Wild Animal Control Tip of the Month

Critters in the attic

When you have wild animals, for example a raccoon or some squirrels, living in your attic, it is important that you have the creatures removed humanely and safely for many reasons. Rats, squirrels, mice, bats, and many creatures like these will often seek out homes just like yours because of the many things it has to offer. Manmade spaces offer so many advantages to a wild animal, such as a home that is safe away from any predators, a place that can provide shelter from the rain, warmth when it is cold, a supple of food nearby and even a place to raise their young.

This is very much so the case when an animal such as a raccoon or even possum chooses to live in your attic and your heart has to go out to it a little bit. If you love your home, it is no wonder the wild critters loves it too. The animal doesn’t really want to cause you any problems, it is just looking for someone to settle.

As much as you would love to offer these animals your home as their own, or not as the case may be, there are so many problems that would often accompany them with is why attic animal removal companies are a necessity. There is the physical damage that rodents with chewing, or raccoons with their strong hands, or bats with their droppings, and many other wild animals can do. Other examples include ruining the drywall by climbing and scratching through it, bringing lots of horrible diseases, dying in small crevices and even using your home as a public toilet, which is unhygienic to say the least.

Removing wildlife from homes is not an easy task, but it can be done effectively and humanely. Often, and animal can be excluded without the use of trapping, but in many cases, specialized traps must be used as is appropriate to the animal and situation. Regardless of how the animals are removed, it is essential to seal shut all entry holes into the house, so that no wildlife can enter your house again.

Firstly the offenders must be removed. You can hire a professional to come and set traps to remove your uninvited houseguests, or save some money and do the hard yards yourself. Either way, don't waste any time, get them out as soon as possible as the damage they can do by chewing is amazing. If you choose the DIY option, purchase a good quality trap and bait it with your choice of the following squirrel delicacies - peanut butter, sunflower seeds, peanuts, pop corn – or any kind of grain or cereal. It is worth spending a bit more on a trap that will work and trap the animal as soon as it enters. Mix up the food choices a bit - if one doesn't work, try another 'til you catch your little stowaways, and don't give up till you know you've got them all, including any babies. Once you have caught your offender (s), take them far, far away - preferably where they won't move into someone else's attic and plague them the same way they tormented you!

The next step is a trip to the hardware store and the services of a (very) handy – man. Every access point needs to be sealed up so the little rascals can't enter. Remember, once they have staked their claim, they'll do everything to get back to that cozy little home-sweet-home! Vents and grills are like an open door with a red carpet, so get some heavy duty mesh that can't be chewed through, or the equivalent and secure them.

Search till you locate the entry/exit point used and block it off, always remembering to use something they can't chew through. Squirrels keep their teeth in shape by chewing hard substances like metal and wood, so you'll have to bring out the big guns – there must be absolutely no way they can chew through your barrier of choice. Another preventative measure which may also help in seeing off squirrels is to put fox urine (purchased from hunting stores) on rags and leave them in the attic – the whiff of a predator should help to send them running for the hills. Once out, seal everything up so they can't come back. Remember: patience, persistence and perseverance!
