Squirrels exist in nearly every habitat on Earth.
There are 285 species scattered across the globe, ranging from the half-ounce pygmy tree squirrels of western Africa to the nearly 20-pound (9-kilogram) gray marmots of Kazakhstan.
You’d basically have to venture to the planet’s Poles to escape them. For more info check out our page on Squirrels.
House Mice: Mice are small, and oftentimes people don't hear them, but at night when everything is quiet, you may hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet above your ceiling. The House Mouse loves to live in a ...house, and the walls and attic are safe places. At night, they may venture out into the kitchen in search of food, or go outside for food and water, then back into the house before dawn.
Roof Rats: Rats are commensal with people - they live in urban areas, and often thrive on our food and shelter. They seek out the warmth and safety of houses and other buildings, and commonly take refuge in walls or attics. If you hear scratching and running in the middle of the night, it's probably rats.
Squirrels: Squirrels are probably the most common animal in attics. These arboreal rodents usually live in trees, but many find that the attics of homes are drier, warmer, and safer than any tree - in particular, female squirrels with young will give birth to and raise the litter in an attic. If you hear the scratching and running noises in the daytime, particularly morning and early evening, it's probably squirrels.
Raccoons: Raccoons frequently break into attics in search of safe shelter. As with the squirrels, it's often a female raccoon who is looking for a safe place in which to raise a litter of young. Raccoons are very strong, and can rip open the roof or soffit in order to get in. If you hear heavy walking noises in your attic, it's probably raccoons. If you hear chattering or the squealing of young, it's probably a litter of baby raccoons.
Opossums: These opportunistic marsupials often live in human structures, under sheds and houses, and they also often live in attics. Just as with the other animals, a female with young is most likely to choose to live in the attic. Possums, equipped with their opposable thumbs, are great climbers, and can easily get onto the roof to their entry point. Possums do not live in attics as frequently as these other animals, but it does happen from time to time.
Other Animals: Stray cats will sometimes live in an attic as well. Bats are very common, but people don't often notice them until the colony becomes very large and vocal, or until the odor becomes overwhelming. Birds also live in attics from time to time. Whatever the animal is, a wildlife professional can easily determine the species - if it's not spotted outright, there's plenty of evidence left behind! - Trails, footprints, droppings, chewmarks, and more.
There are a few commercial chemical repellents available to repel various forms of wildlife, but none have been effective for raccoons. Mothballs, blood meal, and a wide variety of other home remedies have been tried, also to no avail as raccoons are quick to adapt.Other Control Methods:
Dogs kept outdoors may alert you to the presence of raccoons and may frighten some away; however, some raccoons will attack dogs and cause serious injuries. Since they are usually active at night when they are most difficult to see, shooting is rarely the solution to nuisance raccoons, even in rural areas where shooting is legal. For the average homeowner, unfamiliar with trapping raccoons, it is advisable to hire a professional wildlife control operator to remove the animal. The professional will have the proper equipment to accomplish the task and will be able to tell if a trapped female is nursing its young. This is very important because you don’t want to leave young behind to starve. The professional will also have the means to euthanize the animals, since releasing them elsewhere is prohibited by law. Released animals may return or present a problem to someone else and, in fact, the animal you have trapped may have been deliberately released near you. Release of animals is a major factor in the dissemination of numerous diseases to other animals.
Traditionally, raccoons prefer heavily wooded areas with access to trees, water and abundant vegetation. There, they make their dens in the hollow parts of trees and abandoned burrows, traveling up to 18 miles to forage for food.
Raccoons are extremely adaptable. They are often found in suburban and urban areas, making their homes in man-made structures like attics, sewers, barns and sheds. In urban areas, raccoons tend to stay closer to their dens with a range of only about 1 mile, depending on the raccoon's age and sex. For more info check out our page on Raccoons.
Only U.S. Species: Nine-banded armadillo (Dasypusn ovemcintus)
Average Size: 25 - 48" long (including the tail); 8-18 lbs.
Average Lifespan in the Wild: 7 - 10 years
Identifying Features: greyish-brown oval-shaped body with a long, tapering tail; long head with a pointy snout and small black eyes on either side; hard, armor-like shell (carapace) with 7-11 distinct band-shaped breaks around the center; four short legs with long claws designed for digging.
Armadillos have the ability to carry the bacterium that causes leprosy in humans (Mycobacterium leprae). However the risk of contracting leprosy from an armadillo is extremely low. Scientists believe that in order to contract leprosy from an armadillo, one must handle armadillos frequently and/or consume armadillo meat. For more info check out our page about Armadillos.
Are bees dangerous?
While Africanized bees have been largely over-hyped by media, these bees and European bees can be dangerous. Recently we’ve been involved with a greater amount of feral bee activity than normal. During this time, we performed bee removal on a shed where two lambs were living and were attacked by the honeybees living in the wall, one made it and the other didn’t. Later that day, we performed a bee removal on a gas station lamp post. The pole was bumped by a car backing up and the bees swarmed out and into the woman’s car window, stinging her and others nearby. A week later we preformed bee removal from a tree where a man while trimming his hedge, was attacked by bees and stung 20 times before making it from his yard to his house.
Last week I performed a bee removal from an owl box where a horse was attacked by the bees which in the past hadn’t shown any signs of aggressive behavior. Yesterday we performed bee removal for a man whose son and dog were attacked while playing basketball in the front yard. His son was fine, but the dog didn’t do as well. The normal kill ratio for a human being is 10 stings per pound; so about 1,800 stings would typically kill someone weighing 180 lbs. A typical bee hive has on average 10,000 to 40,000 bees.
The honey bee:
tends to be non-aggressive unless bothered. The honey bee is the only bee species that dies after stinging someone. The honey bee has a barbed stinger which actually pulls away from their stomach along with a poison sac after stinging. The reason that the honey bee dies after it stings is because of the abdomen rupture from when the poison sac was pulled free from their abdomen. So if you think that after you have been stung once by a bumble bee, the bee is going to die, you are wrong.
Hornet’s are a type of bee:
They are aggressive when they go about their stinging and they sting in full-flight mode, which adds a whole lot more pain to their sting. You will definitely need to watch out for the hornet if you are messing around with bees, this is one bee that you do not want to get stung by.
One of the coolest things about bees is the fact that they produce some food humans like. Honey is a product made of the nectar that has been regurgitated and then dehydrated by honey bees. And yes, it is true that the bees do eat their own honey, in fact, one teaspoon of honey actually contains enough energy for a single bee to fly around the world! Honey is completely organic and it contains every single nutrient that a human needs to survive, including the water content. So it might do you some good to keep a jar of honey in your house or even in your car incase you might need it in an emergency.
While most bees prefer to be in a colony, it is not true that every type of bee needs to be in a colony. In fact, there are many bees that change their housing structures all of the time and they do not have a colony at all. Of course, these are the bees that you do not usually hear a lot about, though they are also interesting. Carpenter bees are one of the bees that do not need a colony and make individual holes to live in. For more info check out our page about Bees.
