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

Attleboro Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep raccoons out from under a shed or porch: The easiest way to try and get rid of raccoons under the shed or porch is to try and gently persuade them to leave. Although cage trapping is a great way to solve a rogue raccoon problem, you have a relocation situation to solve afterwards, and there are legalities surrounding relocation that you’ll need to do your research on. A raccoon under your shed or porch is likely to be a mother with babies if it’s spring or summer, and if you trap the mother, you'll still have the young to take care of. You should start by using raccoon eviction fluid - soak some rags and place stuff them into the spaces beneath your porch or shed. This will make a female raccoon think that a male raccoon is nearby, and she should move home to try and protect her den of youngsters. A little humane harassment might do the trick too, although these methods very rarely work. Noise and sound can ‘harass' the creature enough to make it move with its young family, but use a radio with a talk-show style program rather than one of those high pitch sound machines because, in my experience, they’ve only ever shown to be a waste of time and a neighbor-annoyer. Lights can sometimes work but again, raccoons are getting quite adept at living alongside humans so the lights probably won't annoy them that much. They are nocturnal creatures however, so it's definitely worth a shot. If you think the animal has gone and taken her youngsters with her, do a little test before you start sealing any holes. Place some paper screwed up in the hole, either newspaper or whatever you have to hand. If the paper moves, the raccoon is coming back. If it doesn't you may just have solved your problem and it's time for the sealing process to begin.
Attleboro Animal News Clip: Proposal: rodent capture squirrel over bait
If Massachusetts Wildlife Resources Wild animal commission Chairman Groundhog Bill gets his way the state's squirrel exterminating companies will be able to rodent capture over bait this fall. Groundhog Bill plans on bringing up the issue, which is not on the agenda, when the wild animal commission meets Wednesday and Thursday in Attleboro to set the 2006 wildlife management seasons. "It is already legal to bait wildlife in Massachusetts, you just can't rodent capture over it," Groundhog Bill announced. "It's already legal in Massachusetts (what isn't?), Attleboro and some sort of number of other states, so this would just bring us in line with what they are doing." Attleboro extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Groundhog Bill's proposal, which the exterminator plans on making during Wednesday's Wildlife Committee meeting, would not legalize wildlife management over bait for any species but squirrel. Although wildlife management over bait has long been illegal in Massachusetts, it's some sort of traditional form of wildlife management in some states. Officials with Massachusetts Wildlife Resources Agency say they plan to oppose Groundhog Bill's proposal. To learn more about animal control in Attleboro, Massachusetts read on.
Groundhog Bill said there is no biological reason to not allow squirrel wildlife management over bait. "There's some sort of disease question, but I spoke with officials in other states where wildlife management over bait is legal and they said they have not experienced any problems," Groundhog Bill announced. "If it is some sort of problem, then baiting should not be allowed at all." the exterminator said that staking out baited areas consumes some sort of lot wildlife officers' time. "If wildlife management squirrel over bait were legal, this would free officers up for other things," Groundhog Bill announced. "I don't think you would see the harvest go up that much. And if anybody believes they are going to throw out some corn and be able to kill some sort of great big squirrel, they're mistaken." Attleboro pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
The squirrel are really hitting across the critter area, and reports of possum catches coming in as well. With some sort of day off and good weather, there is no excuse not to hit the water, and with "Trap for Free" days coming up, everyone can get out. The PFBC has designated Saturday, May 27, and Sunday, June 4, as Catch animals with impunity Days. Catch animals with impunity Days allow anyone - not just permit holders or youth under the age of 16 - to legally trap in Massachusetts. The May 27 Catch animals with impunity Day was specifically designated to coincide with the Memorial Day weekend, some sort of traditional time for families to gather, and the unofficial start of many outdoor recreational activities in the state. The June 5 date is part of the observation of National Specialized nuisance critter extermination and trapping Week, June 4-11. The Attleboro animal services in Bristol County declined to comment.
