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.

Yorktown Wildlife Removal Tip: Is it legal for me to trap a squirrel? With a little bit of research, you’ll soon understand that getting rid of a squirrel isn’t going to be as easy as catching it and then releasing it somewhere else. There are lots of things to take into consideration first - rules and regulations, laws that prevent you from taking certain actions, the environment around you to think about. In most states, it is not legal to kill these animals, or trap them, unless you are a professional wildlife control person. You may also need to look at obtaining a license before you can trap the squirrel - certain states dictate that you need to have a 'hunting’ license, determining the creatures as game. Ignoring the rules could leave you with a fine and in some cases, even a prison sentence, just one more reason why you will need to do your research before you take any action. I would always advise giving a professional call. Even if you don’t use their services, you’ll find their information and advice priceless. Every little helps in situations like this.

Yorktown Animal News Clip: How to kill mice: Mice are pesky little animals that can cause great damage to one's house when proper measures are not taken to curb their infestation. There are many ways that one can use to kill these mice and they are mainly mechanical or chemical in approach. One of the newest inventions in this field is the modern rat zapper with ultra infrared capabilities. This device is preferred by those who refuse using nominal poison due to secondary poisoning that it has on pets other pets which could be lurking around such as the cat. They are a sharp contrast to conventional snaps that seldom work and are also bound to leave behind some bloody mess when the rat finally gets trapped in-between the metal clenches. The machine works by sensing when rats are approaching the unit and closing appropriately.

It's been close to two decades ever since the very first zapper was invented & ever since it has undergone a myriad of improvements. There are generally two category units of these devices available in the market. The lesser and more compact unit is ideally suitable for rats that are of slight physical make-up and run up on dual AA cells. The bigger unit is also popularly known as ultra Rat Zapper. Though it still works well with mice, it is huge enough to capture other pesky rodents such as chipmunks as well. This system operates on powerful multifunctional D-cell. Mice zapper conventional ultra infrared is on sale in various stores all over US including online ones.

But others still believe that setting up traps is tantamount to time wastage because the little rodents would soon learn to circumvent past the apparatus once one or two of them have been caught up by the structure. As such, you should just get yourself a cat that would instinctively chase around and eat up these pesky rodents. Moreover unlike other pets cats are usually hygienic and would not excrete on your sofa or carpet, once you train them they will find other places out of the house to go around their business. With cats as your rat eaters, it would be an imperative win-win condition for both of you. Mice usually lurk around houses and principally survive up on foodstuff that remains from man's food or those of his/her pets. They would contaminate stuff found within the house with their poisonous excreta and also cause major damage on walls & furniture through gnawing on them. Mice rarely come out in broad daylight due to their shy nature; and as such, it may be very difficult to spot them even if they’re in your house. But you may be able to notice them from their black droppings, uncharacteristic rodent smell and also fresh gnawing marks around the house. Typically, mice get killed by chemical compounds such as rat & rat that are readily sold at the marketplace. But these chemicals do contain very perilous chemicals, which may as well cause great harm to people since rats may distribute them around the house as they walk from on corner to another in search of food. Some people also use soft drinks as a permanent solution for this condition. Mice don’t have the capacity to burp up liquid and as such will get choked when they try drinking this sugary solution.

Another less considered but very effective way of ensuring mice are out of bay is just ensuring that the house is kept clean and all foods tucked away in safe places. Prevention is always better than cure even when it comes to keeping mice far from your residence. When foodstuff is not spilled aimlessly but tucked away safely in the locker, then chances of rats infesting your house would be drastically diminish.
