Trapping VS Exclusion

Trapping everyone’s first choice, this is because its what we are familiar with.

1. First, set a trap, then pick up the trap when the animal is in it. Sounds simple, its not.  Many animals must be destroyed when they are trapped. Killed for no reason other than the walked into a trappers’ trap. Its the law and it is enforced.

a. Now lets think about number 1. Setting a trap doesn’t guarantee you will catch an animal. You will still have to pay someone to set the trap.  Then, will the trap catch the target animal? Not always, then more money out of your pocket.

b. Lets say, trap set, animal caught, and entrance on hole closed up. Seems like common sense, well think if  you caught another animal (raccoon), and then  you had the entrance hole on your house closed. Now the same animal is locked inside of the building.

c. Many times, I get calls that the trapper or lately pest control service caught the animal and took it away, and now they hear animals still in the attic. This can fall under the above statement b, or the service took a lactating female away, Killed it, and now her babies are sure to die. Not to mention all the ceiling or walls that have to be cut open to retrieve the babies.  Had Enough Of Trapping Yet ?

2. Exclusion provides an solution to these animal nightmare situations.   Exclusion places a 1 way exit device on the animal entrance, allows the animal or animals to exit, then seals the entrance / exit. Preventive Sealing, Flawless Victory. 

a. No Killing an animal just because it went into a trap.

b. No Non Target Animal Charges.

c. Single Fee For Animal Removal, Not A Repeat Customer.

Raccoons are powerful animals, if left alone this raccoon will tear the metal trap to pieces.  Raccoons frequentally tear your shingles and wood on your roof to gain access to your attic.

There are 30 sub species of raccoons, the variety in the florida keys weigh around 10 lbs while the north east variety weigh in at upwards of 25lbs. In the southern most regions raccoons can have 2 litters a year while the northern only have one litter a year with 2-6 per litter. in the winter months when the temperature goes below 32 degrees the raccoons will stay denned up and wait for it to warm up.
