At some point most of us have had a run in with wildlife, around our property or inside of our home, or know of someone who has. Raccoons, squirrels and mice are a few of the potential wildlife invaders who seem to be making some St. Louis residents uncomfortable this winter, and with good reason! Nuisance wildlife are just that, a nuisance, but they can also be quite destructive!
Wildlife problems in St. Louis are no small matter. In fact, at Rottler we have an entire wildlife removal program designed to get rid of and prevent wildlife from threatening your home, family and property because we understand just how serious a problem they can be. In fact, to give you an idea of their capabilities, we’ve compiled a list of problems commonly associated with St. Louis wildlife infestations:
Rodents and wildlife will damage building materials and/or electrical wiring with their digging and chewing.
Nesting and inquisitive pests damage personal property including boxes of clothing and other belongings in the attic and other storage areas.
Mice disable/damage vehicles when they nest in engines and other areas of the car including trunks.
Wildlife contaminates insulation and other building materials as well as personal property with their urine and droppings.
Some types of wildlife (such as the raccoon) are known carriers of serious diseases and pathogens including rabies and may threaten the health of your family and pets. They can also introduce other pests like fleas, ticks and mites into your home.
As you can see, no good comes of wildlife in St. Louis deciding to venture into your home or even just hang around on your property. Because of their ability to cause extensive damage to homes and threaten those who dwell within,it is important to contact Rottler Pest & Lawn Solutions at the first sign of a problem. Be sure to check the less visited rooms of the home for any sign of wildlife activity including chew marks, droppings, or nests. Listen for scratching or shuffling noises in walls or ceilings. If you do notice live animals in the home, do not attempt to handle them because some wildlife can be quite aggressive when cornered or provoked.
