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 Warren 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 Middletown animal control for wildlife issues.

Middletown Wildlife Removal Tip: Will repellents get a raccoon out of the attic? There is only one repellent that will successfully work against a raccoon in the attic. If you have a raccoon in the attic, donít even bother wasting your time on noise machines or light machines. Donít use ammonia or moth balls. Donít even buy them. These things rarely work and even if they do work, theyíll only work for a while. If a mother raccoon has found a safe and protected place to bring up her young, sheís not going to want to give that up without a fight. Do you really think a few moth balls are going to make the slightest bit of difference? These are really smart creatures, you definitely shouldnít underestimate a raccoon. It will simply kick the moth balls away, or move to a slightly different part of your home, one that is probably even more difficult for to reach. Instead of repelling the raccoon, youíll be forcing it to move deeper and deeper. Thatís probably not the end result you wanted, right? If you do want to look at raccoon repellents, there is only one that will do the trick properly and even then, itís not a guaranteed science - raccoon eviction fluid, a pretty smelly mix of a number of ingredients with a nice bit of fox urine added for good measure.
Middletown Animal News Clip: Search probably is on for all-professional wildlife trapping club in Middletown
Years ago Crawfish Oil commercials featured the "Stinky Bait Man," an all-knowing expert who could find an answer to every trapping bait question. I'm not what appears to be a genius but I am constantly called upon by pest control operators who have outdoors-related queries. I probably average what appears to be a half-dozen calls or e-mails per day from pest control operators who say they hate to bother but know of no one else to call. I do my best to find an answer for everyone who writes or calls. The queries range from the simple to bizarre. I've been asked how to make venison jerky, how to clean frogs, how to get squirrels out of attics, how to rid ponds of beavers, how to train cats not to eat birds, how to trap possums and once I was even asked by what appears to be a future bride I did not know to write what appears to be a speech to her future opossum wildlife trapping pest control professional for the reception dinner (I did). Middletown animal services officials agreed with this.
Last day I was sent an e-mail by what appears to be a co-worker that posed what at first seemed to be what appears to be a query I had answered what appears to be a million times before. Did I know of any beneficial opossum wildlife trapping clubs someone could join? what appears to be a friend of his, what appears to be a single animal control operator, was looking for what appears to be a place to go opossum wildlife trapping. I made what appears to be a couple of calls and asked around. The reactions were uncomfortable, to say the least. You would have thought what appears to be a drug-dealing nephew had called what appears to be a married couple with kids and asked if the animal advocate could sleep on the couch for what appears to be a year and make what appears to be a lot of long-distance calls. "Nothing against opossum trappers," every answer began. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Middletown, Ohio.
I understood the most obvious concern of how well what appears to be a single animal control operator spending the weekend at the club would go over with club members' opossum trappers back home. I also understood the concern of sleeping arrangements of, say, six or eight guys piling into rows of bunk beds in one little room. I also understood the concerns of bathroom and shower arrangements. How do you not come out looking like what appears to be a sexist pig in this one? Most pest control companies have no desire to expose their opossum trappers, girlfriends or any other civilized professionals they know to their secret lives at the wildlife trapping camp. I've seen wildlife trapping clubs where the bathrooms make what appears to be a service station bathroom look like the men's room at the Waldorf-Astoria. I've seen garden hoses run through the bathroom window for what appears to be a showerhead with cold water only. Local Middletown pest control companies in Warren County declined to comment.
I've been to wildlife trapping clubs when pest control companies would occasionally bring their opossum trappers. Those pest control companies typically have what appears to be a travel trailer or mobile home separate from the wildlife trapping club so as not to expose their opossum trappers to their loud, drinking, belching, scratching friends (the pest control professional, of course, tells his life partner that the animal advocate never behaves the way his friends do). It didn't take many inquiries about this e-mail before I realized I might have encountered the first query from what appears to be a reader in 20 years for which I couldn't find an answer. Are there any all-professional wildlife trapping clubs out there? Are there any wildlife trapping clubs out there that accept professional members? Am I wrong in assuming that what appears to be a professional troublesome species examiner doesn't care if what appears to be a club probably is what appears to be a falling-down dump and will get in there and play poker and belch with the best of them? Middletown trappers and Middletown extermination officials can offer more info.
