When you have a wild animal problem on your property, it is always smart to call for a professional to handle the situation. Generally, there are two types of wildlife removal services available. There are humane wildlife removal companies and extermination companies. This article will discuss the difference in service you will likely receive from each.

Initial Consultations

Often, the initial consultation for each service type will start off the same. A service person will inspect the property for signs of animals. This may include finding the animal themselves. A plan will be created to remove the animal(s). While the removal specialist may also look to identify points of entry to the home, not every extermination company will take this step.

Animal Removal or Extermination Practices

Wildlife removal specialists use humane traps to exclude wild animals from your property. This may also include one-way doors placed at the breach points the animals use. This helps remove the animals without letting them come back in. On the other hand, exterminators will generally use poison or tainted baits to kill the animals. Unfortunately, this is not always effective. It is not uncommon for animals to get sick from these treatments and not die. Or, they might hole up in your walls and die within the walls. This can make it harder to remove the bodies without serious renovation. Which many extermination companies do not deal with.

Clean Up and Repair

As stated above, most extermination companies do not handle repair services after the animals have been dealt with. They may, however, provide cleaning services. These services also should include removing the animals, as well as leftover poison or bait. Otherwise, your children or pets could be at risk of being exposed to the poisons used.

Humane removal companies clean up contaminated areas thoroughly, to help remove any leftover waste material or parasites. After properly disinfecting the area, professional repair services are provided. This includes restoring damages to the home that could provide breach points for animals in the future. These repairs help to prevent future animal intrusions.
