Wildlife Control & Removal

Q&A with Local Franchisee Zane Neher

What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in Augusta?
The biggest issues you will face from wildlife is the damage they tend to do to your home. They will chew on shingles causing leaks. They will chew on fascia boards, freeze boards and vents causing rot and unsightly appearances. When they are inside the attic or under home, they will chew on wires, ducting and personal belongings, as well as bring in parasites, viruses and other illnesses into your home – not to mention other wildlife, including predators.

How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?
Spring/Fall: This time of year is when wildlife tend to start breeding. For species like squirrels, this means that they breed twice a year with a litter of 3-6 babies each time, this greatly increases the chances of severe damage to your home as babies will stay a long while after they are weaned and the mothers will continue to use the attic until they are removed.

Summer/Winter: Attics and crawl spaces provide amazing cover for wildlife during these times of year. Both areas provide warmth during the winter and coolness during the summer. We may be hot in the attic or uncomfortable in the crawl space, but wildlife thrive in these areas, because of the insulation. If your home is 67 degrees during the summer, the attic under the insulation won’t be much different.

What are some common signs of nuisance wildlife activity?
Random noises. Odd smells. Unexplained staining in ceiling and walls. Dark “wet spots” on roofs and areas that look like paint was removed from home. Holes going under home and trees as well as digging in the yard are all common signs of wildlife activity.

Any prevention or exclusion tips for local residents in your area?
​Wildlife are a part of our habitat. To help keep them wild, do not feed them. Make sure to catch or clean up seeds after feeding the birds each day. Pick up your pets’ food after each feeding. Keep yard clean of debris.
Cats, dogs, mothballs, vinegar and lime do not deter wildlife.
