Kentucky State bird: Northern cardinal

State fish: Kentucky spotted bass
State insect: Viceroy butterfly

Kentucky is known for its thoroughbred horse racing. For a state to be so well-known for large grazing animals, it stands to reason that the terrain is fairly flat and hilly with lush grass and a fair amount of forest. The state is covered by bluegrass, a thick form of vegetation that does well in the fertile soil. This state has the country's longest connecting system of waterways.

When people think of elk, they don't usually think of Kentucky, but the state has one of the largest wild elk herds in the country. At one time, bison roamed much of the region. Like most of the United States, bison eventually vanished, and now only a few privately owned herds are left in Kentucky. Other animals that were once native and have now been extirpated include cougars, gray wolves, and red wolves. As far as the state is concerned, there is no breeding population of these animals in Kentucky.

This region has plentiful white-tailed deer populations just as it does elk herds. The unique grasslands provide the grazers with more than enough food to keep them comfortable through all the seasons.

Just because it's known for horses doesn't mean Kentucky has escaped the ravages of nuisance animals. There are plenty of common critters that make life as a homeowner difficult and frustrating. Kentucky has the most common home invader in the country: the house mouse. It also has rats, raccoons, opossums, woodchucks, prairie dogs, porcupines, otters, beavers, and snakes.

Kentucky has been one of the states to see a recent spread of the nine-banded armadillo into the region. These burrowing creatures can cause significant damage in a yard just overnight. Trapping and removal is relatively easy, but the only way to keep them out is with diligent yard care and a fence. br>
Though not really a strict carnivore, the state also has the large black bear as a top-of-the-food-chain predator. These creatures are relatively reclusive, though they can become bold if a dependency on trash starts to develop. Coyotes are also common in Kentucky, but the mischievous canines are not huge nuisance animals because of the short, milder winters seen in the state. Farmers have taken to introducing llamas into herds of sheep and goats to help ward off a coyote that may be eyeing livestock.

Lexington Wildlife Tip
Plumbing Vent Stack: Can Rodents Be Causing Problems? - A plumbing vent in your home is essential, since it removes sewer gases from the drainage system and maintains the right level of atmospheric pressure. If your draining system works properly, that means your plumbing vent is functioning properly. What are the signs that you have a clogged plumbing vent stack, and how do you fix it?

Quite often when you are dealing with a plumbing vent problem you are dealing with a rodent problem. It is also true that rodents may be using this vent to get into your home. If this is the case they will be carrying in materials and building nests. This rubble coming through the vent can be problematic, causing backups of noxious fumes into your home.

The first thing you'll want to do if you're having problems is to clean out the vent and clear away any debris. This will allow you to see what other problems there are. If there is a rodent there will be damage and evidence of chewing. The best way to fix this is to use heavy wire mesh or steal to encase the area and to create a cover. You will want to make sure there aren't any rodents living inside the vent as they may be stuck inside and die. Also, be sure to check the rest of your homes foundation for any other areas the rodent may be getting in with.

Game tags in Nevada are specific to certain areas, and wildlife trappers must designate the location when they apply for the annual draw. Investigators said evidence suggests the wildlife trappers applied for tags in an area where they had better odds of drawing a permit in the annual lottery, but intended to trap in the other one that has a reputation for big mink and badger. "Our investigation indicates this has gone on for a while," The wildlife management expert said. "This isn't the first time." He declined to discuss further details.
