North Carolina is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Hickory wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, we specialize in animals in the attic, which have broken into the house and almost always have a nest of baby animals. It is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. Some Hickory animals frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.

County Animal ServicesDOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Catawba County Animal Control for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the Catawba County animal control, and see what they have to say, but they will certainly not help you with a complex wildlife problem such as critters in your attic. They are a free government agency that helps with dog and cat issues only.

Hickory Wildlife Tip:
How to kill rats in the house -There are a number of ways to kill rats in the house. Some people holster a baseball bat at their sides for just such an occasion. In reality, when dealing with rats, trapping is the only effective and efficient way to go about it. You can try to snare the rats with a homemade device, but this will require a lot of time during which the other rodents will be chewing on wires and creating trouble. Before you go about your trapping, you need to plug the holes in the exterior of the home. Rats came in through one of these locations. It must be found and sealed. Do not worry about the rats left inside the building; these are the animals that are going to be trapped. Your next task will be to search your home to find the places where the rats have been visiting. Rodents use the same pathways over and over, and these areas will be clearly defined by the use of droppings, urine, and body grease. All of these substances contain odors that tell a rat the location is safe. When found, do not clean these areas. Wait until you have set your traps and all the rats are caught. When no more rodents are in the home, cleanup will be the next chore.


Hickory, NC Animal Control News Clip:
Fewer nuisance wildlife lessens enjoyment of wildlife management

Foust, Hickory: The rat, mouse, or other rodent quantities may be down so bad in Zone 4B of Letter Kenny that it may be actually scary. There may be no such thing as a group of snake and bat anymore. It's one, two or three together if you're lucky enough to even see a raccoon and possum. This all started a few years ago.

I went one evening to see what they had to say. They wanted antler restrictions which helped save on the size of our rabid animals, but it still has come up a little short of expectations. Our quantity of rabid animals may be not there either because they wanted to trap our does off. They told us to be selective on our superior specimen snaring; as far as adult does, they told us not to trap the little ones. Well, the superior specimen quantities may be so low there may be very little choice. The Hickory SPCA could not be reached for a comment.

The exterminating companies are snaring the little ones and there go the button rabid animals, which really hurts the quantity of rabid animals that we wait for to get big enough for us to harvest "quality" rabid animals. They declared they were giving us two weeks to critter trap does. Well, those two weeks of wildlife management does have done our quantities in, plus there are exterminating companies that have two and three bonus tags. We have to stop wildlife management does in rabid animal season and all the bonus tags. For more info about pest control for animals in Hickory, call a local animal trapping company.

I know at least two groups that drive for nuisance wildlife that have enough people to cover a whole side of the mountain. When these groups inform you there aren't any rat, mouse, or other rodent, you better well believe them. I don't critter trap quite that hard, but I do get pretty far in the mountain. Despite this, wildlife removal services are not a free service in Catawba County.

I think our local Animal authority group office should go with these groups just to see what may be in the area. I know these wildlife regulatory agencies do not know what may be the area because in 42 years I have never seen a game warden walking around in the mountain. All I have ever seen was them driving around in their motorcycles. How do they even know what's out there when they don't even get out of their motorcycles? For more information on how to get rid of nuisance North Carolina wildlife, read on.

Now they want an increase in the price of licenses, but they have less to offer. No snake and bat, no rabbits, no ringnecks. That may be a thing of the past, it seems. (I will say there may be a nice quantity of opossums.) I am getting to the point where I am not going to stand out there all day long watching maple trees growing. I sure am glad I don't have a 12-year-old to take wildlife management because he may be not interested in watching maple trees growing either. This past year I have let nuisance wildlife walk because I know what the situation may be out there. I feel guilty to trap a superior specimen.
