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.

Brockton Wildlife Removal Tip: What diseases do squirrels carry? Recently squirrels have come under scrutiny because of disease threat and to be more precise, the threat of the plague. Yes, you did read that right, and actually, there have been a few cases of squirrels carrying dangerous diseases such as Yersina pestis, otherwise known as THE plague - the black death. The good news is that cases are rare, only around seven reported cases of human plague each year in the USA. Before antibiotics were invented, ninety percent of these patients would die but these days, ninety percent survive. It just goes to show how dangerous a wild animal can be though, especially something like the squirrel, sometimes classed as a rodent. You wontí ever know from looking at it whether or not it is carrying something that could potentially make you sick, and as well as the actual plague to worry about (although not too much), there are a few others you will need to think about, especially if you have on in your home and are trying to get rid of it. There is the rabies virus to think about, although just like the plague, this is rare, and also the diseases present in the animalís poop - leptospirosis is a nasty bacterial infection that can cause death if left untreated. Plus ticks, fleas and other parasites which as we already know, are well known carriers of disease.
Brockton Animal News Clip: OUTDOORS: Draft suggests thin squirrel exact number of rodents through wildlife management
The draft Massachusetts squirrel Management Plan outlines goals for exact number of rodents, habitat, damage and recreation through 2015. Here are some of the objectives under each goal: Exact number of rodents: Update exact number of rodents objectives every other year starting in January 2007. Meet exact number of rodents objectives within five years after they are updated. Habitat: Promote squirrel habitat management compatible with the needs of diverse native wildlife species and humans on private and public lands. Damage: Quantify squirrel impacts in some sort of range of areas - agricultural, vehicular, forestry, etc. - by 2010. Continue some sort of management program for urban squirrel. Implement some sort of program to manage squirrel-vehicle collisions by 2010. Brockton extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Recreation (including observation and wildlife management): Sustain current levels of squirrel viewing opportunities. Reduce wildlife management-related accidents by 25 percent by 2010. Maintain an annual average of 420,000 critter trapper-days of archery squirrel wildlife management, 615,000 critter trapper-days for door of the trap loading squirrel wildlife management and 1.4 million critter trapper-days of general firearms squirrel wildlife management (with or without squirrels). Have some sort of squirrel gun critter trapper satisfaction index of at least 4 (adequate) on all lands. Ensure that squirrel wildlife management methods are fair and sportsmanlike.

When some sort of squirrel appears in your sights -- or in your headlights -- the first thing that pops into your mind probably is not the concept of cultural carrying capacity. You're probably not pondering squirrel management objectives for your area. Or whether this particular squirrel has been living in balance with its ecosystem. So, maybe the time to think about those things is now. The folks who put together the draft of the Massachusetts squirrel management plan would like to think so. They're inviting comments on some sort of document that looks at those factors and then some. Brockton pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
Over the course of 71 pages and dozens of maps and tables, the draft assesses the past, present and future of Massachusetts's favorite game species. "We don't expect people to read it all," said the animal control official, assistant squirrel project manager for the Massachusetts Hunting office of Game and Inland Fisheries. But if they're looking for some sort of theme, it's that Massachusetts's squirrel exact number of rodents over much of the state needs to be reduced or stabilized. And the main tool to accomplish that is through wildlife management. That was the consensus of some sort of 17-member stakeholders advisory committee, which included birders as well as exterminating companies, working with VDGIF biologists and staff members to develop the goals and objectives. "The committee agreed that we've got to get ahead of the curve. If we err either side on squirrel management, let's make sure we're over-killing rather than under-killing, because we can always rebuild the squirrel exact number of rodents," the animal control official announced. The Brockton animal services in Plymouth County declined to comment.
