Bats

The little brown bat and the big brown bat are the two most common species of bats. Bat's food source are bugs, and usually give birth to one baby bat in early June. Bats are great animals to have around just not in your attic. Bat's droppings are called (guano). This can be toxic if breathed in transferring a disease called (histoplasmosis). Bats are also known carriers of rabies. When bats enter your dwelling it can be a very unpleasant experience.

Birds

Birds can be a big nuisance. Birds get into stores, take up shelter in ventilation systems and leave lots of bird droppings behind. Birds also fall down chimney flues and nesting material can be a fire hazard. The English sparrow, starlings, pigeons and woodpeckers are the more common birds to cause a nuisance.

Raccoon

The raccoon known as the masked bandit is just that a bandit. Raccoons can grow as big as 40 lbs and are powerful enough to tip over garbage cans and force there way into an attic. Raccoons mate in February and mothers give birth to 3 to 7 babies in late April. Raccoons are a nocturnal animal moving at night and sleeping during the day. Raccoons love to raise young down chimney flues and in attics, and the damage and droppings they leave behind can be extreme.

Squirrels

Squirrels are always keeping busy. Squirrels are an animal that does not hibernate and are active all year round. Gray, red, and flying squirrels are the three types of squirrels that cause the most trouble. Flying squirrels being strictly nocturnal and the smallest of them all. Red and grey squirrel are usually what we get calls for. Squirrels mate in February and give birth to three to six squirrels as early as March. Attics and dwellings are a popular place for a squirrels to raise her young. They use existing holes to enter or chew there own. Usually gaining access to the roof from a mature tree.

Snakes

Snakes are the number one phobia for people in the world. Snakes slither and can be frightening when found in basements and yards. Although venomous snakes are rare in Wisconsin some do exist like the Timber Rattler. Snakes are usually categorized as being poisonous or nonpoisonous. Some signs of poisonous snakes are a pit between eyes and nose, a triangular head, and cat like pupils. A nonpoisonous snake has no pit, round pupils, and a narrow head. The most common Snakes in the Fox Valley are the common garter snake, and fox snake. If not certain or frightened in any way please do not harm and leave the removal to your local experts.

Feral Cats

Feral cats are cats that were tame once and have gone wild or they were born wild. Feral cats are extremely effective hunters and kill for the fun of it, especially birds eating only ten percent of what they kill. We remove feral cats for home owners who began feeding one and the problem grew to be several. We also remove feral cats for local police departments and local organizations. A feral cat population on your property will most likely not go away on its own but instead grow at a rapid pace. When this happens it usually is not a good thing for the cats. Parasites, mange, inbreeding, and starvation can occur. Its best to transport trapped feral cats to your local humane society. There they will examine the cat and decide what is best. Or call your local expert.

Woodchucks (Groundhogs)

The woodchuck or groundhogs is a four legged, low to the ground, digging machine who belongs to the rodent family. Woodchucks (groundhogs) are vegetarians, ground dwellers and true hibernators. Mating occurs in the spring, and after a gestation period of thirty-one days give birth to four to six young woodchucks (groundhogs). The incredible appetite for greens and there awesome ability to dig is what usually gets them into trouble. Woodchucks (Groundhogs) is a very common call thru out the summer months.

Rats and Mice

Rats and mice are rodents that usually live less that one year. They mate year round and can have five to ten litters per year at about five per litter. Rats and Mice contaminate food supplies, leave urine stains, odors, and noise in walls and ceilings. Anyone with these rodents should be concerned because of their need to chew, how fast they multiply, and ability to spread disease.

Opossums

The opossum is a grayish animal with a hairless tail, and are the only marsupial in North America. Opossums give birth to twelve or more babies in the late spring where they will live in there mothers pouch for the next few months. Opossum often live under decks and sheds in peoples back yards. There the opossum will raid bird feeders and pet food. When encountered opossums the ability to fake being dead. Although opossums are not true hibernators there activity slows in the dead of winter, and are a common nuisance animal call.

Skunks

Skunks are best known for there offensive smell and black with white stripe down the back. A full-grown healthy skunk is a very beautiful animal but gets a bad name from its odor and ability to dig. Skunks are also the number one disease carrying animal in North America including rabies. The good news is that sick skunks usually give sign that it is sick. Skunks are nocturnal but when sick will often appear during the day. And if acting not afraid of humans this usually means a sick animal. You should always avoid a skunk behaving this way and call an expert ASAP.

Moles

Moles are carnivores that destroy homeowner's lawns in search of grubs, insects, earthworm, and beetles. Moles create tunnels in landscaping and yards creating a big concern to the homeowner who takes pride in there lawn. Moles can dig at a rate of one foot per minute in search of their next meal. Making a huge mess in a short period of time.

Dead Animal Removal

Dead animal removal is definitely not my favorite job, but it is a service we offer. Often times animals like rabbits will die under decks causing a stink. We even get calls to pick up dead animals that decided to expire in a homeowners yard. When animals like bats and mice are living in an attic they will often times fall down a wall and not be able to get back out. When this happens they die and begin to smell up the room and even the whole house. The only option is to cut the wall, remove dead animal and apply odor control to eliminate smell. Not an easy job but someone has to do it.
