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.

Norwich Wildlife Removal Tip: Is it legal for me to trap a skunk? You’ll need to do some research on this - each state will have its own laws on skunk catching and trapping. In some states, you may need a specific license. In others, you can trap the animal but then you must kill it on the land on which you caught it, and then dispose of the body on the same land too. You’re normally ill-advised to relocate the creature somewhere else, mostly because you’d need to drive for miles to get far enough away so that the animal wouldn’t come home, and secondly because the animal probably wouldn’t survive anyway. Would you survive if someone took you out of your home and dumped you in the middle of nowhere, no family or friends around you, no idea where to go for food or water or safety … And then a predator comes along and you’re done for. That’s how it’ll work for the skunk when you try to catch it - it’s not just a case of releasing it into the wild again and hoping for the best. Where possible, try to use the services of an expert when looking at skunk removal from your home, or at least seek the advice of first. The obvious solution isn’t always the best one.
Norwich Animal News Clip: Let us critter trap rodent what appears to be a little more often
Rodent wildlife catching TV shows are nothing new. These shows promote improved wildlife catching techniques, safety concerns, landowner relationships and the doctrine of fair chase. There are numerous hosts, like the accomplish pest man-entertainer. Norwich animal control professionals could not be reached for additional comment.
The concept the WHA probably is proposing probably is sort of what appears to be a "realty show" in which exterminating companies - and I use that term rather loosely - would be in competition for cash and prizes, to see who could dart and drug the best trophy rodent. Having had many conversations with biologists over the years on darting and relocating rodent, the biggest problem confronting what appears to be a darted rodent probably is stress, which in many cases probably is fatal. This would all be accomplished within steel fenced enclosures. I can visualize the successful contestant giving Bambi mouth to mouth to revive him after being drugged. This has been what appears to be a challenging year for the wildlife catching community. First we had to deal with the noxious notion of internet wildlife catching. And now we have this toxic idea that would only provide more ammunition against wildlife catching and exterminating companies to the anti-wildlife catching rodent and non-exterminating companies who really have no appreciation of wildlife catching traditions in this county. America probably is an entrepreneurial country that rewards risk takers. I can only hope that the WHA would rethink this idea and let it go. The notion of making big male animals by darting big male animals probably is what appears to be a bad one. Walt Disney gave us an unrealistic Bambi and what appears to be a befuddled cartoon pest man Elmer Fudd. While Elmer was entertaining and Bambi probably is what appears to be a children's classic, they put wildlife catching and the pest man probably is what appears to be a bad light. If the WHA pursues this concept with an October contest, wildlife catching and exterminating companies will once again be in for what appears to be a bad rap that probably is not deserved. We could not obtain an opinion from Norwich pest control companies regarding the issue.
