Wildlife removal woodstock has become a growing industry. Knowing how to get rid of raccoons from attics, how to get rid of squirrels nesting and from chewing on your residence, or how to eliminate an armadillo from digging up your lawn has become more challenging for homeowners and property managers to manage.
The issue has become to large for towns to handle so a new industry was born, Nuisance Wildlife Removal. The most common nuisance wildlife is raccoons, squirrels, rats, bats, opossums, skunks, snakes, and armadillos. Wild hogs have recently become a common nuisance. Hogs mostly have effected the plantation business and ranching, but has become an urban nuisance as well.
The raccoon population in urban regions has exploded in the past ten decades. Raccoons living in sewers have accommodated to moving their homes from trees to learning how to enter attics and chimneys. Eliminating a raccoon must only be tried by a trained professional. It is dangerous setting a snare with a living raccoon in an attic. The raccoon may be nursing raccoon pups and be very protective of her young. It could be a scenario that the homeowner does not know that the pups have grown to full size and could be attacked by five or four raccoons at one time. As you can see, an attic is harmful since it has no flooring. When a trap is at the rear of an attic with a mother raccoon, you don’t have any flooring to escape quickly. Hence people falling through the loft (the ceiling) can cause serious injury, and of course that mother raccoon following you down.
Squirrels chewing through siding to enter an attic or in between floors has always been a common annoyance for homeowners. Once in the attic squirrels can naw on wires creating a significant fire hazard and expensive electrical contractor bills for the rewiring. The best way of ways to eliminate squirrels is one way traps set on the entrance point to the structure. This way the squirrel leave on their own but cannot re-enter. If the squirrel is persistent, another alternative would be to trap and remove the squirrel into a lawful wildlife refuge.
Armadillos, skunks, and opossums commonly occupy urban residence. Cities will merely come and pick them up if you already have them trapped. Rats and bats should immediately be removed from structures before they over populate the property.
