Raccoons are nocturnal mammals common throughout North America, especially in the wooded eastern regions of the United States. Besides the native northern raccoon, there are six other existing species, most of which live on tropical islands. These clever creatures have nimble hands and are intelligent problem solvers capable of opening latches, turning doorknobs, climbing, swimming, and running at speeds of over 10 miles per hour.
Species that fall into all three groupings have the capacity to cause destruction on lawns and in homes. Some of the more common species that regularly come into contact with humans and manmade structures include fox squirrels, eastern gray squirrels, and red squirrels.
Over 40 bat species exist in the United States alone, and nearly 1,000 different species live around the world. They have a bad reputation and are often thought of as flying rats. Although bats are capable of spreading disease, much like rats, their existence is beneficial to humans and the environment in a way rats are not.
Rats (Rattus spp.) have caused more human suffering and more economic damage than any other vertebrate pest. From causing plague epidemics (the “Black Death” of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind.
Skunks are approximately the size of a house cat, with characteristic black and white fur bearing spots and striping. Their tails are big and bushy, while their legs, head, ears and eyes tend to be small. They favor wooded areas, open fields and lands bordering on forests, but will seek shelter in your home or under your porch or deck.
WELCOME TO CRITTER CONTROL® OF INDIANA
Many wildlife species are hazardous to you, your family, and your home, as well as difficult to remove. When critters invade, it is important to hire a wildlife control company like Critter Control of Indiana. Doing so will ensure a safe and effective removal of unwanted pests, as well as the safety of your home and family.
If you notice animal activity in or around your home, you should take immediate action. Wild animals can be dangerous as well as damaging to your property. They can chew through building structures, electrical wiring, and heating and cooling ducts, which can lead to problems such as fires.
Let the animal removal professionals with Critter Control in South Bend, Elkhart, Fort Wayne, and surrounding areas in Indiana and Michigan give you back your home and peace of mind. Problem animals, such as rats, squirrels, opossums, raccoons, bats, pigeons, snakes and skunks, are most effectively removed by a professional because they carry diseases, like rabies, that can be transmitted to you with one bite. Don’t take that risk.
Critter Control will not only remove unwanted wild animals from your home and property, but we will also follow up to repair any damage caused by wildlife. This service includes capping chimneys, repairing holes or any other entry point created by an animal, and replacing damaged insulation.
If you notice any signs of wildlife in your home or around your property, it is time to take immediate action and call Critter Control to remove the problem.
