Bird netting is one of the methods we use for humane pest control. It’s good for more than birds!
Bird netting is a heavy-duty polyethylene or polypropylene net that can be installed across egresses that animals use to get into attics, parking garages, and other structures. Keeping animals out is, after all, half the battle. These nets can last for up to a decade before they need to be replaced.
You don’t have to worry about the aesthetics, either. When it’s installed properly, bird netting is virtually invisible. We are well aware that you don’t want your property looking like it’s been draped with big plastic webs! In reality, most of the spots that we’ll need to use netting are pretty small. Animals are pretty clever about finding ways into homes and businesses, but bit of netting, cut just right, can deter them.
Here at Elite Wildlife we use some of the toughest bird netting on the market. We don’t want to leave you with any worries that a highly determined squirrel, rat, or raccoon might just chew right through your net.
We also choose the smallest mesh because we don’t want smaller birds or bats getting caught in your netting. Choosing the right netting for your pest is important, because we’re not here to hurt critters. We’re here to trap them and release them somewhere they can have happy critter lives far away from your home.
Bird netting is non-toxic, so it’s not a threat to your family members or pets. In fact, it’s safe enough to use on or near food. Many Houston gardeners invest in bird netting to protect their vegetables. We do not, however, recommend trying to use bird netting as a DIY in-home or in-business pest removal strategy. Finding and removing pests effectively takes an expert.
Bird netting is just part of our strategy, of course. We first inspect your property to make sure we’ve found all the animals and all the ways they’re entering and exiting the building. Once we seal off their egress routes we trap the animals who remain inside while ensuring no more animals get in. We then take them off your property. We take the time to recommend clean-up companies who can help you deal with the mess they leave behind.
Here at Elite Wildlife we have over a decade of experience with urban wildlife removal. If you think you might have some critters where critters shouldn’t be, reach out to us. We’ll get rid of them fast—and kindly!
