How Does the Animal Removal Process Work?


When animals invade your property, they can cause damage and put you and your family at risk of injury. So, if you have seen animal tracks on your property or have heard animals living inside your home, then you need to call an animal removal service. Animal removal services generally remove non-domestic animals like skunks, raccoons, snakes, and opossums.

If you've never hired an animal removal service before, you might wonder how the process works. This article will explain what happens during the animal removal process.

Inspection and identification of the animal

If you have encountered an animal on your property, the first thing an animal removal service will do is ask you for information about the encounter. If, for instance, you have heard scratching and screeching in your attic, inform your animal removal service. They can then inspect the attic for signs of animal activity. Once they have identified the animal, they can then create a plan to trap it.

Trapping and relocation

Animal removal services usually trap live animals, not kill them. Once an animal removal service has trapped an animal, the team will then relocate that animal. In some cases, animal removal professionals take animals to rehabilitation centers, but most of the time, they release animals back into the wild.

During the winter or mating season, an animal removal service will usually choose to release an animal back into its own territory. This is because the animal might have babies to care for. And during winter, some animals can't survive outside their own territory.

Cleaning and repairs

Wild animals often damage properties, especially when they seek to gain entry to a house. And if an animal has lived inside a property for a prolonged length of time, there will likely be feces and urine at the nesting site too. Animal removal services clean up the mess left behind by wild animals. They also repair any damage done by the animal or done during the removal process.

Preventative measures

The final step of an animal removal process should be the preventative measures to ensure other wild animals don't enter your property in the future. For instance, if a possum entered your roof via the chimney, your animal removal service will recommend that you seal your chimney. They may even be able to seal entry points for you.

If you suspect that you have a non-domestic animal living somewhere on your property, consider calling an animal removal service. In most cases, an animal removal service can trap and remove an animal safely, before relocating it somewhere else.
