Terminix Wildlife Control Plan

Animals large and small find clever ways into your home to seek shelter. Whether they’re hiding from the snowy winter, extreme heat, or simply need a safe place to nest, your walls, attic, and even storage spaces become prime spots for unwelcome guests to set up shop. 

Wildlife, however, never belongs inside your home. It is neither safe for them nor you and your family in the long run. Critters can chew through electrical wires, leave unhealthy droppings, and even become trapped and die in hard-to-access places in your walls. The moment you hear the scuttle of wildlife inside your home, it’s time to call Terminix for professional animal removal.

Animals that have built nests in your home will commonly try to return even after they’re been removed. Not only will a Terminix team expertly trap and carefully remove the animals, but they will also set up ways to keep them from coming back inside. The Terminix guaranteed services are some of the top plans in the country, offering prompt and thorough wildlife removal in 47 states across the US.

  • Squirrels
  • Raccoons

  • Rats
  • Opossums

Dangers of Wildlife in Your Home

Squirrels in the attic or a few mice in the basement may seem harmless, but their long-term effect on your home and health can be highly detrimental. Many of the common rodents and larger animals are quite skilled in damaging your home to make a proper nest for themselves, so the longer their presence goes unchecked, the higher the risk. 

Here are some common concerns with household wildlife.

Animal Potential Damage
Squirrels
  • Damage to your garden
  • Dig holes in your roof and attic
  • Chew wires, drywall, and insulation
  • Spread potent urine and droppings
Raccoons
  • Dig through and overturn your garbage
  • Spread parasitic feces
  • Heighten the danger of rabies and other diseases
  • Cause damage to your home’s roof and entryways
Mice and Rats
  • Can carry disease
  • Spread potent urine and feces
  • Die in your walls and spread a foul-smelling odor
  • Chew through wires, walls, and insulation
Groundhogs
  • Build tunnels in your yard and under the foundation
  • Damage home entry points
  • Chew and dig through electrical wires
Skunks
  • Damage your home’s entryways
  • Scavenge for food and garbage
  • Property damage when digging holes
Opossums
  • Cause property and structural damage
  • Leave potent droppings

The Terminix Wildlife Plan

The moment you detect that an animal—or animals—have burrowed their way into your home, call the expert Terminix team for a free inspection.Their three-step process ensures that you will have a pest-free home without the fear of the animals returning.

Inspection

Terminix will consider all the possible entryways for animals, any damage already caused by the critter, and ways to safely trap and remove the animal.

Exclusion

Once they’ve found and identified the animal, we will set traps and bait to remove them as quickly as possible. They will close up any small entryways that the animal could use to come back to their nest.

Re-Inspection

For the full extent of your wildlife control plan, Terminix will return each year to check on new or existing entry points and check for any new intruders.
