Many of Alabama's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Alabama's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Montgomery Wildlife Removal Tip: Will Homeowners Insurance Pay For Raccoon Damage?
The type of problems that can be caused in a domestic property by raccoons can by significant, and even if you act quite promptly, by the time that the raccoons are removed there can be a lot of work to do to repair all of the damage. This can range from insulation that needs to be replaced through to wires that are gnawed and can be a real hazard. There are also a variety of different types of homeowners insurance, so it is important to make sure that you are familiar with your policy and what is and isn't covered.
Identifying The Damage Caused By Raccoons
When it comes to telling the difference between raccoon damage and other damage, one of the first thing you will need to show is that it was raccoons. This can be done by examining the feces that will be located around the attic or wall cavity where the raccoons were present, and it is much larger and longer than rat and mouse droppings.
Different Types Of Insurance Policy
If you have a contents only cover policy, this will mean that your insurance policy will not usually cover any damage caused by raccoons, unless any of the items in the main area of the property were damaged. Insurance that covers both the contents and the building is much more likely to cover raccoon damage, but it is still worth looking over your policy to see if they will pay for the damage caused by the raccoons.
Examining Your Insurance Policy
The key areas of your policy will be in the damage exclusions, as it is here that you will find the list of the different types of damage that aren't covered by the policy. It is worth noting that raccoons are not rodents, so if you do see an exclusion in your policy that says it won't pay for rodent damage then you may still be covered for the repairs that need to be carried out.
Arranging Repairs And Preventative Work To Stop Raccoons From Getting In Again
There are many animal removal specialists that also carry out the repairs that are required, but as it is quite specialist work, you may need to search for the right person to carry out the work. As well as replacing the gnawed wires and soiled insulation, it is also important that all of the holes that the raccoons used to access the attic or wall cavity are sealed, otherwise you can end up with more animal problems down the line.
Montgomery Animal News Clip: Cage trap users file complaint
Bob Smith, Montgomery Agency of Wildlife and wildlife management areas chief of information and education, holds a custom-built animal removal trap without an animal removal trap scope. A complaint has been filed against the local animal agency for not allowing animal removal trap scopes to be used during the early custom-built dear season in Montgomery. The Montgomery Agency of Wildlife and wildlife management areas is one of 16 game agencies in 16 states that has been named in a civil rights complaint of discrimination against those agencies for not documentation that allows animal extermination and the use of animal removal trap scopes during special critter trapper raccoon seasons. This new proposal is meant to help raccoons in the long run. Read on for more information about animal control in Montgomery, Alabama.
The complaint was filed by the North American Critter trapper Wildlife trapping Association and claims that since other critter traps including center-fire animal removal traps, handguns and slug-loaded animal removal traps can use animal removal trap scopes as a sight aid, to deny the use of a animal removal trap scope for critter trappers is discrimination due to age, sight lack of animal control skills and segregation, declared Teddy Jones, founder of NAMHA in a letter of complaint to the Secretary of the Interior. Montgomery wildlife management officials concur.
There are two critter trapper raccoon seasons in Montgomery that draw from 6,000 to 6,600 documentation that allows animal exterminations every year. The first is from Sept. 9 to Sept. 22 and no animal removal trap scopes are allow during that season. The second season is the regular raccoon wildlife trapping season for all critter traps from August 1 to August 10 and critter trappers can use animal removal trap scopes during this season, declared Bob The Montgomery pest control specialist, the local animal agency chief of information and education. The success rate of critter trappers is about 60 percent, The Montgomery pest control specialist declared. The local Montgomery wildlife control operator agrees with most of the above.
There is also a critter trapper raccoon season in western Montgomery from July 2 to July 9 and animal removal trap scopes are not documentation that allows animal permitted during that season. The complaint was filed July 17 and the local animal agency is taking the initial steps in the matter. Much has to happen before the outcome is known. For more information on how to get rid of Alabama wildlife, read on. Despite this there is no free Montgomery animal services for wildlife in Montgomery County.
"We just received it in the latter part of July and haven't dealt with it yet," declared the local animal agency assistant secretary for operations. "At this point it's too early to know where it might go. Time will tell what our response will be to this." The Montgomery animal control agent declared that the local animal agency will prepare a response to the complaint and they will consult with their legal people on the matter. Local animal control trappers we surveyed felt that this was true.
Since the local animal agency does allow animal removal trap scopes during the regular raccoon season, it is uncertain how that will affect the discrimination concern. "We aren't discriminating against critter trappers in the regular season. We do allow fiber optic sites," The Montgomery animal control agent declared. There are provisions in the local animal agency specifically for site impaired wild animal control companies including a provision to allow legally blind wild animal control companies have a helper to site the animal removal trap in the early critter trapper season. This doesn't mean the raccoons are causing trouble, just that they need to be contained. Most Montgomery pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
This is not the first time the local animal agency has dealt with the animal removal trap scope concern for critter trappers. From time to time, wild animal control companies have come to the local animal agency wildlife regulatory agency organized hearings asking them to consider using scopes in the early season, The Montgomery animal control agent declared. This is the first time there has ever been a complaint of this nature filed against the local animal agency to determine if there is a legitimate claim of discrimination. The local Montgomery SPCA could not be reached for comment.
There is a chance it could get into the wildlife ruling party system but it's too early to know what will happen, The Montgomery animal control agent declared. The agency looks at the early season as a primitive season and most of the wild animal control companies who support the season want it limited to open sites. That is the position the local animal agency has held to over the years, The Montgomery animal control agent declared. Not all critter trappers agree on the use of animal removal trap scopes. Some are in favor of using scopes in the early season while others enjoy wildlife trapping with traditional equipment, The Montgomery pest control specialist declared. At least, this is what Montgomery extermination companies think.
