Overview

Though their name loosely translates to 'quill pig,' porcupines are not related to pigs in any way. In fact, porcupines are the second-largest North American rodent after beavers. Their quills are primarily used as a defense mechanism, though, contrary to popular belief, porcupines cannot shoot them at predators. Instead, they lash their tail and embed their quills in the skin of their enemies. Each porcupine has approximately 30,000 quills on its body.

Porcupines chewing on wood trim or trees? Porcupines, sometimes called "porkies" or "quill pigs," are heavy-bodied, short-legged, slow, and awkward rodents, with a waddling gait. They rely on their sharp, barbed quills (up to 30,000 per individual) for defense.

Critter Control did a great job of removing a raccoon from my attic and sealing the hole to close off access. The animal was inactive for a few days due to a snowstorm and a cold snap, but they persisted and were successful in trapping the coon within a day of when the weather warmed up. They also took care of a separate problem with squirrels. VERY satisfied with the work, and especially impressed by the competence and capability of Steve Waldner who did all the work. Hope that I don't need to use them again, but won't hesitate to hire them if the need arises. Dick H Okemos
