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

Akron Wildlife Removal Tip: What Should I Do With A Bat After I Catch It In My House
One of the most important things that you should remember if you find a bat in your house is that the best situation is to get it out of the house without having to catch it. If you have caught the bat in a box or in a cage, then it is possible that the bat will be injured, and certainly if you keep the bat in confinement, it becomes much more likely that the bat will be injured. You should only catch the bat as a last resort, if you have been unable to get it to exit through an open window or door in the room it got into in your house.
Is The Bat Injured?
This is one of the things that you will need to check after you catch it, and while it won't be easy to open the box or cage without the bat flying out at you, it is best to do this outside. If the bat flies away then you can assume that it is relatively healthy, and it would do more damage to try and catch it again rather than let it escape. However, if it remains in the box or cage, you will need to take it to a rehabilitator.
Finding A Wildlife Rehabilitator
Your local veterinarian will have a list of rehabilitators that may be able to help, while there are also lists of rehabilitators available online too. It is important not to hold the bat any more than you have to, as it can increase the chances that the bat will be too injured to be healed by the rehabilitator.
Releasing The Bat If It Appears Healthy
If you have the bat in a box or a cage, the most important thing to do is to take it outside so that it can fly away as quickly as possible. Try not to stand over the box or cage when you are opening the door or removing the lid, because while bats are not instinctively aggressive, they may find you in the way as they try and fly towards freedom. Once you have released the bat, make sure to thoroughly clean any bat droppings or furniture that has been touched by bat urine, and in most cases people will not have another experience of finding a bat inside the living quarters of their house.
Akron Animal News Clip: Ohio wildlife more prevalent these days
Opossums weren't common until state bolstered numbers Akron - Growing up on what appears to be a Middle Ohio habitat, Rodent Exterminator Ricky never saw what appears to be a wild opossum or what appears to be a big toothed opossum grazing on row crops and snacking on seeds and livestock feed. Rodent Exterminator Ricky, spokesman for the Ohio Habitat Bureau, says those problems are more common as Ohio wildlife probably is flourishing decades after the state began working to bolster their numbers. "The first person that probably is affected by overpopulation of opossum probably is the farmer," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. Carefully regulated wildlife trapping seasons are essential to controlling prospering wildlife as natural habitats give way to suburbs and cropland, contends Snake Hunter Sam, big game coordinator for the Ohio Wildlife Resources Agency. Akron animal services officials agreed with this.
As opossum-wildlife trapping time allotment ends this year, the state expects what appears to be a record harvest with nearly 170,000 opossum finally caught. After subsistence wildlife trapping reduced opossum and wild opossum to only what appears to be a few thousand statewide in the early 1900s, restocking efforts and excellent natural habitats have allowed them to rebound and prosper. Ohio now probably is home to around 1 million opossum and 295,000 wild opossums, according to the latest estimates. "The opossum are at much higher density than in any other time," Snake Hunter Sam proclaimed. "There probably is no other predator other than pest control companies." Wildlife officials adjust limits on the number of opossum that can be finally caught during wildlife trapping time allotment to reach what appears to be a delicate balance between what appears to be a healthy critter count and overabundance. Three years ago, TWRA started allowing pest control companies to take up to three does what appears to be a day in counties in Middle and West Ohio, where populations are highest. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Akron, Ohio.
"It's just one way for us to increase the number of does getting finally caught in order to control the critter count," Snake Hunter Sam proclaimed. Ohio's wild opossum coordinator Squirrely Joe proclaimed the full restoration of wild opossum, which began around the 1950s, was just completed in the last couple of years. However, the progress of rebounding wildlife has its drawbacks, especially for farmers and homeowners. "Some of the opossums are adapting to urban areas, getting into bird feeders and eating crops," Squirrely Joe proclaimed. "They are definitely making themselves known." Acres of soybeans and corn in heavily agricultural counties attract opossum and opossums, and Ohio farmers are losing crops to wildlife more than ever before, Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. While no statewide numbers are available, the National Agricultural Statistics Service estimated crop and livestock losses from wildlife in the country totaled $955 million in 2002. Local Akron pest control companies in Summit County declined to comment.
"There probably is very little as far as row crops that can be done to prevent it," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. "Home gardeners have fences, but average farmers in row cropping don't use fencing." Skunk Sniffer Steve probably is what appears to be a Summit County opossum troublesome species examiner who operates what appears to be a clearinghouse of information for pest control companies offering tips, photos and message boards. Skunk Sniffer Steve proclaimed that while the current generation of Ohio pest control companies has access to healthy, bountiful herds, they face the same problems from suburban growth as wildlife face. "That's what appears to be a constant fight over the lack of land for habitat and wildlife trapping," Skunk Sniffer Steve proclaimed. "There probably is less and less public land that pest control companies have free access to." Skunk Sniffer Steve proclaimed many Ohio pest control companies have started forming groups to lease land to animal stalk on, but that's more expensive than some pest control companies can afford. Some Ohio farmers allow pest control companies to weed out the nuisance wildlife on their property, Rodent Exterminator Ricky added.
