  • We Can Solve It!
Many of North Carolina'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 North Carolina's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Cherokee county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Murphy animal control for wildlife issues.

Murphy Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Mothballs Or Ammonia Help Repel Bats?

Mothballs and ammonia are another 'one product cures all' types of repellent which are said to work on any rodent or mammal. But the truth is that mothballs and ammonia do not work at all. They do not keep the bats away. Whenever people spot bats in the house, the first solution they go for is to use mothballs. They put a lot of mothballs in the attic hoping that it would keep the bat away. But the very next day they clearly see that their method failed.

You can easily see that mothballs are not only advertised in case of bat problems. Even if you have a squirrel, raccoon or a mouse problem, you would be suggested to use mothballs. These products are truly bogus and just a waste of money.

The other type of repellent which most people use is ammonia soaked rags. They are also believed to work like mothballs. It is assumed that they will create unnecessary bad odour for the bats which would force them to leave the place.

All these solutions would actually work on insects. But bats are mammals. Unlike insects on which you could easily use insecticides and get rid of them, mammals are not that easy to get rid of. Just imagine if you would smell a bad odour in your house, would you leave it and find a next one? The same is the case for bats. A slight bad odour for a limited amount of time is not motivational enough for them to leave your place (which they might think as their new home).

The same is the case for electronic sound devices which guarantee to keep the bats away. They are of no use at all but sometimes people buy dozens of them and still see no solution. So it is better to not go for a cheap and easy fix for your problem. It would be a waste of your money and wouldn't help you in getting rid of the bat at all. Instead stop thinking that these products are magic and go for professional help to get rid of the bats.

Professional bat catchers have a lot of experience in what they do and they will do the job in a really easy and effective manner. Once the bats are removed, all the entry points should also be sealed so that they do not enter again. After that all their droppings should be removed so that it doesn't create any bio hazard for the people present in the house. All of the above tasks cannot be done by any amateur and thus would require a professional to do it.
