What problems do wildlife cause?

Most of the calls we get are because homeowners hear animals scurrying around inside the attic or walls. Most of the damage inside a houes or attic is unseen. Rodents like squirrels, mice, and rats often chew on electrical wires. Wildlife such as raccoons, bats, birds, opossums, and rats spread several diseases that humans can and do catch, such as Histoplasmosis, Salmonella, Leptospirosis and more. Many critters leave droppings and urine in an attic or cause mold or odor problems. We also handle animals outside the house. It could be a critter that has dug a large hole next to your house, or a raccoon in your garbage cans, an opossum that is stealing pet food, or a skunk living under your deck, causing an odor problem. Some animals destroy your garden or landscaping. Or perhaps you are simply scared of snakes. Whatever the problem is, our wildlife experts can remove the source of the problem, and prevent it from happening again. We are not a Salt Lake City extermination company, nor pest control.

How to Get Rid of Opossums

We think of them as Salt Lake City raccoon removal animals who hang of tree branches by their tales. If we scare them, they ''play opossum''. They play dead, simulating a state of decomposing to disturbing details. If you don't know them very well, you might think that opossums are harder to handle than they actually are. The truth is, a little possum is not aggressive to humans. There are also slim chances it will carry any infectious disease. But, more important, if one of them finds its way into your home, it is most likely a mom with babies, looking for a safe shelter. There si no reason to panic or stress about handling opossums in your Salt Lake City raccoon removal home. With some tact, planning and skill, you will be able to trap and relocate this animal in a safe and humane way.

But, how to avoid getting there in the first place? Prevention is the key.
Maintaining your home on a regular basis will prevent Salt Lake City snake removal opossums from invading your home. What does this mean? Making your home critter-proof means securing your fences, yards, roofs and basements. Your fences should be, for starters, at least 4 feet high. If it's legal in your country/state, it is recommended to install an electric fence with lower voltage. It will drive a pesky critter away, without harming it. Make sure there are no cracks or loose Salt Lake City snake removal screws that a possum might use as an entry. Also, make sure to fix your rooftops, leaving no gaps.

Well, lit corners in your household should prevent a possum from finding a safe shelter in your home. Also, make sure that there is no food or trash left to attract small Salt Lake City rat control critters. However, in case you still ''catch'' a possum, your will need to handle it with patience. If you have a service available, your best decision would be to call an expert to handle the situation. If there is an animal control unit available in your area of living, call them up. They should be able to safely trap, examine and relocate (or euthanize) the animal. Also, there are many expert Salt Lake City bat removal companies out there who handle Salt Lake City rat control removing pests from household. If you can afford it, hire them to handle this situation for you. If there is no way for you to have an expert relocate an opossum from your house, there is an option of doing it by yourself. But, trapping an opossum is a lot different than trapping other critters. In fact, if you are trapping an opossum in your house, chances are you are trapping an Salt Lake City bat removal opossum mom with her babies.

A most recommended Salt Lake City rodent extermination trap for catching an opossum is a large cage trap for an adult opossum and several small traps for baby opossums. Best baits to lure opossums, without luring other animal species, like squirrels or neighbor’s cat, is to use baits such as bread, marshmallows or cinnamon. Well, placed opossum traps should be arranged in shaded areas, to avoid exposing an animal to extreme temperature conditions. When you're trapping an opossum, take your time, and be patient. There are strong chances you are catching more than one. When you're sure you've caught all the baby Salt Lake City rodent extermination opossums in your house, you can move on to remove them by relocating or putting them down. Sadly, by some legal requirements, for example in New Zealand, caught opossums need to be euthanitsed because they are causing major damage to the ecosystem.

Out of all available options, having an expert trap and remove a possum from your home is the most recommended one. However, animal control is not available everywhere, and hiring expert services can be costly. If you know you will be the one stuck with handling a critter, try critter-proofing your home first. Using repellents, even though popular, and for some people effective, failed to serve its purpose in a large Salt Lake City bird control percentage. Whether you use a chemical or a mechanical repellent, an animal growing accustomed and ignoring it is almost available. Because of that, investing your money in repellents will most likely be a waste of money. Killing opossums, unless required by law (even then, its best to leave it up to the expert to euthanize it), should not be an option to go with. Opossums are not aggressive, and very unlikely contagious. There is no reason for killing them. Consider investing some patience into catching and removing an opossum out of your home in a Salt Lake City bird control humane way, instead.
