  • We Can Solve It!
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.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Sumner county animal services for assistance.

Hendersonville Wildlife Removal Tip: Opossum Repellent
In some parts of the world possums are considered pests. Possums are not that destructive to yards, lawn and cultivation as other wildlife, but they still can create havoc. Possums are classified as omnivores, so they are very much comfortable with eating fruits and vegetable that is planted in the garden. They also tend to find their way to pet food in the house or bird feeders in the lawn. They are also known to look for food in trash cans over night. In such situations it is recommended that rather than killing or harming the possum and trying to catch it, it should be discouraged in your territory by the use of repellants, which will cause it to take shelter elsewhere. The use of repellants is safe for the possums as well as other pets and plants. Many different methods can be used to drive away a possum. Some are mentioned below.

The use of molasses is very efficient method of repelling possum. The repellant can be prepared by adding a cup of molasses to a liter of water. This repellant can be safely sprayed on plants. For more effectiveness a small amount of dish washing liquid can be added to the repellant, which will result in the sticking of the repellant to the plants. A small amount of this mixture sprayed on plants will protect them from becoming possum food and will not affect the growth of the plant. The plants that have been sprayed on, should be checked after a rain or after a few days to check if a re-spray is required. Because if one wont check this requirement the likely hood of plant becoming food of the opossums is much more higher than one thinks specially if one knows that there are opossums in the neighborhood.

Mothballs are easily available in any store and are known to be effective when used as a possum repellant. To the possums, mothballs are very unappealing, and they are also available in different fragrances, so they may not leave a bad odor. As an alternative of mothballs, naphthalene crystals can also be used. The advantage of mothballs and naphthalene crystals is that they can be used in spaces where other repellants cannot be used, such as in a crawlspace, basement, underneath a porch or any another area that is difficult to reach. One problem with mothballs is that children or other pet animals might end up in contact with them. Thus they pose danger to not only children but also pet animals in the house so one should be very careful while using them

Hendersonville Animal News Clip: Raccoons in the attic - Has your attic been invaded by the raccoons? If yes, then don't worry, all you need to do is first know why they are there and what you can do to remove them. Raccoons are night animals. They are big and have a great smelling power. Any covered place, warm, dry and cozy is just a perfect spot for them to reside. Usually a mother raccoon during her pregnancy looks for a safe, dry spot where she can deliver her babies and that just might be your very attic.

Raccoons can be spotted easily either by the noise they make at dusk or at night or by simply sighting them due to their big size. Once, you're sure it's a raccoon all you need to do is devise a plan to remove them from your place.

Raccoons can easily climb walls, and can enter from vent holes or broken wire grids. Once, they are inside the place, they set their areas where they'll dine and do litter. However, this always ends up ugly either because they damage all your property or die due to electric current while scratching off the insulating material of wires or by falling down from heights in their attempt to make it to the attic.

To avoid cleaning up the mess and damage that can be possibly caused by the raccoons, here's what you should do. First of all, look for the entry points from where the raccoons can enter. It can be a broken wire grid, the ducts, chimneys or any hole in your attic. Take a good look, and then close all the holes. What you can do is permanently shut down all the inlets except for one. Insert a tennis ball sprayed with ammonia in the hole and cover it by old newspapers. The smell of ammonia will become unbearable for the raccoons, and they'll leave.

Make your attic fully lighted and a bit noisy so that it becomes uncomfortable for the raccoons to stay and so that they may find a new place for themselves.

Know that the raccoons are the animals that follow their smelling instincts. Therefore, keep your place spotless. Enclose all the garbage in big plastic bags inside dustbins. Make sure nothing is left behind, not even a crumb of food. It would be even better if you cover your dustbins with lids and place heavy material over the bin to keep it close. Or simply use a dustbin that has a metal lock so that there's no food that may attract the raccoon to come.
