When Pesky Critters Move In: Signs You May Need A Wildlife Removal Service

Do you suspect wildlife has taken up residence on your property or inside your home? At times you know you need a wildlife removal service because you see the pesky critter that is wreaking havoc up close, but other times it is not so obvious. Knowing some common signs to look for will help you know when it is time to contact a wildlife removal service to prevent damage to your home or property. 

You smell strange odors

When small critters access your attic or walls, they may die inside the structure of your home or outside buildings. Their droppings can also create a substantial odor. If you notice an offensive smell coming from your walls, it may be a sign of an infestation that needs to be addressed by a wildlife removal service.

You notice chewed surfaces

The large, sharp teeth of squirrels, raccoons, groundhogs, and porcupines are made to chew through nuts and seeds, which are a natural food source for these types of animals. However, these critters can begin chewing on the structures around your home and can cause substantial damage to wood surfaces. Finding wood chips and chewing on decks, porch railing, and around door and window frames is a sure sign you need a wildlife removal specialist.

You notice animal droppings

Every homeowner finds wildlife droppings on their property at times. However, if you are seeing excessive amounts of droppings showing up, it may mean a critter is attracted to your home and property. Contacting a wildlife removal service to inspect your property for damage is a good idea.

You hear strange noises

If you hear strange sounds in your walls or attic at night, you may fear your house is haunted, but it is most likely a critter who has taken up residence in your walls or attic. Once critters gain access to your inside structures, they may chew electrical wiring which can pose a danger or even lead to a fire. Any growling, chirping, scratching, and scurrying sounds coming from your walls or attic is a clear sign you need a wildlife removal service.

Wild animals are a natural part of life and can be amazing to observe, as long as they are not damaging your home or property. Nearly everyone has various kinds of wildlife near their home that never cause a problem. However, when wildlife becomes a problem, contacting a wildlife removal service as soon as possible is the best way to protect your property from damage.
