The Need for Wildlife Management in Alabama

Squirrels made a mess in an attic in Anniston, Alabama

Both humans and wild animals have a lot of needs in common. Among these are our needs for places to live, and for food to eat.

The problem, from a critter's point of view, is that as human populations grow, our cities and suburbs spread to make room for all those additional people. This often means cutting down forests and otherwise encroaching upon the lands that the animals once had pretty much all to themselves.

What this means is that the places where the wild critters and the human critters live, work, and play start overlapping each other; and wild animals start looking for places to live and food to eat closer and closer to human folks.

To make matters worse, once they move into our neck of the woods, the critters start getting more and more comfortable among humans -- comfortable enough, in fact, that they start moving into our homes and other buildings. And although the animals might not mind sharing, when wild critters get into our homes and property, they can cause major problems.

What kind of problems? Well, it depends a lot on the specie of animal. Squirrels or rats, for example, cause different kinds of damage than raccoons or birds. But in general, having wild animals in your home present the following kinds of problems:

Damage. Almost any animal that gets into your home is going to cause some kind of damage to your house itself and/or to personal property that you have stored away. For example, rodents in your attic will gnaw away at pretty much anything you have stored up there.

Health risks. Most animals can have a role in transmitting diseases through their urine, droppings, and shed parasites.

Animal Attacks. Some animals, like raccoons, may attack if they're startled. This could happen if, for example, you or someone in your family goes up into the attic to get something stored up there and comes across a raccoon that you didn't know was living in the attic.

Messiness. You would think that animals living in your attic rent-free would have the courtesy to take care of the place, at least. But they don't. They gnaw and scratch at things, build nests, and poop and pee all over the place. (That's why our available animal-removal services also include cleaning up the mess that the critters left behind.)

Increased Risk of Fires. Rats, mice, and squirrels living in your attic or in the walls of your home often create fire hazards by gnawing the insulation off electrical wires, leaving the conductors inside exposed.

Nonetheless, despite the problems that they cause, animals are part of our natural world. As such, they deserve to be treated humanely and with respect. After all, it's not their fault that their habitats are being reduced by human expansion.

That's why at Rid-A-Critter, we make it a point to handle every animal control situation as humanely as possible. This includes:
