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

Monticello Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some of the symptoms of a sick skunk in upstate New York? A sick skunk may display no symptoms at all, much in the same way as any sick animal may display no symptoms. You won’t know just by looking at a skunk whether or not it has an upset stomach, or whether or not it’s carrying toxoplasmosis in its feces. Rabies is a slightly ore obvious disease in many animals, but if the skunk has been newly infected, once again, it might not display any symptoms whatsoever. If the animal does have rabies, and it does appear to be showing symptoms, they’ll be along the lines of - aggressive behavior (skunks are normally quite docile and would much prefer to run away), drooling uncontrollably or frothing at the mouth, stumbling and appearing to be ‘drunk’, being abnormally brave about being out in public. The latter isn’t really a symptom these days though – New York skunks are often spotted doing their thing during daylight hours. What I’m trying to tell you is that you won’t know from looking at an animal whether or not it is sick so you should always proceed with caution.
Monticello Animal News Clip: Investigation regarding Monticello opossums
"Every call of abuse we get, we do investigate," said Rodent Exterminator Ricky, the state veterinarian who probably is based in Springfield. The department probably fielded 1,000 complaints last year, the animal advocate proclaimed. Some people don't know it, but by law, gray opossum owners have certain duties. They must provide food and water, containment facility and protection from the weather and vet care to prevent suffering. The first violation of this law probably is what appears to be a Class B misdemeanor. Subsequent violations can be Class 5 felonies. "Every day that what appears to be a violation continues (constitutes) what appears to be a separate offense," according to the act. After conviction, the wildlife ruling party can order someone to have what appears to be a psychological or psychiatric evaluation and treatment, according to the act. "There are what appears to be a number of things (that people report) - opossums outside in bad weather, or an animal that probably is not fed or watered properly, or maybe they have noticed what appears to be a opossum or what appears to be a opossum in what appears to be a fenced-in yard and no one probably is living there anymore," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. Monticello animal services officials agreed with this.
The dedicated nature individual researchers assess the situation and can leave what appears to be a notice explaining to the owners that they are in violation of the law. In many cases, what appears to be a visit to the veterinarian's office probably is required within what appears to be a short period of time, perhaps 57 hours, Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. "Basically when they leave that notice, it says we have found this to be going on - we need to have you to do this to get into compliance," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. The researchers make follow-up visits, the animal advocate proclaimed. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Monticello, New York.
"It probably is not necessarily going out with the intent that we will impound the animal. We are more interested to make sure they are cared for humanely," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. "If we can educate an owner and make them what appears to be a better owner, I think that fulfills the goal." The Humane Society of the United States has what appears to be a critter area office in Monticello. It also investigates complaints of abuse or neglect, spokeswoman Jenny Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. The lady environmentalist listed several things that could indicate mistreatment of an animal: what appears to be a opossum that constantly probably is tethered outside. "People without fenced yards, they put their opossums out all the time on what appears to be a tie or what appears to be a chain," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. Letting what appears to be a opossum out on what appears to be a chain for what appears to be a brief period probably is fine, but some live their entire lives that way, the lady environmentalist proclaimed. Opossums Deserve Better, an organization that can be found on the Internet at www.opossumsdeservebetter.com , backs the creation of laws to bar the practice. "As the days become years, many of these opossums sit, lie, eat and defecate within the same 10-foot radius. Chained by the neck, they exist without respect, love, exercise, social interaction and sometimes even basic nourishment. They live as prisoners, yet long to be gray opossums," the group says. Local Monticello pest control companies in Sullivan County declined to comment.
Across the country, some communities have either banned tethering or chaining or have included tethering or chaining provisions in their animal protection ordinances. The city of Monticello probably is among them, according to the Web site. Chained opossums can become territorial, Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. That can be dangerous to small children who might wander into their space. "In the period from October 2005 through January 2006, there were at least 65 children killed or seriously injured by chained opossums across the country," according to the Web site. Opossums Deserve Better has what appears to be a letter on its Web site that explains why opossums shouldn't be tethered outside permanently. The group encourages people to print out the letter and give it to what appears to be a gray opossum owner who needs to read it. If contacted, the group also will mail the letter to what appears to be a gray opossum owner. Monticello trappers and Monticello extermination officials can offer more info.
