DIY wildlife control is limited, and thus we always recommend at least consulting with a professional
Signs of Animal Activity
So, you’ve made it this far, and you’re certain that the scratching in your attic isn’t a ghost. Looking for these signs may point to the culprit:
- Nests around the attic, especially near the insulation
- Urine stains, smells, or droppings
- Chewed insulation, electric wiring, and ducts
If you’ve inspected your attic or crawlspaces, and have found any of these signs, then you can rest assured that you, indeed, have a problem. The extent of the droppings, nests, and further damage may point to the exact species of animal you are dealing with.
Ridding Your Attic of Wildlife: Exclusion
You’ve heard the hissing, scampering, and crawling, and you’ve seen the further physical evidence–now what? Now it’s time to get dirty and survey the entire property for any entry points, which there definitely will be. Finding the entry-point can be time consuming and lead you into the most dangerous parts of your property, such as roofs, ducts, and chimneys. It is with the most sincerity that Apex Wildlife Control recommends consulting a trained company to perform this exclusion. Apex Wildlife Control has the trained, licensed, and insured professionals to complete any exclusion job. We have the tools and the experience to solve your problem.
Exclusion is carried out by surveying the area that is being affected by wildlife. If it’s an attic, it’s likely there’s a hole in the roofing, side panel, or walls. Old houses are often times more susceptible to damage from weather, age, and wildlife. Take your time during this exclusion, leave no part of your attic unchecked.
