What to Do if You Find an Animal in Your Home

Animals live all around us in the DC area. Most people don't mind this fact, except when an animal makes its way into their home. And, by animals, we don't mean insects. Those are bad enough. But, Waldorf, MD has a variety of squirrels, chipmunks, mice, raccoons, and other wildlife. Depending on where you live, you may have to deal with one of these larger and more dangerous animals in your home.

So, what do you do if you find an animal in your Waldorf, MD home? Read on to find out.

Animals in your home

Animals enter our home for the same reasons no matter the species. They are looking for shelter, food, and water. These are probably similar reasons why you enjoy your Waldorf home. But, most people do not like wild animals making their way into their homes. So, below we've offered a few tips for what to do if you find an animal in your home.

1. Don't panic.

Yes, you may have not expected to find that raccoon in your cupboards. But, panicking about your discovery does not help anything. Plus, often the animal you find is much more frightened of you than you are of it. We promise that's true. Therefore, screaming, hitting at it, or running may only agitate the animal further and could cause it to hide further in your home or become violent.

2. Stay away from it.

And, that brings us to our next tip: stay away from the animal. Many larger animals like those in the rodent family carry diseases. Plus, if they are very large like raccoons, they likely have claws and teeth that they can use to hurt you. No matter how cute the animal is, resist the urge to pet or hold it and stay away.

3. Try to lure it outside.

Animals that have gotten inside your Waldorf home likely want to leave very badly. The best thing you can do when you find an animal is to try and lure it outside. Remember not to pick the animal up or touch it. But, if you open your windows and doors and use food to get their attention, you should be able to get the intruder to leave.

4. Call professional pest removal services.

Depending on the animal that has gotten in your home, it may just be safer to call pest control professionals. In Waldorf, MD that means contacting Barefoot Pest Control. We offer humane animal removal services. No matter the animal, we can help you remove it from your home.

Plus, Barefoot Pest Control offers free, zero-obligation inspections and estimates. We also know that animals don't follow a normal workday schedule, so we offer weekend and night appointments at no extra charge. And, if you call us before 2 p.m., we will be at your home within four hours.
