These vents are favorites for bats, birds, squirrels and raccoons. Bats will rest behind the slats. Birds will build nests in them and raccoons and squirrels will simply push through the slats, through the thin screen behind them, and enter your attic. Let us secure these for you.

Can I Remove Animals Myself?

This is a common question we get asked and one that many homeowners might consider. There are a few different elements of animal removal to consider. First, there is the act of actually removing the animals, whether they be dead or alive. If the animals are alive there is a danger in getting bitten or injured, as well as the potential for contamination for bacteria and disease. If animals are dead you must be careful of bacteria and disease, as well as the obvious smell and general level of grossness with which you will contend.

Once you have the animals removed, you have to worry about cleanup. With live animals in your home such as squirrels, bats, or raccoons you will likely have a waste problem, as well as nest materials the animals might have brought in. All of this will need to be removed and much like removing the animals themselves there are risks of contamination and germs. If the animal is dead it even more unpleasant and it is extremely important to perform proper decontamination. Generally household bleach mixed with water is a good cleaning agent.

Finally once you have removed the animals and properly cleaned up the mess, you will need to ensure other animals are excluded from getting into your home. You may have a small opening you don’t realize is there, and some sort of cover or mesh is generally used to prevent animals from getting in. You would be amazed at how small the opening needs to be for animals like mice, squirrels and bats to get into your home.

With all of that said, it clearly is a lot of work and can be extremely unpleasant to properly rid your home of unwanted wildlife. With Critter Control of the Triangle, you can be sure you are getting the most trusted company in the area, who treats your family like our family. We will work diligently to get rid of your stressful animal problem, call to book today!
