Delray Beach Rodent Removal Rodents and the Dangers they Pose No one welcomes rodents in their living and working spaces. Mice, rats, and squirrels spread diseases through their urine, droppings and even bites and scratches. They carry viruses, bacteria, and parasites, damage your home and vegetation and create safety hazards. They spend time in your pantry, kitchen and dining areas where you store your family's food, presenting numerous health and sanitation hazards. Many people also suffer from allergies due to their dander and droppings. Eliminate these problems with the services of an established and reputable rodent removal specialist, like Critter Control® of West Palm Beach. Rodent Control & Wildlife Removal Professionals Our specialists are familiar with area wildlife, their habits and how to locate, trap and remove them. While rodents share many similar traits, their behavior differs, and intimate knowledge of each species is instrumental in applying the most effective removal measures. Our specialists concentrate on control measures that address the entire rodent population on your property. This differs from the method most property owners use when they try to deal with a rodent infestation on their own, trying to trap or kill each rodent individually. Instead, we use integrated lethal and non-lethal approaches tailored to the individual property owner's rodent situation. Preventative Measures Once our technicians establish that you have a rodent problem, we take steps to ensure that the problem doesn't get any worse and to prevent future infestations. Our specialists perform a complete inspection of your property, paying particular attention to areas that are commonly vulnerable. This includes some of the following: Vent covers Chimney pipes Roofing Decks Piping Stone and brick foundations We take measures to seal or close off any access areas, cracks, gaps, holes, and other openings. It's important to be very thorough, as rodents can enter your home through very tiny holes, as small as 1 to 2 inches in diameter. Our technicians are skilled at locating and identifying these vulnerabilities.

Delray Beach Squirrel Removal Squirrel infestations typically begin in your yard and could eventually extend into your home. A squirrel family's favorite room is the attic, where they use insulation for nesting material and chew on wiring and wood to keep their teeth short and sharp. These cute but always unwanted house guests gain entrance into your home by finding small holes and cracks leading from the outside of your home to the inside. Like other rodents, squirrels are wily creatures that can squeeze their furry bodies through openings three times smaller than their bodies. If you see squirrels racing up and down trees in your yard and have never checked your home's exterior for inconspicuous cracks, chances are you may have squirrels in the attic. How is Squirrel Removal Performed? The technicians here at Critter Control® of West Palm Beach remove squirrels from buildings using humane trapping methods that safely capture squirrels. After trapping squirrels, we take them to a wooded area where we release them into the wild. Removing squirrels from your property may take more than a few days, especially if you don't take action and contact Critter Control® as soon as you find squirrels nesting in your attic or overpopulating your property. They breed quickly and are hardy rodents. As non-stop chewers and voracious consumers of anything edible, two or three families of squirrels can wreak total havoc on your home's interior, exterior, and yard. Once we have eliminated your squirrel infestation, we will put effective preventive measures in place so that your property is protected from future squirrel invasions. Placing mesh screen over vents and chimneys, sealing exterior openings into your home and trimming tree branches overhanging roofs are just a few things we can do to keep squirrels from re-infesting homes and commercial buildings. Contact the Professionals Critter Control® of West Palm Beach strongly advises against trying to trap squirrels by yourself. Like other rodents, squirrels carry diseases, parasites and may attack and bite you if cornered.

Delray Beach Rat Removal Do you hear scratching or scuttling noises at night and find dark brown tapered droppings in or around your Delray Beach home? You may have a rat infestation problem. Other signs to check for include dirty and greasy smudges along your walls and baseboards, holes, shredded insulation and other materials, and even tail marks and footprints. Common areas to search for signs of rats are in your garage, shed or compost bin. You may also find holes in your garden and signs of gnawing on your deck. If you actually spot a rat - dead or alive - your problem has likely advanced to a full-blown infestation. These animals are typically very secretive and prefer to stay hidden from human eyes. Only when space becomes an issue, usually due to too many rats in one area, do they venture out in the open. If you see this or any other signs of the presence of rats, it's time to call in the experts. Rat Control and Removal Professionals If you suspect a rat infestation, you may be tempted to take care of the problem yourself with traps. But this is not the best way to deal with the infestation and will likely be ineffective. Most rats are cautious around unfamiliar objects and will avoid traps. Meanwhile, more time is passing, their population is growing, and your problem is getting worse. Perhaps you've considered poison. It will kill them, but then you have a brand-new unpleasant issue - dead rats decaying throughout your property, smelling and attracting insects and other pests. Additionally, poison is bad for other wildlife and the environment, in general. The most effective way to deal with a rat infestation is through rat population control. This is what our professional technicians excel at. We use non-lethal tools to identify and remove the rats, based on proven and effective methods of rodent control. If the problem is extreme, we may use rodenticides combined with snap traps and glue boards to get rid of the rats quickly and eliminate the chance for them to continue procreating. We also use exclusion methods to effect long-term solutions. By locating and sealing access points in your home, we can prevent future infestations. Our technicians have the proper training to skillfully use all these methods as needed. Let Us Help Let us help you with your rat infestation. Call us today at 561-274-0224. Delray Beach Mice Removal If you see little droppings around your food stores, smell a musty odor or hear rustling and scratching when there should be no noise, it could be mice. These nasty, little rodents are the unwelcome houseguests that won't go away and keep bringing in more relatives - until you call in a professional. Mouse Hazards From the destruction of your wiring and insulation and the waste of your food stuffs to the many potential health hazards and the transmission of disease, a mouse infestation presents many hazards. Mice gnaw on flooring, siding, wood, and insulation, damaging your home and creating safety hazards. They can cause electrical issues, fire hazards and trip and fall dangers. Parasites, viruses, bacteria and a myriad of diseases accompany mice populations, and an infestation exposes you, your family members and your pets to these dangers. At the first sign of a mouse problem, the smart thing to do is call in the experts. Critter Control Removes Mice from Your Property Effectively Mice procreate quickly, so time is of the essence.
