Wildlife removal has become a growing business. Understanding how to get rid of raccoons from attics, the way to eliminate squirrels nesting and from chewing on your residence, or even how to get rid of an armadillo from digging up your yard has become more challenging for homeowners and property managers to handle.
The issue has become to big for towns to handle so a new industry has been born, Nuisance Wildlife Removal. The most common nuisance wildlife is raccoons, squirrels, rats, rats, opossums, skunks, snakes, and armadillos. Wild hogs have recently come to be a frequent annoyance. Hogs largely have effected the plantation business and ranching, but is becoming an urban nuisance too.
The raccoon population in urban areas has exploded in the last ten decades. Raccoons living in sewers have accommodated to moving their houses from trees to understanding how to enter attics and chimneys. Removing a raccoon should only be attempted by a trained professional. It's dangerous setting a snare with a living raccoon in a loft. The raccoon could be nursing raccoon pups and be very protective of her young. It might be a situation that the homeowner doesn't understand the pups have grown to full size and may be attacked by five or four raccoons at once. As one can see, a loft is dangerous because it does not have any flooring. When a trap is in the rear of an attic with a mother raccoon, then you have no floors to escape quickly. Therefore people falling through the attic (the ceiling) can cause significant injury, and of course that mother raccoon following you down.
Squirrels chewing through siding enter an attic or in between floors has always been a common annoyance for homeowners. Once in the attic squirrels can naw on wires creating a significant fire hazard and costly electrical contractor invoices for your rewiring. The best method of ways to eliminate squirrels is one way traps set on the entrance point to the structure. This way the squirrel depart on their own but can't re-enter. If the mosquito is persistent, another option is to trap and remove the squirrel to a lawful wildlife refuge.
Armadillos, skunks, and opossums commonly take up urban residence. Cities will only come and pick them up in case you already have them trapped. Rats and bats must immediately be removed from structures before they populate the house.
