SKUNK REMOVAL

SKUNK REMOVAL SERVICES

 

The skunk is one of the most easily recognized mammals around. Regardless of whether you’ve been on the receiving end of skunk spray, you doubtless know the sour, offensive odor well. It is no surprise that the thought of a skunk occupying your living space is decidedly disturbing. You may think that skunks lurking around your property are generally harmless, provided they aren’t spraying yourself or your pets, sadly, that is not the case. Skunks commonly take up residence in crawl spaces, sheds or beneath decks. Not only can they cause significant damage to your property, but they also spray ‘their’ territory to signal their presence to other skunks. Imagine waking up every morning with the sweet scent of fresh skunk wafting through your bedroom window. The best way to safeguard against skunk occupation is to consult a professional for removal services:

We’ve all observed Squirrels in their natural habitats, foraging, frolicking and chattering amongst themselves. Many of us even enjoy watching their playful antics – charming little creatures romping outdoors, in their natural habitat. When the game moves inside your home, however, you may find yourself considerably less amused.Squirrels often are as unhappy to be in your home as you are to host them. Sometimes, though, they have moved in for nesting purposes. Either way, it is crucial to enlist the help of a professional to return the squirrels to their natural habitat as soon as possible. Squirrels are rodents, and as such, they chew instinctively and nearly continuously to keep their teeth from becoming overgrown. The damage can become severe very quickly, so it is in your best interest to call us for an evaluation right away. Some concerns to keep in mind include:

MICE & RAT REMOVAL

MICE & RAT REMOVAL

 

You’ve undoubtedly encountered rats or mice in your home at some point in your life. If you haven’t seen them streaking across your floor in search of safety, you’ve undoubtedly seen the evidence of their presence. They leave a large volume of small, recognizable droppings and the skittering sound of their activities is unmistakable. Rats and mice are incredibly common in North America. Usually, we can live relatively harmoniously alongside them – but when they enter your home, it can become an immediate cause for concern. Both Rats and Mice are prolific procreators. They reach sexual maturity at a young age and deliver many young at once. This ability to rapidly multiply makes infestations considerably more troublesome. The idea of sharing your intimate spaces with an army of small, disease-carrying rodents, likely doesn’t fill you with pleasure. Consider the following points, and call a professional for assistance as soon as the problem is identified.

DAMAGE TO YOUR HOME Rats and mice are highly destructive critters; they can quickly wreak havoc on the structures inside your home

DISEASE mice and rats carry diseases which pose a threat to yourself, your children and your pets

RE-ENTRY Rats and mice can enter your home through virtually any number of small access points.

POSSUM REMOVAL 

Possums, formally known as Opossums, are the most common marsupial mammals in North America. Due to their ability to adjust their diets, breed rapidly and adapt to diverse environments, you’ve likely encountered at least one in your lifetime. They are best known for their unique and convincing ability to play dead, commonly referred to as “Playing Possum.” You will likely first notice an Opossum occupation of your home by the smell. They emit a pungent odor, and their urine and feces are also particularly fragrant. Possums are opportunistic nesters, rarely building anything of their own, which makes human-made structures especially appealing to them. Mother Opossums give birth to very large litters (as many as 13 babies can survive), so your single Possum problem can rapidly multiply. Consider the following points, and call a professional for assistance as soon as the problem is identified:

BAT REMOVAL

Bats are unique and fascinating creatures. The only mammal capable of sustained flight, they understandably seem to us as strange and unpredictable critters. Though they feature prominently in some of our most violent and unsettling mythology, they are almost universally harmless fruit or insect eaters. That said, bats can cause considerable discomfort when found in your home, and they are known to carry rabies, which can be transferred to yourself and your pets. Bats can be found in the home, most often during the spring and early summer when they are preparing to birth and raise their young. They cling to high spots, preferring attics, chimneys, and ceilings, as they need a vertical drop to begin flight. In being nocturnal, bats will rest silently in a closet and emerge while you sleep. Unless the thought of being bitten by a bat while asleep appeals to you, bat infestations should be addressed at once. Some concerns particular to bats in the home include:

DAMAGE TO YOUR HOME Bats can enter your home through gaps as small as 1 inch in diameter

DISEASE Bats are known to carry rabies, which can easily be passed on to a pet or yourself

RE-ENTRY Bats must be removed before they can deliver their young, they are far more difficult to remove after

BIRD REMOVAL

We’ve all grown accustomed to living alongside birds of all types. From pigeons to geese to the common sparrow, birds are everywhere that we go. Occasionally, however, you may find yourself slightly closer to a bird than you’d ever intended to be. The reality of our proximity to so many birds makes it likely that at some point you will find them roosting, nesting or chirping in a spot where you’d much rather they did not.

Birds make somewhat inconvenient roommates. They often sing, loudly, and at hours which are unlikely to fit seamlessly into your routine. Their little feet make a surprisingly irritating level of scratching, pattering noises. Birds also tend to attract more birds, and a single bird in your eaves or attic can quickly become an entire family of them. Pigeons are known to arrive in numbers, remain persistently, and overstay their welcome. If you find yourself hosting some unwelcome feathered friends, give us a call for a free evaluation and keep the following points in mind:

DAMAGE TO YOUR HOME Birds can cause considerable damage to your eaves, roof, and home

DISEASE Birds carry diseases which pose a threat to yourself, your children and your pets

RE-ENTRY Birds should be removed as soon as possible to avoid nesting and chicks adding to the problem
