Glendale wildlife control tip of the month: What to do about a wild animal on the roof
Are you hearing things scampering, dancing, or even prancing on your roof? Well, you can rest be assured that it's not Santa and his eight tiny reindeer stopping in for a visit. The truth is, there is probably an animal checking out the scenery.
There are a few different kinds of Glendale animal control animals that are likely the culprits. The most common roof prancers are squirrels. Squirrels are curious creatures that like to get inside homes through eves, soffits, or any other tiny hole they can squeeze through. They can destroy wiring, eat through walls, and carry parasites like mites, ticks, and fleas.
Another common Glendale wildlife removal animal that likes to hang out on the rooves of homes is woodpeckers. While they aren't as common to get into your house, they can cause a lot of damage to the outside of your home as they look for bugs or call for mates.
Raccoons are another particularly curious Glendale pest control animal that likes to explore people's homes. These little masked bandits look for ways to enter a house, much in the way that squirrels do. However, raccoons have been known to tear through shingles and cause much more damage than squirrels.
Though the type of animal doesn't really matter, having an animal on your roof can be quite bothersome. It can lead to expensive repairs. If you're looking for ways to keep animals from dancing and wreaking havoc on your roof, there are a few options. If you want to keep squirrels away, you can place decoys on each end of your home. Decoys that would deter animals such as squirrels are birds of prey like owls, hawks or crows. They will see them as a thread and will avoid the roof.
Another way is to place feeders on your property, away from your home. By doing this, you are distracting the animals and redirecting their attention to the food that is available for them. A third way is to buy ultra-sonic devices. These types of devices range from being inexpensive to expensive. They work by transmitting low/high pitch frequencies that only the animals can hear. The sound is unappealing and will often drive them away. It works much in the same way a dog whistle does.
If none of these Glendale animal trapping methods work, then you should call someone to come out and look at the situation. The type of person you call depends on the kind of animal you have. If you have pests such as squirrels a wildlife control specialist is likely the one to answer the call for help.
If you have larger animals such as raccoons and opossums, the conservation department is the Glendale exterminator company you want to call. They will come to your home, set traps and then relocate them once they have been captured.
