Squirrel Removal And Squirrel Trapping
Squirrels are creatures we enjoy watching eating an acorn, climbing a tree, or scampering around the neighborhood. When we hear one chewing in our attics, we totally freak out. Squirrels must chew to file their teeth down. If they don't chew, their teeth grow into their jaw and they cannot eat anymore. To hear this in an attic is horrible, our minds over imagine its chewing its way directly to us, as if were his intended victim. Well we aren't and will never be. Squirrels will only stand up to us when they are protecting their young. Squirrels will take advantage of our hospitality, when we leave our house with and area they can enter, when its cold they will. There they will stay until removed. Maybe in the process they will have babies. They have no grudge towards you, they are just trying to stay warm. We Have No Problem Removing Squirrels And Making Your House Squirrel Proof.
Raccoons In Attic & Chimneys
Raccoons enter your attic via, attic fans, attic vents, rotten roof edges and holes in the soffet and facia (Roof Overhang). A raccoon on average needs 25 square inches to penetrate your attic. This is a dimension of 5 inches x 5 inches. If you suspect raccoons in the attic, listen to the way it walks. Most raccoons lumber across the attic, Squirrels run fast, and mice basically stay in the same area and make scratching noises. Raccoons usually give birth April 1 of each year, and in august for a late litter. Depending how north or south you live depends on the exact timing of the birthing season. Never attempt to remove raccoons at these times of the year as you might strand babies inside and mother outside, the best that can happen is mother raccoon will rip your shingles from your roof attempting to get to her babies. Never set traps at these times either. LEAVE IT UP TO A PROFESSIONAL Remember most state laws require killing a Raccoon if you trap and posses him.
Skunk Trapping & Removal
Skunks, believe it or not, don't stink. Their spray does. When they spray they usually do not get it on themselves. If your house has been skunked, chances the skunk will leave for a couple of days. skunks are burrowing animals, therefore you wont find them in an attic. They dig under sheds, carports, concrete steps and any place with loose dirt available. It is very possible to exclude skunks from most of these areas. Remember most state laws require killing a skunk if you trap and posses him.
Snake Removal From Your Homes
We will inspect all possible entrances snakes will use to enter your house or building. Upon finding entrances, we can set snake exclusion devices to allow snakes to exit your building, then seal remaining entrances. Preventive snake control is the best possible solution for snake infestations. Trapping snakes also helps keep snakes at bay. A good rodent removal plan is key in keeping the food source for snakes to a minimum.
Dead Animal Removal
Removing dead animals isn't for the queezy. Maggots, bad smells and a complete mess is involved when removing the rotting carcass. Many times fleas and ticks jump from the dead animals body onto ours. Removing dead animals from under crawlspaces can pose many problems such as, tunneling under the sun room and porches, Concrete steps,cars and anything you can imagine. Heavy deer cause a problem when we have to load in our trucks, then we also, have to dispose of them properly. In most cases removing the animals, Removes the smell.
Woodchuck Trapping And Groundhog Control
Groundhogs, whistle pigs, woodchucks are burrowing animals that dig up our yards, eat our gardens, and basically scare most people. Trapping with live traps can be successful, and in most states are legal to release elsewhere.
Bat Removal / Bats In Attic
Bats Are Protected Federally. Trapping bats is not a long term solution. Exclusion, (Getting them out and sealing them out LIVE) is a long term solution. Killing bats is agenst the law. Bats can carry rabies, but you wont be able to tell if it is rabid unless you have the bat to test. if you have any feeling you have come in contact with a bat (it has touched, scratched or bit you SEEK Medical ADVICE. Do not guess, ask your doctor. Rabies is 100% Fatal. Bat colony's can be removed from your house at certain times of the year, other times baby bats can complicate things. Seek our professional advice.
Beaver Trapping / Beaver Dam Removal
Beavers tear trees apart, not the cheap trees either. Weeping willows and cherry trees are their favorite. in fact, weeping willow branches make great beaver lure. They dam up creeks and flood useful property until they are stopped. Their lodge is only to house their young, so if a lodge appears on your land, then a family isn't far behind. This world is more populated everyday, more children who love to play in creeks and ponds, make beaver trapping with killing traps a big problem. Killing traps will break the arms of children and break the noses of dogs snooping in the water. The Hancock style trap is a better solution for catching beavers because it is a visible trap.
Bird & Pigeon Trapping And Removal
We spend a lot of time on bird issues. from birds flying in grocery stores to raptors stuck in your local Wal-Mart store. Some birds require bird netting to remove them and seal them out, while others can be trapped. Starlings like to enter your microwave stove vent and any small gaps in your roofline. Squirrels like to come behind them and steal their shelter and eggs. Birds in a chimney present a special problem if the chimney is metal. the bird doesn't get trapped in the flue, it gets trapped in the liner. Removing birds from the liner can require cutting the wall, (to access liner)cutting the metal liner, and then removing the bird.
Stray & Feral Cat Removal
Its always nice to get pinned between cat lovers and cat haters. Cat lovers will feed every cat in the neighborhood, usually outside, near a cat haters house or car. The cat hater will want all cats trapped and removed. They poop in his garden, on his step, on his car, spray his bushes, and just generally piss him off. Cats know who he is, and do this on purpose. NOT. Removing stray cats can be the worst job we can get in the middle of. We cant come out on top.
" IT LOOKED AT ME" This is a common reason why people call us about opossums. The opossum is just looking for the dead animals it eats or trash to sustain his opossum diet. they are ground and tree dwellers. These animals will get into any nook they can.
Rodent Rat Mouse Removal
Mouse removal is simply finding the exterior entrances, sealing them out, and trapping the remaining mice. In certain instances we install valves to allow mice or rats to exit, then seal them out. most mouse and rat removal situations require trapping, live or killing traps.
Fox / Coyote Trapping
The most difficult trapping is the fox or coyote. Our operators have special trape in wich these animals can be caught live. habitat modification such as, trash can lids, deck fencing, and additional concrete around front purches, can be proven successful in deterring these animals. Many times foxes eat small birds and cats where coyotes will remove and eat small dogs, cats, squirels, rabbits ECT.
Armadillo Trapping (Southern States)
Armadillo require trapping. Setting the traps with fencing directing the animals into the traps works best. Habitat modification is hard to accomplish due to the animals digging about anywhere in the yard to find grubs and worms.
Flying Squirrel Proofing
Really a job for the experienced, as most pest companys confuse flying squirrels for mice. Flying squirrels eat mice and seeds. Flying squirrels will be most active between 10 pm and 4 am. Guaranteed to drive the homeowner crazy. Recentally I did a flyer job at a home where a homeowner had a company estimate the job at $2800.00. They said the attic had mice and squirrels. I told them upon my arrival that it was probably flyers amd that mice weren't the issue. I charged them $495.00 to get rid of the flying squirrels, did the job, and their attic has been noise free since. They had no mice, and therefore had a smaller bill.

Dogs that get sprayed by the Mt Airy skunk usually try to rub the smell from a Mt Airy skunk onto your carpet or couch. Skunks are intelligent and usually good natured. Despite their gentle manner, skunks can be deadly simply because they are often carriers of rabies. Skunks are predators and can decimate ground-nesting wild bird populations and local populations of endangered species of small mammals. Skunks are not true hibernators. They venture out of their dens for short distances when temperatures are near the freezing mark and snow conditions are favorable. Skunks are furbearers, and this classification provides them with legal protection except during the hunting and trapping season. Skunk activity rarely causes serious economic loss; rather, their scent creates a nuisance around occupied buildings. Skunks are fearless and won�t back down when endangered, especially during their breeding season. This is another reason they are so often struck by vehicles at this time of the year. Skunks are perhaps most well known for their defense strategy. When confronted, striped skunks will face the threat, arch and elevate their tail, erect the tail hairs, chatter their teeth, and stomp the ground with their front feet. Skunks are active both day and night and seem to be most active during the late evening and early hours of the night. They den up in groups during the winter. Skunks are excellent “mousers”, and may even be better at it then cats. They eat many mice, rats, other small rodents, grubs, and a variety of insects. Skunks are vulnerable to conibear-type traps and a fruit or vegetable bait is even more important when this trap is used. Often skunks killed in Conibear traps will not emit their musk. Skunks are known to break open eggs by pitching them backward between their legs. Shallow pits dug or rooted in the earth are evidence of their nightly hunts. Skunks are rodent predators who often follow mice and rats into these areas. Close openings around decks, stairs, sheds and hot tubs. Skunks are omnivorous, meaning they eat insects, plants and meats. They dine on insects, grubs, eggs and berries, and occasionally catch mice. Skunks are out foraging or seeking mates from late afternoon through the night. Their slow gait and reluctance to give ground make them a frequent victim of vehicular traffic, especially at this time of the year. Skunks are also a major reservoir and vector of rabies, but at present oral vaccines for use in skunks are not licensed. Furthermore, given differences in morphology (smaller jaws) and behavior (food handling and consumption), it is unknown if baits currently used in ORV campaigns would be effective for skunks. Skunks are predators too, but they feed extensively on insects and some plant matter. Skunks are generally active at night, however, healthy skunks are occasionally active during the day. Skunks frequently have poor eyesight and may approach a person or pet or be unaware as a person or pet walks towards them. Skunks are omnivores, meaning they?ll eat just about anything. They?ll consume a variety of plants and animals during the fall and winter, including carrion, but depend on insects in the summer. Skunks are nocturnal and feed on many kinds of plants and animals. Skunks release a noxious musk to discourage predators. Skunks are the reservoir of the disease and they represent the largest number of positive diagnoses at the laboratory. Bats have also been recognized as a significant reservoir of rabies. Skunks are actually doing a favor by eating some of these pests. I

Mt Airy Mole Removal Moles are highly adapted for digging and this can be seen in their skeleton. The arms stick out to the side of the body so that the animal almost swims through the soil by doing the breaststroke. Moles are also called "nevi.".Oddly shaped nevi are referred to as "atypical.".Most moles develop from sun exposure in childhood. So having a lot of moles may mean that you got a lot of sun as a young child. Moles are offered poison peanuts and chewing gum and sprayed with the oil from castor beans. But no matter what is thrown at them, moles remain mostly unaffected and continue tunneling through the ground in search of food. Moles are truly dependent on an abundant food supply. They will consume their weight in worms and other soil dwellers during a day and night of forging and resting. Moles are often accused of damage to bulbs and garden crops -- damage which is really done by mice that invade their burrows. The female mole ordinarily has one litter of four young each year in April or May. Moles are growths on the skin. They happen when cells in the skin, called melanocytes, grow in a cluster with tissue surrounding them. Moles are unclassified and people may trap or kill moles on their own property when they are causing damage to crops, domestic animals, or their property
