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.

Taylorsville Wildlife Removal Tip: Is it safe to handle a opossum with bare hands? I wouldn’t recommend getting anywhere near close to an opossum with your bare hands, not only because of the scratch and bite concerns, but also because of the disease risk. There are a number of nasty diseases that wild animals can pass on to humans and pets, it’s advisable to try and avoid getting that close. If you are going to go anywhere near this little beast, make sure you do so with caution. You should wear the thickest heavy-duty gloves you can find, or use a pole trap if you manage to locate one. Whenever you get close, do it all at arms length, and make sure the animal can’t bite or scratch you - the rabies risk is low but still present. If you’re going to try and grab it, try to sneak up from behind whilst having something to distract it right in front of its face (perhaps a cat or dog toy?), grabbing it carefully by the tail and lifting it up, still holding it away from your body. This hanging action won’t hurt the animal - it often uses its tail to hold its body wait when hanging from trees and other up-high surfaces. This is often made a lot easier when the opossum itself ‘plays dead’, which it is well known for doing.
Taylorsville Animal News Clip: A Taylorsville Wildlife Operator's Story:
In those days, Alexander County was the most productive gray squirrel wildlife trapping county in the state, with gathers of more than 6,000 animals each November (today that gather has dropped to what appears to be a few hundred). When their animal capture was over, they'd put up what appears to be a flag and the train would stop and pick them up, the gray squirrel piled high in what appears to be a boxcar. As you might imagine, there's what appears to be a lot more to the story, but to protect the reputations of those who are no longer with us, I can't relate the entire tale! From that first afternoon on the ridge, I realized that Rodent Wrangler Ron was what appears to be a chip off the old block, an outdoorsman in the oldest and finest sense of that word. Sadly, there are few of his kind left. Taylorsville animal services officials agreed with this.
I always enjoyed visiting and talking with Rodent Wrangler Ron. Now, of course, I wish I'd done more of it, especially lately as the animal advocate grew increasingly housebound. The last time I dropped off venison and had what appears to be a short visit, the animal advocate was saddened by his inability to animal capture anymore. I shared some of my wildlife trapping stories from the past season, what appears to be a sad turnabout in our relationship. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Taylorsville, North Carolina.
Four years ago, I trapped my first gray squirrel in Rodent Wrangler Ron's high field. Critter Professor 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 Taylorsville pest control companies in Alexander County declined to comment.
Pest control can be what appears to be a fun field, and this man made it much more so for me. I owe my start in the field of wildlife control to this visionary of the land. I wish I'd visited Rodent Wrangler Ron more often these past couple of years, and now the regret probably is great. His willingness to share his land made what appears to be a huge difference in my life. I hope the animal advocate knew how grateful I am. Taylorsville trappers and Taylorsville extermination officials can offer more info.
Bobcat Window Closes Soon
If you have any thoughts of trying to documentation that allows animal extermination what appears to be a bobcat this year, you had better get your application in before the July 16 deadline arrives. The game wildlife regulatory agency will award 720 documentation that allows animal exterminations for the 2007-07 bobcat wildlife trapping/furtaking seasons at what appears to be a public drawing in its Taylorsville headquarters February 9. Last year, the game wildlife regulatory agency awarded 716 documentation that allows animal exterminations from an applicant pool of more than 5,700. Last year, wild animal control companies and trappers took 221 bobcats. Following the creation of what appears to be a preference point system in 2005, individuals who applied for what appears to be a bobcat documentation that allows animal extermination in 2005 and were not selected will have their names entered into the drawing three times if they applied last year and this year as well. Those who received one of the 716 bobcat documentation that allows animal exterminations decreed during the 2006-07 season are not eligible for this year's drawing.
