How Do You Find the Areas Where Bats Are Getting In?
You go out to get into your car and see all your carefully planted bulbs knocked out of the ground or missing. Half dollar sized holes are all through your carefully prepared and planted flower beds. You lawn looks like an army of bad golfers came through during the night, leaving scores of divots all over the place. What could do so much damage?
This is the way most people discover they have an armadillo living near them. Armadillos are those tank like animals you see by the side of the road after they have lost an argument with a vehicle. As their range has increased and they have moved further north, more and more people are having disagreements with armadillos.
Armadillos have evolved to be digging machines. They have large front claws and dig burrows as well as dig for food. The armadillo has poor eyesight but can smell an insect a long way off. They are 8-17 pounds, about the size of an opossum. Armadillos produce one litter a year consisting of four babies of the same sex. They are born in a nest in the burrow.
When you trap the armadillo, do not touch it. Armadillos carry leprosy and it is illegal, at least in Texas, to keep a live armadillo for that reason. It is also illegal to release an armadillo on someone else's property without written permission. That leaves lethal disposal. Most pest control companies will come out for a fee and collect the armadillo so you do not have to do this yourself.
Armadillos have been around since the age of the dinosaurs. They were the size of Volkswagens then. It is far better to coexist with a little effort to exclude the armadillo from flower beds, garden beds, and other places they dig than to kill them. Remember, they were here first.

How Much is a Bat Exclusion?
Raccoons can be a real nuisance when it comes to our garbage. Here is a common scenario: You walk outside in the morning to throw out last night's garbage, only to find a huge mess of trash and debris spread all across your driveway and lawn.
If this sounds familiar, then you certainly have a wild animal problem, and it is most likely raccoons. Raccoons are highly intelligent and ambitious mammals with dexterous paws. These traits makes it easy for raccoons to access our properties and generate a long list of possible damages.
A big-time attraction for all raccoons is food, so trash cans are common targets. If you know raccoons are a problem in your neighborhood, it is wise to take certain preventative measures to keep raccoons away from trash cans, as well as, all other areas of your property. Continue reading to learn how to do just that and more.
Raccoons are Very Clever
Raccoons have truly incredible memories. Once they know your home is a source for food, they will continue to revisit, night after night, until you make it too challenging for them to raid your property. Fortunately, there are simple ways of thwarting raccoons on your own by using practical methods, changing old habits, and outsourcing professional service (if need be). Here are some tips for keeping raccoons away from your garbage, as well as the rest of your property:
Remove All Water Sources - Raccoons are not just hunting for food on your property, they are also looking for water. By eliminating all water sources on your property, you lessen the amount of potential targets for raccoons. This includes pet dishes, bird baths, standing puddles, and more. While you are at it, remove all other potential food sources as well, including pet food, bird feeders, and squirrel feeders.
Professional Raccoon Control - If you can seem to manage your raccoon problem with these methods, it is helpful to outsource professional raccoon control services. Licensed contractors retain the proper permits, equipment, and resources to exclude and extract raccoons, safely and humanely.

Squirrel Noises In An Attic
These fluffy quirky creatures that dart around up and down trees are definitely fun to watch. It is a different story when they make their way in ones attic and take up residence in the roof or attic. All of a sudden they cause problems and worry and they are no longer so lovable. The solution should never be hurting these animals. There are effective humane solutions controllers often exterminate but removing them and releasing them in the wild is a more humane solution when squirrel removal from attic should be considered.
People become aware of these uninvited guests by the scratching and scrabbling noises. Squirrels are mostly active during daylight hours and seldom heard at night. Most other co-dwellers such as mice and bats are more active at night. Regardless though, if you have a family of squirrels living in your space then chances are that they will make a lot more noise.
Traps, if the correct type, work effectively. Mostly when squirrels take up residence it is a mother with her litter. By catching the mother one leaves the litter at risk and they will surely die and cause bad odours. Live trapping using traps over their entry hole is by far the most humane option. Most favoured baits when one is trying to do animal removal/squirrels from attic include peanuts, peanut butter or bits of fruit.
