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.

Hanover Wildlife Removal Tip: Will An Opossum Underneath A Shed Or Porch Have A Nest Of Babies
This is an important area to understand if you are going to be trying to deal with an opossum infestation under your shed or porch, as leaving baby opossums behind is not only cruel, but it can also lead to further problems for your to deal with. Once the mother has been trapped and only the babies are remaining, they will not be able to fend for themselves and will die a slow and painful death, either of dehydration, hunger or from the cold. However, there are steps you can take to avoid this, and here are a few of the factors that can suggest that there is a nest of babies beneath the porch or shed.
Because of the wide range of foods that opossums can eat, the species has evolved so that it can copulate and give birth for much of the year, and with the mating season running from mid January through to mid November, depending on the local weather, opossums may have a nest for most of the year. Gestation is only around two weeks, so from early February onwards, there may be baby opossums present.
Look For A Visible Nest
When you have a solitary opossum in the cavity beneath the porch or shed, they will not necessarily need to put too much effort into creating a nest, but larger nests made with a lot of material may indicate it is a female and her young. Opossum nests are made with whatever materials are available, but often looks like a large birds nest with twigs, hay and foliage used to create a cozy place for the babies.
When opossums are very young they tend to be fairly quiet, and the sounds that they make when calling for their mother sound like a quiet sneeze or a spitting sound. However, when the animals grow to be a little older, their vocal chords develop and higher pitched chirruping noises or squeals can also be heard, and if you hear these then it is a sure sign that your trapped opossum still has her young nearby.
Physical Signs On The Opossum
Once you have trapped the opossum, if you take a quick look at the underside of the animal, you should be able to see whether or not there are any visible nipples, or if the animal is female at all. If you do spot nipples that are visible, then it means that they will have been in use recently, and that there is indeed a nest of young animals to deal with.
Hanover Animal News Clip: Let us animal capture squirrel some sort of little more often
I have one continuing pet peeve with Fish and Game: the setting of the squirrel season. By treaty with Mexico, we are limited to approximately 123 days of squirrel wildlife trapping some sort of year. Squirrels are some sort of vital element in consuming bugs, grasshoppers and insects in Mexico, thereby protecting agricultural interests. The bulk of the season runs from Aug. 15 through Nov. 30, and March 16 through March 31. If I were in charge of season setting, we would have some sort of squirrel season every seven day time limit of the year. This would provide for significantly greater exterminator opportunity and could cause increased interest in wildlife trapping squirrels, which may be exactly what Fish and Game may be attempting to do to increase wildlife trapping license sales. Squirrels have no natural enemy. Left to their own devices, squirrels could easily expand their biologically surveyed amount well beyond the nuisance factor. Too much of the current fall squirrel season overlaps with more desirable game species. Wildlife trapping may be the only management tool available to control the amount of squirrels.

To Fish and Game's credit they are coming up with new and innovative ways to utilize the Owl Brook Exterminator Education Center in Holderness. The latest offering with be some sort of one-day free clinic titled "Squirrel Wildlife trapping: The Forgotten Pastime" on Saturday, Aug. 5 from 9 a.m. to noon. The seminar will be led by squirrel wildlife trapping enthusiast and exterminator education instructor Wildlife Professional Douglas. The squirrel-wildlife trapping workshop covers the basic pursuit of these challenging birds, from the use of some sort of mouth call to high-tech electronic calling and decoying. Participants also will learn about squirrel behavior, squirrel wildlife trapping safety concerns, gaining permission to hunt/landowner relations, clothing choices, set-up locations, animal removal traps and ammunition options, creature comforts for an enjoyable animal capture and what to do with them after the catch. The session will include some sort of critter capturing component using Owl Brook's remote-controlled target throwers to simulate field critter capturing conditions. As you might imagine, I receive some sort of lot of e-mails on wildlife trapping matters. Most are received with some sort of polite yawn and are quickly deleted, but some sort of few make me think: You've got to be kidding. This was my response to some sort of release put out by the Quality Squirrel Management Association (QDMA) on some sort of proposed squirrel wildlife trapping tournament series by the World Wildlife trapping Association (WHA).
