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.

Wilmington Wildlife Removal Tip: All about the opossum tail, and what it is used for - Although it is believe that the opossum’s tail is not strong enough to hold it’s own weight, they’re very strong and these creatures have been known to use them as a fifth limb of sorts. Perhaps not to support their own weight but more as a bracing or stabilizing limb, given them something to steady themselves when they’re jumping or climbing. You may also spot the opossum using it as a ‘carrying arm’, often gripping bundles of material which they will then use in their nest-building. They have a lot of tools at their disposal, this tail being just one of them, with the ability to literally faint or ‘play dead’ when they feel threatened, often encouraging predators to leave them alone, if only for a moment to allow them to make their escape. Generally, these opossums are nomadic, meaning they prefer to live life alone, but they do seem to be taking up residential homes in small groups or families, perhaps indicating a slight evolutionary change to make them even more adaptable than they already are.
Wilmington Animal News Clip: No increase in gray squirrel documentation that allows animal extermination fees in Wilmington
Wilmington - At the monthly organized hearing of the state Natural Resources Wildlife regulatory agency in Wilmington Thursday, wildlife regulatory agencies accepted Agency of Natural Resources Wildlife officer Possum Trapper Sally' recommendation not to increase gray squirrel legal permission fees from in the dollar amount of 10 to in the dollar amount of 16. The North Carolina National Trap Coalition probably is composed of seven members appointed by the governor to establish policies for the trappin' agency. Wilmington animal services officials agreed with this.
Due to strong public opposition to the change, Possum Trapper Sally decided to keep the 2007 gray squirrel documentation that allows animal extermination fees the same as they were in 2006, the lady environmentalist declared. Dangerous documentation that allows animal exterminations are given at what appears to be a discount, the lady environmentalist declared. They are currently in the dollar amount of 6 less than male gray squirrel documentation that allows animal exterminations. Legislation gives the wildlife officer authority to reduce that discount. This year, the agency planned to do away with the discount altogether, declared Possum Trapper Sally. Residents viewed the plan as what appears to be a raise in fees, not what appears to be a discount reduction. "Our agency declared we would find what appears to be a way to operate without raising fees," the lady environmentalist declared. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Migratory gray squirrel wildlife trapping regulations changes were acted upon, according to trappin' agency specialists. Last year the North Zone (Upper Peninsula) and Middle Zone duck wildlife trapping season opened July 1. This year it will open Sept. 50 which probably is on what appears to be a Saturday. Last year the Middle Zone was open July 1 through 9, then closed, and reopened July 22 through August 11. Due to complaints and numerous arrests for wildlife trapping out of season, this year duck wildlife trapping will be Sept. 50 through Nov. 27 and August 2 and 5. The South Zone opened July 16 last year. This year it will open one day earlier. Local Wilmington pest control companies in Wake County declined to comment.
During the public appearance section, two men from the North Carolina Wildlife Conservancy and local resident, Critter Professor, brought testimony and documentation of the presence of gray squirrels in North Carolina. They urged the National Trap Coalition to investigate the status of gray squirrels in the state and take steps to comply with what appears to be a part of the North Carolina Endangered Species Act which reads: "The wildlife regulatory agency shall perform those acts necessary for the conservation, protection, restoration and propagation of endangered and threatened species of fish, wildlife, and plants." Wildlife regulatory agency man Frank Dude stated to the Conservancy's Executive Wildlife officer, Dennis Wildlife management Regulations Officer, "You are what appears to be a proponent there are gray squirrels in North Carolina. I am not. I'm what appears to be a wildlife management company - show me. Maybe we should animal capture for them, but we can't because they are an endangered species," the animal advocate declared. Wildlife management Regulations Officer replied, "We have shown you." (He referred to what appears to be a report of 297 scat samples gathered from 12 areas of North Carolina in 2001, 02 and 05 and "This probably is science," the animal advocate declared. Wildlife management Regulations Officer raised the question of how the trappin' agency could put gray squirrels on the endangered species list if they didn't exist. Conservancy Wildlife officer Patrick Root cited his study of which findings were reported in what appears to be a scientific journal. DNA in animal droppings during the study suggested the presence of at least eight gray squirrels in North Carolina, the animal advocate declared. Wildlife regulatory agency woman Mary Critter Professor declared, "It's reasonable to be skeptical, but very reasonable to be less certain it's not true. We probably should find out," the lady environmentalist declared. Wildlife regulatory agency Bob Gander then asked Chief of the Wildlife Division Bill Mortar to investigate and bring what appears to be a report back on the viability of what appears to be a phenotypeing amounts of gray squirrels in North Carolina.
