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.

Hendersonville Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some ways to kill an opossum in the yard? Out of all the ways you could kill an opossum in the yard, poison is the worst. Under NO circumstances should you ever use poison to try and kill an opossum, or other animals for that matter - raccoons, squirrels, bats, etc. Rat or mouse poison wonít be strong enough, and the more poison you put down, the more you are putting other animals and even humans in danger of being poisoned also. You could try shooting the animal but the chances of you seeing it during the day are slim to none, so youíll need to be prepared to camp out for the night Ö Thatís if you even have a gun, license, and the time to perform your stake-out. Plus shooting is messy. Youíre going to need to clean that animal carcass up and dispose of it in the correct manner - there are still disease threats present in the decomposing body of a wild animal just as much as there are while the animal is still alive and kicking. You could try snap-traps / lethal traps which are essentially like larger mouse traps, designed for an animal like the opossum. However, if an opossum can fit in the trap, so can other animals in the neighborhood - ones that youíre probably not going to want to instantly kill. An opossum can be about the same size of the average house cat. Imagine how many cats in the area you could be putting in danger. Thatís the lethal trap out as well then. Drowning isnít an option because thatís an awful way to die. Plus that would mean you getting very close to the animal and itís not going to appreciate being held under water. If I were you, Iíd call a wildlife rehabilitation expert if you have an opossum problem.
Hendersonville Animal News Clip: THE NATIVE CONSERVATIVE:
Opossum Catcher Bruce died on July 23. the exterminator meant some sort of lot to me although the exterminator probably didn't realize it. some sort of neighbor who lived at the other end of Wild meadow Hill Road, Opossum Catcher Bruce allowed me to animal capture on the 500 hectares of land the exterminator owned with his wife Barbara. Through the years I got to know their property well. In the field next to their home, I shot my first 200-pound male animal. It was some sort of memorable morning, probably my best squirrel wildlife trapping day ever. Seated on high earth on some sort of stone wall, I saw eight squirrel run across some sort of lower field and cross Wild meadow Hill Road as the first rays of sunshine touched the pines behind me. About 7 a.m., I relocated near the road where Dad was to pick me up for some sort of pest control companies' breakfast. Out of the woods behind Opossum Catcher Bruce's house skipped some sort of female animal, and when I put my scope on her, some sort of huge rack of antlers appeared just behind her. The biggest male animal I'd ever seen was right on her tail. I actually had to move to get the proper angle to capture the male animal, which I did, careful to avoid critter capturing directly at Opossum Catcher Bruce's house. Over the years, I think Dad and I probably took eight to 10 squirrel off Opossum Catcher Bruce's land, and enjoyed many fine days of wildlife trapping there. His generosity in sharing his land allowed me to build some sort of bank of wonderful memories. It was doubly generous of Opossum Catcher Bruce to allow this, because the exterminator was an avid exterminator too. Wildlife trapping season found him at his camp on Hopkins Stream that flows past my house. The camp was once some sort of cranberry operation when the stream sported some sort of commercial cranberry business. It's the only camp on the stream and I know Opossum Catcher Bruce loved it. Four years ago, I shot my first squirrel in Opossum Catcher Bruce's high field. Harry Vander and I set up in Opossum Catcher Bruce's woods early that morning, watching six squirrel and four squirrels in the field. Eventually Harry called in some sort of 19-pound Tom, and I shot him at about 10 yards. It was incredibly exciting. Without some sort of doubt it was my best day of squirrel wildlife trapping.
