Raccoons, Squirrels, and Opossums Humanely Removed
Animals like raccoons, squirrels, and opossums can cause extensive damage to your property. In addition, these animals may also carry diseases, parasites, and create an unsanitary environment that attracts other pests to your home or business. Metro Pest Control employs a team of animal trappers that are experts in humane wildlife removal. We use a three-step process in our animal removal service.
We begin by inspecting your entire structure, identifying potential ports of entry that need to be sealed. Our experienced team of animal removal specialists are experts at identifying animals even before visual contact and understanding their habits. Humane traps are strategically placed to expedite the trapping process. For the next several days, the traps are checked until the animals are successfully removed.
Raccoon Removal In The Bronx
Raccoons are nocturnal animals (mostly active at night) that will eat almost anything, including garbage, shellfish, nuts, plants, and other animals. They are very smart and build nests in secluded areas like attics, crawl spaces, and under decks. Raccoons can be aggressive and may carry rabies, fleas, ticks, and other parasites. They are easily identified by their black facial mask and can grow to over 2 feet in length.
Squirrel Removal In The Bronx
Squirrels are incredibly gifted climbers and have acrobatic skills that make them experts at gaining access to their desired structure, be it your home or commercial property. They are mostly active during the daytime and can be very destructive, often gnawing through wooden beams and wiring. When nesting in your home, squirrels can create an unsanitary environment that will attract other pests as well. In addition, squirrels may carry diseases like Lyme disease, leptospirosis, tularemia, and rabies.
Squirrels are also very determined in their efforts to nest and escape from the cold by entering your attic or building.
Opossum Removal In The Bronx
Opossums are very slow-moving marsupials. Nocturnal creatures, opossums will take shelter almost anywhere, including garbage cans, under porches, attics, and more. They will eat garbage, fruits, fish, insects, worms, grubs, and grains. Opossums could win an academy award for playing dead when threatened, an adaptation to compensate for their lack of speed. They have a pointed snout, a long pointed tail, and can reach 15 to 20 inches in length. Opossums possess razor-sharp teeth that can deliver a painful bite that would require an immediate trip to the doctor, as they can be hosts to many diseases, including rabies.
