If you've watched videos of people playing with squirrels on our site or YouTube, you understandably might now be thinking, "Hey, that looks like fun! Where can I buy a squirrel?" This article will explain how you can get all the cuddly squirrels you want for free.

First, before you jump in to getting your own squirrel, it's important to learn some basic facts.

Baby squirrels are remarkably willing to be raised by humans. It's amazing. For the first six months of their life, if you give them good care and love, they will happily accept you as their mama. They are enthusiastic fun loving little creatures, and you can experience many hours of joy with young squirrels.

As the babies come to maturity, the situation changes. Adult squirrels are like adult humans. They want to go off in to the world, live the life a million years of evolution have designed them to live, revel in their freedom, and engage in, um, baby making activities.

If an adult squirrel is denied the life they were designed to live, they become less cuddly, anxious, and maybe even a bit ornery. All the energy they would normally use in a natural life outdoors now gets applied to chewing on your furniture, electric cords, and maybe your fingers. Adult squirrels can not be house trained either.

If you take this approach, you'll find the vast majority of wildlife rehabbers will welcome you with open arms, and help you have the experience you want to have.

You don't have to dive in to raising baby squirrels until you're ready. As example, you might volunteer to baby sit baby squirrels for a few days when the rehabbers go out of town. You might volunteer to assist the rehabbers with their squirrels.

Once you're ready to have your own baby squirrels, you will have to spend some money on supplies. It's not real expensive, but especially the first time, you need to stock up on formula, syringes, nipples, cages and so on.

So, you've learned that baby squirrels make great pets, and adult squirrels do not. You've also learned that, if you do it right, you'll never have to buy a baby squirrel.

Want to know more about the ABC's of what this area under discussion has to propose to every human being who is willing to do things for themselves? During an inspection of the structure needing bat eviction I can determine the size of the colony and the best time of the year to remove the bats. During certain times of the year bats form nursery colonies. Depending on your geographical area the bats can only be removed when the young bats are able to fly. We like to use a one-way door or referred to as a valve.

These unidirectional escapes lets the bats escape not allowing the bats back in. This type of bat control eviction is approved by the organization Bat Conservation International. The utmost critical thing in bat removal from a residence is attention to all the little construction gaps. When closing all construction gaps, anything larger than an a quarter inch should be sealed. You have to seal the entire home to foil bats from getting back in. You will go as far as sealing any fault or construction crack. Ill need to exclude vents to keep bats out, let's start by closing off louver vents, attic vents, and ridge vents if bats can breach them using 1/4 inch screen. These can be painted to match, but I have found it blends in nicely left unpainted.

Inspect chimneys, bricks and mortar may be loose forming gaps. Look for gaps around where the chimney goes through soffit, carefully seal gaps and install a one-way door, if a bat way in is there. Ridge venting systems are feasible bat entrances. When looking at the ridge vent closely you'll usually find the plastic ridge vents deform leaving gaps, I've seen where varmints have chewed a gap in the vent. I will do away with the previous roof vent system and replace it. Primarily, you lay down 1/4 inch hardware cloth this keeps the bats, mice and squirrels from getting through. We will install a one-way bat door here also if the bats were using this area. Finally you'll finish the attic vent with a vent system referred to as Cobra vent, and then finish it with top cap shingles. We try to color match any calking, tin work and exclusion work to make it merge in as if we have not had to fix the construction defects. We use paintable caulking, the silicon based calks will tinge over time.

I build my own one-way doors. After ten years of bat control, I came up with an easy effective one-way valve for bat removal. You can purchase commercially produced bat cones but I personally think they are too short and have no airflow at the base where it is attached to the structure. These one-way doors are left on for about two weeks, to let bats leave. Then I can remove the one-way door and then block the entrance. After the bats have exited through the one-way doors the bats will try for several nights to get back in, by looking for another entrance, this is why sealing every possible entrance needs to be done. This is how to evict bats.Find out more by reading our other articles on this topic and other subjects we have written related to it.

Beaver is primarily a nocturnal and semi-aquatic rodent. It belongs to the genus Castor and is presently represented by two species commonly known as the North American Beaver and the European Beaver. They are known for building dams, canals and lodges. They are the second largest rodents known all over the world. They live in colonies and make dams which are deep in water and protect them from the predators. The population of the North American beaver has declined rapidly because of excessive hunting. They are killed for fur and the glands are used as a source of medicine and perfumes. They are known for their natural trait of making dams in the ponds in which they live. They have very sharp and powerful front teeth which are used for cutting trees for building their homes as well as for feeding. They are known for their alarm signals. When frightened the beaver dives rapidly and slaps water with its broad tail. This sound is audible from large distances both above and below water. This behaviour acts as a warning signal for other beaver present inside water. Once warned by the alarm call the other beavers dive into water and do not reemerge for some time. They walk slowly on land but are effective swimmers and can remain under water for about 15 minutes.

Both the species are not genetically compatible. North American beavers have 40 chromosomes while the European beavers possess 48 chromosomes. North American beavers are also known as Canadian beavers. They feed on water lily. Beavers are common hosts of Giardia lamblia which causes giardiasis. The beaver testicles and castoreum, a bitter secretion present in the castor glands of male or female beaver is used commercially for making medicine. Castoreum is also used in perfume preparation. They are national animals of Canada. They have entered the category of endangered because of habitat destruction and mass killing.
