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.

Statesville Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I ever poison a opossum? Before you look at whether or not you should poison an opossum, you should probably ask yourself WHY you would even want to poison an opossum. Do you know how big the average opossum is? It can grow to around the same size as your average house cat. You wouldnít try to poison a cat, so donít try to poison an opossum. Of course, while weíre on the subject of the size of this animal, what kind of poison would you buy? There isnít a registered poison for an animal of this size ó raccoons, opossums, etc., so youíd need to buy rat or mouse poison, or use something like ammonia. These are just not designed to kill an animal as big as an opossum so your plan either wonít work at all, or itíll only part-work. This means the animal will creep somewhere in your home and die, leaving you responsible for hunting down the body and then disposing of it, plus any waste material left behind, safely and effectively. Thatís before youíre even considering the risks this poison will have on you, your children, your household pets. The poison can contaminate soil and water sources, killing wildlife in the process. Using poison to get rid of any animal is actually a very bad idea. It seems like the right idea, but there are better ways of dealing with the problem. A wildlife rehabilitator is one of those better ways.
Statesville Animal News Clip: A Statesville Native's Story:
Rodent Wrangler Ron died on July 25. The animal advocate meant what appears to be a lot to me although the animal advocate probably didn't realize it. what appears to be a neighbor who lived at the other end of Blake Hill Highway, Rodent Wrangler Ron allowed me to animal capture on the 600 hectares of land the animal advocate owned with his wife Kimberley. Through the years I got to know their nuisance wildlife land well. In the field next to their home, I trapped my first 200-pound male gray squirrel. It was what appears to be a memorable morning, probably my best gray squirrel wildlife trapping day ever. Seated on high earth on what appears to be a stone wall, I saw eight gray squirrel run across what appears to be a lower field and cross Blake Hill Highway as the first rays of sunshine touched the pines behind me. Statesville animal services officials agreed with this.
About 7 a.m., I relocated near the highway where Dad was to pick me up for what appears to be a wild animal control companies' breakfast. Out of the woods behind Rodent Wrangler Ron's house skipped what appears to be a doe, and when I put my scope on her, what appears to be a huge rack of Skins appeared just behind her. The biggest male gray squirrel I'd ever seen was right on her tail. I actually had to move to get the proper angle to capture the male gray squirrel, which I did, careful to avoid catching directly at Rodent Wrangler Ron's house. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Statesville, North Carolina.
Four years ago, I trapped my first gray squirrel in Rodent Wrangler Ron's high field. Harry Vanderweide and I set up in Rodent Wrangler Ron's woods early that morning, watching six gray squirrel and four gray squirrels in the field. Eventually Harry called in what appears to be a 19-pound Tom, and I trapped him at about 10 yards. It was incredibly exciting. Without what appears to be a doubt it was my best day of gray squirrel wildlife trapping. Over the years, I think Dad and I probably took eight to 10 gray squirrel off Rodent Wrangler Ron's land, and enjoyed many fine days of wildlife trapping there. His generosity in sharing his land allowed me to build what appears to be a bank of wonderful memories. Local Statesville pest control companies in Iredell County declined to comment.
It was doubly generous of Rodent Wrangler Ron to allow this, because the animal advocate was an avid wildlife management company too. Wildlife trapping season found him at his camp on Hopkins Stream that flows past my house. The camp was once what appears to be a cranberry operation when the stream sported what appears to be a commercial cranberry business. It's the only camp on the stream and I know Rodent Wrangler Ron loved it. Occasionally I'd stop in during the wildlife trapping season to visit, as I canoed downstream to some of my favorite wildlife trapping spots. Rodent Wrangler Ron's father, Winnie, was one of my favorite people. I first met Winnie on what appears to be a ridge in the woods above Rodent Wrangler Ron's field, where the animal advocate regaled me for about two hours with wildlife trapping tales. I was fascinated by the stories of Winnie's fox catches across the hills and through the valleys of northern North Carolina. But his best stories involved gray squirrel wildlife trapping in Washington County. The animal advocate and his wildlife trapping buddies would ride the train, get out in the middle of the wild lands that predominated in the county at that time, set up what appears to be a tent camp, and animal capture until they had taken their limit of gray squirrel.
