Raccoons are easy to recognize with their distinctive black mask and ringed tail. Adults range from 10 lbs on up, with some reaching over 40lbs. They can live up to 12 years in the wild, though average life spans average closer to 5-6 years. Raccoons mate in the winter, around December, and the females give birth to an average of 3-5 young. A mother raccoon is very protective of its litter of 3-5 young, usually born in the spring time. Like many mammals, they are primarily nocturnal, though some people spot them during the day,
Moles are small, weighing only about 3 oz. and is about 6 inches long. They live for about 2-3 years. They breed in January, and after a 45 day pregnancy, give birth to 2-4 young. The Townsend's Mole (Scapanus townsendii) is larger, at about 5 oz. and 8 inches long. Breeding is similar to other moles. The Star-Nosed Mole (Condylura cristata) is yet another potentially destructive mole species.
Opossums look somewhat like giant rats, with their pointed snouts and skinny, naked tails. They are in fact North America's only marsupial (like kangaroos, they raise their young in a pouch). Adults average 10-14 lbs. They don't live very long, rarely more than two years, three max. They mate in January, and then the tiny young climb into the pouch and grow, then cling to the mother's back, then drop off and lead a life on their own. Opossums are omnivores, which means that they eat anything.
Skunks The Striped Skunk (Mephitis mephitis) weighs from 4-10 pounds and is 24-30 inches long. Skunks are easy to recognize with their distinct black and white coloring. The Striped Skunk has two white bands that run from the head and down each side of the back. They do not form long partnerships, and mate in late February, and young are born in May. A litter may be five or six young. They follow the mother around, and after they are a year old, they depart to live on their own.
Squirrels are usually gray, sometimes red, brown, or black. Adults average about one pound in weight. They can supposedly live for up to ten years, but life expectancy in the wild probably isn't more than 3-4 years. Squirrels give birth to two litters per year - one in late summer, and one in winter. The female gives birth to 3-4 young after a 44 day gestation, and the young grow quickly, and are weaned in about ten weeks.
Armadillos There's really only one way to go about it. You've got to catch the armadillos and relocate them off the property. There's no other good approach that I know of. Maybe having a big, scary dog would help. But otherwise, this is a nocturnal animal that comes along into your yard or landscaping for just a short time every night or so, and digs a bunch of holes while looking for earthworms and grubs. There is no effective repellent that'll keep them away,
Birds are usually classified as a pest species due to their habit of ripping apart lawns and landscaping, and worse, leaving behind large amounts of very big droppings. The most common complaints include the following:
Feral Pigs are usually classified as a pest species because they will completely destroy a lawn. I mean, it looks like a rototiller went through your yard. Pigs root through the dirt in search of food, and there's no stopping them. The most common complaints include the following:
...I guess that's it.
For these reasons, many people wish to have nuisance feral pig trapped and removed.
FERS Incorporated was able to remove all the Raccoons and permanently prevent them from coming back again. I am now able to have a good nights sleep without being kept up all night by
unwanted animals in my yard!"
