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.

Ventura Wildlife Removal Tip: How to get raccoons out of a wall: There are plenty of reasons why a raccoon may just end up in your wall and although this gives you a rather difficult problem to solve, you should take comfort in the fact that there are ways to deal with it. You just need to know how. If you have raccoons in a wall, thereís a good chance the animal has fallen down from the attic, one approach you could take to try and get them out. If you can see the animal, and possibly even reach the animal, a snare trap could be used to capture it (and any babies), for you then to relocate the raccoon or deal with it appropriately. Youíll need to carefully transfer the animals from the snare trap to a larger cage trap, and you're going to need some pretty thick, heavy-duty gloves for that. Youíre not going to want to give this animal a chance to bite or scratch you. Itíll hurt for a start, plus there are disease threats to worry about. They are known to be very aggressive when trapped or cornered. Itís just not a good idea to try to deal with these creatures by hand.
Ventura Animal News Clip: Rodent wild mammal management gets initial OK
The ordinance, which is intended to control the animals' exact number of rodents, faces two additional readings. The chance to trap with lethal spring trap rodent in Ventura is moving closer to reality. The Ventura City Council approved on a vote of 3-0 Thursday the first of three readings for a proposed ordinance that would allow people to trap with lethal spring trap rodent in a designated area within Greenbelt wildlife management area. Council members Ronnie Begetter and Critter Catcher Chris Leighton were absent from the meeting. The proposed ordinance is being considered as a way to control rodent exact number of rodents in the city, said Kelly Critter Catcher Chris, director of the city's wildlife management areas and Recreation Department. Read on for more information about animal control in Ventura, California.
"We feel this is necessary to do," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "If we don't start a program (the rodent exact number of rodents) is going to continue to grow." According to information presented to the City Council, the ideal number of rodent in an urban area is about 15 animals per square mile. More than 100 rodent per square mile have been counted in Ventura in two separate years. The area that would be designated as an urban rodent-management zone, according to the proposed ordinance, would be south of Hickman Road and west of Northwest 128th Street. Despite this there is no free Ventura animal services for wildlife in Ventura County.
During Thursday's City Council meeting, Critter Catcher Chris said the management zone could be moved if necessary. He said all exterminating companies would be required to have a state license and check in with the wildlife management areas department before wildlife management and once they are finished wildlife management each day. All rodent taken by pest exterminating companies would have to be recorded with authorities. Several cities in the metro area, including downtown Ventura, have designated wild mammal management zones as a way to control rodent exact number of rodents. The state Department of Natural Resources also would have to approve allowing pest exterminating companies in Ventura, Critter Catcher Chris announced. The Ventura wildlife management areas board approved the ordinance at its May 1 meeting. The City Council will next vote on the issue June 1. Most Ventura pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
All of county proposals will be aired at the public meeting, with an overall presentation followed by more in-depth discussions on a variety of issues such as activity areas, traffic and pedestrian circulation, trails and farm operations. Critter Catcher Chris said the public feedback that the county receives at this hearing will be used to guide the county in creating a finalized master plan that will first be presented to the Farm wildlife management area Advisory Board and, later, to the county wild animal commissioners, who must adopt the new plan. The wildlife management area, which once served as a farm to feed patients at the Ventura State Hospital, is owned by the state, which in 1993 leased it to the county. The county has preserved part of the acreage as a working farm while using the remainder as wildlife management area land. At least, this is what Ventura extermination companies think.
