Why You Should Leave the Wildlife Removal Job to the Professionals

Imagine the scene: it is dark, you have just gone to bed, and you are in this pleasant state of half-dream, when suddenly, you hear a loud noise near your garage. Naturally, you jump, fully awake now, and gaze timidly out the window. You see something small and furry scurrying near the trash cans. Maybe even jostle them a bit. Causing a general uproar.

What are you doing?

Do you…

a. Call Critter Capture Jackson or other local wildlife removal professional;


b. Trying to get out and take care of the wild creature yourself?

If the answer was, very well done. If that was b, then read on, because you have a lot to learn.

Why do people try to remove wildlife themselves?

Many people will look at a wild animal and wonder what’s the matter? I’ll just go out there and get rid of it myself. But that’s easier said than done. It’s tempting to think that you can take care of a wild animal yourself, especially when you consider it saves money (the main reason people try DIY).

But that’s just brain tricks, so to speak. Do-it-yourself wildlife removal is largely inefficient and very rarely ends up saving a dollar or two. The only time you should try to remove wildlife yourself is when you really have no chance of getting a professional hunter to come to your house fast enough.

Why hire a professional…

● Do-it-yourself does not save money.

First, we mentioned that eliminating wildlife on your own does not save money, and we would like to clarify that. The idea here is that you buy your own trapping equipment and end up saving money. In theory, of course. But in practice, you’ll need more than just a live trap to sort out your wildlife situation.

If you are attempting to remove wildlife yourself, you will need to purchase:

  • Trapping equipment;
  • Cleaning supplies;
  • individual protection equipment ;
  • Damage repair equipment.

And all for a chance to perhaps solve the problem. When you add it all up and add the stress of trying to remove it yourself, you find it’s much faster and easier to hire a professional.

● Guaranteed efficiency.

A wildlife removal professional comes with a 100% guarantee that they will remove the animal from your property. Not only that, but they will also assess the situation to determine what attracted the animal there in the first place. They will advise you on future prevention and clean up the mess left by the wild animal.

When you call a wildlife removal professional, of course, you pay a little more. But at the same time, you are paying on the assurance that at the end of the procedure your home will be free of pests. This cannot be said about DIY removal.

● They are better informed.

One of the main reasons why you should hire a professional wildlife removal company is that they know all the common types of wildlife pests in your region. And they know what to do with it. Think about it. A wildlife removal professional probably has years of experience removing opossums, or rats, or any other creature that might bother you. That means, for them, it’s a quick in and out job that won’t take too much time or hassle.

On your end, you will need to do extensive research to make sure you fully understand the type of animal lurking, the risks associated with it, and the best way to remove it. It’s a lot of research and a lot of wasted time.

● They will also do the cleaning.

It’s true. Any good wildlife removal service offers catering and cleaning services, either as part of their wildlife removal practice or at an additional cost. This means that they will remove all toxic droppings and urine left behind by the wild animal on your property. They will also repair the damage caused by the intruder, so that the inhabited area is habitable again.

● It’s safer that way.

Handling wild animals should not be taken lightly as they carry many serious diseases, bacteria, etc. Not to mention that when you try to trap a wild animal, it is more than likely to be scared and defensive. In this case, he may try to scratch, bite or sting you, thus infecting you with a number of bacteria.

A wildlife removal professional knows how to handle a wild animal so that everyone is safe and bacteria-free. They will also know how to approach the situation, without causing further damage to the property itself.

For all the above reasons, we recommend find an animal exterminator near you, or better yet, a humane wildlife removal service. Why waste all that time, energy, and money and risk an infection, when you could just hire a professional to take care of it?
