Pests come in many forms, often requiring professional help to get them out of a home or off a property. Whether they are of the furry or insect variety, pests of any type need to be handled professionally and safely. In most cases, dealing with an infestation can be difficult without the help of a professional service. In other situations, however, an infestation could be easily dealt with by the homeowner with the right tools on hand. Ants, spiders, roaches, and even bed bugs are usually easily handled by homeowners with the right spray chemicals. Unfortunately, even these relatively easy to deal with insects can often overrun a home if not taken care of quickly.
When it comes to the larger varieties of pests, it often requires a wider range of tools, baits, and experience to get rid of a pest. When animals enter a property or home, they are often looking for shelter, food, and water. If your home has these things available, in easily accessible places, they will tend to frequent those places often. One of the first steps many Wildlife Services take is to remove the source of these items so the animals have nothing to seek out. The next step, will usually be to close off the pathways they have made to enter the property or home, such as holes in fences, walls, or doors. Without these access points, they will have no way to enter the home or property easily.
Once these first steps are taken, many Wildlife Services will then set traps out to catch the animal safely. These traps usually are wire cages, with baits inside that trigger once the animal’s weight releases a spring sensor inside. Once trapped safely inside, the animal can then be relocated to a specific area to be reintroduced back into nature away from human populations. Many wildlife services prefer to catch and release animals, as opposed to exterminating them, to help preserve the species whenever possible. This comes in handy for insect infestations as well, especially where bees are concerned.
