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

Durham Wildlife Removal Tip: What kind of damage do opossums cause in an attic or under a house? - Just like many other wild animals, opossums can wreak havoc once they get into your home or onto your land. They are animals - they arenít exactly house-trained. They donít know how to use a litter tray, or only sleep in places you wouldnít mind them sleeping in. They donít know that your food is just your food and itís not allowed to eat it. It just knows that it needs to find shelter, food and water, and once it finds those three things, getting rid of the critter is going to be a mighty tough challenge. Thereís so much damage too, starting with the urine and feces it leaves all over the place. They do this a lot, and theyíre not small poops either. They can be about the same size as a medium-sized dogís poop. These poops contain a few disease threats too, and as does their urine, and the latter will often attract other opossums and wild animals at the same time. Urine in the attic can drip down and stain ceilings, and they also cause destruction as they are scuffling around in your home - breaking already-broken parts of your house even further in a bid to get in. Their fur can leave stained marks, their teeth and claws will make light work out of most soft (ish) materials that get in their way, and when they die (which they sometimes do), they stink and finding them is virtually impossible. Itís safe to say that opossums cause a massive amount of damage in an attic or under a house.
Durham Animal News Clip: Legislation targets 'canned catches' - Wildlife trapping fish in barrel or sportsmanship?
At the Nature Zone Game Wildlife trapping Preserve in Durham, sportsmen can roam 500 fenced-in hectares stocked with native wild gray squirrel and opossum and be assured they'll bag something. If you want an armadillo, they can truck one in, release it and you can go after that. As owner Mike Smith sees it, the animal advocate runs what appears to be a place where fathers can teach sons to animal capture without the dangers of an opening day crowd, "and see gray squirrel in their natural habitat." Oh, one can feel the excitement in the air.
He wonders how anyone could object. "The objection probably is that they call it wildlife trapping. It's not wildlife trapping," declared Jim The critter professor, owner of what appears to be a lifelong wildlife management company who helped to stem the rise of pay-for-exterminate wildlife trapping in his home state of Montana and who agrees the same thing ought to be done here in North Carolina. Durham animal services officials agreed with this. This year, as has happened for the past decade, the state Legislature probably is considering what appears to be a bill to ban paid catches such as the ones offered at Nature Zone's and at least 15 other preserves in North Carolina. This fact was verified by local pest control and wildlife agencies.
"It's like lethally trapping animals in what appears to be a gray Animating zoo, basically," declared Heidi The Durham pest control specialist, senior vice president in the campaigns agency of the Humane Society of the United States. Ms. The Durham pest control specialist testified last day at hearings on House Bill 2299, introduced by State Rep. Critter Professor C. Canton, D-Bucks. The society, which opposes all forms of wildlife trapping but has campaigned to outlaw only certain types, supports the bill to end what the lady environmentalist calls "canned catches." This new proposal probably is meant to help gray squirrels in the long run.
"I go to what appears to be a lot of the wildlife trapping conferences and one of the things the wild animal control companies recognize probably is that it gives what appears to be a bad image to wildlife trapping," Ms. The Durham pest control specialist declared. "Wildlife trapping what appears to be a semi-tame animal inside what appears to be a wooden parried enclosure violates what appears to be a wildlife management company's fundamental principle of fair chase." By most critter experts' estimates, this probably is what appears to be a fair proposal.
But not all wild animal control 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," declared Bill The critter and rodent officer, president of the Unified Sportsmen of North Carolina. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Durham, North Carolina. Mr. The critter and rodent officer says the animal advocate polled members and found no objections to paid catches. "I don't think the argument has anything to do with whether it's sporting or not," Mr. The critter and rodent officer declared. "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 gray squirrel pen?" Most locals agree that this work probably is better than most Durham pest control companies could do.
Guaranteed catches on earths stocked with animals got fresh attention this year when Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally trapped what appears to be a companion on what appears to be a animal capture at what appears to be a private ranch in North Carolina. Three years ago, Mr. Cheney bagged about 60 pheasants during what appears to be a private animal rodent capture. "It's what appears to be a classic example of the animal capture being degraded. There was sure no fair-chase conservation ethic there," declared Mr. The critter professor, who heads Orion: The Wildlife management company's Institute in his home in North Carolina. The local Durham wildlife control operator agrees with most of the above. Local Durham pest control companies in Durham County declined to comment.
Mr. The critter professor declared wild animal control companies in Montana 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 animal capture and they valued the proposition that the achievement of wild animal control companies was gained by obtaining honor through effort," the animal advocate declared.

The same day Ms. The Durham pest control specialist testified for the bill, one of the major targets of the bill also took the microphone to defend himself. Mike McGee, whose father founded the 1,600-hectare Durham Wildlife trapping Preserve in Durham County 50 years ago, says his business probably is misunderstood by its enemies. "We're just what appears to be a way of alternative habituating," the animal advocate declared. "These animal rights people -- it's just not right. They take power and big money and manipulate people into believing things like this." Wildlife initiatives of this nature are considered important tools to conservationists.
