When various animals such as bats, raccoons, roof rats, or opossums get into your attic, they infect the insulation with urine, feces, shed fur, parasites and dead animals. Unless removed, these disease causing pollutants will remain in your home’s insulation literally forever. These pollutants can also seep into your air ducts thus contaminating the air everyone in the home breathes. These unhealthy conditions can remain long after the animals are gone and could actually attract other animals!
Get Rid of Rats and Mice
Rodents in your home or place of business can do more harm than you realize. A rodent in your home can spread diseases to your house pets and ruin your insulation. And in your place of business, you can be legally liable – at a high cost – for damaged stock, contaminated foods, health code violations, or other consequences.
Get Rid of Raccoons
Raccoons can be one of the most destructive animals that get inside homes. They often gnaw on wood, cables or electrical wiring and almost any stored item. The gnawing of wiring is perhaps the scariest damage they do – stripping the insulation from the wires increases the chances for a short and the risk of fire.
Get Rid of Opossums
There are many good reasons that our clients are irked by the presence of opossums. Whether it’s because of fear of rabies, or because of worries that an opossum could become a nuisance by digging into your trash. They also like to nest in your attic and leave behind urine and feces, which can lead to seriouse health issues.
Get Rid of Bats
Bats can be some of the most destructive and dangerous pests to have in your home. Bats urinate and defecate everywhere they roost, causing staining and odor problems, which are difficult to remove. Bat guano (droppings) is associated with several diseases, which are dangerous to humans such as rabies and histoplasmosis (a lung disease caused by the spores of the fungus which grows on bat guano).
The process of sealing a structure so that animals cannot enter.
Once an animal has been trapped and
removed from your home, performing the exclusion work is the next step to ensure the animal doesn’t return. This process involves extensively checking the entire home for entry points such
as holes, cracks, vents and construction/builder’s gaps and then sealing those areas so that no animals can ever re-enter.
The construction/builder’s gap is a gap intentionally left by the builder between the roof decking and fascia board. To the left is a picture of a typical construction/builder’s gap.
In order to prevent animals from entering through these gaps,
GONE Pest Management uses the highest quality animal wire to seal up each entry point area. This prevents rodents, squirrels, raccoons or any other nuisance animal from chewing into the structure.
It is typical for bats to enter the attic area of a structure through dryer vents, exhaust vents or gable vents. Raccoons enter by chewing holes through the construction/builder’s gap. And rodents are known to get into a structure through cracks in the basement foundations. Many of these animals are looking for a safe place to do their breeding. Once the animal has made its way into the structure, it can cause significant damage to walls, wiring or insulation. Not to mention diseases that can be associated with many of their feces.GONE Pest Management will properly remove the nuisance and seal all entry point areas.
