  • Skunk Poop - Scat

In areas with high native snake populations, snake-proof fences may be erected to keep the slithery pests away from children in play areas, though enclosing entire yards with snake-proof fencing often proves prohibitively expensive. The Mexican Free-Tail Bat Tadarida brasiliensis is common in the south. A large colony is not only noisy and unsettling at dusk and dawn as swarms of bats fly in and out, but the main problem is that they leave their droppings and urine behind. Some kill by venom, some by constriction. Snake removal is usually less expensive than the average wildlife control job. Some snakes may grow several feet in length, while others can be quite small, never reaching more than a few inches. The physical differences focus on features of the head. However, this is part of what separates the cottonmouth from other snakes that emit this toxin.

Damages can become extreme and require costly renovation and repairs if left alone for long periods of time. They mate in October, before winter hibernation, and after a delayed fertilization and a 60 day gestation, give birth to one or two baby bats in early June. Snakes also bask in the sunlight on warm days, since, as cold-blooded animals, they rely on external heat sources to regulate their body temperature. BAT BIOLOGY: North America is home to many species of bats, but these are the three most common nuisance (colonizing) species in the US: First is the Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus) which is common in most of the US, especially the more northward states. The virus usually attaches itself to the nervous system and works its way along to the brain. You should also ensure that all the accesses to your home have been properly sealed and remove food from their environment. The incubation period is highly variable in animals and people. These bats are small, with a wingspan of 8 inches, and a weight of less than half an ounce.

One of the major concerns is that, bats can transmit rabies to humans. Some snakes may grow several feet in length, while others can be quite small, never reaching more than a few inches. To help understand this, it is like burning a bridge as you are crossing it. Snakes are scaly, legless reptiles that slither across the ground and constantly taste the air by flicking out their forked tongues. That is the Cottonmouth. Contact the experienced wildlife professionals to take care of dangerous or problematic snakes, and never handle the heads of freshly killed venomous snakes, as they may still be able to inject venom through a bite reflex which lingers for a short period of time. Bats, being a protected species, must be handled by trained professionals like our team. Some are great climbers, some are aquatic.
