How Does Wildlife Get In Your Home?

Oct 5, 2022 | Uncategorized

Georgia is home to a variety of beautiful creatures. But, sometimes those creatures like to invade our spaces, including our homes. In this blog post, we will discuss why these animals love our homes and the different ways these amazing creatures can take over our homes, sometimes without us noticing.

First, let’s discuss why animals come into our homes in the first place. Most animals are simply looking for shelter but they can also be looking for food and water. All of those things can be found in your home and seem like an open invitation to these animals. This causes animals to stick around for months, possibly years without someone noticing.

Next, let’s discuss the different ways an animal can get into your home. One main way an animal can get into your home is through the Chimney. Yes, just like Santa Claus does. The main animals that can do this are raccoons and squirrels. Bats can also go in your chimney but they tend to stay in it and live there. A way that you can prevent this from happening is by having a cover over your chimney. This will prevent the animals from being able to enter.

Another way an animal can get into a home is by Roof Vents. Roof Vents are an open invite to any animal. Roof Vents attract animals in the wintertime because of the warm air coming from them. They feel the warm air and automatically head towards it and eventually get into it and your home. A way to prevent this from happening is to get a roof vent guard that will cover the whole vent.

Now, let’s discuss what to do if it is too late. Let’s say you hear something making noise in your attic one day and you realize that you don’t have places like your chimney or roof vent covered. It could be an animal infestation. You need to contact Attic Kings. We specialize in over 13 different animal removal procedures and we never use poison so that your family is safe.
