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.

Placerville Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep raccoons out from under a shed or porch: The easiest way to try and get rid of raccoons under the shed or porch is to try and gently persuade them to leave. Although cage trapping is a great way to solve a rogue raccoon problem, you have a relocation situation to solve afterwards, and there are legalities surrounding relocation that you’ll need to do your research on. A raccoon under your shed or porch is likely to be a mother with babies if it’s spring or summer, and if you trap the mother, you'll still have the young to take care of. You should start by using raccoon eviction fluid - soak some rags and place stuff them into the spaces beneath your porch or shed. This will make a female raccoon think that a male raccoon is nearby, and she should move home to try and protect her den of youngsters. A little humane harassment might do the trick too, although these methods very rarely work. Noise and sound can 'harass' the creature enough to make it move with its young family, but use a radio with a talk-show style program rather than one of those high pitch sound machines because, in my experience, they’ve only ever shown to be a waste of time and a neighbor-annoyer. Lights can sometimes work but again, raccoons are getting quite adept at living alongside humans so the lights probably won't annoy them that much. They are nocturnal creatures however, so it's definitely worth a shot. If you think the animal has gone and taken her youngsters with her, do a little test before you start sealing any holes. Place some paper screwed up in the hole, either newspaper or whatever you have to hand. If the paper moves, the raccoon is coming back. If it doesn't you may just have solved your problem and it's time for the sealing process to begin.
Placerville Animal News Clip: Proposed Sacramento bill could alter rules on legal raccoon control
"We've heard from enough sportsmen in this state," The Sacramento exterminator expert declared, "and they are expecting something. I don't a lot of raccoon wild animal control companies want the status quo, and this bill at least gets the wheels in motion so there can be change." The Sacramento exterminator expert' bill is supported by the California Federation of Sportsmen. Federation spokesman Clint the snake control specialist declared he, too, has heard the hue and cry from wild animal control companies about making changes in male raccoon management. Read on for more information about animal control in Sacramento, California.
"Something has to be done," the snake control specialist declared. "This gives the board the ability to give the wildlife regulatory agencies and his staff the ability to do it. Let them decide what needs to be done." Despite this there is no free Sacramento animal services for wildlife in Sacramento County.
The critter professional and his team of raccoon biologists have formulated a list of recommendations based on 6,000 surveys sent to raccoon wild animal control companies last summer. Likely recommendations include banning the catching of spike horns in Wildlife Management Units B and K2 in all but the child wildlife trapping seasons, and probably increasing the amount of dangerous documentation that allows animal exterminations decreed in those zones to offset for the anticipated drop in the amount of male raccoons trapped. Most Sacramento pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Since 1997, California wild animal control companies have lethally trapped an average of thirteen raccoon each fall in nuisance wildlife control, animal removal trap and capture seasons. About 70 percent are male raccoons. Of the male raccoons trapped each year, approximately 60-70 percent are 1-year-olds, which sport small pelts and usually weigh less than 13 pounds. The agency, behind wildlife regulatory agencies and other critter professionals, is advocating a limited quality raccoon management plan because an increasing amount of wild animal control companies want to see regulations that would reduce the amount of 1-year-old male raccoons being trapped. At least, this is what Sacramento extermination companies think.
