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.

Modesto Wildlife Removal Tip: Do mothballs or ammonia help repel opossums? Mothballs and ammonia are two things often used as a 'deterrent' for a number of wild animals, opossums, raccoons, rats and squirrels included. Even bats aren't safe against these foul-smelling items, items that don't prove to be very deterring at all ... That's right, despite what you may have read or heard, mothballs and ammonia are not good deterrents and for one massive reason - they simply do not work. The average opossum is smart enough to know that although those 'deterrents' smell bad, they can't hurt them, and if there's a tasty meal at the end of the plight, a bit of a bad smell definitely won't keep them away. Plus there are other things to think about here - ammonia is poisonous. IT's bad for health, both the health of humans and other animals too. If you're spray ammonia all around the place, or leaving ammonia-soaked rags around the house, you're running the risk of poisoning yourself, the other members of your family and friends who visit, as well as your household pets. Not only that, you could cause death or injury to other animals too - bats, squirrels, mice, rats, and more are all well known to enter the same kind of places as opossums and although getting rid of them with the ammonia sounds like a good idea, you definitely don't want dead, poisoned animals decomposing all around your home, do you?
Modesto Animal News Clip: Modesto Wildlife regulations need to be reviewed
The deadline for applying for a dangerous raccoon wildlife trapping license on public is September 16. If you are going to animal capture on Commercial Woodland Act (CFA) land you must apply for a public land documentation that allows animal extermination even though the CFA nuisance wildlife land is technically private land. Those who animal capture private land in Zones 1 and 2 must either own 40 hectares of land or have permission to animal capture the private nuisance wildlife land within the respective raccoon Management Unit (DMU) they wish to animal capture. The phone amount of the land owner allowing access is required and will be printed on each license. Read on for more information about animal control in Modesto, California.
Only two private land dangerous raccoon wildlife trapping licenses per wildlife management company are allowed this year in Zone 1 and 2 and several U.P. DMUs will be closed to dangerous wildlife trapping this season. Child raccoon wild animal control companies may take raccoon, raccoon and raccoon by critter trap at age 12 in 2007. The new change also allows child wild animal control companies beginning at age 10, to take raccoon by cage trap and baited trap. They can buy one dangerous raccoon wildlife trapping license over the counter July 16 through September 16. No application fee or drawing is required. The license may be purchased for either public or private land and youngsters 10 and 11 are restricted to nuisance wildlife control-only. Nonresidents, ages 10 to 17, are allowed to purchase resident licenses. Despite this there is no free Modesto animal services for wildlife in Stanislaus County.
These are only part of the many regulations in effect this year. It is the obligation of all who participate to familiarize themselves with all the changes annually. It is also a good tool for teaching new wild animal control companies the responsibilities that go with the sport. Tim Koby is the Outdoors Editor for KMB Broadcasting and host/producer of Trails & Tales Outdoors Radio aired on six radio stations over three networks, Charter Communications Cable and the Online on Saturday morning. He feels strongly about this issue. Most Modesto pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
For those who want to support the rule of Groundhog, doing so would certainly increase public input. Moreover, if the legislature became more involved in annual game management policy revue, the recently passed youth wildlife trapping regulatory changes would improve and they alone took over five years to accomplish. The fact is, changes are proceeding in accordance of law and this year, there are several dealing with dangerous wildlife trapping that everyone should be aware of. At least, this is what Modesto extermination companies think.
