Description Of Work: Provider was called to deal with squirrels in the soffits. They eliminated the squirrels as well as inspected the entire roof line and secured any entry points.
Member Comments: Excellent 1st experience. They kept in touch about the schedule, arrived on time, and explained in detail their process. They "evict" the animal by placing a one-way entry system that allows animals to leave but not enter. They try to scare the animals out, but then leave and come back when all the animals have left. They work with the homeowner on this, calling to see if there is any noise or evidence of the animals. Then they come back and close the hole in addition to any others they found during the inspection. This is a much better system than setting traps and removing animals as they happen into the trap, which I don't think would work at all with squirrels. It was very expensive, but worth it. I have been dealing with raccoons and squirrels for years now and am exhausted with it. American Pest guaranteed my soffits would be pest free for a year. What a treat!
