Wildlife Removal: An Overview

Every wildlife problem requires a unique solution based on the animal causing the infestation. The best wildlife removal services will be experts on animal behavior and implement humane removal techniques to take care of the problem safely and effectively. 

Do you have a pest problem in your home? Here’s a list of some of the most common animals that cause problems for homeowners. 

Squirrel Removal

Did you know that squirrels cause an estimated 10-20% of all power outages in the United States? Talk about a pesky pest! 

When squirrels get in your home, they’ll chew through wires, tear up insulation, and create holes in your siding—compromising the integrity of your home. 

Proper squirrel removal takes a multi-pronged approach. Constructing one-way exclusion tunnels humanely gets rid of squirrels by giving them an exit through which they cannot return.

After all the squirrels have been cleared from your attic or other areas of the home, entry points can then be permanently sealed off, debris and fecal matter cleaned, and the damage repaired.

Raccoon Removal

You’re probably very familiar with these little critters, lovingly—or not so lovingly—nicknamed the “trash panda.” 

Many raccoons are unfortunately very habituated to humans and spend a lot of time investigating our trash and gardens and sometimes finding their way into our homes. 

This is especially dangerous because raccoons can carry many diseases, accounting for 50% of rabies cases in wild animals. It’s crucial to have raccoon trapping and removal done by a certified and licensed professional. 

A pro can assess the area and determine the access points the raccoon is using to get into your home. They can also be sure there isn’t a litter of newborns in the area that may be left behind if a momma raccoon is trapped and removed.

Skunk Removal

Have you ever unexpectedly come across a skunk in your Mack, Dent or Monfort Heights yard or driveway? It can be a heart-racing experience, as you wonder if you will get sprayed. 

Skunks are non-aggressive animals but have pretty poor eyesight and are easily startled, causing them to turn their tail at you. The best thing to do when you see a skunk: is stop moving.

Sudden movement—like running away quickly—will scare them and trigger them to spray. Standing still allows them the opportunity to scamper away once they notice you. 

A skunk that has made its home under your porch or in your garage can quickly become a problem, especially if the animal ever feels cornered by you. The best and most humane solution is to have a professional trap them in a live cage trap and transport them to a location far away.

Bird Removal

Many of us encourage birds to visit our yards by installing birdhouses and feeders, so we can enjoy looking at these beautiful creatures.

But when they start making their nests in our homes, it becomes a problem. Birds carry several disease-causing bacteria and parasites that are harmful to human health. In addition, they cause extensive property damage by nesting in exhaust vents, on rooftops and ledges, and on other building structures.

There are various humane removal techniques that may vary depending on the species of bird currently inhabiting your home. Have a professional evaluate the infestation and make a plan for pest removal, damage and waste cleanup, and prevention for re-infestation.

Bat Removal

Bats are fascinating animals and one of nature’s best pest controllers. Have you ever been enjoying a summer evening outside and noticed bats swooping overhead? Those little critters are taking care of the mosquitos for you, and one little brown bat can eat as much as 1,000 mosquitos per hour. You’re welcome. 

Unfortunately, bat populations have been seeing declines worldwide due to white-nose syndrome, and many bat species are becoming endangered or going extinct. 

An important part of protecting these threatened species is safe and human removal from your home where they do not belong. This includes constructing one-way exclusion structures and sealings off entry ports so they cannot return.

Once your home is bat-free, thorough professional cleaning to remove bat guano is essential, as bat guano can contain Histoplasma capsulate fungus, which, if inhaled, can cause a severe lung infection in humans

Groundhog Removal

Of all the animals on this list, groundhogs, also referred to as woodchucks, probably pose the lowest risk to human health and safety. But these little guys can do extensive damage to your yards and gardens.

And if you’ve got cracks in your foundation or other unsealed points, they’ll get up under your house and start making a mess. 

Luckily, they’re relatively easy to trap. Though for the safety of you and the animal, it’s always best to leave any trapping to the professionals. Once trapped, the groundhog must be taken at least five miles away, or else it will find its way back to your property.

Coyote Removal

Coyotes generally stay away from humans but may move into suburban areas like Mack, Dent and Monfort Heights if they are stressed and desperate for food. This makes them a threat to pets and young children.

If you are having problems with coyotes, you should never attempt to handle them yourself. These are wild animals, between 32-40 pounds, and will defend themselves if provoked. 

Even if you successfully remove a coyote without installing deterrents around your property, another coyote will soon take its place.
