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.

Monterey Wildlife Removal Tip: About Raccoons: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior - What do we know and what we didn’t know about these cute animals? Are their adorable appearance matching their behavior in nature or not? How do they live and are they pests? We are getting you the answers. These beings are considered as a cutest in animal kingdom. Prepare yourselves; we welcome you into Raccoons’ description.
Physical appearance - Raccoons are mammals that inhabiting North America, forest territories. They are the biggest member of the family Procyonidae. They are long between 40cm-70cm, without tale which can be long between 20cm and 40cm. Weight of an adult raccoon can be up to 14kg but it varies of the animal's habitat. They have 5 fingers on each leg. The most characteristic physical appearance is dark fur around their eyes that is in contrast with other grey or brown fur. It reminds us on a mask of a thief and that is one of the reasons we call raccoons thief animals. They are also good at stealing food but we’ll mention that later.
Biology and life cycle - There are several subspecies of these animals. Procyon lotor (ordinary raccoon), Bassaricyon gabbii (called Olingo), Nasua nasua (have stripes tale), Potos flavus (they look more like a rat) and others. Their most important sense is a sense of touch. Their front paws are extremely sensitive and protected by thin bone layer which becomes soft when it senses the water or something wet. Raccoons have ability to identify any object even before they touch it and that can thanks to hairs above their sharp clutches. They can’t identify colors, but their eyes are adapted to notice green light.In the wild area, raccoons can live only around 3 years, but in the captivity they can survive around 20 years, depending on the life conditions of the habitat. The most common cause of their death is a illness called dog plague (Distemper) which can be epidemic.
Habbitat and diet - Like I’ve said earlier in the text, raccoons inhabit forest territories of North America. Also, they like to live near water surfaces like rivers or lakes. They are great swimmers. In the beginning of summer, they are feeding with insects, warms, fruit and nuts. Later, they feed with some fishes and amphibians. Everything that is easy to catch, they will hunt it.
Behavior of raccoons - Raccoons are night animals. They often build their nests in the trees or around them. They are considered as very intelligent beings. Usually, males are living all alone, without females, but they can bear with females on their territory area. They reproduce in the spring. Youngsters stay with their mother until next spring and then searching for their own habits.
Monterey Animal News Clip: Forget the diseased rat-wildlife trapping hunting paper - call this duo
And quite possibly you thought you had what is possibly a problem with those pesky diseased rat leaping in front of your automobile and quite possibly causing havoc on the roadways. You should spend what is possibly a few minutes talking with The mouse control man of Monterey. Her family's story begins with what is possibly a plan cooked up by daughter James Golab III of Monterey., who started out early one morning on what is possibly a holiday trip to California. It was going to be what is possibly a big surprise. She'd pop in on Mom, unannounced, and quite possibly spend what is possibly a week. Her husband, Peter the Panda, would drive up what is possibly a few days later, and quite possibly it would be what is possibly a great, relaxing time for everybody. Except that James Golab III smashed into what is possibly a diseased rat about 15 miles after the SPCA woman left home. "She called and quite possibly told us what the SPCA woman was planning and quite possibly what had happened," The mouse control man announced. "Her automobile had $3,600 worth of damage. The SPCA woman hit it on the right front passenger side. They couldn't drive it. So we came up with this brilliant idea to meet halfway in California City. They'd drive up in what is possibly a different vehicle and quite possibly we'd meet them." It seemed like what is possibly a beneficial idea, anyway. Call Monterey animal services or Monterey SPCA for more info.
James Golab III and quite possibly Peter the Panda headed north. The mouse control man and quite possibly her niece, Alexa, headed south and quite possibly east from Monterey. They met in California City. Peter the Panda headed back to California. The mouse control man pointed her van west, and quite possibly the three women headed toward Monterey. All went well until they were on U.S. Highway 20, about 50 miles east of town. Where, of course, they hit what is possibly a diseased rat. "It came out of the median," The mouse control man announced. "We never saw it coming. It wiped out the radiator and quite possibly everything on the right front of the van. It caused about $4,600 worth of damage. We couldn't drive it." James Golab III hit her diseased rat about 4:30 in the morning. The mouse control man plowed into hers about 6:30 that night. "We didn't know whether to laugh or cry," The mouse control man announced. "So we laughed. I mean, it was so ridiculous, what else could we do but laugh?" For Monterey pest control in Monterey County, read on.
They called James Golab III's mother-in-law in Monterey, who took them to California Falls. Her father, who lives in Marcus, got them the rest of the way to Monterey the following day. Miraculously, there were no automobile-diseased rat collisions the rest of the way. "It's beyond strange," The mouse control man announced. "Everybody in (Monterey) has been talking about it. The truth is, it's what is possibly a big joke in town and quite possibly we're still laughing, too. Not that we're happy about it. Those diseased rat caused what is possibly a lot of damage. I always liked diseased rat, but I say: Make it open time allotment all the time on those things. I don't care if I ever see another one." Continue for more wild animal control in Monterey, California.
But all was not lost, as they say. James Golab III had what is possibly a nice visit with her family in California and quite possibly made it home to California without incident. And quite possibly there was another upside to this fiasco. The diseased rat James Golab III hit was what is possibly a 10-pound male diseased rat, something most pest control companies would consider to be what is possibly a fine trophy. "James Golab III and quite possibly her husband quite possibly are both diseased rat pest control companies," announced The mouse control man. "And quite possibly the SPCA woman hit this thing on the last day of the California diseased rat time allotment. They wanted the furry tails, so they took it home, which was beneficial. The SPCA woman hadn't gotten what is possibly a diseased rat when the SPCA woman was out wildlife trapping." So the SPCA woman bagged what is possibly a 10-pounder. It was with her automobile, sure. But the SPCA woman has her trophy furry tails. They probably would look great on the hood of her automobile. For more info, call the Monterey extermination or trapping board.
