Tequesta Animal Removal


Wildlife Exclusion

What animal(s) are we dealing with?

The  first step to a successful wildlife exclusion is to determine what  animal it is that is causing the problem.  Tufts Wildlife Services has  years of experience with this process.  We employ tactics such as  identifying footprints, feces, and the nature of the damage caused by  the animal.  Once we have determined what animal is causing you trouble  we will design a custom trapping and removal plan.

Trapping and Exclusion

This  is the part where we actually get rid of the animal that's making noise  in your attic or getting into your trash at night.  We employ interior  trapping methods in the case of rats.  In cases involving larger animals  such as squirrels, raccoons, opossums, armadillos, iguanas, ducks, and  snakes Tufts Wildlife Service Professionals will set and monitor live  traps on the exterior of the structure.  With Bats, Tufts Wildlife  Services will employ a passive removal tactic using a one-way valve to  ensure that no bats are killed or harmed during the removal process.  

During  the removal process we will seal and repair any entry points that may  allow nuisance animals to reenter your home.  The timing of the  exclusion work will vary with what type of animals we are removing.   Tufts Wildlife Services uses only high quality materials and methods to  help solve your nuisance animal problem for good.  We offer a one year  renewable warranty on exclusion work and stand by our ability to keep  nuisance animals out.

Sanitation Process

Once  this exclusion process is complete, Tufts Wildlife Services will  perform an attic sanitation.  During this service we will remove any and  all accessible feces and contaminants using a commercial grade vacuum  equipped with a HEPA filtration system to avoid the spread of spores,  bacteria, roundworm eggs, and other pathogens.  Tufts Wildlife Services  will then use a commercial atomizer to disperse hospital grade sanitizer  throughout your attic to kill any remaining bacteria.  This chemical is  safe and effective when it comes to removing potential health threats  as well as any scent trails or odors left behind by nuisance animals.   This sanitation process imperative to ensure that your home doesn't  have any residual odors and pheromone trails that may attract future  nuisance animals.


Dead Animal Removal

Are you noticing a nasty smell in your home?

One  of the less glamorous tasks undertaken by Tufts Wildlife Services is  locating and removing dead animals from your home and property.   Unfortunately, some animals find their way into your home and perish  before they can find their way back out for food and water.  We all know  how hot our attics get in Florida and you can only imagine how quickly  the decomposition process begins to take effect.  Trust us, you want the  situation resolved as quickly as possible.  Tufts Wildlife Services has  years of experience in physically locating and removing the dead animal  as well as cleaning and deodorizing the effected areas.  

On the exterior of your home

It  is all too common for dead animals to turn up in your yard or on your  property.  Unfortunately, sometimes sick animals will seek shelter  underneath a patio or porch and pass away.  Other times, an animal will  be injured by an automobile and pass away in your front yard or  property.  Tufts Wildlife Services will remove dead animals from the  exterior of your home and decontaminate the area where the body rested.

On the interior of your home

These  jobs can be tricky.  It is very difficult to locate a dead animal  inside a home.  Many times the animals will go to the deepest crevices  underneath the insulation in your attic to pass away.  Other times  rodents will fall into the gap within your walls and die of dehydration.   Tufts Wildlife Services prides itself on our ability to locate these  unfortunate animals and remove them from your home safely and  efficiently.    Once this corpse removal process is complete, Tufts  Wildlife Services will perform an attic sanitation.  During this service  we will remove any and all accessible contaminants using a commercial  grade vacuum equipped with a hepa filtration system to avoid the spread  of spores and bacteria.  Tufts Wildlife Services will then use a  commercial atomizer to disperse hospital grade sanitizer throughout your  attic to kill any remaining bacteria and rid your home of bad odors.   This chemical is safe and effective when it comes to removing potential  health threats as well as any odors left behind by deceased nuisance  animals.  


Attic Restoration

Insulation Removal

Unfortunately,  sometimes the damage to your insulation is just too great.  This is  usually the case in older homes with older insulation or in cases where  the nuisance animal infestation has been going on for a long time.  The  insulation may become totally saturated with animal urine and feces and  can not be salvaged.  It is also possible for animals to damage your  insulation beyond repair by chewing or nesting.  Tufts Wildlife Services  will safely and effectively remove damaged insulation either by hand or  using a commercial insulation vacuum.  Once the insulation and organic  material has been removed Tufts Wildlife Services will then fog out the  attic using a commercial atomizer to ensure that every surface of your  attic has been sanitized and is as clean as can be.

Insulation Replacement

If  you're in need of new insulation, look no further.  Tufts Wildlife  Services will remove any insulation damaged by nuisance animals, and  replace it with new insulation.  We can  perform what is called a blow  over (we'll add another few inches of fresh insulation over the existing  layer in order to bring your insulation levels to recommended  specifications).  Sometimes however, all of your existing insulation  must be removed and replaced with brand new insulation.  Whether it is  rolled fiberglass insulation, or blown in cellulose, Tufts Wildlife  Services can meet your needs and help keep your home cool in this  tropical weather.
