Which animals are active this season?
Wildlife activity changes with each passing season here in PA. Specific animals become more prevalent during certain times of the year due to weather changes and other natural factors. Being aware of which species of wildlife is most active in your area can help you take appropriate steps in protecting your home or property against a wildlife invasion this season.
Squirrels will stay active all year long and may even mate again in June. This means that a summer litter of young will be born. Once squirrels have mated and established a suitable nesting location, they will raise their young. An average litter consists of 4-6 young squirrels and are typically born in the end of July or early August. The female squirrel will nurse the babies for their first ten weeks. During this time the babies are completely dependent on their mother for milk. After ten weeks old, the baby squirrels will start to leave the nest with their mother, learning how to survive on their own. Once these babies leave the nest they are referred to as juveniles. The juvenile squirrels will play together, practice nest building, find and store food.
Typical nesting locations that squirrels will take advantage of are open chimney flues, unscreened vents and attic exhaust fans and holes along roof edges, eaves and soffits that allow access into an attic or crawl space. We commonly remove squirrels from these difficult areas with the use of a one way door and exclusion also known as "Squirrel proofing".
Common complaints that we hear with a squirrel infestation are scratching in the walls and ceiling, running or pitter patter of feet, chewing and gnawing sounds coming from the walls. This activity can become quite loud as the family of squirrels grows and becomes more active inside. Squirrels are diurnal which means they are most active at dawn and dusk.
Bird feeders can attract many unwanted squirrels to your property as they search for food. They should always be kept a far distance away from your home and a squirrel baffle is also a good idea to keep the squirrels from eating all the bird seed that is meant for the birds. Plastic trash cans can be chewed into and trash brought out as the squirrels gather food and nesting debris. Replacing plastic cans for metal trash cans with lids will keep squirrels from chewing on containers and keep the trash contained.
In Pennsylvania raccoons can sometimes give birth to a late litter in the early summer. Common complaints we hear with a raccoon infestation is the chitter chatter of raccoons. A litter of raccoon kits can be very loud and vocal with noises consisting of purrs, chirps and cries. Heavy movement and larger pitter patter of feet can be heard mainly at night as the adult raccoons move around. Attics and chimneys can provide a perfect nesting location if made available to raccoons. It is a good idea to make sure that chimneys have a cap on top of the flue, all attic vents have a heavy duty screening installed and all holes or gaps along the roof edge are secured to prevent raccoon entry.
Another common nuisance complaint that we get during the summer for raccoon removal is when they raid trash cans in search of food. Raccoons are opportunistic and will take advantage of any opportunity to find a meal. Always keep all trash contained in metal cans with tight fitting lids to prevent trash being drug out and scattered all over the lawn. Bird feeders can also become a raccoon attractant. Outside pet food is another easy meal for wandering wildlife. Always keep all food contained and indoors if possible if you are experiencing an infestation of raccoons.
Bats become very active in the summer months in Pennsylvania. They will take flight daily at dusk to feed on insects. Did you know that a single bat can consume 1000 insects an evening.....what great pest control they provide! As long as bats roost outside where they belong we do not seem to have a problem. But sometimes bats will take find their way into homes, attics and chimneys to roost and raise their young and this can become a nuisance.
A bat infestation can be a very stressful situation for a homeowner. Common complaints that we handle include removal of a live bat flying inside a home, apartment or office building, bat exclusion from attics and chimneys, bat guano clean up from attic spaces and bat exclusion from shutters. A tell tale sign of a bat infestation is the daily appearance of droppings or seeing bats fly out from your home at dusk. Bats can gain access into our homes from very small gaps and cracks along our roof edges, eaves and soffits, open chimney flues, open windows and unscreened vents, faulty ridge vents and attic exhaust fans.
Let the professionals humanely remove the bats from your home. They are very beneficial to our environment and are protected in the state of Pennsylvania. There are some regulations as to when bat removal and bat proofing can be done in Pa. The bats will give birth and rear their young in late May up until August 1st, during this time we can not evict a colony. We can however bat proof the living quarters of a home so no bats can enter and also do emergency live bat removal if a bat gets lost inside a home.
Skunks can become a nuisance during the summer in Pa when they make our properties their homes. They can create burrows under porches, decks, sheds and even along our foundation of our home. Once a skunk lives underneath one of these structures the area can become quite stinky with the smell of skunk musk. Skunks will spray if agitated or provoked especially by a wandering unsuspecting dog. This can become quite a chore to remove the scent of skunk from the animal and anything that they may have come into contact with.

Skunks are nocturnal animals, so they head out at night to find their food. Skunks are omnivorous, which means that they will eat fruit, nuts, insects, meats, garbage basically anything they can find. This can become a nuisance to homeowners when the skunks raid their garbage cans and compost piles. They will visit bird feeders nightly to forage on seeds dropped from squirrels and birds. Another common complaint with skunks is their habit of digging conical holes in our yards in search of grubs. They can destroy your grass and turf up the yard in their search for food. Skunks will find food left out for other animals such as outside cats. You should always bring in any unfinished pet food at night to prevent a problem from happening in the future.
If your home or property is being invaded by a family of skunks, you may be in need of professional skunk removal. This should always be left to a wildlife control specialist. This will usually involve trapping and removal of live skunks and/or exclusion. Exclusion is a term meaning to seal off all entry points along a structure to prevent animal entry. Once all skunks are removed and entry points sealed your problem is solved now and for good.
Birds such as starlings, house sparrows and pigeons can become a nuisance during the summer in PA when they invade our homes in search of suitable nesting locations. They will gather grasses, trash and even dryer vent lint to make their nests and raise their young. Common places we see birds nesting that can become a nuisance are inside our dryer vents, kitchen vents and attic exhaust fan vents.
They can also gain access into our attics through small gaps, cracks and holes along our roofs and soffits. Their droppings and urine can build up and cause a health concern. It is best to humanely remove the birds through the use of exclusion devices and sealant work along the roof line to prevent re-entry once all baby birds are able to fly out of the nest on their own with the adult birds.
Some common bird removal complaints that we handle during the summertime involves humane bird removal from a chimney or fireplace, a loose bird flying inside a home or office. These situations can become very stressful for the homeowner and is best left to be re-mediated by a professional wildlife control company.
Rats and mice become very active in Pennsylvania during the summer. They are in constant search of food, water and shelter. This search can lead them into our homes and offices. Rodents can gain access into our homes through the smallest of gaps around the foundation, along the roof lines and even under garage doorways. Common complaints that we hear when someone is experiencing a rodent infestation includes noises in the walls and ceiling mainly at night, droppings appearing in the living quarters of a home, and food containers being chewed on in the kitchen and pantry.
Trapping of rats and mice and exclusion methods can be effective means of rodent control. This involves knowing the best places to set traps, which traps are most effective and sealing up all possible entry points along the exterior of a home or building. Without the use of poisons and chemicals, there is no health risk for children, pets and other wildlife. If you are in need of professional rodent control please give us a call and let us help you remove those unwanted pests naturally!
Snakes are a very common sight here in Pennsylvania in the summer months. They can be seen sunning themselves on black top driveways, slate patios and along pool sides in the backyard. This can be a frightening encounter if one is not familiar with our local snakes. Most of the snakes in southeastern Pennsylvania that we commonly handle are non-venomous. The most common species that we see often are the Common Eastern Garter Snake, Northern Water Snake, Black Rat Snake, Eastern Milk Snake and the Black Racer.
Snakes like most animals, grow rapidly early in life. Their bodies
enlarge until the skin must be shed for new growth to continue. Young
snakes can shed four or more times per year and adults may shed only once or twice per year. During this molting process snakes are very vulnerable to prey. Their eyes cloud over making it difficult to see and they become weak from not eating. Most snake complaints will come because they enter into our homes or basements in search of a secure area to shed their skins. Once a snake sheds its skin you may notice the dried skin(shed) left where the snake was hiding. Multiple snake skins found in a location may be need for concern.
If you are experiencing a problem with snakes on your property let a professional wildlife removal specialist come and do an inspection. We offer many snake removal and prevention services including, locating possible nesting and denning locations, exclusion services to protect your home from snakes being able to enter and also trapping and live removal of snakes from inside the home, on the exterior of the home and even from ponds and pools on the property.
Summertime means vegetable gardens and flower beds are in full bloom! This is also the perfect time when groundhogs can become a nuisance in Pennsylvania. They can devour an entire crop of plants or vegetables in days. A proven method to help control a groundhog problem is by trapping and removal.
Another common complaint with groundhogs living on a property is their destructive digging and tunneling. A family of groundhogs can burrow underneath of the foundation of a home, sun porch, deck or shed. This over time could cause settling issues or structural damage. Not only can this cause unsightly holes in the backyard but it also makes a perfect home for a wandering skunk or raccoon in search of a new nesting location!
Exclusion or underground fencing can be installed to prevent any unwanted wildlife to make these areas their homes. Trapping and removal is also another effective means of controlling a wildlife invasion on your property. Always let a wildlife control specialist handle your groundhog removal problem. They are possible carriers of rabies and special care should always be taken when handling wildlife to ensure the safety of the animals and humans.
