There’s no doubt nuisance wildlife control operators have a tough job. They take big risks and enter scary situations day after day so residents can feel comfortable in their homes. However, there are a few tips and tricks of the trade used to make life much easier. Now you can discover these little-discussed tidbits on nuisance wildlife control:
1. Nuisance Wildlife Control Operators Are Softies at Heart
Did you know Georgia strictly regulates the methods approved for wildlife removal? One of the biggest benefits of hiring a professional is knowing your wildlife problem is being handled within the rules and regulations set forth by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
The wildlife exclusion experts at North Fulton Pest Solutions are licensed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources because they know the most effective ways to handle pests. This is definitely not the job for people who like hurting small animals. In fact, our technicians use more patience and care with nuisance wildlife than you’ll find anywhere. In many instances, we utilize specialty equipment like one way doors or excluder cages that prevent the trapping of animals altogether. If you care about animals but want them out of your attic, you can feel comfortable giving us a call.
2. Wildlife Prevention Takes Priority
We employ wildlife exclusion experts, meaning our staff is trained to get and keep critters out of your home. This starts by identifying potential entry points and blocking them off. Common problem areas include gaps where two or more types of building materials meet, gaps around rooflines (where rook decking does not meet the fascia board), open gable and crawl space vents, utility penetrations, or holes around your foundation. The area where your brick and siding come together, for instance, can provide enough space for squirrels, bats and other nuisances to get indoors.
Other common entries serve important purposes. Think of the vents on your roof or leading into your attic. You need these to remain open to get the most from your home, so sealing them to prevent wildlife entry must also allow for their continued intended use. Specialty hardware cloth, mesh screens, and other products are perfect for the job, and your North Fulton technician will install them securely.
3. Professional Traps are Used in New and Innovative Ways
The nuisance wildlife management industry has undergone a massive mental shift. At its inception, no one really cared how animals were treated. Today, North Fulton is deeply committed to making the best decisions for the people and the animals involved in every situation. There are times when entering an area and using baited traps is the best choice; however, through dedicated research it’s been discovered that relocating wildlife often causes a bigger problem than simply making a home hard to breech.
For that reason, exclusionary traps have gained popularity. Most of the animals who enter your home will periodically leave to food or water. These new traps fit over entry points and allow animals to get out. Once they’re out of your home, however, the trap locks and the squirrel or other target pest is unable to get back inside. Our technicians wait until it’s clear all animals have left your home, and then permanently seal the opening.
Through the use of prevention and the careful selection of humane trapping methods, North Fulton Pest Solutions has become your #1 source for effective nuisance wildlife control operators.
