Wildlife can also bring about secondary invaders, such as mites and fleas, that can affect humans and pets alike. Additionally, their droppings and eating habits can carry disease and cause damage to your property.

Wildlife Removal FAQs
How quickly can you come to my home?
If you’re experiencing wildlife issues, we will come to your home immediately to inspect and identify your home and the issue. We can also survey damage that day as well. We will schedule a time to come back for exclusion work and damage repair if needed/interested.
How can I keep nuisance wildlife away from my home?
In general, nuisance animals are attracted to developed lands because of readily available food sources and shelters created by residences. For the most part, you can keep your property and family safe from coming into contact with wildlife by properly storing foods and garbage, and by excluding animals from borrowing opportunities.
Are your wildlife control, exclusion, and repair services backed by a guarantee?
While the warranty period differs depending on the animal and exclusion work, many guarantees can come with a one-year warranty which is renewable for annual inspections moving forward.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for exclusion or repair services?
Nothing out of the ordinary—just make sure the area is clean and there is enough access for our team to work.
How long will it take to repair wildlife damage?
The expected completion time is created on a case-by-case basis. It’s depending on the season and how extensive the damage is. It could take anywhere from two days to two weeks. Our team will always keep you up to date with dates.
Are there any limitations?
Generally, the only limitations we have if there is a safety issue (i.e., slate roofs, height restrictions, etc.).
