How Quickly Can Wildlife Turn a Home Into a Nesting Ground?

A house offers many nooks and crannies that can make perfectly suitable nests for various animals. Wildlife removal should happen as soon as possible to prevent nests from being established, because it doesn’t take long. Here are some common spots in homes around Toronto that wildlife can easily and quickly turn into their nesting grounds.

  • Attics

One of the most common nesting sites for wildlife in your home is the attic. Attics are often rarely visited by the residents of the house, allowing animals to make nests and take up permanent residence. Squirrels, mice, birds, and bats can all turn your attic into their private home. Many attics have cracks or holes under eaves for ventilation that animals can easily get through. It’s important to make sure that your attic is both ventilated and sealed off to animal intruders.

  • Crawlspaces

Wildlife of all kinds tends to prefer quiet, untraveled areas in which to make their nests; crawlspaces fit these descriptors exactly. If a crawlspace is not sealed, then wildlife will quickly turn these passageways into their own private homes. Only a professional wildlife removal service should attempt to remove animals from crawlspaces, as mobility can be restricted, making the situation all the more dangerous.

  • Walls

Some homeowners may be horrified the first time they here scampering feet moving about their walls, but this is not an uncommon situation. Sometimes, cracks in outdoor siding or an indoor hole allows squirrels and other nesting animals to get into the walls of your home. Mice and other rodents can cause problems to your electrical system as they are known to gnaw on wires.

If your home has been turned into a nesting ground, then call Humane Wildlife Control. We handle all types of wildlife removal needs, including raccoon removal, opossum removal, skunk removal, squirrel removal, and more. To find out more, visit our website or call us.

Wildlife Home Protection

Nasty weather will drive anyone indoors, including local wildlife. Wild animals can enter your walls, crawlspace, and attic through holes much smaller than you might expect. Once inside, animals seeking comfort and food can do a lot more damage to a home than people often realize.

This Angie’s List report explains how much damage just a few small critters can do. The report gives examples of massive repairs needed after a small rodent invasion and other similar situations. A speaker in the video also warns you of how little space is needed for mice to enter a home, prompting you to fill any holes in your house’s walls or roof.

We can humanely remove any wildlife creatures and ensure that they can’t get back into your home. Contact us for more information.
