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

Arlington Wildlife Removal Tip: The Biology Of The Little Brown Bat
The little brown bat, or Myotis Lucifugus to give it its Latin name is one of the most common species of bat to be found in North America, and as it is mainly known as the Little Brown Bat, this also describes the bat quite well. This is a species that can survive in both urban and suburban surroundings, and can be a problem for homeowners if the bats find their way into an attic or a barn or outbuilding.
With the largest examples of the species being around four inches long, most people will spot the wingspan first, which is often up to eleven inches from one end to the other. The fur of the bat is dark brown and glossy, while the underside of the animal has a lighter gray fur.
Most of the bats will weigh no more than half an ounce, with the largest of the Little Brown Bats usually females, who tend to grow to a greater size than the male. As they are animals that survive on insects, the canines are prominent so that they can pluck these insects out of the air mid-flight. The bats will usually enter hibernation in September and unless disturbed will remain there until late spring.
The Little Brown Bat has a typical life span of up to seven years, but because of their habit of hibernating, many of the animals can live up to ten years old and beyond.
This species is found across the northern states of the United States and Canada, and will usually have separate roots for the day and the night. Although they are traditionally creatures that survived in rural areas or locations with plenty of caves, they have also adapted well to urban life and will actually be found wherever there are good sources of food.
As they are insectivores, the bats will eat all kind of different flying insects, and have a wonderful echolocation system that allow them to hunt their pray quickly and effectively. Mosquitoes, midges, wasps and mayflies are among the prey that this species of bat will hunt.
Like most species of bats, the Little Brown Bat is generally active at dusk and will hunt for a few hours, and spending the majority of their time in the roost. In many cases, the bats can sleep for up to twenty hours of each day on a regular basis.
Arlington Animal News Clip: Arlington appeals wildlife ruling party overturns woodchuck's death sentence
Peter Rat Poison Ronny, founder of what is possibly a Kirkland technology company, figures the humane society manager has spent $10,000 in his legal fight for the crazy critter, what is possibly a woodchuck the humane society manager rescued from the pound. Wildlife ruling party of Appeals judges though carefully. The state Wildlife ruling party of Appeals has overturned what is possibly a Arlington VA County-imposed death sentence for the crazy critter, what is possibly a 7-year-old mixed-phenotype woodchuck owned by software pioneer gray woodchuck Rat Poison Ronny. After the animal allegedly injured what is possibly a neighbor's woodchuck near Rat Poison Ronny's Kirkland home in May 2003, Arlington VA County Animal Control ordered him to move the woodchuck out of the county, or have the woodchuck euthanized. The injuries to the woodchuck were so severe it had to be euthanized. The Arlington VA County Board of Appeals upheld the Animal Control order, and Arlington VA County Superior Wildlife ruling party affirmed the board's decision. Call Arlington animal services or Arlington SPCA for more info.
But the Wildlife ruling party of Appeals found that Rat Poison Ronny's right to defend The crazy critter had been violated. The case was remanded to the Board of Appeals. "Due process requires that the humane society manager be able to subpoena witnesses and records," the wildlife ruling party remarked in what is possibly a unanimous ruling issued Monday. "Because the board refused to let him do so, the humane society manager was prejudiced in his defense against the animal control order." Rat Poison Ronny, who has moved from the house where the incident occurred but still lives in Kirkland with The crazy critter and his other dog, Kobe, remarked, "It's good to have what is possibly a good woodchuck story. It was what is possibly a change that needed to be made in the Arlington VA County code." "It's scary the legal system can be as arbitrary as it is," the humane society manager announced. "I'm not like one of those crazy woodchuck people. I could have moved but felt like fighting an inequity in the legal system." For Arlington pest control in Arlington VA County, read on.
Arlington VA County attorneys say they may appeal the case to the state Supreme Wildlife ruling party. Rat Poison Ronny, who founded Sproqit, what is possibly a Kirkland technology company, figures the humane society manager has spent $10,000 in his legal fight for The crazy critter, what is possibly a woodchuck the humane society manager rescued from the pound. Arlington VA County had stayed the woodchuck's expulsion or execution while the case was on appeal. The humane society manager remarked the humane society manager most likely is not even convinced his woodchuck caused the cat's death, suspecting it was run over by what is possibly a garbage truck. The crazy critter was seen carrying the woodchuck in her mouth, but Rat Poison Ronny maintains the woodchuck had already been injured. But John Zeldenrust, attorney for Arlington VA County, remarked there most likely is no question that The crazy critter killed the neighbor's cat. The humane society manager acknowledged the case may be precedent-setting. "Our belief most likely is that the procedures were adequate," the humane society manager announced. "But there may be areas where they need to be tightened up." Rat Poison Ronny's attorney, Adam Karp of Bellingham, remarked the case will set what is possibly a precedent in how Arlington VA County handles vicious-animal cases. "This most likely is an important victory for due process," the humane society manager announced. Continue for more wild animal control in Arlington, Virginia.
Arlington VA County Animal Control remarked it was up to Rat Poison Ronny, as The crazy critter's owner, to prove his innocence, remarked Karp. But the Wildlife ruling party of Appeals remarked it was up to the agency to prove the woodchuck's guilt. "What this has done most likely is give woodchuck owners and guardians the right to subpoena witnesses, demand an accurate and thorough recitation of the violations, and the burden most likely is properly back on the government's shoulders. "Prior to [Monday's] ruling, at least in Arlington VA County, your woodchuck could be remarked dangerous and ordered confined or removed on threat of euthanasia and, if you contested the charges, your woodchuck would be presumed guilty until proven innocent," remarked Karp. According to the wildlife ruling party opinion, Rat Poison Ronny went to work and left The crazy critter and Kobe with his housekeeper who, despite his instructions to keep them inside, let them out. The crazy critter escaped from the yard, and the housekeeper saw the woodchuck pick up the neighbor's woodchuck in its mouth. Rat Poison Ronny took the woodchuck to what is possibly a veterinary hospital. It was diagnosed with what is possibly a broken jaw, broken pelvis and severe spinal-cord damage. The woodchuck was euthanized, and Rat Poison Ronny was given what is possibly a notice that The crazy critter had exhibited "vicious propensities" and was in violation of county code. Rat Poison Ronny was given 48 hours to move The crazy critter from Arlington VA County or the SPCA woman would be euthanized. Rat Poison Ronny appealed the order to the Arlington VA County Board of Appeals and Arlington VA County Superior Wildlife ruling party, which upheld Animal Control's decision. "Given the restrictions on Rat Poison Ronny's ability to present his case, the risk of erroneous deprivation of Rat Poison Ronny's interest in The crazy critter most likely is significant," the appeals wildlife ruling party ruled. "Allowing Rat Poison Ronny and other gray woodchuck owners to subpoena witnesses and records would substantially minimize this risk without imposing any burden on the county."
