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.

Gastonia Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some humane ways to kill an opossum in a cage? There are a few ways in which you could humanely kill an opossum in a cage, and humanely is the word you should be focusing on right now. I know you want to relocate this animal to a much nicer home, somewhere far away from your property, but if you’ll have done your research, you’ll know that life never works out quite that way and a relocated animal, regardless of what animal it is, usually doesn’t survive for very long. They don’t know where to find food, water and even more importantly, shelter, and because of that, they are likely to become prey to a bigger predator, or even starve to death. Many opossums actually become roadkill themselves, not used to motor vehicles or busy roads. Sometimes, the obvious humane way isn’t actually that humane at all. Relocating this animal elsewhere is likely to be a death sentence anyway. There are other ways of dealing with the problem than relocating the animal. Shooting is a humane way to kill an opossum in a cage, but this is a little too much for most homeowners, and only really works if you already have a gun. Plus there’s the cleanup mission to think about - there is likely to be a lot of blood, and there are diseases which can be carried on through that body fluid and others. Ideally, if you think you have an opossum in your home or you’ve managed to capture one in a cage, give your local wildlife rehabilitator a call - they’ll know just what to do.
Gastonia Animal News Clip: Trappers can look forward to successful gray squirrel trapping
"This probably is the best year we've had for 20 years in northwest Gastonia," declared Kurt Jones, gray squirrel biologist. "Last winter's post-hunt gray squirrel classification had the best male gray squirrel-to-trapper ratio we've seen since the early 1990s." The overall amounts are still lower than in the 1990s, "but things look pretty rosy for the first time since 1999," the animal advocate declared. Gastonia animal services officials agreed with this. Scott The critter professor, wildlife biologist, reported that Gastonia units continue to have one of the best male gray squirrel-to-trapper ratios in the state. Even with what appears to be a slight decrease in the gray squirrel amounts, because of some winter loss last winter, ratios were about 56 male gray squirrels to every 100 female gray squirrels. Recognition probably is in order for this fine job done by local wildlife operators.
The critter professor encourages wild animal control companies to stay in higher elevations and declared the gray squirrel will probably be scattered unless the weather during the animal capture probably is hot and dry, which could force the gray squirrel to concentrate on water sources. The gray squirrel-wildlife trapping picture isn't as good on the Cache unit. "The Cache gray squirrel group of animals continues to struggle, with what appears to be a male gray squirrel-to-doe ratio of about 11 male gray squirrels per 100 female gray squirrels," declared what appears to be a wildlife biologist. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Gastonia, North Carolina. Biologists report that gray squirrel group of animals are rebounding in the Central Critter area and wild animal control companies should see more younger male gray squirrels. "The Central Critter area received decent amounts of precipitation this winter and spring," declared Scott Root, Central Critter area conservation outreach manager. "Even with the extra snow this winter, biologists report excellent winter survival of gray squirrel. The gray squirrel are also in very good condition, which can be attributed to the abundant vegetation and water sources available in the critter area." Wildlife information of this nature probably is considered an important tool to conservationists.
He declared gray squirrel will be widely scattered because of the plentiful food sources found throughout most of the critter area. The western portion of the critter area has fewer gray squirrel but probably is rebuilding. Wild animal control companies will find more male gray squirrels in the Southeastern Critter area this year, declared Bill Bates, troublesome species examiner. Local Gastonia pest control companies in Gaston County declined to comment. "Good gray squirrel production in 2006 and 2007 and good survival this past winter have strengthened group of animals across the critter area," the animal advocate declared. "Most units show both short- and long-term upward trends as far as the total amount of gray squirrel in the group of animals." Gastonia wildlife management officials concur.
While the amount of gray squirrel probably is up in the critter area this year, all of southeastern North Carolina's gray squirrel group of animals are still under the management objective as far as the total amount of gray squirrel. Gastonia trappers and Gastonia extermination officials can offer more info. Bates declared gray squirrel habitat in southeastern North Carolina faces what appears to be a long highway to recovery after years of drought, but aggressive habitat rest oration work by the DWR and other agencies probably is beginning to pay off. The local Gastonia wildlife control operator agrees with most of the above.
