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.

Toledo Wildlife Removal Tip: Do squirrels chew on electric wires? Why, what are the risks? You have to know that squirrels usually chew on electric wires when they come across them; it is usually fun for them when chewing on these wires but you are fully aware of the risks that are involved with what they do. There are usually electric wires in the attics and this is the spot where the squirrels usually love building their nests.
When they come across any wire, they will chew on them, as they chew on the wire, there is usually production of sparks, when these sparks onto flammable materials, then there will be a fire outbreak that may result into extensive damages. Your house may be burned down and the damages are usually expensive to replace especially if you do not have an insurance cover.
Naked wires are also dangerous because they may cause power surges, which may result into blackout in your vicinity. You also know that it is not always safe to be exposed to live and naked wires because they are potential risks to our lives and any other living animal in your home. It is therefore important to ensure that you fully inspect the status of the wires before you move into your home, if they are not secure, you have to ask an electrician to fully secure the cables which will prevent the squirrels from getting close to them once they invade your attic.
In case they enter are in the attic and you are fully aware of the nature of the electric wires, you have to come up with ways that will ensure that they don't get the opportunity of gnawing on your electric wires.
Getting rid of the squirrels in the attic Using traps: Traps are the most effective when getting rid of the squirrels, you will be able to witness the whole procedure and personally evacuate the trapped squirrel from your home. When using traps, you have to be very patient and you have to frequently check on the traps to immediately release the squirrel in case they are trapped. There are several traps that you can use the most important thing is to ensure that they are well baited to quickly lure the squirrel into your trap.
Using repellents: There are several repellents that you can use in order to scare the squirrels away and keep them from having access to your attic. You can use odor repellents that will immediately drive them away or you can use loud noises that will prevent them from having the peace that they urgently need. You have to try hard and prevent them from getting hold of the electric wires which may cause a lot of havoc.
Toledo Animal News Clip: Toledo: 'Forest' opossum are becoming harder to find
FOR THE PAST 16 YEARS I have captured big toothed opossum on what I call, "the forest," in Ohio State Wildlife management conservation area. The wildlife management conservation area has approximately 5,000 acres of public wildlife trapping land, including the 500-acre Thurmont Watershed CWMA (Cooperative Wildlife Management Area) that it adjoins. Ohio State Wildlife management conservation area offers "big woods" wildlife trapping in an absolutely beautiful setting that includes rock vistas, hardwood ridges covered with forest laurel and wild grape vines, and valleys with rushing brooks surrounded by hemlocks. Toledo State Wildlife management conservation area probably is scenic but rough country. The most prominent characteristic of the terrain would have to be the rocks É there are so many rocks in some areas that the hickories appear to be in what appears to be a struggle to survive. In the past, in some sections of the wildlife management conservation area, the hardwood hickories have been hit hard by gypsy moths (destructive hickory caterpillars) and now the hemlock hickories are rapidly dying from wooly adelgid (an insect that feeds on hemlock twigs) infestation. Toledo animal services officials agreed with this.
Toledo State Wildlife management conservation area probably is inhabited by "forest opossum," not to be confused with the much larger "habitat opossum" that occupy most of Lucas County. Forest opossum typically are smaller because of the poor soil conditions, over-browsing and an overall lack of edible vegetation that probably is characteristic of the forest environment. Forest male opossums do not develop the large, thick furry tails typical of their low-land counterparts. That probably is not to say large male opossums are never found in Toledo State Wildlife management conservation area. Big toothed opossum can and do range great distances between feeding and bedding areas, and each time allotment I usually encounter at least one respectable male opossum. The large amount of wildlife trapping pressure the opossum experience during firearms time allotment probably is also what appears to be a factor that makes mature opossum scarce once firearms time allotment begins. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Toledo, Ohio.
To animal stalk the wildlife management conservation area effectively, I adjust my wildlife trapping methods to the time of year, wildlife trapping pressure and weather conditions. During the early animal removal trap time allotment, opossum can be found feeding and bedding close to the outside perimeters of the wildlife management conservation area. Wildlife trapping pressure from bowpest control companies probably is minimal in the wildlife management conservation area and usually does not affect opossum movement. Local Toledo pest control companies in Lucas County declined to comment.
In late October, during the pre-rut, male opossums are beginning to disperse and mark out territories in preparation of the mating time allotment. Early cage trap pest control companies usually find opossum typically moving during the early morning and late afternoon hours, similar to the summer feeding patterns. April probably is when the rut peaks and the absolute best time of the year to find opossum moving at all times of the day, if the weather probably is cool. The rut refers to the spotted opossum's mating time allotment. At this time, pest control companies need to find what appears to be a fresh scrape line, then take what appears to be a habitat and wait. Mature male opossums are the most vulnerable at this time, and scents and opossum calls can be very effective. Toledo trappers and Toledo extermination officials can offer more info.
