Homeowners tend to underestimate how devastating wildlife removal mistakes can be. Some species, like squirrels and raccoons, are more clever than you think. There are few things more humbling than being thwarted by a rodent.
Many of the pest control products available at hardware stores are ineffective, and it’s easy to use them incorrectly. These failed attempts can make it more difficult for a professional pest control company to handle the problem later.
Here are three common wildlife removal mistakes, and how you can avoid them.
Don’t Rush to Seal a Hole
Many homeowners tend to wait until they see an animal leave the house, and then they seal off the entry point. This can be a huge mistake because there could be baby raccoons, or an entire colony of bats still hiding inside, and now they can’t get out. A nest full of dead baby raccoons creates a bigger, smellier problem for you. Live animals are always much easier to remove than dead ones, so don’t rush to seal a hole until you know that all of the critters are out.
Be Cautious of DIY Solutions
Many DIY pest control products just don’t work. Rat and mouse poisons reduce rodent populations. But, many DIY solutions do not eradicate all of the pests in your home and glue traps are often ineffective. Professional companies have access to much better products and methods of pest control and wildlife removal.
Cleanup Work Will Most Likely be Required
Homeowners often remove and exclude wildlife from their home, seal the entry point, and call the job done. Wrong! If animals have been nesting inside your house, there will be cleanup work required. Animal urine and feces can cause foul odors and contain disease-causing microbes.
Those animals could have chewed up unseen materials to build nests – think insulation, wallpaper, wood, wiring, and more. They may have found a way inside your air ducts and left droppings there as well. Indeed, wildlife removal is just the beginning of the work necessary to keep your home clean and safe.
