This post is really just a rant. I've only gotten a few nuisance wildlife control jobs. Started off doing it as a side hobby and for private land access about a year ago. Just recently been advertising it as a small, side business. But the customers in this industry seem so off from what I can tell. I've been working self employed doing other stuff for years but never met so many customers like in this industry. Had a call today for a snake removal job. I told the guy that I couldn't guarantee a catch and that more than likely the snake would escape before I got there. Nevertheless, when I arrived the snake was gone. Right before pay time, dude started talking about how he had some previous contractors that did him wrong and that he wanted to kill them. Wouldn't stop saying how much he wanted to kill them for like 10 minutes. Pretty sure it was just a scare tactic but glad I always conceal my Ruger Ec9s while out of home. Are customers like this typical in this industry for you other fellas?

Had one tell me she could feel the bats watching her

Another said if I had put a trap on her roof the skunk would not have sprayed in her yard

Another that told me she thinks the other guy put a camera in her attic and filmed her in the bathroom (I assure you nobody wanted to see her in the bathroom)

Yea you will run in to some wing-dingers. Some I can see up front are way off and I just give an astronomical price so I donít get hired


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

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

One of the craziest I had was an extremely wealthy customer that had rats. When I got there he had piles of garbage all over his home, with dead rats in various places. He was dressed from head to toe in a yellow rain suit, and had a pitch fork, stabbing holes in the ceiling as he was asking me ,"don't you hear them" ? Before I could say anything he handed me a pocket full of 100 dollar bills, and asked if I would set some trap's which I did. He called me two days later, said the rats were all gone now, and I could pick the traps up. Never did catch even one rat, I think his rodenticides had it resolved before we showed up. Offered to clean up the dead ones and he said don't worry about them. Crazy things we run into.

crazy
