Virginia is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Portsmouth 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 Portsmouth 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
Norfolk 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 Norfolk 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.

Portsmouth Wildlife Tip:
Should I ever poison a groundhog?
Poison is one option that people sometimes resort to in an effort to get rid of groundhogs. There are a variety of poisons in the market that can be used to effectively kill these animals.
One of the most popular methods used to poison groundhogs is fumigation. This is the process by which a gaseous pesticide, also referred to as a fumigant, is used within the area of a groundhog invasion to suffocate them.
Another popular poison in the market that is being used to kill groundhogs is the strychnine poison. This also works in a similar way as the fumigant by suffocating the groundhog.
Yellow bait crystals cause unnatural reactions in the groundhog's body when ingested, which in turn affect their system functioning, resulting in eventual death.
Factors to consider before using poison to kill groundhogs
1. Use of poison to kill groundhogs is inhumane. This is because by the time the groundhogs die, they suffer a great deal. They will have internal bleeding, experience loose muscle control, have convulsions, have painful sores by the mouth and nose, become blind and even suffocate, among other effects. Other than suffering, death does not usually occur instantly, which means that they feel these effects for days or even weeks before dying.
2. Some poisons are illegal to use; therefore, one needs to understand which one is allowed and which one is not.
3. The effectiveness of the poison depends on the type of poison being used. Find the right one first before application.
4. One of the major disadvantages of using poison in killing groundhogs is the fact that they are not animal specific. What this means is that despite the fact that the main targets are the groundhogs, chances are that other animals that are untargeted may fall victim of the poison. This may range from harmless other wild animals to domesticated ones-even your pet.
5. Poisoned groundhogs will result in a pile of dead bodies, and worst of all is when they start to rot and pollute the whole area. This makes it very uncomfortable to be around this place.
6. Another thing is the extra work of cleaning up the dead groundhogs to dispose of them. This is time consuming and becomes even more so when the groundhogs die in hidden places.
7. Not to mention that the poison being used is also lethal to human beings, which means that if it is not used carefully and correctly, health hazards may be unavoidable.
Considering the above factors, which are basically the disadvantages and side effects, it is highly recommended that you not use poison to kill groundhogs in order to avoid unnecessary casualties and cruelty to the animals.
