Humane Animal Removal

Here at Heron, the safety and happiness of our customers is of the utmost importance. When a wild animal or rodent inhabits your home, attic, crawl space or shed, it’s not something to be taken lightly, it should be handled with rapid response. This is because not only are wild animals unpredictable but they also can wreak havoc on your home, costing you thousands of dollars in repairs.

Did you know that wildlife and rodents will use attic and wall insulation, debris from outdoors and even live electrical wires that are running through the house, to turn your attic into their home? Not to mention that wildlife and rodents can also carry a variety of zoonotic diseases, can be infested with fleas and ticks and can also leave behind pounds of feces in the places they were nesting which can be very toxic to humans and pets if inhaled or digested.

For these reasons and many others, it is important that if you notice a wild animal or rodent living on your property, to leave the animal alone and to call a professional wildlife technician immediately to handle the problem. If you do have reason to believe there is an animal on your property or if you have seen an animal, Heron Pest and Wildlife Solutions will be more than happy to visit your home and perform a FREE inspection to safely check for any animal activity and to carry out any further necessary action.

What types of animals do you remove?

We remove Armadillos, bats, birds, bobcats, feral cats, moles, opossums, raccoons, rodents, skunks, snakes and squirrels.

How do you remove the animal?

If an animal is found living on your property, one of our highly trained and licensed wildlife removal professionals will either remove the animal by hand or if he/she cannot find the animal at that time, they will set up a trap to capture the animal when it comes back to its hiding space. Usually, animals such as raccoons or opossums will leave their nesting area at night and early morning, in search of food but will return when the sun rises.

If a trap needs to be set, our technicians will come by every day to check the trap until the animal is caught.

If a trap is left at your home and you notice an animal was trapped inside, please call our office immediately and our technician will come by to pick up the animal.

What do you do with the animal that is captured?

If the animal is in good condition, we will release it at a safe, wildlife release area. If the animal is sick or rabid, other steps will be taken.

What do you do with baby or hurt animals?

Heron pest and wildlife has partnered up with local wildlife rehabilitation organizations that will accept any hurt or orphaned baby animals that we find. When the animal is well enough to be released back into the wild, the rehabilitators will release the animal at a safe release area. Read more about our animal relocation and rehabilitation.

Does Heron offer follow up cleaning?

Yes we do. After an animal is removed from the premises, our licensed and trained technician will remove any feces that is left behind as well as any damaged insulation or materials that we find. We will then thoroughly sanitize and deodorize the area to eradicate and decontaminate any zoonotic diseases, such as round worm, salmonella or hantavirus and foul odors that may be present. Read more on zoonotic diseases and dangers to humans.

If fleas and ticks are found in the home we can also provide a pest control option. Read more on our pest control procedures.

If damage is found in the attic insulation, we can also offer insulation replacement. Read more on our insulation replacement.

Does Heron guarantee their work?

Yes, we offer a 1 year total guarantee on any of our exclusion work and repairs. If any of the work that was completed by us fails or is ever compromised in the future, we will come out and re-repair that work, free of charge to the homeowner.
