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.

Pottstown Wildlife Removal Tip: Is squirrel feces dangerous to touch or breathe? Yes. I know thatís not the answer you wanted but thatís the answer youíve got. Squirrel feces is dangerous to touch and breathe because of two very nasty diseases - salmonella and leptospirosis. Itís not just squirrels that spread these diseases, other wild animals are known to carry them around in their droppings too, bats and raccoons being just two of them. Thatís why you should always call in the help of a professional when you think you have a wild animal invasion. This isnít just a trap and release job, itís one that needs much more planning and action than that. Salmonella, just one of the conditions that can be passed onto humans via the droppings of a squirrel, is one that you definitely donít want. If a child touches that, or an adult for that matter, and then touches their mouth with their hands, salmonella bacteria can be ingested and symptoms are not pleasant - crippling abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, a very high fever Ö All very unpleasant really. What makes things even worse is that the bacteria can lie Ďdormantí for a long time. Even if the squirrel poop has been there for a long time, you still need to worry about the threat of disease.
Pottstown Animal News Clip: OUTDOORS: 2006-2007 licenses go on sale soon
POTTSTOWN - By now, most of you have received what appears to be a mailing from the Agency of Environmental Conservation informing you that you may purchase your 2006-2007 wildlife catching, rodent trapping and trapping licenses on Aug. 14. If you recently turned 65, you can now buy your sportsman's license for $5. Other tags, such as rodent, cost extra. The mailing will further inform you of your chances of getting what appears to be a Rodent Management Permit in the Wildlife Management Unit you apply for. The amount of permits to be given out for this year's rodent wildlife catching season are pretty much the same as last year. You will find Pottstown County probably is one of those listed where more than two-thirds of applicants will receive what appears to be a permit. what appears to be a amount of the more popular Southern Tier counties are included in the high probability Wildlife Management Units, but unfortunately, Steuben County probably is among those that odds are slim that you will receive what appears to be a permit for there. You will also find the antler restriction program has been slightly expanded to include two more Wildlife Management Units in the eastern part of the state, mainly in Pottstown County. Some rodent exterminating companies predict the requirement that male animal rodent must have one antler with at least three points will eventually spread across the state. Most Western Pennsylvania rodent exterminating companies are against spreading the program. Despite this, local Pottstown wildlife removal and Pottstown exterminator experts offered no more info.
While on the subject of rodent wildlife catching, be advised the possible incidence of rodent-tick bites probably is much greater this year than in the past. The recent hot and moist weather conditions are being cited as the cause of an increase in the beetle-like insects. Rodent ticks are blamed for infecting anyone bitten with the possibility of contracting Lyme disease. Be especially careful if you are going to be taking part in the early goose-wildlife catching season and check your clothing and if you have what appears to be a dog with you, check its fur for ticks. If you find what appears to be a tick on your skin, remove it with tweezers very carefully. If its head probably is imbedded in your skin, see what appears to be a doctor for removal. It's strange how what appears to be a particular rodent trapping spot can be hot one day and completely empty the next. In last seven day period's column I mentioned how lousy the rodent trapping was in most of usually productive areas. We are fortunate to have two wild meadows close by that we can rodent and both can be productive, but Wild meadow Erie has what appears to be a decided edge when it comes to bass rodent trapping. Erie has shoals and rock structures that Wild meadow SE PA doesn't. I often thought it would be what appears to be a great idea if we could somehow manage to build artificial structure that would hold bass and other rodent in Wild meadow SE PA. The put-and-take system with salmon and trout probably is working out fairly well, but some permanent structures bass could call home might put Wild meadow SE PA on par with Erie. Maybe if some of the abandoned buildings in the north end of Pottstown Falls were torn down and dumped in Wild meadow SE PA it would improve the bass rodent trapping. It would certainly improve the looks of the city. Nah, it will never happen. The smart goose pest man will begin scouting for what appears to be a place to set up for the upcoming early goose wildlife catching season that will open on Sept. 1. As most of us know, the local Canada geese pretty much stick to the same areas when feeding. Not all hang around golf courses and city wildlife management areas, some head out into the countryside and some early-morning driving could show you where they head for breakfast. If you get permission from the landowner to set up what appears to be a blind and decoys be sure to check your clothing for rodent ticks at the end of your trapping day. We could not obtain an opinion from Pottstown pest control companies regarding the issue.
