If you had the right information, tools and equipment, it would be possible for most of us to be able to handle any conflicts that we may be having with wildlife. However, the truth of the matter is that dealing with any kind of wildlife is not a simple do-it-yourself activity; you need to identify a competent wildlife removal company so they can do that which they are trained and paid to do while ensuring that you and your family remain safe and sound. There are simple tips you can follow to get the best wildlife removal company.
Inspection and written estimate: It is basically not possible for a wildlife removal service provider to give you a proper assessment and give you a price quote on phone; the best they should be able to do on phone is to give you rough estimates regarding their services and fees. Always ensure that the animal removal service you choose does an on-site inspection before they can give you a written estimate. It is during the on-site visit that the company will be able to what animals may have invaded your home, their entry points and potential entry points, whether or not they have offspring and of course how they determined their answers.
Get specifics: A good animal removal company should be able to show you pictures of the animals that may have invaded your home in addition to what will need to be done after they are through with their work in order to ensure that there is no recurrence. Ask for specific details about how the wildlife control service will resolve the problem and exactly how they are going to treat the animals. If the animal has to be killed, you should be told why in addition to how the offspring, if any are going to be treated; ask also whether their methods are long term.
Insist on humane techniques: There are legal prohibitions regarding the killing of wildlife especially if you are dealing with species that are protected by law. If there is any form of wildlife in your property, you should always insist that the animal removal service uses humane ways such as eviction or exclusion strategies; some of these methods of wildlife removal include one-way doors, re-union of families or hands-on removal.
Prevent a recurrence of the problem: You want to make sure also that the prospective wildlife control service that you choose will also provide a complete range of animal proofing or exclusion services and as much as possible they should be able to carry at least one year’s guarantee against re-entry. The only way to can say animal removal has been done effectively is when entry points are identified and thereafter are fitted with exclusion material that is strong enough to stand up to future challenges by wildlife.
Be on the lookout: You must not sign any contract with an animal removal company that have open ended clauses that could allow the company to levy other charges that may not have been agreed upon at the beginning.
