Fairfield, Alabama, has its fair share of the critter population. As Alabama’s “Old city going in a new direction,” the people of Fairfield enjoy good old-fashioned Southern hospitality, but not for unwanted pests in their homes.
The wildlife critters found in Fairfield are bold and will come right in when given the opportunity. Please keep reading to learn about some of the pests we at Covenant Wildlife Removal have encountered and removed from homes.
The Pesky Critters of Fairfield
If you live in Fairfield, Alabama, you know there are many wooded areas, mountains, and some swamps. There is a perfect habitat for most any type of animal, insect, or other wildlife to thrive. This accommodating environment is excellent for a wildlife removal company, but not so ideal for Fairfield residents.
We know that keeping critters out of your home and yard is a constant battle. That is why we, at Covenant, are here to help. You may see all sorts of animals in Fairfield, including mice, rats, raccoons, opossums, beavers, feral hogs, snakes, and even alligators.
Due to protection regulations, some of these animals must be trapped and relocated. But that is not your concern when you call the professionals at Covenant. We know just which ones can be put down and which need safe and humane relocation.
Insect and Spider Pests
He creepy-crawly pests are often what give homeowners the biggest fright. Many of these are very dangerous and pose a real threat. Fleas, cockroaches, mosquitos, and termites all either carry disease or do significant damage to your home. No one in Fairfield wants that. Regular spraying helps keep these pests at bay.
But the real concern is what lurks in the outdoor shed, under the house, and in the woodpile. One bite from a black widow, brown widow, or a brown recluse will send you to the hospital with intense pain or possible worse. Then there are the four kinds of ticks found in this part of Alabama. And, if that wasn’t enough, there are bees, yellow jackets, red wasps, and hornets swarming around ready to protect their hives. Add in some fire ants and a few scorpions, and it’s a wonder we go outside at all.
Predatory Wildlife Pests
It is a well known and widely feared fact that hungry predatory animals will come lurking around for food. That food may include your family pet. Coyotes, wolves, and panthers will eat pets and any other animal they can get. Chickens, rabbits, geese, ducks, and others, all become incredibly attractive to a hungry predator stalking your yard.
If you encounter this big problem, the wildlife control experts know how to prevent further animal/livestock deaths. Covenant will capture and remove these animals so that they do not cause further damage.
