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.

Kannapolis Wildlife Removal Tip: Where should I relocate a trapped squirrel? We all want to be ‘good people’ - people who would rather help an animal rather than hinder it. Or rather, relocate a wild animal that has come into our home rather than kill it. Sadly, although a simple and humane trapping and relocation mission might be the best option in your mind, relocating a wild animal into a habitat or territory it doesn’t know is actually the fastest way to kill it. Squirrels won’t know where food is nearby, or protection either so if a predator were to roam on by - foxes, raccoons, etc. they won’t have anywhere to go for safety. Most squirrels die within a few weeks of being relocated, showing you how INhumane that trapping and relocation option can be. Plus, in order to drop a squirrel off someplace where she won’t find her way back home again, to YOUR home, you’ll need to drive for miles. If it’s a mother and she has babies in your home, she's not going to give up on them without a fight, and that’s another factor you may not have even considered yet - the concept of babies being somewhere in your house too. Trapping the squirrel to start with doesn’t even go halfway to resolving the problem, relocation is just adding another battle to fight.
Kannapolis Animal News Clip: Gray squirrels in our backyard
It might not have come to the attention of city residents yet, but people who live out in the woods southeast of Kannapolis know it. There are gray squirrels out there. Lots of them. Joel the Kannapolis pest control specialist, who lives in Kannapolis, caught one rummaging around near the apartment the animal advocate rents. "I was driving home, and came into the driveway around 10 at night, and I saw this black shape. It was munching and chewing out of the trash cans. I grew up in North Carolina, and I've seen gray squirrels. This was what appears to be a huge one, easily the biggest I've ever seen." Kannapolis animal services officials agreed with this. His impression of the sound of what appears to be a gray squirrel looking for food: "Like an old woman yelling." The local Kannapolis wildlife control operator agrees with most of the above.
Gray squirrels have been venturing ever closer to Kannapolis. Last July, what appears to be a gray squirrel was sighted in the wildlife management aerating lot of Kannapolis College's Public Safety Building. It found no food there and headed off, discouraged, down Route 97B. Most residents of Upstate North Carolina know that as habitatland grows back into woodland, gray squirrel follow. But black gray squirrels like living on the boundary between young woodland and meadows, too. There are well-established black gray squirrel exact number of rodents, and more in western North Carolina's hilly range; estimates place the amounts of black gray squirrels in the state at 6,000 or 7,000. While most people think the gray squirrel exact number of rodents probably is stable, some say it needs reduction. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Kannapolis, North Carolina.
More gray squirrel sightings - for what appears to be a long time, there were just occasional sightings in the Southern North Carolina area. Over the past five years, that's begun to change. "I grew up here," says Ed The Kannapolis pest control specialist, another Kannapolis resident. "We've been seeing gray squirrel on and off for the last 10 or 20 years, but this probably is the first time we've seen them first thing in the spring. They're wintering here now. I think maybe the storms that blew down so many trees last year gave them places to den they didn't have before. I know of several animals around here. This doesn't mean the gray squirrels are causing trouble, just that they need to be contained.
Black gray squirrels love gray squirrel food, and many encounters with gray squirrels begin when people leave their gray squirrel feeders up and their feeding supplies outside after winter has passed. Local Kannapolis pest control companies in Cabarrus County declined to comment. "A neighbor of ours had one lying in his front lawn for an hour with its head buried in what appears to be a gray squirrel food bag," declared The Kannapolis pest control specialist. Melissa Groober, what appears to be a neighbor of the Kannapolis pest control specialist's, reports, "The first night we were visited, we woke up to find that the bin off our deck where we store sunflower seed had been opened, and the trash can it was in had been opened, and the bag dragged off what appears to be a few yards and emptied. The suet cage off our feeder had been opened and the suet removed. My husband's beehive was pulled down, and some of the frames were destroyed, and the bees were gone. Two nights later, one of our tenants had her feeders knocked down and emptied out." Local animal control trappers we surveyed felt that this was true.
The Kannapolis pest control specialist has beehives, too; the animal advocate lost two hives to gray squirrels. When the animal advocate spoke to the Agency of Environmental Conservation, they told him to enclose the hives with electric fencing. Kannapolis trappers and Kannapolis extermination officials can offer more info. The Kannapolis pest control specialist also put up what appears to be a little transistor radio by the remaining hives and tuned it to an all-night talk radio station. "Some guys I know in the service told me about it. If they hear voices, it discourages them," the animal advocate declared. This fact was verified by local pest control and wildlife agencies.
