Humane Removal of Wildlife from your Property

In urban areas wildlife like birds, raccoons, bats, skunks and various species of rodents can have a difficult time finding an appropriate refuge to call home. Often these creatures seek out shelter by nesting and burrowing in homes. Attics, basements, the insulation between walls and virtually any other accessible warm pocket can draw animals to your home. If you begin to hear rustling or scratching in the walls and discover evidence of nesting around your property, it’s time to call a wildlife removal agency.

Why you should hire a pest control company to remove wildlife from your property humanely

1. Protect Yourself and the Environment

It is very tempting to deal with wildlife infestation on your own. Most homeowners will assume that they can remove the wildlife themselves without trouble. The truth is, for the untrained, wildlife removal can be a dangerous endeavor. Animals often nest in odd pockets which may prove extremely challenging for humans to access. Attempting removal without the appropriate equipment can unnecessarily expose people to whatever diseases the animals may be carrying.

In addition to keeping people safe, contacting a professional and humane wildlife removal services can spare the life of the animal. When eliminating wildlife infestation in your homes, it is crucial to remember that even an urban area is a shared living space between animals and humans. While animals may unknowingly venture into human territory during particularly seasons like the spring and winter months when shelter and food are scarce, there is no need to kill or injure animals to remove them from your property.

Contrary to what some removal companies may advertise, wildlife removal that preserves the animal’s life is both safe and legal. When choosing a wildlife removal service ensure the technicians are aware of proper removal techniques and are licensed to do so.

2. Fortifying You Home Against Future Wildlife Invasion

When an animal risks inhabiting a space in such proximity to humans, there’s always a reason. Easy access to food or shelter are the primary draws. Ask yourself: Is your food waste properly secured? Are there cracks or openings in your home’s foundation? Is your roof properly sealed?

To avoid future infestations, you’ll have to find the root of the problem. A wildlife removal service will help you with this. Know how to securely store garbage in a way that is inaccessible to wildlife and how to patch up suspicious openings. Hiring a humane service will ensure that the techniques used in fortifying your home will not cause harm to wildlife that interact with your property in the future. There is absolutely no need to utilize toxic chemicals or other lethal methods when dealing with animal intruders. Such methods will unnecessarily harm your local wildlife, and threaten the health of your family.  Here is a video showing you how to wildlife proof your property.

Wildlife such as bats, raccoons and skunks all have natural instincts when faced with a predator, and to them you are a predator.  This can make their behaviour a bit unpredictable  and as cute as they may be they are not domesticated animals.  You need someone with some experience to remove them without harming the animal, yourself and while causing minimal damage to your home

The most important thing in today’s society is feeling that you are safe and secure. We are not just talking about financial stability or about living in a safe neighborhood, everybody wants security. But what happens when you move into a new house with nice lawn and good neighbors living nearby, just to find out soon that the place has a tiny little problem: insects. Even though it sounds like a small problem, well, it isn’t. So what are you going to do then, sell the place and move out? Of course not. Your next step will be to call an exterminator.

Researching Exterminators

So you’ve done a little research, you found a couple of exterminators that are located in your neighbourhood and you’re ready to call one. But how do you chose the perfect one? Well, your first thoughts will be to chose the one that helps you get rid of your problem quickly, and in the same time is cheap enough. We all want this after all, but this is exactly where you have to be careful.

So how do you get rid of the insects and in the same time keep you and your family safe from getting sick. Simple, you choose an environmentally friendly exterminator.

Environmentally Friendly Exterminators

Eco-friendly exterminators are as effective as the regular exterminators but they come with an important upgrade: the substances they are using are 100% non-toxic. With today’s pollution becoming a more alarming issue, its imperative to reduce this kind of exposure wherever we can. So starting with our homes is the best thing we can do.

But still, there are a lot of so called “Eco-friendly exterminators” that are using toxic substances just because they are cheaper. So what you need to do while calling one is to simply ask them what products are there going to use. After that, you should search on the internet what substances that product contains. We know that not everybody is a chemist and for most of us the names of the substances are like hearing a foreign language for the first time. But there is a solution for this too. You simply check http://www.pesticideinfo.org, a website that contains all the substances alphabetically and explains their actions.

Maybe the exterminator will not like you asking too many questions or questioning details but you have to think that you are doing this for your family safety. So between being friends with the exterminator or keeping your family safe, I think we all know what you would chose.
