Common Wildlife Infestations

If you live in Butler County, you’re probably already familiar with much of the wildlife in the area.

If you’re an animal lover, it can be a joy to hear the morning bird song outside your window or to watch a coyote or fox move stealthily through your yard at night. 

The problem starts when the wildlife of the great outdoors starts making its way indoors.

Squirrels, bats, or rats are often found making homes in your attic. They can go unnoticed for a while. Then you may hear that distinct “skittering” sound coming from the walls. Unfortunately, at that point, they’re usually pretty well established inside your home.

Skunks and groundhogs can be found tearing up your yard, or digging under your house, shed, and other outdoor structures. Coyotes can threaten household pets and small children when they wander into urban and suburban areas looking for food. 

And almost everyone has had a run-in with raccoons. Some of them make national headlines with their antics, like this cheeky “trash panda” from Toronto. They’ll often be nosing through the trash, but they can climb up into attics or under porches and sheds and become a major nuisance. 

Health Risks and Property Damage From Wildlife Infestation

Most of us don’t want wild animals living inside our homes for a good reason.

Many of these animals carry diseases that are harmful to humans. Rodents alone carry dozens of diseases that can be deadly to humans. These diseases include Hantavirus, Typhus, and Salmonella, among others. 

These diseases can be transmitted through direct contact with the animal. They can also be spread by coming in contact with feces and urine left behind. 

That’s why it is essential to have a professional handle the trapping and removal of the animal or animals. And to have them do full decontamination of the infestation area to ensure there are no disease-carrying droppings left behind. 

In addition to the health risks, property damage from wildlife in your home can be extensive. 

Animals digging under your home pose a threat to the structural integrity of your foundation. And animals that nest in your attic will often tear up insulation and wiring, compromising the integrity of your home.

And whether in your attic, under your foundation, or in your garage or shed, the build-up of fecal matter and urine promotes harmful mold growth.

As well as compromising your building’s structural integrity, this poses an additional health risk. If inside your home, that can spread through your home’s ventilation system. This exposes you and your family to the risk of respiratory infections. 

Humane Wildlife Removal Techniques and Equipment

You can appreciate the benefits of humane wildlife removal even if you’re not an animal lover.

These animals don’t mean to be a nuisance and, in most cases, want to avoid human contact at all costs. They end up inside your home because they are looking for shelter and often for a safe place to raise their young. 

It’s not the animal’s fault that, like us, they are attracted to these sheltered structures we humans have created. The best thing we can do is humanely remove the animals and take preventative measures so they cannot return. 

The first step to doing this is to have a professional conduct an inspection for wildlife activities. A professional can identify where an animal may be nesting, what entry points they’re using, and what the best removal method is based on the animal species causing the infestation. 

In many cases, a wildlife exclusion method is the first step in removal. Essentially, this is a “one-way door” that allows the animal to leave your home but through which they cannot reenter. These one-way exits are installed temporarily until all the animals are out of the area. 

After the area is clear, a crew will begin clean-up. This involved removing all droppings and conducting decontamination and sanitation of the area.

Then, the crew will permanently seal off the entry points the animals were using to access your home. Finally, the crew will repair damaged insulation, wiring, and structural elements to restore your home to its original pre-infestation conditions.
