Wildlife removal has been busy this week. Just in the last week I have removed a skunk that sprayed a dog from a yard in Highland, raccoons from an attic in Gary and tomorrow I am going to an appointment to remove raccoons that have been damaging insulation in an attic in Crown Point. I also have an appointment set for Saturday to trap moles in a yard in Valparaiso. We also have squirrel traps in a doctors office in Valparaiso. Animals are busy this time of year getting ready for winter. Don’t let them get established or cause too much damage in an attic before calling. They can trample insulation lowering r-value, defecate and cause thousands of dollars of damage in remediation work.
Just because we specialize in removing animals from attics doesn’t mean we don’t take care of the rest. Give us a call for any skunk trapping and animal control jobs like ground hogs, skunks living under your deck or moles digging up your yard. We would love to take care of that for you as well.
We recently received a call to remove a ground hog that was out in the middle of the day and wouldn’t run away when approached by people. We came and found the animal and were able to walk up to it and place it in a cage using a catch pole. We are not vets but it is easy to tell when something is not right. If you come across wildlife that is not afraid of humans or an animal that is usually nocturnal that is out in the middle of the day I would caution you to be careful. Some of these animals may be sick and some of the diseases that animals may carry are transferable to humans or pets. Better to leave the animal alone or if it is causing a nuisance or endangering people or pets to call us and we can remove it safely and humanely.
We are also specialized in removing animals from the attic. Give us a call for any wildlife pest control and animal trapping jobs like raccoon removal, skunks living under your deck or moles digging up your yard. We would love to take care of that for you as well.
