Many of Indiana's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Indiana's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Protect your plants:
In order to protect plants in your garden, prefer to install some physical barriers by using fencing, plastic netting, and chicken wire. It can avoid squirrel attacks on your plants.

Change feeder location:
If you feed birds in your garden prefer to keep them far away from ground levels and tree branches. It is important to choose locations where squirrels cannot reach by jumping.

Experts advise using safflowers seeds instead of sunflower seeds to feed birds as squirrels do not like them.
