What Do Pest and Animal Control Professionals Do?
Pest and animal control professionals provide a broad range of services related to managing pest control, particularly related to insects such as termites, bed bugs, mosquitoes, and ants, and small mammals like mice, bats, squirrels, and raccoons. Services include animal removal (like extermination and physical extraction) and prevention (like blocking common wildlife entryways to the home). Some animal and pest control companies even provide reparative services, like replacing attic insulation that was damaged by an animal infestation.
As the specialties and expertise of each pest and animal control company will vary, it’s important to reach out to a variety to find out which is the best fit for your needs. The following list features a few common services that local companies provide:
Exclusion. Exclusion refers to the method of keeping wildlife from entering your house or property. A professional will locate typical entry points, and apply proper sealing techniques, which can include any of the following:
- Adding chimney caps and/or screens, which helps prevent animals from falling into, or nesting in, chimneys.
- Replacing lightweight roof vents with heavy, more secure vents on the roof.
- Repairing and reinforcing any holes in house siding, which helps discourage animal infestation.
- Installing durable screening around the bases of porches and decks, to prevent animals from nesting underneath.
Animal Waste Sanitization Services. Even after pests have been removed, you will likely have to contend with waste they’ve left behind. In particular, as mice and rat droppings can spread bacteria and disease, it’s important to reach out to a pest and animal control professional for this important wildlife control service.
