How to Prepare for a Wildlife Removal Inspection

Raccoons, rodents, bats, insects, and other small mammals are some of the most common nuisance wildlife known to infest homes and businesses. The first step to getting them out of your residential or commercial property is to schedule an inspection in which a wildlife removal professional will conduct a thorough walkthrough of your property to determine the size and extent of your wildlife issue.

Here are some ways you can prepare ahead of your scheduled wildlife removal inspection.

Household Areas to Prep Before a Wildlife Removal Inspection

  1. The Kitchen

Anywhere that stores food is vulnerable to pests. Improperly stored food and dirty dishes attract critters looking for their next meal. The wildlife removal specialist will check cabinets and crawl spaces for signs of entry. You can prep your kitchen by clearing out your cupboards, looking for chewed through boxes or droppings, and throwing away spoiled food.

  1. Bathrooms

Bathrooms contain the plumbing that attracts pests due to excessive moisture. It’s also an easy point of access for small critters like bugs and rodents. Make it easy to access pipes by clearing out cabinets before your inspection. Inform your technician if there’s any plumbing issues so they know exactly where to check.

  1. Storage Spaces

Garages, closets, pantries, and attics are some of the most common places for wild animals and pests to hide. These cool, dark areas often have a lot of clutter, so clear space for your wildlife removal technician by moving storage boxes away from the walls toward the center of the room. If your attic requires a ladder, clear the space below and protect the surrounding area from insulation and dust.

  1. The Exterior

After checking inside, the technician will walk around your home’s exterior to check for wildlife entry points and other damages. Trim up any bushes or tree limbs touching your home. Move any storage or other outdoor items away from the wall as well.
