My favorite is beaver, what's your fellas favorite kind of job?


Trapping is easy you say? You try getting your target animal to step in a 3 inch area of its whole territory.

Bats are easy money for sure, as per $/hour. But I'm about done with them as it is just to hard on my body doing all the ladder work

Beavers would be what I enjoy the most Only ever had one beaver job I hated. Had to walk a long way to site and the beavers were some of the hardest to catch Guy said no one trapped them before. But I believe someone had been from a differnt property. Half of the ones I caught were black so I think someone had a honey hole I know of a very hard working trapper that trapped the vicinity but had died two years prior to me getting the job. So I think he had kept them in check and then after he passed they became a problem


Every day is a gift from GOD, don't waste it!!

If they have plenty of food, give them something interesting to smell

Skunk but they are rarer than hen's teeth in my service area.

That's trapping for removals I love honey bees.

Gophers comprise 80% or more of my jobs but they are not as challenging as moles.

Has to be Raccoons, Skunks, Chucks, Flyers, Beaver & Bats. Getting to that shakey ladder age, So I don't go that high to chase them anymore.

For sure my favorite animals are skunks, especially ones in window wells. It usually takes the homeowner longer to write the check than for me to complete the job.

The kind where the animal is already caught and you just have to pick it up.

Though I really love the ease and profitability associated with positive setting for skunks and chucks, beaver is my real passion. It was good to get out this week and do a couple of jobs.
