Removing Wild Animals in the Attic

There are a wide variety of animals that will try to get into your attic to take shelter. These animals include squirrels, rats, mice, raccoons, opossums, Bergen County bats and birds. The removal strategies vary slightly according to the animal. No matter what the animal is that has invaded your attic, you will need to act as quickly as possible to remove them because every animal will create damage within the attic. There are certain preventative measures that can be taken, but if the New Jersey animal is already in your attic, you will need to employ one or more of the removal techniques discussed below.

Control methods
The methods that can be applied to remove the Bergen County animals from your attic differ from one animal to the next. It is important to know that scents such as ammonia and mothballs don't always work. There are animals that are repelled by the smell, but with time they become accustomed to it. Ultrasonic sound and strobe lights may also work for a while in some situations, but the New Jersey animals could also get accustomed to them.

There are two methods that actually work well in eliminating animals in your attic.

1. Trapping Bergen County animals: you can place traps at strategic points and then use some form of bait to attract the animal into the cage. They can be placed at the entry and exit points and also at different parts of the attic to increase the chances of the animal being trapped. When caught, the New Jersey animal is relocated to an area that is safe.

2. One way exclusion doors: these are usually placed at the entry and exit points of the attic that are used by the New Jersey animals. Once the animal leaves, there is no way of getting back in.

It can be very stressful to discover that you have some unwanted guests staying in your attic. It is important to remain calm and deal with the situation as efficiently as possible. Animals in the attic can cause various problems such as torn insulation, chewed wires, feces and urine spread about, and noise disturbances that keep you up at night. Once you determine what the invading New Jersey animal is, you will be able to make a plan to remove the animal and prevent it from re-entering the home. You may also decide to hire a Bergen County professional to handle the removal process for you.
