Pest Problems

We don’t remove pests…we only fix the damage they caused!

The arrival of spring means warmer weather, growing flowers and creatures come out of hiding. Often times those creatures are hiding right in your home.

Animals like making their homes on your roof, in your gutters and some may even burrow in through any access to find where its warm and safe.

COMMON DAMAGES

  • Chewed fascia boards
  • Damaged soffit
  • Torn roof shingles
  • Leaks
  • Nest that block gutters and downspouts
  • Holes or gaps in siding
  • Uncapped or damaged chimney and exhaust vents
  • Ruined insulation
  • Building’s structural integrity compromised
  • Animals are living in your attic

Having a pest problem can go beyond damage to your home. Animals carry bacteria and disease that can affect a home’s air quality and the people that live there.  If an animal is nesting in your home, you can bet they leave behind fecal droppings and shed their fur.

When it comes to the health, comfort, and safety of your family and pets, unwanted creatures should be kept as far away as possible from your property. The last thing you want is to find these animals in the walls of your house and potentially causing thousands of dollars in damage.

PREVENTION

There are several preventative measures that you can initiate in order to discourage animals from choosing your house as a den site.

  • Keep your home well maintain. Check for aging construction or unsecured openings where creatures can gain access to home; leaks, missing shingles, torn roofing materials, damaged soffit and fascia.
  • Check for animal damage or droppings. If found, address immediately, the problem could only worsen.
  • Remove food sources and keep garbage in secured trash cans.
  • Make sure all repairs are sturdy. Animals, such as raccoons are very strong animals.
  • Clean your gutters
  • Check your attic periodically throughout the year
  • Use a chimney cap
  • Trim back trees and/or remove tall structures away from home.
