Raccoons are one of the most common animals that wildlife controllers deal with. Raccoons will destroy soffits, tear off shingles, remove siding and chimney caps, and take off mushroom vent caps just to gain access into your home. Once inside they will destroy insulation and wires to modify the house to their liking. Raccoons are nocturnal and sleep during the day. If you see a raccoon active during the day, DO NOT approach it. Call Tri-County Wildlife ASAP!
Snakes can be very dangerous animals; do not provoke or attempt to handle any snake that you cannot properly identify as it may be venomous and can cause serious injury or even death. Snakes can become a nuisance in many different ways. Snakes found inside homes should not be harmed and may be there because of an unknown rodent problem. Tri-County Wildlife thoroughly inspects your home for possible rodent problems, as well as sealing any entry ways that the animal(s) used to enter your home.
Bats can be a noisy, unsanitary and scary problem to have in your home. They bring the risk of rabies, Histoplasmosis, Property Damage, and Bat Mites (often mistaken for bed bugs). In a commercial setting, you can add liability, loss of customers, and depreciation. Bats can be a legitimate health risk and should be handled by professionals. Tri-County Wildlife has 24/7 emergency animal control if a bat has entered your home.
Moles are expert burrowers, they live and feed primarily underground, so they are not seen very often above ground. The molehill, the mole’s signature trademark, is what makes this underground critter such a nuisance to homeowners.
Foxes and coyotes are major nuisances for homeowners. These animals will eat whatever they can find, including your garbage. Foxes and coyotes also dig up property. These animals can also carry diseases such as rabies.
Flying squirrels are a nuisance because they are colonizing animals. Colonies of flying squirrels may decide that your attic is the perfect environment for their home. Because they are nocturnal, you may hear them scurrying about at night. Many people hear the noise and mistake flying squirrels for rats, mice, or other types of squirrels. Flying squirrels chew, like all rodents, and can leave stains on your house at exit/entry sites.
Woodchucks, also known as groundhogs, can cause extensive damage to vegetable and flower gardens. A single woodchuck can reduce a garden to stubs in just a few days! Woodchucks also create vast burrows, which can cause small sheds, pools, or outbuildings to collapse.
Nocturnal by nature, skunks are well known for their strong odor. Skunks are known for spraying people, especially when confronted so it's best to stay away! An adult skunks can spray up to 15 feet and can spray both accurately and several times. They can also carry rabies without showing any outward signs of the disease.
Squirrels are a common nuisance situation any time of year. Because they are nocturnal, you may hear them scurrying about at night. Squirrels can leave behind a lot of droppings and urine in the attic. Squirrels occasionally damage lawns by burying or searching for and digging up nuts.
