We’re all familiar with the types of creepy-crawlies that can invade the home and stay hidden behind the scenes, but some may not think about wildlife when they think about pest control. Nuisance critters like raccoons, opossums, and more can infringe on your turf and create problems for you and your home or business. When you need a wildlife removal specialist, we can help. Our humane and effective techniques can help to make sure that your home or office is free from the mischief of wildlife.

Nuisance Wildlife

Home and building owners can be plagued by a number of nuisance critters. The types of wildlife issues that occur will often depend largely on the area where the home or building is located. For example, wildlife may be a bigger issue in areas that are more rural and densely vegetated. This may include areas on back roads or those situated near woods or forests.

Types of nuisance wildlife that may cause issues around homes and businesses may include:

  • Squirrels
  • Raccoons
  • Opossums
  • Moles
  • Bats
  • Skunks
  • Armadillos
  • Groundhogs
  • Foxes
  • Voles
  • Gophers
  • Muskrats
  • Porcupines
  • Rabbits
  • Deer

Wildlife Removal Professionals

Wildlife removal is a unique process that requires special considerations and exceptional skill and experience. This is why home and building owners should never attempt to remove wildlife on their own. Instead, call a professional like the team at Gato Guard Services. We have the experience needed to make sure that nuisance wildlife is effectively taken care of while ensuring the safety and well-being of both our team members and the residents of the affected homes and businesses.

Exclusion vs. Trapping

One of the most important considerations of wildlife removal is finding the best method for eliminating the issue. In many cases and contrary to popular belief, trapping is not always necessary. Methods like exclusion may help to keep wildlife out of your private property without the need to trap and physically remove them from the premises. When trapping is needed, we work to ensure techniques that are safe and humane for the animals involved.

Home and Yard Tips

There are tips that may be helpful for everyone – those who have a current nuisance wildlife issue and those who wish to prevent one. By following these simple tips, home and building owners can work to keep their property more sanitary and pest-free. It’s important to place all garbage in sealed and secure receptacles so that wildlife does not have access to it, as this is one of the number one causes of issues.

Other tips for avoiding nuisance wildlife include:

  • Keeping yards and lawns well-maintained and free of trash or debris
  • Pick up any fruit that has fallen from trees in the yard
  • Trim trees and plants away from building walls and roofs
  • Clean below bird feeders to avoid scavengers
