Call for Wildlife Control When…

You Hear Odd Noises in Your Wall or Attic

Once you have lived in your home or worked in your office for a certain amount of time, you become used to the noises the structure makes. In fact, you may become so accustomed to these sounds that you don’t even hear them after a while. This can make it easy to know when you hear something that just doesn’t sound right, whether it sounds like something is shifting around in the attic above your bedroom or scurrying around in the walls next to your desk. If you hear off noises in your walls, attic, or any other part of your property, this could be a sign of a wildlife infestation and critter control should be called right away.

Your Home Experiences Odd Electrical Problems

Here in the San Diego area, we have plenty of old homes and buildings. Some of these structures are prone to electrical problems as technological advancements are made, but not all of these problems have outdated systems to blame. In fact, if the lights flicker occasionally, a particular socket stops working, or you notice other electrical oddities in your home or office, then it could be that wild animals are to blame. Raccoons, rodents, and other critters love to hide out in attics and basements and they often enjoy chewing on electrical wires. As more than a nuisance, chewed wiring can also be a fire hazard and should be repaired right away.

You Notice a Persistent, Foul Smell

Wild animals are…well, they’re wild. That means that they have no issues using your attic, crawl space, or basement as their own personal restroom. As you might imagine, the longer an infestation goes on, the more advanced it becomes. You might have multiple generations of raccoons, skunks, bats, and other critters making themselves at home, which means that the amount of urine and feces they leave behind increases every day. This can lead to a persistent, foul odor that permeates your home or office. Any amount of buildup can cause extensive damage, and in some instances, even serious illness in humans.

You Hear Chirping and Flapping from Roof Vents

If you hear chirping and the sound of wings flapping through any of your ceiling vents, you might want to call a San Diego wildlife removal company as soon as possible. Our area is home to many types of pest birds, including cormorants, pigeons, and several species of swallows. If you have a bird infestation, you’re likely to hear the sounds of the flying pests as they feed their young and travel in and out of your home. Other signs of a bird infestation include seeing droppings near entry points, feathers and nest debris, and damage to your roof or eaves. Birds are known for carrying disease-spreading bacteria, so the sooner they are removed, the better.

You Discover Damage To the Interior Structure

Wild animals have a few primary missions, including eating, sleeping, and breeding. They could really care less about their surroundings as long as their den provides them with all of the essentials they need to accomplish these three tasks and they are known for causing plenty of structural damage while they’re at it. Skunks, raccoons, and other critters that love making their dens in attics will damage the insulation and structural beams in the space. As we mentioned earlier, they are also known to cause extensive damage to electrical wiring as well. Though quite unpleasant, built-up urine and droppings can be so extensive that they start to permeate drywall, causing visible stains in your living areas.
