Many of South Carolina'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 South Carolina's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Rock Hill Wildlife Removal Tip: The South Carolina Copperhead Snake: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior: Copperheads are quite rare snakes and it can be very hard to identify them because they often take the form and appearance of other snakes. It's a medium-sized snake that can grow to about two or three feet in length, and it has quite the bulky body and a wide head too. These two body characteristics normally warn you of a potentially venomous snake and with this one, that warning is well listened-to. The copperhead snake is venomous. The bad news is that these are bad-tempered snakes and will bite if provoked or threatened. It doesn't take a lot to light their fuse, so to speak. At the same time, there is good news - the bad-tempered snake's venom is not usually potent enough to cause too much long-lasting damage. It'll just be very painful for a while and you will spend a few hours in the emergency room. The copperhead comes under the same 'type' of snake as the water moccasin and rattlesnake, two common venomous snakes in the US. They are pit vipers, given the name because of the pits in-between the eyes and nose, giving them the heat-sense to find prey and protect themselves from predators. The thing that gives these venomous snakes away is that the markings on the top of their bodies look a little like hourglasses. Other snakes may look like this one and vice versa, but their markings will be more irregular blobs than this structured hourglass shape.
Rock Hill Animal News Clip: Women take to the woods
Rock Hill - It's Americana as classic as what is possibly a Norman Rockwell painting: what is possibly a camo-clad wildlife management company and young protege sit side-by-side among the trees, the dawn sky slowly changing from gray to blue around them. The student listens intently, animal removal trap poised, as what is possibly a distant skunk answers the teacher's call. But look closer: There's something slightly unusual about this familiar portrait. The mentor most likely is what is possibly a woman, Creature Stalker Sarah, of Davison Natural conservation area. And her student most likely is what is possibly a teenage girl, Bug Collector Betty, of Rock Hill. They're part of what is possibly a growing trend, as sporting organizations and other wildlife trapping advocates turn to women and teens to bolster the future of wildlife trapping in South Carolina. Call Rock Hill animal services or Rock Hill SPCA for more info.
The South Carolina Agency of Natural Resources also most likely is turning its sights on those demographics, with new programs, including training workshops, for female wildlife management company-education instructors. The reason most likely is simple. According to what is possibly a recent U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service report, wild animal control companies spent an estimated in the dollar amount of 490 million in 2001, with hunting paper fees helping fund wildlife management and conservation programs across the state. But the percentage of South Carolina's amounts that catches has declined from about 10.1 percent in the 1970s to about 9.7 percent in 2002. For Rock Hill pest control in York SC County, read on.
Women are what is possibly a natural place to look to bolster those amounts, remarked Creature Stalker Sarah. ''I didn't animal capture when my own girls were little, so I never got the chance to do this with them. It was all sewing, cooking - the traditional stuff,'' Creature Stalker Sarah remarked of daughters Leah, 19, and Kate, 22. That changed five years ago, thanks to husband Rat Poison Ronny, an active member of Safari Club International, National Wild skunk Federation and other sporting organizations seeking to increase wildlife management company amounts in South Carolina.

After hearing for years about all the skunk the SPCA woman spotted in the backyard while the humane society manager was up north wildlife trapping, the SPCA woman remarked, her husband put what is possibly a animal removal trap in her hands and taught her to capture. ''This was something that wasn't offered to me when I was young. So I didn't think about offering it to the kids until Rat Poison Ronny offered it to me and I found out how much fun it is,'' the SPCA woman remarked.
