Many of Canada'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 Canada'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 Quebec province 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 Quebec City animal control for wildlife issues.

Quebec City Wildlife Removal Tip: How to protect yourself from a spraying skunk: The obvious way to protect yourself from a Canadian spraying skunk is not to get too close but Iím aware this isnít always possible. Sometimes your paths will cross with an animal such as this one, and when it does, there are usually vile smelling consequences. You need to make sure youíre out of harmís reach - the average Canada skunk can spray up to three meters, or about ten feet. Thatís quite the distance - about two human lengths. If a big and powerful skunk gets the right angle however, the squirt can travel for up to 9 feet. The average seems to be about six to ten feet. In the right conditions, another skunk can then smell that spray for up to a mile away. In short, getting sprayed is not fun, and the scent is not easy to get rid of. The reason the spray has suck staying power is because itís an oily liquid - you know how difficult it is to get grease off of anything. When you bear that in mind, the first ingredient you should look at in your quest to get rid of the scent is dish washing detergent - that stuff is designed to get grease, or oily substances, from plates. If you come across a skunk, donít try to deal with the situation yourself, especially if youíve never done it before. The spray can be very irritating, especially if it gets into your eyes, and it can cause temporary blindness too. That puts you at risk for an actual physical attack from the animal even though this isnít likely.

Quebec City Animal News Clip: Porcupine information and facts -Did you know that the name porcupine is derived from the French term "porc espin" meaning spined pig, although they never resemble anything like a pig because they are generally referred to as rodents? They are also known as quill pigs. They are often said to be the third largest of all rodents. There are 29 species of known porcupines that exists today and they are mostly found in North and South America as well as having some species in Europe, Asia, and Africa.

The entire species of these rodents can be further divided into two categories which are the new world and the old world porcupines mainly because of the differences and similarities among species especially with their habitats. The new world porcupines are mostly found in the Americas while the old world porcupines are from other parts of the world namely Asia, Europe and Africa. Aside from their location, one thing that separates the two categories would be the kind of habitat they live in. For most new world porcupines, they can be found on trees while the other category mostly dwells on the ground sometimes in burrows or holes. Old world porcupines are also said to be mostly seen in pairs unlike their many relatives who are mostly comfortable being alone.

Although they differ much on where they stay, all of the species of these rodents are considered herbivores and their diet would consist of bark, roots, crops, fruit, pine needles, nuts, seeds, tubers, and even flowers. There are actually conflicting facts about their life span; some say that they can only live for 5 to 7 years on the average in the wild while there are also some which says they can live for almost 15 to 20 years maximum. Females can give birth to one to four babies depending on their species. They have soft spines or quills at birth but would gradually harden after a few days. They can be allowed to live on their own after two months.

They usually have soft hairs on the outside but be warned, they can have their sharp barbed spines up in a matter of seconds especially if they sense danger and if they are quite threatened. But contrary to popular beliefs and images portrayed in movies, they cannot shoot their enemies or release their spines at will to defend themselves. Although their spines usually come off after it has been touched. But they can easily replace those which they have lost.

If these quills would actually prick on some animalsí hide especially those who try to attack them, they would have a real problem finding a way to get rid of those spines because once a spine is stuck, it would be too difficult to detach them and they would have a great remembrance of their encounter. After all it would be a while before they can forget the hurt and the spines that struck them. This might be one of the reasons why few predators try and attack them.

The largest of all these rodents would be the North American porcupine that lives in the U.S. and Canada which can be 36 inches long. The smallest specie on the other hand is the Bahia hairy dwarf porcupine which can only grow to be only 15 inches long and that includes the tail. Depending on their size and specie they can weigh as low as 2 lbs. and can be very heavy as much as 77 lbs. Most of them are said to lead a solitary life but will eventually change once they are getting into the mating season and to keep themselves warm in the winter. They can also bind to get together once they have a very good source of food. A single porcupine is said to be able to produce 30,000 or more spines and they are known to be good swimmers as well.
