Fall and winter months are the safest for tree trimming, brush clearing, and home repairs with the least amount of impact on neighboring wildlife.
This is the time of year to inspect the perimeter of your home for signs of uninvited 'house guests'.
Look for broken vents, and holes that lead into attic areas or under a home's foundation.
Look for dirty paw prints, or 'grease marks' indicating 'high-traffic'.
Check for bat droppings on siding, or on the ground below overhangs. Bat feces resemble mouse droppings, but easily crumble to powder.
Even though it's not breeding season for animals like raccoons, you still want to take precautions so you don't entomb an animal inside your home!
If you'd like a wildlife professional to perform an inspection, or if you'd like their help in devising the safest, most humane, and non-lethal method of evicting wildlife, or discouraging their residency, please contact one of the following businesses.
