Humane Animal Control


A dangerous or bothersome animal that comes too close for comfort becomes a wildlife control problem. North Alabama Wildlife Removal provides wildlife animal control services to homeowners, businesses and municipalities. Wildlife damage problems that require professional wild animal control services are increasing throughout the United States. If you are experiencing problems with raccoons in the attic, bats in your chimney, or opossums in walls, call our professional animal trappers.

Rodent droppings and soiled attic insulation can be more than just a nuisance. Many wild animals carry diseases and parasites that can be transmitted to humans. Wild animals left unattended can quickly cause a great deal of damage to your attic, crawlspace and basement resulting in chewed wires, fires, matted and damaged insulation, holes in heating and cooling ducts or other problems. Wildlife control can seem daunting to the average homeowner, but we’re here to help. Call North Alabama Wildlife Removal today. We will take take care care of your wildife control concern so you can get back to the things that matter.

Humane Animal Control

The Humane Wild Animal Control Solution

Since 1983 the North Alabama Wildlife Removal concept has called for humane animal control and environmentally-responsible techniques for taking care of nuisance animal problems including animal control, animal removal, animal damage repair, animal exclusion and animal pest control prevention services. We use innovative, integrated methods to provide ecologically sound animal control services for homeowners, businesses and municipalities.

Appreciating wildlife and the natural environment we share is one of the first steps in resolving wildlife conflicts with humans. Tolerance and understanding solve many perceived ‘wildlife problems’ borne from irrational fears. Bats and snakes, for example, are very beneficial to the environment – but they are often misunderstood, and rarely a danger to humans. While there are times when we can let nature take care of itself, sometimes wildlife conflicts must be resolved to prevent further damage to our homes and property, and protect human health and safety.

North Alabama Wildlife Removal has introduced CritterSafe to offer an even more humane wildlife management option, using non-lethal animal removal, no-trap animal control, wildlife release on-site, or one-way doors to minimize stress on our wild neighbors. CritterSafe also includes our exclusive Animal Entry Worksheet home inspection and detection service, to identify potential wildlife entry points and prevent opportunistic animals from damaging your home or business in the future.

Critter Safe Options

CritterSafe considers the following in helping you resolve wildlife conflicts safely and humanely:

Is it a problem at all? For example, if a family of fox makes a den in your neighborhood, will they attack your child or your pet? Educating you about the natural history of wild animals may help you see that they are not a threat.

Collect information. Once a wildlife problem has been identified, it is necessary to positively identify the species involved, the extent of the damage, whether young animals are present and what and when management procedures can be done to resolve the issue permanently through humane animal removal solutions.

Assess the seriousness of the problem. Important considerations involve the impact on the animals involved, safety or health concerns to people or pets, likelihood of recurrence and whether the animal damage appears to be seasonal or ongoing.

Get the facts and consider the options. Taking action should be your last step. Humane animal exclusion, eco-friendly animal repellents, changing human cultural practices and habitat modification are all viable, humane strategies.

Will the action solve the problem or merely address the symptoms? The humane animal control solution needs to address the underlying cause of the problem to be effective over the long-term.

North Alabama Wildlife Removal’s certified wildlife specialists have the training and experience to quickly identify the wild animal causing the problem. We work with you to develop a plan to trap and remove the nuisance wildlife pest, prevent future animal infestation and repair animal damage. We back it up with our animal exclusion guarantee – “Our Repairs Keep Animals Out!”

Animal Exclusion Services


North Alabama Wildlife Removal makes use of several methods of habitat modification and exclusion to effectively prevent wildlife from entering your home or property. Habitat modification entails identifying and limiting access to food, water or shelter for the target species. Exclusion techniques may include sealing entry points, placing screens over vents or establishing other barriers to intrusion from wildlife.

Due to the varied nature and intelligence level of animal species and their habits, some exclusion techniques may be more effective than others. Improperly implemented control techniques may cause more harm than good by creating a situation where an animal has learned to avoid traps and baits. The wildlife professionals at North Alabama Wildlife Removal have the experience and training to quickly identify the offending animal and develop an effective plan of defense. Call North Alabama Wildlife Removal today for effective wildlife proofing techniques.

Excluding wildlife from an area of your home or property that is being damaged can be the best approach to long term wildlife control. While trapping a nuisance animal solves current animal infestation issues, it does not address future wildlife invaders. By locating all points of animal entry and implementing repair and exclusion techniques, the chances for future animal infestation and damage are greatly reduced.

North Alabama Wildlife Removal will find every point of entry for unwanted animals, from raccoons in the attic to mice in the walls. Rats in ceilings or crawl space, bats in homes, mice in the attic and skunks under houses all get there because they’ve found a way in, and it’s our job to fix that. We implement our prevention strategies to ensure the elimination of recurrent wildlife invasions. We screen vents, install chimney caps and close entry holes, among other methods.

Animal Exclusion Points:


  • Chimney – Adding chimney caps and screening can prevent animals from falling in or nesting
  • Plumbing Vents – Animals seeking shelter can become stuck in plumbing pipes
  • Roof & Fascia Spaces – Poorly sealed points between roof & fascia invite animal entry
  • Roof Vents – Lightweight, flimsy vents should be replaced with heavy secure roof vents
  • Oven & Bathroom Exhaust Vents – Adding screening to vents helps keep animals out
  • Roof/Soffit Intersection – Securing gaps will help prevent animal chewing and entry
  • Holes in Siding – Repairing & reinforcing holes will discourage animal infestation
  • Porch & Deck – Durable screening around base prevents nesting animals
  • Trees & Landscaping – Removal of overhanging tree limbs and encroaching vegetation

While some wildlife appear small and harmless, it is important to remember there are many dangers associated with wild animals. From diseases and parasites to painful bites, a wildlife encounter can become a serious health risk. To protect yourself and your family, call a trained professional to inspect all wildlife issues.

Minor Repairs Prevent Major Damage


Minor repairs can prevent major damage. A small hole in your fascia board, attic vent, dormer gap or gable vent can allow flying squirrels, red squirrels, mice and bats into your home, where they can leave droppings, urine, fleas and ticks in your attic. Let a North Alabama Wildlife Removal specialist inspect your home and plug these entrance points before they become a larger issue.

Attic Insulation Services


The correct amount of attic insulation will help reduce your energy bills. Attics are one of the easiest places in a house to insulate, especially if you'd like to “cap” your existing attic insulation (add insulation to what you already have).

Before insulating or deciding whether to add attic insulation, visit the U.S. Department of Energy’s website, to see if your existing attic insulation measures up.  Chances are it doesn’t match-up to current government recommendations.

Upon request, our attic insulation specialists measure your existing attic insulation during our Animal Entry inspections and let you know if you need to add more insulation to match the U.S. Department of Energy’s guidelines. Many attic insulation materials can be difficult to work with. Let the professionals at North Alabama Wildlife Removal do your attic insulation installation. We can also remove attic insulation that has been soiled/damaged and dispose of it for you.

 

Warning: If you think you have vermiculite insulation in your attic, there's a chance it could contain asbestos. Don't disturb it. Only attic insulation contractors certified to handle and remove asbestos should deal with vermiculite insulation.

Here are some insulation tips to consider before installing any type of insulation in your attic:

  • Seal all attic-to-home air leaks. Most attic insulation does not stop airflow.
    • Duct exhaust fans to the outside. Use a tightly constructed box to cover fan housing on attic side. Seal around the duct where it exits the box. Seal the perimeter of the box to the drywall on attic side.
    • Cover openings—such as dropped ceilings, soffits, and bulkheads—into attic area with plywood and seal to the attic side of the ceiling.
    • Seal around chimney and framing with a high-temperature caulk or furnace cement.
    • At the tops of interior walls, use long-life caulk to seal the smaller gaps and holes. Use expanding foam or strips of rigid foam board insulation for the larger gaps.
  • Install blocking (metal flashing) to maintain fire-safety clearance requirements (usually 3 inches) for heat-producing equipment found in an attic, such as flues, chimneys, exhaust fans, and light housings/fixtures unless the light fixtures are IC (insulation contact) rated. IC-rated lights are airtight and can be covered with insulation.
  • Make sure insulation doesn't block soffit vents to allow for attic ventilation.
  • Check the attic ceiling for water stains or marks. They indicate roof leaks or lack of ventilation. Make repairs before you insulate. Wet insulation is ineffective and can damage your home.

Also insulate and air-seal your attic access if it's located in a conditioned part of the house. You'll want to properly insulate and air seal any knee walls—vertical walls with attic space directly behind them—in your home as well.

Finally, if you're constructing a new home or remodeling, make sure any attic decking, which provides additional storage space or a platform for an HVAC unit or hot water tank, is raised above the ceiling joists to ensure proper insulation depth. The decking then should be installed securely to the top of the raised lumber after the insulation has been installed.

Call the professionals at (256) 612-6058 for all your attic insulation needs.

Attic Restoration, Attic Repair & Chimney Repair Services


You removed the animals from the attic, but are you finished yet?

Nuisance wildlife in your attic can create problems many homeowners never think of. These animals can carry ectoparasites, which after the wildlife host is evicted, may move inside the home looking for a new host—YOU! Bat bugs, mites, ticks and fleas are just some of the ectoparasites you need to be concerned about. Mice in the attic, bats in the attic or various other vistors are notorious for bringing these pests in.

Ask our Wildlife Management Specialists to inspect your attic and treat for these critters, after your problem species is removed. Worried about pesticide use in your home? Just ask for our Eco-Wise™ brand of botanical pest control products and feel confident about the control products used under your roof.

And what about the droppings left behind in your attic? Is this something you want hanging above your head at night when you sleep? Raccoons are known for using a single spot in your home as a latrine, while using another part of your attic as their living area. This can lead to matted attic insulation and reduced “R” values, which means you continue to lose money as you continue to heat and cool your home. It can also lead to stained ceilings and unnecessary odors.

Let our attic restoration professionals remove that soiled insulation and replace it with your choice of insulation products. Our specialists can prepare insurance bids with most major insurance companies and get your attic back in shape in no time. From gutter protection, attic fan vent guards, roof vent guards, gable vent closures and soffit vent repairs, our team can do it all with one single call.

Many of these nuisance animals cause problems to your chimney as well and require professional chimney repair. For all of your attic insulation tips, attic repair, attic restoration and chimney repair needs, contact your local North Alabama Wildlife Removal office.

There are many reasons why it's better to just call an expert. Animal removal often involves unfamiliar tools and safety techniques that can be difficult for the inexperienced homeowner.
