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.

Information About Bats Maternity Season And How That Impacts Their Removal

Bats are a protected wild animal in the sense that there are regulations in almost every part of the country that determine how they can be dealt with. Not knowing these regulations and breaking them can come with some very serious consequences. Understanding as much information about bats maternity season can help to ensure that you act within the law and reduce to overall harm to this species.

One of the most important pieces of information about bats maternity season is that it can vary depending on where you are located. In most cases this can range anywhere from early to late April to early to late August. Knowing what the season is in your area is imperative as removing these animals during that time is illegal and could come with extensive fines. It is important to take some time to be sure that you are not taking action during this time in order to stay within the law and protect yourself as well as the bats.

The most common way to eliminate bats from a home is to set up an exclusion point. What this means is that a place is created that allows the bats to leave, but will not allow them to re-enter. This is the most effective means to safely remove them while causing the least amount of harm. However, if this is done when pups are present it can be deadly. Pups do not have the ability to fly. Therefore, if their mothers are trapped outside of the roost, then the pups will be left to die. Not only is this cruel and illegal, it can also lead to extensive property damage with the rotting corpses.

It is also important to note that it is illegal to remove bats during the winter. Most species hibernate during this time as they will not have access to sufficient amounts of food and have very little body fat. While some companies may agree to assist you during these times, it is important to not take them up on their offer. You could be held legally responsible as well if authorities were to find out.

There are actually only a few months out of the year in which it is humane and legal to remove bats from a property. While this may be frustrating, it is done to protect the species that plays a very important role in the environment. If you know that you have bats roosting in your home you should call to set up an appointment during a time that is legal. The sooner you make an appointment, the sooner you will be able to have them removed as waiting lists can be quite long during these months.

The worst thing you can do is to try and plug a hole or remove bats yourself. Not all bats leave the roost at night, so you will surely cause some to die in your home. Removing them by other means can be dangerous and should only be handled by professionals. If you have bats make an appointment immediately so it can be handled in the most timely and legal manner possible.
