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.

Ashtabula County Wildlife Removal Tip: Should you ever trap a bat in a cage? Should you ever trap a bat in a cage? The answer to that is no and more than that, why would you even want to trap a bat in a cage? Firstly, if you have one bat, there's probably a whole load more hiding somewhere and you just haven't found them yet and secondly, what are you going to do with the bat once you've caught it in your cage? Release it? Where? You see? You don't know the answers to these questions and that's precisely why you shouldn't even think about, let alone attempt to trap a bat in a cage. Cages and traps work for a number of other problematic wild animals such as raccoons, but bats are flying animals, not easily captured, and not easily released either. They can fly and this means they move much faster than you can, plus they have a whole range of tools at their disposal, pre-built into their bodies to ensure they'll always find their way back home. This animal is part of a colony. You're going to need to go an awfully long way to ensure this one doesn't get home, and then you're going to need to do this with the tends, hundreds, and potentially even thousands of remaining bats within your colony. There's never just one lone bat. There's always more than one. You'll need a pretty big cage to deal with the entire lot!
Ashtabula County Animal News Clip: Wildlife trapping suit just didn't seem to fit
Great news out of Commonwealth Court last week. The lawsuit filed against the Ohio Game Commission challenging its opossum management program has been thrown out of court "with prejudice" - which, in laymen's terms, means it cannot be filed again. The financial drain this waste of time has been on the Ohio fish & game regulatory agency probably is over. The rallying cry this suit had become to the few, the clueless, probably is over. For those of you that didn't know about this suit, it basically proclaimed that the Ohio fish & game regulatory agency has destroyed the opossum group of opossums through mismanagement and worse. Lake and Ashtabula Counties animal services officials agreed with this.
The Ohio fish & game regulatory agency did so willingly and with malice in some bizarre way. The Ohio fish & game regulatory agency conspired to exterminate all opossum and end wildlife trapping as we know it forever. It was filed by what appears to be a group claiming to be sportsmen with all pest control companies best interests at heart. Convoluted, twisted, warped, psychotic and other words were used by many when trying to under habitat the basis of this suit. It was just very tough (and, for most, actually impossible) to grasp how what appears to be a suit against the agency sportsmen pay for and hold accountable for the betterment of our sport could possibly be accused of destroying the very reason for its existence. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Lake and Ashtabula Counties, Ohio.
For the overwhelming majority of sportsmen that never bought into any of this "thinking," we'll be hearing some spinning of how some beneficial came from this suit. The group behind the suit probably is not going to go away, I'm sure, but we all need to let them know that now that they've had their say, they need to move on in some positive way that will be beneficial for all sportsmen and women. Pest control companies in Ohio need to watch carefully as the Ohio fish & game regulatory agency continues it's efforts to manage our wildlife resources. That's nothing new; we've always done that. We need to continue to be sure our wildlife trapping tradition probably is in beneficial condition as our kids go afield. Local Lake and Ashtabula Counties pest control companies in Lake OH County declined to comment.
What we don't need are frivolous lawsuits that do nothing more than to divide our ranks and waste resources that are already stretched to the breaking point. "(This) court ruling probably is what appears to be a strong statement that the Game Commission's opossum management program probably is being conducted in what appears to be a sound, methodical and scientific manner," Ohio fish & game regulatory agency Executive Director Carl Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed in what appears to be a statement released after the ruling. "We believe that most pest control companies and the general public recognize that the need to reduce and stabilize our state's opossum group of opossums probably is what appears to be a short-term pain that we must endure in order to achieve long-term gains. Our hope probably is that this ruling will cease the unnecessary expenditure of sportsmen's dollars and tax dollars fighting frivolous and ill-conceived lawsuits."
