Raccoons are one of nature's most clever mammals that retain some superlative survival skills. Several features and characteristics of a home can be attractive to a wild raccoon. Harsh weather, breeding, and pure curiosity can all be definite influences for raccoons to take shelter or trespass onto residential properties. Continue reading to learn some reasons why you may be spotting raccoons more frequently on your property, and how to get rid of them for good.

Food

Raccoons are most motivated by food; just as any other wild animal. When homeowner's leave food sources outside or in their garage, raccoons are sure to sniff it out. They are great at hunting down meals, especially easy ones. Edibles such as pet food, garden produce, bird feed, and even dirty grills can all be desirable snacks for raccoons and other wild animals alike. If you have any of these items on your property, it may be the cause of your late-night visitors.

Memory

Raccoons will remember where reliable food and shelter sources are, and will return to them night after night. In order to get rid of raccoons from trespassing onto your property, you need to figure out what is attracting them in the first place. These areas above are a great place to start. Next, contact a local wildlife removal company to safely and humanely capture and release nuisance raccoons from your property.

With the young bats well able to fly, it seems that bats are showing up everywhere! They have been found in attics and chimneys in Atlanta on a regular basis.

With the abundant source of water in the area such as ATL, it creates a virtual bonanza of insects on the bat's menu.

Combine this food supply with plenty of homes and commercial buildings for roosting and that makes for the perfect situation if you are a bat!

What do bats look for when selecting a roosting site?

One important thing is it must be out of the weather. The inside of an attic or cave makes for some of the best locations that are out of the wind and rain. Air flow is equally important. Bats love to select areas where the air flows across their bodies keeping them cool. The inside of an attic can reach 130 degrees and bats could not live for long in this environment without the air flow.

Professional removal is the best solution to your bat pest control problem. Trying to resolve this problem by yourself often makes it worse. Bats carry rabies and should not be handled. If you should find one outside the home or building that is laying on the ground, do not pick it up! Each year people are bitten because they picked up a bat they thought was dead. This could be a sign that the bat is rabid.

Call a professional to have them examine your home if you suspect a bat infestation. Your Wildlife Professional in Atlanta and surrounding area.

When you own a home there is nothing worse than discovering that small animals, such as squirrels, have decided your home is a great place to live as well. While the temptation may be to try and remove and control and critters you have yourself, the fact is there are professionals who can help.

The problem with most household pests, such as rats, raccoons or pigeons, is that they find ways to hide and they damage homes to get in. That is why finding and hiring the right critter control and removal company is so important. These men and women are trained to track down the pests that are in your home, no matter where they hide.

Often, when a homeowner tries to remove critters on their own, they only get the ones they can see. This often leaves hundreds, maybe thousands, of other pests still hidden away. When you find the right critter control and removal company you know they will be professional. They will take care to make sure your home is safe for your and your family.

Since so many of these pests can bring in diseases and post real health risks to you and your family, it is important to have them removed. It pays to shop around, but it also pays to find the right company that will do the job you need done within the budget you have set. Since the health of your home and your family is so important, it is equally as important to find the right critter control and removal people to help keep your home clean and free from pests.

The key thing that must be done to prevent squirrels is making sure that the problem actually is squirrels. The best time to do an inspection for squirrels is an hour before sunrise into mid morning, or an hour before sunset into mid evening. The reason is because these two times of day are when squirrels are most actively moving away from their nests in search for food. Squirrels can scare very easily, so these inspections need to be done using binoculars. The purpose of these inspections is to identify if in fact the squirrels are entering a home, and if they are where the entry points are. Finding the entry points helps in locating the nests. The nest is normally very close to the entry point located between floor and ceiling joists in the insulation.

Once it has been determined that squirrels are the issue a thorough exclusion must be done in order to prevent the them from gaining access to a home. First, locate the main hole the squirrels are using to get into the home. Second, all holes that are 1/4 inch or larger in size must be sealed. The best products to use for this is hardware cloth or metal flashing. It is important to make sure that the main hole is left unsealed for now. The reason for this is to make sure that there are no squirrels trapped in the house. Thirdly, once all of the smaller holes have been sealed continue to observe the squirrel activity. When the younger squirrels are seen leaving the house without the company of any adults it is then the proper time to seal the main entry point. The best time to observe and seal this main hole in the early morning shortly after the squirrels have left. The one thing this technique requires is time.

There are some quicker ways to reduce a squirrel population. The first way is by using rat-sized wooden-based snap traps. These traps should be baited with either peanut butter or nuts, and placed along the runways between the entrance hole and the nest. These traps need to be checked daily, re-baited, relocated, and the trapped squirrels need to be removed. Another option is to used appropriately labeled rodenticides. These rodenticides give off a very distinct odor. For this reason these are typically used in unoccupied structures such as vacation homes. Lastly, in some cases calling an animal control expert is warranted.
