Do you have a problem with uninvited guests? Who doesn’t, especially if they are raccoons, bats, possums, snakes, or other wild animals nesting in your home?
Well, there’s always a way of sending them away. However, what you shouldn’t do, is try to take charge of the situation yourself.
While you may want to protect your home by getting rid of these critters, you may end up worsening the situation.
Here are some of the most common mistakes we’ve seen homeowners make while trying to get rid of unwanted critters.
- Sealing all entry points without prior inspection
Sure, sealing any entry/exit points is an efficient way to eliminate the critters in your deck or attic, but you may be doing more harm than good. Here’s why:
- You may end up trapping some baby critters inside
You may also seal off the entry points, leaving the critters inside, which means they may die. So, you will end up with a bad smell all over your home. Plus, it’s much difficult to remove dead animals, especially those that have begun to decompose.
- You will also be sealing a mess, that is, their droppings, urine, and their nests. If these places are not cleaned, you may be putting your health at risk.
- Trying to trap the animal
Without knowing how to trap an animal, we suggest you don’t do it at all. If you do so, you’re letting yourself vulnerable to being attacked, or you may end up killing the animal. And both situations shouldn’t be the end situation.
- Trying to relocate the animal
You may successfully trap the animal, and your next option is to relocate it somewhere else. What you do not know is; You’re probably separating the animal from its family, which of course, is putting it under stress.
So, what should you do to avoid these mistakes?
