Overview of Wildlife Services
Just as mankind got used to living in cities and towns, so has wildlife. What is not to like about a nice apartment in the city or a home in the suburbs? Homes have a continual supply of food, are cool in the summer, warm in the winter and keep the rain out. This is just as inviting to wildlife as it is to human beings. As humans encroach more and more on the natural habitat of wildlife, they adapt and take advantage where possible.
Damage Caused by Wildlife
A squirrel in an attic may not sound risky. However, wildlife is responsible for millions of dollars of damage every year to homes nationwide. They chew their way through small openings, making them bigger to get in and out of easier. It also opens up a pathway for rain and snow to cause water damage. Mice have a particular like for chewing on the insulation of electrical wiring which can cause fires. In fact, many fires that cannot be pinned down to known causes are suspected to have been caused by wiring damaged by wildlife.
The best way to prevent infestation is to make the home and property uninviting. Do not put out any food items that attract wildlife. Search the exterior and seal up even the tiniest holes with caulking or other appropriate methods. Repair all screening materials, especially ones in attic vents at the eaves. Do not let plants get too close to foundations. Trim everything to remove hiding spaces and traveling paths. Small rodents like to travel protected from view of predators.
How to Remove Wildlife
The safest and surest way to remove Brooklyn wildlife infesting a property or home is to call a professional. Most people have advice to offer on how to get rid of various critters, but there are risks. Any animal can carry diseases that can infect humans. Even the droppings of animals and their saliva on objects can transmit pathogens. There is more to ridding a home of an infestation than just getting rid of the animals.
After they are removed, we will know exactly what needs to be done to stop other animals from moving into the now vacant space. Also, a cleanup and repair of damage must be completed. The final step is to remove what attracted the animals in the first place.

They also know what needs to be done to prevent a re-infestation in the future. We can come out to your Brooklyn home or apartment and safely handle the problem.
