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 the county animal services for assistance.

Biology and Life Cycle

After emerging from hibernation, Garter snakes usually enter the mating season. The male garter snakes usually leave the den first releasing pheromones to attract the females out of the den. Immediately the females are out of the den the male will go after them and mate with them. The female will go back to the summer habitat where it will feed and search for the property place to give birth. Also, the females have the ability to store male sperm until there is need for it. Also, unless the female finds right partner it may not mate. The female normally give birth to the young alive as they normally incubate the egg in the lower abdomen. The gestation period normally last from 2 to 3 months and after that the female will give birth to about 4 to 80 young around late July and October. The babies are always independent after birth and in 2 to 3 years the young normally get matured and reach about 55 cm in length and they will keep on growing throughout their lifespan which is always 4 years in wild and 6 to 10 years in captive.
