Summer is over, and now it’s that time of year when varmints start searching for their winter homes. Unfortunately, our own homes offer a pleasant winter vacation spot for critters. Squirrels, snakes, mice, and other nuisance animals can and will find all opportunities for refuge that your home may present.

After all of these years in the wildlife removal and pest control business, we’ve seen and heard of some whacky techniques that didn’t work. Of those were:

  • Funneling car exhaust into mole and snake tunnels (And for those of you wondering, it doesn’t work.)
  • Vibration machines set up to deter critters (This doesn’t work either.)
  • And possibly the worst of all: Using so much poison they can’t let their kids play in the yard. This is dangerous for your pets as well, and we know of some folks who have had to give up gardening and other joys of life due to all the poison they’ve put in their yard.

There has to be a better way to reclaim your home and yard! Our wildlife control experts know the best ways to cure your particular problem. Here’s an example: SNAKES. You need a professional to identify the snake and then follow the law. In some areas, it is illegal to kill snakes unless they threaten you — even if they are venomous. Snake juice, snake repellent, etc. is FAKE! Those products are akin to “snake oil!” Removal is the solution, and property management at the recommendation of your Integrated Pest Management professional is the prevention.

Voles – also known as field mice – are a significant food source for snakes, hawks, foxes, coyotes and owls. Without a professional, these critters are especially difficult to eradicate. Flooding just shows you where the field mice have been in your yard, not where they escape to when the deluge comes. It’s important to note that removal of a food source must be done in an environmentally friendly manner as to not disrupt the circle of life in your neighborhood’s outdoors!

Moles are insectivores and they love earthworms. Moles are constantly looking for fresh garden spaces, especially because gardens are so much more attractive to worms due to freshly tilled earth and moist soil. Most of the time, all that a “home remedy” will do for you is relieve your wallet of its burden of cash.
