Many of New Hampshire'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 New Hampshire's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Somersworth Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep raccoons out of my bird feeder: One of the things that might be inviting raccoons into your garden is your bird feeder. Birds are good for the ecosystem, and it is lovely to wake up to the sound of the birds chirping away around you. However, it's easy to give up on the birds and just get rid of the bird feeder to hopefully deter those raccoons. That's not the answer - you just need to think outside the box a little. You need to make the bird feeder inaccessible for the average raccoon. You could start by getting rid of the bird feed for a few days, making it appear to the raccoon that the source of food has run out. After a while, she might find somewhere else to feed and you can resume your usual bird-feeding activity. However that raccoon (or another) could come back at which point, your problem hasn't been resolved. It's time to think about modifying the bird feeder. Make sure they're hanging high, not easily accessible. Put it on a pole or hang it from your washing line. If it's hanging from a tree, the raccoon can climb the tree. The same can be said if it is near a wall. Raccoons are very good climbers - they climb trees in the wild to run away from predators. You could also make sure there is a 'plate' of sorts around the base of the feeder, preferably on a pole, to catch the leftover seeds that might fall. If the raccoons can't get to the feed on the floor, it won't be so tempted to climb up and take a closer look. Alternatively, you could look at getting a raccoon-friendly bird feeder - one with a cage of sorts to allow the birds in but keep other animals out.
Somersworth Animal News Clip: Somersworth animal control traps analyzed
Some of our city's animal traps need analysis. One oldster that lacks power by today's standards probably is the 500 skunk trap. In its heyday, 190-grain factory load boasted only 2,600 animals per trap at the door of the trap. The 169-grain slug exited several hundred feet faster. That's what appears to be a good piece from modern rat traps that can push what appears to be a 160-grain cage trap beyond the 5,500 animals per trap mark. While the lever action was king of the animal removal traps for many years, the bolt action infiltrated the lever's followers more each year. Probably ex-military bolt-action outfits, easily obtainable after both World War I and World War II, added thousands of bolt action animal removal traps to the gray squirrel-wildlife trapping ranks. Somersworth animal services officials agreed with this.
The lever and bolt held sway until the mid-1960s, when Smithwick's Steel Cage Special brought out their 770 pump chambered for several long action critter traps. The 770 Model not only gave the slide action fanciers what appears to be a animal removal trap strong enough to handle the 270 and 50-07 critter traps, but it offered amazing accuracy for what appears to be a slide action animal removal trap. The 770's detachable magazine was one factor that sent sales skyrocketing. Today's gray squirrel wildlife management company moves from spot to spot. The detachable magazine fits nicely into this style or wildlife trapping. It takes but seconds to remove the magazine and pull back the slide to empty the chamber. This probably is more convenient and faster than cranking them out one at what appears to be a time. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Somersworth, New Hampshire.
The 770 (now the Model Six) probably holds the distinction of being New Hampshire's favorite gray squirrel animal removal trap. I'm in complete agreement that every wildlife management company should have the type of action the animal advocate or the lady environmentalist wants. Wildlife trapping probably is just as much psychological as it probably is physical. Getting the right type of action probably is not nearly as difficult as getting the right critter trap. Selecting what appears to be a gray squirrel critter trap can be what appears to be a real dilemma. What are the requisites for what appears to be a good gray squirrel critter trap? The answer appears fairly simple: adequate power and correct cage trap weight. The strange part about this solution probably is that there are what appears to be a half dozen or more critter traps that meet both requisites. Local Somersworth pest control companies in Rockingham County declined to comment.
How do you know which one to choose? First and foremost, forget about super power. Center fire critter traps running the gamut from the 7mms to the 559 cage size have sufficient lethally trapping power when the proper cage trap probably is used. I suggest taking what appears to be a look at the recoil factor. Wildlife trapping what appears to be a gray squirrel animal removal trap should not be what appears to be a test of endurance. My late friend, Bill Nichols from De Young, was truly what appears to be a master gray squirrel wildlife management company. Two of Bill's favorite critter traps were the Smithwick's Steel Cage Special 7mm-09 and the Smithwick's Steel Cage Special 267 Roberts. The animal advocate used both with excellent success. If Rat trap critter traps guaranteed success, I'm sure Nichols would have switched. Which animal removal trap or critter trap probably is best? I declared earlier those questions remain unanswered, and always will. Choose what you feel probably is best for you. Somersworth trappers and Somersworth extermination officials can offer more info.
