Many of California's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving California's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local San Diego county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Del Mar animal control for wildlife issues.

Del Mar Wildlife Removal Tip: How Well Can Squirrels Climb And Jump?

You might have seen squirrels running on the trees in garden and yard area. These rodents keep on searching for nuts and fruits to fulfill their dietary requirements. But many people are interested to know how high they can jump and climb. Well! Squirrels are agile and quick rodents; their high twitch muscles help them to grip on a variety of surfaces. They are also capable enough to swivel their rear legs backward to make sharp movements. With such active movements, you will find it quite difficult to keep them away from your premises.

Note that there are around 250 different squirrel species in the world. If you ware interested in watching a nature-inspired aerial show, simply visit your garden and observe the movements of squirrels on trees. You will find them climbing high on trees, jumping between branches and dancing across the lines in the premises. Some studies show that at an average a tree squirrel can cover the space of around 20 feet with a single jump. These creatures are also able to leap up to 4-9 feet in the air. They are able to do all such crazy movements just because of the thick pads available on their feet.

Squirrels have amazing balancing ability, and they succeed to do so with the help of their tail. With these skills, they can easily run over electric lines, cloth lines and cables in residential areas. These hyperactive rodents are observed to have a general speed of 20 miles per hour on the ground and may ensure a movement of 12 miles per hour while climbing on the trees and poles. It is possible just because of their double-jointed hind legs and super muscles. You might have observed squirrels using zigzag pattern while running on the ground; this behavior is followed by rodents just to confuse the predators.

Experts reveal that the gray squirrels can jump up to 9 feet in the horizontal direction and around 4 feet in vertical. However, depending on the climate and conditions where they have grown up, their skills may be different. Some species of squirrels can even jump higher, and their movements vary when they are young and old. When the eastern gray squirrel is on full motion, it can run with a speed of 12 miles/hour. Squirrels are capable enough to jump on the long gaps; they may swarm over washing lines as well as can climb on the poles. In case if a squirrel falls down, it is capable enough to survive for the drop of maximum 100 feet as it can use her tail as a parachute. The 5 toes on her back feet make her able to ensure perfect grip on smooth surfaces. By using their furry tails, they can even hang their body upside down to grab food from tough locations. In case if you have squirrel infestation in garden or yard area; there are chances that these rodents will even climb up to your roof and create nests in the attic.
