Nuisance animals cause odor problems in a variety of ways. Their excrement is a primary source of odor problems, and often quite noticeable if an animal has taken up residence somewhere in your home. Animal carcasses are another source of odor. Skunks present a whole other dimension in odor problems. I can identify the source of animal odors, and eliminate both the current source of the odor (for example, excrement removal) and the underlying cause (the animal's entry into your home). This work may be covered by homeowners insurance.
There are many sicknesses that humans can contract from nuisance wildlife droppings. If there has been a prolonged infestation of raccoons, bats, birds, mice, or any other wildlife, it is a good chance your attic needs to be restored. After the fecal matter of these nuisance animals sits in your attic over an extended period of time, it can start to develop spores of bacteria. Wildlife scent left in the attic will also attract more nuisance animals in the future. Usually 1-3 weeks of infestation can require the attic to be restored due to damages and wildlife scent. The offending nuisance wildlife animals should be trapped or excluded before attic clean up takes place. If you ever decide to inspect your own attic for wildlife droppings, make sure to get a quality respirator to avoid berating in any harmful material.

Attic Deodorization and Insulation Restoration
Have you been hearing strange noises in your house at night? Are you concerned that something is living inside your attic? This can be a scary and concerning experience for homeowners, especially when you don't know what the noise is or where it's coming from. If you have been hearing strange noises, especially at night, these are signs of a wildlife or rodent infestation.
Wild animals such a squirrels, raccoons, possums, rodents and even bats can move into your home's attic or crawl space. While you are terrified in your bed, trying to get your rest; these animals are throwing a party in your attic! They quickly make your home theirs; they will nest, mate, have babies, poop, pee, eat and then go to sleep peacefully. All while your pulling your hair out trying to figure out what to do.
The types of noises you may be hearing can range from chewing vibrations, hard thumping, scratching or even worse; moans, cries and growling. Bats do not make as much noise, however you may hear very light, yet high pitched squeaking noises. If you're hearing these type of noises and you believe that you have a wildlife infestation here are some tips to help you out, so you know exactly what you need to do from here.
First things first, you need to inspect your entire property and look for any entry points. This includes the roof top, soffit breaks, attic vents and even under the home. If there are animals nesting in your attic, they got in there somehow, someway. With larger animals these spots will be easy to point out and you will clearly see the damage where they were entering and exiting. However, with smaller animals such as rats and bats, it may be more difficult to locate these entry points. You will need to look for any and all holes that are larger than a quarter. Also with rats and bats you will see black marks around any entry points. Once you have located entry points, you will need to make the necessary repairs. Every home owner's situation will be different; repairs can range from simply patching a hole, all the way to replacing an entire roof!
After fixing any damage or access points, now is when you will need to trap and remove the animals. You can purchase live traps for larger animals and you can purchase rat traps for the rats. However, when it comes to bats, it is highly suggested that you hire a licensed professional wildlife trapper to remove the bats, as there are strict laws and regulations in place to protect this important species. If you remove the bats incorrectly or at the wrong time of year, you can be hit with heavy fines. So, when it comes to bats please make sure to hire a professional animal removal company.
As far as the other animals, you can easily remove these animals yourself, if you feel comfortable doing so. Be very careful as wild animals are known to carry rabies and rabies is a deadly disease, with no known cure. If you do not feel comfortable trapping and removing the wildlife, there are plenty of companies that offer wildlife removal services. What these companies will do is provide an inspection. They will locate the damaged areas and entry points for you, find out what type of animal it is, set up the traps and remove the animals for you.
Then the wildlife trapping company will offer an exclusion service, where they will seal off the holes and repair the damage that is allowing the wild animals access to your home. These are all things that you can do yourself, but I always recommend hiring a professional because the company should offer you a warranty. In fact, if they do not offer a warranty do not go with that company, as they are not professionals. Professionals will always stand by their work and offer renewable warranties. Also check for reviews online before hiring a wildlife trapping company.
Once you have controlled the wildlife problem, it's important to perform some follow up work to prevent the problem from happening again. Here are some tips: trim away all tree and bush branches that are close to your home. Animals can follow the branches on to your roof top. Remove all dog and cat food from outside after the animals are finished eating; as this is one of the biggest culprits to bring wildlife to your home. Another culprit is the bird feeder, as rats and squirrels love the bird seed. If you've been hearing things in your attic, I hope you find this information helpful and I wish you luck in getting rid of the wildlife problem.

Squirrels are one of the most adaptable creatures. They can be found in many different locations around the world and in different environments. While their natural habitat is forested areas, they have easily adapted to urban life. Trees, scrubs and debris are for the most part where squirrels build their nests. At the same time however, attics and roofs can also easily become squirrel habitats. Attics, or roof crevices seem natural dwellings to these rodents because of their proximity to their natural habitats, trees. As a result, squirrels often find shelter in our homes and can create a series of problems.
The first thing you need to do when you are attempting squirrel removal from an attic is to make sure that you actually have squirrels. There are many other small animals that can get inside the house through small holes, such as mice, rats, snakes and other vermin. Animals as large as raccoons are known to get into houses; it is actually very common in certain parts of North America.
Squirrels, just like many other animals consider attics a good place to hide, during bad weather during certain seasons of the year. Once you have determined what type of animals you are sharing space with, you can do some research and familiarize yourself on the most proven removal methods. A good place to look for information is the Internet.
What you will find is that the best course of action would be to first determine the entry points. It is usually a hole in the siding of the roof, chimneys or even more obvious ones such as open window in the attic. Once you have determined the entry point get a set of wire traps with one way doors from your local hardware store. Bait and place the traps near the entry points. Once you capture the squirrels, make sure the nest is empty and there are no babies inside. If there are, remove them and reunite them with the adult squirrel in your garden.
Remove the nest and any debris from inside. Cover the obvious entry points and take a minute to inspect the exterior of your home for other possible entry points. Certain squirrel removal jobs are more complicated than others. If you are dealing with a more complicated squirrel removal situation, it is advised to contact a professional wildlife technician.
Animal control technicians have a lot more experience dealing with squirrel removal situations and as professionals they are more aware of the risks of performing animal control and removal. Removing wildlife from one's roof involves climbing on the roof, dealing with tools and potentially other unhealthy, unsanitary situations.
When it comes to your home making sure it is protected is key. It doesn’t matter if it is protection from mold, thieves, or animals. If your home is animal proofed then it is highly unlikely an animal would get inside, but there is still a chance that they can get in through an open window or door. Following these steps can help you prevent animals from getting in your home this winter. To get help with these steps and more call us. Our expert staff can identify problem areas and the solution for you.
How To Deter Skunks
Denver is plagued with many animal control problems. The recent problem with squirrels having bubonic plague is only one of them. Plague is an ancient disease and occurs in irregular cycles in many parts of the world including the United States.
What do you do if you have a sick squirrel on your property?
Do not attempt to capture the animal. Plague is transmitted by flea bites and any contact with wildlife may transfer the fleas to you.
The first call should be to a wildlife professional that is trained to remove the animal. If the animal appears lethargic, sluggish or just is not acting right, it may need to be taken to a Health Department for testing.
Distemper is another common disease that infects raccoons in Denver, Aurora, Lakewood, Golden and other cities in the Denver Metro area.
Symptoms of distemper are a goopy discharge from the eyes, the eyes sunken into the head, a sluggish or drunken appearance while walking and disorientation. The animal is usually not aggressive; it just appears "out of it".
A wildlife professional has the proper equipment and training to safely and effectively handle any potentially diseased animal. Distemper is not transmittable to humans, but your pets can acquire the disease. Make sure they are protected from the disease through vaccination from your Veterinarian.
Prevention is the key to stop animals from living in your home. Take a look at the outside of the home and make sure that vents are screened, rooflines sealed and chimneys capped.
Colorado is host to many wildlife diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Lime Disease, Hantavirus, Distemper and Rabies. By protecting your property from infestation, you will prevent most wildlife occurrences.
If you suspect your home has been invaded by unwanted guests, have a Wildlife Professional inspect it as soon as possible.
Chimney Animals: Animals living in a chimney are typically the result of having an uncapped chimney that is either near branches or on a home that is frequented with animals. Common situations for Michigan wildlife in chimneys is raccoons and raccoon mother with litters of babies denning in the spring, squirrels that have fallen down the chimney and are unable to climb back up, birds that have fallen down and are unable to fly up the chimney, chimney swifts which are able to fly out once reaching adult size, bat colonies roosting inside of the chimney and we have even encountered a duck that had fell into the chimney and sadly died.Animal removal from chimneys will vary in methods from animal to animal. Raccoons are usually either fished out by hand or if the correct time of the year they areevicted with a hormone treatment, squirrels can typically be scared into running up a rope that has been dropped down the chimney, birds that can not fly must be hand removed, and chimney swifts and bats must be removed with a one way valve once the young are able to fly.
Think you can handle your Michigan Wildlife control problems by yourself?
Bats are excluded from your home or attic through a live exclusion process. This is done by bat proofing your home with screen, caulking, caps, etc. Also a one-way trap door is installed at the entry point so the bats can get out but not get back in. We are not exterminators or a bat pest control company. We strictly and proudly only use poison free bat control methods. When thinking of exterminator or pest control company we urge you to think of the humane method for bat removal. Bats are protected both federally and in the state of Michigan. No ultrasonic, high frequency device, or bat repellent will get rid of your bats nor keep them out. Moth balls or "bat away" never works. In fact it is harmful to have in your attic or home. FTC gives a warning on the use of ultrasonic pest control devices. For more information check out our "How to Get Rid of Bats" Page.
