Santa has come and gone. All the presents has been dispersed and opened. The leftovers from the holiday ham and turkey dinner has finally been consumed. Family members had left and the holiday decorations are now put away. This is the opportunity to lay on the couch with a cup of coffee or tea in hand and catch up on Netflix movies. However, while the movie is playing, a scene shows an actor come across nuisance pests within their home which reminds you about the droppings you came across while getting all the Christmas presents down to put under the tree.
During the Christmas rush, many homeowners stack their purchases of gifts in certain areas of the home which does not have a lot of traffic. The only time this area is visited is when more gifts need to be hid or those gifts need to be brought out of hiding. A majority of the time, an area that doesn't have much traffic is the perfect spot for nuisance wildlife pests to take residence to. Unfortunately, the home becomes overtaken by nuisance pests.
Squirrels, raccoons, and bats like to inhabit the attic area. Squirrels and raccoons can tear open the outside soffit, vents, or even the roofing material to enter the
home. The damage that can be done could costs in the thousands once inside. They can tear up air ducts, pipes, wires, insulation and anything else they can either chew with their teeth or claw with their razor sharp claws. Once wires are exposed, there is a potential for a fire which can be a catastrophic loss. Air ducts and insulation can be costly to replace once a nuisance pest gets done with it.
Mice will cause damage within your home and the longer the infestation goes, the more costly and potential permanent damage could take place. These little pests build their nests and feed themselves by chewing on anything they consider will be useful. The damage could be from clothes, paper, wood and even wires. They are also known to chew up drywall and insulation throughout your home. Anywhere a mouse goes there is the potential of them leaving their urine and feces in that area.
Not only is there the damage nuisance pests cause, but there's also a diseases they can potentially carry. Raccoons, squirrels, bats and other wildlife pests feces have an unpleasant odor that your guest can smell. However, raccoons feces can cause problems in human's lungs which can be fatal. There's also mold that can grow on all the insulation the nuisance pests use a bathroom stall.
