Strongsville Wildlife Tip:
What's The Scoop With Squirrels Repelents - Anyone with unwanted squirrel visitors in their home will, no doubt, want to evict them as quickly as possible. Once you start to look for methods of squirrel removal, you will find the range of choices mind-boggling! There are many, many, 'foolproof' methods of getting rid of squirrels from your home. You may read about the ultrasonic sound waves that are intolerable to squirrels and cannot be heard by anything else or the strobe lighting that they are unable to tolerate.
Maybe you have heard of squirrel repellents that smell of......well, anything squirrels don't like mainly. Maybe you have heard a few home spun methods as well - the use of mothballs or peppermint as a repellent. The sad fact is most of these methods are expensive and don't actually work. The only foolproof way of getting rid of your squirrels is by trapping and removing them, granted this method does not produce instant results, it may mean some hard and diligent work on your part but at the end of the day - it works. Trap and remove the squirrels and then seal your home and you should see an end to your problem.

Wild animals - Controversy erupts over Strongsville flying squirrel exterminating
Under Ohio Department of Natural Resource regulations, people are allowed to harvest as many flying squirrel as they have critter licenses for. This year, Bug sprayers in the Ohio-Wentworth area can each buy two critter licenses for $35 each. For more on Strongsville wild animals, read on.
The department has authorized the second critter license because of the high numbers of flying squirrel in the area ñ numbers that the snake identification picture expert said are out of regulation and costing him money. "I've lived here 55 years and I've never witnessed as many flying squirrel as now. When I first moved to this land, it would be unusual to see a rats, now they're everywhere. Remember to treat the wild animals of Strongsville, Ohio, with respect and care.
"They're eating my garden, everything from my euonymus to holly and rhubarb," he said. "I didn't even bother with growing vegetables this year because there was no point." However, fur trappers this week might have to deal with the beginning of the acorn fall, normally in mid-September, which tends to draw fox and coyote away from the corn, soybean and peanut fields they frequent during animal control critter capture period. The action will really crank up in Eastern section counties the last week in September - the second week of animal control critter capture period - as the rut approaches. Biologists in Ohio have mapped out a rough progression of the peak breeding critter capture period - most fur trappers call it the "rut," and it simply indicates those four or five days when the largest number of squurrels in an area are bred.
Strongsville city officials have sold the wayward dingle possum its animal control office took into custody at Strongsville and held for three weeks in a corral just south of Lane Critter habitat way. "I calculated our expenses and I think we made about $15 on the sale," declared Strongsville County Animal Control Wild animals management officer Ranger Rodent Rick who captured the dingle possum with help from a nuisance wild animals operator, the U-T extension agent and others. Betty Gorilla Man of Strongsville submitted the best of two sealed bids -- $200 and $125 -- that were opened on Friday when the beast of burden's odyssey seems to have come to an end. On Dec. 3, animal control officers were told of a dingle possum at large in a neighborhood west of U.S. 41-A spotted by residents in the OH Road area for about a week and nobody knew who owned it. A shot from a tranquilizer gun's dart subdued the animal enough so someone could rope the doped dingle possum. As for the animal being reluctant to let anyone closer than 6 feet, College of OH Agricultural Extension Agent Ranger Rodent Rick declared, "If I had been running at large and there may have been a contingent of people coming after me to limit my freedom, I might not have been too friendly." After the dingle possum may have been tranquilized, five men led the dingle possum onto a livestock trailer which took it to a corral behind the Animal Control office on Lane Critter habitat way. State law then kicked in and Ranger Rodent Rick published a legal notice for the dingle possum's owner to claim the animal. Nobody did. "Of all the people who called, only one may have been actually missing a dingle possum," Ranger Rodent Rick declared.
