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

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Ontario county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Geneva animal control for wildlife issues.

Geneva Wildlife Removal Tip: Trapping a Groundhog

Once the trap has been selected, luring the groundhog has to be done with the help of carefully selected and positioned bait. Groundhogs like cantaloupes. Anything that the groundhogs would like to eat regularly from your vegetable garden can work as bait. The positioning of the bait in the trap is important. The bait has to be placed in such a way that will lure the groundhogs to enter the trap fully. It is best to familiarize the groundhog with the trap by tying the door open and leaving some bait within it for a few days before you actually set it.

Groundhogs like greenish plants and fruits that taste extra sweet. Some of the best baits would be corn, fresh string beans, strawberries, peas and lettuce. The bait has to be positioned properly in the trap in order for it to get you a successful catch. The groundhog has to be lured fully into the trap that you have set up. It has to step on the trigger plate for it to work. If it is a single door trap, the bait can be positioned at the end, just behind the trigger plate. You will have to prevent the groundhog from taking the bait from outside of your trap. So, you have to keep the bait away from the walls of the trap. When it is a double door trap, the bait can then be positioned in the center of the trap so that interaction is encouraged with the trigger plate. The bait can even be placed directly on the trigger plate or you can bury the bait underneath the plate in the trap or hang it from the top section of the trap.

Experts in groundhog trapping feel that cantaloupes are the best kind of bait. They can be cut into cubes that are a couple of inches thick. The cantaloupe juice and its rind could also be rubbed throughout the inner and outer parts of the trap. For good results, a bait trail can be created with cantaloupes that lead to the trap. Some bait can be placed at the entrance of the burrows. The scent should not be transferred to the trap; so, it is better to wear gloves when handling bait. Groundhogs are wary of the human scent and may avoid the traps if they carry your scent.

Once they are trapped inside a cage, groundhogs become anxious. You have to check the trap on a regular basis to prevent the groundhog from attempting to escape or injuring itself. You have to hold the trap away from your body and cover it possibly with a tarp or a cloth to keep the groundhog in a calm state. The groundhog can be later relocated to a place that is some miles away from your house. Once traps are used to remove groundhogs, you can keep them away by using effective groundhog repellents that are available in the market along with few natural therapies.

Geneva Animal News Clip: Raccoon Repellent

If you want to go with hot and sour tasting then the solution is peppers and onions. Get two cayenne peppers and two jalapeno peppers. Cut them up and boil them in two quarts of water for 20 minutes. While they are cooking add two chopped onions to the mixture. Once it is cooked spray the mixture on your trash cans or garden. This will have much the same effect as the previous mixture, except it adds one additional part to the mixture. Not only will the peppers leave the raccoons mouth burning, but the onion will give the raccoon a very bad taste. Onions are not the BO of the mouth for nothing, even to raccoons.

As with the previous concoction you will need to make sure you wash your vegetables thoroughly before you eat them. That is unless you want a burning mouth that tastes like arm pit.

While these remedies have proven success in irritating raccoons and keeping them away, a little preventative care on your part is still important. If you have garbage cans that are outside it is not enough to simply spray them down. You need to make sure that you make your garbage cans as inaccessible as possible. If you can keep them behind a door, like a shed or a garage then do so. If you can seal the can closed then you need to do so as well. If it is not easy to get into the garbage can then this can also become a deterrent to the raccoon.

If you have a pet try not to leave the food and water dishes outside. The raccoon will enjoy eating and drinking from your dog's bowl just as much as Fido or Spot will. You obviously cannot spray either of these mixtures on your pet's food, so do yourself a favor and keep the dishes inside, or feed your pet right away and then remove the bowls directly after they have eaten.

If you have a garden, see if you can put a higher more secure fence around the area. The less accessible your plants are to the raccoons the more likely they are to move on.

Keep in mind that you can spray these mixtures all you want, but if you are leaving other opportunities for the raccoons to find food they will keep returning. Be smart.
