Diet: What Do Squirrels Eat?

Snake removal is usually less expensive than the average wildlife control job. The reptiles do not attack humans, and non-venomous bites do little more than produce a painful puncture wound. Snakes often mate in the spring. They seek out these areas for warm shelter and safe breeding. Mother raccoons will make their nests and birth their young, caring for them all winter long until spring brings more suitable weather. All snakes should be treated with respect and left alone regardless of venom. That said, if you ask what snake kills the most humans in the US, the answer is the Timber Rattlesnake, because it's encountered more frequently, and thus it kills more people. Contact a professional wildlife management technician for positive identification. Whether you are talking about the rattlesnake or the copperhead, many are extremely dangerous if they should bite you.

  • How to Clean Your Attic After You've Had Bats?

I've seen adults cowering up on chairs, shaking. Raccoons will use just about any space they can access for shelter inside or outside a home. However, bats in the north hibernate in colder weather. These reptiles live in the water and hide in the brush or in the water itself waiting for potential victims to arrive. And, in addition to those hazards, they often leave behind an offensive odor that can be difficult to remove. They can also carry fleas, ticks, lice, mites, and more that can spread through the home. Some are great climbers, some are aquatic. In fact, it is the most destructive and powerful cytotoxin of any snake on earth.

Characteristics of the nonvenomous snake are narrow head, no pit between eye and nostril and round pupils. Most venomous species in the U.S. are a type of pit viper, including copperheads and rattlesnakes. Snakes don't need much space to enter a home. Raccoons invade your yard or home in search of food. In addition to bat removal, we can handle repairs to your property and take preventative measures so you don’t have to worry about those pesky bats returning. If you have raccoons in your attic, the total cost will probably run between $350 - $500 to remove all the raccoons (plus young) and seal the entry holes shut. That said, if you ask what snake kills the most humans in the US, the answer is the Timber Rattlesnake, because it's encountered more frequently, and thus it kills more people. Once the raccoons are out of the chimney, you should install a strong steel chimney cap to discourage them from returning.
