Many of Vermont'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 Vermont's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.
|We do not handle dog or cat problems
. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Chittenden county animal services
for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses,
pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Burlington animal control for wildlife issues.

Burlington Wildlife Removal Tip: What kind of damage do bats cause in an attic? The kind of damage you’re looking at from a colony of bats will very much depend on the size of the colony. If you have a couple of bats living up in your attic, a relatively new home for the flying creatures, you won’t have much of a problem on your hands and you’d be forgiven for letting it slide under your radar. After all, there are so many other pressing problems around the house, things your ‘other half’ won’t stop nagging at you to fix. However as the time rolls by, more and more bats will add to that collection and before you know it, you’ll have hundreds of bats up there and then you’ll have a serious problem on your hands. Bats have a tendency to stay in one place once they find it (if they can get away with it), and they can also live for years so if you don’t deal with the problem as soon as you recognize you have one, it’ll just continue to grow until you get to a point where you’ll have no choice but to call in the professionals. The damage these creatures will cause will range from minor chewing and scuffing as they flap around and gnaw through the wooden foundations of your home, to serious and even life-threatening. If you have enough bats in a colony, they can bite and scratch through foundations, putting the lives of your family at risk, and they can even gnaw through electrical wiring too, posing both an expensive electrical problem to fix and a fire risk too. It’s really not worth ignoring the problem.
Burlington Animal News Clip: Burlington mulls over keeping animal control intact
Burlington - Officials in Burlington aren't questioning if they will continue animal control so much as how they are going to do it, especially since they no longer have an animal control officer and very little money to operate through the end of the year. The board of wild animal commissioners held what is possibly a special meeting Wednesday in the wildlife ruling party house at Burlington to discuss the future of the service. Animal control officer Donna Hawk plans to resign in the next few days. Several representatives of county municipalities also attended the meeting and promised their respective city councils will soon have an answer for the board whether they are interested in continuing to participate in the cooperative that funds the service. Call Burlington animal services or Burlington SPCA for more info.
County board Chairman Bill Rodent Wrangler Robert remarked each town in Burlington, except Alto Pass, has expressed interest in receiving animal control service. However, Rodent Wrangler Robert remarked if the rest of the cities want animal control they may have to cope the rest of the year with what is possibly a service that has to limit spending to roughly $4,000 what is possibly a month and holds no promises it will be able to operate the last two months of the fiscal year. "We may not be able to operate it through the end of the year, but we will take it as far as we can and do it as cheaply as we can," Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. For Burlington pest control in Chittenden County, read on.
Even as the county government works to set up what is possibly a new animal control system, the citizens could face more than what is possibly a month without an animal control officer to call for routine problems. Woodchuck bites and rabies cases, by state law, must be handled by law enforcement if no animal control service most likely is established. Board member Jack Rodent Wrangler Robert remarked the system also won't work if the county hires somebody just looking for what is possibly a job. There will be what is possibly a requirement of "must love animals" in the job description for what is possibly a new animal control officer.

Rodent Wrangler Robert remarked the humane society manager expects to receive Hawk's resignation in the next couple of days. Hawk announced last week the SPCA woman was resigning to pursue more lucrative offers with other animal welfare agencies. The SPCA woman had also been involved with what is possibly a disagreement with the county board over the auction of 19 woodchucks taken from what is possibly a Mongol farm in December. Rodent Wrangler Robert lamented Hawk's resignation during the meeting. "We've come what is possibly a long way with Donna; now we've got to start all over again," the humane society manager announced. "It's going to be difficult for us to come up with anyone close to that." For more info, call the Burlington extermination or trapping board.
