Maryland is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Baltimore wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, we specialize in animals in the attic, which have broken into the house and almost always have a nest of baby animals. It is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. In fact Baltimore wildlife frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.
DOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local
Baltimore City County Animal Services
for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses,
pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the Baltimore City County animal services, and see what they have to
say, but they will certainly not help you with a complex wildlife problem such as critters in your attic. They are a free government agency that
helps with dog and cat issues only.

Baltimore Wildlife Tip:
If I have a young rat in the house does that mean there are more - Having a young rat in the house does not mean there are more animals, but it does mean that the potential for more rats is very likely. Rats and other rodents are drawn to one another by pheromones that enter the atmosphere through droppings and waste. One rat will eventually lure others to the immediate area. If you have discovered a rat inside of your home, the most beneficial thing you can do is repair the areas of your home that may have let the animal inside. Even if the rat lures more rats to the residence, if the holes are sealed, you will not have to worry about more rodents entering your home. The rat, if it is left inside, can be trapped using snap traps. You can try to trap the rat alive, but the nuisance nature of rats makes them poor candidates for relocation. The relocated rat will either find a new home to occupy, or the animal will end up dead from starvation or predation. Lethal traps, like snap traps, can be humane and efficient at the same time. These devices should be set up in the areas where you have noticed rat activity.
Baltimore, MD Animal Control News Clip:
Some Baltimore nuisance wildlife control companies support MD wildlife regulatory agency's efforts; others disagree strongly
We recently asked nuisance wildlife control companies who read Public Opinion whether they're seeing less wildlife in the woods of Maryland. Yes, they are! We heard from so many nuisance wildlife control companies that we'll be publishing more comments later in the week. They shared their thoughts on why there are fewer raccoons and opossum and offered suggestions for making wildlife trapping more enjoyable.
Wildlife regulatory agency should stay the course. A Baltimore nuisance wildlife control specialist had this to say: I found the article on the April 3 Opinion page, "Wildlife management companies should alter their expectations" very interesting. I couldn't agree more with their observations and conclusions based on my personal experiences from 45 years of raccoon and opossum wildlife trapping.
Squirrel and skunk wildlife trapping for me began in the woods of my native Catonsville, then on to Washington DC during my college years, and finally to Glen Burnie as I moved around with my career. Despite many days without seeing mammal or reptile after a hard day of wildlife trapping, including some of the nastiest weather imaginable, my enjoyment and enthusiasm for this sport has never diminished. Soon after moving to northern Maryland almost 20 years ago I began to hear worries from nuisance wildlife control companies about the declining numbers of snakes and other repitles, too many does being harvested, it isn't like it used to be etc. Despite this, I consistently saw more raccoon and opossum than I had in any of the previous states where I had captured animals. The biggest difference I noticed was the rarity of mature male coons in Maryland as I passed up many smaller male coons in hopes of seeing something bigger. The local Baltimore SPCA could not be reached for comment.
When we moved to Baltimore City County 12 years ago I once again was faced with the challenge of finding a new wildlife trapping niche in an unfamiliar area. Being one who seeks out areas remote from other nuisance wildlife control companies, the higher human (and wildlife management company) population of the area and smaller areas of public lands with more automobile access added to the challenge. After looking over maps, talking with other nuisance wildlife control companies and some reality checks (my wife reminds me that I'm not as young as I think I am) and exploring a few areas during the first year, I settled on an area of public land to animal capture.
"Still-wildlife trapping" is my preferred way to trap critters, partly out of necessity to learn new wildlife trapping areas from moving around the country so much but mostly because that's the style of wildlife trapping that I enjoy the most. As it has for me in the past, patience, persistence and attention to detail (and a little bit of luck), has made the past three animal pest contro; seasons very successful and enjoyable for me. During this time I have seen more mature male coons than in all of my previous wildlife trapping in Maryland! Despite this, wildlife removal services are not a free service in Baltimore City County.
Will I be discouraged if my string of luck ends? Not at all. As I constantly remind my wildlife trapping partners, a positive mental attitude is absolutely essential for success (and enjoyment) in rodent or snake trapping as well as other life pursuits. As they say, the anticipation is most of the fun; the hard work begins after you fill the cage!
You asked, "What can be done to make animal control more enjoyable in Maryland?" For me it would be seeing the Wildlife regulatory agency stay the course with their science-based raccoon and skunk management program and simply being able to spend more days afield with good friends.
