Whats the most youve pulled out of one back yard? I have a customer that sofar I have pulled 14 skunks and 3 possums out of his back yard in the middle of town. Im still seeing a possum and at least two more skunks on camera. Starting to think Im trapping everything in town. Got the call after his dog got sprayed and figured it was just a family living under his shed. Imagine my surprise when I kept filling the 4 traps I had in his yard.

Sixteen raccoons and two opossums. Which is strange for Atlanta with low and localized coon numbers, average is two to three. Even stranger these were flipping sod which is my only sod flippers to date.
That was last year.

They had another bit of flipped sod a couple weeks ago I'm pulling traps on that same site this week with zero catches and no new damage. Go figure.

Over what time frame? I've caught 46 woodchucks over 8 years so far. Around 11 possums, 11-12 skunks and 3 raccoons. On my small 1/4 acre property.

In about 3 weeks time. They where having problems with squirrels chewing up the wires on some of their farm equipment. Seen signs of raccoon so put out a few sets for them.

One February a few years ago we locked onto a no tell motel under a guys front porch. I pulled 19 skunks out. I know there were more caught.

I remember telling a lady (whom you could tell had seen a few things in life) about her attic raccoon no tell motel. She got a far away look in her eyes you could tell she had fond memories of such motels, lol.

19 groundhogs 4 opossums 3 skunks 3 coon and the next year 15 groundhog several coon skunk and possum..this year only 5 groundhog 3skunk and a coon. All from the same yard.Might say though there is a small stream that runs through the property and that makes it a travel corridor

Catching as many animals in one yard is proof of one thing :

You're not only (possibly) catching the problem animal (s), but every animal the neighborhood and sending someone the bill !

And that is why I hate the Animal Control Business as a whole, one that I worked in for nearly all of my adult life !

Most of the people I meet, even today are a bunch of @#$%^& crooks , preying on the fears and weakness of others !
