Our Wildlife Control Services
The different species of animals that live in the Elfers area also means that wildlife challenges can occur in different ways. Rodents could build a nest, a snake could come into your yard or house, birds could cause an unsightly mess at your storefront, and more.
To respond to the variety of wildlife that invades, Nextgen Pest Solutions has a range of service options that make it possible for us to protect your family or business and give you peace of mind.
Live Animal Removal
When an animal comes into your home, the first step in wildlife control is to safely remove it. We use professional traps to capture animals in accordance with the relevant risks and any applicable regulations while also keeping them alive. Removed animals can be returned to a natural habitat so they can continue benefiting the environment.
If an animal is causing an immediate threat, our emergency removal services are available 24/7. This way you can have an animal removed whenever needed, day or night.
Bat and Nuisance Wildlife Exclusion
Another service is called exclusion, which uses techniques to keep animals out. In the exclusion process, we close off any areas that wildlife can use to access your home. This can include:
- Gaps in Fascia and Eaves
- Chimneys and Vents
- Cracks in the Foundation
- Loose Plumbing or Window Fixtures
We start by removing any pests currently inside. This can include trapping and extermination. For bats, we use one way screens that allow them to leave, but prevent them from coming back. When animals are gone, we use construction grade materials to seal up entry points.
Mice and rats are some of the most frequent wildlife invaders. Their small size makes it possible for them to squeeze in through cracks in siding or a foundation. They also have an increasing dependence on people and homes as an easily accessible food source.
The traps we use for rodents work quickly, preventing them from continuing to increase their numbers before they can be eliminated. They are also humane traps, meaning they do not use slow acting poisons or other extermination methods that cause unnecessary pain.
Bird Deterrent Installation
Several factors make excessive numbers of birds around your property undesirable. Yet the presence of people, often dropping food, and warm spaces to hide makes many businesses a prime nesting spot for birds. This can lead to:
- Droppings – Bird droppings are both unattractive and corrosive. When left, they can damage paint, metal, wood, and other materials.
- Aggressive Birds – As birds become more comfortable around people in highly trafficked areas, as well as learn to rely on them for food, they can become aggressive.
- Spread of Disease – Birds can spread avian influenza, salmonella, and E. coli to humans through droppings.
- Fire Danger – Warm areas, like those near electrical boxes and inside lights, are favored places for birds to nest. The combination of electricity and flammable nests is a potential fire risk.
The best and safest method of dealing with birds is through deterrents that keep birds away. We can install spikes, slanted ledges, and visual deterrents around your property, whether it is a business or private home, to prevent birds from landing there.
Call Us for Wildlife Challenges
Animals play several important roles in the environment. For instance, they can serve as a food source for many people, such as with the range of fish from The Fish Guy. They can also manage populations of insects and other animals, as birds, bats, and opossums do, and provide sustenance for predators.
These roles are best served when animals live out of doors. Inside our homes or a business, animals develop a growing dependence on people while putting them in danger. Nextgen Pest Solutions provides wildlife control that operates with the safety of both people and animals in mind. If you have an animal inside your home or want to prevent future invasions, start by calling us.
