While some of the creatures that end up in your attic or chimney may seem rather harmless, any creature that is living in your home poses a threat to your house, your family or both. Bat urine and guano can be toxic, for example, and nearly every wild animal can potentially spread harmful diseases to humans. Rats are likely to chew through wiring, and infestations of any animals can easily clog a vent or a chimney. These unwanted and unwelcome creatures are more than a nuisance; they are likely to leave destruction of some sort behind even after you have gotten rid of them.
The first step in getting rid of any unwanted animals from your home is to assess where they are living and how they got there. Sometimes there is an obvious answer, but often it takes an expert to examine the gutters, eaves, attics and various nooks and crannies of your house. The primary source of entry for most critters is a rotten spot which is hidden from view until someone with experience in animal removal knows where to look. Other typical spots through which creatures can gain admittance into a house include roof vents, chimneys or louvered vents. We know the right places to look, and we will find them for you.
Removing live animals from a house is generally done one of two ways. One way is to trap the animals and the other is to make them leave the house on their own. Trapping alone is not always the most effective way. This method is also relatively ineffective at removing all of the creatures, including mates and babies, at the same time. The more effective method is that which is practiced by the experienced animal removal professionals at Critter Ridder. Instead of using poisons or traps, we use humane methods such as hormones, static noise and lights to attract the creatures outside of the house where they can be trapped and taken to safe living environments away from humans. These methods lure animals along with their mates and babies out of the house, and have been shown high success rates in eliminating the animals from inside your home or attic.
If you suspect you have a dead animal somewhere in your home or on your property, Critter Ridder’s professionals know the most likely places to look for them, which are generally tight spaces, small cracks or other out-of-the way spots in your home. Wherever the carcasses are, the Critter Ridder professionals will find them.
