  • Wildlife

    • What are the potential dangers associated with wildlife intrusions?
      Wildlife intrusions in Brighton, MI can bring several risks and dangers. They can cause property damage by chewing through wires and structures, leading to fire hazards and costly repairs. Wildlife can also transmit diseases like rabies, leptospirosis, and histoplasmosis, posing health risks. Allergens from animal droppings can trigger allergies and respiratory issues. Aggressive behavior and ecological imbalances are additional concerns. Promptly addressing wildlife intrusions with the help of a professional wildlife control company, such as First Choice Pest Control, minimizes these risks, ensuring trouble-free and effective removal while protecting your property, health, and local ecosystem.
    • How can I determine if I have a wildlife problem on my property?
      There are several signs to watch for that may indicate the presence of wildlife pests. Keep an ear out for strange noises like scratching, scurrying, or chirping sounds, particularly in the attic, walls, or crawl spaces. Property damage, such as chewed wires, torn insulation, or holes in walls, can also be indicative of wildlife activity. Pay attention to any persistent foul odors resembling urine or feces, as some animals mark their territory with strong-smelling secretions. Look for droppings or urine stains and tracks or footprints near your property, especially in muddy areas, as these can help identify the type of wildlife present. Lastly, visual sightings of wildlife, such as raccoons, squirrels, or skunks, during daylight hours when they are typically more active, may suggest an infestation.
    • How can I prevent wildlife issues on my property?

      Preventing future wildlife issues on your property in Brighton, MI is crucial. Here are some tips:

      • Secure waste and food sources by sealing garbage cans and removing fallen fruits or pet food.
      • Seal entry points to your property to keep wildlife out.
      • Trim vegetation near your home to discourage animals from accessing it.
      • Install fences around vulnerable areas like gardens and decks.
      • Secure attic vents and chimney openings with screens or covers.
      • Keep your yard clean and tidy by removing clutter and debris.

      Taking these steps can significantly reduce the likelihood of wildlife intrusions. For professional assistance, contact First Choice Pest Control to prevent and resolve wildlife issues on your property. We're your go-to for effective wildlife and home pest control in Brighton.
