  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?
  • Digging Lawn or Under House?
  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Arizona'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 Arizona's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Maricopa county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Apache Junction animal control for wildlife issues.

Apache Junction Wildlife Removal Tip: DO POSSUMS DIG HOLES OR BURROW UNDERGROUND?

Possums are highly intelligent, night time creatures that live in wooded areas close to streams, under the cover of trees and close reliable sources of food. They feed on small insects and rodents and seeds and plants, they will eat almost anything, and are opportunist feeders, meaning that they would rather eat some other predator's leftovers that go to the trouble of hunting something themselves.

This is also true for their living situation. Possums are nomads by nature, meaning that they roam their home ranges and visit their different dens every few days, never staying too long in the same place, as they like to explore all their food sources. The only time they may spend up to a few weeks in the same den is when a mother is caring for its young and is reluctant to leave the warm safety of the nest, as the babies are probably still too young to go outside.

This means that possums do not dedicate time to building their own nests or burrowing underground nests. They look for abandoned burrows, holes or dens that were made by other woodland creatures like rabbits or foxes. Hollow trees, abandoned squirrel nests and underground tunnels are also likely to make comfortable homes for possums, who are night time creatures and very rarely venture outside during the day.

Once a suitable den is found, they do dedicate some time making sure that it becomes a comfortable home, even if it is for a few days only. Chances are they will come back to it in a few weeks, so they line it with grass, twigs and dry leaves, making their dens as cozy as possible. They gather the lining for their nests using their front paws to pick and choose, the passing it under their bellies to their hind legs, which they use to sort the lining into small bundles that are then transported hanging from their tails. This leaves their front paws free to keep gathering lining or maybe catching a tasty insect.

During the warm summer months, their nests may resemble a bird's nests, with open spaces and sparse lining to ensure air flow and a constant fresh temperature. During the winter, they will cozy up with more lining and a nest that resembles that of a squirrel or a mouse. This ensures that the tiny babies are as warm as possible and will not run the risk of losing heat, as they are not yet capable of regulating their own body temperatures.

Possums do not generally live in trees or branches, but may be driven to do so if they don't find a suitable den on the ground. They will look for a hollow tree or a tree with a previously built nest in its trunk, making sure that it is safe from the elements.
