The Importance of Wildlife Exclusion & Remediation for Property Managers

Bat inside attic

Large residential properties and commercial buildings are full of empty nooks and spaces that can start to look pretty cozy to wildlife this time of year.

While property managers are busy taking care of the human-occupied areas of their buildings, overlooked spaces and gaps can be quickly colonized by winged and furry tenants who can wreak havoc on insulation, wooden beams, wiring and more – not to mention the mess they leave behind.

Keeping them out is not a job for amateurs. Bats can find their way into openings as small as 3/8” and raccoons are notoriously adept at exploiting the smallest breaches. Birds, mice, squirrels and other rodents are also likely sizing up the amenities your building has to offer.

Evicting them and discouraging their return is a job left to wildlife professionals with plenty of experience and an arsenal of tools and strategies.

2. Wildlife Removal: Using humane methods, the intruding wildlife is removed from the premises.

3. Repairing Damage: This might involve replacing damaged insulation, mending broken beams, or fixing chewed wires.

4. Cleaning and Sanitizing: Removing droppings, nests, and other waste materials followed by thorough sanitization.

Essential Advice for Property Managers: The Do’s & Don’ts

If you suspect you have wildlife in your building, it’s crucial not to take matters into your own hands. While it may be tempting to try and tackle the issue on your own, there are certain things you should NEVER do:

  • Avoid DIY Clean-Up: Wildlife droppings can harbor harmful diseases. Cleaning without the proper equipment and knowledge can expose you to health risks.
  • Do Not Handle Wild Animals: Always hire a professional when trapping or handling wildlife. From rabies to other diseases, wild animals – especially when frightened – can pose a serious risk to the health and safety of building occupants.
  • Mothballs Aren’t the Answer: Contrary to popular belief, placing mothballs won’t deter wildlife and can pose a threat to humans. Save your time and resources and contact a professional instead.
