If after reading that information, you still have questions, then by all means drop me a line. In your question please include the following information so I can assist you better:
- State/region where the problem is occurring.
- Explain the nature of the damage.
- Inside building? Outside building?
- Noise, gnawing, predation?
- Damage occurs during the day? Night?
- Any activities you have employed in an attempt to mitigate the damage.
- Provide any pictures (if possible) of the damage. Learn how to take better photos at Shooting Photos.
Disclaimer: As with any activity, remember that animal damage control comes with its own risks and problems which can include but are not limited to legalities, health threats, and personal liabilities. Be sure to follow all state laws governing wildlife and make sure you have a thorough understanding on how to resolve the animal damage complaint.
