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.

How To Get A Squirrel Out Of Your House

Squirrels are generally quite shy animals that will not want to get too close to people, but in some situations they will find their way into the rooms of someone's house, and if left there for long they can often cause a lot of trouble. They are creatures with a lot of energy and will rush around the room trying to find a way out, and they will often be petrified of being trapped in the room. Most people who have to deal with squirrels in their homes will mean that they have made a nest in the roof space or in the chimney, because finding a squirrel in an open area within the home is really quite rare.

The First Steps You Should Take

Squirrels are animals that can carry a number of diseases, and because they are rodents they do have sharp teeth that can cause a nasty bite. For this reason it is best to take some precautions such as wearing thick gloves and clothing in case the squirrel will react to your assistance aggressively. If you have any pets with you in the home, it is best to keep them as far as possible

Once this has been done then the next thing to do is to have a look at the room in which the squirrel has been confined, and then to see what the quickest way out of the house for the animal is. If the squirrel is in the kitchen or another room that has a door opening directly to the outdoors, then opening this door will usually be the best choice for Winston Salem squirrel control. Alternatively, opening a large window can also work. The key to this working successfully is that the squirrel will need to feel the current of air, and will then follow this to the freedom of the outdoors.

In most situations, leaving the squirrel alone with access to freedom for a few hours will be more than enough to get the squirrel out of your house. If the squirrel remains after this period, then it may be injured or disorientated, and may need to be trapped and then removed by a Winston Salem squirrel removal professional.

Enticing A Squirrel Into A Trap

If the animal still hasn't left your house, and it is still confined in one room of your property, then it will need to be enticed into a trap or cage so that it can be taken to a veterinarian by Winston Salem squirrel removal. This can often prove to be quite difficult because squirrels are very shy animals and it will not necessarily want to be removed. It is best to use a simple cage trap that has been baited with oatmeal or even peanut better to actually catch the squirrel.

Depending on how the trap is structured, it can be a wise idea for Winston Salem squirrel control to cover the trap in a blanket before handling it as this can often help to reduce the stress on the animal. This can also make the trap much easier to handle because it reduces the exposure of your hands to bites and scratches from the trapped squirrel.

What To Do With The Trapped Squirrel

If you see that the squirrel is injured or diseased in any way, then it is best to take the animal to a vet as soon as possible so that any injuries can be treated.

Some states will also have rules about relocating a wild animal, but for a squirrel that has already been stressed from being caught in the confined space of your home then it can often be the kindest thing to release it quickly. Find a location where it can be released safely, preferably back into a natural habitat, and open the trap so that it can escape.
