Trapping costs are typically are set price unless the area is unsafe or has limited access forcing us to use alternate or modified methods to trap the animals. Dead animal removal can also vary as animals tend to die in some very inaccessible places or will die right on your lawn. Size and disposal will also play a role. Animal proofing costs will vary depending on the location of the area if up high, if there are rocks, roots or bushes to deal with if on the ground and what the size of the area is that we are excluding to wildlife.

With raccoons traps can be set on the roof, on the ground where they are gaining access and also inside the attic if need be. Each has its pros and cons. Setting up for squirrel removal or raccoon traps on the roof means it must be secured down by screwing to the roof. Of course, all holes are properly sealed after the trapping has been completed. Raccoon removal that is done inside an attic, can also bring its own set of issues. When a raccoon has been caught and needs to be brought down and through the home, it can potentially be messy. Raccoon urinate when they are afraid, they can usually have feces in the cage, can cut themselves on the steel, and loose hair and they rub against the cage. This means you can have blood, hair, urine and raccoon feces trailing into your home if the trap has not been contained tightly. For squirrels, attic traps work wonderful as they don’t really present all of the issue raccoons do. Traps set on the ground for raccoon where they are climbing up can be effective but they can also catch random animals that find the bait first. Skunk traps are set at the den site, which is most effective for quick capture.

Many are interested in the bait we use. For squirrels, peanut butter is usually the bait of choice as it has a strong odor and lasts quite a while. Raccoon will eat almost anything, so anything from cat food and sardines to marshmallows are used depending on the time of year and situation. Skunk are omnivores as well so cat food, sardines and carrots are all baits that are used to catch them.

We do get sprayed from time to time when providing Mice Removal and while there is no way to keep a skunk from spraying, patience and experience can calm a skunk’s nerves to keep it from spraying. When we are sprayed, baking soda, peroxide and dish soap is the only solution that breaks down all 3 molecules of skunk odor. Tomato juice is an internet tale.

Interesting Information About Squirrels Mating Season

There is a general misconception that a squirrel is a mammal when it is in fact a rodent. As such, it needs to mate in order to reproduce live young (called kits or kittens) that are dependent on their mother for up to 3 months after birth. Some interesting information about squirrels mating season includes:

1. When Are Squirrels Ready To Mate?

A female squirrel is ready to carry a litter of kits or kittens from about the age of 1 year. Male squirrels are also ready to mate at around this age.

2. When Is Squirrel Mating Season?

Because squirrels are rodents, there isn’t really a specific season of the year when they mate. Female squirrels carry a litter at least twice a year and more often if conditions are optimal. Seeing that they only care for their young for a period of 3 months, they can in fact reproduce much faster than this. In fact, kits are normally weened at about 8 weeks of age at which time mom is ready to mate again and carry the next litter. Squirrels can therefore reproduce at quite a prolific rate.

However, this said, there are times of the year that are more optimal for breeding. Springtime produces the best climatic conditions and the first mating season normally occurs around late winter. The gestation period or length of pregnancy can last anywhere from 29 to 65 days depending on the species which means that the young will arrive in early or late Spring. Larger squirrel species have longer gestation periods. Keeping in mind that ground squirrels hibernate during winter, mating in late winter is optimal.

3. What Is The Mating Process?

Squirrels do not mate for life and will have multiple partners in one lifetime and even in one season. Female squirrels emit a strong scent when they are ready to mate which attracts the males. The males will chase her through the treetops while trying to ward each other off making for quite the acrobatic display. The slapping of trees and bark to produce load noises is to ward off any other males in the vicinity.

The winner of the chase gets to mate with the sow. A female squirrel is referred to as a sow and a male as a boar. However, the female will remember the male that she mated with and will make sure that she never chooses him as a mate again. Once the deed is done, the father will leave and not return. While mothers provide care for their young for up to 3 months, the fathers have nothing to with the raising of their offspring.

Due to the ability to breed so prolifically, squirrels are generally considered to be pests, especially when they decide to move into man-made structures. It is therefore very important to understand the information about squirrels mating season, how often they mate and how long they care for their young in order to take steps to manage and control their populations effectively.
