Over the past few decades, humans have continually encroached into wild habitats. Consequently, the number of wildlife-human interactions has been on the rise. Sooner or later, you’re going to have to deal with one – whether it’s a raccoon living in your attic or rats residing under your house, or bats roosting in your chimney. Unfortunately, wildlife infestations can be costly because of the damages these animals cause – from tearing off the insulation to leaving behind a great deal of organic waste. That’s why it’s crucial to resolve infestation issues as soon as they arrive.
So, what are your options? You can either opt to do it yourself or get a professional involved. In this article, we explore five key benefits of hiring wildlife removal professionals.
A Personalized Solution
No two wildlife infestations are the same. That’s why a custom solution is required to achieve the desired results. For instance, something as simple as setting effective mouse traps is dependent on several factors. Examples include the areas of high activity and the location of entryways, among many others. These factors determine the proper trap placement. But without a thorough understanding of the interplay of these factors, you might struggle even to kill them. On the other hand, professionals first perform a thorough inspection to understand the peculiarities of your infestation problems. Based on that, they come up with an effective removal plan. District Wildlife Solutions offer a free inspection, and our solutions come with a warranty to give you absolute peace of mind.
It’s not just enough to exclude or eliminate wildlife. It must also be done in a way that causes the slightest discomfort to animals. That’s why reputable wildlife removal companies are particular about removing the animal in the safest way possible. For instance, the exclusion method is generally a preferred option. But when you exclude a raccoon with kits from your attic, you separate the mother from her babies. The babies will eventually die of abandonment. Professional wildlife companies ensure that whatever approach they take is safe for all parties involved.
Ensuring Your Safety
Wild animals can be dangerous. For instance, a raccoon in the attic may attack you if it feels cornered or threatened. What’s more, wild animals carry thousands of zoonotic diseases that can affect both humans and pets. Some of these diseases are fatal if left untreated. That’s why it’s best to leave wildlife removal to experts, especially if you do not understand the behavior of the animal you’re dealing with. Try to make your safety and that of your family a top priority.
Wildlife removal professionals have a wealth of experience in this field, so they are very effective in their work. First off, they know what to assess, and they develop and implement an effective removal plan quickly. What’s more, they ensure that they put measures to prevent the return of other nuisance wildlife. They primarily accomplish this by sealing all potential entry holes. What’s more, some even go as far as to offer guarantees for their services.
They Repair Damages
In most instances, getting rid of the nuisance wildlife is only half the battle. Why? Because wild critters cause lots of destruction. Animals like raccoons and rodents will tear off the insulation and chew on wood, wires, and pipes. Bats, in particular, leave large deposits of droppings (known as guano). Their acidic droppings quickly deteriorate building materials. Animal droppings also pollute the entire area and may soil the insulation.
So even if you manage to get rid of the wild critter, you still need to take care of the necessary repairs – which may range from replacing the entire insulation to installing a chimney cap. Without the know-how, you need to find a company that will carry out these repairs. And finally, note that it’s best to work with a robust professional wildlife company that can provide a comprehensive service that covers everything from removal to clean up and repairs.
