No job is to big or small we can handle them all.
House Mice: Mice are small, and oftentimes people don't hear them, but at night when everything is quiet, you may hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet above your ceiling. The House Mouse loves to live in a ...house, and the walls and attic are safe places. At night, they may venture out into the kitchen in search of food, or go outside for food and water, then back into the house before dawn.
Roof Rats: Rats are commensal with people - they live in urban areas, and often thrive on our food and shelter. They seek out the warmth and safety of houses and other buildings, and commonly take refuge in walls or attics. If you hear scratching and running in the middle of the night, it's probably rats.
Raccoons: Raccoons frequently break into attics in search of safe shelter. As with the squirrels, it's often a female raccoon who is looking for a safe place in which to raise a litter of young. Raccoons are very strong, and can rip open the roof or soffit in order to get in. If you hear heavy walking noises in your attic, it's probably raccoons. If you hear chattering or the squealing of young, it's probably a litter of baby raccoons
Opossums: These opportunistic marsupials often live in human structures, under sheds and houses, and they also often live in attics. Just as with the other animals, a female with young is most likely to choose to live in the attic. Possums, equipped with their opposable thumbs, are great climbers, and can easily get onto the roof to their entry point. Possums do not live in attics as frequently as these other animals, but it does happen from time to time.
Other Animals: Stray cats will sometimes live in an attic as well. Bats are very common, but people don't often notice them until the colony becomes very large and vocal, or until the odor becomes overwhelming. Birds also live in attics from time to time. Whatever the animal is, a wildlife professional can easily determine the species - if it's not spotted outright, there's plenty of evidence left behind! - Trails, footprints, droppings, chewmarks, and more.
There are many wild animals native to the United States that people likely encounter on a near-daily basis, sometimes without even realizing it. These common backyard creatures have found ways to co-exist with humans, which unfortunately can lead them to become nuisance pests and even occasional health threats. Though these wild animals may not always be a welcome sight for homeowners, they do have some interesting characteristics!
Squirrels are fierce fighters.
Squirrel varieties can be found in every region of the United States. A group of squirrels is called a scurry. Squirrels are extremely territorial and will even fight to the death to defend their area. Mother squirrels are especially vicious when protecting their babies. Squirrels frequently enter attics and chimneys in the winter. To keep them out, seal all possible points of entry around the house, screen vents and openings to chimneys and keep tree limbs cut back six to eight feet from the roofline.
Raccoons will eat almost anything.
Raccoons are omnivores and will eat just about anything, including fish, mice, insects, stolen eggs and human trash. Raccoons also sometimes "wash" their food by rapidly dunking it in water before eating. Their adaptable eating habits have allowed them to make themselves at home in many environments, from forests and marshes to cities and the suburbs. Homeowners should be sure to store trash cans and recycling bins in sealed areas or with animal-proof lids to keep raccoons, which are frequent carriers of rabies, off their property.
Opossums are good actors.
Opossums are the only marsupials found in North America. Female opossums give birth to young as tiny as honey bees that immediately crawl into their mother's pouch where their development continues. Typically, fewer than half of opossum young survive in to adulthood. Opossums are known for "playing dead" when threatened by predators. They will fall onto their sides and lie on the ground, extend their tongues and either close their eyes or stare straight in to space. Do not approach an opossum in this state, as they have sharp teeth and in rare cases may bite if they feel threatened. Opossums have been known to create messy dens in homeowner's attics and garages.
Bats are often protected by law.
Bats are protected by law in most states, so it is important to check with animal control or wildlife services for any regulations before bat-proofing your home. The best time to bat-proof is the beginning of autumn, when bats leave for hibernation. Bats can pose serious health threats to humans if they are not removed from structures; bat droppings can harbor a fungus that causes lung disease.
Voles are small, but mighty.
Voles, also known as meadow mice or field mice, are a type of rodent that can be found in most regions of the United States. They are active year-round, and do not hibernate. Their populations tend to fluctuate and are dependent on factors such as food quality, climate and physiological stress. Voles construct many tunnels with various burrow entrances and can cause extensive damage to orchards, young trees and field crops. They're even capable of ruining lawns and golf courses with their extensive tunnel systems.
Groundhogs are true hibernators.
Groundhogs: are among the few mammals that enter into true hibernation, which generally starts in late fall near the end of October and continues until late February. These rodents will gorge themselves all summer to build up their fat reserves. After the first frost, they enter their underground burrows and hibernate until spring, where they survive off of their accumulated body fat. During hibernation, the groundhog's heart rate plunges and its body temperature will not be much higher than that inside the burrow. To keep groundhogs out of crawlspaces, it is important to inspect homes for access points, such as broken vent covers or holes in the foundation. Burrowing groundhogs have been known to destroy building foundations.
These odd-looking mammals are about the size of a cat. Most active at night, these creatures have poor eyesight. Armadillos are diggers and can damage lawns and flowerbeds in their search for grubs, a primary food source. To reduce armadillos in your yard, keep watering and fertilization to a minimum.
Armadillos have the ability to carry the bacterium that causes leprosy in humans (Mycobacterium leprae). However the risk of contracting leprosy from an armadillo is extremely low. Scientists believe that in order to contract leprosy from an armadillo, one must handle armadillos frequently and/or consume armadillo meat.
Most armadillo damage comes about as a result of their digging habits, taking the forms of holes and burrows.
Signs of armadillo damage include:
- holes throughout lawn, about 3-5" wide and 1-3" deep
- uprooted plants and seedlings
- burrow entrances, about 7-10" in diameter, next to or underneath structures, sidewalks, brush piles, low-lying shrubs, etc.
- damaged underground wires or pipes
- cracked foundation or concrete sidewalk/driveway
- armadillo tracks: four toes in front with elongated center two toes; five toes in back with elongated center three toes; all claws visible
Mice and Rats are commensal. That is, they prefer to share food and shelter with man. Mice and Rats and their parasites share our workplaces, restaurants, hospitals, schools, food processing plants and especially……..our homes.
IN OUR HOMES, they share the food we eat and the furniture where we sleep, relax and store our belongings. They will use plumbing voids as well as circulation vents to travel from one part of a home/building to another. It is this habit that assures the spread of contaminated nesting material, feces, and urine and body hairs.
IN JUST ONE MONTHS TIME, mice and rats can produce thousands of fecal pellets and deposit urine in areas where we eat and sleep. Their feces and urine may contain millions of bacteria or viruses and easily contaminate more than what they eat or with what they come in contact. The damage these rodents do to food and buildings runs in the tens of billions of dollars world-wide. Mice and rats are even a significant fire hazard, suspected in one fourth of all fires of unknown origin. We have a disinfection service guaranteed to destroy all contaminants.
MICE AND RATS HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE for some of the most devastating disease outbreaks of all time. More than 10 million people have died from rodent borne disease. Rats and mice are known to carry and or spread about 55 different diseases. Lyme disease, Typhus and the Plague are just a few; the deer mouse has recently been implicated in the outbreak of hanta-virus, a rare but highly fatal disease.
Store trash cans and recycling bins indoors, or in sealed areas such as a locked shed or outhouse. If trash cans are kept outdoors, use animal-proof lids. Remove other obvious sources of food and shelter from your property. Inspect the outside of your home for holes or access points, such as broken vent covers. Repair any loose siding or shingles. Install a mesh cover or cap over chimneys and other exposed openings to prevent entry.
