Blue Chip Pest Ser vices Provides Professional Wildlife Control in St. Louis, Missouri
St. Louis, Mo August 6, 2012
Residents of St. Louis who are plagued by wildlife on their property will be glad to know that Blue Chip Pest Services now provides wildlife control. Whether homeowners are bothered by small wildlife such as raccoons, skunks, or squirrels or flying animals such as bats or starlings, the professionals here can help eliminate the problem while also taking measures to prevent these creatures from entering a home in the future.
Wild animals can be adorable to look at; however, many of them carry diseases that can be harmful to humans. Animals such as raccoons and skunks are known to carry rabies, and being bit by one of these animals could result in humans or domestic animals contracting this disease. Rabies is not the only concern when dealing with wildlife, as raccoons and opossum also carry round worm. Starlings are known to be carriers of histoplasmis, which can cause blindness or death in humans.
Some wild animals may not pose a health hazard, but can nonetheless cause a great deal of property damage. Squirrels in an attic have been known to chew through electrical wires. Skunks and chipmunks can cause damage to patios or sidewalks from burrowing. The urine from bats can cause wood to rot in areas where they have been nesting. Rodent control is extremely important, as creatures such as moles and voles can damage yard turf. Squirrels may also damage the siding on a home’s exterior if left unchecked.
Homeowners who discover wildlife in their home, garage, or backyard should not try to remove the animals by themselves. Wild animals often attack when they are frightened, resulting in serious injury. In addition, the method of entry used by the animal may not be properly sealed, which means future infestations can still occur. It can also be difficult to know when all the animals have been removed, so homeowners could believe they are safe even though a problem still exists.
Blue Chip Pest Services uses humane methods of pest control to rid St. Louis homes of wildlife. Specialists here use a trap and remove method of handling nuisance wildlife, so the animals are not harmed. They can also recommend a treatment program to help homeowners keep their lawns free of moles.
