||Squirrels can cause
extensive damage to attic insulation or walls and gnaw on electrical
wires in homes and vehicles, creating a fire hazard. They damage
trees, flowers, lawns, gardens, vehicles and homes. They eat
acorns, nuts, fruit or vegetables in home gardens and become
a nuisance at bird feeders. Fox squirrels damage attics by chewing
through electrical wires and soiling or tearing insulation.
Evidence of fox and
gray squirrels inside attics include noise from gnawing or running
during the day. In contrast, flying squirrels and rats can be heard
squeaking and making noise during the night Fox and Gray squirrels
are most active in morning and late afternoon Gray squirrels are
about 17 to 19 inches while Fox squirrels are about 18 to 24 inches
long. Flying squirrels are most active at night are much smaller
(9 to 10 inches). Adult fox squirrels breed during December and
January, and sometimes again in early summer. Control measures include
Exclusion & Replacing after trapping. Use their keen sense of smell
to locate their hidden booty, they can't always find all of the
seeds and nuts they bury. In fact, 10 - 20% of nuts are lost. That
means squirrels play a major role in tree propagation since the
missing seeds can sprout and grow into new trees and shrubs.

is the most common bat in North America, the longest living
mammal for their size in the world, can grow exponentially,
nocturnal emerge at dusk to find their evening meal. Eat insects,
moths, wasps, beetles, and mosquitoes. Live near standing water
where insects - like mosquitoes - tend to lay their eggs, if
not available move into man-made roosting areas, like attics.

bad eyesight, but they use echolocation to 'see' their surroundings
and locate prey. Bats make high-pitched sounds that echo back when
the sound waves hit an obstacle. Make chirps and scratching.
||Opossums are usually
about the size of a small cat with a greyish brown coat and
a white face. They have long, hairless tails, ears and noses.
Although they can defend themselves using their 50 teeth, they
are basically harmless, causing little damage and posing little
threat to humans. Eat flexible diet which makes them successful
survivors in diverse locations. They eat carrion, insects, frogs,
birds, snakes, garbage, compost and pet food. Opossums can't
Can cause damage
by taking up residence under houses, in pipes, attics, and crevices.
Opossums can breed quickly and give birth to a very large number
of young (up to 13). When threatened, they will 'play possum" mimicking
the appearance/smell of a dead animal. Their stiff, curled form
can be prodded, turned over or carried away. The animal will regain
consciousness after a period of minutes or hours and then escape.
striped skunk occupies a variety of habitats, including fields,
woodlands and urban locations. In urban and suburban locations
they are quite at home under porches, decks, and sheds. The
skunk may excavate its own burrow, also take over the burrows
of woodchucks or foxes. Skunks are normally nocturnal. They
spend the day sleeping in dark locations such as burrows or
under porches etc. and exit in the evening to search for food.
Their presence usually
becomes apparent only when the odour is released at real or imagined
danger, as a last resort by arching its back, raising its tail high
in the air, turning its back toward the enemy, and stomping its
They are omnivores,
with small rodents, insects, and seasonal fruits, eat the eggs and
young of ground-nesting birds and regularly dig up turtle eggs and
the nest of yellow-jacket wasps. A favourite insect food is the
grubs of Japanese beetle and June beetles, which feed on the roots
of lawn grasses. Also fond of garbage and pet food set outside.
Skunks are polygamous,
meaning they mate more than one member of the opposite sex. In the
northeast, the breeding season begins in February and lasts through
March. After mating, the male leaves the female and takes no part
in the raising the young. Four to eight young are born between late
April and early June after a gestation period of 62 to 68 days.
The young are born helpless, blind, and hairless, although the striped
pattern is distinguishable on their bodies. Their eyes open at about
22 days and at six to eight weeks weaning begins and the young forage
for food with the mother. For more information on how to get rid

most common type of rat found in Ontario is known as the Norway
rat. This was accidentally introduced to North America by boats
arriving from Europe. These rats are also called the brown rat,
house rat, barn rat, sewer rat, and many other names. These
rodents are found in and around homes, on farms and in warehouses.
The rat is not a picky eater and will consume any type of garbage,
will eat pet food, bird food, and more.
The rat usually makes
its nest at or near ground level. The nest may be made of ground
up paper, cloth, leaves and other materials. Burrowing activity
and gnawing will damage electrical, water pipes, insulation, walls,
and almost anything they can get their teeth into. Rats also carry
diseases including salmonellosis, leptospirosis and ratbite fever.

five dark stripes on their backs. Eats nuts, acorns, seeds,
mushrooms, berries, insects, bird's eggs, and snails but they're
also avid hoarders, storing nuts and seeds for winter survival.
Chipmunks construct extensive burrows which can be up to 3.5m

well-connected entrances. If chipmunks are burrowing in your lawn,
or hoarding from your garden, they can be an unwelcome nuisance.
