Here at Animals Out we make it our mission to safely remove animals from your chimney. Every year thousands of animals are burned/suffocated from living in chimneys, our goal is to lower this statistic with your help. If you hear a bird or other animal living in your chimney call us today.
Sometimes birds find your chimney as the perfect place to build a nest. Unfortunately, birds bring many diseases along with them. Histoplasmosis is a disease caused by the fungus, ‘Histoplasma’ and can be contracted by breathing fungal spores from the air. Waste from birds carry this disease, and as animals utilize your chimney, this disease can spread throughout your home. In addition to removing the birds, we will remove any blockage they created to protect you from house fires.
Chimney swifts are small birds commonly found in chimneys. They are unable to perch and therefore must cling to vertical surfaces. Chimney swifts are a federally protected migratory bird; therefore, there are limitations on what we can do to remove this bird. Nevertheless, we will provide you with exceptional service by ensuring that these birds do not enter your house and by removing them as soon as possible.
In a sense, chimneys are like a cave. Therefore, chimneys tend to be a prime habitat for migrating bats. When bats make a home in your chimney, they generally are going to be somewhere higher which makes them more challenging to remove. They typically only need 3/8 of an inch to get into your home. Having a bat in your chimney can be a scary experience; give us a call to find out how we can remove your bat problems.
Like for bats, chimneys are a great little home for squirrels. Most usually, female squirrels make a home in your chimney to find a good place to have a family. Other times however, squirrels can get trapped in your chimney. As with all animals, we will remove the squirrels humanely.
Mice and Rats
Mice and rats carry several diseases that can harm your health. Additionally, they can breed fairly quickly and spread throughout your home rather than staying inside of your chimney. Even worse, wild mice and rats are extremely destructive. Call us today to see how we can help you.
Raccoons love dry places to live, and without a chimney cap, they would love to make your chimney their home. Just as with squirrels, female racoons attempt to use your chimney as their home. Raccoons are dangerous intruders since they carry rabies and can attack anyone who gets too close to their babies. After removing the raccoons, we will ensure that your chimney is in great condition.
Opossums carry several diseases, most of which can cause serious harm to you and your family. Diseases such as leptospirosis, tuberculosis, relapsing fever, and several other diseases. Call us today to take care of this serious problem!
Snakes are those pesky little guests that no one likes to have, but always seem to make their way into your home. Snakes can enter your home through the chimney and cause a wealth of problems. Additionally, snakes bring other creatures with them, such as mice, that can cause health problems.
