Inspecting the home to find the entry points used by animals

When you realize that there are wild animals in your house, there is one very critical part of the solution and that is home inspection. There is no way you can solve the issue at hand till that time that you find each and every hole that the animals are nosing to gain access to your home. These areas have to be sealed by way of very professional repairs. There are various removal companies that offer such services and you can get lots of information regarding solving wildlife issues.



Wild animals occasionally make a shelter within your house. This can be for some days or over winter or during the besting and mating seasons. If you have this issue, then you have to start with inspection of your house. This is an inspection that has to be done very thoroughly. Observe all the areas of weakness. Most animals like to hide under the porch, in the shed, in the attic, the basement and yet others live within walls and chimneys.

If you aren’t in a position to do a comprehensive search for the weak points yourself, get a professional who can do a more thorough job. If checking the basement, signs of burrowing animals should be checked. This would be evidenced by the gaps in the soil. Cracks and hoes in the walls, chimneys and the attic can also be a sign that animals are using such points to enter.

You can also spot animal furor droppings around such areas. In the case of bats, they usually leave the nest at night. You can stay outdoors at dusk so as to see the point from which they leave and at dawn to observe the entry points. You need to know that seeing the entry points is only the beginning. You will need to deal with the issue of removing the animals first before you can start sealing off the points of entry. In case of the larger animals, trapping and relocation should be done first.

One of the reasons why animals may find your home cozy may be due to the fact that they are nesting. Even if you see the animal leaving, don’t go and seal off the point of entry because there might still be some young ones living within.

Bats have a tendency to leave some oily marks in the entry and exit points and they can use pretty small cracks. There are also the squirrels which may gnaw different areas to make some passage room. All these are things you need to look at. Go back to the How to get rid of wildife home page.
