Professional wildlife removal doesn’t have a slow season. Even while some animals hibernate for the cold months, pests will always try to find a way to shelter in a home. Houses and commercial businesses offer protection from the harsh elements many animals seek. If possible, they will take advantage of an attic or crawl space. Below, we will discuss important aspects of winter wildlife removal.

Snow and Trapping Animals in the Winter

Wildlife professionals are adept at finding potential entry points in the snow. Animals may leave tracks or burrow through the snow. However, snow can obscure breaches in your home made by hibernating critters. Depending on the pest animal, snow can be helpful or complicate the job.

Home Damage Caused by Winter Wildlife Encounters

Breach points in your home can create more problems than the pest itself can cause. Holes in your roof can let snow and snow melt in, creating water damage. The water can leave lasting damage that can seep into other areas of your house. Mold and mildew can grow in the warm climate of a home, even during the colder months. Breaches in the home can lead to energy waste and heat loss. Animals moving through the walls of your home can create gaps in insulation. Critters that enter ventilation systems can reduce air quality and the strength of your central air unit.

They Won’t Leave on Their Own

Some homeowners may think a pest animal will leave when the weather warms up in the Spring. But most wild animals will continue to live in an area that is warm, dry, and safe. Even worse, they may be in your home during the mating season. Once they give birth to a litter, it will be less likely that they want to leave.
