On-site release method is a proven method that relies on ensuring the den or nesting site is no longer a viable or accessible location for the problem animal. Once measures have been taken, the animal will simply reloacte on their own. This prevents wildlife from suffering in an unfamiliar environment and undue stress. Professionals will adjust their removal strategy based on the known breeding cycles of the species. Raccoons, possums, skunks, and squirrels regularly make use of warm human spaces to rear their brood. The presence of young requires special care by wildlife removal specialists. Once the mother has been removed from her den, a heated baby box may be installed to assist natural relocation. After the exclusion is complete, Awesome Possum will illustrate vulnerable access points to homeowners to prevent re-entry.
Animal Psychology is largely utilized in Humane Pest Control. Understanding how an animal behaves gives specialist tools to create a situation that is undesirable to a problem animal. For example, rather than trapping and relocating an animal – ensuring that it’s chosen location is no longer available to it will encourage the animal to find a new home. We know wild animals are not intentional trouble-makers, they are simply resourceful and driven by survival.
