Wildlife Trapping and Removal

Keeping animals out of your home with preventative measures will make your life a lot easier. Trash should be sealed outside your home, holes in your attic and crawl space should be covered or repaired, and other areas of your home should be animal-proofed.

However, if any wildlife still manages to get into your home, or is currently residing in your house, you will need to get rid of them as soon as you can. Animals leave behind all kinds of waste and can cause major damage to your home.

There are many different methods for pest removal. But, in this post, we will talk about wildlife trapping and removal. Of course, you can buy trapping devices like snares and cages, and attempt to bait an animal into them. Still, it can be difficult to find the right bait and successfully trap wildlife. In addition, amateurs can make many mistakes and might even harm the animal. This is why we recommend using our services.

Mighty Men Pest Control can help get rid of any pests on your property promptly and safely. You might think you are saving money if you trap an animal yourself. But you are just creating added work for yourself. If you trap an animal, the animal becomes your responsibility. And, in some areas of the country, you cannot remove wildlife without permission from your local authorities.

So, it is much more convenient to have professionals come in and deal with your pest problem for you. Any animals we find will be treated humanely and will be taken to a location where they can live peacefully without disturbing you. This way you won’t have to worry about your pest problem anymore, and the animal can be taken off your property with as little stress as possible.

How Do We Trap Wildlife?

 

The first thing we do is assess the situation. Our team will come into your home and find the animal that has been bothering you. We will look for any entry and exit points. Once the animal has been located, we will then begin setting up our traps. Our traps are entirely humane and well put together.

We also base our trapping methods on the specific species of the animal. This way we can get the best results. Traps that will work on the animal will be assembled and brought to your home. Then, we will place the trap near the entry point the animal or animals are using to get in and out of your home. Again, each animal is different so we use our expert knowledge to help trap the animal without any issues.

Once the animal is trapped, we will begin the removal process. You won’t have to worry about driving the animal off your property. We will do this for you. And, the animal will be placed in a location that they can survive in.

Pigeons can be a nuisance if left to make a permanent residence on your building. You constantly have to schedule an attic cleanout to clear their droppings, which means exposing yourself to diseases. Having such a health hazard on your premises is bad for business.

Other than that, pigeons can destroy air filters and air conditioning units. Their droppings can clog pipes and gutters. Pigeons are not only a problem for commercial clients but also homeowners as well. You can easily spot pigeons in busy cities and residential areas.

Pigeons are adaptable to a new environment and can survive in areas with high human activity. This means simple scare tactics will not work. Getting rid of pigeons requires the help of professional bird removal technicians.

How to Keep Pigeons Out of a Wall

Pigeons are actually harmless birds, but pigeon activities in and around your home may cause significant damage to your property. These birds are called winged rats for a reason, they really can be a nuisance. Pigeons can infest your home with disease-carrying mites or ticks, and their pathogen-laden droppings are yet another problem. Pigeons should be nowhere near your home, let alone in your walls. Here is a great source at pestcontrolbird.com to learn more about bird removal.

But if you’ve got a pigeon problem, here’s how you can deal with it. 

The easiest way to keep pigeons out of your wall is to find the entry point, install an exclusion device, and let them fly out themselves. But to keep them away for good, you have to keep them away from your property. 

Pigeons won’t get the chance to enter your walls if they are not already roosting on your roof or chimney. If you can successfully keep these birds away from your property, then you will never have to worry about having them inside your walls. Pigeons are persistent and no matter how many times you chase them away, they will always return, except you take some extra steps to ensure that you make your home uncomfortable or inaccessible to them. 

To permanently keep pigeons away from your property—walls, attic, roof—you will have to make certain changes like installing pigeon spikes or netting that deter birds or putting up physical deterrents that repel pigeons like fake owls. Inspect your building and seal holes: check the roof, attic, and chimney for holes and seal them off. Since pigeons live in the sky, they will access your building from the upper sections. They will often perch on the roof or chimney and can get inside through any cracks they find. You can keep pigeons out by properly and completely sealing every crack, also cap your chimney to prevent pigeons from building their nest in it. If you make your home undesirable to pigeons, they will be forced to stay away, and you will eventually have some peace. 

Some pigeon deterrents to consider

Pigeons may not be scared of humans, but they have natural predators that they find very scary. You can use this knowledge to your advantage and install ceramic owls or hawks to scare them away. But this technique alone will not do the trick because, after a while, the birds will realize that the owl is fake and will continue coming to your roof. You can also try reflective objects like foils or mirrors, this works because birds have a hard time seeing properly when they are close to shiny and reflective objects. 

Another option to explore is water hoses, you can drive pigeons away by spraying them with water, but this method is very temporary as the birds will return once they notice that the water is gone. 

Remove attractants

One of the most effective methods for keeping a pigeon away is to make him less interested in being there in the first place. Remove any standing water that could be used for drinking and bathing. You'll also want to be certain that all trash is contained and out of reach to avoid any free meals.

Bird feeders will always be a problem, despite the fact that you can buy designs with narrow openings that only allow songbirds to enter. If you have bird feeders, consider removing them, especially if you notice that they are attracting the wrong birds and creating a problem for you. 

Another thing that may attract pigeons to your property is a vegetable garden. It’s impossible to hide a vegetable garden if you have one. But you can make your fresh tomatoes and cherries out of reach to birds by investing in a fruit cage. Use a mesh wire fruit cage to protect your veggies and keep nuisance birds away.
