In Cooperation with animal rights groups we practice “Humane Wild life Control”. in fact we typically check our human live TRAPS twice per day, Once in the morning and again late afternoon.
We also support and work with animal rehabilitation facility’s when we find young or injured animals.
Chipmunks occasionally will get trapped inside the garage, but will quickly escape when the door is opened. Chipmunks do not live or reproduce inside of the home, this is done outside.
If Chipmunks do become regular visitors to the interior of your home or garage, check for food sources that may be attracting them like birdseed, pet food or grass seed, once these are stored in sealed containers the chipmunks will stay outside.
Moles are a sign of a healthy lawn with a good population of earthworms, the moles favorite food. They will tunnel many feet underground a day in search of earthworms and within a week or two make a mess of a well-maintained lawn. The mole rarely surfaces and most people have never seen one.
We can effectively control mole populations around your home with a worm-like bait that gets placed inside of the freshly dug tunnels. Proper placement is key and a thorough understanding of the habits of moles is essential. Even though the mole is very territorial and there will only be one in a yard, when that one is gone, another will be quick to move in. Placing the baits throughout the entire growing season is usually necessary.
The larger animals usually need to be trapped before any exclusion work can be performed. These animals can all cause serious injuries with their bites and should only be handled by professionals. What looks like a cute wild animal becomes something entirely different when it is in a cage or protecting a nest of young. Exclusion alone is often unsuccessful due to the ability of many of these animals to easily chew a new opening into attic spaces.
Animal trapping is a job best left to wildlife professionals.
