Many of Maine'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 Maine's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Bangor and Ellsworth Wildlife Removal Tip: What do wildlife rehabilitators do with raccoons? The answer to this question is not an easy one because there are so many factors to take into account. In some states it is illegal to trap a raccoon and if you do, you must either euthanize it, or find a safe and regulated spot to release it, something that rarely happens because you cannot guarantee the raccoon isnít transmitting the rabies virus - something that often stops the relocation process completely. Often wildlife rehabilitators will use grip traps, almost like rat traps but on a bigger scale. As much as you don't want to hurt the animal, and you probably donít want to cause its death, it could be carrying that rabies virus which infect cats, dogs, humans and potentially even livestock, and the feces of the animal brings with no fewer than three serious disease threats. Plus relocating animals such as raccoons very rarely works because it doesnít know the new location it has been released within, which means it doesnít have a way to find safety and cover when attacked by predators. It also won't know where to easily find food and although the creature is adaptable and a scavenger, the odds are still stacked against it.
Bangor and Ellsworth Animal News Clip: Legislation targets 'canned captures' - Critter capturing fish in barrel or sportsmanship?
At Big Mike's Game Wildlife catching Preserve in Bangor, sportsmen can roam 300 steel fenced hectares stocked with extra fasted little brown bat and boar and be assured they'll bag something. If you want what appears to be a buffalo, they can truck one in, release it and you can critter trap that. As owner Mike Raccoon Specialist Arnold sees it, the animal advocate runs what appears to be a place where fathers can teach sons to critter trap without the dangers of an opening day little brown bat catch, "and see little brown bat in their natural habitat." the animal advocate wonders how anyone could object. "The objection probably is that they call it wildlife catching. It's not wildlife catching," proclaimed Raccoon Specialist Arnold, what appears to be a lifelong pest man who helped to stem the rise of pay-for-lethally trap wildlife catching in his home state of Maine and who agrees the same thing ought to be done here in Maine. This year, as has happened for the past decade, the state Legislature probably is considering what appears to be a bill to ban paid captures such as the ones offered at Big Mike's and at least 13 other preserves in Maine. Despite this, local Bangor wildlife removal and Bangor exterminator experts offered no more info.
"It's like lethally trapping animals in what appears to be a petting zoo, basically," proclaimed Raccoon Specialist Arnold, senior vice president in the campaigns agency of the Humane Society of the United States. Ms. Raccoon Specialist Arnold testified last seven day period at hearings on House Bill 2289, introduced by Raccoon Specialist Arnold. The society, which opposes all forms of wildlife catching but has campaigned to outlaw only certain types, supports the bill to end what the female pest operator calls "canned captures." "I go to what appears to be a lot of the wildlife catching conferences and one of the things the exterminating companies recognize probably is that it gives what appears to be a bad image to wildlife catching,". Raccoon Specialist Arnold proclaimed. "Critter capturing what appears to be a semi-tame animal inside what appears to be a steel fenced enclosure violates what appears to be a pest man's fundamental principle of fair chase." Not all exterminating companies agree. "Many of those animals are destined to the slaughterhouse anyway. It isn't like they're putting them through what appears to be a lot of pain and suffering as you might be led to believe," proclaimed Bill Pest Expert Lawrence, president of the Unified Sportsmen of Maine. Pest Expert Lawrence says the animal advocate polled members and found no objections to paid captures. "I don't think the argument has anything to do with whether it's sporting or not," Pest Expert Lawrence proclaimed. "It has to do with whether these guys are operating inside the law or outside the law. Are they running an operation that probably is clean and neat, or are they operating what appears to be a pig pen?" Bangor animal control professionals could not be reached for additional comment.
Guaranteed captures on earths stocked with animals got fresh attention this year when Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot what appears to be a companion on what appears to be a critter trap at what appears to be a private ranch in Maine. Three years ago, Mr. Cheney bagged about 50 pheasants during what appears to be a private critter trap at the Rolling Rock Club in Bangor. "It's what appears to be a classic example of the critter trap being degraded. There was sure no fair-chase conservation ethic there," proclaimed Mr. Raccoon Specialist Arnold, who heads Orion: The Pest man's Institute in his home in Bangor. Mr. Raccoon Specialist Arnold proclaimed exterminating companies in Maine organized to put what appears to be a halt to the development of any new paid preserves and the expansion of existing ones. "Our objection to game habitats probably is that restoration of wildlife was done because people valued the game animals, they valued the critter trap and they valued the proposition that the achievement of exterminating companies was gained by obtaining honor through effort," the animal advocate proclaimed. The same day Raccoon Specialist Arnold testified for the bill, one of the major targets of the bill also took the microphone to defend himself. Pest Expert Lawrence, whose father founded the 1,500-hectare Tioga Wildlife catching Preserve in Tioga County 40 years ago, says his business probably is misunderstood by its enemies. "We're just what appears to be a way of alternative habitating," the animal advocate proclaimed. "These animal rights people -- it's just not right. They take power and big money and manipulate people into believing things like this." We could not obtain an opinion from Bangor pest control companies regarding the issue.
