It’s always great to admire wildlife from afar when out in nature, but one space that should be strictly for human use—exception for pets—is our houses and yards. Unfortunately, wildlife doesn’t understand the concept of property lines, and those that live in rural areas are susceptible to the occasional critter visit.
While most homeowners deal with wildlife from time to time, you’ll need outside help if that occasional critter visit has turned into a home invasion. Lucky for you, the professionals at Budget Pest Control have experience helping clients get rid of their unwanted house guests by offering humane wildlife trapping and animal removal services.
Why Are Animal Removal Services Important?
Some wildlife may not seem to be much of a nuisance, or even dangerous, and you might wonder if it’s necessary to have it removed, especially when the animals are just seeking refuge in the cold winter months. Though they may not seem problematic, ridding your home of critters should be of top priority.
Disease control is one of the two main reasons animal removal services are so essential. Animals carry some pretty nasty diseases that can infect humans, and while not all of them are life-threatening, animals such as skunks and raccoons carry lethal diseases like rabies.
Since having wildlife in your house puts your family at unnecessary risk for severe and sometimes deadly diseases, their removal should be a primary concern.
Besides the health risk, animals pose a danger to your home. Even the smallest animals can be extremely destructive, and they can cause extensive damage to your house in many different ways.
Animals can harm electrical systems, cause structural damage to your home, and create holes that allow even more unwanted guests easy access.
Keep in mind that these are just a few of a long list of issues they create for your house. Animals always surprise us with their capacity to inflict damage on homes, so it’s best to evict them.
Signs of Animal Infestations
You may not want to believe you have an infestation, but there are some telltale signs that an animal has taken up residence in your home or on your property.
The most obvious way to tell if you have an infestation is the presence of animal feces. These droppings are a health hazard because the spores and bacteria they contain can become airborne, and they can also cause structural damage to your home.
Strong odors are another giveaway that wildlife has decided to live in your home. Being in an unknown environment poses plenty of risks to animals, and it’s not uncommon for them to die from electrocution or falling between walls. The unidentifiable odor of a decaying body is another indicator that you have a problem.
Once there are more than one or two animals, as is the case with social pack animals, the noise level usually increases. You’ll often hear sounds like scampering, jumping, scratching, or gnawing, which is an indication that you’ve got a problem and need to hire some help.
Finally, even the smallest of critters cause damage to your property. Look for telltale signs that indicate the presence of animals, such as holes, wires that have been chewed through, or ruined insulation.

Why Hire a Professional for Animal Infestations
While you may feel confident in your ability to solve the problem and want to save money, it’s best to leave this job to someone who knows what they’re doing. A professional, like a Budget Pest Control team member, is the safest, most effective way to deal with wildlife control.
Wildlife control poses various health hazards, such as the removal of feces or dead animals, that are best left to those trained to handle them. When it comes to live animals, even the ones that seem non-threatening can be territorial if there are babies present, which may cause them to attack you.
