Birds in the Chimney

Birds love to roost in high places, and your chimney can be a great place for them. Unfortunately, this can create issues for you in the future. While you are unlikely to use your chimney in the summer, you may have to clear out nests and debris when winter is on the horizon. Birds chirping in your chimney can become a nuisance, especially early in the morning Clearing out your bird problem in the summer can make your life easier down the road.
Nesting Birds and Chimneys
Birds can create nests inside or on top of the chimneys. Bird feces and debris from the nests can dirty up the chimney shoot. If nests are inside the chimney, it can damage or lock up the flue. Larger birds may even block the entire chimney, which can fill your house with smoke. Bird feces can also put you and your family in close proximity to diseases and bacteria they may be carrying.
Trapped Birds
Sometimes, a bird may become trapped within your chimney. Not all birds have the ability to move vertically up the chimney. When a bird is trapped, it should be removed quickly, and safely. You should call a licensed, humane, wildlife professional to take care of the bird.
Preventing Animals from Entering Your Chimney
Screens are key to excluding animal intruders from taking up residence in your chimney. Chimney screens can help prevent birds, raccoons, squirrels, rats, and more from entering your home.

Raccoons Under the Deck

When you have a raccoon, or a family of them, living under your deck, you may not want to make full use of your outdoor space. Raccoons can be a nuisance and can make entertaining outdoors problematic.

Removal of Problem Raccoons

Removing a raccoon living under your deck is important in ensuring the safety of your family. A raccoon living in close proximity to the home, such as under the deck, raises your family’s risk of injury. This is especially true for children and pets, which may go under the deck or provoke the raccoon. When cornered, raccoons may bite or scratch, and can carry rabies among other diseases. Professional, humane removal of these raccoons is the best way to take back your backyard.

AC damage from Wild Animals

It can be hard to deal with the summer heat without your AC. Unfortunately, AC ducts can be a good place for wild animals to hide out in. This article will explore the ways that wildlife can break into your ducts, and the type of damage they can cause. 

Dens in the Ducts

Rats, mice, raccoons, and more can find their way into your duct work, one way or the other. What’s worse, they may even set up camp. When an animal dens in your duct work, your AC can blow all sorts of smells and disease-ridden particles through your home. Scat, urine, fur, smells, and more can blow through your ducts and out into the rest of the home. Your air filters can only stop so much.
While nesting in your HVAC ducts can be a problem, a dead animal can be worse. It is not uncommon for animals to seek shelter in which to pass away. A dead animal in your ducts can create many of the above problems, while also bringing with it the stench of death and decay.

Chewing through Duct Work

Some animals, like mice and rats, can gnaw their way through ducts, or their sealants.This can create gaps for air to flow out. Ultimately, this will lead to drafts, inefficient air flow, and wasted energy.

Outdoor Units

Most central air systems have an outdoor unit on the ground or roof. Snakes, birds, and rodents can use this as a potential den. This can create issues such as damaged fan blades, debris in your unit, and more. Wild animals could damage evaporators or refrigerant systems within the unit, which could have severe consequences for the life of your central air system.
