Bats usually get a bad wrap and are called creepy, scary and spooky. However, they’re an important species in our ecosystem that impacts our daily lives in ways we might not even realize. From pollinating our favorite fruits to eating pesky insects like mosquitos to inspiring medical break throughs, bats are heroes in many ways.
But.. When they enter our homes and begin to destroy property. That can become a costly problem for both home owners and insurance companies. To add even more complexity to a bat infestation they are a federally protected species.
We will help you navigate those waters and make an informed decision by providing a detailed plan on how we successfully remove and prevent them from returning to your home.

Raccoons, a.k.a "Trash Pandas", can find their way into your attic to have their offspring. While creating a safe space for their young, they can cause damage to your siding, soffits, gutters, and contaminate insulation.
If they are not properly controlled, groundhogs can cause major structural damage to your home or business when burrowing. They can also chew through electrical lines and other pipes.
