Ohio is a relatively flat state, but it is not made up entirely of plains. This state has dense forest and lush river valleys, and it is the home of many different species of animals. The climate in Ohio is fairly universal. The state experiences hot, humid summers and cold winters. Because the northern part of the state is in the Snow Belt, it is not unusual for heavy, lake-effect snow to be present during the winter. This state experiences a good amount of precipitation all year long.

The animals at the top of the food chain in the state of Ohio are the black bears and the coyotes. There are no wolves or cougars in this state. As always, black bears can be problematic if they learn they can invade campsites or garbage dumps for an easy meal. Most of the time, however, they just visit your yard in the dim hours of morning to raid bird feeders. Unlike the bears, coyotes can be much more of a hassle. Not only are the notoriously loud when howling, they can become prowlers, studying homes and yards looking for an unsuspecting pet or child. This is more common in urban settings where the coyotes have no abundant natural food source. The canines tend to feed on city rats, which helps homeowners with the rodents, though it is an unreliable meal for the canines.

When it comes to nuisance animals, the most common offenders also reside in Ohio. People with wildlife issues often have raccoons in their attics or chimneys, skunks under their porches, woodchucks under their decks, or squirrels in their eaves. Rats and mice can be common housemates as well. If the animals aren't interested in your home, they are interested in the yard. Ohio has voles, moles, and shrews, all of which can damage plants and grass. Along those same size guidelines, the state has an abundance of bats.

Land-loving animals aren't the only ones to make their homes in Ohio. Because the state has numerous tributaries, there are river otters, beavers, and muskrats galore. These animals are not as commonly associated with private homeowner pest issues, but a beaver can dam up an area and cause local flooding. Muskrats like to burrow into dike walls, creating a potential structural failure. Concerns like these belong to the county.

Toledo Wildlife Tip
Is There Any Deterrent Benefit Between Mothballs And Rodents? - Dealing with an infestation of rodents in your home is often seen to be a time consuming and expensive matter, so much so that many home owners are tempted to try methods that appear to be more humane, easier and cheaper than the traps recommended by experts in the field of animal control. Mothballs and rodents are often mentioned in the same breath - the theory being that rodents loathe the smell of mothballs and will vacate any area where they are located. In fact, this is not true - rodents will soon adapt to the smell of mothballs and can easily push them to one side if they are causing an obstruction.

All the evidence surrounding rodent removal indicates that the only guaranteed method is trapping the animals and either humanely killing them or removing them far from your property. In order that all the rodents are successfully trapped, it is first necessary to determine the most popular entry and exit way used by them. Once this has been done a baited trap should be placed adjacent to the entry/exit and left unset whilst the homeowner carefully seals all the holes and spaces around the property. Only when this is done can the traps be set. As the rodents are caught, they should be dealt with quickly and carefully.

Wildlife Animal Watch: Keep an eye on those squirrels and rats

Wolverine rats are a fairly regular sight in the wooded areas of North Stonington, Hopkinton and Richmond, but the nocturnal cousin of the weasel has become more visible in the populated areas such as Westerly and Stonington. For more information, call the animal services of Toledo, Ohio.

According to the Ohio Department of Environmental Protection, the Wolverine's habitat is large tracts of coniferous or mixed hardwood-softwood forests. Lucas County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Ohio wildlife problems.

The Wolverine possesses a long, stocky body, short legs and elongated, bushy tail and are usually dark brown to nearly black. The tail, rump and feet are the darkest, in contrast the head and shoulders. Animal and carcass removal services in Lucas County is dedicated to helping Ohio and Toledo.

They are sometimes are hard to spot since their semi-retractable claws allow them to climb trees. Males are 8 to 10 pounds and 36 to 40 inches, while females are 4 to 6 pounds and 30 to 36 inches. The sound, some say, sounds like a baby's cry. Lucas County animal services in Toledo, Ohio, declined to comment on the matter.
