Pigs are prolific breeders. They breed year-long in tropical regions. Females may reach sexual maturity as young as six months of age, and may produce two or more litters of 4-12 piglets every year.
Feral hog numbers are on the rise in the United States. Likewise the problems they cause are also growing. With attention on this invasive species, many myths are circulating about feral hog history, distribution, biology, and damage. The following bullets will help get the facts straight.
History and Distribution
January 21st is National Squirrel Appreciation day. Here are few fun facts about squirrels:
There are over 250 species of squirrels in the world but the ones we deal with the most in Georgia are the grey squirrel and the flying squirrel. Grey squirrels are notorious for chewing into the attic areas of homes. They will chew on almost anything. Like mentioned above their teeth grow at an alarming rate. This continuous growth is what causes them to chew on things other than just food sources. We have seen homes where rafters and wall studs were rounded off due to chewing. We have also seen electrical wiring chewed through and even attic vent fans with chew damage to the aluminum fan blades. We have even seen a suit case that had chew damage all the way around it!
If you hear scratching or chewing sounds in your attic, give us a call at 706-445-4300 to schedule your wildlife inspection.
