Many of Virginia'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 Virginia'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 Roanoke county animal services for assistance.

Cave Spring Wildlife Removal Tip: What is the best material to exclude pigeons?

There are so many products on the market that all seem more or less the same, but they vary greatly in price. The reason for this is that they quality of the products are not the same, you might be paying less for something, but you may have to replace it within the firsts few months. It is imperative to look at the material that has been used in manufacturing the product. There are materials available that might not be able to withstand the conditions in your area, be sure to keep this in mind before purchasing.

It is also important to take the aesthetics into consideration when you are deciding which material to use around your home. It is essential to protect your home from the disease that comes along with pigeons, but you don't want to destroy the fašade of your home in doing so. One of these examples is mesh netting, the same outcome will be reached if you use chicken wire instead of nylon, mesh netting. However, chicken wire is much less appealing to look at, not to mention harder to install. It might be a cheaper option if it is used in an area where nobody is going to see it, the decision would have to be made on a case by case basis. The netting has also been treated to withstand UV rays and will not need to be replaced as often as chicken wire, which will rust.

Needle strips are easy to make yourself, but it might not be as durable as the products that can be purchased from reputable dealers. It is possible to take a piece of wood and to hammer some nails into it, it will have the desired effect, but, apart from the fact that it will not be as nice to look at, the nails might also rust and the wood might start rotting after a while.

The commercial ones are also available in metal and plastic. The stainless-steel spikes are less conspicuous and will reflect sunlight, making it blend into the fašade of a building. It is, however, not rust proof, so in an area where rust would be a major concern, it would not be the best option. The plastic spikes are made of a polycarbonate material that makes it stronger and less expensive than the metal ones. It is available in a variety of colors and can be used to enhance the image of your business instead of just blending in.

The metal spikes are usually larger in size than the plastic options, meaning that you would need less to cover your surface.

When it comes to holes that allow bird access to your house, there are a variety of options when it comes to closing it. The ideal being closing it permanently, instead of purchasing tape that promises to do the same job. It is safer to do it right the first time.
