  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?
  • Digging Lawn or Under House?
  • 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 Susquehanna 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 Montrose animal control for wildlife issues.

Montrose Wildlife Removal Tip: Where Should I Relocate A Trapped Squirrel?

Relocating squirrels might not be legal in some states; however if you have captured a squirrel and wish to relocate it, there are few things that you need to keep in mind.

First, you need to take the captured squirrel far away from your home, at least ten miles or more. Or the squirrels will get a good sense to tracking and will find their way back to your premises and you will find yourself going through the same situation as before.

Second, try not to leave the squirrel in the cage for too long, the animal would be under stress because of its entrapment and it might get dehydrated. It would be a humane act if you gave it some water to drink through a hose. Offering food might not be a good idea as it would be scared and would not be interested to eat anything. You could try giving it some wet food like slices of orange.

Third, handle the cage carefully; beware not to stick your fingers inside the bars. The squirrels have sharp teeth and since they are trapped they would be afraid of the situation they are in and might as well bite or scratch you. Also keep your children and pets far from the cage.

Fourth, when you are releasing the squirrel make sure to stand behind the cage while doing so. The creature will dart out of the cage as you open it, as it would want to get away as soon as possible. Stand back as the animal might bite you in self-defence.

Where to re-locate the squirrel?

Laws might prohibit you from releasing the squirrel on public lands. However there is a debate on which place or area is the best to relocate a squirrel. Some people think that the woods or a park is a good place to free them, many say that an undeveloped area with water available nearby would be a nice place and they would adapt themselves in these areas. No matter where they are left relocation can be hard for animals as they are used to home territories.

What should be done with baby squirrels?

While trapping squirrels make sure that if there is a nest you trap the mother and her babies. If you have two traps of caged squirrels, it is recommended that you release the babies first and then the mother. Sometimes the baby squirrels can be abandoned if their mother is not experienced and is recommended that you check the site every day to make sure the babies have been taken by their mother. The babies need to be warm and a hot water bag or a jar of hot water should be kept nearby, the babies will automatically move towards the warmth. The squirrels take their young ones one at a time but will not touch them if they are cold. Try monitoring them for a day as sometimes the squirrels nest might be a bit far away.
