Anyone who has a cat or dog knows that not every animal in your home is an unwanted pest.

In some cases, an infestation may warrant emergency animal removal services. At Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control, we are prepared to deal with whatever animal has infiltrated your home.

What is a Wildlife Emergency?
If you see signs of mice in your attic or snakes in your backyard, you may not be in the midst of a wildlife emergency. A wildlife emergency is a little more noticeable. If you have a bat or bird flying around your living room or a snake in the bathroom, however, you may be having a wildlife emergency and need animal removal services or animal repellent services.
In some cases, particularly if you’ve recently moved into a new housing development, the animals in the wild nearby may have recently lost their habitat. As a result, the animals might be looking for a new place to call home, so they seek shelter in places that are not designed for them to live. In these cases, the animals may decide your new house or apartment is the perfect place for them to live. Sadly, this is not a good choice for either the animal or the people in the house. Animals can bring a variety of diseases and parasites, including:
- Lyme’s disease
None of these diseases are pleasant, so it’s vital that you do not try to remove the animal yourself. Instead, you should contact emergency removal services in MD, such as the ones that Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control has to offer.
Signs That You Need Animal Removal Services
Sometimes, the signs that an animal is living in your house aren’t quite so apparent. In such cases, you’re not dealing with a wildlife emergency, but you should still seek animal removal services as soon as possible.
One of the key signs that your home is playing host to animals is that you’ve found animal droppings. In most cases, they’ll be in areas that you don’t go very often, such as your attic or basement. Please do not touch the animal droppings, as they can be dangerous for your health.
You may also begin hearing noises in your home during the night. During the day, many animals are sleeping or foraging for food, but at night, when it’s quiet, you may hear them in scuttling about in your walls or ceiling. You may also smell strange scents, which may get worse as time goes on. These smells can be caused by animal urine or fecal matter, or, in the worst-case scenario, an animal may have died in your home. If the animal has died, you need to call dead animal removal services so that your home isn’t invaded by scavengers, like raccoons or buzzards.
It would help if you also kept an out for ways that small creatures like mice or bats can get into your house. Many animals can squeeze into the tiniest of holes, so it’s best to make sure those holes are stopped up.
