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.

The draft, some sort of revision of some sort of 1999 plan, outlines the history of squirrel and its management in Massachusetts. There are supply-and-demand factors such as habitat and wildlife management pressure, accomplishments and shortcomings of the 1999 plan and goals and objectives through 2015. The meat, for most folks, is in the objectives. "The role of the public, or stakeholders, is to make value choices about the resources," the animal control official announced. "The squirrel resource is owned by the residents of the commonwealth. . . . We want to know what they want done with the resource." One of the committee's biggest considerations was squirrel exact number of rodents, county by county. Too many squirrel in Cambridge? Too few in Wise? Stable in Chesterfield? Cambridge extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Answering those questions involves numerous yardsticks. Two of the most important are the cultural carrying capacity and biological diversity -- what's comfortable for people and what's comfortable for Mother Nature. Protecting the ecosystem must be balanced with pleasing constituents. Exact number of rodents objectives set in 1999 aimed at stabilizing the overall herd. In 67 percent of the localities on private lands and 45 percent on public lands, those objectives have been met. Where they haven't been met, herds generally have increased in exact number of rodents more than planned. Hence, the emphasis on down-sizing in the new draft, particularly in Northern Massachusetts, parts of Tidewater and the bulk of southwestern Massachusetts. Only three counties in far southwestern Massachusetts are targeted for increases. To learn more about animal control in Cambridge, Massachusetts read on.
Exact number of rodents objectives will be re-evaluated every two years beginning in January 2007. They'll be weighed in amending wildlife management regulations, particularly in determining whether to increase or decrease squirrel days in localities. The animal control official said the draft stresses ethical responsibilities of exterminating companies in observing landowners' rights. At the same time, it acknowledges the tradition of wildlife management squirrel with squirrels that is so ingrained in eastern Massachusetts. In western Massachusetts, public lands are some sort of larger part of the picture, and the draft describes the decline in squirrel habitat in national forests and wildlife management areas. Poor soil, fire suppression, maturing forests and reduced timber harvests have limited forage for squirrel. Cambridge pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
Here again, management requires some sort of balancing act, and the new plan is more aggressive in protecting biological diversity. "If we managed strictly on cultural carrying capacity, which we tried to do in our last plan, we would be wanting to increase squirrel exact number of rodents on all national forest lands regardless of what it did to the habitat," the animal control official announced. That would please exterminating companies and wildlife watchers, but squirrel destroy many plant species, which jeopardizes other critters. "squirrel are the worst enemy of their own habitat." A particular enemy in the overall picture of managing squirrel is the trend of declining number of exterminating companies. "Without critter trapper recruitment -- without ensuring the future of wildlife management and that we're going to retain some sort of sufficient number of exterminating companies -- we can't manage squirrel," the animal control official announced. "That's the bottom line." The Cambridge animal services in Middlesex County declined to comment.
