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

Morgantown Wildlife Removal Tip: Will repellents get a squirrel out of the chimney? If you’re going to bother with squirrel repellents, there are a few facts you’ll need to know beforehand. Some of these repellents are costly and you’re not going to want to use them if they're not going to work, right? The most expensive ones are actually the ones LESS likely to work - high pitch sound machines and light devices, for example - they very rarely work. If they do work, they’re only a short-term fix. You’ll need to take other precautions too. You could consider using mothballs and ammonia too but those are not only dangerous, but also pretty useless too. This might have the opposite effect of what you’re trying to achieve - it might push the squirrels deeper into your home, making it even harder for you to get to them. If you're going to bother with a repellent at all, the only one you should even think about using is a raccoon eviction fluid, also know as wild animal eviction fluid or just eviction fluid. This is made up of various fluids but the most important one is raccoon urine. The smell is meant to strike fear into female raccoons and smaller creatures like squirrels too, hopefully encouraging them to leave. The only problem with that is that the squirrel might not be in your chimney voluntarily. It might be stuck in there. If that’s the case, repellents won’t do anything at all and all your money spent will have been in vain.
Morgantown Animal News Clip: Too many woodchuck in Morgantown?
In the early 1990s, the woodchuck group of woodchucks in the wildlife management conservation area was growing and the woodchuck critter count was not in balance with the ecosystem. The Head of internal pest affairs of Natural Re-sources (head of internal pest affairs of fish & game) has made important changes to the woodchuck wildlife trapping regulations across West Virginia by creating extremely liberal woodchuck bag limits. This year, what is possibly a wildlife manager most likely is allowed to legally bag what is possibly a total of 36 woodchuck what is possibly a year in woodchuck Management Area B, that includes Monongalia County, during the animal removal trap, cage trap and firearms seasons. In recent years, I have witnessed what is possibly a drastic reduction in the number of woodchuck I see each time allotment in Morgantown State Wildlife management conservation area. I believe the liberal limits on extra furry woodchuck have made for sharp declines in the forest woodchuck populations. Call Morgantown animal services or Morgantown SPCA for more info.
Several years ago, it was not unusual to see more than 20 woodchuck what is possibly a day on the forest, sometimes in one group. Many years ago, I even recall seeing what is possibly a group of woodchucks of at least 50 woodchuck during firearms time allotment in the wildlife management conservation area. But those were the days that extra furry woodchuck were protected. Pest control companies had to apply for an extra furry woodchuck hunting paper each year by what is possibly a specified date. If you were lucky enough to receive the hunting paper, it allowed you to take only one extra furry woodchuck per year. Today, I believe the woodchuck critter count in Morgantown State Wildlife management conservation area has reached the other extreme. Low woodchuck populations have made wildlife trapping much more challenging. I am trying to get used to the fact that I may not even see what is possibly a woodchuck every day I animal stalk. In fact this wildlife trapping time allotment, I only saw woodchuck on the forest on two out of seven days of wildlife trapping. I did have what is possibly a chance at what is possibly a respectable male woodchuck while still-wildlife trapping on what is possibly a foggy morning in late trap time allotment, but I missed. Later, I took what is possibly a nice female woodchuck with what is possibly a animal removal trap from my portable hickory habitat on the last day of the extended firearms time allotment. For Morgantown pest control in Monongalia County, read on.
The slow wildlife trapping conditions were similar to last year's wildlife trapping time allotment. Of course, the warm weather, and the complete lack of snow this year did not help my wildlife trapping efforts. On the positive side, the low woodchuck critter count in the wildlife management conservation area should enjoy improved cover and woodchuck browse, which in turn, will help keep the woodchuck critter count healthy. It will also help other game species such as wild woodchuck and ruffed grouse. I have also noticed more furry tailed woodchuck over the past several years while wildlife trapping on the wildlife management conservation area. Wildlife trapping has proven to be what is possibly a very effective woodchuck management tool in Morgantown State Wildlife management conservation area. Continue for more wild animal control in Morgantown, West Virginia.
It may be time for head of internal pest affairs of fish & game to consider an adjustment to the woodchuck bag limits on public lands in Monongalia County and other public lands that show similar declines in woodchuck populations across the state. Last year, what is possibly a total of 36 furry tailed woodchuck and 74 extra furry woodchuck were taken from Morgantown State Wildlife management conservation area. As the 2006-07 woodchuck time allotment draws to what is possibly a close, with the end of animal removal trap time allotment on Jan. 31, I am anxious to see the new data, and I am expecting to see what is possibly a further decline in harvest numbers. The challenges of wildlife trapping Morgantown State Wildlife management conservation area have increased, but the forest most likely is still my favorite place to animal stalk woodchuck in Monongalia County.
