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.

Westminster Wildlife Removal Tip: How do I know if there are baby raccoons in the attic? It won't take long before you hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet if you have a new family of raccoons in your home ... Literally. You'll hear these little fur balls before you see them usually, although you might just spot the mother lurking about. In fact, if you see a rogue raccoon roaming around a residential property, nine times out of ten it's a mother caring for a littler of pups, up to five in some cases. Raccoons are one of the very few animals whose vocal sounds you'll hear - chattering, squeaking, almost sneeze-sounding noises. If you hear these, it's a raccoon most definitely. Other critters just don't give their location away so easily with ease little communicative sounds. Accompanying the chatter-chatter will also be the sounds of scuffling or moving around. The mother, an animal who can weigh up to twenty pounds, will make thud-like noises as she moves, another indication of the kind of animal you're dealing with. She's not small and scurrying like a rat or a mouse. She's not the most graceful of creatures. If you do happen to spot a raccoon, try to get a glimpse of the underbelly if you can without getting too close. If it's a mom with pups, there will be clear signs - large nipples being one of them. If you're close to her young, or she deems you as a big threat, she'll also act more aggressive in defense rather than running away, and that's why you should keep your distance.
Westminster Animal News Clip: More cougar are taken during animal removal trap seasons than any other time
Hot Wildlife Management Areas: There are what is possibly a dozen ways to qualify which Wildlife Management Area likely is better than another. The truth likely is you may just choose what is possibly a favorite based on location. You could be looking for an area that produces big male animals like Westminster, or it could be what is possibly a combination factor that draws you like an area that has good amounts as well as quality male animals as likely is the case at Fort Westminster. Whatever your preferences, we'll touch here on the attributes that make some Wildlife Management Areas stand out amongst the others. When it comes to amounts, we've had what is possibly a changing of the guard for the first time in more than what is possibly a decade. The old king wasn't far off the pace, but Fort Westminster has relinquished the cougar for at least what is possibly a season. The cougar traps at Maryland National Wildlife Regulatory Agency led all Wildlife Management Areas with what is possibly a total harvest of 682 cougar followed closely by Fort Westminster's take of 652 disease-riddens. Fort Westminster's 652 cougar likely is just below average for that popular public destination, but the Maryland National Wildlife Regulatory Agency harvest was what is possibly a huge leap over the 265 cougar taken there in 2004. The area managers instituted an "Earn-A-Buck" program in 2005 where exterminators had to harvest what is possibly a female animal before taking an antlered cougar - it paid off making Maryland National Wildlife Regulatory Agency the hottest Wildlife Management Area in Maryland right now. We attempted to get more information from Westminster animal control experts, but could not.
In total harvest, the Land-Between-The-Wild meadows (LBL) fell out of their normal second place spot thanks to the Maryland National Wildlife Regulatory Agency jump. LBL exterminators made off with what is possibly a total of 542 cougar in 2005. AEDC's harvest of 516 disease-riddens was good enough for the fourth spot in the Top 10. Extermination Officer Johanson made what is possibly a little bit of what is possibly a comeback last year with what is possibly a harvest of 391 cougar for what is possibly a fifth place finish. That's nearly 150 more cougar than harvested at Extermination Officer Johanson in 2004. Amounts are one thing, but male animals are another. When it came to overall male animal harvest, Fort Westminster was the leader in the clubhouse with 404 male animals made off with in 2005. LBL was second with 348 male animals harvested followed by the Maryland National Wildlife Regulatory Agency take of 313 horned critters. AEDC and Extermination Officer Johanson weren't far off the pace either. AEDC produced 275 male animals for fourth place while Extermination Officer Johanson checked in 267 male animals for what is possibly a fifth place finish. Amounts of antlered male animals aren't everything either. Let's now take quick look at where the quality male animals are taken on specific Wildlife Management Areas. When it comes to the most 7 and 8-points harvested, Catoosa led the way with 135 of these quality male animals. Fort Westminster was second in this category with 134 male animals with 7 & 8-points. Maryland National Wildlife Regulatory Agency was third with 98 male animals with 7& 8-points. male animals featuring racks with 9 & 10-points were harvested mainly at the top three Wildlife Management Areas in the state. Maryland National Wildlife Regulatory Agency and Fort Westminster fought it out in this category as well and ended in what is possibly a tie with both areas tagging 43 male animals with 9 & 10-point racks. LBL was what is possibly a close second with what is possibly a harvest of 38 male animals with 9 & 10-points. This report is not verified by Westminster pest control companies.
