Highly-Trained Wildlife Experts After scheduling an appointment with our office, you will be given a 2-hour arrival window for one of our uniformed field service managers. He will arrive on time in a marked vehicle and will conduct a complete and thorough inspection of your home. He will diagnose the type of animal intrusion as well as evaluate entry points and develop an action plan to address the existing problem and prevent future ones. Expert Guidance You will be provided with a written inspection report or Animal Entry Worksheet (AEW). Our field service manager will break everything down step-by-step and clearly explain the animal removal and entry point repair process. You will know exactly what is needed for your services and why. Control Maintenance If trapping of animals such as squirrels, skunks, or raccoons is required, we will return every day to check the traps and remove any animals caught. In most cases, we set the traps at a point of entry on the outside of your home, so you do not have to be home for any return visits we make. Status Updates We will leave a daily status notice to keep you up to date on how many animals we removed and the status of the job. We will carefully monitor the entry points for activity and we will not seal the entry point until we are 100% certain there are no more animals entering your home. Smart Removal For mice we usually set between 20 – 30 snap traps. We do not use any poison and prefer traps to poison for the safety of children and pets. Traps also greatly reduce the chance an animal will die in the walls and create a foul smell. Traps are set where the mice are most active. This includes basements, attics, accessible crawl spaces, kitchen areas, and any other area where there is evidence of activity. We take into strong consideration children and pets when deciding on locations for trap placement. We will identify possible points of entry and recommend exclusion repairs on our inspection report (AEW) that would help to keep more mice from entering your home.
