Racoons are very intelligent, bold and curious omnivorous mammals, with a clever ability to open closed containers and doors. They're night crawlers, and known for being cunning and destructive.

They normally destroy cornfields, pull off siding and tear openings to get into houses, hence the need to get rid of them.

Here are some tips to help you do just that:

First, deny them food and openings into your house. Restrict their access to birdfeeders, garbage cans, and entrances such as chimneys, which will eventually make the raccoon move to another area.

But, in case a raccoon has already taken up full-time residency in your house, maybe in your chimney, use a method called "exclusion" to get rid of it. This involves waiting until nightfall when raccoons are most active. When the racoon leaves to find food place a wire screen cover on the opening so the raccoon will have no way to get back in. And in case your garden is invaded, use fence wired with an electric to give them a mild shock every time they attempt to climb over the fence.

Send them packing with ammonia. Raccoons are naturally clean animals; they 'wash' their food before eating and continually keep their nests clean. They also don't like strong smells. Place a few Ammonia soaked rags near their nest and they should naturally go away.

Finally, once any of the above methods work for you, and you're sure the raccoons are out, promptly seal off all access to your home, while you repair every hole and opening with heavy wire cloth, steel flashing or solid wood.

If you're looking for bat exterminators, good luck. There are many professional services out there that will help with bat removal in humane ways, but very few, if any, services that will actually recommend or support killing bats as a solution to getting rid of them. Bats are wild animals, and the only reason that they come into people's homes is because their territory is being overtaken by urban sprawl and suburban living in previously wild areas. Thus, it is their nature to seek shelter where they can and when their habitat is destroyed, your home will look like a nice nest for any bat family.

Bat exterminators are not a good choice even if you do find them. There are many reasons that you shouldn't kill bats as a means of getting rid of them. First of all, it is illegal in many places to poison bats, so that is out of the question. Also, killing bats because they came into your home is counter-productive. After all, people are the ones taking over the bats' habitat, so they should expect to run into problems from time to time.

Another reason that you shouldn't kill bats or hire bat exterminators that will is because you can humanely return them to the wilderness without throwing off their entire ecosystem. You don't have to kill bats if you work with a professional service that can provide you with an effective bat exclusion process. Bats are actually good for the environment because they eat bugs and other small pests that can invade your homes and cause problems. Just let the bats live, and give them a humane exit from your home with professional bat removal services.

To find a bat removal professional that isn't among the few bat exterminators, you don't have to look very far. In the pest control industry, most of the professionals that deal with bats will suggest humane removal of bats from the home and deter you from harming or killing the bats if at all possible. Generally speaking, bats will have to leave your home to find food, and when they do, the bat control devices that professional removal specialists will install will keep them from coming back in when they want to return to their nest. Thus, you should find a bat removal specialist instead of bat exterminators to take care of your bat problems in a much nicer way.

Squirrels in Walls

When we think about the dangerous animals faced by our pioneer ancestors, what comes to mind? Probably we would imagine wolves, bears, panthers, and poisonous reptiles. Few would consider the lowly squirrel! But for the early Ohio settlers, the squirrel was the cause of famine and suffering.

As pioneers moved into the Valley of the Paint in southern Ohio in the early 1800s, they immediately began to radically change the area's landscape. Cabins had to be built, fireplaces stoked, and fields cleared for planting. As a result, the great oak, beech, chestnut, and black walnut trees were cut down far and wide. Trees not needed for building were rolled to the vast fires and destroyed.

These trees, especially the nut-bearing ones, were the habitat and food source for the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of squirrels in the area. In short order, the squirrels were desperate for food. They turned to the easiest and most abundant food source-the pioneers' crops.

The harsh winter of 1807-08 nearly eliminated squirrels as a species in the Valley, and the levy was allowed to expire. The pioneers continued to subdue the wilderness and open the land to agriculture. The days of the great forests blanketing Appalachian Ohio were coming to an end. In their place now stood row upon row of tall corn plants and waving wheat. Civilization was on the march.

Although most people would name wolves or rattlesnakes as the worst danger to early Ohio pioneers, it was the squirrel that caused the most suffering. Man's effect on the rodents' food source led to crop loss and famine. The county act that required the killing of the squirrels, along with the settlers' sharing with their neighbors in need, helped the new community make it through the long, cold winter to come.
