Squirrel removal and squirrel control can be very challenging.  It will require many different types of tools and ladders to complete this task. There are many different types of squirrel traps. Live traps in the attics aren't as effective as you might think. Trapping squirrels at the roof entrance and near the entrance can be very successful  Most squirrel control service work is at the roof line if the house or dwelling. Properly trained & licensed exclusion professionals will make squirrel control, problem free. State animal control officers will respond free of charge when a squirrel is in the living areas of your home. How to Trap Squirrels & trapping Squirrels Squirrel Removal Prevention


Raccoon control and removal is very dangerous work. Raccoons have a higher possibility of carrying rabies and will be aggressive if cornered in the attic or inside your chimney. See page on raccoon diseases  Most county and state animal control officials will respond to a raccoon inside you living areas of your home at no charge. Raccoons cause damage or nuisance problems around houses and outbuildings when they seek to gain entrance to attics or chimneys or when they raid garbage in search of food. In many urban or suburban areas, raccoons are learning that uncapped chimneys make very adequate substitutes for more traditional hollow trees for use as denning sites, particularly in spring. In extreme cases, raccoons may tear off shingles or facia boards in order to gain access to an attic or wall space. When the raccoon takes up residence in your yard, crawlspace, attic, and chimney then you need a professional. Most wildlife removal and control professionals have had a rabies pre-exposure vaccine administered to them. Trapping raccoons will be the best form of control. Raccoons that enter traps must always be treated as if they have rabies.    Tips on how to trap raccoons and raccoon trapping


Skunk control and removal will always be unpredictable. Trapping skunks pose a special problem. How do you get the skunk out of the trap? The best way to remove a live skunk from your trap is to talk to it. This lets the trapped skunk know where you are at all times. When talking to the skunk, you don't startle the trapped animal. The spray from a skunk can linger for weeks. unless you are very brave and or very confident, always have a professional remove these friendly but smelly creatures.


Opossum trapping and removal is less dangerous than most other wildlife control. it is still not for everyone. Trapping opossums to remove them from under your building will keep them from eating your trash. Removal is the best form of opossum  control. The opossum is part of the kangaroo family. usually the opossum resides in the lower areas of your dwelling. The opossum usually feeds on the dead caucus of other animals. Trapping, removal and exclusion is the best way to handle these creatures.

There are more than 60 different species of opossum, which are often called possums. The most notable is the Virginia opossum or common opossum—the only marsupial (pouched mammal) found in the United States and Canada. A female opossum gives birth to helpless young as tiny as honeybees. Babies immediately crawl into the mother's pouch, where they continue to develop. As they get larger, they will go in and out of the pouch and sometimes ride on the mother's back as she hunts for food. Opossums may give birth to as many as 20 babies in a litter, but fewer than half of them survive. Some never even make it as far as the pouch. Opossums are scavengers, and they often visit human homes or settlements to raid garbage cans, dumpsters, and other containers. They are attracted to carrion and can often be spotted near roadkill. Opossums also eat grass, nuts, and fruit. They will hunt mice, birds, insects, worms, snakes, and even chickens. These animals are most famous for "playing possum." When threatened by dogs, foxes, or bobcats, opossums sometimes flop onto their sides and lie on the ground with their eyes closed or staring fixedly into space. They extend their tongues and generally appear to be dead. This ploy may put a predator off its guard and allow the opossum an opportunity to make its escape. Opossums are excellent tree climbers and spend much of their time aloft. They are aided in this by sharp claws, which dig into bark, and by a long prehensile (gripping) tail that can be used as an extra limb. Opossums nest in tree holes or in dens made by other animals. These animals are widespread and are sometimes hunted as food, particularly in the southern United States.

Snakes get the worst publicity of all. They have been feared since biblical times. Although snakes are sometimes thought to stalk humans that's quite untrue. they're very east to predict. Food, heat and water is all they pursue. Take any of these things out of the equation and the snake leaves. Wildlife control professionals know how to remove the factors and then remove the snake problem.

What Rebecca Hurst thought was the sound of sprinklers outside her Bluffton home Sunday night was actually the rattling of a venomous snake. Rebecca,her husband, John, and their 5-year-old daughter, Jenny, had recently returned from a four-day vacation. After relaxing on his rocking chair on the back patio, John Hurst went inside the house around 10:30 p.m. but left the patio door open. "I heard this sound that sounded like water gushing in the sink," Rebecca Hurst said. "I got out the flashlight. I shined it to the left where the sprinklers are, and there was a huge coiled-up snake." The Hursts called 911. The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office responded and confirmed it was a canebrake rattlesnake. The Hursts asked the Sheriff's Office to remove the snake, and a deputy shot it, Rebecca Hurst said. "We had no choice; that thing was huge," she said. Canebrake rattle snakes typically grow to four to six feet long, according to DNR wildlife biologist Anna Tarter. The S.C. Department of Natural Resources said snakes are on the move now to find mates and places to lay their eggs, and residents should be aware when they go outside to garden. With the recent rains, snakes also could be looking for dry ground if their holes have been flooded, said Tarter. If you find a snake in your yard, you should leave it alone and call an animal removal service or local law enforcement.  Liz Mitchell, staff writer


Beavers destroy man made habitat, but create much needed wetlands. The beaver will never stop tearing down trees and blocking waterways. Most humans cannot tolerate beavers when they devour the ornamental trees that humans plant . Hancock traps can remove beavers live.


Birds crap all over everything. from starlings nesting in vents to pigeons roosting at areas where humans do business, birds create many environmental hazards.  Removal and control of birds in attics and vents require specialized tools including rods, cameras and blowers to remove nests and to blow the loose debris out. Installation of  bird netting and bird spikes are preventive ways in which to deal with birds.


Bats  and Bat removal in the United States are considered dangerous carriers of rabies and should be excluded by professionals.  When doing bat removal there are to many variables in which to consider in bat control and exclusion. Every situation with a bat removal and cat control work are considered unique and should be evaluated and handled by a state licensed wildlife Bat removal, animal control professional. Experience is the key in removing these critters. From vents with a maternity colony to completely infested buildings, bat removal and bat exclusion work is the most detailed work that can be done by the certified bat removal professional. In most States Bat control is best done by a bat removal service using exclusion methods and repairing the building is recomended.  Bat removal And control season is now upon us.

SIAMESE CAT VS. BATS

I  live in an old farmhouse and have always had bats in the attic. My attitude was “they could have the attic and I would have the rest of the house”. I had no flies, mosquitoes, and very few other flying insects. It worked quite well for a number of years. We lived in harmony, more or less. Unfortunately, word got out and I soon had 4 colonies in the attic. Than a black snake took up residence. Harmony was destroyed and utter chaos took its place. Bats began to slip under the doors, through the keyholes, down the chimney etc.etc.  Princess Nephriti (the Siamese cat) thought that this event was on a par with the invention of Fancy Feast and as playmates, right up there with snakes (that‘s another story). She would sit on the newel post of the stairs, and when one would fly by, she would grab them in mid-air. She would then come to me with bat in mouth and wings flapping. I would grab the leather gloves, take it out of her mouth and pitch it outside. After a few episodes of this, she stopped bringing them to me and would instead play with them, throwing them in the air and jumping up after them. Than I noticed that she wasn’t sleeping much during the day anymore. Found her sitting in front of the woodstove patiently waiting for a bat to come out. They would come down the chimney and slip out through the air vents. After I shut those down, they would slip out where the stove pipes fit together: a bat would slip a wing through, than his body and head and than the other wing. Nephie always waited until they were all the way through before pouncing. She always got her bat. It got to the point where Nephie couldn’t keep up with the traffic and when I came downstairs one morning to find a row of bats hanging from a bookcase I gave up. Called in professional help, my bat removal service responded promptly. We all live in harmony once again, the snake is still in the attic, he got to fat to get out again. At least I hope it’s a he and not a she producing little snakes.

Rabies in Ontario

This page was reviewed or revised on Thursday, March 05, 2009. The arctic fox strain of rabies (carried mainly by red foxes and skunks) has been present in Ontario for decades.  A strain new to Ontario, carried mainly by raccoons, entered the province in 1999.

Baiting programs have proved very successful in the rapid decline of fox rabies in Ontario since their inception in 1994. There were 66 animals tested positive for rabies in Ontario in 2008. There were 106 animals tested positive for rabies in Ontario in 2007
