Whether it is the tiniest mouse or a 20 pound raccoon, taking measure to keep the animal out to begin with is simpler than the headache of dealing with a wildlife intrusion. Routine maintenance and inspection around the home will help eliminate possible entry points before something takes up residence. Mice only need ¼ inch to find their way in, but a raccoon simply needs something to grab hold of, and it will create its own entry point. It is important to include the following items in your list of maintenance checks and tasks:
shooting out of the fireplace is plenty startling, but an old abandoned bird nest can be a much larger threat when the next fire is lit.
Proper management of wildlife concerns starts with proper identification. Animals are experts at finding areas that will conceal their true identity. Attic invaders tend to get amplified causing people to mistake squirrels for raccoons and raccoons for bears. A Rove technician will dig in to the insulation and tight spaces to find the clues that will indicate who the culprit is and consequently shorten the path to the solution.
Removal of Pest
Once the target is known, an efficient plan for removal will be developed. A Rove wildlife technician will determine the tools that will best protect your home while quickly and safely removing the uninvited animal from your home. Quick removal minimizes further damage and contamination in the home. Rove does not only get the animal out, but will work to remove damaged or contaminated parts of the structure to allow everything to be restored to its proper state.
Rove’s technicians will identify the entry points that allowed the initial structural penetration and ensure they are not left as open doors for the culprit’s cohorts. In addition, the technician will analyze surrounding environmental elements that may be adjusted to deter animals in the future and help manage population levels around the home. Regular inspections and population monitoring will help provide clues as to when preventive measures should be taken so as to avoid having to go down the path of reactionary control.
