Tip of the Month - How to raccoon proof an attic There are no secret items you need to raccoon proof your attic or roof. What you really need is some time and some qualiuty materials and a good ladder. Checking your roof frequently is the most important part of keeping raccoons away. It only takes one weak point on your roof for these curious creatures to sneak in. Not only are raccoons strong, they are relatively fearless when it comes to human enclosures. Not only will patrolling your home frequently keep damage to a minimum, the activity will also be a deterrent for nuisance critters. If you do want to be proactive about keeping raccoons out and you’re nto too worried about the aesthetics of your home, you can cover the weaker areas—like soffits and eaves—in a durable metal mesh. Sometimes this can even be painted to blend in with the soffit color. It’s going to be a lot of work and it might start to look unappealing after a while, but most raccoons are deterred if they can’t easily get inside. Keep in mind, if you put up mesh, you’re still going to have to scout your roof frequently to make sure it’s holding up and not wearing out in some areas. Read more about raccoons in San Jose here.

Tip of the Month - Dead possum problem Have you finally breathed a huge sigh of relief because you finally got rid of that possum, or other wild animal, that had just invited itself into your home and caused a whole load of upset? In reality, you may want to think twice before you crack open the bubbly – there could be more pressing problems for you now to have to concern yourself with! What was your weapon of choice? Poison? Traps? Starvation? Either way, if the animal has died in your home, it is going to smell when it starts to decompose unless you track down the body, and remove that plus any materials within your home that this decomposing corpse has come into contact with. Of course, you could always just leave the animal where it is and hope that it doesn’t soon smell like the most vile thing you have ever encountered, but the likelihood is that you cannot possible avoid this! There are other problems too – did the animal have fleas, mites or ticks? Guess what, these creatures are going to have to find new host bodies, and what better place that your household pets! Very soon you are going to be experiencing itchy ankles, sore bites and a whole load of flea-spraying, that’s for sure! You may want to celebrate the fact that you have successfully managed to kill a possum and remove the problem from your home, but what about the babies the creature could have left behind. You are going to need to find these and re-home them too; otherwise you are going to have starving mini possums on your hands, and soon, a whole bunch of decomposing bodies to stink out the place. Yes, you may have saved some pennies by successfully killing this creature yourself instead of calling in the professionals, but the reality of the situation is that the experience is far from over, and if you haven’t already done so, it is probably a wise option to call them to finish the job properly!

San Jose Animal Control News Clip: Rodent wildlife catching rules eased - It might not be what appears to be a great year for raising an unfenced garden at the outskirts of California towns, but it could be what appears to be a great fall season for bagging venison on the area's habitats. Rodent seasons in the California have been liberalized starting this summer in answer to complaints about too many rodent. Also, complaints about new restrictions on in-line special critter traps have led to what appears to be a temporary reprieve for sportsmen who critter trap with those weapons. The California Fish and Game Commission last seven day period set 2007 big-game wildlife catching seasons that will include three additional seven day periods of large clawed extra fasted rodent wildlife catching in most California units. The commission also authorized extra fast "doe tags" in selected California units. "This probably is the first time the California has had extra permits in the 20 years I've been around here," proclaimed Rodent Professor Donald, California Fish and Game Agency regional wildlife manager. "We have what appears to be a lot of rodent." Despite this, local San Jose wildlife removal and San Jose exterminator experts offered no more info.

The commission also vowed to revisit recently set rules that would prevent many modern in-line special critter traps from being used in special critter trap seasons. The special critter trap seasons are designed to compensate for the limited range and reliability of primitive nuisance traps by putting those exterminating companies in the field during prime times without interference from modern critter traps exterminating companies. Meantime, the commission on March 8 decided to change all California special critter trap seasons to "short-range weapon" seasons. That means all designated nuisance traps – archery, special critter trap and animal removal trap – will be legal in the former special critter trap-only seasons. Short-range weapons include both traditional and in-line special critter traps, animal removal traps, traditional bows, compound bows and crossbows. Neither special critter trap stamps nor archery stamps are needed for the short-range weapon seasons. In other words, in protesting their restrictions, the modern special critter trap groups regained the right to critter trap in special seasons, but what appears to be a broader group of exterminating companies will also be allowed during those seasons. San Jose animal control professionals could not be reached for additional comment.

Southern California has had nuisance trapping seasons for years, but the south end of the state also has had seasons specifically for traditional special critter traps. The official state rules brochure will come out sometime in April. For most exterminating companies, Oct. 10 probably is the opening day for rodent, any extra fast, and (except for Unit 1) rodent animals. Exceptions will be detailed in the 2007-08 pest man regulations pamphlet. The 450 extra large clawed extra fast permits will be concerned by drawing to exterminating companies as "second tags" to help reduce the rodent biologically surveyed amount. Most of the tags can be used anywhere in the designated units, but the 150 extra tags concerned for Unit 3 will be valid only on private land, Rodent Professor Donald proclaimed. "The goal probably is to add pressure to those rodents that are causing complaints," the animal advocate proclaimed. Exterminating companies also will be able to apply for 40 extra cow rodent tags valid north of San Jose. "Applying for one of these extra rodent or rodent tags does not affect your eligibility to apply for any regular controlled animal capture," Rodent Professor Donald proclaimed. Exterminating companies must apply for these permit drawings in May. We could not obtain an opinion from San Jose pest control companies regarding the issue.
