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.

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 Wood 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 Parkersburg animal control for wildlife issues.

Parkersburg Wildlife Removal Tip: About opossums: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior: Believe it or not, there are said to be over sixty different species of the humble opossum, also known as just 'possum' to some. They are a marsupial, just like a kangaroo, and they are the only animal you'll find in Canada or the USA that carries their young in a pouch. The babies are about the size of a honey bee when they are born, meaning they'll need some serious protection, and after they're born, just like a kangaroo, the young will crawl into the pouch until they are large enough to watch and hen follow their mother hunt for food. The opossum can have up to twenty babies at once but it is thought that less than half of these survive, many of them dying before they've even made their way to the pouch at all. Scavengers just like raccoons and rats, the opossum will eat pretty much anything in its path, nuts, fruits and insects being tasty treats. Chickens are on the menu if they're was to get to, as are worms, birds and mice. As much as you'd love to leave these critters to work their magic on your mice problem, you'll find their tipping-over of your garbage can a pain in the backside before long - the steady food source is often what encourages them to leave their natural wooded areas into more urban environments. In the wild they'd spend the majority of their time in the trees, safely protected from the predators below. Their sharp claws make easy work of bark, so remember that next time to put off trimming that tree in your back yard!

Parkersburg Animal News Clip: How to poison mice - Mice can be very disturbing. They destroy our properties and expose us to diseases. One should get rid of the mice as soon as possible. They reproduce very fast and within a short time, the house can be full of them. In a few weeks, you will be shocked at that every corner of the hours is filled with mice. One has to act fast. There are many ways of getting rid of mice but some of them are not as effective. One of the best ways to kill them is to use poison. Even though most people try to avoid it, it is the only effective way to kill them. One has to be very careful when handling the poison though. There are some brands that are approved to be used in the home. If there are young kids, extra caution is needed. One should only buy products that have been approved to be used in a domestic setting. Here are some ideas on how to do this:

1. One should ensure that all food stuffs are removed out. Foods should be well covered. It is very dangerous to use the poison in the kitchen yet this is the place that mice might be visiting frequently. You have to make sure that the mice cannot access other foods or water to drink. The food containers have to be tightly closed. Food bits should be wiped off the tables. It is a good idea to ensure that the cupboards are locked as well.

2. You should place the bit in hidden places where the mice walk. It can be in the corners or even behind the couches. One should be careful not expose the baits to the young kids. If possible, you should poison a food bit that is loved by the mice. This includes maize and bread. You should avoid placing bait in places where the kids play. For one, the mice cannot go to a busy room where there are kids shouting and laughing; and secondly, kids might be tempted to eat the bread pieces. If need be, lock your pet as well.

3. You should follow the instructions that are given by the manufacturer. This depends on the type of the poison. There are poisons that work very slowly. The mice eat the bit and die elsewhere. This means that one has to search for the carcasses all over the house. It does not feel good to imagine that you are killing a living creature. However, in most cases, it can also cause infections in the household. The poison inhibits the production of vitamin K in the body of the mouse. With time, the animal will develop internal bleeding and die eventually. The disadvantage of using poison is the fact that the mouse might dies in a place where you cannot reach out for it. You have to live with the odor till it decomposes completely.
