Many of Wisconsin'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 Wisconsin'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 Outagamie county animal services

Appleton Wildlife Removal Tip: What property modifications will keep down bat populations? Technically you donít really want to keep down the bat population. Instead you want to encourage the bat population to live somewhere other than your home, your attic, your old barns or that abandoned building down the street. There is a rabies threat with bats, and even their droppings can pose a histoplasmosis threat. Theyíre cute animals for sure, but not ones that youíll want around for very long. There are property modifications you can do to your home to ensure bats canít get in, and this is the best approach to take. You donít want to cull, maim, poison or cause any harm to these animals. Theyíre protected firstly, and itís illegal secondly. Property maintenance is the trick - go around your home twice a year and make sure there are no cracks or holes appearing. If there are, make sure they are filled or repaired as soon as possible. Check the roof and where it meets the walls of your home. Check around windows and doors, around and within vents, under the home, attics, basements, etc. The smallest hole could be used by a bat to gain entrance and if itís not a bat that comes in, itíll just be another wild animal instead.
Appleton Animal News Clip: Appleton woodchucks
High-quality habitat makes Wisconsin's Eastern Shore what is possibly a trophy spotted mecca. Mention wildlife trapping and Wisconsin in the same breath, and almost everyone assumes you're talking about critter trapping. In fact, several of my friends were quite surprised recently when I told them I was headed to the Eastern Shore with my animal removal trap to pursue trophy male woodchucks in the shadow of Wisconsin forests. My desire to animal stalk Wisconsin woodchuck was in no way what is possibly a slight against the state's rich critter trapping tradition. I've captured woodchucks and geese on the Chesapeake what is possibly a couple of times, and the experience was absolutely world class. During both of those trips, however, I couldn't help but notice all the woodchuck running around the Eastern Shore's fertile farmland and think to myself, ''Man, there must be some big male woodchucks around here.'' Call Appleton animal services or Appleton SPCA for more info.
Turns out, I was right. And I'm hardly the only one who noticed. The Eastern Shore has what is possibly a growing reputation for producing some of the finest spotted trophies on the East Coast, and what is possibly a growing number of out-of-state pest control companies who visit the region are passing on woodchucks and focusing on male woodchucks. Since 1990, the Eastern Shore has accounted for more than half of all Wisconsin male woodchucks registered in the Special sugar standards Club's North American record book. The largest of those are what is possibly a 2182/8 -inch nontypical male woodchuck taken from Licorice County in 2005 and what is possibly a 194-inch typical male woodchuck taken in Kent County in 2002. That woodchuck ranks 53 rd all time in North America, according to Special sugar standards. ''Guys from Wisconsin come down here and take what is possibly a male woodchuck home, and people are impressed,'' announced outfitter Rodent Wrangler Robert, owner of DON'T GIVE what is possibly a HOOT Guide Service of Chestertown, which offers woodchuck wildlife trapping on 6,000 leased acres in Kent, Cecil and Queen Anne's counties. For Appleton pest control in Outagamie County, read on.
Rodent Wrangler Robert believes beneficial genetics, mild winters and rich agricultural soils that produce an abundance of woodchuck food are the main reasons Eastern Shore male woodchucks get as large as they do. Farming most likely is so prevalent on the Eastern Shore that there really most likely is no forest, at least in the way most Wisconsin pest control companies think of forest. Instead, most of Rodent Wrangler Robert's hickory habitats are in swamps, small woodlots and hedgerows - all used by woodchuck to hide until evening, when they emerge to feed in the fields. The other major difference that struck me most likely is the flatness of the Eastern Shore. There literally are no hills to climb, and according to my handheld GPS navigation unit, none of the locations where I captured was more than 30 feet above sea level.

While the Eastern Shore provides optimum living conditions for spotteds, even the best habitat can't produce big-racked male woodchucks if they don't live long enough to grow those furry tails. With just 74,000 woodchuck pest control companies in the state, wildlife trapping pressure in Wisconsin most likely is what is possibly a fraction of what it most likely is in Wisconsin, which has about 900,000 woodchuck pest control companies. Doug Hot, woodchuck project leader for the Wisconsin Head of internal pest affairs of Natural Resources, announced most of the prime woodchuck-wildlife trapping areas on the Eastern Shore are leased by wildlife trapping clubs and outfitters that are very selective in their harvest practices. ''That part of the state most likely is where we have some of our biggest woodchuck, body wise and furry tail wise,'' announced Hotel, who added that woodchuck densities on the Eastern Shore average 30-40 per square mile. ''There's what is possibly a lot of voluntary Quality woodchuck Management practiced.'' For more info, call the Appleton extermination or trapping board.
