How to tell if you have an animal infestation

Squirrel Infestation

  • squirrel infestation in ann arborSo you're hearing scratching noises and thumping in your walls or above you in your ceilings — what now? There's a chance that you could have a squirrel infestation.
  • There may be a nest of squirrels close by in a tree, or maybe you've noticed squirrels scampering on powerlines or across your roof.
  • Night time noises will probably indicate a flying squirrel issue, but daytime activity is more likely to be tree or ground squirrel.
  • Contacting a Critter Control technician should be your number one priority as the longer you allow squirrels in your home, the larger the colony gets, which could result in rodent droppings, chewed wires, holes in your house and other issues.
  • Our professionals will search thoroughly for squirrel entry, so they know where to perform the exclusion, and then use a humane trap to capture the squirrels.

Too Many Bees?

Most bees are not harmful if you stay away from their nest; however, they are territorial creatures, and will get protective if you invade their space. That is why calling a Critter Control professional is your best bet!

Bees are common in gardens, so if you're only noticing them there, you have nothing to worry about. However, if you find them in abundance around your property, you may have an infestation. Our technicians will arrive on site and get rid of the problem and provide future protection.

Call Critter Control of Ann Arbor today if you suspect a bee or wasp invasion!

 

Raccoon Infestation

This may include rummaging through your trash, ruining crops and even killing small livestock or poultry! Signs of a raccoon property invasion include:

  • Tracks (which look like small human tracks measuring about 3–4 inches long)
  • Feces
  • A torn open garbage can or ripped garbage bags
  • Sounds including low growls when fighting for any food
  • Scratches on trees

If you have any suspicion of a raccoon invasion on your property, call us and Critter Control of Ann Arbor will send out a highly trained professional to safely capture it and provide future protection!

Bat Infestation

Bats are nocturnal animals, and will leave their roost at night to go feed. You may have a bat invasion if you have:

  • Seen one in your attic
  • Heard scratching (especially at dusk or dawn when the bat is coming or leaving its roost)
  • Seen droppings in the attic or on your windowsills

Critter Control of Ann Arbor will send a trained professional to safely capture each bat and provide future protection against invasion again. If you suspect a bat invasion, call us today!
