Greensboro Critter Tip: What is the best way to repair a hole chewed in your house by a rodent?
Rats, squirrels, mice and other burrowing tunneling creatures have natural sharp teeth and claws perfect for chewing and clawing their way into any space, natural or manmade. I f you have an infestation you will have at least one of the pesky hoes that you will want to repair. How you repair it depends largely on what part of your house it is in and whether or not the critters are gone. If the infestation has not been cleared, then you want a temporary fix. This can be done wire mesh or a piece of steel wool and some tape. Find the hole, stuff it, and cover it with the heavy duty tape. Once you have solved your problem you can take more permanent actions. When you have cleared out the infestation, you can set about repairing the damage t keep them out.
If is a hole on the exterior of your home, you will want to start by determining if it actually goes into your home, or jut provides access to the underside. It may be possible to simple fasten a piece of mesh wiring over the hole. If indeed has access to you home’s interior, you will want to patch it a little better. Begin by clearing the area all around the hole. You will need to remove the section of siding that surrounds the hole. This might require cutting out a section using a reciprocating saw or handsaw.
Pay close attention to any screws or nails you might need to remove. Once you have cleared the area measure carefully and cut the replacement piece the exact size. Replace the piece and caulk any seams. Paint to match it necessary. Most rodent holes are very small so patching them might only require some caulk or spray foam product in the hole and may not be noticeable at all. For holes in the inside of your home, if it I plaster walls, stuff with a little insulation, and plaster over it, for wood I suggest wood putty rather than changing out an entire piece of paneling! A little paint or stain to the touch up band voila’ you are done.

How to remove an animal stuck down a wall - When you hear the sounds of scratching and clawing within the wall, you may think that it is the animal that has stuck inside. The best thing is to ensure that you get rid of the problem faster as you can. There are many wild animals that are the excellent climbers while others live in the drywall but it can be hard for the critters to climb them. When you do not deal with the problem at once, the animal may scratch its way out of home or it may die inside and you may not be happy with the odor. Before you try to get rid of the animals in the wall, you will need to know the type of the animals found within your wall, if the animal had stuck or if it can climb up or down of a wall or if it is a big animal or a baby animals within the wall. You should also consider if you will be able to handle the problem on your own or if you will have to hire the professional company.
Even if the space within the wall may be too small, it is possible for an animal to enter into it and to build a home inside. This is going to be total disaster when this takes place. When it is time to get rid of the critter, you should be smart about it or you may have the entire wildlife coming to your home to live there. When you live the animals inside, you will be exposing your family to different problems and they may chew on your house.
After getting rid of the animal, you should also figure out how it entered in the home in the first place. Check both inside and outside to decide how to reduce the cases of the animals to enter in your home.
If the animal is not stuck, you can try to get it out on its own. The raccoons and the rats are normally nocturnal creatures and they will wake up when it is night to get the food. You should entice them to get out. You can put seeds or corn meal in the way so that they follow them to get out. When it gets out, seal the place and make sure that it does not get inside anymore. If the animal had stuck, you may have to cut the wall near where it is found to help it out.
