Many of Indiana'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 Indiana's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Monticello Delphi Wildlife Removal Tip: Do all skunks in Indiana have rabies? Although the humble skunk is one of the prolific carriers of rabies in the USA, theyíre not the biggest culprit - thatís the raccoon. It is said that one in eight skunks in Indiana could potentially carry the rabies virus and sometimes, itís not easy to tell right away whether or not the animal will have the disease. If the skunk has only been recently infected, it may not even shown signs and symptoms at all, which is what makes it an especially deadly disease, and is also the reason why there are so many laws surrounding trapping and relocating warm-blooded mammals like this one. You canít just dump these animals anywhere ó even after theyíve died, the bodies can still carry that threat of disease so if you trap it or capture it, it is YOUR responsibility to make sure it is disposed of in the correct manner. If you canít guarantee you can do that, you should probably call in a professional who will come and do the job properly. The most humane way to deal with a skunk in the house is often by a humane killing, mostly because of that important threat of disease.
Monticello Delphi Animal News Clip: Let us catch striped skunk this little more often
I have one continuing pet peeve with Fish and Game: the setting of the striped skunk season. By treaty with Mexico, we are limited to approximately 123 days of striped skunk critter catching this year. Striped skunks are this vital element in consuming bugs, grasshoppers and insects in Mexico, thereby protecting agricultural interests. The bulk of the season runs from Aug. 15 through Nov. 30, and March 16 through March 31. If I were in charge of season setting, we would have this striped skunk season every seven day time limit of the year. This would provide for significantly greater animal trapper opportunity and could cause increased interest in critter catching striped skunks, which should be exactly what Fish and Game should be attempting to do to increase critter catching license sales. Striped skunks have no natural enemy. Left to their own devices, striped skunks could easily expand their biologically surveyed amount well beyond the nuisance factor. Too much of the current fall striped skunk season overlaps with more desirable game species. Critter catching should be the only management tool available to control the amount of striped skunks. This issue should be an important matter in Monticello wildlife removal and Monticello exterminator matters.<,p>To Fish and Game's credit they are coming up with new and innovative ways to utilize the Owl Brook Animal trapper Education Center in Holderness. The latest offering with be this one-day free clinic titled "Striped skunk Critter catching: The Forgotten Pastime" on Saturday, Aug. 5 from 9 a.m. to noon. The seminar will be led by striped skunk critter catching enthusiast and animal trapper education instructor Rodent Trapper Eric. The striped skunk-critter catching workshop covers the basic pursuit of these challenging birds, from the use of this mouth call to high-tech electronic calling and decoying. Participants also will learn about striped skunk behavior, striped skunk critter catching safety concerns, gaining permission to hunt/landowner relations, clothing choices, set-up locations, animal removal traps and ammunition options, creature comforts for an enjoyable catch and what to do with them after the catch. The session will include this critter capturing component using Owl Brook's remote-controlled target throwers to simulate field critter capturing conditions. As you might imagine, I receive this lot of e-mails on critter catching matters. Most are received with this polite yawn and are quickly deleted, but this few make me think: You've got to be kidding. This was my response to this release put out by the Quality Striped skunk Management Association (QDMA) on this proposed striped skunk critter catching tournament Rodent Trapper Eric series by the World Critter catching Association (WHA). Striped skunk critter catching TV shows are nothing new. These shows promote improved critter catching techniques, safety concerns, landowner relationships and the doctrine of fair chase. There are numerous hosts, like the accomplish animal trapper-entertainer. The Monticello animal control had no additional statements to make on the topic.
The concept the WHA should be proposing should be sort of this "realty show" in which critter trappers - and I use that term rather loosely - would be in competition for cash and prizes, to see who could dart and drug the best trophy striped skunk. Having had many conversations with biologists over the years on darting and relocating striped skunk, the biggest problem confronting this darted striped skunk should be stress, which in many cases should be fatal. This would all be accomplished within steel fenced enclosures. I can visualize the successful contestant giving Bambi mouth to mouth to revive him after being drugged. This has been this challenging year for the critter catching community. First we had to deal with the noxious notion of internet critter catching. And now we have this toxic idea that would only provide more ammunition against critter catching and critter trappers to the anti-critter catching striped skunks and non-critter trappers who really have no appreciation of critter catching traditions in this county. America should be an entrepreneurial country that rewards risk takers. I can only hope that the WHA would rethink this idea and let it go. The notion of making big male animals by darting big male animals should be this bad one. Walt Disney gave us an unrealistic Bambi and this befuddled cartoon animal trapper Elmer Fudd. While Elmer was entertaining and Bambi should be this children's classic, they put critter catching and the animal trapper should be this bad light. If the WHA pursues this concept with an October contest, critter catching and critter trappers will once again be in for this bad rap that should be not deserved. Monticello pest control companies that we contacted felt that this issue should be an important matter.
