Skunk Trapping and Removal

  • Do Skunks Burrow Underground?

  • Prevention Of Squirrel Infestations

  • Do Mothballs and Ammonia Help Repel Skunks?

Dealing with urban animals is an inconvenience that many home owners in the northern US and southern Canada face. One of the major concerns is that, bats can transmit rabies to humans. Though less than 1% of bats carry the rabies virus and transmit it, it is difficult to say if a colony of bats that is residing in the house has it or not. Regardless the method of capture, the prey is consumed whole. I've seen adults cowering up on chairs, shaking. They can also carry fleas, ticks, lice, mites, and more that can spread through the home. Often it's just a matter of ignorance - people don't know which snakes are venomous and which are not, so they are naturally cautious around all snakes. Snakes often mate in the spring.

  • What Do Raccoons Eat?

  • Steps to Prevent Squirrel Entry in Crawl Space, Basement or Attic

They tolerate and even prefer very high temperatures. Allowing bats to continue taking up residence in your home can lead to greater worries, including health problems and serious damage to your home. They can also carry fleas, ticks, lice, mites, and more that can spread through the home. Their mere presence is a threat to your health since they are known carriers of infectious diseases like Leptospirosis, as well as the Rabies virus. These colonies are composed primarily of females. They find shelter as well as safety from their predators. They find their food sources in garbage cans or pet food tins. In addition to bat removal, we can handle repairs to your property and take preventative measures so you don’t have to worry about those pesky bats returning. Once they do, they lash out and inject their venom into the victim, waiting for it to become incapacitated before they start to eat it.

How to Get Rid of Squirrels From An Attic

  • If There is a Raccoon in My Attic, How Likely is It to Come Down into My Home?

Not only do the droppings and urine corrode wood/metal, but the weight of them can collapse the ceiling below the attic - I've seen if a few times. However, this is part of what separates the cottonmouth from other snakes that emit this toxin. They seek out these areas for warm shelter and safe breeding. Mother raccoons will make their nests and birth their young, caring for them all winter long until spring brings more suitable weather. It only takes one season for a raccoon colony to cause a heap of destruction in your home. Most venomous species in the U.S. are a type of pit viper, including copperheads and rattlesnakes. Snake removal is usually less expensive than the average wildlife control job. There are many species of snakes in the United States that can be extremely dangerous should you be bitten by one. Non Venomous snakes use constriction to subdue their prey.
