Pest Control for Raccoons, Opossums and Other Nuisance Wildlife
Wildlife Control: Eliminate Raccoons, Opossums, Skunks and Squirrels from your Property
Sometimes observing wildlife can be a relaxing pastime, but not when it comes to raccoons, opossums, squirrels and skunks in your yard. Not only are these wild animals a nuisance, but some of them are vectors for rabies, putting your family and pets at risk.
Outside of the physical threat of disease-carrying wildlife, squirrels, raccoons and other pests can also wreak havoc on the structure of your home, causing damage to attics, garages, chimneys and other surfaces. They can tear up your landscaping and outside entertaining areas with little effort and turn your garbage cans into their playground.
Removing wildlife from your yard can turn into a do-it-yourself nightmare. These pests have survived for a reason; they are smarter than you think! The professionals at Wil-Kil have the training and experience needed to know the best way to catch wild animals. Wil-Kil can help with trapping and removal of the pests below, among others:
Wil-Kil will begin by inspecting your yard and the surrounding areas to understand what brought the wild animal in to start with. Usually wild animals are there because of three things: food, shelter and water. If you eliminate their access to these things, you will make your property less desirable.
Your inspection will also help us identify areas of your home that may be conducive to an animal entry due to a structural deficiency or sanitation issues. You can also do your part by taking the following preventative measures:
- Repair small holes, cracks or openings around your home
- Keep your garbage cans covered and away from your house
- Keep pet food inside an air-tight container
- Keep garage doors closed when not in use
