Your chimney is a beautiful structure that is an important feature in your home. But it is also a great feature in the lives of little invaders.
Here is some important information regarding these critters and how to keep them out of your home! It’s important to make sure that your home is safe from little invaders.
Chimney Swifts are small birds commonly found in chimneys. They are unable to perch and therefore must cling to vertical surfaces. Chimney swifts are Federally Protected Migratory Bird, therefore there are limitations on what we can do to remove this bird. Give us a call to find out more!
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 a challenge to remove. 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 sometimes get trapped in your chimney. Give us a call so we can solve your squirrel problem!
Racoons love dry places to live, and without a chimney cap, they would love to make your chimney their home. Just as squirrels, female racoons attempt to use your chimney as their home.
