You can hear it at night. The scratching, chattering and scurrying at night. Then you have that nightmare they are running across your face at night. Enough is enough, Treasure Island.
For a wildlife home invasion, Treasure Island, Florida residents rely on the experts at World Class Wildlife Removal.
So, what exactly is making those sounds at night?
It is quite unnerving to have some animal sneaking around in your attic, basement, garage, or walls. Hopefully, it is just a squirrel. If not, it may be bats, mice, rats, raccoons, or opossums. They are harder to get rid of and potentially more dangerous.
Identifying the critter invading your space, the experts at World Class Wildlife Removal will check the perimeter of your home and yard, check the roof for entry points, and then check the attic, basement, and garage for signs of occupation.
Unfortunately, these pesky critters leave behind urine and droppings to let you know what kind of animals they are. Of course, if you have a bat infestation, that will be immediately obvious since bats will sleep all day in their chosen areas of the attic.
To remove the animals safely and humanely, the wildlife removal company in Treasure Island will trace the animals’ paths first. Once they locate the entry point, they will seal it off, only allowing the critter to escape and not return. Then a trap can be set to catch the animals.
Trapping the Treasure Island Critters
Trapping most of these pests can be accomplished in a relatively straight forward trap. Some critters can’t resist the scent of their favorite foods in a trap. They go right in and get stuck. Others are more easily caught with glue traps, box, and snap traps. There is a unique trap for every type of animal.
Bats are a whole different story. They are on the endangered list and cannot be killed. And, they don’t find themselves caught in traps, so that won’t work. The only way to eradicate a bat infestation is to catch them in a net or allow them to fly out. Once they are out for the night to scavenge, you can seal off the entry point, or a device can be put over the entry to let the bats out, but not back in.
Cleaning Up After the Animal Removal
This is a job, not for the faint of heart or sense of smell. Animals will always gravitate toward the pheromones found in urine and droppings. The scent allows them to relocate the area each time they go out and lets other critters know this is the right spot.
When the exert technicians serving Treasure Island complete the critter removal, you will need a thorough clean up where the animals have been nesting, urinating, and defecating.
The soiling of insulation and drywall can cause significant damage to your home. They need removal, replacement, disinfecting and deodorizing as soon as possible. The longer you wait to remove the pests, the worse the damage becomes, and the more difficult it is to clean up the problem.
Other Means of Prevention
There are means of prevention you, the homeowner, can take to keep these animals from entering your home. Look around the outside of your home for any points a tiny animal could take advantage of to get in. Trim trees close to the roofline, decrease yard debris and overgrown areas, too.
The easiest way to be sure you never have critters invading your home-sweet-home is to call a wildlife removal company like World Class to examine the home.
