How many squirrels, raccoons, and bats do I have in my home?
It is always difficult to tell how many of a species are occupying your home. We perform a detailed inspection of your home and follow this a trapping plan or exclusion plan.
Are you going to trap all of the animals in the neighborhood?
No. We at Stewart Pest Solutions directly target the animal or animals causing the damage to your home. Some companies will just place traps around your property just to catch anything they can. This is wrong and gives our industry a black eye.
Will you catch the critter tonight?
It is very possible to catch an animal the first night but often animals are trap shy or simply just not home. Squirrels will often use the same denning areas but have often shown reluctance to enter a trap the first night. Raccoons, woodchucks, skunks may take several days to return to the damage site before being caught.
I think I have 1 woodchuck (groundhog), am I correct in thinking that?
Many clients believe that they are only dealing with 1 woodchuck. Stewart Pest Solutions has found that woodchucks will use the same den location for several days and then leave for another den site. Then another woodchuck may just move in. I have personally witnessed this in my own yard by watching how wildlife behaves so I can best serve my clients.
Do I have grubs in my yard if I have moles?
Yes this is true but you generally have a healthy yard. A vast majority of a moles diet is worms.
Do bats eat mainly mosquitoes?
No, mosquitoes (female) hang out near the ground waiting for a blood meal. Bats mainly eat moths, beetles, and other insects flying high in the air. If you have ever deer hunted from a tree you will notice that you can often climb out of the way of most mosquitoes.
How do you know?
I love dealing with wildlife and you always will learn something new. I have been in the construction trades for a good bit of my life and have been chasing all kinds of animals since I could chase them with a stick. I always will learn new things and see different ways animals will exploit your home. I, along with anyone who represents my company, will do their best for any client. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us by calling, texting or using one of our various forms to get a hold of us. We will do our best to get back to you in an efficient manner!
