humane  Wildlife Control for assistance. We are happy to provide you with the services you need to see the pests removed and your home restored to normal daily life. Preventative measures will be offered to ensure the animal type does not enter your home again and cleaning methods suggested to remove any contaminated materials from your home.
