  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?

  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Pennsylvania'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 Pennsylvania'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 Delaware 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 Chester animal control for wildlife issues.

Chester Wildlife Removal Tip: Can a Flying Squirrel actually fly?

I mean, it is in the name right? Unfortunately that is where you're wrong. Flying squirrels do ‘fly’ but not in the same way that birds or bats do. Flying squirrels are more like planes without the massive engines, they just glide through the air.

How do they glide?

It's due to the fact that they are very good climbers (so they are able to get up fairly high) and they have the massive (in comparison to their bodies) flaps of skin which connects from their wrists to their ankles. These two skills combined help them glide for distances which are much greater than their length.

Are they any good at it?

Very much so. Although not the same as the North American kind, there was one example of a Japanese Giant Flying Squirrel which was able to cover a staggering distance of around 160 ft! To put this in some sort of scale the copper base to the torch on the statue of liberty is only 151 ft. This, amazingly, is not the greatest distance recorded however, as there have been some flying squirrels who have managed to (albeit on a downhill slope) cover an astounding 500ft, which is greater than the entire statue of liberty by around 200 ft!

What makes them able to glide for so long?

It's mainly how they are built. It is mainly to do with that flap of skin on the sides of their body, but also the fact that, with the larger flying squirrels they have another piece of skin that connects their two back legs, which further helps with gliding. On the smaller flying squirrels though there isn't the back leg connection, and instead a tail which is feather like. Plus it's the fact that they are light. The northern flying squirrel (the one which is found in North America) weighs 140 grams, again to put this in comparison this is 40 grams less than a 6-multipack of crisps.
