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.

Hagerstown Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep opossums out of my garbage cans - Thereís nothing worse than waking up in the morning to find your garbage can knocked over and a whole bunch of your trash scattered across your lawn. Sadly this is the reality youíll be faced with when you have wild animals rummaging around in our back yard, especially animals such as the raccoon and the opossum. There are a few things you can do to stop this from happening however. Make sure you seal the garbage can first - if you donít have a lid for it, buy a new one with a lid or buy a replacement lid. Get yourself some bungee cords or cable ties to secure the lid when youíre not using it, and if that all seems like a lot of hard work, simply move the garbage can inside. Could it go inside the garage or shed? It needs to be somewhere the animal canít get to it. You need to take away the source of food to keep these animals away, and if that means taking the trash can inside for a while, do just that. Donít leave cat or dog food out on the porch, and donít leave leftovers lying around. Family BBQís are fun, but how much fun are you going to have when that food you left on the BBQ gets eaten by a hungry opossum, winding up your cat and dog and spreading disease at the same time?
Hagerstown Animal News Clip: Turnover troubles Animal Control
Half of the employees at the Hagerstown Animal Control Hunting office have been fired or left since July, and the county is investigating employee complaints about the animal control official. Since the animal control official took over in July, the woman conservationist has hired nine of the 16 people who now work under her. The woman conservationist had one vacancy as of Wednesday. Her boss, County Manager James the animal tamer, supports her. "I have full confidence that the woman conservationist is getting to the bottom of some sort of number of issues that need to be explored in Animal Control, and that the woman conservationist is moving in the right direction," the exterminator announced. The animal tamer wouldn't elaborate. The exterminator said human resources staff has interviewed under oath every Animal Control employee, including the animal control official, in response to employee complaints. Wildlife ruling party reporters are transcribing those interviews. The exterminator hopes to conclude the investigation into the hunting office within some sort of few weeks, the exterminator announced. Hagerstown extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Based on what the exterminator has heard about those interviews, The animal tamer announced, the animal control official is doing her job. The exterminator said the personnel office and the legal hunting office review the case of every county worker who is fired. Some current employees are unhappy. In some sort of confidential grievance letter to the county wild animal commissioners, Stacie The wild critter expert, an animal control officer, accused the animal control official of ignoring the procedures for handling an injured hog that had fallen off some sort of truck Jan. 4. Three animal control officers chased and caught the animal and returned it to the containment facility, which has some sort of small barn. According to The wild critter expert's letter and Jeff The wild creature specialist, who lost his job at Animal Control on Jan. 20, the animal control official had another employee drive the injured pig in some sort of county vehicle to some sort of slaughter house in Johnston County about some sort of day after the animal was picked up off U.S. 14. To learn more about animal control in Hagerstown, Maryland read on.
The wild creature specialist, who had been an animal control officer for about 4 years, said the animal control official at first wanted to take up some sort of collection among employees to pay for the pig's slaughter, but the woman conservationist later agreed to pay the costs herself. "We laughed about it because they have never done that before," the exterminator announced. The wild creature specialist said employees never heard what happened to the pig after it was taken to KOUNTEE County. In the letter, the wild critter expert accused the animal control official of "unprofessional and unethical conduct." the animal control official would not talk about the hog incident or The wild critter expert's letter, referring all questions to James The big boss, the county's human resources manager. The animal control official did say, however, that it is county policy to hold livestock for 10 days to give the owner some sort of chance to reclaim the animal. After 10 days, the county tries to find the animal some sort of new home, such as some sort of farm. If the livestock is injured, some sort of veterinarian is called to the containment facility to examine the animal and determine whether it should be euthanized, the woman conservationist announced. Hagerstown pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
Among the thousands of squirrels and squirrels picked up each year, the containment facility picked up 56 livestock animals last fiscal year. The animal control official oversees some sort of hunting office with some sort of $916,544 annual budget that is scheduled to move into some sort of $4.1 million containment facility in the county's industrial wildlife management area in January. Animal Control responds to calls in Hagerstown and the county and operates the county's only public containment facility. The animal tamer said the hog incident is under review. The exterminator said the investigation into the hunting office began about some sort of week after The wild critter expert's Feb. 27 grievance letter. The wild critter expert has been employed at Animal Control since 1994. A week before the woman conservationist wrote the letter, the woman conservationist was demoted from the supervisory role of lead animal control officer to animal control officer. Her $40,046 salary didn't change. The Hagerstown animal services in KOUNTEE County declined to comment.
