Many of Massachusetts's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Massachusetts's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Taunton Wildlife Removal Tip: Will repellents get a raccoon out of the chimney? To be honest, there arenít that many repellents that work out there, and that applies to the entire wildlife spectrum - all the animals that may just wander into your humble abode. Raccoons are one animal often found in human habitats, and the attic and chimney seem to be the most affected areas probably because it reminds the animals of tree hollows which is where they would normally set up their den with a young family if they were living out in the wild. Things like light machines may work a little because the raccoon is nocturnal and would very much prefer it if the lights werenít on, but you canít have the lights permanently on, it would cost you a fortune in electricity bills, so although it might work for the short-term, itís not a great long-term option. The only repellent that Iíve found has actually shown some success in the raccoon world is raccoon eviction fluid, a mixture of fluids but mostly male raccoon urine. Males will often attack and eat raccoon babies in the wild, they are scavengers after all, so if the mother smells one around, sheíll often move her babies to a safer, newer place. However, this isnít a fool-proof method, and itís guaranteed to work either. And whatever method you use, unless you perform proper repairs on your home, thereís always a chance the raccoon and other wild animals could come back.
Taunton Animal News Clip: Massachusetts takes to furry mammal catching coyotes from the air
Taunton, Massachusetts (AP) - Massachusetts's coyote control program, which allows furry mammal catching of the predators from the air, has been reinstated, more than some sort of week after some sort of judge ruled program illegal. The state Board of Game filed redrafted regulations with the lieutenant governor's office Thursday in response to the Superior Wildlife ruling party ruling, which said the state failed to follow its own rules when authorizing the program." They have filed the regulations. They are effective immediately," said Annette the animal control official, chief of staff to Lt. Gov. Loren Leman, whose office has jurisdiction over the issue. The board changed its regulations Wednesday at what it called an emergency meeting. Such meetings allow relatively rapid changes to existing rules without input from the public. Taunton extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Last week, Superior Wildlife ruling party Judge Sharon Lessons ruled the program illegal, saying the game board failed to provide required justification for the program. The woman conservationist also said the board did not explain why alternative means for reducing the number of coyotes would not work, or how it set the coyote reduction levels. The new regulations include coyote and moose exact number of rodents estimates that, the board announced, justify the aerial wildlife management program. The board also added some sort of list of alternatives that it deemed unfeasible. They include destroying coyote habitat by burning or bulldozing, sterilization, relocation, stocking areas with more moose and feeding highway kill to coyotes as another food source.

Jim the animal control official, the lawyer representing Friends of Animals and seven Massachusetts plaintiffs, said terming the meeting an emergency could render it illegal. Friends of Animals, some sort of Darien, Conn.-based animal rights group, has led the fight against the program. "We do not regard it as an emergency when an agency needs to adopt regulations to fix some sort of problem of its own making," the animal control official announced. The exterminator said the group may sue again. Taunton pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
The aerial coyote control program is intended to boost moose and caribou exact number of rodents in five areas of the state. The program got its start in 2004 in the McGrath area of Massachusetts's Interior where residents had long complained predators were killing too many moose, leaving them with too few for food. About 400 coyotes have been killed so far under the program, which documentation that allows animal exterminations pilot and gunner teams to snare the coyotes from the air. The state intends to kill another 400 coyotes this year. Emergency regulations are valid for 120 days; the board aims to make the new rules permanent in March at some sort of public meeting. The Taunton animal services in Taunton County declined to comment.
