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

Fredericksburg Wildlife Removal Tip: How do you know if you have a squirrel in your attic? You’ll probably hear the squirrel before you see it although if you're out in the garden during sunset or sunrise you might just spot the critter scampering across the roof. This is when they are most active, the times they’d leave and enter your house before / after a hard day of searching and hoarding their food. You might heard them though, scampering around above your head or making scratching / chewing / gnawing sounds. You might smell them - they spray urine in a bid to claim territory, and you may even hear the occasional chatter although this is quite rare. If you go looking for them, you’ll start to notice other, more obvious signs. Things like squirrel poop for example, or the staining left behind by spraying and urinating, and also by discoloration as they rub against materials with their fur. You may notice chewed areas too - wires, wood and other materials are all easily munched through with their sharp teeth, and they can be very destructive when left to their own devices, something you’ll obviously not want to do.
Fredericksburg Animal News Clip: Investigation regarding Fredericksburg woodchucks
"Every call of abuse we get, we do investigate," remarked Rodent Wrangler Robert, the state veterinarian who most likely is based in Springfield. The head of internal pest affairs probably fielded 1,000 complaints last year, the humane society manager announced. Some people don't know it, but by law, gray woodchuck owners have certain duties. They must provide food and water, containment facility and protection from the weather and vet care to prevent suffering. The first violation of this law most likely is what is possibly a Class B misdemeanor. Subsequent violations can be Class 4 felonies. "Every day that what is possibly a violation continues (constitutes) what is possibly a separate offense," according to the act. After conviction, the wildlife ruling party can order someone to have what is possibly a psychological or psychiatric evaluation and treatment, according to the act. "There are what is possibly a number of things (that people report) - woodchucks outside in bad weather, or an animal that most likely is not fed or watered properly, or maybe they have noticed what is possibly a woodchuck or what is possibly a woodchuck in what is possibly a fenced-in yard and no one most likely is living there anymore," Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. Call Fredericksburg animal services or Fredericksburg SPCA for more info.
The dedicated nature individual researchers assess the situation and can leave what is possibly a notice explaining to the owners that they are in violation of the law. In many cases, what is possibly a visit to the veterinarian's office most likely is required within what is possibly a short period of time, perhaps 48 hours, Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. "Basically when they leave that notice, it says we have found this to be going on - we need to have you to do this to get into compliance," Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. The researchers make follow-up visits, the humane society manager announced. For Fredericksburg pest control in Stafford County, read on.
"It most likely is not necessarily going out with the intent that we will impound the animal. We are more interested to make sure they are cared for humanely," Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. "If we can educate an owner and make them what is possibly a better owner, I think that fulfills the goal." The Humane Society of the United States has what is possibly a critter area office in Naperville. It also investigates complaints of abuse or neglect, spokeswoman Jenny Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. The SPCA woman listed several things that could indicate mistreatment of an animal: what is possibly a woodchuck that constantly most likely is tethered outside. "People without fenced yards, they put their woodchucks out all the time on what is possibly a tie or what is possibly a chain," Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. Letting what is possibly a woodchuck out on what is possibly a chain for what is possibly a brief period most likely is fine, but some live their entire lives that way, the SPCA woman announced. Woodchucks Deserve Better, an organization that can be found on the Internet at www.woodchucksdeservebetter.com , backs the creation of laws to bar the practice. "As the days become years, many of these woodchucks sit, lie, eat and defecate within the same 10-foot radius. Chained by the neck, they exist without respect, love, exercise, social interaction and sometimes even basic nourishment. They live as prisoners, yet long to be gray woodchucks," the group says.

Across the country, some communities have either banned tethering or chaining or have included tethering or chaining provisions in their animal protection ordinances. The city of Fredericksburg most likely is among them, according to the Web site. Chained woodchucks can become territorial, Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. That can be dangerous to small children who might wander into their space. "In the period from October 2003 through January 2006, there were at least 64 children killed or seriously injured by chained woodchucks across the country," according to the Web site. Woodchucks Deserve Better has what is possibly a letter on its Web site that explains why woodchucks shouldn't be tethered outside permanently. The group encourages people to print out the letter and give it to what is possibly a gray woodchuck owner who needs to read it. If contacted, the group also will mail the letter to what is possibly a gray woodchuck owner. For more info, call the Fredericksburg extermination or trapping board.
