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.
During the springtime in Pennsylvania baby squirrels are being born. An average litter consists of 4-6 young squirrels. 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.
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. We provide humane removal of squirrels and squirrel exclusion services to prevent an infestation in the future.
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 early spring a female raccoon will locate a proper nesting location and get ready to give birth. An average litter consists of 3-7 baby raccoons also known as kits. If able, a raccoon will make her way into our attics and crawlspaces to raise her young. Common areas that we see raccoons gain access is through unscreened vents and openings along our roof lines and soffits. An uncapped chimney is also a perfect location for a raccoon to rear her young.
A person will often complain of hearing loud chirping, purring or cooing noises coming from their attic or fireplace. This is a tell tale sign that you may have a raccoon infestation. Once the litter of baby raccoons are born they can become very vocal. If you are experiencing any noises like this it is best to contact a professional wildlife control company to handle this situation. Removal of a family of raccoons can be dangerous and quite difficult and should best be handled by a professional.
Another common nuisance complaint call that we get during the spring for raccoons is when they raid our 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 during the spring as an excellent easy meal. 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.
Skunks can become a nuisance during the spring 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 spring in PA when they invade our homes in search of warm nesting locations. They will gather grasses and trash to make their nests. Once a nest is made they will lay their eggs. You will start to notice the mother bird constantly flying in and out of the nest in search of food for the young chicks. The chicks will become very vocal and loud chirps and peeps can be heard as the mother bird nears the nest. This activity of birds and noises are a dead giveaway of a bird infestation.
They can access into our attics through small gaps, cracks and holes along our roofs and soffits. They can also gain access into unscreened kitchen vents, attic exhaust fans and uncapped chimneys. 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 other common complaints that we receive during the spring having to do with bird control involves live bird removal from a chimney or fireplace, a loose bird flying inside a home or office and dead bird removal. These situations can become very stressful for the homeowner and is best left to be re mediated by a professional wildlife control company such as ourselves.
Springtime in Pennsylvania means the arrival of bats. As the weather warms up and insects start to appear so do the brown bats. They will emerge from hibernation in early spring and start their nightly feedings. Many bats will migrate back to our area in search of their roosting sites to give birth and raise their young, the same way as salmon do! An attic or chimney makes an excellent roosting site for bats and if not properly secured the bats will find a way in. They only need a very small gap, crack or hole to gain access into one of these areas.
Once inside the bats will gather into their maternity colony and get ready to give birth in late MAY. Bat removal and exclusion " bat proofing" must never be done during mid May to late July. This is the time when the female bats will leave the roost to feed at night but the baby bats will be left behind and unable to fly. Once all the bat pups are grown and can fly on their own, then the whole colony can be humanely removed and openings can be sealed up. During this time is when you may get a" lost" bat inside the home or building. Bat removal should always be left to a professional wildlife control specialist. They can possibly carry rabies and contact should be avoided by them.
Snakes will be found in spring as we start yard work and garden preparation for the upcoming season. They can be seen sunning themselves along our patios, rock walls and in our gardens usually during the hottest part of the day. Most of the common snakes in Pa are non-venomous but caution should always be taken. We can humanely remove snakes from your property very quickly.
In the early part of spring, when snakes are coming out of hibernation the males generally emerge first to be ready when the females wake up to mate. There are generally far more males than females and that is why, during mating season they form "mating balls," where one or two females will be completely swamped by ten or more males. Many people see this and think that they have a nest of baby snakes emerging, but the snakes are usually not born until July.
Snakes can be found inside our homes during the spring for a few reasons. Snakes can enter into our basements and crawlspace through gaps and cracks along the foundation usually in search of food such as rodents, insects and frogs. Another time when snakes will enter inside is when they are getting ready to shed their skin. They will seek shelter to hide from predators when they are most vulnerable during the molting process. This process can take a few days and once the skins are shed the snakes will exit and go back to hunting. Sometimes snake skins can be found in the backyard.
Rats and mice become very active in Pennsylvania during the spring months. 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 mice and rats and exclusion methods are 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 and pets. If you are in need of professional rodent control please give us a call and let us help you remove those unwanted pests naturally!
