Our procedure “Rodent Proofing” is often misinterpreted by homeowners whose attics are infested with rodents. Pest control companies and specialty animal removal companies remove rodents from the attic. While it is rare for pest control companies to include the service of sealing the roof openings, it is more common for specialty companies to do so. To effectively eliminate rodent entry, roofing shingles, tile and/or metal roof covering must be removed.
Live Trapping Raccoons
Bats in your attic can be a health hazard to you and your family. Bats must be removed by a qualified professional that has the necessary training and equipment to remove the bats and the guano they leave behind.
Bats often get inside a home when they are infesting an attic. If a bat were to enter a home, the occupants could be bitten and rabies transmitted through a bite. Rabies shots are not something you want to experience!
So what do you do when bats are in your home?
A bat control expert will have the proper tools and training to fully resolve your bat problem and provide answers to all of your questions.
If you suspect your home has been invaded by unwanted guests, have a Wildlife Professional inspect it as soon as possible.

"The Lake County, Florida squirrel management plan was developed with public input to improve the health of the state's squirrel group of squirrels, to encourage healthy habitat, which squirrel and all other wildlife depend on, and to reduce squirrel-human conflicts," the animal control official announced. "We believe this squirrel management program will improve the health of our squirrel group of squirrels and the habitat that supports it and other wildlife. "Yes, wildlife trapping has become more challenging in many areas. However, the benefits from our program changes are unmistakable, as pest control companies have reported seeing and harvesting larger squirrel; land managers and foresters are seeing some regeneration recovery in our forests; and farmers are telling us that they have seen less damage to their crops," the animal control official announced.

Raccoons are nocturnal animals. They are usually black in color, and have a black tail with rings. They weigh around 10 to 20 pounds. They usually reside in forests, in barns, chimneys or even your attic. If you live near a forest, it is likely that a raccoon will one day knock over your trashcan looking a food source. They are opportunistic feeders, and so can be a real nuisance. Raccoons are omnivorous, so they feed on vegetables and poultry. There are various methods that will help you get rid of raccoons:
Fencing will help exclude the raccoons from your property to do this, set up a two-wire electric fence that is connected to a DC battery. Also make sure that you install a temporary chimney cap. Since raccoons are nocturnal, they will not be able to gain access to your chimney when you are asleep. Make sure that you use a trashcan with a tight lid. Raccoons are usually attracted by the smell of your trash. Purchase a metal or plastic trashcans, which is difficult to open. You can also put a rock on top of the trashcan to make sure that the raccoon does not knock it over. Alternatively, you could put the garbage in containers sealed with bungee cords. Make sure you double bag foods that have intense smell such as meat, fish, etc. Most pests have an acute sense of smell, and they will be attracted to your trash. You can also spray the garbage with a repellent to disguise the smell of meat.
This is the least preferred method. The most common is attracting the raccoon with food and trapping it in a cage or a box. However, some provinces have very strong regulations on trapping. If the province does not allow this, you could be prosecuted for violating animal rights!
It is also very dangerous to deal with raccoons face to face. They could be carrying germs, roundworms or rabies. You can even get leptospirosis from the raccoon feces. Another problem with this is that they are wild animals. A raccoon could decide to be defensive and hurt you.
This is the safest method. The Pest Control staff will deal with the vermin more effectively and without legal repercussion.
