Bats

Bats are especially active during the summer months; while they’re helpful in getting rid of mosquitoes, they can cause health issues if they get into your house. Bats are sometimes carriers of rabies, as well as their droppings being a health hazard for you and your family.

Squirrels

Flying or grey squirrels can get into your attic and cause wreak havoc on wiring, insulation, air conditioning ducts and heat ducts. These can be fire risks, so look out for chew marks on your roof or woodwork.

Birds

Starlings and woodpeckers are both common nuisances to homes. Starlings tend to nest in bathroom exhaust vent ducts and dryer ducts, which blocks air flow and is also a fire hazard. Woodpeckers tap on structures to defend their territory and can cause damage to your home.

Opossums

More common during the spring or summer, opossums often enter your home through the crawl spaces and burrow under heating or air conditioning units. They can do plenty of damage to the insulation, subfloor joists, air ducts and more. Opossums bite, so call in an expert to take care of the issue.
