Squirrels are so common-place in North Carolina you probably don’t even notice them. When you see one it’s almost invariably the eastern gray squirrel – that long, gray rodent with the thick, bushy tail.

Deer on your Property in the Triangle?

  • 0 Comments
A deer’s life follows a particular pattern. During the summer, deer are often lazy and lounge around in one place they consider safe.

It’s entirely possible you’ve spent your entire life as a resident of the great North State – or you’ve recently moved here and just love the region – and all you’ve ever seen or heard of cicadas are their exoskeletons on pine trees in the front yard or the hum of their song on summer […]

You might not initially think about it, but if you enjoy watching birds at your feeders throughout the fall and winter season, early fall is actually a great time to start stocking bird feed.

When’s the last time you took a good, close look at your home’s foundation and crawl space? If you’re looking around sheepishly or simply can’t remember the last time you checked the crawlspace for anything besides the neighbor’s missing cat, now would be a good time to do so.

Beware Flying Foxes and Rabies Risks

  • 0 Comments
At Critter Control, we understand how important it is, especially in a region of suburban style neighborhoods sharing space with so many wooded areas, to be aware of the risks of rabies in wild animals. And, with the apex of summer’s heat upon us, it’s even more likely for animal behaviors to fluctuate, making it […]

Durham Bulls’ Bats = Good, Your Attic’s Bats = Not So Good

  • 0 Comments
Summer has a way of bringing out the bats. If you’d been to the DBAP this summer with the family or friends, you’ve already gotten a taste of the kind of bats we like to see in the Triangle area (and you’ve also hopefully enjoyed a corn dog or four). And, if you and your […]
