Guest post: 5 Things you need to know about wildlife removal

Wildlife is great, but most forms of wildlife should stay in the wild. Today I’m lucky enough to be able to share a guest post by some very knowledgeable experts so read on to find out how to keep your home pest-free…

Unfortunately, certain forms of wildlife like invading human homes and can become a health and safety hazard. At that point, it is time to call pest control.  Here are five things you need to know about wildlife removal to help ensure that the process goes smoothly for you and your family.

1. FINDING HELP IS EASY

Finding a pest control expert is as easy as typing “wildlife removal services near me” into your favourite search engine. When reviewing options, make sure to find a company that is reputable and has great reviews.

2. EXPERIENCE MATTERS

Getting rid of cockroaches is different from getting rid of mice or squirrels. When looking for a pest control company, make sure that the company is able to deal with your type of problem. Fortunately, companies like Terminix specialize in a variety of vermin.

3. YOU’LL NEED TO PREPARE

With any pest, you’ll need to go through and pack your belongings to help ensure that nothing is damaged during the fumigation process. You may also need to leave your home for a day or two to avoid exposure to harmful chemicals. A good company will offer plenty of advice on what you need to do to prepare for extermination day.

4. BEWARE OF DAMAGE 

Certain types of wildlife can cause damage to your home. Termites can eat through foundations while mice can chew through wiring and certain types of insulation. After you get rid of the pest, a home inspection is usually a good idea to help ensure that all damage is repaired.

5. PREVENTION IS IMPORTANT

Pest removal is a major inconvenience. Fortunately, there are various ways to prevent pests from re-entering your home. Your local pest experts can offer plenty of ideas on keeping your home pest free.

Uninvited wildlife can be annoying, but with a bit of work, you can make and keep your home pest free. Thanks to Terminix for this informative guest post – I’m so glad I could learn more about keeping my home safe and wildlife-free!

  2. Thanks Cassie, these are some fantastic tips, I’ve just moved to a house in the country and dealing with wildlife is something I am concerned about, there’s the good wildlife that I appreciate such as hedgehogs and the birds, but mice, ant’s etc.. I would rather not! So it’s good to have an ideal of the practical steps I should take to make sure that when they do appear they are dealt with in the best possible manner.

    Thank you!
