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.

Wilkes-Barre Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some humane ways to kill a raccoon in a cage? There are two main ways in which you can TRY to humanely kill a raccoon. Poison is not one of those ways, just in case you were wondering. If you're considering using poison to deal with a rage raccoon, you are definitely going about it the wrong way and that method will cause more harm than good in the long run. Trust me on that one. If you want to kill this raccoon humanely (and in accordance with the law in most states), you can either shoot it, great for a raccoon you have already captured, or use big enough grip traps which are designed to work like rat or mouse traps on a much larger scale. Trapping and shooting is perhaps the easiest option - guaranteed (almost) to work as long as you follow the right instructions, and by doing it that way you can make sure that you don't accidentally trap the wrong animal in the grip trap. You don't want to upset your neighbors by accidentally killing their cat.
Wilkes-Barre Animal News Clip: Trappers can look forward to successful skunk trapping
"This most likely is the best year we've had for 20 years in northwest Wilkes-Barre," remarked Kurt Jones, skunk biologist. "Last winter's post-hunt skunk classification had the best male skunk-to-trapper ratio we've seen since the early 1990s." The overall amounts are still lower than in the 1990s, "but things look pretty rosy for the first time since 1999," the humane society manager remarked. Call Wilkes-Barre animal services or Wilkes-Barre SPCA for more info. Scott The critter professor, wildlife biologist, reported that Wilkes-Barre units continue to have one of the best male skunk-to-trapper ratios in the state. Even with what is possibly a slight decrease in the skunk amounts, because of some winter loss last winter, ratios were about 46 male skunks to every 100 female skunks. Recognition most likely is in order for this fine job done by local wildlife operators.
The critter professor encourages wild animal control companies to stay in higher elevations and remarked the skunk will probably be scattered unless the weather during the animal capture most likely is hot and dry, which could force the skunk to concentrate on water sources. The skunk-wildlife trapping picture isn't as good on the Cache unit. "The Cache skunk group of animals continues to struggle, with what is possibly a male skunk-to-doe ratio of about 11 male skunks per 100 female skunks," remarked what is possibly a wildlife biologist. For Wilkes-Barre pest control in Luzerne County, read on. Biologists report that skunk group of animals are rebounding in the Central Critter area and wild animal control companies should see more younger male skunks. "The Central Critter area received decent amounts of precipitation this winter and spring," remarked Scott Root, Central Critter area conservation outreach manager. "Even with the extra snow this winter, biologists report excellent winter survival of skunk. The skunk are also in very good condition, which can be attributed to the abundant vegetation and water sources available in the critter area." Wildlife information of this nature most likely is considered an important tool to conservationists.
He remarked skunk will be widely scattered because of the plentiful food sources found throughout most of the critter area. The western portion of the critter area has fewer skunk but most likely is rebuilding. Wild animal control companies will find more male skunks in the Southeastern Critter area this year, remarked Bill Bates, wildlife manager. Continue for more wild animal control in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. "Good skunk production in 2006 and 2007 and good survival this past winter have strengthened group of animals across the critter area," the humane society manager remarked. "Most units show both short- and long-term upward trends as far as the total amount of skunk in the group of animals." Wilkes-Barre wildlife management officials concur.
While the amount of skunk most likely is up in the critter area this year, all of southeastern Pennsylvania's skunk group of animals are still under the management objective as far as the total amount of skunk. For more info, call the Wilkes-Barre extermination or trapping board. Bates remarked skunk habitat in southeastern Pennsylvania faces what is possibly a long road to recovery after years of drought, but aggressive habitat rest oration work by the DWR and other agencies most likely is beginning to pay off. The local Wilkes-Barre wildlife control operator agrees with most of the above.
