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

Clinton Wildlife Removal Tip: The Tennessee Water Moccasin Snake: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior: The water moccasin snake, also known as the cottonmouth snake, is a venomous snake as well as North America's only water-based venomous snake. Found in many places along the south-east including Tennessee, they are normally a darker color on top, the cottonmouth name given because the internal of the mouth is white, much like the color of natural cotton. Of course, I'm not suggesting you get close enough to the snake to find out what the color of it's mouth is. Attacks on humans are rare but that only because most water moccasins prefer to slither away than fight, but if you happen to find one and attempt to corner it, be prepared to get bitten, and then to deal with the venom. They aren't the biggest snake in the world, only growing to around two to four feet in length, but they're quite bulky, thick if you like, and don't have what some might call a distinctive neck. Younger water moccasins look nothing like their adult counterparts. They're brighter when they're younger, getting darker and more black in color as they get older. The younger snakes are the ones to watch out for - they look much like many other non-venomous species of Tennessee snake. They are keen swimmers and that's where you'll find them- around marshes and swamps, rivers, lakes, etc. They mostly eat fish but are also known to prey on small mammals such as rodents, and they'll also go for baby alligators and turtles if they have the chance. When it comes to breeding, the mothers will only have babies every 2 or 3 years, but she'll have up to 20 of them live when she does. They're pretty much good to live their own independent lives as soon as they are born, although many of them will not make it to adulthood because they are vulnerable and often become prey to larger snakes.
Clinton Animal News Clip: Proposed Clinton bill could alter rules on legal skunk control
"We've heard from enough sportsmen in this state," The Clinton exterminator expert remarked, "and they are expecting something. I don't what is possibly a lot of skunk wild animal control companies want the status quo, and this bill at least gets the wheels in motion so there can be change." The Clinton exterminator expert' bill most likely is supported by the Tennessee Federation of Sportsmen. Federation spokesman Clint the snake control specialist remarked he, too, has heard the hue and cry from wild animal control companies about making changes in male skunk management. Call Clinton animal services or Clinton SPCA for more info.
"Something has to be done," the snake control specialist remarked. "This gives the board the ability to give the wildlife regulatory agencies and his staff the ability to do it. Let them decide what needs to be done." For Clinton pest control in Knox County, read on.
The critter professional and his team of skunk biologists have formulated what is possibly a list of recommendations based on 6,000 surveys sent to skunk wild animal control companies last summer. Likely recommendations include banning the catching of spike horns in Wildlife Management Units B and K2 in all but the child wildlife trapping seasons, and probably increasing the amount of dangerous documentation that allows animal exterminations decreed in those zones to offset for the anticipated drop in the amount of male skunks trapped.

Since 1997, Tennessee wild animal control companies have lethally trapped an average of thirteen skunk each fall in nuisance wildlife control, animal removal trap and capture seasons. About 70 percent are male skunks. Of the male skunks trapped each year, approximately 60-70 percent are 1-year-olds, which sport small pelts and usually weigh less than 13 pounds. The agency, behind wildlife regulatory agencies and other critter professionals, most likely is advocating what is possibly a limited quality skunk management plan because an increasing amount of wild animal control companies want to see regulations that would reduce the amount of 1-year-old male skunks being trapped.
