Pest control firms are professional companies that provide services that include removal of pests from your property, either home or office. Pests that are taken care for by these firms are usually: wasps, bees, bedbugs, cockroaches, spiders, ants, and other insects and bugs. Basically, pest control companies primarily deal with insects and not with mammal wildlife animals.
In this sense, pest control companies will come and check out your home or office to find out nests of pests, they will remove them and protect your home with appropriate solutions so that your home or office is protected from further pest attacks. When pest company does this, it is also important to keep in mind that one should keep all entrances seal shut and keep all possible attractions away (i.e. keep food in the fridge and containers, for example).
With all the aforementioned said, it is evident that one can’t expect from Pest Company to remove groundhog or any other wildlife animal, for that matter. If you need groundhog removed from your home, you will need to call professional wildlife company. Such company is state licensed for the groundhog removal from your property- as well as removal of other wildlife animals.
Groundhog removal is definitely something that professionals should do and not guys from pest company. This is because Wildlife Company has appropriate tools and knowledge to remove groundhog (and not harm it during the process). Professionals from wildlife company will remove groundhog quickly, without any unnecessary harm or stress for the animal or you and your family.
Wildlife company professionals will inspect your property for groundhog den and make sure that animal that needs to be removed isn’t mother with small babies-because removal of such animal would mean starvation and death of babies, and professionals will never let that happen. In such case, they will postpone removal for another months or so, just to make sure that babies are grown enough to care for themselves (and to be able to remove them along with the mother, too).
Wildlife Company is the one that will handle groundhog problem, so be sure to contact them and not the pest company.
