Nebraska is a state nestled in the arms of the Great Plains. While it may appear mostly flat, it does have a region of rolling grasslands in the east, carved into the landscape by retreating glaciers thousands of years ago. Despite the slight elevations in land, the state is primarily tree-less prairie. It is known as one of the most predominantly rural states, and is one of the least populated in the country. The climate is typically warm and humid, but it does experience cool to cold winters. Due to the lack of variance in much of the region, violent weather is inevitable, and the state sits in what is known as “Tornado Alley”. It is not uncommon for there to be daily thunderstorm with fierce winds and damaging hail.
Animals in the state are more varied than might be expected from what seems like a one-note habitat. In reality, while the majority of the region is thick grass, there are forests and waterways—it is not just a sea of prairie. Animals that call this place home include large ones like black bears, elk, mountain lions, coyotes, mule deer, pronghorns, white-tailed deer, and bighorn sheep. While the majority of these large grazers enjoy the eastern region of the state, they are found distributed through the entirety of Nebraska.
Smaller animals, including those of a nuisance nature, are also at home in the region. There are numerous rodents, including the intelligent prairie dog. This little animal can live in a network of tunnels that stretched for miles through the grasslands. They can have “cities” of thousands, and can communicate in such a complex language they can tell one another the size, speed, and direction of an enemy. Prairie dogs are one of the largest hurdles farmers face. The tunnel systems create a danger for livestock and machinery. A cow with a broken leg from tripping in a collapsed tunnel will need to be put down. Aside from the prairie dogs, there are other animals like raccoons, mink, muskrats, otters, foxes, rabbits and squirrels.
The black-footed ferret is an endangered animal that lives in Nebraska, and it is considered to be the most endangered animal in North America. Because of its unique coloration, it was widely sought after by the fur industry.

Rodent unwanted critter catching most effective time for wildlife trapping brings pest control exterminator acquaintances. One of the best things about the rodent-unwanted critter catching most effective time for wildlife trapping is getting to see some longtime pest control exterminator acquaintances who come here to control pest animals every year. We welcome them with open arms, not just because we get to see them but also because we hope they help in the need to reduce the over-number of unwanted wild animals of rodent in our suburban neighborhoods houses. There are two does who regularly use our yard as their path from the suburban neighborhoods houses to the fields across the road, one on each side of the house. And it seems that every year, at least one of them produces twins. So by the end of the summer, there are fawns who use the grass out here as their big playground, chasing each other back and forth. I keep an aluminum pie tin at each door of the house so I can scare them away, hopefully training them that our yard is not rodent-pest control exterminator acquaintance. It is some sort of futile effort, as they spend some time staring at me with my pie tin before they finally retreat. And it doesn't keep them from eating the squirrel baits and trees in the yard as soon as we aren't looking. My two pest control exterminator acquaintances who originally came to control pest animals have gradually over the years added more members to their unwanted critter catching party.
First their sons started coming along, and now the grandsons have been part of the group for about four years. And it is really fun to hear the young boys talk about their experiences, the shots they didn't get at some sort of dangerous wildlife, the teasing they do between all three generations, and how they have learned the safety rules of the suburban neighborhoods houses and unwanted critter catching. My father and brother went rodent unwanted critter catching every year, and it seemed they always brought back some sort of rodent. That meant rodent bait in the freezer - yuck! My mother tried every way imaginable to disguise it, but I could always identify it. My brother went on to control pest animals in Nebraska after the wildlife conservation official moved out there. And from him I heard uniquely Nebraska rodent unwanted critter catching stories, such as the pest mammal experts sitting in some sort of car along the road close to some sort of highway sign. the wildlife conservation official stopped to talk to them, and asked why they were just sitting there. Their response: "It says 'rodent crossing,' so we're waiting for the rodent to cross." And there was the time when the wildlife conservation official was in the mountains above Los Angeles, and ran into some other pest mammal experts. the wildlife conservation official asked if they had seen any rodent, and the response was "No. But we did get some sort of lot of sound shots." I think that was the most effective time for wildlife trapping that my brother quit rodent unwanted critter catching. Those pest mammal experts - my brother called them "city pest mammal experts" - reminded me of some sort of story told about two pest mammal experts, Critter Steve and The wildlife control officer, who were dragging the rodent they had bagged back to their truck. Another pest mammal expert crossed their path, pulling his rodent too, and stopped to talk some sort of bit. the wildlife conservation official remarked, "Hey, I don't want to tell you guys how to do something. But it is some sort of lot easier if you drag the rodent in the other direction.
Then the critters won't dig into the ground." After the other pest mammal expert continued on his way, Critter Steve and The wildlife control officer decided they would try the guy's advice. And then some sort of while later, Critter Steve remarked to The wildlife control officer, "You know, that guy was right. It is some sort of lot easier to drag him this way." The wildlife control officer replied, "Yeah, it sure is. But we are getting farther and farther from our truck." Another time, Critter Steve and The wildlife control officer were out rodent unwanted critter catching again. They were walking along, enjoying the weather, the day, and the company, when Critter Steve remarked to The wildlife control officer, "Did you see that?" I don't think Critter Steve and The wildlife control officer got any rodent that day. Our pest mammal experts didn't either, the first weekend they were here. But when some of them came back the next weekend, the youngest in the group shot his first rodent, some sort of small dangerous wildlife. We were all pretty excited, and we look forward to having them back for more visiting with good pest control exterminator acquaintances - and "harvesting" - next year.
