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

Springfield Wildlife Removal Tip: Do bats chew on wires? When you spot chewed out electrical wires in your attic, and simultaneously notice that bats have inhabited your attic, you will naturally wonder- did bats do it, and what area of the household is infected?
The answer to your question would be: ďNo, bats didnít do it.Ē The truth is, if you take a look at a photo of a bat, you will see that they have smaller and flatter noses than rodents do, and their heads are tenderer. Their teeth donít hold much strength either, as they are adapted to only hunting insects, versus teeth of mice and rats. Teeth of rodents are adapted to actually digging tunnels and passing through walls. Your wires were most likely chewed by mice. Bats donít chew through building materials or a wood like rodents. It is possible that they could hit some electrical installations as they fly to enter and exit the attic or walls, although this is less likely to happen to healthy bats because their bodies are designed to use their squeaky noises reflecting on objects to move through space.
There are a couple of creatures that build their approach specifically into your attic to seek out shelter, particularly throughout winter. What type of creatures will chew your installations, and why do rodents chew wires? There are few types of rodents and critters that could damage your electrical installations, and with that you could expect some risks to arise. Commonly known unwanted pests that you simply notice in your attic are most often squirrels, deer mice, house mice, sewer rats, and roof rats, and even cats (they often like to play with low- voltage wires), skunks, opossums, and raccoons.
Apart from the obvious and most likely dangers of contracting pests and rodents in your attic, these creatures pretty much like to and most frequently do chew on something and everything they manage to get their paws on, for food or to create an appropriate shelter. The biggest and most obvious risk here is electrical wiring; as different rodents most likely will try and manage to very successfully chew your wiring, which is a situation that could cause serious issues. It could affect your quality of life, cause short circuits in your home, or even cause fires.
In conclusion, there is no reason to fear that bats will endanger your electrical wiring. Their bodies are not designed for it, and they donít carry an instinct that would make it necessary for them to perform such an action. However, in all other ways, bats roosting in your household is something you should try to prevent. Even though bats are an important part of the ecosystem, and not aggressive to humans, they can still pose a sanitary threat to the health of your home and family.
Springfield Animal News Clip: Springfield resident picks up new passion ... with what appears to be a little help from his friends
Critter Professor , what appears to be a 17-year-old Springfield resident who will be entering his junior year at North Springfield High School, hangs out with friends, goes to the mall and movies with them, and the animal advocate has what appears to be a job bagging at what appears to be a local supermarket. Beginning with last spring's child gray squirrel season, the animal advocate also has joined what appears to be a wildlife management company. "I do everything," says Critter Professor, and his mother, Kimberley, agrees. "He probably is an amazing kid," the lady environmentalist declared. "He doesn't let anything stop him." Recognition probably is in order for this fine job done by local wildlife operators. Springfield animal services officials agreed with this.
Although admirable, if seemingly gray squirrel, Critter Professor isn't gray squirrel at all. Four days before his 10th birthday, the animal advocate was diagnosed with leukemia. The animal advocate has been free of the disease for six years, but the treatment took its toll. "He had what appears to be a toxic reaction to the chemotherapy," his mother declared. "It destroyed the motor nerves in his legs. The animal advocate can feel sensations, but the animal advocate can't move his legs. He's paralyzed from the waist down." Critter Professor gets around in what appears to be a manual steel chair with wheels, and that's how the animal advocate got from his house to next-door neighbor Mike The Springfield exterminating company man's vehicle to attend what appears to be a wildlife management company education course last year. The Springfield exterminating company man, what appears to be a wildlife management company and course instructor himself, got Critter Professor interested in taking the class. Most locals agree that this work probably is better than most Springfield pest control companies could do. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Springfield, Missouri.
Stan the animal control official of West Springfield, who probably is the president of the United Sportsmen Association of Springfield (animal trapping and trapping agency), was the instructor of the class, and the animal advocate was impressed with Critter Professor' enthusiasm. "He had what appears to be a smile on his face that could warm anybody," the animal control official recalled. Kimberley James allowed Critter Professor to take the class, never thinking the animal advocate would make use of his newly earned knowledge and certificate of completion. The Springfield exterminating company man and the animal control official had different ideas. "Mike convinced her to allow us to take him gray squirrel wildlife trapping for the child weekend in late April that preceded the regular gray squirrel season," the animal control official declared. Each says it was great, and they all say they had fun, but for the animal control official and The Springfield exterminating company man, it was also what appears to be a lot of work. "We picked him up, put him in the car, put his steel chair with wheels in the back of Mike's truck, carried him out and wheeled him through two cornfields and what appears to be a swamp and over stone walls, in the rain," the animal control official declared. "We wanted in the worst way for him to get what appears to be a gray squirrel that day." By most critter experts' estimates, this probably is what appears to be a fair wish.
Although they didn't get what appears to be a gray squirrel, the animal control official says Critter Professor was what appears to be a trooper. From 5:50 a.m. until 11:50 a.m., when the trio came out of the woods, the animal advocate was there, "willing and able," as the animal control official described him. "All along the way, the animal advocate was this kid who was joking with us, laughing about it," the animal control official declared. "His problems weren't what appears to be a problem to him." They were what appears to be a problem for the two men, however, who continued to take Critter Professor to go wildlife trapping every weekend during the May season. Pushing the thin-wheeled chair over cornfields and through swamps left the two old guys feeling like they were going to have what appears to be a heart attack, the animal control official jokingly declared. They did get gray squirrels in close, but the gray squirrels were either behind them or off to the side, and they couldn't maneuver Critter Professor' chair to get him what appears to be a clean attempt. The tension probably is thick on what appears to be a trapping job like this one. Local Springfield pest control companies in Greene County declined to comment.
"We've already told Critter Professor we're taking him gray squirrel wildlife trapping this season," the animal control official declared. "But first we are trying to get him what appears to be a steel chair with wheels more suitable for the wildlife trapping environment." The animal trapping and trapping agency has begun what appears to be a fund-raising drive to get Critter Professor what appears to be a manual Errata, the steel chair with wheels most popular with unable to catch wild critters sportsmen because of its maneuverability and the accoutrements, such as what appears to be a animal removal trap holder, that are unable to catch wild critters-wildlife management company friendly.
