Camera monitoring has greatly improved our abilities to get to the bottom of your wildlife concerns. With this new technology, we have been able to see wildlife activity first-hand and come up with unique solutions to resolve your concerns.
Below are some of our best videos captioned with the lessons they taught us.
In this video, we were able to see how this raccoon was utilizing their amazing climbing abilities to get into a small cavity on the side of the chimney to enter the attic.
After monitoring the camera for several days, we were able to determine that this raccoon was visiting infrequently and did not have babies. With this information, we were able to provide the home owner with the final okay to seal up the entry hole once we were sure the raccoon had left.
This is one of several videos we recorded at this exclusion of a mother raccoon returning to feed her young kits. Looking closely, you can she her enlarged teats as she enters the open vent into the subfloor, showing us that she is a lactating mother. The frequency of her visits tells us her kits are very young and are dependent on her for survival.
Having this information is crucial in humanely evicting wildlife and ensuring that babies and mothers are not separated during the process.
In this video, you can see how crucial fox families are at controlling rodent populations. This young fox is just learning to hunt and has already helped these home owners keep rodents at bay!
This specific fox family moved along after a strong predator scent application. This video was taken on one of the last nights this family was observed living under the deck. Rest assured, they are still nearby and hunting plenty of rodents!
This video shows the effects of predator scent when directly applied to a raccoon den. We used a mix of predator scent straw and scat on this den site and within 6 hours, the mother was moving her babies to a new den site. Previous predator scent applications were applied to the perimeter of the home and the entryway and had little affect on the situation. When possible, direct applications are the more effective approach when it comes to raccoons.
This den site could have been avoided with proper preventative maintenance in the fall and winter. Its important to make sure that your subfloor vents are secure before wildlife has the chance to access the area and use it for a den site. If you would like a preventative maintenance consultation, give us a call!
