Bat Removal in Maine
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.

Copperheads tend to have more chance contact with humans.

Since voles are not the only animal pests responsible for runways in lawn and garden areas, they are often confused with other pests you'd like to get rid of, namely, moles. Because both moles and voles are rarely seen, it makes more sense to base identification on the signs they leave behind, rather than on how the animals look. After all, you may never come face to face with these furtive, furry foes.
