We DO NOT provide services for cats, dogs, injured or orphaned animals, or waterfowl. Waterfowl includes ducks, geese, swans, herons, and similar water-bound birds.
Do You Use Poisons Or Chemicals?
Our certified professionals adhere to all industry-accepted standards and best practices, as well as, operate within all local, state, and federal laws that govern wildlife. As a non-lethal company, we use a careful and concentrated approach to accurately identify, locate, extract, and exclude any species of nuisance wildlife using a variety of non-lethal methods,including live traps, artificial hormones, state of the art luminosities, and automated static noise devices. We always make sure to avoid non-target animals, and we never use poisons, repellents, fatal devices, nor environmentally-damaging or toxic products.
What Do You Do With The Animals You Trap And Remove?
After animals are extracted from a property, those that are suspected of illness are sent to a lab to be tested for Rabies. Following testing, healthy animals are released back into nature in a faraway habitat (at least 10 miles) where they can live out the remainder of their lives in peace and harmony. However, in most cases, our DNR licensed and insured wildlife abatement specialists are required to follow the local animal removal ordinances.
Will a Bat in the House Attack Us?
Bats are timid and cautious mammals. They prefer to keep to themselves, and are more afraid of you than you are of them. They will usually steer clear of humans and other animals, but there are exceptions. If you provoke or scare a bat, they could attack in self-defense. Also, if a mother bat is protecting her young, she could retaliate against any suspected threats.And last, if a bat is sick or infected, they could demonstrate erratic and aggressive behaviors. These are just more reasons why you should NEVER attempt to remove a wild animal on your own.
Do Wild Animals Have Diseases?
All mammals are capable of being carriers or transmitters of infectious or contagious diseases. Animals like bats and raccoons are known carriers of the Rabies virus and other common transmissible illnesses. Aside from disease, wildlife infestations in the home can lead to various health implications for both humans and pets. Furthermore, they can bring pests into the home, like lice, mites, and gnats. And when they are infesting an inner area of your home, you can expect it to be a highly unhygienic environment.
