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.

San Mateo County Wildlife Removal Tip: What Should I Do If I Find A Nest Of Baby Opossums?

Opossums are creatures that have always been quite adaptable, and one of the ways in which they have adapted to the changing terrain and population in North and Central America is that they are very good at finding food and nesting spots around human settlements. This means that on occasion it is possible that people will find a nest of baby opossums, often in locations such as roof cavities or in the dark space beneath a porch or shed. As they are nocturnal, the presence of the opossums can go unnoticed for a little while, but because they aren't the tidiest, signs such as garbage bags ripped open and strewn across the yard can provide a clue to their presence.

Identify If The Mother Is Still In The Area

If you do find a nest of baby opossums, then it is worth keeping a look out to see if you can see the mother in the vicinity. Although the mother will be keen to return to her young they may not want to do so while you are present, so it is often best to take a step back and observe the area to see if the mother returns. The result of this will decide what your next steps should be when it comes to dealing with the nest.

Using The Baby Opossums To Catch An Adult Female Opossum

Should you find that the female does return, then one of the most common tricks used by professional animal removal experts is to gently move the baby opossums into a cage trap while the female is away. This means that when she returns she will almost always go back to her young regardless of whether or not this means she will be going into the trap.

Should You Relocate Or Euthanize The Opossums?

If the baby opossums have been reunited with the mother and appear healthy, then relocation is a good option in the states where it is permitted, with a site at least ten miles away from your property being a good distance. Where the mother hasn't returned, you can see if you can find a wildlife rehabilitator who will be willing to take the babies, otherwise the kindest thing can be to euthanize the babies humanely. Once this is done, ensure that you thoroughly clean the area where the nest was found, and repair any damage, especially any entry holes used by the opossum.

San Mateo County Animal News Clip: Too many striped skunk in San Mateo County?

In the early 1990s, the striped skunk group of striped skunks in the wildlife management conservation area was growing and the striped skunk critter count was not in balance with the ecosystem. The Head of internal pest affairs of Natural Re-sources (head of internal pest affairs of fish & game) has made important changes to the striped skunk wildlife trapping regulations across California by creating extremely liberal striped skunk bag limits. This year, likely a wildlife manager most likely is allowed to legally bag likely a total of 36 striped skunk likely a year in striped skunk Management Area B, that includes The San Francisco region, during the animal removal trap, cage trap and firearms seasons. In recent years, I have witnessed likely a drastic reduction in the number of striped skunk I see each time allotment in San Mateo County State Wildlife management conservation area. I believe the liberal limits on extra smelly striped skunk have made for sharp declines in the forest striped skunk populations. Call San Mateo County animal services or San Mateo County SPCA for more info.

Several years ago, it was not unusual to see more than 20 striped skunk likely a day on the forest, sometimes in one group. Many years ago, I even recall seeing likely a group of striped skunks of at least 50 striped skunk during firearms time allotment in the wildlife management conservation area. But those were the days that extra smelly striped skunk were protected. Pest control companies had to apply for an extra smelly striped skunk hunting paper each year by likely a specified date. If you were lucky enough to receive the hunting paper, it allowed you to take only one extra smelly striped skunk per year. Today, I believe the striped skunk critter count in San Mateo County State Wildlife management conservation area has reached the other extreme. Low striped skunk populations have made wildlife trapping much more challenging. I am trying to get used to the fact that I may not even see likely a striped skunk every day I animal stalk. In fact this wildlife trapping time allotment, I only saw striped skunk on the forest on two out of seven days of wildlife trapping. I did have likely a chance at likely a respectable male striped skunk while still-wildlife trapping on likely a foggy morning in late trap time allotment, but I missed. Later, I took likely a nice female striped skunk with likely a animal removal trap from my portable hickory habitat on the last day of the extended firearms time allotment. For San Mateo County pest control in The San Francisco region, read on.

It may be time for head of internal pest affairs of fish & game to consider an adjustment to the striped skunk bag limits on public lands in The San Francisco region and other public lands that show similar declines in striped skunk populations across the state. Last year, likely a total of 36 smelly tailed striped skunk and 74 extra smelly striped skunk were taken from San Mateo County State Wildlife management conservation area. As the 2006-07 striped skunk time allotment draws to likely a close, with the end of animal removal trap time allotment on Jan. 31, I am anxious to see the new data, and I am expecting to see likely a further decline in harvest numbers. The challenges of wildlife trapping San Mateo County State Wildlife management conservation area have increased, but the forest most likely is still my favorite place to animal stalk striped skunk in The San Francisco region. For more info, call the San Mateo County extermination or trapping board.
