People do not normally spend much time thinking about their garbage. They put it out on the sidewalk, sometimes the night before, and think nothing of it again. That is, until they wake up the next morning to see garbage all over their lawn and the street. The culprit? Almost always, a raccoon. This, along with being hand-fed by well-meaning humans, results in the raccoon wanting to move from their forest homes in the trees closer to its food source--your house.
Raccoons normally find their way in through the attic, either through a hole or by chewing their way in. They are exceedingly dangerous to have in the house for various reasons. They are host to fleas, ticks, mites, and lice, which can easily jump to children or household pets. In addition, they are commonly infected by a roundworm parasite, the eggs of which are released in the raccoon's feces. If anyone, especially a child or animal, touches the feces or anything soiled by it, they run a high risk of being infected with roundworm and becoming a host themselves.
Besides parasites and roundworm, raccoons are known to carry canine distemper, rabies, coccidiosis (an intestinal disease), upper respiratory diseases, and mange (skin disease caused by parasitic mites). While it may be tempting to try to get rid of the raccoon yourself, it is safer to hire a professional trapper with the equipment and expertise to remove and relocate the raccoon. In the case of Nuisance Wildlife Relocation, we will, in addition to removing the animal, work with your insurance company to completely restore and clean up your attic and any other damages caused to your home, leaving it as if the raccoon was never there.

Choose Your Squirrel Control Methods
If you have previously had a problem with raccoons and squirrels, then you know what a menace varmints can be. The same is also true for bats, especially knowing the fact that bats are carriers of the rabies virus. Remember, it is illegal to use poisons to kill bats, so it will be better if you opt for bat traps. However, research has shown that bats have a tendency to return to their roosting place even if they are 150 miles away. Hence, traps may not be a permanent solution to prevent bats from making a home in your house. In such a case, it would be best to go for a permanent bat control measure which ensures that bats do not return to roost in your home.
If you are not comfortable adopting bat control measures, then you can even hire a professional, but be prepared to shell out a few thousands based on the size of your home, the equipment used, the time spent on fixing the holes and crevices and the material used to seal off the holes and openings. Also, before hiring the services of a professional, it is best to get an estimate.

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.
