What Animals Can Pest Agencies Control?

Pest control agencies are often tasked with eradicating insects, removing mammals and relocating reptiles, but many people overlook the fact that although they will likely treat particular animals most commonly; they will also have access to state of the art facilities and features to address a broader range.

For those wondering what types of animals can be treated by these experts, here’s a look at some of the most common – as well as those that could be deemed a little more uncommon.

Exotic snakes

It’s not unheard of for exotic snakes to make their way into people’s homes from time to time and as there are so many different species, all of which carry their own levels of toxins – it can be quite daunting to come face to face with one. Fortunately all snakes can be captured and removed in much the same way, with a pair of tongs and a canvas bag. A good pest controller will know exactly what to do without concern.

Infectious mammals

Some mammals carry harmful bacteria that can take an immediate and severe toll on humans and pets. If they are able to traverse a home without being captured and controlled, then the chance of all inhabitants suffering with illness can be much higher. Control officers are able to evaluate the location of these types of mammals, including rats, and then introduce measures to put an end to their spread, whilst eradicating their presence. Furthermore, they can even apply treatments to ensure that any bacteria and infectious diseases left behind are all but eliminated in their entirety.

Predatory birds

Although uncommon, it’s not unheard of for larger birds to make their way into crevices within roof tiles, or gaps inside of walls, and then establish a nest. Predatory birds such as eagles, hawks and falcons will usually create a nest when they are ready to lay their eggs – and this is when they are at their most dangerous. Although it would be inhumane to kill these majestic creatures, a good control officer will be able to trap and release them back into the wild where they will pose less of a threat.
