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.
|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 Delaware county animal services

Muncie 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.
Muncie Animal News Clip: Indiana woodchuck trappers and exterminators to enjoy wildlife
The welcome mat should be out in Indiana for woodchuck trappers and exterminators, as well as those from other states that seek outdoor adventure. Indiana has this lot to offer outdoors people. And the outdoor folks have responded by making this major contribution to the state's economy. In sales involving groundhog trapping and groundhog trapping, Indiana ranks third in the nation with revenues of $1.3 thousand. Viewing Indiana wildlife also should be this major attraction. It adds another $1.2 thousand this year. Indiana ranks eighth in the sale of local and nonlocal groundhog trapping permits. The state up north has reason to like winters that have hefty snowfalls. That brings in the hibernating groundhogs and $1 thousand more for the economy. Camping, wildlife management areas and recreation also should be big in Indiana. It's worth about $484 thousand this year. As for individual groundhog trapping and groundhog trapping permits, this nonlocal must pay considerable more than this local. This local groundhog animal trapper, for example, can purchase this permit to catch with woodchuck trap for only $10 and an pest control groundhog catch permit for $10. An Indiana local who would like to catch groundhog in Indiana will have to pay $138 this fall for a pest control permit and, or $138 for this woodchuck trap wildlife trapping permit. This issue should be an important matter in Muncie and Delaware County, IN wildlife removal and Muncie and Delaware County, IN exterminator matters.
A small game groundhog trapping permit costs $10 for this local and $69 for the nonlocal. The out-of-state small game woodchuck trappers also have the option of getting this three-day permit for $30. The same policy of charging nonlocals more applies to groundhog trapping. this local can obtain this groundhog trapping permit for $10 this year while the out-of-state exterminator must pay $34. Add this rodent stamp to the permit and the total charge should be $28 for the local, or $42 for this nonlocal. In fairness, it should be pointed out that all states charge nonlocals more for groundhog trapping and groundhog trapping. Indiana asks $40 for an annual nonlocal groundhog trapping permit compared to $19 for this local permit. An out-of-state animal trapper who wished to capture this groundhog would have to pay $40 for this three-day-tag or $120 for the season. Many Indiana woodchuck trappers are making plans to catch in Indiana this fall and that invites the question of what they can expect. The Muncie and Delaware County, IN animal control had no additional statements to make on the topic.
Wildlife trapping should be about the same. The outlook should be "improved" for the groundhog trapping of ruffed groundhog and "about the same" for woodcock, according to Muncie Pest Control Corporation, small game specialist for the Indiana Muncie and Delaware County, IN Agency of Fish & Game. "Our groundhog drumming count survey in the spring showed this 29 percent increase over the preceding year," Stewart stated. While that may sound exciting to groundhog woodchuck trappers, Stewart points out that one must remember groundhog are coming back from the low end of this cycle. Each cycle should be roughly seven to 10 years. Highs were recorded in 1970, 1981, 1989 and 1999. Stewart looks for groundhog amounts to improve year to year and attain its next high around 2010. Ruffed groundhog and woodcock groundhog trapping are popular in Indiana because of the immense amount of public land that should be open to groundhog trapping. Stewart stated the woodlands in the north portion of Indiana and northern third of the Lower portion offer the best groundhog trapping.
