Is The Animal A Problem?
The first thing that a professional will need to assess is if a real problem exists. The individual will come to where the issue is and seek to find out what kind of animal it is, a possible reason why the animal is there and how they may possibly remove it. This assessment will also include trying to find out if there are any baby animals involved in the situation.
In formulating a resolution between the human and the animal(s) having more knowledge is better than no knowledge. Animals can be very sensitive to being messed with. Especially if there are young involved, relocation can get very difficult. Caution must be used and proceeding in a way that does no harm to animal or environment is desired.
The third step is to assess the options for removal. Options can vary based on the type of animal, its age, and whether there are young involved. Options may also vary depending on where the animal is. Is the animal on the exterior of a home or dwelling, or has it infiltrated a basement, crawl space, or attic?
Some of the options can include:
- changing of human actions
- modifications to buildings
Repellants are probably the most humane and effective means to move an animal from one area to another. Sprinkling the perimeter of the area with the repellent will deter the animals from returning to places where they simply should not be. Repellants are also very affordable and can be gotten at many hunting stores.
