Gulf Stream Rodent Removal All animals play an important role in the ecosystem, but there need to be healthy boundaries in place between humans and animals. Rodents who wander too close to commercial or residential properties, or take up residence in buildings pose a risk both to themselves and to humans. Rodents are well known to be unsanitary, and bring both bacteria and physical damage to properties all over the Gulf Stream area. Over the past 30 years, Critter Control® has created a reputation as one of the finest rodent and nuisance animal removal companies in the country, and we want to help keep your property rodent-free into the future. Do You Have Rodents? Some telltale signs of rodent activity include: Evidence of nesting – Homes and office buildings provide the perfect protection from predators and the elements, so chances are they will build a nest at the first opportunity. They are typically found in out-of-the-way areas like attics or basements, and are constructed out of paper, cardboard, insulation, or other readily available material. Droppings – Many rodents constantly eat and chew on things to keep their ever-growing teeth trimmed to length, so they create a lot of waste for their size. It’s common to find rodent droppings if they’re living on your property, so be on the lookout for black pellets that are about ¼” long. You’ll often see it along baseboards, as rodents hug the walls when they’re out in the open. Bite marks – Keep your eye on any exposed wood in your house, electrical wiring in your attic, and even food containers in your kitchen, as these are common targets for rodent activity. Let Us Help When facing a rodent infestation on your property, you should act as quickly as possible to avoid further damage. The technicians here at Critter Control® of West Palm Beach can safely remove any rodents and return your home to normal in no time.

Gulf Stream Squirrel Removal Nobody wants critters invading their home, but some are worse than others. You might think squirrels would be fairly harmless, but it's still important to remove them right away to prevent potentially expensive damage. Here's what you need to know about our squirrel removal services in the Gulf Stream area. What's the Problem? For some, having a small squirrel infestation doesn't sound like a big deal. The truth is, it's important to remove any animal from your home as soon as you possibly can. Animals can carry diseases that are communicable to humans, whether it's through a bite or indirect contact. If a squirrel or other rodent gets into the food in your pantry, you could pick something up when you eat that food. Beyond the communicable diseases carried by Gulf Stream squirrels, they can also cause a lot of damage to your home. Squirrels need a place to sleep, food, and a place to go to the bathroom, all of which can spell bad news for your home. The last thing you want is a family of squirrels tearing up your attic and using it as a bathroom without your knowledge. The Signs It's important to know the signs of a squirrel invasion so you can make sure you don't have critters in your home. If you hear sounds coming from your attic or notice a spot where it looks like something got in, you should give somebody a call to come take a look. You may also notice damage to insulation and other parts of your home. The Solution Having squirrels in your Gulf Stream home is more than just an annoyance, it's a danger to you and your home. That's why it's important to have squirrels found and removed from your home as quickly as possible. The pros at Critter Control® of West Palm Beach have the knowledge and tools to safely and effectively remove squirrels from your home. If you think you might have a squirrel infestation, give us a call at 561-804-9500 today. Gulf Stream Rat Removal Over the years, we’ve built a reputation as the premier wildlife management solution in West Palm Beach, including the Gulf Stream area. This reputation is thanks in large part to our humane yet highly effective rat removal services. Our technicians are able to quickly get rid of any rats on your residential or commercial properties, while also taking measures to prevent their return in the future – all while keeping your family safe from the unsanitary nature of rats. Not only are our methods environmentally friendly and fast-acting, they are as permanent as possible. Rat Traits Though they aren’t typically aggressive towards humans, rats still pose a problem for Gulf Stream residents. These critters love gnawing on important wooden structural components, electrical systems, and even roofing to keep their constantly-growing teeth healthy. They also commonly take up residence inside the attics of commercial and residential buildings, creating nests, and ruining insulation. These behaviors, combined with rats being highly unsanitary, make for a good reason to call on a professional to handle their removal. Do You Have Rats? If any of the following apply to you, you may have rats in or around your home or office: A smell of urine or feces emanating from the walls or ceiling Signs of chewing or biting on walls, cabinets, furniture, or food containers Scraps of paper, cardboard, or foliage inside your home or office Squeaking, scratching, or thumping noises in your walls or ceiling If you think rats have moved in, consider calling the specialists here at Critter Control® of West Palm Beach for a home estimate.

Gulf Stream Mice Removal You might be able to find them for sale in some pet stores, but mice are not something you want running around your Gulf Stream property. Not only are they known carriers of different types of bacteria and viruses, they eat everything sight – including things like cardboard, wood, and even metal. If that isn’t bad enough, their droppings can leave a foul odor throughout your home that requires professional help to eliminate. To avoid all of this, we recommend our mice removal services at the first sign of activity. Why Do Mice Love Houses? Mice, like many other small animals, are scavengers by nature. They are always on the hunt for food, water, shelter, or a place to build a nest. Your Gulf Stream home provides all of that in one convenient package, and once mice figure that out, they want nothing more than to move in and never leave. Mouse Behavior A mouse can birth up to two thousand babies in a single year, which can turn a small infestation into an out-of-control crisis before you know it. Mice are nocturnal creatures, so if you ever see one scurrying around your property during the day, you can almost bet you’ve got an infestation on your hands. When space becomes cramped and competition for food is fiercer, they will go out during the day. Let Us Help If you’ve noticed any signs of mouse activity on your property like squeaking coming from the ceiling or walls, bite marks on your food containers, or the foul stench of mouse waste, don’t sweat it. Our mice removal services are the premier option in the Gulf Stream area, and we can have your home back to normal in no time. Call us today at 561-804-9500 to schedule your complimentary consultation.
