Popular movies often show exterminators fighting against waves of bugs and spiders, sometimes even behemoth creepy-crawlies. But the job of a pest controller entails much more than donning coveralls and using insect spray against the bugs of the world. Rural homeowners often battle pests such as raccoons and feral cats, as well as the traditional ants and mice. Now you know that bugs are only a small part of controlling pests, you may want to consider some of the other animals the pest management teams can help you remove from your yard.

Big Critters

Anyone living on the edge of town understands that raccoons can be a huge problem. They love to scatter garbage, harass pets, and build nests in outbuildings or chimneys. Depending on where you live, coyotes, deer, moles, alligators, snakes, bears, and skunks can also be problems for rural homeowners. Whether the situation is about deer eating your strawberries or apple trees, alligators nesting in your swimming pool, or moles tearing up your garden, a pest control system is often the only way to deter these big critters from invading your yard all year long.

Little Pests

Depending on the area in which you live, ants, wasps, mice, gophers, rabbits, and rats can all be a problem for farmers, homeowners, and even apartment dwellers. Calling in a pest removal team is the best way to prevent the little nuisances from trying to take over your home. Not only are the tiny irritants a headache to deal with, they often fight back with huge numbers on their side.

Whether you are dealing with raccoons in your attic, rabbits in your shed, or troublesome snakes in your garbage can, if the Division of Wildlife does not deal with the critters invading your yard, a pest control team can help you remove them. The team can also inform you of area laws surrounding the animals, because some of them may be endangered.
