Trapping predators helps maintain balance and manage populations of various species. When (non-human) predators are not managed deer population are adversely affected, area pets can be endangered and mange and rabies can become more prevalent.
Coyote attacks on humans have been increasingly frequent, where predator control and management is not adequate, although uncommon and rarely cause serious injuries, due to the relatively small size of the coyote.
Where "befriending" (not harrassing) of coyotes is practiced by rural people, urban coyotes are losing their fear of humans, which is further worsened by people intentionally or unintentionally feeding coyotes. In such situations, some coyotes have begun to act aggressively toward humans, chasing joggers and bicyclists, confronting people walking their dogs, and stalking small children. Coyotes will sometimes target small children, mostly under the age of 10, though some adults have been bitten.


Some reasons for trapping predators:

* Predator control for threatened and endangered species protection
* Predator control for migratory bird protection
* Habitat management or protection
* Protection of pets
* Public safety and health
* Feral animal control
* Population management
* Disease control
From a Customer:

Dan,
The Board of Directors of Briar Creek Sportsman Club would like to thank you for the trapping service your company (CSRA Trapping Service) provided for us.  Your initial meeting with our Board was very helpful in allowing us to understand the method and process you would be using in helping to resolve our predator problem.  We had a bigger predator problem than we thought and true to your words, you made quite an impact on their numbers.  You were very professional in keeping the schedule, reporting back on progress, and interacting with our membership.  Thank you for a job well done.
It would be our pleasure to recommend your services to future customers.

Thanks again,

Lenn Brantley

 BATS: One of the Most Common Concerns
Bats are the only mammals that can truly fly and their nocturnal habits have led to many phobias regarding them. However, bats are nature's #1 mosquito and flying insect control agents. One bat is capable of eating 3 times its body weight, in mosquitoes in one night. it doesn't mean you want them living in your attic, though.

There are two groups of bats: colonial and solitary. The little brown bat gathers together in colonies whether it be in winter (hibernation sites) or in the spring-fall months, usually in the attics or eaves of homes. It is during the spring-fall that the bats come in to most conflict with humans, as these colonies are nursery colonies and can contain hundreds of bats. Each female bat has one offspring and returns year after year.

Bats come into contact with humans when maternal colonies take over the attics and eaves of homes and buildings. Numbering in the hundreds, the scratching and squeaking can keep people awake. Bats can enter these areas where holes are present. These holes can be as small as a quarter of an inch and can be located around dormers, chimneys or holes in the soffits and facia.

Other than the noise, bats can cause health concerns to humans. Bat guano (droppings) under the right conditions can pose serious health concerns (histoplasmosis) to those in the affected home; especially infants, elderly and people with respiratory illness. The strong smell of ammonia from their urine can cause headaches. Serious health concerns from the accumulation of droppings or urine occur through the direct contact-in other words, one must physically disturb the area. The accumulation can also attract mites and other parasites.

Another health concern regarding bats, is rabies. The incidences of rabid bats is low and although ot to be treated lightly, there is no need for panic.
Once we evict the bats we perform preventative maintenance by sealing off their entry points. We are also qualified to provide the proper clean up from an infestation.
