Why Choosing Humane Wildlife Removal Matters

When you have wild animals living in your backyard, or even your home, you should think carefully about the wildlife removal service you call to get rid of them. Homeowners should consider using an ethical, humane wildlife removal service to deal with their pest problems; and here’s why.

Extermination Isn’t a Long-Term Solution

Most extermination companies do only that. They deal with the problem, clear out the bodies, and leave. While some may offer services beyond that; most only address the issue of the current invading animal. Humane removal focuses on exclusion, and repairing the home, so that other pests can’t gain access later. When you use an extermination company, you may have to find a third party to deal with the repairs. That third party may not be well-versed in sealing up damage caused by animals, or cleaning out hard to reach places where fecal matter and waste may be permeating.

Inhumane Methods Aren’t Always Legal

Pest control and wildlife removal can be very different services. A pest control company way use poisons or other similar methods to clear out wildlife, just as they would do for bugs. In addition to suffering painful deaths, using poison to remove a pest animal may be illegal. Many bats species, snakes, and more can be endangered. You and the company involved can be fined or even imprisoned for killing a member of an endangered species.

Not all Poison Methods are Effective

There is no guarantee that an animal will eat poisons placed out for them. Poisons also don’t always kill instantly. There is a strong chance that an animal may suffer before they die. Some animals may just get sick and survive. Others still may crawl to a hard to reach, tight place and die. It can be almost impossible to confirm that a whole rat or mouse colony is successfully killed,and that all of the bodies are cleared out. Humane traps and exclusion methods help ensure that all animals are removed and kept out of the home.

Animals Have the Right to Live

Animals that try to live in your home may be an annoyance, but they still deserve to live. They enter your home for base needs rooted in survival instincts; food, shelter, warmth. By opting to use a humane removal service, you are helping preserve wildlife and the environment. Killing should never be the first option. You can breathe easy knowing that you did the right thing by choosing to humanely deal with your wild animal problem.

Signs that Animals May be Living in Your Walls

Animals like to break into homes for shelter, but they rarely stay in one place. A variety of pest animals will use the walls of your home to access other areas of the home, or to get outside. Mice, rats, snakes, squirrels, and more can be crawling inside your walls. What are some common signs that your walls are occupied by critters?
The most common way a homeowner finds out about a pest in the walls is the noise. You may hear them calling out or moving around in the walls. Squeaks from rodents, scratching in the walls or chittering of raccoons can be heard.
The smell of urine and waste from the animals can permeate through the walls and throughout your home. If left alone, these smells can linger for months after the pests leave. If not properly taken care of, waste from animals can lead to a variety of health risks and diseases that can be harmful to you and your family.
Signs of chewed drywall, insulation, or wood can be a huge indicator of a pest problem. On the outside of the house, you can see similar damage to siding, panels, bricks, roofing, etc. With pest animals like rats, mice, and squirrels, gnawing at openings is fairly commonplace behaviour. Rodents can squeeze through incredibly small openings, but generally prefer to make them wider when possible. When animals move through insulation, they move it out of the way, which can create drafts in the home. Some pests will also chew through wires, which can lead to fires.
If you suspect that there are wild animals are living within your walls, contact us for a consultation for our exclusion and clean up services.

Gentrification is Causing More Rat Sightings in NYC

Gentrification has been on the rise in New York City, and so has rat sightings. Scientists and pest control experts alike are in agreement that revitalization projects in neighborhoods across the city are driving rats and mice out into the open. What does this mean for you and your home?
With more rodents out in the open, it is likely that they will try to move to other apartment complexes or buildings. It is already a pretty common occurrence to see rats in the subway system, or even on the streets, but these sightings are increasing in regularity. New YOrk City is home to an estimated 33.6 million rats, or about 5 rats per person. The rat population also estimated to be on the rise.
What does an increase of rats on the street mean for the NYC residents? An increase of rodent sightings usually comes with an increase of rodent related diseases. Bacterial infections spread by rat urine, blood, or waste can become more and more commonplace. In 2017, a Bronx resident died of leptospirosis, a bacterium found in rat urine. Increased rat sightings also come as a risk to businesses that can be shut down for rodent issues.
