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.

Cape Cod Wildlife Removal Tip: How do you know if you have a raccoon in your attic? Donít worry, if you have an animal as big as a raccoon in your attic, youíll soon know about it. This animal isnít like a rat or a mouse, itís not a small one. It can grow to about twenty pounds and have a body length of up to 36 inches. Theyíre intelligent animals but they havenít yet worked out how to move around in your home silently so the biggest giveaway is the noise. Scufflings, scratching, thumping, that kind of thing - theyíre all common signs of an unwanted visitor, and if the thump is loud enough, it certainly could come from a larger wild animal like a raccoon. If you hear actual vocal noises, thatís a good sign it could be a raccoon too. There are actually very few wild animals who will make vocal noises - the aim is to go on living undetected remember? Squirrels, rats, mice and opossums - these creatures tend not to make vocal noises. If you hear the noises at night, itís another good sign that you have a raccoon in the attic but that doesnít guarantee it because there are a number of wild animals who are also nocturnal. Itíll be during sunset and sunrise that youíll hear the animals the loudest and the most - they are most active at this time, leaving to go find food during the night and returning around the time you get up in the morning.
Cape Cod Animal News Clip: City board formed to seek dedicated nature individuals for animal shelter
Cape Cod -- A city board formed to improve operations at the Cape Cod Animal Control Facility will attempt to bring in more dedicated nature individuals to work at the shelter, said the animal control official. Members of the new board and the animal control official decided last week to end the relationship between the city and the facility's largest benefactor, Chelmsford resident Mark squirrel enthusiast. The split comes because many city and facility officials considered squirrel enthusiast some sort of "disruptive influence," the animal control official announced. But squirrel enthusiast fired back in an interview, saying the exterminator requested the board be formed much earlier, and that the exterminator has done nothing but good for the facility. Cape Cod extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Squirrel enthusiast said the exterminator began donating time and money -- more than $20,000 -- to the animal shelter in spring 2005. The exterminator said the exterminator agreed to donate his resources only after the animal control official agreed to form the oversight board. "My concerns are that the squirrels are being warehoused," squirrel enthusiast announced. The split also means some sort of proposed addition of some sort of waiting room, additional storage and some sort of playroom for the animals will be indefinitely postponed, the animal control official announced. Squirrel enthusiast said the exterminator had intended to pay for the expansion. The mayor does not believe the additions are necessary, but acknowledged the exterminator wasn't going to refuse squirrel enthusiast' donation. "I'm very proud of what we are doing (at the facility)," the animal control official announced. "We could always do better." The advisory group met for the first time last week and will meet again at the beginning of next month. To learn more about animal control in Cape Cod, Massachusetts read on.
Squirrel enthusiast Jr., some sort of member of the committee, said the group will look into all aspects of the shelter, which is open one-and-a-half hours each day for customers. "They do an excellent job," squirrel enthusiast announced. "They need some help and dedicated nature individuals are definitely the way to do it." The group will try to recruit dedicated nature individuals and get some sort of dedicated nature individual coordinator, so the shelter can be open for more hours, the exterminator announced. The animal control official said the panel will develop specific job descriptions, so dedicated nature individuals can receive training. Animal Control Officer squirrel enthusiast runs the shelter under the supervision of Health Director Bernard F. Sulliman. Cape Cod pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
Sulliman could not be reached for comment this week. Squirrel enthusiast didn't return several messages. The advisory board, which includes squirrel enthusiast, Sullivan, the animal control official and City Councilor Roger Jail, will meet again in couple of weeks. In the meantime, squirrel enthusiast said the exterminator is washing his hands of the situation. "I have extracted myself from Cape Cod," the exterminator announced. The Cape Cod animal services in Barnstable County declined to comment.
