Our Wildlife Control services consist on trapping and relocation of the animal. We clean and sanitize an area that presents affection, lastly sealing and proofing all potential access points. Here are some facts of the most common:
Raccoons: are very smart creatures normally active at night, they can also be a nuisance to any homeowner. They can destroy gardens, due to their great climbing ability causing structural damage to any property in the search of food and shelter. They can carry several bacterial diseases and parasites including rabies, that can be transmitted to humans and pets. Raccoons possess an amazing dexterity that gives them the ability to open doors latches and bottles.
Skunks: are nocturnal and sensitive to light and sound, they have a bad reputation because of the corrosive substance with a persistent unpleasant odor, secreted by the anal glands. They are omnivores which means they eat meat and vegetation.
These animals can carry contagious diseases, viruses and parasites harmful for humans or pets through bite. Some of the most serious illnesses include leptospirosis, canine distemper, canine hepatitis, intestinal roundworm, rabies.
Opossum: are the only marsupial in North America. They are mostly solitary, avoiding one another except during the breeding season in late winter. Generally nocturnal will spend the day in hollow tree trunks, rock crevices, underbrush piles or in burrows, they are excellent climbers and good swimmers. Although non-aggressive, opossums have 50 teeth and tend to drool and hiss, leaving the wrong impression to humans.
This animal is less likely to carry rabies, but like most wild animals is a big carrier of fleas. When facing danger, they “play possum”, entering a state like fainting that can last from less than a minute to six hours. Contact us for Wildlife Control and removal services.
