As cities continue to expand into rural areas, squirrels, raccoons, bats, skunks, and opossums must find new living quarters in urban areas. Urban wildlife will try to find entry into homes and properties looking for food and shelter, and unfortunately, they can be very destructive. Professional wildlife removal and complete wildlife control are imperative in keeping your home and family safe from these pests.
While not considered dangerous, wildlife can be vicious when cornered or feel threatened by humans or pets — especially when it comes to protecting their young. They are looking for a safe place to raise their offspring and are ingenious in finding openings or weak spots to gain access into your home or business.
Wildlife exclusion and wildlife control is not something the average person should undertake. There are many legal restrictions to the removal process that must be adhered to, and we recommend you contact a professional wildlife control expert to manage the humane removal of wildlife for your property.
How to Keep Wildlife Away from Your Home
The first important step is a full inspection of the property to assess vulnerable access points. With a strong understanding of wildlife behavior and habits, our experts know exactly where to look in identifying entry points and ideal living quarters.
Sanitation is also imperative in preventing wildlife from infesting your property. Just covering a garbage can with a lid will pose no challenge to any raccoon looking for food. Use only heavy plastic or metal garbage cans. These cans should have covers that fasten tightly and are secure from capsizing.
When it comes to the removal portion of our services, Abell only operates in complete accordance with local regulations, and always treats animals humanely. We operate with a strategic combination of humane relocation and exclusion to ensure the animals are not harmed nor stripped from their family, but also cannot re-enter our client’s property.
