Has a rodent taken up residence in your rafters? Before wrangling the menace yourself, realize this: Some species, such as raccoons, skunks, and bats, are prone to carry rabies and have legal consequences if they are harmed or trapped and relocated without the help of a pro. Don’t risk infection; contact a wildlife-control company instead. These licensed professionals will remove the animals, secure the openings, clean out nests, and eliminate waste. Don’t be your own critter ridder. It’s simply not worth risking your safety.
