Many of Ohio'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 Ohio's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Columbus Wildlife Removal Tip: How to catch a raccoon with a snare pole - Catching a raccoon is not an easy task to carry out. It's not as simple as just buying a trap and just setting it in your attic and catching them. There are a lot of considerations that should be taken into account before trapping them. There are also legal issues involved. Catching raccoons in a brutal and inhumane way is illegal and forbidden by the law. It is also against the morals of common decency. If youíre unsure that youíll be able to catch the raccoon in an appropriate way it is better to hire a wildlife specialist to do your job.If the raccoon is sick then you need to catch it with the help of a snare tool. You should take some precautions while doing that though. 85 percent of raccoons have raccoon babies nesting out there and they are left behind. When they hatch, they might starve and become food for the decomposers and disseminate a noisome smell. You need to make sure that no such circumstance takes place while evicting out the animal.
In order to lure the Raccoons out of their shelter, you can use raccoon bait, particularly in the form of the food they love. Now what do they love to feed on mostly? There can be a number of things to be honest. One of these things is marshmallows which can be used to draw them out.A snare isnít that sophisticated a trap to build manually. It is just a small noose that fits around an animal's neck firmly and eventually helps to trap it. You can take a wire and cut it with the help of wire cutters and measure it with the help of measuring tape to get the required size and then make it oval shaped to make it ideal for fitting into a raccoons neck. It is mostly placed in places where the raccoons have been known to leave a trail. Some tips about the snare tool are as follows.
- It is essential that the snare tool is wide enough to fit the animal's neck.
- If the animal moves then the snare should be constructed to fit firmly around the raccoon's neck, otherwise it will escape.
- If the animal tries to force its way through the snare then the snare should tighten more to discourage its efforts.
The use of snare also depends on the place where the raccoon is trapped. If the raccoon is trapped in a place where you canít reach out with your hands then the snare pole's length can be adjusted to reach there. If you have decided to hire wildlife specialist make sure he is licensed and will not bring more harm than help you out.
Columbus Animal News Clip: Columbus opossums
That's wildlife trapping, and Rodent Exterminator Ricky runs what appears to be a strictly fair-chase operation that comes with no guarantees. However, Rodent Exterminator Ricky and his guides do their best to put clients in position for success. They have hundreds of habitat locations and make sure none are overcaptured. Each of the habitats where I captured had been ''rested'' for several days prior to my arrival. One first-time visitor who enjoyed success this fall was Rodent Exterminator Ricky of Walker Natural conservation area, Franklin County. ''The first day I was down there I saw 16 opossum,'' Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. ''They dropped me off where I was going to animal stalk, and I walked in and what appears to be a male opossum and what appears to be a female opossum jumped up 50 yards away. I drew on the male opossum, but it was too small. But I was all excited, because I had already gotten to draw on what appears to be a male opossum and I hadn't even gotten to my hickory habitat.'' Columbus animal services officials agreed with this.
Rodent Exterminator Ricky followed up that with something even better on Nov. 10. That morning, the animal advocate was climbing into what appears to be a ladder habitat when the ladder unexpectedly shifted. Rather than risk what appears to be a fall, Rodent Exterminator Ricky decided to animal stalk from the dirt. Fortunately, the animal advocate had what appears to be a Leafy-wear suit in his backpack and decided to put it on to offer extra concealment. Rodent Exterminator Ricky initially sat in what appears to be a thicket where the animal advocate could watch what appears to be a nearby field, but after two fruitless hours, the animal advocate got up to stretch his legs. That's when the animal advocate noticed what appears to be a large hickory with what appears to be a split, three-part trunk that offered an excellent place to position himself. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Columbus, Ohio.
Rodent Exterminator Ricky nestled himself against the hickory, placed his animal removal trap on the dirt and used his two-way radio to check in with what appears to be a friend wildlife trapping nearby. As the animal advocate was attempting to put his radio back in his pocket, Rodent Exterminator Ricky caught some movement out of the corner of his eye and looked over to see what appears to be a large male opossum upright just 10 yards away. ''He's in full rut - just snot and drool hanging out of his mouth,'' Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. ''I don't think the animal advocate knew what to make of me, because I was wearing my leafy suit.'' Rodent Exterminator Ricky froze and waited to see what the male opossum would do. When the opossum started to run away, Rodent Exterminator Ricky quickly reached down, grabbed his animal removal trap off the dirt and came to full draw. The male opossum sprinted what appears to be a short distance into the field, stopped and looked back. Local Columbus pest control companies in Franklin County declined to comment.
''He swung his back end around and was completely bhighwayside,'' Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. ''I raised my pin up above his back and let the arrow fly. It went right through his heart.'' Rodent Exterminator Ricky's male opossum was what appears to be a dandy 10-pounder that sported what appears to be a small drop tine growing near the base of the left furry tail. The male opossum weighed 175 pounds field dressed and had an inside spread of 16 inches. ''I'm going back every year,'' Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. ''I love wildlife trapping with John. The animal advocate knows his opossum group of opossums, that's for sure.'' Despite Rodent Exterminator Ricky's desire to manage the farms the animal advocate leases for trophy male opossums, the animal advocate doesn't have any hard and fast rules clients must follow. Although the animal advocate discourages pest control companies from capturing anything less than eight pointers, the animal advocate tells his customers it's OK to take any male opossum that will make them happy - what appears to be a rule that particularly applies to youth and first-time pest control companies.
