Dependent on the type of permanent repairs completed, Trappro offers up to a 5 year warranty on repairs. Trappro technicians do not sublet repair work. All recommendations made can be completed by a licensed and properly trained technician.
Q: How often do you check live cage traps?
A: Trappro monitors traps set for wildlife once per business day (Monday through Friday ONLY). On Saturday and Sunday live cage traps are tied open (so the door is not able to shut and trap an animal inside) and the trap will be pre-baited (food is placed inside the tied-open trap). Pre-baiting encourages the wildlife to enter the open trap and become more attracted to the trap itself. If the animal is comfortable entering the trap, it becomes much easier to catch for removal from the property. Trapping technicians may arrive at varied times throughout the trapping period; there is no set time window for maintenance.
Q: Do I need to be home every day to receive service?
A: Trappro requires the homeowner’s presence on the initial consultation. If traps are placed in the home (typically for mice, rats & snakes) Trappro will need access to monitor/maintain these traps if you so choose. Trapping for animals such as squirrels, raccoons, foxes, groundhogs, opossums, skunks, and beavers typically are done from the exterior only and Trappro will not need daily access to remove animals or monitor activity.
Q: Why do you set live cage traps on the exterior of the home when the animal is in the attic?
A: Naturally, when an animal becomes confined in a trap, they are know to become rambunctious. A trap being placed within the attic of a home with a rambunctious animal inside runs a great risk of either injuring the animal itself or causing damage to the home. It is not unheard of for a caged animal to manage to flip themselves and protrude through a home's ceiling. Traps being set outside is also found to be more convenient for the customer that cannot be home at all hours of the day to allow interaction with a trapping technician.
