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.

Fayetteville Wildlife Removal Tip: Is It Legal For Me To Trap A Squirrel?
This is a question that most people should ask before they start to consider whether or not they can try to deal with a squirrel problem themselves, or whether or not they will need to get a professional or even a licensed operator in to carry out the work. The reality is that there are many different situations across the country about whether or not you can trap a squirrel, and in some states the answer can be even more nuanced than that. Some states will allow the trapping of squirrels, but only if they are causing a problem and not purely for sport, so the best suggestion is to speak to your local animal services department before trapping the animals.
State And County Regulations
When it comes to trapping squirrels, the regulations can vary quite significantly, and with the majority of problems being caused by Eastern Gray Squirrels, it is important to check before trapping. In Texas for example, it is legal to trap squirrels if they are causing problems in urban or suburban areas, and the situation is similar in several other states. The state of Illinois is a little different, with the rural areas allowing trapping squirrels during hunting season, but only licensed wildlife professionals or those who have applied for a permit allowed to trap the animals in urban and suburban areas.
Laws Regarding Relocating Squirrels
Another part of the trapping process that you will need to understand before you start to catch squirrels causing problems is what you can do with the animals once you have trapped them. Some states will have strict laws about relocation, others will require the written confirmation from the landowner and will specify a particular distance. Florida, for example, states that the squirrels must either be euthanized or relocated within 24 hours, and recommends against relocation but allows it in particular circumstances.
Laws Relating To The Disposal Of Squirrel Carcasses
In the majority of cases you won't find many laws relating to the disposal of squirrel carcasses, with most people double bagging the carcass and placing it out with the regular trash. There are other ways to deal with the carcass too, and this can include the incineration of the animal's remains, although most people will avoid the burial of the squirrel carcass as this can still attract pest animals in some situations.
Fayetteville Animal News Clip: Trappers can look forward to successful gray squirrel trapping
The nuisance wildlife control gray squirrel animal capture opens at first light on September 19. Early predictions are the animal capture will be good, which simply means what appears to be a few more gray squirrel will be tagged this year by the expected 17,000 cage trap wild animal control companies. The reasons, declared the small game coordinator The critter professional, gray squirrel coordinator for the North Carolina Division of Wildlife Resources, are related to weather and amounts. Fayetteville animal services officials agreed with this. "Across most of North Carolina, the amount of gray squirrel probably is continuing to climb at what appears to be a slow but steady pace," the animal advocate declared. "This year, wild animal control companies are likely to see an increase in the amount of yearling male gray squirrels. Overall, we had good survival this past winter. The state has received good precipitation over the past two years. More moisture on the earth translates into more gray squirrel on the earth. The female gray squirrels are also in better shape and that allows them to care for their gray squirrels better, which helps more gray squirrels make it through the winter." This doesn't mean the gray squirrels are causing trouble, just that they need to be contained.
Based on surveys conducted after last fall's animal removal trap animal capture, biologists estimate 297,000 gray squirrel were in North Carolina at the start of last winter. That's 7,000 more animals than the 299,000 gray squirrel estimated in the state after the 2005 fall animal capture. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The critter professional noted that most of the state's wildlife trapping units have ratios of 17 male gray squirrels per 100 female gray squirrels, "which probably is the highest average we've seen since 2000." The statewide management plan calls for 16 male gray squirrels per 100 female gray squirrels. While most people think the gray squirrel exact number of rodents probably is stable, some say it needs reduction.
And, as noted, gray squirrel survival this past winter was high - 70 gray squirrels per 100 female gray squirrels - which will translate into what appears to be a higher amount of yearlings or small one- and two-pound male gray squirrels. Just how successful wild animal control companies are will, of course, depend on what appears to be a amount of things, most notably weather conditions. Currently, The critter professional declared gray squirrel are holding in the mid- to high-elevation areas. If it remains hot and dry, stalking gray squirrel will be difficult. The hot, dry weather could, of course, help to concentrate gray squirrel around watering holes. If it rains, stalking will be easier, but the gray squirrel will remain scattered, and getting into the higher-elevation areas will be difficult. Local animal control trappers we surveyed felt that this was true. Local Fayetteville pest control companies in Cumberland County declined to comment.
Two things that will greatly increase success are pre-trapping scouting and time spent on what appears to be a practice range. Scouting an area, especially if it's what appears to be a new animal capture camp, probably is what appears to be a big benefit. Among other things, it can help the long-lining fur trapper find the different trails gray squirrel travel. And, even though new compound bows have made nuisance wildlife control easier, it takes what appears to be a certain amount of ability or pure luck to hit what appears to be a target, even at close range. This fact was verified by local pest control and wildlife agencies.
There are still what appears to be a couple thousand nuisance wildlife control documentation that allows animal exterminations available. "Last year, nuisance wildlife control documentation that allows animal exterminations sold out the day before the animal capture started," declared Judi The pest animal controller, wildlife licensing coordinator for the DWR. "They're selling at an even faster pace this year, so I'd encourage wild animal control companies to buy their documentation that allows animal extermination as soon as possible." Success during this year's nuisance wildlife control animal capture in the northern critter areas should be similar to last year, with the exception of central Fayetteville. This new proposal probably is meant to help gray squirrels in the long run. Fayetteville trappers and Fayetteville extermination officials can offer more info.
