Wildlife Control Services

We all love to watch wildlife from a distance but having one live in the walls or rafters of your home is a bit too close for comfort. Not only do they cause damage and make noise in the walls they are a health hazard to humans.

Solutions Pest Control preferred approach to wildlife control is to gently nudge them back out into their natural surroundings to find an appropriate and permanent place to live.

Humane Wildlife Control Services

Wildlife Control is defined differently by others in the pest control industry. However, at Solutions Pest Control, we define Wildlife Control as the humane removal of wildlife from your home and living areas; and then the prevention of future wildlife problems.

The “humane” part is simple. Solutions Pest Control avoids the use of live trapping and relocation if at all possible. When the animal is trapped and relocated, it is taken out of its territory and away from its family and food supplies. This greatly reduces the chances of survival.

Allowing the wildlife to remain in its natural territory while excluding it from your home (or business) ensures the delicate balance between humans and animals is preserved.

Local Wildlife Problems

The most common wildlife that home owners or businesses in Metro Vancouver are likely to encounter are Bats, Squirrels, Raccoons, Skunks, Possum & Birds.

Squirrels, Raccoons and Skunks can be found in every neighbourhood from Meto Vancouver to Whistler and Pemberton.

If you have one of “these guys” in your home right now, you may want to see our blog about “What To Do If A Wild Animal Gets Into Your Home

Bats and some other wildlife species are protected under BC laws. You may want to give us a call before you consider wildlife removal a DYI project. At the very least we can give you some precautionary advice.

Birds are a complex issue because of the diversity in size, species and characteristics of birds. We have an entire page describing issues around controlling birds as pests.

Bats

Bats are beneficial to the environment, however, there are reasons for homeowners to be concerned.

Bat Fact:
Bats play an important role in our environment as they can consume up to 3,000 insects in one night.
There are several signs that can alert you to the presence of bats in your home. Some will be obvious, others less so. Clearly, if you see bats flying to and from your home, that is a prime indicator, as is finding dead bats around your property. Here are some other signs to watch for:

  • Bat guano. This is another name for droppings. To have bat guano present in your home, you need to have bats. Bat guano is long, thin, and dark, resembling mouse droppings, only larger, Bat guano can be dangerous to humans as it carries fungal spores which can cause a lung disease called histoplasmosis. If your bat infestation is relatively new, you might not notice them right away, but bats use what seems to be a designated area where their droppings will accumulate into an impossible-to-miss pile.
  • Sounds in the attic. Bats are generally quiet, but you might hear them in your attic, especially if they become caught in something or get stuck behind the walls.
  • Oily streaks. Bats produce oil on their skin that can leave dark marks when they squeeze through small holes to enter and exit your home. These entry points can be any space large enough for them to fit through, meaning they can be virtually anywhere in your home.
  • A strong smell in the attic. If your attic has a strong, ammonia-type smell, you likely have a bat infestation. The mix of guano and bat urine produces a very powerful odour that you can’t miss, and which you should avoid breathing in. The presence of this odour can alert you to the presence of bats even when their droppings are out of sight.
  • Stains on the ceiling. After your bats have been living with you for an extended period, their urine and droppings will create mildew and moisture that begins to seep through your ceilings. The stains will start small and possibly remain unnoticed for a time, but eventually they become obvious.
The short answer is yes, you should.

The concern that most people tend to have with bats centres around rabies. While far fewer bats than you might think carry rabies, that doesn’t stop them from being the second largest threat of exposure for humans (following raccoons). While many will think first of the dangers of being bitten, one can also be exposed through fur, urine, and feces.

As mentioned above, bat guano can also cause histoplasmosis. Primarily a lung disease, it may also spread into the rest of the body, potentially proving fatal. If you discover bat droppings in your home, do not attempt to clean them up yourself. Trust a professional to do it for you.

Other potential issues involve having a bat die in your home, perhaps stuck behind a wall. When this happens, not only will you have to deal with the stench, but you will be attracting a host of insects that will lead to a secondary problem that may be just as complex to deal with.

The Greater Vancouver Region has 10 species of bats, with the largest colony existing in Deas Island Regional Park. While having them enter homes is a problem, not all bats will. They can also be found roosting in trees, particularly if they are older trees with peeling bark or damage that has resulted in cavities.

The following are some more bat facts for Vancouver homeowners:

It is illegal and ineffective to remove bats using:

  • Pesticides
  • Playing loud music
  • Installing ultrasonic devices
  • Scattering mothballs
  • Setting up bright lights
Bat Fact:
F.Y.I Bats are protected under the Wildlife Act. For this reason, you should never attempt to deal with bats on your own but instead, call a professional.

Squirrles

While bats may cause an involuntary shudder among some people, squirrels are sometimes viewed as harmless, if not actually cute. Unfortunately, squirrels are not as harmless as they might appear. Here are some signs that you might have these unwanted visitors in your home:

  • Strange Noises. Squirrels are large enough to make considerable noise running around in your attic. You will usually hear them in the morning and again at dusk.
  • Nests. Squirrels will build nests for themselves using your insulation in combination with natural elements that they bring into your home. If you spot items from outside your home and damaged insulation, you likely have squirrels.
  • Odours. There may be foul odours in your home, coming from squirrel urine or even the decomposing body of a dead squirrel trapped in your walls.
  • Droppings. As always, droppings are a sure sign that something has entered your home. Squirrel droppings are bacteria-ridden and should be avoided.
  • Acorns. This may seem a bit cliché, but squirrels actually do like acorns. If you find a stash of acorns in your attic, you can be sure that a squirrel has brought them there.
  • Damage to your home. Squirrels may chew through just about anything, including beams and wires. Spotting this kind of damage can indicate their presence.
Squirrels cause damage to roofs and other structures. Their goal is to nest in a warm, dry, secluded shelter spaces that provide protection from other animals and humans. The holes they make in roofs can let rain or snow enter the building.

Squirrels in your attic can be worrisome for a couple of reasons. Not only do you not want to deal with the noise and smell they bring, but they can also be a very real hazard by threatening your health, or potentially starting fires by chewing wires.

If you suspect that you have squirrels in your attic, take steps to have them removed before they become more difficult to remove.

Although there are 4 types of squirrel in B.C. it is the Eastern Grey squirrel that is most common in cities. Despite their name, they may be grey or black and possess fluffy tails that are larger than their bodies.

Grey squirrels can often be found in back yards, munching on bulbs, seeds, fruit, and even the bark of certain trees and plants. They also happily help themselves to the contents of bird feeders. They have even been known to steal Christmas light bulbs.

Raccoons

Like squirrels, raccoons are not the most silent or subtle animals when they enter your home. Many of the warning signs for squirrels are the same as other pests.

  • Strange noises. Raccoons are the largest of the pests you will find invading your home. They will produce a fair amount of thumping and bumping, which will be more noticeable than the sounds of smaller animals, sometimes even sounding like a small person.
  • Time of activity. Raccoons are nocturnal, meaning they will be at their most active in the late evening and overnight. In the spring, you might be able to hear the high-pitched squealing of babies calling their mother.
  • Nests. Like squirrels, raccoons will bring nesting materials into your home to use in conjunction with whatever they can tear up in your attic.
  • Visible damage. While smaller pests might be able to squeeze through a small opening, raccoons may cause more visible damage to gain entry to your home. With their sharp teeth and claws, they can chew through roof tiles, support beams, and drywall.
  • Droppings. Raccoons will designate one area as a latrine, and even a small buildup of feces may produce an odour that is noticed elsewhere in the house. Their feces are usually dark, two to three inches in length, and tubular. They may also contain undigested berries.
Raccoons, like many rodents, carry diseases that can harm humans. They may also have rabies. If you see one out and about during the day, however, contact animal control.

Raccoons could also prove a danger to your pet. They have been known to attack, even killing cats and small dogs. Your pet can also come into contact with their feces, which may contain roundworms. Raccoon urine contains the bacteria leptospirosis, which can damage human kidneys.

Like other pests, they can cause damage to your property, both through their waste, and their chewing.

Raccoons are easy to find in many urban areas and have proven to be aggressive on multiple occasions. In Richmond in particular, they have attacked pets out for a walk or in yards and have left some residents hesitant to let their children venture out alone.

As a protected species, however, they leave homeowners in a difficult position of not being able to move against them. Calling for professional assistance is necessary.

Skunks

Most people will think immediately of the skunk’s signature smell, and this is, of course, a sign that they are around. Smell alone isn’t an indicator of a problem, however. The smell of skunk spray can be detected a good distance from where it was released.

In addition to smell, you might come across damage to your lawn. Skunks will dig three to four-inch depressions in the ground, shaped like a half-moon.

Skunk droppings are similar to those of a cat but can be easily differentiated by the presence of undigested foods, such as berries, seeds, and insects.

Skunks that choose to cohabitate with you will likely be found under porches or decks. The biggest danger on your mind is probably having the skunk spray you, a family member, or a pet, and that is certainly a concern, but skunks may also carry rabies, which can make them aggressive.

As with other pests, the feces of skunks possess harmful bacteria and may contain parasites that remain infectious for days or weeks. Skunks also carry fleas, lice, ticks, roundworms, and more. Even a dead skunk can prove harmful if precautions are not taken when disposing of them. Always turn to a professional.

Skunks are very common especially in areas such as West End and Strathcona, with some commenting that West End has more skunks than humans. They can be found throughout Vancouver, even in developed areas. Stanley Park also offers skunks plenty of space to roam.

Whether in urban or suburban areas, skunks manage to adapt, making appearances in virtually every neighbourhood.

Possums

Having a possum in your home will provide you with many of the same signs as other pests, though perhaps with some variation. Like raccoons, possums are noisy, but where raccoons thump and bump, possums shuffle and scrape. Also, like raccoons, they are nocturnal, so if the noise stops around dawn only to begin again after dark, you may have a possum.

Possums produce feces similar to those of dogs. It is about 3/4 of an inch thick, with smooth sides and tapered ends. Typically, dark brown or black, they may occasionally be curved. The smell of their feces and urine is quite strong, often giving a heads up to their presence.

Possums may not pose the same physical threat that other pests do. While they might bare their teeth, they are not likely to lunge and bite, nor do they typically carry rabies. That doesn’t mean that they are harmless, however. Virtually all wildlife can carry disease, including possums, which might carry leptospirosis, tuberculosis, toxoplasmosis, spotted fever, and more.

Possums may also cause structural damage to your home as they build themselves a place to nest.

Possums are not considered abundant in Vancouver, though they certainly are present in enough numbers to find their way into homes. One particular incident saw police in Ladner remove a possum from a resident’s shower stall.

With changing climates, possums may become a more familiar sight.

Wildlife Pest Control Treatments

Remove Wildlife from your home

While pests may range from potentially dangerous to mostly annoying, there are none that you will want to keep in your home. Solutions Pest Control understands that the safety of your home and family is of utmost importance, and we’re here to help you deal with all pest infestations.

At Solutions Pest Control we understand that our community lives in harmony with nature. When things get out of balance and nature encroaches into our home or endangers our family then we need to push back, but just to restore the balance. In general, our Wildlife Treatments are to:

  • Remove the animal from your home back to their natural habitat
  • Perform remedial exclusion, that is plug the holes and prevent the animal from entering the home again
  • Customer education, identify what may be attracting the animal to your home so that the animal is not inadvertently “invited” to return.

The specifics of the Wildlife Treatment will vary depending on the species of the pest.

Dealing With Protected Species

Certain precautions must be taken with protected species like bats, due to their protected status. In such cases, simple extermination cannot be considered. Rather, a process of “exclusion” can be used to remove them. This involves sealing up entry points and leaving a single exit which is fitted with one-way doors that allow the animal to leave, but not re-enter the home. In some cases, hand removal of the pests may be called for.

Planning a Pest-Free Future

Once the pest is gone, we continue to work with you, repairing access points, looking for other possible weaknesses that might allow ingress, and showing you ways to discourage pests from returning, such as eliminating food sources. Your property should be attractive to you, not to them!

Pest Control has as much to do with Education as it does with Eradication.

Testimonial

“I had an ant problem at home and tried the DIY approach, and it did nothing; the ants continued to live happily in my house. I called Solutions pest control, wow, they came over the very same day. It took them less than 30 minutes to place a gel-like substance, harmless to kids by the way, and the ants were nowhere to be seen after a couple of hours. It has been months now since I have seen an ant.”
