If I had a raccoon in my attic crawlspace and I was not in the wildlife removal

industry(Though I am) I often think of how homeowners would think and

act when they are presented with an animal that is in the attic, Wall or

crawlspace  and if the homeowner has no idea how to get rid of the

raccoon in the attic.


One of the first thoughts I can think of is pest control or the local animal shelter

due to the fact that it is a readily local or city sanctioned idea. We

are conditioned as youths to call the local dog catcher or local rat

removal guy when dealing with animal control issues .

The second thought I had was the sheriffs department or local fire

fighters  or a close neighbor or friend. The problem here in my thoughts

are that raccoons can be and are dangerous, especially when with young

and this could actually put whomever was chosen to help into harms way.

Raccoons will bite and scratch, trust me I have witnessed that in


My Thoughts on Raccoon Removal in Lexington, KY !

To be honest when it comes to pest control companies and wildlife removal in Charleston, WV here are my thoughts. They could be completely wrong but again they are my thoughts.

Pest control companies pay their pest control techs by the hour and

lets be honest how many people do you know that would engage with a wild animal

such as a raccoon when making barely over minimum wage, I mean really

.. would you? and on that note would the tech actually care how long it

takes to trap the animal or raccoon from your house or complete the

raccoon remove in a timely manner?  Pest control companies specialize in

insects period.

The local sheriffs department and the firefighters actually no longer

help in raccoon removal unless the animal becomes a threat and then

they will immediately destroy the animal if they can. Again if we have

to be honest they have far more important things to be worried about and

the fact is that there is a company that not only handles these issue

but can exclude or repair the damage and install preventative measures

to prevent future occurrences.  If you have a plumbing issue do you call

the police? NO you call a plumber..

So in closing I have come to the conclusion that marketing and education are the best key set to bringing the fine people of Lexington, KY

to understand that when they do have wildlife conflicts there is a

company that can help and that company is The Wildlife Professionals of

WV and though they are not perfect they are relentless and not paid by

the hour.

The wildlife professionals are a network of local trappers and

wildlife exclusion experts and they are the heart beat of nuisance

wildlife removal in America and I proud to have been involved in this revolution.

The Wildlife Professionals of Pennsylvania for a solution!


Here’s what stinks in Pittsburgh Metro !.

How about a Fall skunk invasion.

Thats what’s been happening recently in the Fall, and again in the Spring as skunks, like several other wild animals, venture more and more into urban neighborhoods looking for food and shelter.

Damon Greer, Assistant Wildlife Management Supervisor for the Pennsylvania Division of Wildlife says generally skunks are rather shy except when it comes to your dog or other pets.

When should you be worried when you see a skunk in your yard? ” When people go out they (the skunks) just walk away. They’re somewhat defenseless, other than spraying. They’re slow. The big thing is pay attention to their demeanor. if they raise their tail they’re agitated, and if they kind of dance around a little bit that means they’re probably going to spray,” says Greer.

Greer says there are lots of places inn the city for skunks to move in. ” They often times will den up under an old porch, or shed or an old pile of wood or something in the back yard. They’ll den up in places like that and come out in the evening typically” says Greer.

He says skunks like to dig for grubs, japanese beetles and other insects which come out of the ground in the Fall and Spring.
