What You Need To Know About Hiring Wildlife Removal Experts
Category: Wildlife Removal
It is bound to happen at some point, your home gets infiltrated with critters and you have to get them out. What surprises many people is that even living in the heart of downtown Atlanta does not make you immune to possible wildlife intrusion. What happens next is that you have to find the right wildlife removal experts to work with, in order to address your problem.
Since this is not the type of task that has probably ever been on your to-do list before, you may feel overwhelmed about trying to make the decision. The main goal is to locate an expert that utilizes effective but humane practices. Solving your critter problems doesn’t have to result in anything less than ethical business and animal handling practices.
Addressing the Need for Extraction
In some cases, you may know what type of problem you have. You may have seen a possum or heard a bat, and can easily identify the type of wildlife. On the other hand, you may have just heard “something” and will need an industry expert to also take care of the need for identifying the problem. Either way, some tips to keep in mind are:
As with any type of professional service, make it a point to only partner with companies that are licensed and insured. You have the right to ask to see proof of current licensing and insurance. This protects you, your home and the industry contractor in the event of damage or personal injury.
Find out how the companies you are considering will be handling the animals. Obviously, the ultimate goal is that the pest be relocated in a safe and humane manner. Plus, any offspring should be allowed to remain with the mother. Unless there is a threat of disease, there should be no reason for the removal to result in death.
Get an inspection and a written estimate. This is a good time for the professional to locate the problem and identify or confirm the type of wildlife. At this point they should be able to locate any existing access points, in order to deal with that as well. From there, they will then provide you with a written estimate to handle the job for you. Any verbal alterations to the agreement should be written in and initialed by both parties.
Ensure that the tactics being used will be humane, yet effective. There is no reason to work with anyone unwilling to employ only the most ethical treatment of these creatures. In many cases, they may work with a secondary party for safe release. If this is the case, make it a point to contact the organization to confirm firsthand that this is the plan of action and usual practice. You should be working with a removal team, not an extermination team.
Make yourself aware of legalities. For instance, bats are a protected species under both state and federal laws. So there are guidelines to what can be done and how they must be handled. Familiarize yourself with industry and government regulations for your particular wildlife, when possible, and if any exists.
Of course, make it a point to also get help preventing the issue from happening again. Once the removal and relocation has been carried out, it is time for cleanup and sealing up access points. These areas should be disinfected and sealed off to prevent the return of this type, or any kind, of wildlife intrusion.
