Ohio’s Best Animal Removal Service Presents: Unmistakable Signs That You Have Unwelcome Guests, Miami, Ohio

While animals are great to see in the wild or at the zoo, they’re not a welcome sight inside your home, in your garage, or tearing up the garden. However, it can be surprisingly difficult to tell when you've got an unwelcome critter wreaking havoc in your home or yard. Homeowners in Cincinnati can turn to the wildlife removal professionals at A.S.A.P. Critter People. This team is known for providing prompt service that removes unwanted animals from homes and businesses in a humane and safe manner. Here, they'll discuss some common home invaders and how to tell whether you've got one in or around your house:

  • Raccoons: In many cases, you’ll know you've got a raccoon simply because your trash cans are knocked over and the bags are torn up. But if you need more evidence, raccoons leave tracks on the ground that are quite human like, even though they're only three to four inches long. Look around fence lines and near walls for tracks, as these pests are climbers. In addition, look for raccoon scat at the bases of trees or on logs and woodpiles. 
  • Snakes: A telltale sign of a snake issue is finding snake skin on your property or in your home. If you find a nest with eggs, especially in the late summer or early fall, call a wildlife removal pro immediately.
  • Squirrels: Squirrels are very common, but you definitely don’t want these little rodents living in your attic or walls. They are active by day and make scratching or skittering sounds in walls or crawlspaces. Also, squirrel urine has a distinct, unpleasant smell, and the odors will become even more foul if there’s a dead one in your walls.

  • Opossums: Opossums are nesting animals, so they’ll often make a home for themselves in attics or crawlspaces. It’s not uncommon to catch sight of these critters around garbage cans. They tear up lawns digging for grubs and are very noisy: Listen for hissing, shrieking, and running around in the walls.

If you notice any of these signs in or around your home, don't try to get rid of the animal yourself: Call a professional animal removal service. The wildlife removal team at family-owned-and-operated A.S.A.P. Critter People works with both home and business owners and offers a variety of services, including raccoon control, bat eviction and removal, and much more.
