Skunks- They are a real nuisance at the beginning of spring when the weather starts to change.  They will get under decks, sheds, slabs, etc.  During the winter, they will go into a semi hibernation state.  Some may wake up during the winter and roam from place to place.  If the skunk is female, you could have up to five other males in the area just wanting to mate with her.  Most skunk problems have at least 2 skunks to get rid of.  Control of them is with a live trap.  The State of Vermont has a rabies list and they are on it.  Transporting them is illegal so euthanizing them is required.

Woodchucks- They are also known as Ground Hogs.  They are a real nuisance during the spring, summer, and fall months.  They become a pest when they dig large holes to live in (burrow) under slabs, yards, under sheds, under porches, and in rock walls.  They are not seen very far away from their burrow.  They hibernate during the winter, so control of them is done during the spring and summer.  Control of them is with a live trap.  The State of Vermont has a rabies list and they are on it.  Transporting them is illegal so euthanizing them is required.

Raccoons- They are usually a nocturnal pest, but can be seen during the day if pushed from their nesting area.  They are known to inhabit old garages, attics, storage areas, etc.  They can be a very aggressive, so be careful when approaching them.  Depending on the situation, there are a few ways to eliminate them.  If live trapping is needed, the State of Vermont has a rabies list and they are on it.  Transporting them is illegal so euthanizing them is required.  There is also another method which is a lot more humane, if interested just give us a call.

Opossum- This pest is usually wandering around getting under sheds, porches, and storage areas.  Opossum are a nocturnal animal, and are very rarely seen during the day if at all.  They are usually caught when trying to control skunks. They usually are the reason for a skunk spraying under porches, decks, sheds, etc.  They usually come and go, but control of them is with a live trap.  The State of Vermont has a rabies list and they are on it.  Transporting them is illegal so euthanizing them is required.
