Protecting Your Home Against Nuisance Wildlife
The change of seasons in many areas brings with it cooler temperatures, increased precipitation, rodents and nuisance wildlife seeking refuge. They can end up finding shelter in your home if there are access points that make it easy for them to find their way in. If sharing your home with various wild animals is not appealing to you, then now is the time to begin taking steps to ensure that the only ones staying warm and dry in your home this winter is your family. When we speak of rodents we are also including animal exclusion in that statement.
Rodents and other unwanted pests in your home are more than just annoying. They can wreak havoc, damaging your property and even posing significant health risks.
Rodents like rats and squirrels can gnaw through wires which can cause fires, destroying insulation. They can also carry diseases like hantavirus and salmonella. Rodents that invade your home can also introduce infestations into your homes such as mites, fleas, or ticks, not to mention the rodent droppings and urine stains and smells associated with them both.
Finding the right company to perform your rodent / wildlife exclusion service can be difficult. All companies claim to have the knowledge expertise to remove unwanted animals. But you want to do your on research on the company, confirm they are licensed, insured and check the ratings and reviews. There are tons of animal and wildlife companies out there that do not have registration numbers on their vehicles, which should be the first sign that no one is monitoring their services, licenses and quality control.
Animal exclusion is an art that is based in science, the science behind the animals behaviors and habits. A certified, experienced pest professional will also have more knowledge about populations, indicators and entry points, as well as the most up to date products on the market. Rules and regulations apply to animal removal, and also transportation.
A good plan of action to protect your home involves securing it inside and out. Take these steps to keep your home free of unwanted pests.
Keep areas that are normally damp, like crawl spaces, attics, and basements, dry and well ventilated. Many types of pests are drawn to moist environments.
Keep your gutters clean, well maintained, and working properly.
Find all cracks and crevices both inside and outside of your home. Seal them with caulk so pests can’t get through. Look closely at areas where pipes enter your home and seal even the tiniest of spaces. Mice are great jumpers and can squeeze through impossibly tiny openings. They can fit through a dime-sized hole so seal them all.
Place screens over chimney openings, attic vents, and other areas in your home that provide open access to the outdoors.
Keep plants, ivy, and grasses that may be against your home well weeded and sparse. Do the same for shrubbery and trees. Heavy foliage that is near your home provides a hiding place for pests, giving them plenty of covers to search for access to your home.
Any loose weather stripping or loose mortar should be replaced as soon as possible.

Tampa Bay, FL
Feral cats are a problem in many areas. As laws are getting tougher on animals being allowed to run free and prohibiting people from feeding wild animals, nothing is being done to reduce the feral cat population – until now. Programs are popping up throughout the nation, including this one in Tampa Bay. According to an article in the Tampa Bay Times, animal welfare groups and county commissioners are working together to find a better way to control the feral cat communities in the area. What is being proposed is a program that would trap the cats, sterilize them so they cannot reproduce, vaccinate them, and return them to their colony. It is a humane way of culling the population.
Atlantic City, NJ
Canadian geese are a real problem in several counties in New Jersey. They have become a real nuisance; the local schools, golf clubs, shopping centers, and other areas are overrun with the unwelcome critters.

Geese Chasers South Jersey employs border collies to chase and generally harass the geese until they leave the area in search of a quieter, dog-free spot.
