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.

Covington, KY Squirrel Removal

For squirrel removal and exclusion in northern Kentucky, call Tri-State Wildlife Management at (859) 635-0037

Covington, KY Squirrel Removal and Exclusion: Are squirrels invading your home and eating away at your soffits and eves? Squirrels can be one of the most destructive home-intruding animals.  They often gnaw on wood, cables or electrical wiring and almost any stored item.  The gnawing of wire is perhaps the scariest damage they do – stripping the insulation from the wires increases the chances of a short and the risk of fire. If a female and young are denning in your attic or a crevice of your home, now is the perfect time to begin a removal and exclusion program. Juvenile squirrels are exploring outside of their den sites independently.  This means that if you have squirrels denning in your home, they can be removed through trapping instead of attempting to retrieve the young by hand. Just last week, extra precautions still had to be taken to ensure all juveniles were accounted for because of their lack of mobility. In addition to their ability to venture outside, mobility might also mean an increase in squirrel noises coming from your attic.

If you suspect squirrels are in your attic, hear noises in the attic or have squirrels crossing the roof, call Tri-State Wildlife Management.  We are experts in eliminating squirrel problems through our squirrel removal and exclusion services.  We can diagnose your problem, remove the squirrels, and provide the necessary repairs to cover holes and construction gaps that are allowing them entry into your home or business.

Bat Removal Florence, KY: Tri-State Wildlife Management offers bat removal, exclusion, and repair services to ensure that bats are gone for good.  TSWM also offers full attic cleanups after bats are removed and excluded.

Having bats in your home is an unsettling and serious problem, even if they are confined to the attic. Not only do they urinate and defecate anywhere they roost, causing staining and odor problems which are difficult to remove, they are associated with diseases which are dangerous to humans, including rabies and histoplasmosis (a lung disease caused by the spores of fungus which grow on their droppings or guano). Tri-State Wildlife Management will take care of your bat problem and make life normal again for you and your family.

While bats are very beneficial to humans because of their affinity for many flying insects, such as mosquitoes, if they find their way into your home and take up residence, they can also be some of the most destructive, dangerous, and expensive wildlife to control.

Since bats are a protected species, removal should be done by a trained professional, such as our trained technicians.  In addition, we perform repairs and/or restorations to your home or business to prevent re-entry. TSWM also offers partial and full attic cleanups after bat exclusion.

Tri-State Wildlife Management is a proud member of the National Wildlife Control Operators Association, and is certified Bat Standard Compliant by NWCOA.

Garden Mole Removal in Alexandria KY

If you have a garden mole problem in Northern Kentucky, call Tri-State Wildlife Management at (859) 635-0037. Put our experience and expertise to work for you!

Mole Removal Alexandria KY

Moles become quite a nuisance when they take up residence in your yard. Although you will never see a mole since they live exclusively underground, they very literally leave paths of destruction as evidence of their presence. They can dig at a rate of 18 feet per hour, so it doesn’t take long for them to noticeably damage your lawn. Moles have runways and burrows deep beneath the surface of your lawn, but they also have surface tunnels, which are shallow, underground paths used for hunting worms, insects, and grubs. Moles create ridges in your yard when tunneling just below the surface. You may also spot mole mounds, which are accumulated dirt from tunneling.

Moles do more damage than create unsightly ridges and mole mounds in your yard; they also kills grass and plants. When moles dig surface tunnels, it causes the roots to disengage from the surrounding soil. In the winter, the roots freeze from lack of insulation from the soil, killing the grass or plants. In the warmer months, the roots lose their access to the water from the soil. If not corrected, the the affected grass/plants die.

To take the guess work out of mole management, a trapping program should be implemented to ensure the violating mole can no longer be a nuisance. There are many home remedies that claim to rid your lawn or garden of moles, but there are no repellents or frightening devices that are proven effective (Internet Center for Wildlife Damage Management). If the mole isn’t removed, problems will continue to arise. Trapping is the most effective and safest method of mole control, therefore the method used by Tri-State Wildlife Management. Let us take care of your mole problem for you!

Mole Removal Villa Hills KY

Northern Kentuckians are familiar with the eastern mole, which is prevalent from the Atlantic coast to the Great Plains, and from Michigan into Florida. Moles live underground their entire lives in a network of underground runway tunnels and burrows. Moles are solitary animals, but on occasion their tunnels may intersect with the independent tunnels of another mole. Multiple moles may live underneath the same yard, and sometimes are trapped at the same spot. Moles have both deep tunnels that lead to their denning sites or nesting area, as well as shallow, surface tunnels that are used for feeding. Feeder tunnels may be used once and then left abandoned, while others may be used multiple times. Moles never have runways above ground. Homeowners usually realize they have a mole problem when they see raised grass from underground surface tunnels, or when they see mole mounds. Mole mounds are made when excess dirt is pushed out of the ground as a mole tunnels.

Moles are a nuisance when they occupy a yard, because their surface tunnels kill grass and plants, as well as leave unsightly raised ridges in the lawn. Plants and grass die from shallow surface tunnels because the roots are disengaged from the soil. In the warmer months, the plants and grass may die because they no longer have the soil as a source of water. During the winter, roots freeze from the lack of insulation soil provides.

Moles continuously dig in search of food, at a rate of eighteen feet per hour, and move forward and backward eighty feet per minute. They eat from 70% to 100% of their weight in earthworms and insects each day to supply the energy for constant tunneling. They prefer to hunt in cool, moist soil, where worms and insects can be found in abundance. Den sites are usually in high, dry ground, although deeper beneath the surface. Moles cover more underground area than most subterranean animals because of their food requirements. During the colder months, and during bouts of hot weather, moles dig deeper beneath the surface. So even during the winter when you may not see new ridges or mounds in your yard, moles continue to be active.

Yard Mole Removal

Are mole tunnels and mounds ruining your lawn or garden? For yard mole removal in Northern Kentucky, call Tri-State Wildlife Management at (859) 635-0037. Put our experience and expertise to work for you!

Although there are seven know species of moles in the US, Northern Kentuckians are 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. Moles can quickly wreak havoc on a lawn since they tunnel up to eighteen feet per hour and move forward and backward eighty feet per minute in the tunnel. 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.  Moles are opportunistic feeders and consume almost any insect they find. Many people believe that treating their lawn will solve their mole problem, but this isn’t the case, since earthworms are the main component of their diet. Insects including grubs, ants and ant larva make up their diet as well.  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.

Mole Removal Ft. Mitchell KY

The old saying “Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill” was clearly coined by someone who never had a mole problem in their yard! Moles can be very destructive to a lawn, and it can be difficult to rid your property of them. Moles create both deep tunnels that are undetectable, as well as surface tunnels, which are very shallow. In addition, as moles tunnel and move dirt out of their way, they can create mounds of dirt at the surface. Moles tunnel up to eighteen feet per hour and move forward and backward eighty feet per minute in the tunnel. During bouts of hot or cold temperatures, moles continue to make more deep tunnels, so even though you didn’t see mole activity during the winter, they were just as active, but undetectable. Moles are opportunistic feeders and consume almost any insect they find. Earthworms are the main component of their diet; however, insects including grubs, ants and ant larva make up their diet as well.

Moles are unwanted guests in a yard  because their surface tunnels and dirt mounds are unsightly. More importantly, mole tunneling kills plants and grass. Soil insulates plant roots, and when roots become disengaged from tunneling, cold weather freezes the roots, thus killing the plant or grass. In addition, during the warmer months, roots will dry out without having access to water in the soil. To have your mole problem taken care of sooner rather than later, Call Tri-State Wildlife Management today at (859) 635-0037.

Groundhog Trapping and Removal

March 31st, 2016

For effective groundhog, mole, skunk, chipmunk, snake, or mouse removal in Northern KY, call Tri-State Wildlife Management at (859) 635-0037.

If you have a groundhog problem or have had one in the past year, now is the time to trap groundhogs and remove them. Groundhogs are difficult to trap in late spring and early summer because trapping bait must compete with delicious, readily-available food from gardens, flowerbeds, yards, etc. Fresh food is much more enticing than bait, which can never stay as fresh. At this time of year, a groundhog’s food sources are limited, so we are more successful in luring them into a trap with bait.

Groundhog Trapping Alexandria, KY

Groundhogs/Woodchucks

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.
