Beavers: Get Rid of Them Once and For All

humane wildlife control

At all detected points of access, our opossum removal professionals will trap or construct a one-way exclusion door. The opossums who are currently in your home will be able to simply leave, but they will not be able to return. It is critical that our team of professionals do a thorough investigation for any signs of newborns. If necessary, we may set traps at all access points on your roof or in your garage to remove opossums that will not give up their attempts to gain access to your home. Our team will seal up all entry points, remove all droppings, and replace tainted insulation once all opossums have been removed from your home.

Squirrels are rodents that belong to the rodent family. They can grow to be up to 18 inches long and weigh around a pound. Squirrels do not hibernate during the winter and remain active all year. They eat acorns and nuts that were buried in the autumn during the cold months, but they don't remember where they hid their food, contrary to popular perception. The food they find using their acute sense of smell was most likely hidden by another squirrel. The squirrel can find enough food to survive even if it is covered in snow.

While opossums are not considered harmful to humans until confronted, their presence and droppings in your home will emit a foul odor and may transmit disease and contaminants. As soon as you notice any evidence of a rodent or mammal infestation in your home, contact a professional wildlife removal service. Varment Guard Wildlife Services has been providing professional wildlife identification, removal, restoration, and exclusion services to the Fort Wayne community for over 20 years.

Trapping Tips

Also keep in mind that if you have a raccoon in your home right now, you may need to use a catch pole to capture the animal by the neck and place it in the trap. During this process, the raccoon is uninjured. It's critical to be forceful since a raccoon in your home can cause important damage. Raccoons can also become VERY violent when cornered, feel threatened, or fear their kids are in risk.

The Danger of Raccoons

You'll most likely smell a skunk before seeing one. They tend to leave a slight stench in the areas they frequent during the day, even if they do not spray in your yard. If you smell skunks in the late winter, it's conceivable that neighboring males are competing for female partners.


Round, shallow holes that are completely circular are another evidence of skunks on your property. Skunks are special in that they only dig deep enough to find grubs and other insects that live in the dirt. It's possible that they'll leave tracks in the loose earth. These footsteps resemble those of a cat, however they have five toes instead of four.

The Varment Guard concept has advocated for humane wildlife exclusion and environmentally responsible methods of dealing with nuisance wild animal issues since 1983. To deliver ecologically sound wildlife exclusion services, we use creative, integrated solutions. We collaborate with you to devise a strategy for eradicating and excluding the nuisance wildlife pest, preventing future animal infestations, and repairing animal damage. Our animal exclusion guarantee backs it up - "Our Repairs Keep Animals Out!" says Varment Guard.

We begin bat inspections by performing a thorough inspection of your home and property to identify all probable primary and secondary entry points. Many people believe that bats can only enter their home through an open window or through the chimney. This isn't always the case, though. Bats typically enter through soffit gaps, roof vents, loose or missing roof shingles, warped siding, and small cracks or breaches in brick walls as small as 1/2 inch. Bats can gain enter access to a home via the fascia board.

Skunk Burrows

If your home's entranceway is on fire, even the bravest raccoon will get the message, right? Regrettably, the answer is no. Raccoons may climb in rather than out when you open the damper. The good news is that there are several safe and effective methods for removing raccoons from chimneys, including using odor deterrents and placing a ground trap near the chimney's base. Our professionals have decades of experience and will handle everything for you, so you won't have to lift a finger or worry about making a costly error.
