Wildlife Control

They're Noisy. Destructive. They Carry Disease. And they've just moved into your house!


Often an integrated approach to wildlife management is necessary to achieve optimal results. As with pest control, there are several types of controls that can be applied to achieve success. Trapping or shooting may work well under some conditions, but they may not be optimal solutions under other circumstances. Sometimes trapping or shooting that (or any) animal may prohibited by federal, state, or local laws. It can also cause social issues for a business or homeowner, as many people have strong feelings about killing animals. Lastly, it just may not work as a permanent solution. Other control methods must be used, often in conjunction with each other.

These methods include:

  • Cultural Control – Identify and change the practices that cause conditions that are conducive to or attractive to wildlife, such as making sure your staff closes the dumpster at night, or ceasing feeding stray cats (or at least letting the food sit over overnight).
  • Physical Control – Physically remove conducive conditions or wildlife themselves, such as using a rifle or pellet gun to get rid of an animal directly (like a rabid raccoon), netting a bird or other wildlife in a house, or trimming a tree branch to prevent access to the building.
  • Mechanical Control – Use tools, non-chemical materials, or devices to remove pests or conducive conditions, such as using traps, sealing entry points, installing barriers like fencing, or using deterrents.
  • Biological Control – Use predators to control wildlife, such as releasing hawks or falcons to control pigeons in urban environments.
  • Chemical Control – Use chemical substances to control or remove wildlife, such as using liquid or granular repellants to deter wildlife.
We at Adam's Pest Solutions employ all methods of control to manage our clients' wildlife issues. Whenever necessary, we will clean and sanitize soiled areas, as well as safely cart away contaminated material that cannot be cleaned and sanitized. We can also handle secondary parasitic infestations brought by the invading animal like fleas, ticks, mites, etc.

We have an appreciation for life and believe that all Gods creatures have a right to be here. We strive to capture and remove all wildlife in the most humane and safest manner possible.


Here is a brief list of some of the some of the common wildlife we control:


Squirrels

Squirrels are inarguably the #1 nuisance wild animal we deal with in terms of the number of calls we receive. They tend to be very destructive. While they are opportunists and will enter into attics through gaps due to faulty or damaged construction, they will also chew opening in corners or edges of the soffits, fascia, or the roof. Once they enter they often chew wires, cables, HVAC lines, and other items in the attic. They can short out equipment or wires, causing permanent damage or fire. They can destroy insulation baffling and other items while playing and frolicking in the attic.



There are two types of squirrels commonly found in attics in North Carolina: tree squirrels and flying squirrels. They have different habits and physical appearances, and each may require a different approach when it comes to trapping and removal.

Usually there are contributing factors when it comes squirrel problems that, if left unaddressed, can lead to ongoing issues with squirrels. So, having an expert who can identify these factors and help address them can save hundreds or thousands of dollars in future removal and repairs.





Bats

Problems with bats fall into two categories: Accidental Entry and Infiltration.

Accidental Entry happens when one or more bats enter a dwelling through an open door or window and get trapped inside. We recommend that you call a qualified professional when dealing with bats, since there are risks in trying to remove these bats on your own. Bats are a vector for rabies, and amateurs can wind up getting bitten while trying to remove them on their own. If you are ever bitten by a bat or if the bat has been in a room where any of the occupants had slept, never release it. You can receive a bite while sleeping and never realize it. In either circumstance, the bat must be tested for rabies. If it is not available for testing, then a preventative rabies protocol needs to be followed, which includes vaccinations.

Bats will often infiltrate structures and live inside. This can be a temporary, intermittent, or permanent situation. Then usually enter through gaps, attic vents or damaged area of the attic. Their fecal material (called guano) can carry parasites and disease, and it often grows the fungus histoplasma capsulatum. The spores of this fungus can cause a serious disease called histoplasmosis if inhaled.

Bats that infiltrate a dwelling can also bring bat bugs. Bat bugs are the relative of the bed bug. Though their primary hosts are bats, in the absence of their primary host or if there not enough bats to feed their numbers, they can begin migrating to other areas. If they manage to enter the living space, they will act just like bed bugs and may feed on the humans present.
Bats

Remediation usually consists of getting rid of the bats, removing the guano and any contaminated materials, sanitizing the area, and sealing the entry points. If bat bugs are present, then treating the area with a residual insecticide labeled for bat bugs or bed bugs would be necessary. Never try removing bats or bat guano without the proper protective gear.

It is important that you choose a professional that knows how to safely perform bat remediations. Whether you are dealing with a single bat that accidentally wandered inside or an entire colony's infiltration, we at Adam's Pest Solutions have the knowledge and experience to do the job safely and effectively.




Raccoons

Raccoons can invade attics or crawlspaces, can attack livestock like chickens or koi in koi ponds, can destroy personal property and are vectors for rabies. Their feces contain parasites and diseases that can be contracted by touch or via inhalation, such as roundworm, Giardia, and Leptospirosis to name a few. Remediation usually consists of trapping and removal of the raccoon or raccoons, sealing up the entry point, cleaning up the feces and soiled materials, and sanitizing the affected areas.
We at Adam's Pest Solutions know how to safely handle raccoon remediation on all levels from the trapping and removal to the cleanup.





Opossums

Like raccoons, opossums can enter attics and crawlspaces and contaminate those areas with their feces and urine, but in general, they tend not to cause the physical damage raccoons do. Opossums can carry diseases such as Leptospirosis, tuberculosis, relapsing fever, tularemia, spotted fever, toxoplasmosis, coccidiosis, trichomoniasis, and Chagas disease. They may also be infested with ectoparasites like fleas, ticks, mites, and/or lice. Cleanup and sanitization as well as treating with an insecticide should be part of the removal process and exclusion process.

Snakes – Copperhead

Copperhead snake
Most snakes are harmless and prey upon rodents, insects, and other pests, making them beneficial to have around. When snakes do become a problem or when dealing with venomous snakes, understanding how to effectively control them is vital. Eliminating their food sources, harborages, and conducive conditions is often the key to success. When that is not possible or practical, trapping and/or excluding them is the best course of action.






Geese

Geese can often be an issue in residential and commercial settings. Their droppings attract flies, can carry parasites and disease, and can limit the use of the yard or grounds. They are protected by federal law, which restricts the methods that can be implemented in combating them. However, there are products and techniques that can be legally employed to keep the geese away from your property.

Deer

Deer

Deer can devastate plants, crops, gardens and fruit trees. They are carriers of fleas, mites, lice, and ticks which can spread Lyme disease. These ectoparasites are often deposited in areas they frequent which in turn can be picked up by domestic animals and people. Their feces can spread a number of internal parasites and diseases. The best methods for preventing the damage they cause and limiting contact with the parasites and pathogens they carry are the use of permanent or temporary exclusion devices.

Birds

Bird problems tend to fall into one of four categories: intrusion, nesting transgression, destructive behavior, and fecal damage and contamination.

Intrusion occurs when a bird flies into a house, building, or structure and is unable or unwilling to leave. Herding them out or physical removal is often the solution.

Nesting transgression is when birds nest in inappropriate areas, often obstructing the normal function or aesthetics of a device, mechanism, or construct. This could be a bird nesting in a chimney, in ductwork, in or behind recessed lights, on the exterior of a building, on statues, on monuments, or anyplace that causes problems or issues. Remediation methods vary, but usually include physical removal of the nests and exclusion.
