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.

Lebanon 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.
Lebanon Animal News Clip: Legislation targets 'canned catches'
At the Nature Zone Game Wildlife trapping Preserve in Lebanon, sportsmen can roam 400 fenced-in hectares stocked with native wild raccoon and opossum and be assured they'll bag something. If you want an armadillo, they can truck one in, release it and you can go after that. As owner Mike Smith sees it, he runs a place where fathers can teach sons to animal capture without the dangers of an opening day crowd, "and see raccoon in their natural habitat." Oh, one can feel the excitement in the air.
He wonders how anyone could object. "The objection is that they call it wildlife trapping. It's not wildlife trapping," declared Jim The critter professor, owner of a lifelong wildlife management company who helped to stem the rise of pay-for-exterminate wildlife trapping in his home state of TN and who agrees the same thing ought to be done here in Tennessee. Read on for more information about animal control in Lebanon, Tennessee. This year, as has happened for the past decade, the state Legislature is considering a bill to ban paid catches such as the ones offered at Nature Zone's and at least 14 other preserves in Tennessee. This fact was verified by local pest control and wildlife agencies.
"It's like lethally trapping animals in a gray Animating zoo, basically," declared Heidi The Lebanon pest control specialist, senior vice president in the campaigns agency of the Humane Society of the United States. Ms. The Lebanon pest control specialist testified last week at hearings on House Bill 2299, introduced by State Rep. The society, which opposes all forms of wildlife trapping but has campaigned to outlaw only certain types, supports the bill to end what she calls "canned catches." This new proposal is meant to help raccoons in the long run.
"I go to a lot of the wildlife trapping conferences and one of the things the wild animal control companies recognize is that it gives a bad image to wildlife trapping," Ms. The Lebanon pest control specialist declared. "Wildlife trapping a semi-tame animal inside a wooden parried enclosure violates a wildlife management company's fundamental principle of fair chase." By most critter experts' estimates, this is a fair proposal.
But not all wild animal control companies agree. "Many of those animals are destined to the slaughterhouse anyway. It isn't like they're putting them through a lot of pain and suffering as you might be led to believe," declared Bill The critter officer, president of the Unified Sportsmen of Tennessee. Despite this there is no free Lebanon animal services for wildlife in Wilson County. Mr. The critter and rodent officer says he polled members and found no objections to paid catches. "I don't think the argument has anything to do with whether it's sporting or not," Mr. The critter officer declared. "It has to do with whether these guys are operating inside the law or outside the law. Are they running an operation that is clean and neat, or are they operating a raccoon pen?" Most locals agree that this work is better than most Lebanon pest control companies could do.
Guaranteed catches on earths stocked with animals got fresh attention this year when Dick Harrison accidentally trapped a companion on a animal capture at a private ranch in Tennessee. Three years ago, Mr. Harrison bagged about 60 rats during a private animal rodent capture. "It's a classic example of the animal capture being degraded. There was sure no fair-chase conservation ethic there," declared Mr. The critter professor, who heads Orion: The Wildlife management company's Institute in his home in Tennessee. The local Lebanon wildlife control operator agrees with most of the above. Most Lebanon pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
