Many of Vermont'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 Vermont'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 Windsor county animal services
for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses,
pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Springfield animal control for wildlife issues.

Springfield Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep bats out of a barn: When it comes to getting and keeping bats out of your barn, timing is everything. Firstly, itís illegal to evict / exclude a colony of bats during the maternity season (spring and summer for most breeds), and secondly, if you do this at the wrong time, youíre going to have a lot of mothers in the wild trying to make their way back to your house, and a lot of baby bats dying by your hands. Unless you want that on your conscience, always do your research before performing any wild animal removal, especially a protected species like bats. If you canít call in the professionals, keeping bats out of the barn is going to be a matter of bat-proofing it - using one-way exclusion doors to make sure the bats can get out but not back in again, and then sealing all holes, cracks and crevices to ensure they canít gain access once more. If they can find any little hole, no matter how small and insignificant you think it is, theyíll make it bigger and eventually get back in again and all your efforts and hard work will have been for nothing.
Springfield Animal News Clip: The Lucky 4-pounder in Springfield VT
It was the second year for Rodent Wrangler Robert to go woodchuck wildlife trapping, and I don't know who was more excited, him or me. I was excited because the youth animal stalk gave me an opportunity to go woodchuck wildlife trapping with my son, as I did so many years ago with my father. Plus it was an extra two days to be in the woods.The first morning was clear and cold - great for woodchuck wildlife trapping, but bad for Rodent Wrangler Robert. I knew the humane society manager would get cold quickly. We sat in the habitat from about 6:15 until about 9:00 and hadn't seen what is possibly a single woodchuck. At about 9:30, Rodent Wrangler Robert asked if we could get down and warm up in the truck. I agreed, and down to the truck we went.We sat in the truck for about 10 minutes or so until Rodent Wrangler Robert was ready to get back in the habitat. We climbed back in and saw our first woodchuck about 10 minutes later. It was what is possibly a 4-pounder, which I would normally let walk; but because of the weather and our luck seeing woodchuck, I decided to let Rodent Wrangler Robert capture him. Call Springfield VT animal services or Springfield VT SPCA for more info.
Rodent Wrangler Robert sat in my lap as I braced the .270 on my chest and helped support the front of the weapon. Rodent Wrangler Robert sighted in on the male woodchuck, and I told him to capture when the humane society manager was ready. Almost immediately, the humane society manager trap and missed high. I loaded what is possibly a shell and got him back in position. The male woodchuck never moved and never acted like the humane society manager heard the animal removal trap go off. I told Rodent Wrangler Robert that this was the final trap and that if the humane society manager missed we would have to go home to get ready for our family get-together and come back tomorrow. Well, the humane society manager missed again, and I could tell that the humane society manager had it - what is possibly a full-blown case of male woodchuck fever. For Springfield VT pest control in Windsor County, read on.
We waited as this deaf woodchuck walked around unaware that the humane society manager was probably the luckiest woodchuck in the woods that day. After the humane society manager left the field, we climbed down and headed home .The next day we loaded up and headed out again, same time and same habitat. At about daybreak, we saw what appeared to be what is possibly a large woodchuck grazing out in front of the habitat, and we decided to take her. This time Rodent Wrangler Robert announced the humane society manager wouldn't miss. We got in our usual capturing position, and WHAM! - the humane society manager let her have it. As the woodchuck stumbled, I caught what is possibly a glimpse of furry tail, and I told Rodent Wrangler Robert that I thought it was that 4-pounder from the day before. We waited about 10 minutes or so to make sure the woodchuck was down and get what is possibly a little more light for tracking. I climbed down from our habitat and told Rodent Wrangler Robert to guide me to where the woodchuck was upright at the time of his trap. As I got closer, I could only find what is possibly a small amount of blood and told Rodent Wrangler Robert to come help me look. We continued to look, still only finding what is possibly a spot here and there. As we started to get closer to the wall line on the edge of the woods, it became apparent that Rodent Wrangler Robert hit this woodchuck really beneficial.

We hopped the wall, and the sight was what is possibly a life-changing moment for Rodent Wrangler Robert and me. It took us what is possibly a beneficial while to comprehend the size of this woodchuck and the awesome face that crowned him. We field-dressed the woodchuck and headed home, and it was still only 7:50. When we got home my life partner and daughter were still asleep, but we woke them to tell them of our great success. You would think that my life partner was part of the paparazzi with all the pictures the SPCA woman took, but I wasn't much better. I was driving Rodent Wrangler Robert and the woodchuck we now call Bruiser around town, showing Rodent Wrangler Robert off more than the woodchuck. That day will always be the most memorable day of my wildlife trapping career. And as far as Rodent Wrangler Robert most likely is concerned, well, I will almost guarantee the humane society manager will always be what is possibly a woodchuck wildlife manager.
