Wildlife removal service technicians are responsible for ensuring the safety of both people and animals when dealing with wildlife. To ensure the safety of all involved, technicians must follow a set of protocols and guidelines. This includes using occupational hazard analysis, HOC, standard precautions, personal protective equipment, and workplace safety protocols. It is also important to follow state and local guidelines for fall protection equipment, as well as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) vehicle safety laws and regulations.
When it comes to removing wildlife, there are certain methods that can be dangerous and create safety problems. Regulations on wildlife control methods are in place to make them safer for people, animals, and the environment. Traps must be placed correctly to avoid capturing or injuring the wrong animal, and toxicants must be used with caution to avoid contamination of water, soil, and air. The first step in removing animals from a home or business is to identify them properly.
In some cases, technicians may be able to remove the animals by hand. However, this is not always safe or appropriate. To answer the question of how long it will take to eliminate wildlife, it is important to understand the processes and methods of removal. When conducting a CritterSafe inspection, technicians look for signs of animal infestation such as excrement, rubbing marks, and damage to animals.
If a wildlife problem has been identified, it is necessary to positively identify the species involved, the magnitude of the damage, if there are young animals present, and what humane animal removal management procedures can be used to resolve the problem on a permanent basis. Exclusion services provide the only permanent solution to a wildlife problem. It can be difficult to eliminate certain animals immediately, so there is usually a process to eliminate them. Hiring a private wildlife removal company is often the best option as they will catch the animal, bait it, check it every day during the designated capture period, and take any animals they catch.
Since 1983, Critter Control has been providing annoying wildlife control services to homeowners, businesses and municipalities using humane animal control techniques and environmentally responsible methods. By following these protocols and guidelines, technicians can ensure that all involved remain safe during wildlife removal.
