As winter approaches, animals such as raccoons and squirrels will begin seeking a warm place to avoid the cold, and your home is a tempting target. They can chew through elements of your roofs to get into your attic, which can cause some major problems.
While getting into your home and finding a good nesting place, animals can chew through electrical wires and insulation, which, in addition to the hole they made getting in, can damage your home.
They bring with them droppings, lice, fleas, and ticks that cause disease, and they’ll bring in food that can attract rodents and other pests to cause further problems.
Many of the animals who come in are pregnant females that will have two-three young by spring. Not all of these will survive and will begin decomposing in your home. The result is a bad smell and a threat to your family’s health.
If you suspect an animal has gotten into your home, it’s important to contact us right away. The sooner we can get to the animal and get it out, the better we can minimize the damage.
