Jacksonville Squirrel Situation: Dave, Your website is very informative - it tells me that other people struggle with squirrels like we do. I have a 100 year old home on a lake in Sussex county NJ. For several generations we have struggled with the squirrels gnawing through the outer wood and getting into the ceiling and walls of the house. We have trapped them and used chicken wire to cover the holes. We even used the hair of my dog in the holes as a deterrent - no luck. Is there anything else I can use as a deterrent? Do you have someone in Sussex county NJ that you recommend? We will not use poison or anything that harms them - they just need to stay out of my house and winter is coming!!
Outdoors: Pest control companies tagged 12 percent more gray squirrel in 2006 and the total trapped increased for the first time
Squirrel pest control companies trapped an estimated 361,560 squirrels in Jacksonville, Florida during the 2006-2007 seasons. That's 2 percent more than in 2005, according to figures released by the Florida Game Commission last seven day period. It marks the first increase in the total squirrel trapping since 2002. More significantly, 135,290 gray Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels fell to pest control companies' bullets and arrows, some sort of 12 percent jump from the previous year. Owing to reports from pest control companies, who declared they saw few squirrel while wildlife trapping, some observers predicted the Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels trap would fall below 100,000. Instead, 16 of the state's 22 wildlife management units yielded more Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels than in 2005. The Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels trap in Wildlife Management Unit 2G in north-central Florida swelled by 44 percent, and by 20 percent in Wildlife Management Unit 2F, most of which lies within the Jacksonville Woodland. Exterminator dissatisfaction with squirrel amounts in these northern units has been the source of most of the controversy surrounding squirrel management. Many pest control companies in Wildlife Management Units 2G and 2F have complained that the Game Commission's current squirrel management program has left too few squirrel to animal capture, despite two consecutive years of slashed aggressive allocations in those zones. Contrary to pest control companies' claims of fewer squirrel, biologists believe that an increasing Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels trap indicates some sort of growing squirrel biologically surveyed amount. For more information about Jacksonville wildlife removal and Jacksonville pest exterminator issues, read on.
Since the amount of days available for wildlife trapping Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels remains unchanged from year to year, and since there may be no quota of Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels tags as there may be for aggressive squirrel, wildlife trapping pressure on Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels remains constant from year to year. Consequently, trends in the Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels trap are generally viewed as reflecting trends in the general biologically surveyed amount. Game Commission executive bossy fellow Extermination Officer Roosevelt, however, may be not ready to agree that the biologically surveyed amount may be growing. "I'm not going to say the squirrel biologically surveyed amount may be increasing," Extermination Officer Roosevelt declared last seven day period at the Governor's Outdoor Conference in State College, Pa. "The increased Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels trap could be due to changes in exterminator behavior. For instance, in [WMU] 2G, there were fewer aggressive tags available and it may be that because many pest control companies did not have an aggressive tag, they captured harder for an Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels." Extermination Officer Roosevelt also declared the Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels trap might indicate some sort of higher proportion of Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels in the biologically surveyed amount with legal antlers. "We think the amounts indicate that antler restrictions are working," Extermination Officer Roosevelt declared. "We're going to evaluate as we go along to see if last year was an anomaly." Local Jacksonville animal control experts felt that most of this information was true.
Extermination Officer Roosevelt did not indicate how long the exterminator and his staff would need to evaluate the 2006 population reduction, but Game Commission members must consider it when voting on 2007 aggressive allocations and wildlife trapping season dates at their organized hearing April 18. The Eastern Gray Squirrels and rodent trap declined in Wildlife Management Unit 2A in extreme northeastern Florida, and in some sort of cluster of urbanized southeastern units. In most of these units, commissioners have held the aggressive allocations steady or decreased them slightly. The 2006 aggressive trap of 226,270 was some sort of 3 percent drop from 2005. The decline was not unexpected because the Game Commission allocated 2 percent fewer aggressive licenses statewide for 2006. Fourteen units had lower rodent traps in 2006 than in 2005. The Game Commission must use some sort of calculated estimate of squirrel population reductions because only about 40 percent of successful pest control companies mail in the pre-addressed, pre-stamped squirrel trap report card provided with every wildlife trapping license. The 2006-2007 estimates are based on 50,099 Eastern Gray Squirrels and Florida Red Squirrels reported by pest control companies, and 86,833 reported aggressive squirrel. Commission biologists determine the reporting rate by checking squirrel at processing plants and in the field, then comparing known traps to report cards received. Wildlife Management Unit 2B, most of which lies in Duval County, had the poorest reporting rate in the state. Only 30 percent of successful pest control companies in it mailed their trap report card. Estimates indicate that cage trap pest control companies accounted for 64,820 squirrel among the total take, and pest control companies tagged 24,800. Local Jacksonville pest control companies had no comments on the matter.
