This female beaver and her mate entered the property of an office complex in Alpharetta and began the cutting down vegetation for the dam building process. The dam backed up water flow of the creek making a pond 300 feet by 700 feet and 4 feet deep. This took about 2 months. By the end of the third month, another dam was built 800 feet downstream, it was only about 220 feet by 500 feet and 3 feet deep.
After cutting down smaller trees, the beavers started damage to larger trees like this one. At the chewed point, this tree was considerably bigger than a basketball. Once the flooding starts, the natural vegetation dies out, leaving room for aquatic vegetation, animals and insects. This can include a variety of snake problems along with mosquitoes capable of spreading the West Nile Virus; remember, the water here becomes almost stagnant.
Even though the average possum is about the size of a house cat, they start very small and change very little. This size possum can easily get in crawl spaces and enter the living areas through man made openings left that way during original construction. These openings will be where plumbing pipes, wires and ac duct work run between floors and walls.
Here I am posing for the camera and having fun. This coyote was caught ¼ mile northeast of Tucker high school. Coyotes have a unique ability to rapidly acclimate to a variety of habitats. A coyote displaying abnormal behavior and appearing fearless of humans is uncharacteristic and may mean the animal is injured or has fallen victim to a disease such as rabies, parvovirus, or distemper. In this case, it is in the coyote’s and humans best interest to euthanize the animal to prevent further spread of the disease and relieve the suffering of the infected animal.
These flying squirrel were inside this chimney cavity surrounding the flume. Flying squirrels are more rat like in that they are nocturnal, very communal, and love to tunnel and burrow thorough blown-in insulation. At maturity, they are about 4 inches long and weigh 2 or 3 ounces, most of which is fat and fur. Flying squirrels climb to the tops of trees and prepare for launch. Upon leaving the tree, flying squirrels will get 3 feet of forward movement for every foot of drop. So a flying squirrel at 70 feet in a pine tree can easily glide thorough the air 200+ feet to land on your roof.
This pregnant female gray squirrel attempted to enter this building through an opening left by an electrical contractor. The squirrel got stuck in the opening and died, creating an odor problem. Rats and squirrels are constantly trying to get into structures through any opening. 95% to 98% of the exclusion repairs we do are man made openings the animals simply take advantage of. A very small part of exclusion repair openings are made by animals.
Waterfowl are pretty to look at and fun to feed, however, they create many problems for property owners. Canada geese do not digest food the same as humans, their food goes from beak to butt in about 2 minutes. Their urine and feces are very unsightly on lawns and sidewalks, and quite often create unsanitary and unsafe lawns areas. In addition to lawn areas, the excess nitrogen in fecal matter can leach into ponds killing the natural aquatic life while simultaneously contaminating the water. The droppings when walked on, can disperse into microscopic spores in an aerosol manner, initiating a variety of allergies. These aerosol spores are worse on people with weakened immune systems (young kids/infants, senior citizens, pregnant women, and anyone who is sick or in an unhealthy state).
Both cats in the picture have mange. Feral cats look just like your typical house cats, however, they are strays or abandoned, and more often than not, diseased and or infected. It is usually cost prohibited to trap, neuter, and release feral cats, and additionally, these cats frequently require a variety of medical treatments, who pays for this. Even if a feral cat is trapped, neutered , and released, it is extremely likely to return to a life with other feral cats, thus re-exposing itself to disease and parasites from other feral cats. Because of these diseases, feral cats are euthanized as prescribed by law through Georgia Department of Natural Resources. As cruel as this may seem, it really is the most humane way to dispose of these diseased animals. One aspect of wildlife management is about protecting people and animals from sick and diseased animals in such a manner that allows for a healthy environment.
