Let's Talk About Nuisance Wildlife In Waltham


A fun adventure is taking your children or grandchildren to the zoo. Nothing is more enjoyable than watching their eyes light up at the sight of a giraffe or hearing them squeal with excitement as they watch the monkeys swing from branch to branch. Watching wildlife in the zoo is entertaining; what is not enjoyable is wildlife on your Waltham property.

If wildlife has invaded your property, you need the best pest control in Waltham, Assurance Pest Solutions. For over 40 years, we have solved pest and wildlife issues using environmentally safe and effective wildlife control methods. We will stop wildlife from turning your property into a mini zoo!

The Types Of Wildlife That Typically Invade Properties

The zoo is full of wildlife you will not find in Waltham yards (e.g., monkeys, tigers, and lions); instead, you will find these wild animals: 

  • Squirrels
  • Skunks
  • Bats
  • Opossums
  • Raccoons
  • Chipmunks
  • Moles
  • Voles

Some wild animals in Waltham, like bats and opossums, are visible only at night, while squirrels, skunks, and raccoons are daytime nuisances. Experts from Assurance Pest Solutions wildlife control services know how to remove these animals from your property.

Are Wildlife Infestations Common For Waltham Properties?

We offer wildlife removal services because wildlife infestations are common in our area. On the ground level, many homeowners experience invasions by raccoons who enter their property searching for food and shelter. If the house is not protected, the raccoons enter homes and take up residence in the attic, walls, ducts, stairs, and other areas.

Under the ground, moles destroy the aesthetics of many yards in Waltham with their tunnels, and these tunnels create inviting environments for other wildlife like voles.

In the trees, squirrels are another common animal in many Waltham yards. Like raccoons, squirrels invade homes by entering through unprotected attic openings. Although not seen during the daytime, bats frequent the space above Waltham homes and nest in sheds, trees, and barns. 

Natural Ways To Deter Wildlife From Your Yard

Wildlife is a part of our ecosystem, but they are not part of the environment we want around our homes. The best way to ensure wildlife and pest control around your Waltham home is to do the following:

  • Keep outdoor garbage cans tightly sealed.
  • Elevate bird feeders on a pole and keep them away from trees.
  • Remove pet food from the yard.
  • Treat the yard for insects.
  • Eliminate clutter from the property.
  • Use protective wire around your garden and berry bushes.
  • Trim trees and bushes away from the house.
  • Seal small openings in the foundation.
  • Place screens over the attic and soffit vents and chimneys.
  • Provide adequate drainage to ditches, puddles, and gutters. 

You want to remove all enticements to your property and close potential entry points into your home because wildlife on your property puts your family at risk for diseases and your home at risk for damage. Implement these tips to discourage wildlife from invading your Waltham property and avoid potential problems.

The Safest Way To Deter Nuisance Wildlife In Waltham

Taking steps to deter wildlife will help with future invasions, but if you have wild animals on your property, you need professional wildlife removal from Assurance Pest Solutions. We will inspect your property and home to determine the type of problematic animals using indicators like droppings, burrows, and damaged areas.

Once our wildlife experts identify the animal, we will implement a custom strategy using one-way doors, humane live traps, and positive set traps to capture and remove the wildlife. To prevent wildlife from invading in the future, we use wire screening and rolled sheet metal to seal off entry points. Assurance Pest Solutions has decades of experience in safe, humane wildlife removal. Contact us today to schedule an inspection and get started on our effective wildlife control services in Waltham.
