Here's lookin' at you Kid! Squirrel season is upon us!

Oh but their so Cute! The Eastern Gray Squirrel has been a big attention getter for us this year...people are always intruiged by the removal of the cute little pups.

Wildlife Specialist Steve Abati
The Fall Frenzy! Squirrels of all types are producing their young and some are nurturing their juvie sized pups using rooftops as their playgrounds. Tis the season where squirrels invasions are at their most notable because squirrels begin to forage the acorn fields for some winter grub and bring it into your house..we mean their nests. Storing their food in the most suitable areas in case a tough winter keeps them at bay,  keeps us here at Precision Wildlife on the move! 

This squirrel has caused a blockage!
 The eastern gray squirrel does not hibernate, they also use their sense of smell to find their "secret stash" when food is scarce! They aren't that smart and sometimes forget where they buried their nuts, but this is OK because someday that nut will be a tree and trees are good! So if anyone ever asks you what they are good for you have a most logical explanation.

Put em up, put em up!
We Know What Your Thinking! Oh no what if the squirrel forgets its nuts in my attic....I don't want a tree in my attic! Precision Wildlife won't let that happen infact we'll also inspect to see if it/they; matted down your insulation down to the point it is ineffective, chewed your wires cauising a fire hazard, left feces & urine deposits about, or chewed structural pieces of you home....Oh but their so cute! 

 Point of entry is key and we'll find it because we have ladders and we literally think like squirrels! Understanding home maintenance such as gutter cleanings, yearly roof inspections, house clearing of tree limb and other home maintenace services will help keep your home safe againts all types of critters! We are like your personel body guards against squirrels! 

Does anyone know why a squirrel swims on it's back?

The Unidentified Creature!

As I approached this creature I stated to the customer "This isn't a bat a tall!"

Did you know that if you have an animal, looking at you while at work or in your kitchen, there's a company you can call that responds immediately anywhere in New England? Sounds exciting already doesn't it? Well this is an everyday occurrence for us at Precision Wildlife and that's what makes our job so Great! Live animal removal calls, bats, raccoons, birds, snakes and yeah I guess skunks too!

Back in August we received a call from a customer in the North Shore of MA, for a possible bat inside of their building...ALIVE! They stated to us that is was in their co. warehouse and that no one could use the restroom out there because of the bats location. In August the busiest time of the year and we have no technicians in the area to send, what to do? Well I just go and I'm pretty excited about it too, because its a business...its a bat....they could have more...and I enjoy walking in plucking him out and then knowing how to fix a potentially more serious issue, as all of our experienced wildlife techs do!
As soon as I saw this thing I said "THAT'S NOT A BAT" and I wish I took a picture of that moment but I was focused on getting "it" before "it" flew. It looked like a giant bug with antennas and eyes and had a reddish gold color to it. Now we all know that the bats we deal with are; they are brownish color with black wings you know big browns and littles, don't we? After I secured it in my hand I quickly realized it was definitely a bat and it was one I had never seen before. I walked it out to the truck pretty quickly and put The Bat into a secured container and then went to handle the fun stuff.. 

 The actual removal took above 2 minutes and the other 58 minutes was used up for inspection of the building, paperwork, discussing the type of bat and explanation that there building could not be bat proofed as the costs would soar far to high with all the big bay type doors and unfinished window sections on the warehouse. This all being said I did a thorough inspection and then took some photos of the bat which I believe to be called a "Red Bat" although this could be proven otherwise! In fact if it is there's a hat in it for that person.

After the excitement of removing a non-brown live bat from a building had settled and when I was done photographing our bat friend we did let it fly away. Bats are protected and Precision Wildlife is a humane co. but we always determine if contact was made by anyone before releasing the bats into the wild. If you have a bat looking and its in you living room,  basement or even at your place of employment...  ask a our bat specialists if it is OK for you to let it fly away or ask us to get it out for you, if you think you can't!
