Skunk In Backyard in Alabama
You can smell them, you can see the damages they cause, but you can never figure out why they are coming around your house to begin with. Skunks are attracted to gardens, so if you have one on or around your property, you've found your answer. Not only do your gardens provide a tasty meal for skunks, it offers shelter, which is why they tend to stick around rather than eat and run.
Skunks are omnivores like us, so they eat all types of vegetables. But they will also dig up lawns and gardens for insects and grubs. Fortunately, there are some simple and effective methods for getting rid of skunks in your garden. Continue reading to learn them, and what to do if your skunk problem is larger than you can handle.
Skunks are common throughout most of the U.S., including Alabama. Skunks can thrive in various habitats, but they prefer forest borders, wooded ravines, and fields with a good water supply nearby. Skunks like to feel protected, and while they can dig their own dens, they frequently burrow under existing buildings and rock or junk piles. In suburban areas, skunks are most often found under stoops, sheds, and decks where they can dig out dens. Their entry point is usually about the size of a softball.
Groundhog Pest Control in Alabama
There are many ways to do away with groundhogs. All gardeners have their own preferred method. Some want to do away with them humanely without resorting to killing them. Others just want them gone efficiently and quickly. After you get rid of the groundhog, it is necessary that you watch out for a reappearance of a groundhog population.
If it does not bother you using chemicals in your mission to do away with the groundhog, a relative humane way to do so is by using ammonia. It is a quick-acting way to get a groundhog to move away. It may sound brutal and inhumane but if you handle it correctly, the groundhog inhabitants will move away without having to kill them. The way it works is by causing their burrows to be distasteful to them. With a distasteful burrow, they will journey on their own to another area of land away from the garden.

The Gray fox is a salt-pepper gray with rustic yellow on the sides of the neck, back of the ears, legs and feet. The tail is bushy with a black tip.

Bat Removal in Alabama
If you discover that you have a bat colony living in your house, it is important to act fast. Bats nest and "use" in the spots that they dwell in, causing huge messes, lingering odors, soiled drywall, and torn insulation. They can also chew through electrical wiring. The longer the bats live inside the home, the worse the damages will be. After long periods of time, their urine and droppings will create a potent odor that can seep into the main areas of the building or home. It can also create stains and discoloration in ceilings and walls. The more damages incurred, the more costly the restorations and repairs will be.
Rattlesnake Removal Alabama
There's a reason you have snakes on your property or in your house. Your property is in Alabama which has snakes (that includes most areas), and your property has features that are attractive to snakes. Most commonly, this means that your property is full of debris that attracts snakes. Snakes like a safe place to live and hunt and hide, and places to crawl in. So vegetation is a big snake attractor. So you can, if you wish, eliminate or trim back heavy vegetation. But more than that, if you have any rocks, sidewalk, plywood, a shed, or anything else that snakes can crawl under and den in, then you've REALLY got some attractive snake habitat. Eliminate all of these areas. Fill in gaps under rocks with dirt. Install an exclusion barrier, like a steel screen, around your shed or deck. Get rid of plywood or bricks or other debris. You can also install a fine-mesh fence sloping outward at a 30 degree angle, or tall solid fence around the perimeter of your property. If you've got snakes in your house, find out how they are getting in via a full inspection of the house.
