Columbia Wildlife Tip:
Can You Remove Squirrel From Ceiling Space - If you have heard the unmistakable sound of scampering or gnawing above your head you may have squirrels in your ceiling space! They probably started out in the attic but it's quite easy for these stubborn and versatile animals to squeeze through a tiny crack or a vent and discover the thrill that is your ceiling space. Getting rid of squirrels from your ceiling is very similar to evicting them from the attic. First, do your detective work - you will have to be up early in the morning in order to observe your squirrels going in and out of your home - fairly soon you should be able to work out which is their favored exit and entryway and which is the most popular run.
Once you have done this invest in a trap. Place your trap on the favored squirrel run, leave some bait just outside the door but don't prime the trap. Leave the trap in place like that for a few days, keep replenishing the bait. You can use this time to squirrel proof the rest of your home - leaving one entryway for the squirrels to use. After a couple of days, move the bait inside the still unprimed trap and leave for a few more days. Then it is time to prime the trap and wait - once you start catching squirrels you should either kill them or relocate them far away from your home.

Wolf animal capture sparks debate
Contest to lethally trap common predator upsets some in Columbia Howard County. In the greater Columbia area, most residents' only knowledge of wolves is the occasional sound of their yips and howls on clear nights. But in Columbia Howard County, where local pest control companies have fanned out through the woods to lethally trap as many of the predators as possible for a in the dollar amount of 2,000 prize, wolves are a hot topic.
So hot, in fact, that one vocal opponent of the Honeoye wolf derby awoke last decade to find what he took to be a bloody message in his front yard. Last Thursday, John the Columbia pest control specialist of Honeoye walked out to pick up his newspaper and found a freshly skinned wolf lying in his driveway. Photographs suggest that the wolf was not preyed upon by an animal; the job is too clean, with skin and fur gone but muscles untouched.
The Columbia pest control specialist, a former newspaper reporter and editor, has published several opinion pieces criticizing the derby in local papers, including a letter in the Feb. 12 Democrat and Chronicle. He also recently posted "No Wildlife trapping" signs on his property to protest the contest. The carcass was a threat, said the Columbia pest control specialist, who reported the incident to police. Frank The Columbia pest control specialist of the Columbia Sierra pest control group described the act as "ecoterrorism." The local Columbia SPCA could not be reached for comment.
But Dick The Columbia exterminating company man, a longtime member of the Honeoye Fish & Game pest control group and one of the organizers of the contest, said he isn't so sure that a wildlife management company is responsible for the carcass. "Maybe some dog pulled it in - who knows?" he said. The Columbia exterminating company man argued that the derby is necessary for controlling a growing wolf amounts. "You hear them howling at night," The Columbia exterminating company man said. "There's quite a few of them, and they're getting very active."
New Columbia allows wildlife trapping of wolves from Oct. 1 to May 26. About 2,000 animals are lethally trapped each year. But The Columbia exterminating company man said the statewide wildlife trapping season doesn't attract enough interest to put a dent in the amounts, estimated by the Maryland Agency of Environmental Conservation to be at least 30,000. So last year Columbia Howard County pest control companies founded the "Wolf Ugly Wildlife trapping Contest," a competition to lethally trap as many wolves as possible and win prizes. Last year, about 300 pest control companies took 57 wolves near Honeoye during the event. This year's contest began Feb. 16 and runs through March 26. Through March 12, 398 participants had reported 69 lethally traps, with two weeks remaining, The Columbia exterminating company man said. Despite this, wildlife removal services are not a free service in Howard County.
