What animals carry diseases?

Among the most problematic ones that are often encountered in residential and commercial properties that you should get rid of immediately are ratsraccoonsbats, and squirrels. Visit our animal facts page to further educate yourself on disease-carrying critters. Furthermore, many critters may seem harmless but wouldn’t think twice about attacking when they feel threatened. So, make sure that you’re getting expert assistance for any of your animal removal needs.

What kind of damage can a critter cause?

Chewed wires (fire hazard), damage and contaminated insulation, torn or chewed AC ducts, diseases carried by animals, and health and safety hazards to the homeowner. We’ve seen many animals like rats damaging vents, pipes, attic insulation, and many other home features. This is why you need to call for wildlife removal service as soon as you suspect a critter especially indoors as they can cause expensive damage to your home.

Are some invasive critters more dangerous than others?

Some critters are more physically threatening and dangerous, while others pose a great risk for disease. As such, all invading critters and animals should be treated with equal caution! A bat’s bite is not a great physical concern, but bats carry the deadly rabies virus so must be treated with extreme caution (as an example). There’s always the chance of encountering a venomous snake in your house or rats that carry many viruses.

How much does an animal removal job cost?

The cost for animal removal varies depending on several factors such as the location of the critter, its condition, its size, the kind of critter that has to be captured and removed, and more. Additional fees may also be charged when you request for animal damage repairattic sanitation, and entry point sealing.

I didn’t see a critter, but I heard noises. Should I call you?

Some critters are very good at hiding themselves so they can be within your property, even indoors, without you seeing them at all. When hear possible critter noises, get in touch with us so we can schedule an inspection.

Are there any DIY ways to remove an animal from my property?

DIY traps and other capture methods are readily available on the market. The risks of DIY wildlife removal can result in injury to yourself or the animal and possible property damage. It is highly recommended to call experts in wildlife removal for the sake of your safety. Furthermore, DIY traps do not offer permanent solutions to critter problems. When you call Animal Wildlife Trappers, we will do our best to find out the source of your problem, where the critter could have entered, and if there are any more of them in your property.

Do you remove dead animals?

Yes. Animal Wildlife Trappers offers dead animal removal services. At times, you may suspect a dead animal trapped behind a wall or over the ceiling. Over time, this may create a very foul smell that can spread all over your home. It is also possible for bacteria and mold to start forming. Don’t wait ‘til it’s too late – call us right away at 352-267-0546 when you spot a dead animal on your property. 

Should I just wait for the critters to leave?

Some wild animals immediately leave when they know that humans have already seen their hiding place. Raccoons and squirrels would easily move to another area when you shoo them away. However, there’s also that chance for them to come back. And if they don’t leave, perhaps they may have found the perfect shelter within your property. Waiting for them to leave may increase the chance of them to reproduce, which can lead to massive critter invasion. Furthermore, having wild animals around can be very dangerous for you, your kids, and your pets!

Will you come immediately when I need an emergency animal removal service?

Yes. We understand that in some cases, our customers cannot wait for animal removal help to come. For this reason, we offer emergency animal removal that’s also available after hours. Just call us at 352-267-0546 so we can have one of our expert staff assist you.

After removing an animal, will they come back?

At Animal Wildlife Trappers, we strive to look for the entry point of critters and we recommend sealing these entry points for our customers. The critter we will be removing from your property will be brought to another safe location so that they wouldn’t come back to your property anymore. However, if you do not take action in sealing entry points, then another critter can enter your home.
