If you have bats in your attic, or squirrels in your shed, it’s time to call in an expert and evict them.
Indiana’s most common nuisance animals, including raccoons, groundhogs and voles, can inflict serious damage on structures – and threaten human health.
Removing wild animals from a commercial or residential property should always be left to professionals. Handling wildlife can be dangerous and, in Indiana, it is illegal to trap or remove many species without a permit under Indiana Department of Natural Resources (INDNR) regulations.
Trapping is one of the most effective – and humane – ways to remove animals from properties. Professionally done, trapping protects both humans and wildlife. Trapping reduces the risk of harm animals can pose to themselves in manmade environments and enables their safe relocation to their natural habitats.
How To Recognize Wildlife Intrusion in Your Building
If you think a pest has moved into your property, look for the following common signs:
- Sebum or oil marks on the walls, floorboards or surrounding holes
- Scratch or bite marks on surfaces
- Unpleasant smells including must, ammonia and urine
- Strange scratching or squeaking noises coming from the walls or under floorboards
- The presence of droppings
How Trapping Works
Once a pest has been identified and located, a licensed trapper will capture and relocate the animal to a safe habitat, away from commercial and residential properties.
Under INDNR regulations, it is illegal for individuals without a permit to trap or remove federally protected species, including many common nuisance animals. Unlicensed individuals should never attempt to trap animals on their own. It’s dangerous and, in many cases, illegal.
