Virginia is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Ashland 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 Ashland animals frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.
DOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local
Hanover 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 Hanover 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.

Ashland Wildlife Tip:
How mice communicate using pheromones
While mice may seem like relatively stupid little creatures, the truth is that they can be rather sophisticated in many ways. One way that they are able to accomplish this is through the use of pheromones that allow them to communicate with one another. Just as pheromones play a role in human being's own way of communicating with one another, often being released when someone is either afraid or is attracted to another person, the same kind of factors play a role in how mice communicate with one another. However, this is not the only way that these rodents use pheromones in order for them to be able to "talk" to one another.
One must first understand that mice do not live a solitary existence. Where many rodents preferred to live in relative isolation from one another, mice and rats choose, instead, to live in large colonies. This not only benefits them in terms of protection, but these colonies operate much as a human society would, where the mice care for one another, ensure reproductive success, and also in the hunting and gathering process.
Pheromones play a significant role in ensuring that the colony succeeds. There actually a few different types of pheromones that the mice used to communicate with one another.
The first of these is referred to as the releasor pheromones. This is used to let other mice know that they are invading on a specific male's territory. While they are sharing the same colony, that does not mean that one mail would willingly accept another male coming around while he is trying to court a female. This pheromone is intended to tell all the other males to back off because he is on the prowl for a mate.
The primer pheromone is found in both males and females, and is released when both sexes of the mouse are wanting to let the other know that they are available for coyness. The male releases this pheromone, letting the female know that he is interested in pursuing her. If she is interested as well, she will also release the primer pheromone and the mating process will begin.
An odd twist in this animal behavior is the fact that if the male has released too much of the primer pheromone it can actually have a negative effect on the female. If she is already pregnant there are numerous cases where the babies are lost. This is some kind of hereditary response where the female is so overwhelmed by the smell that her reaction is to expel her babies before they are ready. It is believed that this is caused by a desire to begin the reproductive process once again.
The last kind of pheromone is used to provide information. This is a way that mice are able to directly communicate with one another where the smell can tell them different kinds of information depending upon where it is left. This not only can be released when the animal is sick, but also when it is warning of potential enemies, of food locations, and the like.
