  • Has anyone been threatened or attacked by the animal?
  • Have you tried to deal with the animal yourself? In what way?
  • Has a professional previously attempted to resolve the problem?
  • What damage has the animal inflicted so far?
  • Have you taken any pictures of the animal, infestation location, or damage that you are willing to email to us?
