If your home or property has unwanted wildlife visitors, consider contacting a local animal trapping service. Do not try to handle the situation yourself unless you are a trained wildlife expert with the knowledge and proper tools for the job!

Whether they crawl or fly, wild animals can be dangerous and lead to scary situations that can put you and your family in harm’s way. Below are some of the reasons you should consider contacting professional animal trappers.

Ensures You and Your Family Are Safe

Animal trapping services have one goal: to keep the homeowner(s) safe. Trying to handle and remove a wild animal, whether it is a bat, raccoon, or bear, can be a hazardous situation for anyone, including the professionals. A wildlife expert takes measures to ensure the people involved, the animal, and their team are protected from dangerous scenarios, especially if the animal attacks.

Offers Personalized Solutions 

Wildlife can be unpredictable, hence the name. The actions, mannerisms, and temperament of one raccoon will not necessarily be the same for another raccoon. This applies to all types of wildlife. Each type of disturbance call requires personalized solutions. Having a wildlife expert control and manage a situation results in a good outcome.

Access to Proper Tools and Training

With a reputable and licensed animal trapping service, the professionals have access to the proper tools and equipment for wildlife removal. The various tools used to capture an animal can maim or kill an animal if not used properly. From non-toxic bait to catch-poles and traps, only an expert would understand which trapping method works best and safely. Training for such a position takes knowing about each type of wildlife and how to manage their actions.

Saves You Time and Money

Hiring an experienced wildlife service can save time and money. With their knowledge of an animal’s habits and mannerisms, a professional can use specific tools of the trade to remove wildlife quickly. Trying to handle a wildlife intruder on your own can see hundreds of dollars wasted, not to mention increase the chances of being harmed.

Provides Permanent Solutions

In Ontario, there are specific laws surrounding trapping wildlife and relocation. Any trapped animal must be relocated within 1 km of where they were captured. A professional trapper is licensed by the province to perform adequate trapping management and, if necessary, can permanently remove the raccoon or other animal from your property. In Ontario, there are also laws dictating which traps can be used for different animals. All must be humane and not cause undue harm to the animal or to people.

Prevents Future Problems

Professional trapping services handle the existing wildlife issue as well as take steps to prevent the return of other wildlife. Understanding what attracts wild animals to a property or home is key in establishing a safe perimeter to prevent further furry visitors.

Sanitizes the Area

Once an animal has been displaced from the home or property, it is essential that the animal removal service takes precautionary measures with proper sanitation. Raccoons, skunks, foxes, and other wildlife can carry and transmit disease, even without direct human contact. Using proper cleaning tools, the professional trapper will ensure the area is safe and free of disease.

Offers Peace of Mind 

A professional animal trapper can offer peace of mind with their results. It is one thing to get rid of pests, it is another to ensure the problem does not ensue. Hiring a professional animal trapping service can guarantee the problem will be resolved in a safe and timely manner. It also can provide reassurance that the wildlife issue is permanently handled.
