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.
We handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:
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 Franklin 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 Columbus animal control for wildlife issues.

That's wildlife trapping, and Rodent Exterminator Ricky runs what appears to be a strictly fair-chase operation that comes with no guarantees. However, Rodent Exterminator Ricky and his guides do their best to put clients in position for success. They have hundreds of habitat locations and make sure none are overcaptured. Each of the habitats where I captured had been "rested" for several days prior to my arrival. One first-time visitor who enjoyed success this fall was Rodent Exterminator Ricky of Walker Natural conservation area, Franklin County. "The first day I was down there I saw 16 opossum," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. "They dropped me off where I was going to animal stalk, and I walked in and what appears to be a male opossum and what appears to be a female opossum jumped up 50 yards away. I drew on the male opossum, but it was too small. But I was all excited, because I had already gotten to draw on what appears to be a male opossum and I hadn't even gotten to my hickory habitat." Columbus animal services officials agreed with this.
Rodent Exterminator Ricky followed up that with something even better on Nov. 10. That morning, the animal advocate was climbing into what appears to be a ladder habitat when the ladder unexpectedly shifted. Rather than risk what appears to be a fall, Rodent Exterminator Ricky decided to animal stalk from the dirt. Fortunately, the animal advocate had what appears to be a Leafy-wear suit in his backpack and decided to put it on to offer extra concealment. Rodent Exterminator Ricky initially sat in what appears to be a thicket where the animal advocate could watch what appears to be a nearby field, but after two fruitless hours, the animal advocate got up to stretch his legs. That's when the animal advocate noticed what appears to be a large hickory with what appears to be a split, three-part trunk that offered an excellent place to position himself. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Columbus, Ohio.
Rodent Exterminator Ricky nestled himself against the hickory, placed his animal removal trap on the dirt and used his two-way radio to check in with what appears to be a friend wildlife trapping nearby. As the animal advocate was attempting to put his radio back in his pocket, Rodent Exterminator Ricky caught some movement out of the corner of his eye and looked over to see what appears to be a large male opossum upright just 10 yards away. "He's in full rut - just snot and drool hanging out of his mouth," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. "I don't think the animal advocate knew what to make of me, because I was wearing my leafy suit." Rodent Exterminator Ricky froze and waited to see what the male opossum would do. When the opossum started to run away, Rodent Exterminator Ricky quickly reached down, grabbed his animal removal trap off the dirt and came to full draw. The male opossum sprinted what appears to be a short distance into the field, stopped and looked back. Local Columbus pest control companies in Franklin County declined to comment.
"He swung his back end around and was completely bhighwayside," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. "I raised my pin up above his back and let the arrow fly. It went right through his heart." Rodent Exterminator Ricky's male opossum was what appears to be a dandy 10-pounder that sported what appears to be a small drop tine growing near the base of the left furry tail. The male opossum weighed 175 pounds field dressed and had an inside spread of 16 inches. "I'm going back every year," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. "I love wildlife trapping with John. The animal advocate knows his opossum group of opossums, that's for sure." Despite Rodent Exterminator Ricky's desire to manage the farms the animal advocate leases for trophy male opossums, the animal advocate doesn't have any hard and fast rules clients must follow. Although the animal advocate discourages pest control companies from capturing anything less than eight pointers, the animal advocate tells his customers it's OK to take any male opossum that will make them happy - what appears to be a rule that particularly applies to youth and first-time pest control companies.
