Muncie, IN Snake Removal
Snake removal is another common need in our area on a daily basis. Snakes will often get into businesses, homes, garages and even attics. Once they are in an attic, they will burrow holes into the insulation and cause damage. This type of snake problem occurs most often during winter months. Reptile infestation is the last thing you want in your home or business.
Snakes enter buildings when searching for a food source. Most of the time rodents will draw them to homes and buildings. Oftentimes the type of snakes we find are identified as a Black Snake, or a black rat snake. There are many types, some of which are venomous, so never attempt to capture them on your own. This is a time when you want to rely on experienced professionals..
Common types of snake we deal with in this area are rat snakes, garter snakes, and eastern racers. If you come into contact with a snake you should never try to kill it. Snakes don’t attack unless provoked. They would much rather avoid contact and flee. Give us a call today if you think there may be an unwanted snake in your home or property. We will safely remove all types of Indiana’s snakes!
Muncie, IN Bat Removal
Bats often become a problem for homeowners. These creatures will try to gain access to homes, attics, buildings and other man-made structures any way they can. An entry point as small as a 1/2 inch is all they need. If you suspect that you have bats within your home’s attic contact Varment Guard for a no obligation home inspection. Bats are known to colonize in large numbers that can grow to upwards of 1000 bats. Once they have gained access to an attic or other structure they will begin to form these large colonies. Bats in an attic or structure occupied by persons can cause serious health risks.
Guano, or Bat fecal matter, can contain a fungus called histoplasmosis, which can be very dangerous to humans. Histoplasmosis is an infectious condition caused by a fungus found in soil. It is especially common in soil containing bat and bird droppings. Infection occurs when these spores are inhaled after a roost has been disturbed. Typically, the spores become airborne through home renovation, cleanup, and demolition projects. Construction workers, farmers, landscapers, and others who work with soil are at a higher risk of infection. Most of the infections are mild and produce either no symptoms or a minor influenza like illness. On occasion, the disease can cause high fever, blood abnormalities, pneumonia or death.
The photo here shows the damage that a bat colony can do if not properly taken care of. This usually ends with a very large amount of bat guano contamination. In this example, the bats were roosting in the soffit of a single-family home. These bats had been in the attic for a while causing a large build up of bat guano. This build up can mean damage to wood, insulation and drywall that may need to be replaced. Call us immediately if you see bats around your home.
Muncie, IN Bird Removal
Many local business owners experience problems with birds roosting on buildings and signs. Birds often become a nuisance during the spring and early summer months. Businesses and commercial properties are most affected by roosting birds. You can see birds roosting on store fronts such as grocery stores, signs and parking light fixtures. Also, on buildings where people gather such as shopping malls and restaurants.
Another bird problem is birds in buildings. They often fly into grocery stores, malls, and retail stores. This can pose a risk to the business because of their droppings. Bird droppings can damage inventory and contaminate food or present a health hazard. These birds will need to be captured and removed. This common service is provided for businesses throughout Indiana by Varment Guard. We have several contracts with large big box stores for bird control and we are sure we can assist you as well.
Residential Bird Control
Residential bird removal often involves removing birds from vents. We receive many calls from homeowners reporting that birds have gotten into vents. Microwave vents, bathroom vents, dryer vents and even attics. These are all great locations for building nests. A bird nest in a home’s vent or attic is not an ideal or desired situation for homeowners. These nests often contain bird mites that can infect the home. These small creatures can cause a large amount of damage if they are not controlled quickly. We can help with all of these bird problems and more!
Muncie, IN Squirrel Removal
Squirrels are one of the most common animals seen in the country. They run about power lines, across fence tops, in roadways and can be very cute to watch. They become not so cute when they chew a hole in the side of your house and run rampant in your attic! Squirrels are one of the most destructive rodent animals to have living in your attic. These critters are constantly chewing therefore creating extensive damages. Like some other rodents, they have teeth that never stop growing so they chew on anything they can. Major damage can be caused to your home’s wires, roof supports, attic fans and gable vents.
If a squirrel gets in an attic it will chew on wires and possibly roof supports. These nuisance pests are the number one cause of unexplained fires within the United States. Squirrel damage is estimated to be more than 40 million dollars a year. Don’t let these cute, uninvited, destructive guests stay in your attic. Contact us for removal and repairs.
Muncie, IN Raccoon Removal
Another common pest of Muncie are Raccoons. These masked animals will invade attics and take up residence in your home or building. Don’t be fooled by their cute and furry appearance. Raccoons are some of the most destructive and aggressive nuisance animals.
Raccoons will do whatever it takes to protect their young and home. Once a raccoon has gotten into an attic they can destroy wiring, duct work, insulation, attic vent fans and drywall. They can also contaminate your attic with animal feces and urine. This type of damage can lead to insulation replacement and other costly repairs.
If you suspect that you have a raccoon or any other animal living in your attic, call today for a no obligation inspection. Do not try to trap or remove them on your own. They are very aggressive especially when they feel threatened. Addressing an animal problem quickly will prevent extensive damages. Our experts provide complete services for Muncie Wildlife Removal.
Wildlife Damage Repairs
Many wildlife removal companies subcontract out services such as insulation, because they do not have the proper equipment or training. Subcontracting results in ineffective and/or inferior work being performed and it can make your cost higher. Most subcontractors do not have proper wildlife training, or a nuisance wildlife permit issued by the State. Inexperience often leads to animal re-infestations when they do not understand animal exclusion. Also, you should not trust an insulation company to properly disinfect your attic contaminated with bat guano or animal feces. Proper disinfection and deodorization requires a pest control license to apply appropriate chemicals.
Wild animal removal should not be attempted by anyone that does not have a nuisance wildlife permit and pest control license issued by the state of Indiana.
Varment Guard has the proper pest control license and nuisance wildlife permit to complete the job effectively. Call today to have your animal or pest problem solved
