What to do About Wildlife in Your Home
When wildlife finds its way into your home, it can lead to destructive damage and can cause health hazards. In Portland, some of the most common creatures that invade our home include squirrels, skunks, and moles. If you suspect a problem, it is best to consult with a professional pest control company.
Your home is the ideal warm place for squirrels to store food and nest. Unfortunately, these creatures can cause extensive damage. As they chew through everything, your home’s entire structure may be at risk. Some of the most dangerous hazards may include electrical fires, which result from them chewing on your wires. Although a homeowner may attempt a DIY solution, it is best to consult with pest control experts who use effective and humane methods of removal.
Skunk Control and Management
Besides emitting a terrible smell, skunks are known to carry diseases. On the exterior of your home, they may damage your grass as well. Normally the first sign of a problem will be a mess around your garbage cans. These pests eat fruit, old food, worms, insects and pet food, and often nest under decks, in crawlspaces, structural foundations, or wood piles. To avoid being sprayed, it is smart to hire an experienced pest management company.
Even though moles are generally harmless and rarely enter homes, they can wreak havoc on your yard or garden. Moles dig tunnels beneath the ground in search of food. Along the way, they loosen plants and dry out their roots, which creates an ugly landscape. Since these animals spend a great deal of time out of sight, it may be difficult to catch them without assistance.
