Although they are often cute, wildlife can pose a threat if they invade the home or are consuming your garden. Wildlife, such as raccoons and rodents, can also carry diseases and these are the pests that often find shelter within a residence. Wildlife pests can cause property damage if they nest in the attic or basement and they are infamous for destroying insulation and wiring. Wildlife pests can threaten residential and commercial property. Hydrex professionals are qualified and have years of experience, giving them the knowledge of how best to humanely remove a wide variety of mammals and birds that attempt to find shelter in your home.
Skunk Control and Removal
Oh no! That familiar and unwanted smell can mean only one thing — skunks! As the weather gets colder, skunks may seek shelter in your home. We frequently find skunks under porches, under homes and occasionally in attics. Besides the unbearable smell associated with skunks, skunks are known carriers of rabies. Adult skunks grow to about 22-30 inches and 8-12 pounds. Skunks are primarily nocturnal. Skunks will eat almost anything including small rodents, worms, insects, grubs, carrion, fruit, garbage, and pet food.
If you encounter a skunk, be very careful and pay attention to what the skunk is telling you. They will warn you by fluffing its fur, lifting its tail, and stomping the ground with its front feet. If this warning doesn’t discourage the threat, watch out, it will turn and spray. The typical victim of a skunk is the hapless and stubborn dog who refuses to heed the warning — giving his master a smelly mess to deal with.
Unfortunately, there is not an effective skunk repellent and the only way to remove a skunk is by trapping and removing it. Fortunately, this process is conducted very humanely when you call Hydrex. Our expert trapper is dispatched with a humane skunk trap, which is placed in possible skunk locations. Once the skunk is trapped, the Hydrex technician will remove the skunk and release him in a more appropriate setting away from neighborhoods and places the skunk can cause further problems.
If you think you have a skunk, call Hydrex immediately. We will dispatch an expert trapper who will help seal entry points and remove the offending animal humanely.
Raccoon Control and Removal
Have you heard scratching or something moving inside your walls, attic or under your house? Chances are you have a raccoon!
Raccoons are common throughout the North Bay and California. They are easily recognized by their thick fur, bushy tail, grayish color and masked face. Their claws and feet enable them to climb trees and up other impediments with ease. Most raccoons weigh between 10 and 25 pounds but given a steady diet of people food, they are known to get much bigger than that. While the normal habitat of raccoons is inside hollow trees and logs, they are frequently try to take over people’s chimneys, attics and other crawl spaces. Unfortunately, they frequently cause significant damage to the places they nest. Using your fireplace when the chimney has been taken over by a raccoon isn’t advisable.
