We’ll highlight some telltale signs that you might need assistance from an experienced wildlife technician
Seeing an animal in your home, or around your porch, garden, or shed.
If there is a bat present in your home, it may indicate a maternal colony living in your attic! Furthermore, it informs us there are entry points, or weak spots, around the exterior of your home allowing the bats to enter. Additionally, squirrels enter through unprotected chimneys or chew through components of the home. Other common animals lurking around your property include raccoons, opossums, mice, and birds.
Noticing damaged elements around your home.
Fascia, wooden components, gutters, and vents are a few examples that are exploited by a variety of animals.
The presence of animal droppings or nesting materials in the home.
Many animal droppings are highly hazardous, and cleanup should be handled by a professional wildlife technician. Moreover, bat droppings (guano), mice droppings, and opossum droppings are just a few common examples we often observe inside homes.
Burrows or tunneling in your yard or garden.
Moles and voles are usually responsible for tunneling and burrowing. In addition, moles will tear up your yard and create a large mess of molehills throughout your yard, destroying grassroots and plant roots along the way.
Pets sprayed by a skunk multiple times.
This usually indicates a skunk or a family of skunks are living on or near your property. For skunk removal, we only use traps approved by the NWCOA.
Trash dug through on multiple occasions
The culprits behind this are usually raccoons or possums, they will eat anything! Opossums also carry EPM which affects the spinal cords of horses.
Chirping or scratching sounds coming from attics or walls.
Bats, squirrels, and mice are just a few animals that cause noises like this in your home. Mice can get into walls and in some cases, trapped. Bats are often cause scratching and chirping noises.
