You work long hard hours each day so that you can pay your mortgage and utility bills, but it’s all worth it when you can provide your family a safe and comfortable place to live. You’re proud of your home and prepared to do whatever it takes to protect it from intruders, and there are plenty of pests equally interested in finding a comfortable place to sleep and raise their own offspring. What can you as a homeowner do to avoid a wildlife infestation in your attic or crawl space?

It’s always nerve-wracking to hear the sounds of animals such as raccoons, opossums, and squirrels rooting around overhead, and they can cause a lot of structural damage in a short period of time. But our team at The Bug Man has been helping Arkansans keep their homes pest-free since 1976, and we can help humanely evict your unwanted guests. Like all other pests, the sooner you call us, the better. There are also a few easy things you can do on your own to stop an infestation before it starts. Take a little time to “think like an animal,” and begin eliminating potential access points, as well as potential habitats and food sources.

Animals search for food all day and all night, which is why it’s so important to bag your trash and store it in a covered outdoor container. Outdoor bird feeders are also always a popular target for squirrels, and you can count on them doing anything they can to overcome whatever countermeasures you use. Be sure to also empty outdoor pet water dishes and store or discard any leftover food.

Ensure that all of your attic and crawl space doors and vents are secure, and routinely inspect the screens for bird or rodent damage. Overhanging tree branches provide easy roof access for rodents and larger pests, and untended shrubbery provides a convenient place for them to hide as they search out access points. Also be on the lookout for wood rot and water damage on your eaves, soffits, and fascias. Repair or replace all water-damaged wood immediately, and treat or repaint the surfaces to keep the termites away.
