As far as pest control goes, nuisance wildlife removal is in a class of its own. Wildlife, including squirrels, raccoons, skunks, groundhogs, and bats can cause extensive damage to your home and property if left unchecked. Properly trained nuisance wildlife professionals can remove these threats from your home and relocate them safely and appropriately.
There is no one better in the Capital District to handle these wildlife threats than Thomas Pest Services. Our professionals are trained to not only remove nuisance wildlife from your home, but will also work with you to recommend changes to your property to keep them from invading once again in the future.
Problems Wildlife Cause for Homeowners
As spring approaches, the most common nuisance pests to watch out for are raccoons, squirrels, and skunks. These pests will be busy foraging for food soon, and your home is a great place for them to find it.
Skunks and raccoons will get into your trash, your pets’ food, bird feeders, gardens, your garage, and sometimes even your home. Squirrels are less apt to go for the trash and more likely to find their way right inside your attic or basement. Once there they will get into the spaces between your walls and make themselves at home. Squirrels are particularly troublesome in your home because they chew their way in and continue chewing through your insulation, walls, and even wires.
Reasons Professional Help is Best
Nuisance wildlife can carry diseases and, when they feel threatened, they will attack. You don’t want to risk catching an illness from their feces, getting sprayed with the stench of a skunk, or worse yet getting a rabies-infected bite. Trying to trap these types of animals yourself is risky. If you do trap them successfully, then what? You must know the proper procedure for relocating them so that they do not become a nuisance to someone else or come back to your home.

We will help you install preventative measures such as chicken wire around the underside of decks or recommend new ways to store your trash to keep these animals from returning.
