Mice and Rats
Mice and rats are more than a nuisance. These rodents will chew through almost anything causing damage to your home. Rats carry many viruses and bacteria that could make you sick. And the droppings and urine contain germs harmful to your health. Not to mention, their fleas and parasites can spread the disease to your family and pets.
Covenant Wildlife Removal offers a range of rodent removal services depending on the vermin needing removal. We safely remove all rodent nesting materials, disinfect and deodorize the area, and seal up all possible entry points.
Raccoons and Squirrels
If you have ever had a raccoon in the yard, you know they are known for making a mess wherever they go. Raccoons will dig through your trash, tear through your garden, and nest in your attic, basement, or shed. When disturbed or threatened, they may even attack. Additionally, raccoons can carry rabies, putting you and your pets at risk. Covenant Wildlife Removal traps and removes raccoons from your Helena home.
Squirrels are another type of rodent that can wreak havoc in your Helena home. When they make their way into your attic and walls, they will chew through insulation and wiring to create a nesting area. Our wildlife removal team in Helena includes humane squirrel removal.
Skunks in Helena
Stinky skunks mostly want to eat grubs and other lawn pests, but they will spray if startled. Because skunks have low vision, they spray to warn away threats and protect their babies.
If you have ever smelled the spray of a skunk, you know just why people call Covenant Wildlife Removal to get the skunks as far away as possible.
Opossums and Gophers
Like skunks, opossums also eat nuisance insects, especially ticks. However, they and gophers dig tunnels and dens, which could leave a big mess on your lawn. If you have just planted new sod or relandscaped your yard, this is the last thing you want.
Covenant safely traps and relocates possums and gophers.
Flying Pests: Honeybees, Bats, and Birds
People often forget to look up at the flying pests that may invade your home, attic, trees, and property.
We know honeybees are critical to the growth and development of many foods people eat. However, you sure don’t want a new honeybee hive on your property. They will sting when threatened, and many people have bee sting allergies. Covenant offers live honeybee trapping. We will relocate the hive without killing the bees.
Bats and birds may be interesting to watch, but you certainly don’t want them to build a nest in your home. Their excrement may contain dangerous bacteria and viruses, and bat bites can transmit rabies.
Our wildlife removal services in Helena include humane trapping and release for bats and birds.
And Finally, Snakes in Helena
Now that’s a scary sight. When you have a snake on the property or, worse, call for help in your Helena home. Contact the professionals at Covenant if you even suspect you have a venomous snake on the property. Venomous snakes are a threat to both you and your pets. We safely trap all types of venomous snakes.
