Wildlife Removal

February 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 77

Wildlife removal has become a growing industry. Knowing how to get rid of raccoons from attics, how to get rid of squirrels nesting and from chewing on your house, or even how to get rid of an armadillo from digging up your lawn has become more difficult for homeowners and property managers to manage.

The problem has become to large for cities to handle so a new industry has been born, Nuisance Wildlife Removal. The most common nuisance wildlife is raccoons, squirrels, rats, bats, opossums, skunks, snakes, and armadillos. Wild hogs have recently become a common nuisance. Hogs mostly have effected the farm industry and ranching, but is becoming an urban nuisance as well.

The raccoon population in urban areas has exploded in the past ten years. Raccoons living in sewers have adapted to moving their homes from trees to learning how to enter attics and chimneys. Removing a raccoon should only be attempted by a trained professional. It is dangerous setting a trap with a living raccoon in an attic. The raccoon could be nursing raccoon pups and be very protective of her young. It could be a situation that the homeowner does not know that the pups have grown to full size and could be attacked by four or five raccoons at one time. As one can see, an attic is dangerous because it has no flooring. If a trap is in the back of an attic with a mother raccoon, you have no flooring to escape quickly. Therefore people falling through the attic (the ceiling) can cause serious injury, not to mention that mother raccoon following you down.

Squirrels chewing through siding to enter an attic or in between floors has always been a common nuisance for homeowners. Once in the attic squirrels can naw on wires creating a serious fire hazard and expensive electrical contractor bills for the rewiring. The best method of how to get rid of squirrels is one way traps set on the entry point to the structure. This way the squirrel leave on their own but cannot re-enter. If the squirrel is persistent, the next option is to trap and remove the squirrel to a legal wildlife refuge.

Armadillos, skunks, and opossums commonly take up urban residence. Cities will only come and pick them up if you already have them trapped. Rats and bats should quickly be removed from structures before they over populate the property.

Wildlife removal has become a separate industry from pest control. A wildlife removal company will use natural methods of removal and traps to get rid of the nuisance animals. Pest control uses chemicals to control insects.

I have been in the nuisance wildlife industry for sixteen years and owner operate a nuisance wildlife service in Dallas and Houston.
