One of the last things that you would expect to find in your home in Staten Island, NY is wildlife. Surprisingly, wildlife does find its way into homes in the New York City area quite frequently.
Compared to many of the insects or spiders that a Staten Island exterminator generally encounters, wildlife is a serious issue that can present real danger to you and your family. For example, these creatures are much larger than insects or rodents, and they also transmit many diseases that make them even more dangerous.
Types of Wildlife
The most common types of wildlife that you could expect to see in your home are raccoons, skunks, woodchucks, squirrels, and bats. These creatures are normally harmless, but if they become cornered, or they carry rabies, they present a much more dangerous situation.
How They Get In
Animals often enter homes by climbing in through vents and openings in the roof. They also get in through open doors, windows, or large tears in window screens. These are all issues that our team can solve for you so you won’t have to worry about wildlife getting into your home again.
How We Treat a Wildlife Invasion
A portion of our Staten Island pest control professionals have training to handle wildlife inside of homes. Wildlife incidents aren’t as common as insect or rodent problems, but the members of our company are dedicated to the task and know exactly what they are doing.
The Treatment Cycle
- Wildlife location and identification.
- Wildlife trapping.
- Relocation away from home.
- Put up barriers to keep future invaders out.
Even though the wildlife may appear to be cute and cuddly from a distance, animals like skunks and raccoons can cause serious damage to the inside of your home, and they can be dangerous to you and your children if you get too close to them. Our seasoned professionals will trap the animal alive and simply relocate them to a different spot.
After the wildlife is out of the house, our team puts barriers in place to prevent access in the future. The vents around your home are sealed with a mesh barrier that will keep the entry to a one-time event.
