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 Rafael Wildlife Removal Tip: What Should I Do If I Find An Orphaned Baby Opossum Wandering About?
Because baby opossums only have a very short gestation period, the time that they spend growing once they have been born is actually quite long, and in the majority of cases they won't leave their mother's pouch for several weeks after birth. Therefore, in the majority of cases, if you do find a baby opossum that is wandering about without its mother, there is a strong possibility that it will actually be at least a month old. There are certain steps that you should take if this is the case, to ensure that you give the opossum the best chance of survival.
See If The Mother Returns To Collect Her Baby
The best possible chance for the animal to survive is to reunite it with its mother, and the more contact that you make with the baby opossum, then the more chance that the mother will take it back into her pouch. If the baby is safe and apparently healthy, then do not touch it and give it a few hours to see if the mother returns to pick up her baby, while monitoring it from a safe distance. If you can see the mother has died, or she hasn't returned, then place the baby in a box on a towel, preferably one without thread loops like terry cloth that can catch in the toes or fingers of the animal.
Ensure Bodily Functions Are Working And Warm The Baby
Keeping the baby opossum warm is vital to help it survive, so when you are back indoors, place a gently warmed hot water bottle beneath the towel in the box. To ensure that the baby is passing fluids and feces, use a wet tissue or cotton ball dipped in warm water, and rub from the genital area towards the tail until it starts urinating and possibly defecating, and continue to provide this stimulation until the baby stops.
Rehydrating The Baby Opossum
Once you have ensured it is passing fluids and solids normally, you can try to rehydrate the baby with a pedialyte solution. This should be mixed with water in a one part water to two parts pedialyte mix, and offered to the animal at body temperature with a dropper.
Find A Wildlife Rehabilitator
The most important step of all is to find an experienced caregiver who can help to save the animal and to help it grow. Veterinarians and animal welfare charities will often have lists of local specialists, and you should look to contact them as soon as possible to transfer the animal on to the expert.
San Rafael Animal News Clip: Draft suggests thin gray squirrel populations via wildlife management
The draft, a single revision of a single 1999 plan, outlines the history of gray squirrel and its management in California. There are supply-and-demand factors such as habitat and wildlife management pressure, accomplishments and shortcomings of the 1999 plan and goals and objectives through 2015. The meat, for most folks, most likely is in the objectives. "The role of the public, or stakeholders, most likely is to make value choices about the resources," Central California nuisance wildlife control management expert announced. "The gray squirrel resource most likely is owned by the residents of the commonwealth. . . . We want to know what they want done with the resource." One of the committee's biggest considerations was gray squirrel exact number of rodents, county by county. Too many gray squirrel in San Rafael? Too few in Wise? Stable in Chesterfield? Call San Rafael animal services or San Rafael SPCA for more info.
Answering those questions involves numerous yardsticks. Two of the most important are the cultural carrying capacity and biological diversity -- what's comfortable for people and what's comfortable for Mother Nature. Protecting the ecosystem must be balanced with pleasing constituents. Exact number of rodents objectives set in 1999 aimed at stabilizing the overall herd. In 67 percent of the localities on private lands and 45 percent on public lands, those objectives have been met. Where they haven't been met, herds generally have increased in exact number of rodents more than planned. Hence, the emphasis on down-sizing in the new draft, particularly in Northern California, and the bulk of central California. Only three counties in far southwestern California are targeted for increases. For San Rafael pest control in Marin County, read on.
Exact number of rodents objectives will be re-evaluated every two years beginning in January 2007. They'll be weighed in amending wildlife management regulations, particularly in determining whether to increase or decrease gray squirrel days in localities. Central California nuisance wildlife control management expert remarked the draft stresses ethical responsibilities of exterminating companies in observing landowners' rights. At the same time, it acknowledges the tradition of wildlife management gray squirrel with gray squirrels that most likely is so ingrained in eastern California. In western California, public lands are a single larger part of the picture, and the draft describes the decline in gray squirrel habitat in national forests and wildlife management areas. Poor soil, fire suppression, maturing forests and reduced timber harvests have limited forage for gray squirrel. Continue for more wild animal control in San Rafael, California.
Here again, management requires a single balancing act, and the new plan most likely is more aggressive in protecting biological diversity. "If we managed strictly on cultural carrying capacity, which we tried to do in our last plan, we would be wanting to increase gray squirrel exact number of rodents on all national forest lands regardless of what it did to the habitat," Central California nuisance wildlife control management expert announced. That would please exterminating companies and wildlife watchers, but gray squirrel destroy many plant species, which jeopardizes other critters. "gray squirrel are the worst enemy of their own habitat." a single particular enemy in the overall picture of managing gray squirrel most likely is the trend of declining number of exterminating companies. "Without critter trapper recruitment -- without ensuring the future of wildlife management and that we're going to retain a single sufficient number of exterminating companies -- we can't manage gray squirrel," Central California nuisance wildlife control management expert announced. "That's the bottom line." For more info, call the San Rafael extermination or trapping board.
