Wildlife Removal

Wildlife Removal Service

Nuisance wildlife management is the term given to the process of selective removal of problem individuals or populations of specific species of wildlife. Other terms for the field, include wildlife damage management,wildlife control, and animal damage control to name a few. Some species of wildlife may become habituated to man’s presence, causing property damage or risking transfer of disease to humans or pets. Many wildlife species coexist with humans very successfully, such as rodents which have become more or less dependent on humans. Bats, raccoons and skunks are some of the most common wild animals that invade homes. Proactive wildlife and animal control is necessary, as these and many other types of nuisance wildlife can be frequent carriers of rabies, a disease that is potentially fatal if left untreated. In fact, as many as 40,000 people each year in the United States are exposed to animals that might have rabies, and must receive preventive treatments. Occasionally a raccoon, skunk, tree squirrel, or other animal will find a suitable shelter in or under a house, shed, or other structure. These animals may occupy an area sporadically, using the site only two or three consecutive days or nights usually until available food sources are exhausted. However, some may choose to overwinter there if the surroundings remain favorable. During the mating and nesting season, females attracted to warm, dry, easily defended areas may attempt to den or nest in these settings.
You may choose to let the animal use the area if it doesn’t pose a direct problem to you, your family, or your pets and other animals. However, its discarded food, urine, or droppings may create odors and become a potential health hazard. Animals also may make considerable noise, chew on building parts, or destroy insulation during the nest building process. Before anything else occurs in a wildlife/human conflict in or around a structure, it is absolutely necessary to be sure of the following: the species involved, where the animal(s) are entering, and whether or not young animals are present. After that it is important to proceed in such a way that is humane and prevents the problem from reoccurring
