All folks encounter wildlife daily.
A few issues which may arise include:
Damage to property
Spread of disease
The death of a beloved pet
Injury to both children and adults
Loss of livelihood for farmers or ranchers
Elevated levels of anxiety for the homeowner
Disruption of daily routines
Inability to safely utilize parts of your home or property
While most issues have both pros and cons associated, there’s not a single benefit to getting a wildlife infestation. The key is knowing when to call an expert wildlife removal company, so the problem doesn’t get out of hand. To do so, homeowners need to know the warning signs of wildlife infiltration.
Indications of Unwanted Wildlife in the Home
The most obvious indication of unwanted wildlife is visual confirmation. But by the time you’ve had visual confirmation, the problem has already started to get out of hand.
If you pay attention there are subtle clues which say you might have a problem. A few of the most common indications Outside visual confirmation include:
Large holes dug under your fence, barn, chick coop, or home’s foundation
Strange noises can be heard which cannot be allocated to some other source
The shingles on your roof may show signs of damage
Footprints are found on roof or lawn
A strange (possibly pungent) odor persists without a findable cause
Holes called “burrows” appear around your yard
If you keep any livestock, a certain sign of coyotes is locating blood or skeletal remains
One last sign lots of men and women fail to recognize is that their household pets – dogs and cats primarily – start to act strangely. These creatures have an exaggerated sense of smell that allows them to capture the scent of infesting wildlife. Dogs may bark in what seems to be nothing, or scratch at walls. Cats may hiss, show signs of anxiety, and start “peeing” around the home.
What to Do if You Think You Have a Problem
If you have noticed any of the above signs that wildlife could be an issue in your home, you should call a certified wildlife removal company – rather one which practices exclusion as their principal method of solving the problem. It’s important you act quickly as a result of many issues unwanted wildlife could pose to your family, pets, house, and even potentially your livelihood.
