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 Shasta county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Redding animal control for wildlife issues.

Redding Wildlife Removal Tip: Is it safe to handle a raccoon with bare hands? If youíve ever got up close and personal with a rogue raccoon, youíll already know that itís a very big mistake to try and capture this little beast with your own bare hands. Letís put aside the threat of disease for a second and just take a closer look at those sharp teeth and nasty claws. They can rip off roof tiles and tear through materials to get inside your attic. Can you imagine what that raccoon could do to your skin? Or even worse than that, the skin of your children? Raccoons are not usually a threat to humans and will normally choose to run and flee in the opposite direction than stand and fight. But these days, raccoons are very well adapted to living alongside humans. Some humans even feed them from saucers in the back yard. These creatures are no longer as frightened of us as they once were, and this has led to them getting braver. Theyíll have no problems with entering a human residence, and when you corner them, threaten their safety, or entrap them, they will act accordingly, usually viciously. This is when youíll have an even bigger problem on your hands because raccoons are one of the biggest carriers of rabies in the USA, accounting for more rabid animal reports than bats, skunks and foxes at over % of all reported cases. So no, itís not safe to handle a raccoon with your bare hands. Itís a very bad idea.


Redding Animal News Clip: Dealing with moles in the farm - Moles have been known to be a nuisance to farmers as they destroy crops planted. Moles generally feed on grains in the field. This leads to losses on the side of farmers as the moles feed on the grains before the seeds planted can germinated. A mole can usually be found in holes that they dig within the farms. Once a mole has fed on seeds planted, it burrows a place where it can rest before it can proceed to look for more food.

Moles have been known to operate from below the ground. They can burrow holes stretching over long distances underground which enables them to easily uproot food. In some cases, the mole feeds from below which gives it a high advantage over predators as it cannot be easily detected. Feeding from underground also ensures that the mole is able to cut roots using its front teeth.

The mole usually digs deep into the soil. This factor makes it difficult to trap them or kill them. There are however, a number of steps that may be taken to ensure that the moles are gotten rid off. Any farmer wishing to get rid of the moles must first survey the farm to determine where the animal has dug out its hole. In this way, the farmer will be able to determine the number of moles present by the number of holes present. It is important to note that moles in some cases it is possible to find more than one mole in a hole. This is usually common especially when they are mating.

Moles generally have a low gestation period which makes them multiply at a very high rate. Steps therefore, need to be taken by the farmer to avoid a situation whereby, the farmer loses crops in the field. There are a number of ways through which a farmer can deal with moles. One of these ways is to ensure that the plants are planted early enough in different seasons. This will help to avoid destruction of the crops by the mole.

Another step that may be taken to ensure that the mole is dealt with is to lay traps. Traps can be placed near the holes of the mole. A trap generally consists of an open tube that has only one opening. The tube is hollow allowing the mole to get through. Food is then placed at the end of the tube and attached to a spring. The moles will usually get attracted by the food and will get into the trap. Once they come into contact with the food, the spring is set forth and the mole is therefore, trapped. The moles that have been trapped can then be killed or moved to areas far away from the farm.

Another method that has become common in dealing with moles is pouring water inside their holes. When water is poured into their holes, moles often leave their holes and this can make it easier to trap them. It is important to carry out frequent inspection of the farm to ensure that moles do not multiply and spoil food.
