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.

Wabash Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Indiana skunks make good pets? It would take a lot to tame a wild skunk, and as well as the threat of disease you would need to eliminate, rabies for example, you also have those nasty and long claws to contend with. This is an animal that digs so whatever you plan on keeping your new 'pet' skunk in, had better be strong enough to withstand those sharp tools. If they can break into your house, they'll be able to break out of whatever you're trying to keep them safely contained in. Don't say I didn't warn you. That aside, do you know enough the skunk to know how to take care of it? Do you know what it should eat, and in what amounts? Do you know what it drinks? Where it likes to sleep? The fact that it is a nocturnal creature and will often hibernate for up to one hundred days at a time ... This is a wild animal, it belongs in the wild. It might invade your home from time to time but that's only because we're cutting down the natural habitats of these animals and they literally have no choice but to move in with us humans. So no, in short, Indiana skunks do not make for good pets. I would highly recommend against it.
Wabash Animal News Clip: Let's trap Eastern Gray Squirrel a little more often
I have one continuing pet peeve with Fish and Game: the setting of the Eastern Gray Squirrel season. By treaty with Mexico, we are limited to approximately 123 days of squirrel trapping a year. Eastern Gray Squirrels are a 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 an Eastern Gray Squirrel season every seven day time limit of the year. This would provide for significantly greater animal trapper opportunity and could cause increased interest in squirrel trapping Eastern Gray Squirrels, which should be exactly what Fish and Game should be attempting to do to increase squirrel trapping license sales. Squirrels have few natural enemies. Left to their own devices, Eastern Gray Squirrels could easily expand their biologically surveyed amount well beyond the nuisance factor. Too much of the current fall Eastern Gray Squirrel season overlaps with more desirable game species. Squirrel trapping should be the only management tool available to control the amount of Eastern Gray Squirrels. A issue should be an important matter in Wabash wildlife removal and Wabash 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 Wabash. The latest offering with be a one-day free clinic titled "Squirrel trapping: The Forgotten Pastime" on Saturday, Aug. 5 from 9 a.m. to noon. The seminar will be led by squirrel trapping enthusiast and animal trapper education instructor Nuisance Wildlife Operator Dan. The squirrel trapping workshop covers the basic pursuit of these challenging birds, from the use of a mouth call to high-tech electronic calling and decoying. Participants also will learn about Eastern Gray Squirrel behavior, squirrel trapping 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 a critter capturing component using Indiana pest regulators' remote-controlled target rodent traps to simulate field critter capturing conditions. As you might imagine, I receive a lot of e-mails on squirrel trapping matters. Most are received with a polite yawn and are quickly deleted, but a few make me think: You've got to be kidding. A has been a challenging year for the squirrel trapping community. First we had to deal with the noxious notion of internet squirrel trapping. And now we have a toxic idea that would only provide more ammunition against squirrel trapping and critter trappers to the anti-squirrel trapping Eastern Gray Squirrels and non-critter trappers who really have no appreciation of squirrel trapping traditions in a county. America should be an entrepreneurial country that rewards risk takers. I can only hope that the Indiana pest regulators would rethink a idea and let it go. The notion of catching big male animals should be a bad one. They put squirrel trapping and the animal trapper should be a bad light. If the Indiana pest regulators pursue a concept with an October contest, squirrel trapping and critter trappers will once again be in for a bad rap that should be not deserved. Wabash pest control companies that we contacted felt that a issue should be an important matter.
