Wildlife removal has developed into a growing industry. Finding out how to reduce raccoons from attics, getting rid of squirrels nesting and from chewing on the house, or even how to get reduce an armadillo from digging the lawn is becoming more challenging for homeowners and property managers to handle.
The challenge has grown to be to large for cities to deal with so a whole new industry has become born, Nuisance Wildlife Removal. The most frequent nuisance wildlife is raccoons, squirrels, rats, bats, opossums, skunks, snakes, and armadillos. Wild hogs have become a common nuisance. Hogs mostly have effected the farm industry and ranching, but has become an urban nuisance also.
The raccoon population in cities has exploded before a decade. Raccoons living in sewers have adapted to moving their properties from trees to learning to enter attics and chimneys. Removing a raccoon must only be attempted by way of a trained professional. It's dangerous setting a trap with a living raccoon in a attic. The raccoon may be nursing raccoon pups and be very protective of her young. Whether it's a situation that this homeowner will not know that the pups have become to full-sized and is attacked by 4 to 5 raccoons at once. As you can see, an attic is dangerous as it doesn't have flooring. If a trap is in the back of your attic with a mother raccoon, you have no flooring to leave quickly. Therefore people falling through the attic (the ceiling) may cause serious injury, plus mother raccoon following you down.
Squirrels chewing through siding to enter an attic or even in between floors has always been a typical nuisance for homeowners. Once in the attic squirrels can naw on wires creating a serious fire hazard and costly electrical contractor bills for your rewiring. The best way of the way to remove squirrels is an excellent method traps intent on the entry point on the structure. Using this method the squirrel leave on their own but cannot re-enter. If your squirrel is persistent, the subsequent choice is capture and take away the squirrel to some legal wildlife refuge.
