Frequently Asked Questions About Animal Removal and Control

Wild animals are all around us in Indiana. We are certainly lucky to have such a thriving and abundant wildlife population in our state, especially since we are not home to vast luscious forests and large bodies of water. Although we appreciate our surrounding wildlife, it is important to keep them at a safe distance, otherwise they might turn into a nuisance, which in turn costs you money and even poses certain hazards.

If you live on or near a property with trees and water, you are at an even higher risk of nuisance animal interference. For homes with pets and young children, this is something to cause concern. Fortunately, there are several safe and humane methods for protecting your property from animal exposure and damage, as well as, removing infestation from inside your home or structure.

To begin your learning curve of animal removal and control, continue reading to review some frequently asked questions and answers professional trappers get from their clients.

What is Animal Removal and Control Service?

Animal removal refers to the physical extraction of an animal or infestation inside a house, building, or other structure (i.e. barn, shed, garage, etc.). In order to achieve this task safely and humanely, and without using lethal methods, licensed trappers will use a combination of exclusion science and traps to remove or get rid of an animal.

Animal control refers to the task of reducing, managing, preventing, or thwarting nuisance animal activity. This is often achieved with exclusion sciences and techniques, as well as, environmental modification and monitoring, on-site technologies, and more.

What are the Most Common Nuisance Animals in Indiana?

The most common types of nuisance wildlife here in Indiana include bats, raccoons, squirrels, muskrats, moles, birds, chipmunks, opossum, skunks, beavers, groundhogs (woodchucks), voles, coyotes, foxes, snakes, and rabbits. Other types of nuisance animals that animal control professionals do not work with include stray cats and dogs, and waterfowl like ducks and geese.

What are the Signs of an Animal Infestation?

The signs of an animal infestation will vary depending on the location of the infestation and the type of animal. Bats are often discovered when their guano is found sitting on the ledges of windowsills and door frames. Hearing strange sounds coming from the walls, ceiling, or chimney is another common indicator of an animal infestation. Additional signs include strange or lingering odors, torn insulation, scratches or physical signs of damage, stains on walls or ceilings, rotting food debris, and pest outbreaks (i.e. lice, mites, ants, fleas, gnats, flies, etc.).

What Risk to Wild Animals Pose to My Property?

Animals that are not welcome on your property can cause a lot of damage if they find access. Not only can some nuisance wildlife tear up lawns and gardens in search of grubs, others will tear up garbage, rip open window screens, tear off roof shingles and siding, defecate all over patios and other structures, and much more. The potential for animal damage is exponential; the longer you have an infestation or issue, the more damages will add up. Not all damages are covered by homeowners’ insurance, so be sure to always act fast and stop a nuisance animal problem as soon as possible.

Do Wild Animals Spread Disease?

Yes, animals are common carriers of all sorts of transmissible diseases. Some of the most common include lice, mites, ticks, and fleas. However, wild animals can carry and pass on several serious diseases as well, such as Rabies, Distemper, Parvo, Leptospirosis, roundworm, and more. If you have wild animals near your property, be sure your curious pets are properly vaccinated at all times. Some diseases, like Rabies, are 100% fatal if contracted.

What Do I Do if I Find a Dead or Abandoned Animal on My Property?

If you find a dead, orphaned, or injured animal on your property, never attempt to touch it or keep it as a pet under any circumstances. Not only would it be incredibly inhumane and illegal, as mentioned, animals carry diseases that can spread to both people and pets. You do not want to expose your family or pets to such dangers. Instead, as soon as you find the animal, block it off from pets and people. Place a fence or gate around it, or mark its location with cones or some other indicator.

Once the animal is segregated, wait a day or two. In most cases of baby animals, the mother is just off looking for food or shelter, and will be back soon. If the animal is blatantly injured, or still there after a day or two, you can try to move it yourself. Use a shoebox to cover it up, and then slide a sturdy piece of paper (like a folder) underneath to trap the animal inside. Then move the animal to a faraway woodland location where nature can take its course. The best thing to do is contact a local Indianapolis wildlife removal company for professional and humane service.

How Can I Keep Nuisance Animals Off My Property?

The best way to keep nuisance animals away from your property is to get rid of, or restrict access to, all sources of food, water, and shelter. These three things are what animals are after when they come to your property. If you do not have food, water, or access to safe shelter for them, they will simply look elsewhere. If you cannot fully eliminate these items from your property, talk to a professional Indiana wildlife control company for help with specialized techniques and approaches that will help abate nuisance animal damage and dangers.
