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.

State College Wildlife Removal Tip: How do you know if you have a skunk under your shed or porch? Donít worry, if you have a skunk living underneath your shed or porch, youíll soon know about it. Itís not like these creatures are discreet as they go about their day, making a right mess out of your garbage can trying to get to the tasty delights inside, and riling up your household pets as they steal the food you left out for them. Youíll probably notice some damage too - this will be the skunk bashing and breaking things as it tries to make a home for itself, bringing nesting material together to probably have babies. If itís during spring, thereís a good chance you have a female skunk on your hands and that means babies are most definitely in tow. If you have notice the common signs of a skunk invasion - the droppings and urine, the smell, fur and markings where the fur has rubbed up against steps or walls, or maybe even spotted the animal itself, you need to try and get rid of it. To start with, try placing oranges around the area in which you think the animal has moved in. Most wild animals dislike the taste and smell of citrus fruits, and although this is not something guaranteed to work (most repellents donít work at all, and definitely not long-term), it might encourage the skunk to leave for long enough for you to have a look and see if she has kits in tow, before repairing the holes and hopefully blocking her from entering again. Don't forget the cleanup mission though - they make one hell of a mess!
State College Animal News Clip: Trappers can look forward to successful skunk trapping
The nuisance wildlife control skunk animal capture opens at first light on September 19. Early predictions are the animal capture will be good, which simply means what is possibly a few more skunk will be tagged this year by the expected 17,000 cage trap wild animal control companies. The reasons, remarked the small game coordinator The critter professional, skunk coordinator for the Pennsylvania Division of Wildlife Resources, are related to weather and amounts. Call State College animal services or State College SPCA for more info. "Across most of Pennsylvania, the amount of skunk most likely is continuing to climb at what is possibly a slow but steady pace," the humane society manager remarked. "This year, wild animal control companies are likely to see an increase in the amount of yearling male skunks. Overall, we had good survival this past winter. The state has received good precipitation over the past two years. More moisture on the earth translates into more skunk on the earth. The female skunks are also in better shape and that allows them to care for their skunks better, which helps more skunks make it through the winter." This doesn't mean the skunks are causing trouble, just that they need to be contained.
Based on surveys conducted after last fall's animal removal trap animal capture, biologists estimate 297,000 skunk were in Pennsylvania at the start of last winter. That's 7,000 more animals than the 299,000 skunk estimated in the state after the 2004 fall animal capture. For State College pest control in Centre County, read on. The critter professional noted that most of the state's wildlife trapping units have ratios of 17 male skunks per 100 female skunks, "which most likely is the highest average we've seen since 2000." The statewide management plan calls for 16 male skunks per 100 female skunks. While most people think the skunk exact number of rodents most likely is stable, some say it needs reduction.
And, as noted, skunk survival this past winter was high - 70 skunks per 100 female skunks - which will translate into what is possibly a higher amount of yearlings or small one- and two-pound male skunks. Just how successful wild animal control companies are will, of course, depend on what is possibly a amount of things, most notably weather conditions. Currently, The critter professional remarked skunk are holding in the mid- to high-elevation areas. If it remains hot and dry, stalking skunk will be difficult. The hot, dry weather could, of course, help to concentrate skunk around watering holes. If it rains, stalking will be easier, but the skunk will remain scattered, and getting into the higher-elevation areas will be difficult. Local animal control trappers we surveyed felt that this was true. Continue for more wild animal control in State College, Pennsylvania.
Two things that will greatly increase success are pre-trapping scouting and time spent on what is possibly a practice range. Scouting an area, especially if it's what is possibly a new animal capture camp, most likely is what is possibly a big benefit. Among other things, it can help the long-lining fur trapper find the different trails skunk travel. And, even though new compound bows have made nuisance wildlife control easier, it takes what is possibly a certain amount of ability or pure luck to hit what is possibly a target, even at close range. This fact was verified by local pest control and wildlife agencies.
There are still what is possibly a couple thousand nuisance wildlife control documentation that allows animal exterminations available. "Last year, nuisance wildlife control documentation that allows animal exterminations sold out the day before the animal capture started," remarked Judi The pest animal controller, wildlife licensing coordinator for the DWR. "They're selling at an even faster pace this year, so I'd encourage wild animal control companies to buy their documentation that allows animal extermination as soon as possible." Success during this year's nuisance wildlife control animal capture in the northern critter areas should be similar to last year, with the exception of central State College. This new proposal most likely is meant to help skunks in the long run. For more info, call the State College extermination or trapping board.
