Here at Abolish Pest control, we are an environmentally caring company. We do not harm animals such as Raccoons, Bats, Pigeons, Opossums
or other types of animal pests. We use professional traps with a
self triggering mechanism that captures the animal unharmed. Once captured
all animals are safely released into the wilderness away from homes. All cages contain an adequate amount of food and water until they can be released. It may be several hours before the animal is released which is why it is important for the customer to report to abolish so the animal may be released quickly.
Live-trapping animals is a safe and humane way to allow Abolish to decontaminate and proof.
Steps to Trapping Proper identification of your target is
vital for a successful trapping. We first identify the pest and
the location. Then all traps are strategically located to capture
the targeted pest.
The raccoon can be recognized by its notorious black mask and tail
with black rings. Adult raccoons can be up to 3 feet long and weigh
between 10 to 60 pounds. Raccoons have a whitish gray coat. This
fur is long and dense, a grizzled brown and black color that has
often been described as "salt and pepper". The tail can
grow to be fifteen inches and may have five to seven black rings
Although, raccoons are carnivores
and have long canine teeth, their molar teeth are adapted for a varied
diet which includes more than just meat. They have sharp claws so
they can climb trees eat birds and open shell fish like clams and
oysters. Raccoons are mostly nocturnal animals yet they are seen in
This is the only marsupial in North America. A body length of 12
to 24 inches and its tail 9 to 20 inches. Not the largest marsupial
weighing in at less than 15 pounds and with a life span of only
2 to 3 years; no wonder he is a nocturnal creature. They are scavengers
of the night looking for food and a place to spend the night. They can eat anything and do so. But
caution any food left out specially cat, and dog food will attract
them to your home. About the only benefit to you as a home owner
is that they sometimes control your rodent problems. A sticky critter

Skunks can be found near forests, bushes, Holes, and under buildings.
They release a strong stench from a gland as a defense against any
attackers. usually identified by their 2 white stripes on the back.
They are about the same size as a house cat.
Trapping skunks can be difficult because of their odor defense. Minimizing their smell is everyone's concern.
Pigeons may be live-trapped on buildings and other likely locations.
Live-traps for pigeons are available. Pre-baiting the traps with
grains that the birds are accustomed to will increase success. A
variety of baits, including cracked corn, millet, popcorn, sunflower
seeds, peas, bread, and peanuts can be used. Water is available
in the trap at all times. Trapping in any given area will usually
reduce the number of pigeons quickly and humanely, it is labor intensive,
and most of the time a great reduction measure.
Squirrels are clever and persistent critters and can be a nuisance when they turn your attic, crawlspace, or interior walls into their home. Especially in an area with a dense squirrel population, Squirrel proofing is essential in keeping squirrels as well as other pests out. The only effective way to remove squirrels from your attic or home is by trapping or by one-way trap doors which let the squirrel out but not in. After which proofing should be done. After trapping, Squirrels are released to a remote area alongside a source of water such as a river or pond.
Squirrel's teeth grow continuously which is why they need to chew on a variety of hard objects. Sometimes Squirrels chew on power lines or power cords causing power outages or fire hazards- especially in the attic. *** WE DO NOT TRAP SQUIRRELS THAT ARE RUNNING ACROSS THE YARD, OR ON YOUR FENCE. ONLY SQUIRRELS THAT ARE ACTUALLY INSIDE YOUR HOME***
