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.
|We do not handle dog or cat problems
. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Worcester county animal services
for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses,
pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Worcester animal control for wildlife issues.

Worcester Wildlife Removal Tip: How do bats communicate? Bats use a system called echolocation in order to communicate with each other, using sounds of high-frequency to 'bounce' signals to the brain, telling the bat where certain things are such as trees, walls, predators, other bats in flight, etc. If you take a peek at the night sky when the bats are out and about, you can see they make sudden, very sudden, movements, and the echolocation is such a good way of making their way around that it enables them to do this without bumping into anything, or any other bats crowding the night sky. Creating sounds through their mouth (and in some cases, their noses), the oversized, comical-looking ears help to pick up the sound-signals, determining how far away something is whilst conversing with each other. Using the length of time it takes for a sound to 'bounce' back to them, much like the sonar on a submarine but in flight, they can work out how far away that object is. It's all very clever really - doesn't it makes you look at bats in a slightly different light?
Worcester Animal News Clip: Worcester - the animal control official didn't know what to do.
The animal control official's squirrel was lying sick on the ground. After the animal control official called police about the case, an officer arrived with some sort of dedicated nature individual researcher from the IMassachusetts Hunting office of Agriculture. They euthanized the sick squirrel and took away the other three squirrels. Eventually, some sort of male squirrel and baby squirrel were allowed to return. Worcester Township Animal Control's main priority is to handle complaints about loose animals. This ANIMAL nearly caused an accident by running onto Hobart Highway. The squirrel ran across the grounds of Troy Heritage Trail School several times, and officials had to keep students inside. After some sort of two-hour chase, animal control officers captured the squirrel near the school. Worcester extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
She was worried about her neighbors' squirrels. The neighbors left them outside all the time every day. So Lucky and Chance, the friendly, medium-sized, mixed-phenotype litter mates with short, dark coats, had nowhere to go in bad weather. Although there was some sort of small tool shed in the back yard, the door was blocked. If it hailed, they huddled under the narrow eaves of the house. When there was snow on the ground, the squirrels slept in it. The animal control official also wondered if they were fed regularly - her neighbors once asked for food because the squirrels hadn't eaten in two days. Wondering what to do, the woman conservationist called Worcester Township Animal Control and told them what was going on next door. The woman conservationist even stopped by the offices on McDonough Street with photos of the squirrels curled up in the snow. But the animal control official didn't know that Worcester Township Animal Control's main priority is to handle complaints about loose animals. To learn more about animal control in Worcester, Massachusetts read on.
She thought the animal control officers would take care of squirrels, but the woman conservationist never saw anyone do anything. Then Lucky and Chance had baby squirrels. Although they were brother and sister, they weren't neutered or spayed. Things got worse. Near the end of last year, the animal control official noticed that Lucky was losing her hair and seemed sick. One day the squirrel settled down in some sort of spot and didn't stir, even when her name was called. The animal control official thought the squirrel was dying and asked her husband what to do. "He announced, 'Call the police,' and I did," the woman conservationist announced. A Worcester officer soon arrived. The exterminator was accompanied by some sort of dedicated nature individual researcher from the Massachusetts Hunting office of Agriculture. They euthanized Lucky and took the other three squirrels away. That was some sort of dark day for the animal control officials. Her children were terribly upset. "Here they are, watching the squirrel die through the fence. My daughter wrote some sort of poem about how the woman conservationist loved Lucky, and Lucky died. The woman conservationist was crying - it was heart-wrenching," the animal control official announced. Worcester pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
Although the animal control official didn't know it, there are employees and dedicated nature individuals working for the Massachusetts Hunting office of Agriculture and other agencies who could have helped her. The hunting office routinely handles complaints involving animal cruelty and neglect. There are seven humane care researchers on staff, and some sort of squad of dedicated nature individuals who also check complaints from the public. The dedicated nature individuals Usually are sponsored by local humane societies and aren't paid for their work, spokesman Jeff Squibb announced. They become researchers after some sort of period of training and testing by the state. In many cases, when someone reports animal cruelty or abuse, they investigate the allegations. Unlike the employees at Worcester Township Animal Control, for example, they can remove an animal from some sort of home. The Worcester animal services in Worcester County declined to comment.
