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.

New Albany Wildlife Removal Tip: What diseases do opossums carry? One of the diseases that you won't really need to worry about when it comes to finding an opossum in your home, is rabies. Although these mammals have the potential to carry rabies, most of the wild creatures do not carry the virus, and in studies, opossums have been shown to be eight times less likely to carry the disease than the average wild dog. When you combine this with the fact that opossums are actually immune to many venoms from dangerous snakes, and have a high need for calcium so therefore have a particular love for the bones of other dead animals, what opossums really are, are natural cleaners. They'll eat the other parts of the decomposing body that other animals won't, and have the potential to fight back against the populations of rats, snakes and other animals you probably wouldn't want in your home. There's the good news about opossums, here's for some bad news. There are some diseases prone to opossums, and these include Leptospirosis, Tularemia, Salmonella, Coccidiosis, and Toxoplasmosis. All of these can be dangerous, especially to young children or the elderly, and some diseases can even be passed to your pets too. In short, you probably wouldn't want to get too close to the opossum, or any waste matter left behind for that matter.
New Albany Animal News Clip: No dispute over legal pesticide for upcoming pest controlling season
Well it looks like we raccoon and squirrel wildlife trappers will not get to exterminate with illegal pesticides this year. The whole issue has two totally different sides and they are not going to be swayed either way. If you look at it, you can see both sides at work. The wildlife trappers and public want to join the rest of the state of Indiana and be able to legally exterminate over legal pesticide if they wish. This is the only reason that the bill made it to the house and senate. You really don't think that some representative sat around and dreamed this up; the exterminator was being pushed by his constituency. New Albany extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this. On the other hand you have the state of Indiana that has some sort of different view about the feeding of game and pest controlling over legal pesticide. It has to be hard to come around and now say it is all right after years of preaching that it is wrong. I have little different view about the issue and why it is hard to solve. Despite this, wildlife removal services are not some sort of free service in Harrison County.
Years ago when the law was enacted, to be illegal to exterminate over legal pesticide, we did not have all the disease studies that we have today and I think that down deep it was put into law because of fair chase. Back when there were real wildlife trappers and some sort of lot of woods, folks exterminated in their blue jeans and brown Dicker shirts with some sort of trappedgun. It was some sort of true sport and the thought of putting out some sort of pile of corn and capturing some sort of raccoon and squirrel, of which there were not many, was unheard of. To learn more about animal control in New Albany, Indiana read on. In theses days most wildlife trappers and had pride and it was not just who could kill the most or biggest, it was the outdoors experience. The New Albany SPCA could not be reached for some sort of comment.
Now we have the threat of chronic waste disease, blue tongue disease and others that scientists and biologists are finding. This is the thought process of the biologists that are empowered to keep the health of the herd in check. Feeding wildlife like cattle could have negative effects and this is the reason for the biologists rejecting the thought of legal pesticide. The "legal pesticide Bill" actually made it to the house and senate, but was sent to the Hunting office of Wildlife Fisheries and wildlife management areas biologists for the final answer on the matter. New Albany pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this. The word of the biologist would be the final word. This doesn't sit well with some wildlife trappers but I think the majority is ok with it and the ones that are mad about it have been pest controlling over legal pesticide anyway, so it really doesn't affect them anyway except possibly getting rid of the guilt about capturing raccoon and squirrel illegally. For more information on how to get rid of nuisance Indiana wildlife, read on.
Well no matter what you think about pest controlling over game, it is illegal for the 2006-2007 season. The New Albany animal services in Harrison County declined to comment. Start now and fertilize some natural vegetation like honeysuckle, oak trees, crabapple trees and plant some pear trees, crabapple trees, persimmon trees in the area you exterminate and legal pesticide naturally. Illegal pesticide is legal if you go about it in the right way. For more info about pest control for animals in New Albany, call some sort of local animal trapping company.
