Should I try to remove wildlife on my own, or hire Pros?

Wildlife Removal: DIY or Professionals? Choosing the right approach depends on several factors, including your comfort level, knowledge, and the specific situation.

When DIY Works:

  • Simple Deterrence: Basic measures like securing trash cans or trimming bushes can often be done on your own.

  • Small Pests: Smaller animals like squirrels or birds might be manageable with DIY methods.

Fun Fact: DIY efforts can work for minor issues, but larger infestations or specific species might require professional intervention.

When to Call in the Pros: Certain situations and animals warrant professional assistance due to the risk involved:

1. Bats:

  • Rabies Risk: Bats carry rabies, making them potentially dangerous if handled improperly.

  • Expertise Needed: Their protected status and the potential for disease transmission make bat removal a job for professionals.

2. Raccoons:

  • Disease Concerns: Raccoons can carry diseases that can be harmful to humans and pets.

  • Protective Mothers: Raccoons can become aggressive when protecting their young.

3. Skunks:

  • Odor and Rabies: Skunks are known for their foul odor, and they can carry rabies.

  • Spray Risk: Attempting to handle them without expertise could lead to getting sprayed.

4. Larger Infestations:

  • Health Risks: Large infestations pose health risks due to waste and potential disease transmission.

  • Property Damage: Extensive damage may require specialized tools and techniques.

5. Dangerous Situations:

  • Aggressive Animals: Wildlife that shows aggression or signs of illness should be left to professionals.
