Tri-State Wildlife Management – Protecting You, Your Property, and Your Investment
Crestview Hills, KY Snake Removal (41017): Snakes enter houses, barns and other buildings when habitat conditions are suitable inside the buildings. They are attracted to rodents and insects as well as cool, damp, dark areas often associated with buildings.
Snakes are specialized animals, having elongated bodies and no legs. They have no ears, externally or internally, and no eyelids. Snakes have a long forked tongue which helps them smell. The jaws are loosely connected so the snake can swallow food much larger than its head. Because snakes are cold-blooded and not very active, one meal may last them several days or weeks. Also, because they are cold-blooded, they may hibernate during cold weather months or estivate during hot summer months. Some snakes lay eggs while others have live births.
Nonvenomous snakes are harmless to humans. In most cases, a snake will slither away when approached if it feels it can reach safety. Most snakes react only when cornered. A nonvenomous snake bite has no venom and can do no more harm than frighten the victim. Snakes are one of the most feared animals on the planet. Most people shudder at the very thought of a snake. Tri-State Wildlife Management is here to ease the tension and take care of the removal process for the home or business owner.

General Chipmunk Information

Chipmunks not only live in woodland areas, but also in yards and around homes and other structures. In order to stay well hidden, burrow entrances are typically near brush, wood piles, stumps, landscaping, stairs, foundations, sheds, garages, etc. In addition, chipmunks leave no dirt mounds near burrow holes, instead carrying it away in their cheek pouches. Burrows are about 20-30 feet, consisting of a main tunnel, escape tunnels, food chambers and a nesting chamber. Chipmunks eat a variety of foods, including nuts, fruits, seeds, animal carcasses, bird eggs, and small birds. Chipmunks may mate twice a year, once in early spring and sometimes again in late summer. Between 2-7 young are born April-May and in August-October.

Chipmunk Damage and Nuisance Behavior

Although chipmunks in large quantities can cause structural damage, most damage involves feeding on seeds, bulbs, vegetables, fruit, pet food, bird seed, and grass seed. Chipmunks also make a mess in mulch beds and gardens as they burrow. Although structural damage occurs less often, it is a serious concern. Chipmunks burrowing under or along foundations, basements, garages, sheds, patios, and stairs can affect the integrity of these structures.

Tips for Chipmunk Control

In order to properly solve a chipmunk problem, habituated chipmunks must be trapped and removed. Tri-State Wildlife Management can provide this service to you in a safe, effective, and professional manner. To prevent further damage and future chipmunk problems, you may need to modify the habitat of your yard. For example, brush and wood piles may need to be moved, ivy cut back, and bird feeders removed or placed further away from your home. Tri-State Wildlife Management offers habitat modification services when desired. Tri-State Wildlife Management strives for the most humane and environmentally effective techniques for dealing with wildlife problems. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s use of modern innovative methods provides sound wildlife management services to ensure the protection of our customers’ investments and health.

Ft. Mitchell, KY Mouse Removal (41017) Tri-State Wildlife Management

Lakeside Park, KY Mouse Removal (41017): Mice live just about everywhere, and they often choose to live in man-made structures such as houses, apartment buildings, office buildings, warehouses, or sheds, just to name a few. All homes and buildings in northern Kentucky are susceptible to mice, and many homes and businesses have mice, although we often go unaware. Mice usually stay out of sight, choosing to stay in unoccupied areas of a home or building. Attics, walls, duct work, crawlspaces, and basements are some very common places that mice reside. If mice are detected, it’s usually because scratching or squeaking is heard coming from the ceiling or walls. Less often, physical evidence left by mice is found. Some of the most common physical signs of mice include chew marks, crumbs, nesting materials, and droppings. It’s a rare occasion if TSWM receives calls from customers who know for sure that they have a mouse/mice problem, based on droppings, crumbs, and chew marks in food or other materials. It can be a little unsettling to find evidence of mice in your home or office, and when you do, you want to get rid of them right away.

It can often be difficult to determine whether a mouse/mice is the culprit making the noise, however, and not until a thorough inspection is complete can the animal be identified. Noises made from squirrels, birds, or bats are often mistaken for mice, and vice versa. Tri-State Wildlife Management provides removal and exclusion services for all wild animals, so no matter who the culprit is, we can take care of it for you. If another animal is to blame for making the noise in the walls or ceiling, a removal and exclusion plan can be implemented. This typically involves trapping the target animal and then repairing entry points or vulnerable areas on the home with wildlife grade construction materials.

Tri-State Wildlife Management will take care of your mouse problem. TSWM completes a house inspection to determine where the mice are located and where best to set up to trap them. TSWM never uses chemicals or pesticides of any kind to resolve a mouse issue. TSWM also educates customers on how to deter mice from their home or office through habitat modification. Some of the most important changes to consider are keeping enticing foods (bird seed and pet food, too) tightly packaged and making potential nesting materials unavailable. After the home inspection and setup, traps are monitored and/or checked until the customer and TSWM know the mouse issue has been resolved.

Tri-State Wildlife Management can take care of your mouse issue for you. As a full service company, TSWM will complete a home inspection and begin a trapping program. In addition, TSWM educates customers on how to remove and deter mice from your home. When you hire TSWM to resolve your mouse problem, you can ensure the process involves zero pesticides, toxicants, or chemicals of any kind.

Villa Hills, KY Groundhog Removal (41017)

Groundhog - Tri-State Wildlife Management

Villa Hills, KY Groundhog Removal (41017): If you have a groundhog problem or have had one in the past year, now is the time to trap groundhogs and remove them. Although pastures and open fields are favorite areas for groundhogs to den, it is not uncommon for them to burrow in urban areas under or alongside the foundation of houses and buildings.  The main entrance to their burrow is evident by the pile of soft, powdery dirt next to the entrance. Secondary entrances are sometimes difficult to locate because they lack this pile of dirt. Each opening is about 10 inches in diameter. The groundhog’s range is surprisingly close, averaging 50-150 feet from its den.  However, males may travel long distances while looking for a mate, and these males have even been seen traveling at night.

Groundhogs become a nuisance when they excavate next to foundations or under buildings.  Their eating habits do not typically conflict with humans; however, gnawing on underground power cables or electric lines causes power outages.  The only way homeowners can discourage groundhogs from digging in their yard is to trap and remove all groundhogs in the area.

Groundhogs are found throughout much of the eastern portion of the United States, most of Canada and into Alaska.  They enjoy activity during the day, especially warm, sunny afternoons in the spring and fall.  They can often be found sunning themselves in an open field, or on a wall or fence.  The groundhog has a solid, stocky body and very strong legs.  Its front feet have long claws suited for digging burrows.  Its fur is very coarse, and mostly brown in color.  The groundhog is a member of the squirrel family; however, unlike squirrels, groundhogs fall into a deep state of hibernation during the winter months. Because groundhogs’ eyes, ears, and nose are located toward the top of their head, they can check for danger while remaining in their burrow. Groundhogs are herbivores and favorite foods are grasses (especially alfalfa and clover), vegetables and fruit. They enjoy feeding in the early morning and late afternoon.

Ft. Mitchell KY Mole Control

Highland Heights, KY Mole Control: The Eastern Mole is found in much of the United States. Although there are seven know species of moles in the US, northern Kentucky is familiar with the Eastern Mole. Moles can live up to seven years; however, most live three years. Moles have a blunt, stocky body and large feet and claws for digging. Their fur is velvet-like and will smooth in either direction for turning in tunnels. They have small eyes and very poor eyesight. The mole’s sense of smell is very good and they use their long nose to search for food.

It is a common misconception that treating a lawn for grubs will keep moles at bay; however, their diet relies heavily on worms and other bugs. Moles sleep a great deal, and when they are not sleeping, they are busy tunneling in search for food. Their active periods are usually between 2am and 7am, 11am to 4pm, and 8pm to 11pm. Males are most active in February and March for mating season, and females are most active in May and June while raising young. Moles can have 3 litters of 3 to 8 young a year, so they multiply quickly. Even one or a few moles can cause quite a bit of damage, so imagine what a severe mole infestation can do!

Moles can be extremely destructive to yards and landscaping, and it doesn’t take long for them to wreak havoc on your property. Moles tunnel 18 feet an hour, and can move both forwards and backwards at 80 feet a minute. Moles have two types of tunnels -surface tunnels and deep tunnels. The deep tunnels are used during winter when it’s cold and in the summer when it’s hot. They also make mole mounds which are very visible. Moles like their living quarters to be on higher ground.

Our courteous staff works for you to provide a cost effective solution to your mole intrusion and/or damage issue. As a full service company, we initiate an Integrated Wildlife Management Program beginning with an inspection and customer education, followed by removal of moles and repair of damage. TSWM provides habitat modification as another preventive technique. We strive for the most humane and environmentally effective techniques for dealing with wildlife problems. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s use of modern innovative methods provides sound wildlife management services to ensure the protection of our customers’ investments and health.

Tri-State Wildlife Management Skunk Removal Florence, KY

Crescent Springs, KY Skunk Removal: If you have an encounter with a skunk, it can be a bit unsettling. Skunks are notorious for emitting a strong, foul odor when they feel cornered or threatened. For that reason, people want to get away from a skunk just as much as the skunk wants to get away from them. If an animal or area has been sprayed by a skunk, it will linger for quite some time, and their musk can be smelled from a mile away.  This can make it difficult for businesses and homeowners to determine whether they actually have a skunk problem. So, how do you know if you have a skunk problem?  Customers typically call Tri-State Wildlife Management with a skunk problem either after smelling strong skunk spray or after seeing one. If you spot a skunk in your yard or if you smell a strong skunk spray coming from your property, you may have a skunk(s) denning nearby. Another possibility is that a skunk has died nearby, which would cause a continual foul odor until fully decomposed, which can take up to a couple of years.

Skunks typically live under man made structures such as porches, stoops, sheds, and decks. Sometimes, customers don’t even realize that there is a hole dug out from under the bottom of their porch for animal entry, and oftentimes even if they do, customers assume chipmunks are the culprit.

What should you do if a skunk has invaded your property? Call Northern Kentucky’s professional wildlife control company, Tri-State Wildlife Management, to help rid you of your problem. Not only will Tri-State Wildlife trap and remove unwanted skunks, but we will also exclude skunks from the den they were inhabiting. In addition, TSWM can make your property less attractive to skunks and other wildlife through habitat modification so that future wildlife problems can be prevented.

Tri-State Wildlife Management can take care of your skunk problem for you. Our courteous staff works for you to provide a cost effective solution to your skunk intrusion and/or damage issue. As a full service company, we initiate an Integrated Wildlife Management Program beginning with an inspection and customer education, followed by removal of intrusive skunks and repair of skunk damage. TSWM also offers skunk deodorizing services as well as prevention services, including habitat modification and barrier wall and fencing installation.
