Raccoon Control in Amherst
Some of the ways you can minimize the damage done by this animal are listed below. When a home owner discovers a raccoon nest in his home, most likely in attics or chimneys, he has to see to it that the animal is not comfortable in these areas.
Avoid direct confrontation with the mother because they tend to be over protective of their young and thus potentially dangerous. You have to illuminate the place with very bright lights, provide a source of loud sounds (e.g. a waterproof radio) or place clothes shocked in ammonia, the smells discourages them. If the above doesn't work then it will be time to seek the help of professional Amherst pest control agents.
Skunk In Backyard in Amherst
The best way on how to keep skunks away from your property is make sure that you don't have any left over food on your garbage can. Sealed your old food on your garbage bag and make sure to tie it up really hard so the skunks can't smell any food at all. If you have any outdoor pets, make sure to clean whatever food that they had because skunks will eat those dog foods or cat food as well and if they feel threaten by your dog, they will fight back and spray that stinky odor on your pet.
Try not to go after them when you see a skunk. If you just yell at them, their tendency is to run away from you. Place some of those traps and put stinky food inside. Once you catch one if those skunks, call your animal authorities in your area like SPCA and let them handle those skunks. They know how to handle those skunks and they can deal with their stinky spray once they attack.
Don't even try to hurt them or hit them with something, and don't let your pet do the same thing either, because skunks can also hurt your pets and they will attack when they are cornered badly.

Fox Pest in Amherst
In Amherst, there are two types of fox, the Gray Fox and the Red Fox. We service many calls about these guys hanging out in people's yards. Most times people are afraid of them, but for the most part they are harmless. This does not mean you should try to get near them, they are a wild animal and any mammal can have rabies, plus, it is in any animal’s nature to protect themselves if they feel threatened. They are curious and want our food. These guys are on the rabies list and are known to get mange. This is noted by hair loss of the tail and body. 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. These sly fellas vary in size, somewhere about 32-45 inches in length from nose to the tip of the tail and weigh between 7 and 15 lbs, they mate from around mid-January to early February and the gestation period is 51-53 days, and the pups are born from March through April and have 3-9 pups.

Black Bats in Amherst
There are roughly 40 species of bats in the U.S., The three main species of bats you see flying around are the little brown bat, the big brown bat and the evening bat. The wing span of the little brown bat is 9 - 10.6 inches; they are dark brown, shiny and have smooth fur. The big brown bats has a wing span of 12.8-13.8 inches and are a reddish brown copper color to a darker brown. The evening bat has a span of 10.2-11 inches and is a medium brown in color. These guys use a high frequency to detect food and obstacles; it’s really amazing if you think about it. They use audible sounds in order to communicate with each other. These bats mate in the fall and winter time, amazingly the female retains the sperm in her uterus and does not fertilize until spring time that is quite something. The young are born from May through July and start flying around 3 weeks of age and are weaned July through August. The little brown bat has usually one pup but can have two. The big brown bat has two pups and so does the evening bat. Amherst Wildlife Removal performs bat exclusions. If you have one or two that flew in your house, we can get them out and release them at anytime.
Snake Control Services Amherst Nh
One common type of snake that will come out during the summer nights is the northern copperhead. They normally emerge after dusk and they can be found during the entire night. Copperheads and the black king snake are other types of snakes that will appear during the night. The king snake is normally the first snake to go out during the evening and it can continue to forage late into the night. The copperheads can make an early exit and they may not be found later in the night. Small snakes like worm snakes may be out in the morning hours to gobble up earthworms. The small snakes may move within small branches and twigs, and they can be found moving over roads.
Mole Extermination Amherst Nh
A good fraction of individuals are aware that moles typically dig extensive networks of tunnels underground as their primary means of getting from one place to another. But what they may not know is that these subterranean tunnels also double as food traps and storage larders, where the food consists primarily of earthworms that have been paralyzed as a result of a special toxin found in their saliva. It has been said that once an earthworm falls into one of these tunnels, the mole almost instantly senses it and moves in to immobilize it. Consequently, these tunnels may even contain hundreds of unfortunate earthworms just waiting to be consumed. The large volume of food they consume each day is necessary to offset the considerable amount of energy they expend burrowing through the soil. Aside from earthworms, moles also eat grubs, ants, as well as other bugs and their larvae.

House Mouse Diet: A mouse will eat almost anything, but prefer cereal grains, seeds, or sweet material. They require very little water, obtaining most of their water needs from their food. Mice can consume large quantities of stored seed and grains from farmers and granaries.

They sexually mature in two months, producing about 8 litters in a one year life time. Each litter has 4-7 pups. A house mice in a city environment may spend it's entire life in buildings. In rural and suburban settings, it may not only live inside, but be found outside near foundations, in the shrubbery, weeds, crawl spaces, basements, or in garages.
