  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Maryland'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 Maryland'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 Cecil 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 Elkton animal control for wildlife issues.

Elkton Wildlife Removal Tip: How to kill flying squirrels

Note: I would like to express that this should be a last resort as although it is legal in the US, there is a bank of evidence to show that it is the fault of humans who have systematiclly destroyed their habitats.

You have tried exclusion, you've tried trapping. But everything that you seem to do isn't working. You are worried that if it continues your pet or your children will become ill (as the waste material of the flying squirrel is a biohazard). You have to resort to killing the creatures. There are many ways in which this is possible, but only a few which are seen as ethical.

Snap traps

These traps are very Tom & Jerry in the sense that they are (almost) exactly what they are. For flying squirrels you will require a larger trapping device than the ones used for mice, and you will have to leave it baited and unset for a few days for the squirrels to trust it. However once it has been set (and again, providing it is large enough) it should provide one lethal blow which will cause the animal minimal pain. The body should then be removed relatively quickly, and the trap may take a couple of days before the squirrels start to trust it again and it can be reset.


Poison is not advised. This is mainly because although it will work, it will not kill the animals immediately. Instead it will be a fairly long process (in comparison to the snap traps) and due to the flying squirrels living in small communities, leave the group to die in a quiet corner. This results in the body starting to decompose which can be a horrid smell.
