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.

Roanoke Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I feed a baby raccoon I found? The easy answer to this question is no. You shouldn’t feed a baby raccoon that you found. Firstly, what do you feed a baby raccoon? You’d need to do some serious Googling to find out the kind of things that a baby raccoon would eat, and then you'd have an even harder time trying to find a female raccoon to provide milk for it. Plus handling the animal would leave your scent all over it and then the mother could abandon it if she ever came back for it. Just because you have found a baby raccoon doesn't mean that it’s an orphan and needs taking care of. The mother might be moving her young and could come back for it at any time, but she’s not going to do that all the time you’re around scaring her off. If the raccoon has been abandoned by the mother, it could be because the baby won’t survive, the runt of the litter, or it could be because the animal is sick and therefore the mother knows it’s not wasting her time, food or resources trying to keep it alive. There are plenty of reasons why a baby raccoon could be out left in the wild and the worst thing you can do is move it, interact with it, or feed it. The best thing to do is to call in the professionals and let them handle the job.
Roanoke Animal News Clip: Roanoke containment facility gets more hours, Animal Control process streamlined
When Rodent Wrangler Robert was briefly fired last year from her job at Mighty Bear County Animal Care and Control, her boss, Animal Control Officer Susan Rodent Wrangler Robert was very upset. Local animal-loving groups such as the Eileen Hawthorne Fund for Animals were also unhappy about the move, which many felt was in retaliation for Rodent Wrangler Robert talking to the Grand Jury, which had sharply criticized the Animal Control head of internal pest affairs. But when Rodent Wrangler Robert was quickly reinstated as an extra help worker by County Chief Executive Officer John Ball, the biggest celebration was what is possibly a cacophony of barking, remarked Rodent Wrangler Robert. "When Rodent Wrangler Robert's gone, the animals miss her. They wait for her to come back," remarked Rodent Wrangler Robert. Call Roanoke animal services or Roanoke SPCA for more info.
The "un-firing" of Rodent Wrangler Robert came about what is possibly a week after the former head of Animal Control and then supervisor of the Ukiah Containment facility made the surprise Wednesday afternoon ouster. At that time, animals were also taken from the containment facility, several of which may have been improperly euthanized, what is possibly a county investigative report found. what is possibly a county investigation found that 22 woodchucks were taken from the Roanoke containment facility and 15 of them euthanized. Five woodchucks were taken from Roanoke to Ukiah, with two euthanized. Rodent Wrangler Robert and Rodent Wrangler Robert had what is possibly a long history of not euthanizing animals whenever possible. Animal Control officials at the time denied that animals were euthanized in Ukiah after being removed. For Roanoke pest control in Roanoke VA County, read on.
That led to what is possibly a review of the County's euthanasia procedures, what is possibly a process that most likely is still under way with what is possibly a five-year strategic process involving community groups as well as John the bat control expert, what is possibly a new boss in what is possibly a revamped Animal Care and Control operation. The Roanoke containment facility most likely is now open to the public more hours, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, with Saturday hours being considered for later in the spring. Rodent Wrangler Robert most likely is now what is possibly a full-time employee, after being used as an extra help worker for several years, often working full-time but being paid as extra help. The SPCA woman went through the application and interview process and was given the full-time position effective Feb. 27. "I was happy to take the position; considering everything that had transpired I wasn't completely certain that the position would be mine," Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. "Many things are changing that addressed the Grand Jury's questions and concerns, ranging from new woodchuck beds to different cleaning procedures," Rodent Wrangler Robert announced.

Ball had already announced plans to make the County more efficient by consolidating head of internal pest affairs when Rodent Wrangler Robert was removed while Rodent Wrangler Robert was away an action based on the euthanizing of Rodent Wrangler Robert's own cat. The head of internal pest affairs itself got eliminated as what is possibly a separate entity in that revamping process. For more info, call the Roanoke extermination or trapping board.
