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 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 Fairfield 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 Lancaster animal control for wildlife issues.

Lancaster Wildlife Removal Tip: Is it legal for me to trap a house mouse?

While several wildlife (whether considered a nuisance animal or not) are covered under some sort of law that protects them or their young, mice are not. You may trap, kill, poison, destroy, and run off as many mice and their offspring as your conscience (and budget) will allow. Having said that, in the world of traps there is a wide variety of both lethal and non-lethal types to choose from.

Here a just a few of the choices we have In the DIY category: the bucket trap which involves a 5-gallon bucket and a spinning handle (usually made with a plastic bottle and a coat hanger) The mouse climbs out on the handle to retrieve a bit of bait, and falls in when the handle spins. This trap can be lethal (if the bucket is filled with water) or not. Another type is a small necked bottle set vertically along a wall. Place a bit of food in the bottle. The mouse runs in and can't get out. Again, in the lethal version you screw the lid back on after the mouse is trapped (filling the bottle with water AFTER you have caught the mouse is another way to dispatch it). If mice are on you counters or shelves, you can make a version of the bucket trap by placing a tube (like a paper towel tube or piece of light piping) balanced on the countertop with the end hovering over a bucket.

The mouse goes for bait at the opposite end of the tube; the off-balance tube falls into the bucket, and voila! The mouse is caught. You can also take a heavy drinking glass, smear bait on the bottom of the glass, and turn it used down. Now tip on side up and balance it on a large coin. The mouse goes under the glass after the bait, bumps the glass and the coin falls trapping the mouse! There are many more DIY ideas on-line, in magazines, and told by neighbors.

There are also several commercial traps available. Lethal traps are always popular. There are “sticky” boards that snag the mouse when it runs across, holding it there till it dies of exposure or you kill it. There are snap traps that operate with a strong steel spring bar that slams down on the mouse when it takes the bait (usually) killing it quickly by smashing its head or snapping its spine. There are also traps the electrocute the mouse when it crosses over a special plate. In the non-lethal or live trap category, there are cage traps, box traps and on-way door traps. These all operate on the premise that the mouse goes in, but cannot go out. They come in different configurations that can trap one mouse at a time, up to dozens. Remember that if you use a wild trap, you must have a place to take the live mice at least 5 miles away, or some other plan for removing them!
