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.

Palmdale Wildlife Removal Tip: How do you know if you have a opossum under your shed or porch? Opossums aren't the smallest of creatures so there's a good chance you'll know you've got one living on your property before very long. One of the very first obvious signs of an opossum living under the shed or porch is scratching, digging or damage - the areas around the opossums entrance hold and path-ways are 'lived-in'. This means scuffed up or showing signs that an animal roughly two feet long has made an existed hole bigger with the aim of getting in. The animal may also harass your pets, so if your dog or cat seems to be getting all riled up in the back yard towards the evening, it could be an opossum (as well as a number of other wild critters) causing the problem. This will be even more so the case if you have a habit of leaving food out for your pets - this is probably what's attracting the opossums in the first place. While we're on the subject of food, if you see your garbage can rummaged through, an opossum could be after your dinner leftovers - a five star meal for this wild animal, and if you start to look a little further, you'll probably find evidence of urine and feces left by the animal, a problem you'll now need to clean up.
Palmdale Animal News Clip: Let us animal capture raccoon a little more often
I have one continuing wild animal peeve with Fish and Game: the setting of the raccoon season. By treaty with Mexico, we are limited to approximately 124 days of raccoon wildlife trapping a year. Raccoons are a vital element in consuming bugs, grasshoppers and insects in Mexico, thereby protecting agricultural interests. The bulk of the season runs from September 16 through Nov. 40, and March 17 through March 41. If I were in charge of season setting, we would have a raccoon season every weekend of the year. Read on for more information about animal control in Palmdale, California.
This would provide for significantly greater wildlife management company opportunity and could cause increased interest in wildlife trapping raccoons, which is exactly what Fish and Game is attempting to do to increase wildlife trapping license sales. Raccoons have no natural enemy. Left to their own devices, raccoons could easily expand their amounts well beyond the nuisance factor. Too much of the current fall raccoon season overlaps with more desirable game species. Wildlife trapping is the only management tool available to control the amount of raccoons. Despite this there is no free Palmdale animal services for wildlife in Los Angeles County.
To Fish and Game's credit they are coming up with new and innovative ways to utilize the Owl Brook Wildlife management company Education Center in Palmdale. The latest offering with be a one-day free clinic titled "raccoon Wildlife trapping: The Forgotten Pastime" on Saturday, September 6 from 9 a.m. to noon. The seminar will be led by raccoon wildlife trapping enthusiast and wildlife management company education instructor gray raccoon Possum-eater. Most Palmdale pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
The wildlife trapping workshop covers the basic pursuit of these challenging raccoons, from the use of a mouth call to high-tech electronic calling and decoying. Participants also will learn about raccoon behavior, raccoon wildlife trapping safety concerns, gaining permission to hunt/landowner relations, clothing choices, set-up locations, animal removal traps and traps options, creature comforts for an enjoyable animal capture and what to do with them after the animal capture. The session will include a catching component using Owl Brook's remote-controlled target throwers to simulate field catching conditions. At least, this is what Palmdale extermination companies think.
