Protecting Your Home Against Wildlife in the Spring

As Spring draws ever closer, it is important to consider how to prepare your home against wild animal invaders. As many mammals come out of hibernation, and birds return from their migration, animal-proofing your home can save you a lot of trouble down the road.

Inspect for Exterior Damage

Many animals breach the home via small cracks or holes in the house. These are most often found on the roof, along the eaves, or down near the foundation. If there is any exterior damage to your house, you may have more problems than just an animal invasion. Unchecked, exterior damage can cause drafts, leaks, and more. Identifying and repairing any exterior damage can help reduce the risk of further issues down the line.

Declutter the Attic and Basement

Pest animals love to hide out in attics or basements. This is especially true for cluttered and messy areas. Clutter provides plenty of hiding places, as well as materials for nesting. Clean up and declutter these areas to reduce the risk of a pest infestation.

Clean up the Backyard

Clear out debris and overgrown plants early, to help reduce overgrowth and clutter. Animals can make use of yard debris and overgrown plants to make shelters. Cleaning out the backyard early helps prevent animals from moving in, come Springtime.

Invest in Your Trash Cans

It may seem odd, but you should invest in stronger, sturdier, and locking trash cans. Strong trash cans can prevent pest animals like raccoons and skunks from using your garbage cans as a food source. This can help prevent them from coming to your property for a meal. Furthermore, it will reduce the amount of post-feeding cleanup you will have to do. Animals like to live close to food sources and may seek out shelter nearby. By investing in stronger garbage cans, you can prevent damage costs in the future.

We specialize in the humane removal of raccoons, opossums, and other pests in the New York/New Jersey area. For a complete inspection and evaluation please contact us or call us at 718-962-0376 and we will be happy to make an appointment at your convenience.

Do I Need to Repair My Attic After an Animal Infestation?

After a wild animal is removed by a wildlife removal specialist, homeowners may wonder if repairs should be made. After all, how much damage could one critter do? Unfortunately, Animals can cause major damage to your home, including the insulation, electrical systems, and more. Additionally, repairs can prevent further infestations down the road. This article will explore key points of repair and restoration, and why they are essential.

Entry Holes

Animals can find small cracks or holes in your home and use them to gain entry. Often, they will work to make these holes bigger. Firstly, these holes can be used by other critters in the future to gain access to your attic once again. Next, these holes can be a source of a draft, which can mean that you spend more money on heating and air conditioning.

Grease Marks

Most mammals have natural oils that cover their fur. These oils can stain parts of your home as they rub against surfaces. The grease stains caused by these animals contain chemicals that may attract other critters, as they might smell the animal’s presence.

Chewing & Gnawing

Animals, and especially rodents, may chew and bite through walls, floors, insulation, wires, and more. This damage can affect the structural integrity of your house, create drafts, or even create fire hazards. It is important to repair any damage caused by animals as they munched their way across your attic.

Waste Removal

Animals living in your home will leave waste behind. Often, this waste can seep throughout the home. This can cause severe health issues for you and your loved ones. Propper clean-up of waste materials is essential to restoring your home and keeping your family healthy. This is why hiring a company that specializes in wildlife removal and repair is vital. Most carpenters are not trained to properly sanitize an area in a way that removes diseases and parasites left behind by unwanted critters.

Common Mistakes When Hiring a Wildlife Removal Company

When you have an animal living in your home, it is important to get it evicted. Unfortunately, not all wildlife removal companies are the same. You need to make sure that the company you hire to deal with your pest problem can get the job done right, and without issue. Below, this article will discuss the common mistakes in hiring a removal service, and how New York/New Jersey Wildlife Removal Inc. does it right.

Not Getting an Inspection First

When choosing a wildlife removal service, it is important that a specialist inspects your property for signs of animal invasion and damage. This is vital to ensuring that the animals are excluded properly and that any potential damage is noted. NY/NJ inspects your property to ensure that our team of professional removal specialists knows exactly how to get the job done right, the first time.

Hiring an Inhumane Removal Company

Inhumane removal companies kill or improperly dispose of trapped animals. Alternatively, they may use harmful traps or poisons to kill the animals before removal. This is heavily problematic. Not only is it inhumane, but it often does not solve your pest problem. Pest animals may survive poisons or traps, only to die within your walls. This can cause them to be missed by the trappers. Rather than dealing with inhumane trappers or rotting animals in your walls, it is best to hire a humane company from the start. NY/NJ Wildlife Removal Inc understands the environmental and moral importance of humane trapping and exclusion of pest animals. We work to ensure that all of the animals are properly removed from your home, and released into the wild where they belong.

Hiring a Company That Doesn’t Provide Cleanup/Repair Services

Animals can wreak havoc on your home and endanger the health and safety of your family. Pest animals and their waste can spread diseases to your family. Structural damage and fire hazards can occur when pests take up residence in your home. Furthermore, animals burrowing through your insulation can create drafts that can raise your energy costs significantly. It is vital that the removal specialists that you hire offer extensive repair and cleanup services. These services are essential to restoring your home and protecting the health of your loved ones. NY/NJ Wildlife Removal Inc offers our clients extensive cleaning and repair services.
