Bats
Bat removal starts with identifying areas bats are using
or could use. Bats will gain entry into a structure in many
ways. Usually it is due to construction defects, defects
caused by weather, or just poor maintenance.

These locations are typically high areas such as soffit to
roof intersects, ridge ventilation caps, gable end vents,
drip edges, home additions, around chimneys, these are
typical bat pest control problems. Ridge vents are a great
example why these areas are looked at in bat removal.

During an inspection of a bat job we check the ridge vents
for lifting up, rodent damage, and end caps missing.
There is no easy long term solution in bat removal for a
ridge vent fix except to exclude the ridge vent. Palmetto
Wildlife uses an effective removal solution for bat removal

Raccoons
Raccoons are quite common in South Carolina, and it is
not unnatural to spot one in your yard or around your home.
However, there are less sightings during the day, as
raccoons are active at night. These cute furry animals can
be a true nuisance to some.

Feeding habits

Raccoons can feed on almost anything, but they are more
fond of creatures that are mostly found in water like
crayfish, clams, fish, snails and frogs. They also like to eat
insects, birds, birds’ eggs, seeds, nuts, vegetables and
fruits. They are great climbers and can easily get inside
your house. When present in an urban area,
they can often ...

spending time in? How would you feel if suddenly
something long and thin slithered beneath your feet while
you were sitting with your family in your garden?

catch some prey. Usually snakes are most active from the
beginning of April until mid-fall. However, you may see
them any time.

easy to control unless you are a professional.
Specifications for rats can vary the length of an average
rat is from 6-18 inches that’s including their tail. Roof rats
tend to be charcoal grey in color as compare to your
sewer rat which is a brownish tan.

much of a diet. They consume ½ to 2oz of liquid a day.
These are nocturnal creatures they eat and drink under
the cover of darkness. They are loud and gnaw at
anything they can,

rats have been known to cause electrical fires in homes
by exposing electrical wires in attics. Rats are the cause
of much damage and carriers of parasites and disease.

Squirrels
Most complaints about squirrels are from homeowners
with squirrels in their houses which include the attic,
chimney and fireplace. Squirrels will readily take up
residence in a building attic if access to sheltered areas
such as eaves and attic crawl spaces is available.

Gnawing, scratching, and pattering sounds, in early
morning or daylight hours, usually signal their presence.
Balls of torn insulation, cardboard, and dried leaves
and twigs may pinpoint nests in an attic, but nests
and young may be totally concealed within the attic
eaves or wall spaces.

handled by a trained professional. Animals that appear
sick or that are acting abnormally should be avoided.

of rabies or other neurological diseases in mammals:


unprovoked aggression, impaired movement, paralysis
or lack of coordination, unusually friendly behavior and
disorientation.Skunks are primarily nocturnal, although
they are occasionally active during the day.

3 Signs That You Have a Snake Infestation

3 Signs That You Have a Snake Infestation

If snakes are infesting your property, your home, or any other area of your personal space, it is time for snake removal services from a wildlife extraction company that can quickly and easily ensure your safety, the safety of your loved ones, and the safety of your pets. For the most part, it is considered a rarity to see a multitude of snakes in one location within any area of the United States; however, it is NOT at all unheard of.

In fact, there have been many cases where apartments, homes, and lawns have become infested with these reptiles. According to experts, snakes are the most active during the months of July, August, September, and October and even November. If you are going to experience an infestation, the time would be now. In this brief article, you will learn about 3 signs that you have a snake infestation.

Sign #1: The Presence of Snake Skin

The first and most obvious sign that you need snake removal services is discovering the presence of snake skin. In the wild, it is common to observe these skins; however, it is not considered common to observe these skins near your home or in your home. If you observe a snake skin, it is imperative that you contact a wildlife extraction company to determine if you are facing an issue with these reptiles. If the company confirms a problem, they will initiate the snake removal process.

Sign #2: The Presence of Snake Eggs

The next sign that you have an issue with snakes is the presence of snake eggs. In most instances, these can be seen in the late summer and early fall months. You should avoid attempting to remove any eggs that you find. This puts you at risk for harm. You should enlist the assistance of a snake expert to handle the task.

Sign #3: Failed Flour Test

If you suspect that you have a snake issue, you should conduct a flour test. Simply pour the flour in areas where there is a lot of heat or areas where you feel as if you may have an issue. If you come back later to discover what appears to be trails made by snakes, the flour test has failed. You may conduct this test indoors and outdoors. If you fail the flour test, snake removal services are necessary to protect you, your loved ones, and your pets.

Common Hiding Places

There are several different hiding places that snakes may be present on your property. If you feel that you have an infestation, it is imperative that you know of these locations so that they may be checked. The following outlines these areas:

  • Natural Habitats – Snakes enjoy natural areas such as those that have a lot of grass, quarries that are no longer utilized, derelict-based urban regions, embankments, and areas with a lot of cover, such as scrubs.
  • Sunshine – Snakes will gravitate to regions that have a lot of sun – especially those with vegetation.
  • Gardens – Snakes are attracted to wood piles, rock piles, areas with a lot of grass, shrub areas, rockeries, gardens, and similar environments.
  • Heavy Debris – Snakes appreciate areas that have a lot of debris. The debris may be man-made or natural. Examples include compost regions, hedges, areas with very long grass, areas around ponds, and similar habitats.

Easy Deter Strategies

There are several strategies that aid in naturally deterring snakes. If you take the following measures, you may find that you suffer significantly less from snake infestations:

1.       Keep your lawn cut and trimmed regularly.

2.       If your property has any plants that grow low to the ground or has any shrubbery that may provide cover to snake populations, clear these challenges.

3.       If you have a compost heap, secure it in a bin that is completely sealed.

4.       If there is natural debris in your yard – such as rock piles, wood piles, leave piles, and/or log piles -remove them immediately.

5.       If you have any spaces underneath your home, sheds, patios, barns, walls, and other types of structures, seal them immediately. If you fail to do this, snakes may hide in these areas and reproduce rapidly.

Conclusion

While it is true that snakes are considered to be extremely important components of nature and gorgeous wildlife, they have the potential to pose a danger to you, your loved ones, and your pets. It is imperative that you take the steps that are necessary to prevent infestations of these creatures.

If it is too late and your property or home has now become subject to a snake infestation, you will need snake removal services, as offered by a wildlife extraction company, such as Palmetto Wildlife Extractors. This will be your only form of defense.
