Skunk Poop Vs. Raccoon Poop

There are various methods for squirrel removal from your attic with some methods being more effective than others are. Some homeowners use repellents like odor, lights, and noise. There are also various types of cages that will trap the squirrels so you can remove them safely and relocate outside. At times it can be a tricky problem to get rid of those annoying squirrels so the homeowners leave to a professional pest control service.

A homeowners attic is usually warm and cozy, just the type of place some squirrels love to nest, especially the females when they are ready to have their babies. Squirrels can cause extensive damage to the attic along with leaving an unsanitary mess. Because squirrels want to nest in a quiet safe environment and usually do not take well to smells that could suggest to them that a predator is near or noise and lights. A good source of unpleasant noise is to set a radio to a talk station. This could be a repellent to use that will cause the squirrels to leave without harming them. A homeowner can also place a bright light in the attic to make the area less attractive to the squirrels. To disrupt a squirrel's sense of security more you can leave rags that have been soaked in ammonia throughout your attic. Ammonia mimics the smell of a predator's urine so the squirrels would rather leave than become dinner for a predator.

There are also other different commercial things on the market to help with squirrel removal, like strobe lighting or high-pitched sounds. If you find that these repellants are not working trapping them is a great way to remove them. The most effective ones are multiple-animal traps, one-way exclusion door traps, and single-animal cages. If you use a single-animal cage the squirrel will be lured into the cage using bait and when the squirrel steps inside the trap door mechanism triggers the door to go shut. The traps are usually put where the squirrels come and go. The homeowner will have to make sure that there are no other ways for the squirrel to get in besides going into the trap. The best trap to use to ensure squirrel removal is the one-way exclusive door, which allows the squirrels to leave the attic but will not let them back in. It is best not to use poison as a squirrel could crawl into an inaccessible space to die and leave nasty odors in the attic. If there are baby squirrels do not attempt to remove any of them until the babies can take care of themselves.

Armadillos are relatively recent immigrants to the American south and southeast. Their population has spread rapidly in the few decades they've been in the United States, and they have already taken over nearly all of the non-desert areas of the southern half of the country. Most commonly seen as road kill, armadillos are also pests that can destroy extensive amounts of outdoor space with the digging and burrowing they do to search for food.

The Basics
The most common variety found in the United States is the nine-banded armadillo. They generally weigh between 12 and 22 pounds. They are protected by a hard outer armor that looks a bit like a shell. They have long claws that are optimized for digging, which they extensively do in their search for insects, their main source of food. 'Dillos have powerful noses that can smell an insect through 8 inches of soil, and they're not shy about chasing after a meal. They are mostly nocturnal animals who live in burrows when they are not out digging up insects.

Remove Your Problem
It can be difficult for an amateur to keep their yards safe from these insect hunters. Fences are easy for them to burrow underneath, and scent deterrents either wash away or take excessive effort to properly implement. Your best bet for removing and excluding armadillos from your yard or home is to call a professional pest control team. These wildlife extraction experts will be able to safely remove and relocate your pesky armored intruder. Once your pesky visitor is gone, your pest control experts can make recommendations on how to successfully keep any future intruders out of your yard and away from your house.
